What Torfinn is referring to is the Selector Tool's mode-- 2D or 3D, available when the Selector Tool is active. It's also available via the Local Menu when the Selector Tool is active.
I often read from Users here stating in one form or another that they want to work in 2D mode or 3D mode. I don't think there is such a thing (I would appreciate if someone corrected me on that, if that's not correct). It's only the Selector Tool that has the "mode". Using Deluxe, Pro, or ProPlatinum, the ability to draw 2D or 3D entities is always available-- I'm pretty sure that's correct.
If one draws only on the World Workplane, inserts only 2D objects, never inadvertently changes the objects' or active Workplane (User Coordinate System) to other than the World Workplane, never toggles the Selector Tool to 3D mode, keeps the Selector Tool toggled to 2D mode, and always keeps their view set to World Plan View, one would always being drawing in 2D only.
