Properties panel missing

Sorry I have to waste your time, I searched and can't find the answer. I reset my config file and now there is no properties panel. I use dual monitors so I have the panel separate. This is the second time I have had to ask this, I can't find the post or the option.

Thanks

Re: FreeCAD speed tests

To test the graphic card there could be a macro that rotates something (like the aeromotor) at 1 degree increments and then time a full 360 degree rotation. I would think a simple stop watch would do the job but then I time stuff a lot. I'm not a fan of web based stuff when it can be done locally.

Re: FreeCAD speed tests

How about create a sticky (or use a current one) and place a few files in it, this way folks can download the same file, obviously with creater permissions. I guess then start a speed test thread and see how it goes. I always use the Aeromotor for my at home testing, it is 8 megs. That takes around ...

Re: Wrapping a sketch around a cylinder

This is cool. Any chance we can get a revolve and make bent pipe segments?
Thanks for your work.

Re: formulas in the combo view...

With my experience using FreeCAD I would never type in complex numbers like that and expect it to work flawless. I use the program to work on models and I want them to be correct so I would bust out the calculator, do the math and insert the number. I'm after success not what the program will do wro...

Re: This CANNOT be this HARD !!!!

OP, this is a common problem when starting a model when there are no other visual references. If it makes you feel better I have a feature request to make an option to not change the view in entering sketcher so you can draw in the current view. This new option will be confusing for some folks becau...

Re: This CANNOT be this HARD !!!!

OP, when you enter Sketcher the program will sometimes flip your model around. You might think it's the wrong face but on that shape it is hard to tell. Try again but make your base shape more obvious.

Re: FreeCAD Is Fundamentally Broken: Topological Naming Inconsistency Problems

chimaera, I've been down the SolidWorks and Inventor path, I always feel like I am funding a company to design a 3D CAD program, not purchase something that's actually finished. They always make changes to the the product so they can keep you hooked, on the streets we would call them "drug dealers"....

[Solved]Problem with the order of objects in a body, bug I think

Addition...I thought FreeCAD was processing the tree but in actuality all it did was what I asked, it moved the objects order in the tree. The new selection of the last feature needs to be done manually. I need to make this quick and dirty. 0.1920477 win 10 We all use a loop (something like this) t...
