Re: Wiki page on videos

This is Russ the author of most of this page. My interests have cycled on, will be back to freecad in time. I will take a final ( for now ) edit pass through the page and clean up, inc. removing dead links. Coming soon. Checked all links, think all are ok. Fixed some typos. I am done for now. Russ

Re: Boleen Cut won't work - selected part goes black

Here is a slightly stupid response ( I take the credit ): I had a similar problem with the part workbench split. Much fussing around and retrying. Final solution: Restart FreeCad ( just like in the old days ) Not sure of my exact version as I run multiple versions, but more or less: OS: Windows 10 (...

Re: Modeling best practices tutorial

At the moment, the tutorial is a PDF, on Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CPTAFFaEBWFceXJP-86tF0LAvSi0l639/view?usp=sharing and I would like to put it on the wiki as well, but just wanted to get a basic version that people can comment on with improvements. Let me know what you think, ...

Re: Meta info on the Wiki, Feedback Please.

Just a small remark: Perhaps change the (already quite long) bullet list at "Possible Content for a new Meta Wiki Page" to subheadings, makes it much easier to comment/edit a certain part. Because the content does not really belong on the page I deliberately formatted it in a non standard...

Re: Meta info on the Wiki, Feedback Please.

A small detail: You add a space after each opening bracket and before each closing bracket. This leads to quaint results when the text is wrapped. You need to get rid of that habit. Sorry a habit from coding where I think it makes content more readable, and think so here when the wrapping you show ...

Re: Meta info on the Wiki, Feedback Please.

Regarding 'A Reader's Guide to this Wiki': How would a reader who is as lost in the wiki as you suggest, find that guide? Don't you think that a certain level of computer literacy has to be assumed (side bar, search field)? Well just as I would like a TOC page for creating/editing the Wiki I would ...

Re: Meta info on the Wiki, Feedback Please.

I do not understand your comments regarding the WikiPages : Looks like a great idea that is still incomplete. Has not had much in the way of major edit in about a year ( said Jan 2021 ), but minor edits have been active. Incomplete: I would prefer to remove information rather than add more. What do...

Re: Meta info on the Wiki, Feedback Please.

In my mind it would make more sense to first improve what we already have ( WikiPages , Help:Editing and GuiCommand_model ). Adding a TOC type page, which is how I summarize your suggestion, may well be a part of that process. I have been adding or suggesting because I am reluctant to change other ...
