Re: TechDraw format spec will not apply

Yeah, it still won't show the R in US format even with the above changed. I even compiled the master branch and it won't do it. It does however work with imperial decimal. Should be fixed now. prefixFtIn.png OS: Linux Mint 19 Tara (X-Cinnamon/cinnamon) Word size of OS: 64-bit Word size of FreeCAD: ...

Re: Unable to print (0.18 final)

I tried TechDraw again just to be sure (and Drawing because why not) and it's the same log message that I get when trying to print the 3D view ( ) OK, that's a different problem - I don't get that message. I found a few posts on the internet about "cannot be used on non-native printers" but nothing...

Re: TechDraw format spec will not apply

It all works here as expected, with default metric units. The problem only happens with compound units - ft-in, DMS, yd-ft-in, etc. Decimal Imperial units will work fine. By the way I noticed that the "Caption" data property of a View works as expected, but the "Caption" data property of a dimensio...

No, it wouldn't. That needs a code change. Should be in master today or tomorrow.

Re: TechDraw format spec will not apply

I can't seem to get the Format Spec option to work for a dimension in tech draw. I've tried it on brand new projects with just cubes and circles. The dimension shows up, but won't respond to any of the formatting options. What is your preference setting for "Use System Decimals"? If it is set to Tr...

Yes, or even from a TechView page.
I can print or export PDF from TechDraw successfully in all the version listed above. I only have problems printing the 3D window.

Are you having problems printing from TechDraw and/or Drawing also?

Re: Unable to print (0.18 final)

I've just noticed that hitting ctrl+p or using "print" in the file menu doesn't do anything anymore. No print dialog, nothing. I've included a file as an example, although all you have to do is open a new document, draw something, and try printing it. We are talking about printing from the 3D view,...

Re: First drawing-stuck at instruction #2

It feels like I need to turn off the line drawing tool and have a selection tool for the mouse cursor, but I spent an hour trying to make that happen. What am I missing? How do I move forward? Hi John, welcome to the forum. If your cursor is a cross, then the line drawing tool is still active. Righ...

Re: Add dimension in 2D draw

To quote a 2D draw in TechDraw like: ProvaOcchiale.png the only way it is importing a DraftView of Draft Dimension? (In TechDraw there is no snaps...) Currently TechDraw linear dimensions can only use Vertices and straight line Edges as references. This is the best I could do: ProvaOcchiale_Arbitra...

Of course, there is one more I am working on. If "Show unit of measure" is ticked off in preferences, " ° " degree sign is missing on angular measures.
Lots more fixes to be made. I may have to figure our how to send you a case of beer.
