Re: Freecad toggles visibility automatically when editing, how to stop that?

I kind-of understand the phrase (see pic) but when it actually gets applied, not a clue. And from what I read it seems backwards. I know now to keep it checked. ;)

I've seen this, I presume it's well known. I attached a file, if you open the last sketch and close it the model disappears.

Re: Questions about the TechDraw workbench

I export CAD direct from Part Design to 2D DXF. TechDraw will do many things you want to do but maybe not all of them as yet. I'm so comfortable in AutoCAD with all it's tools, placing limitations on drawings is very frustrating to me so I still need to export. The conversion from inch to mm is 25.4...
