Re: Image on Face

I looks like (if you have to do that) you would need to make seperate objects and direct a .jpg on each one. So a box might need to be 6 plates placed to look like a box. Name those objects and adapt a macro to paint them with the pics. Certainly not easy!

Re: icon meanings in treeview

There are also some details that can help with the recompute (at least in Part design). For instance if you create a sketch and pad, then rotate the sketch using properties you can see some different behavior. If you modify the sketch attachment angle and press "Enter" you wont get an automatic reco...

Re: TechDraw Zooming

Ctl/Shift/+ does work for the zoom-in in PD but not in TD. I finally found a USB mouse and plugged it in to the laptop, the scroll wheel does work in TD, that's a good thing. I do see that all the options in View-Zoom are still greyed out. After looking thru the View menu pull downs and different wo...

Re: TechDraw Zooming

I'll try to give some status, on both my Win systems: In Part Design; Page-up to zoom-in works. Page-down to zoom-out works. CTL+ to zoom-in does not work . This is weird because View-Zoom-"Zoom in" does work. CTL- to zoom-out does work. View-zoom tools are available. In Techdraw; Page-up moves the ...

Re: TechDraw HLR parameters for section of a multibody

Look at the macros, you can learn to write them and set/reset almost everything.

Re: TechDraw: problems with snapping

This seems an appropriate time to bring something up; On my Win7 laptop machine I can't zoom in a drawing, CTL+ or finger pad, nothing works. On my Win10 desktop, scroll mouse works just fine. I wonder if some users experience this same issue and we don't know what they see.

Re: [SOLVED] view solid colors in technical drawing

How can I begin contributing in small projects? My car needs washing. :lol: What I found most interesting on the FreeCAD site is many things go in waves of direction and time, sometimes there are no programmers, sometimes the programmers make huge strides. It takes the right person and the right ti...

Re: TechDraw HLR parameters for section of a multibody

An issue with the gatlib view A-A, why isn't there a line between the two bodies? I could understand if there was one body but with two bodies I would expect a line.
