Creating Planes Normal to View Orientation - New in SOLIDWORKS 2015

In SolidWorks 2015, you can create a reference plane parallel to the screen by setting an offset from a reference vertex.

 As shown below we have selected the vertex as the first reference for plane creation.

Now we click on the Parallel to Screen option and type the offset distance as 0 since we want the plane to pass through the vertex. As shown in the image below we can see the preview of plane being created.

In case if you want to make a change you can always edit the plane and use the Update Plane option.
