Re: PPA gave me v0.15 [solved]

Making this solved because problem in title was solved by not installing the feecad-doc package. Note i was also able to install freecad-doc after doing the freecad upgrade. I've googled a bit about the side by side installs for 0.16 and Daily. No luck, even though I'm sure I have seen something bef...

Re: PPA gave me v0.15

Update

I found this thread https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?t=36199
which sugested removing the freecad-docs from the cli command. Which got me running v0.18.1.

Now I just need legacy and daily builds too.... I think there is a link for that. I'll be back after a google.

Re: [0.17 PDN] How to engrave a ShapeString in a PDN-Body
