yes, it is possible. But please don't expect me to do it, as I don't really see why it is so useful.

It is very usefull because of freedom of creating parts. You don't need to cut all edges on sketch (why to do that?) - btw cutting sometimes doesn't work well. 2nd pros is more features and more happy users ;). 3rd other programs have that (SW, NX, CATIA) - not all but some yes.

Disagree, stupidity is not to have an option. Rest is on operator side, he can blame after all only himself for use of wrong method.

Do you think there is an army of programmers working on FreeCAD, efyx?

NO.

Is what you're asking somewhat useful? Possibly.

Is it essential? HELL NO.

Are you willing to do something about it? If not then stop bringing it up again and again. :evil:

I know.

Agree, but not possibly, but for sure.

Disagree. If not now then newer. Best moment to do that.

Yes, that's why I try to force it over and over again.

You don't need to force! Nobody starts programming because you want... They start programming because they want and more importand what they want...
If you want a feature start programming...https://developers.google.com/edu/c++/ for c++. Python is almost everywhere and for FreeCAD related questions, that where the forum is for!

Getting on the nerves of everyone, what a productive way to spend your time.

Learn to code, or be patient. Or what about actually doing something useful to others with your time. But I guess that's too much to ask :roll:

Well @efyx did listen to reason in the thread he first mentioned this feature. Therefore i guess nothing wrong with some occasional passion and enthusiasm to demonstrate he didn't let go yet. And who knows maybe someday indeed Feature Announcements forum section will make sense regarding this area.

P.S. I did a few user centric tests and interestingly you can't Pad 2 circles made in a single sketch inside a Body. Trying to reproduce scenario like seen on the image above. Therefore ATM you couldn't create such feature when using a single sketch inside a Body anyway.
