Re: Point alignment function

Ah, now I see what you are trying to do. You want to both align and resize all in one go. I don't know of any 3d solids that have that capability in FreeCAD. It might be possible to configure the wedge using the expression engine to take placement coordinates from various Part Vertex objects for the...

Re: Lost workbench dropdown from UI

In Edit menu -> preferences look for the reset button on the lower left. I think this resets all user preferences. If that fails you can try renaming/deleting your config files. There is a macro findConfigFiles that can help locate them if you don't know where they are. Check the view menu -> workbe...

Re: Point alignment function

Make a facebinder of that diamond-shaped tip, then extrude the facebinder in Part workbench, 3mm or so. Change the taper angle in the minus direction gradually until you get a point you like.
