Re: Spreadsheet -- Is there a way to deactivate graphic recompute?

The losing-focus idea seems like a good approach, although you would want that to be the "freecad focus" as opposed to the actual keyboard focus. One often switches apps (e.g. to read mail) and then back. Treating only aliased cells wouldn't really solve the problem. It would help, but I often chang...

Re: Spreadsheet -- Is there a way to deactivate graphic recompute?

I need recomputes to be done within the spreadsheet, but not in the overall model. Could you give an example why? You can type your formulas, aliases, values, ... and then the single recompute will sort and update everything in one go. Working with the spreadsheet itself is fine; it's working with ...

Re: Sketcher Constraints checkbox -- What does it do?

If the solver reports an error, e.g. redundant constraints, then subsequently added constraints are not shown correctly until you remove the error. So if you have such an error and after that you add a circle, starting with autoconstraints and you make the centers coincident, they well can show dif...

Re: Spreadsheet -- Is there a way to deactivate graphic recompute?

Thanks. That works, but it's awkward because the hints for member names don't show up as you type; when you're in the formula editor you can't switch to the project with the sketch to look things up. Unfortunately, that makes it unusable (for me) in practice. OS: FreeBSD 11.3-RELEASE-p6 Word size of...

Re: Sketcher Constraints checkbox -- What does it do?

Is it possible that you used undo? I had been looking for an error and finally could reproduce it, see https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=46419. Werner has already fixed it. Please retest as soon as you get the updated version. Just saw that. I probably used undo somewhere in there. I...

Re: Spreadsheet -- Is there a way to deactivate graphic recompute?

See: https://www.forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=37060 Thanks. I didn't know about the skip recomputes option, but unfortunately it isn't helpful in this case. As pointed out in the article, I need recomputes to be done within the spreadsheet , but not in the overall model. There was a com...

Spreadsheet -- Is there a way to deactivate graphic recompute?

When manipulating expressions in a spreadsheet, each change seems cause a complete recompute of geometry in the graphics engine. Is there a way to turn this off and then back on? It can be very time-consuming when one is doing a lot of corrections / reorganization.

Re: Sketcher Constraints checkbox -- What does it do?

@chrisb Don't know if this is helpful or not, but I've noticed the mismatch in constraint display seems to happen after I have deleted some pieces of a sketch and added new ones. Unfortunately, I haven't noticed exactly when it happens. But maybe something like deleting one arc, inserting a guide li...

Re: Sketcher Constraints checkbox -- What does it do?

Please note than in 0.19 there is a new tool to activate and deactivate constraints, Sketcher_ToggleActiveConstraint . I noticed that in the docs, thanks. Constraints are not hidden. They are moved to another virtual space and you can switch between the two spaces so you can have two visual sets of...

Re: Links go out of the allowed scope

Thanks. It was unclear to me what the difference was between the ExternalGeometry tool in Sketcher and the ShapeBinder in PartDesign. If I have it right: ExternalGeometry makes items in the same body available for use in Sketcher ShapeBinder inserts an item in another body, which may then be made av...
