Re: LinkGroup Auto Unlink question

One strange thing: The Visibility of the Cylinder link create at step 8 is set to false, although the object is visible. You can't change the setting to true: if you try it is immediately changed back to false.

Re: LinkGroup Auto Unlink question

Thanks for your answer, but I do not understand how this explains the behavior I have described. Both links are dragged out of the same group that has its Link Mode set to 'Auto Unlink'. You would then expect the same result. But somehow the link that was in the group before the setting was changed ...

Snap Parallel only works beyond endpoints of edge?

This had me confused for some time: Snap Parallel only works beyond the endpoints of the referenced edge. In the image snap parallel does not work if the pointer is in the area defined by the magenta lines. This seems like an undesirable limitation. OS: Windows 8.1 (6.3) Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit...

[ Bug ] Snap cycling only works if X coord input has the focus?

For some reason snap cycling (see Draft_Snap ) does not work if Length input (f.e. if you use the Draft_Line command) has the focus. There is a preference to change the default focus to that input box: Edit → Preferences... → Draft → General settings → Draft tools options → Set focus on Length inste...

Side note: The S,S shortcut of the Draft_SetStyle command is already used by Draft_ShapeString.

Re: Draft.scale no longer works

The forcedraft argument surprises me. I can't find it in scale.py.

[ Bug ] Draft_SelectPlane: issue with display of negative snapRange

A small issue: If you change the snapRange 'on-the-fly' (see Draft_Snap ) the value can become negative if you use the decrease key: "]". A negative value seems to work fine for Draft_Snap_Grid , but in the task panel of the Draft_SelectPlane command a negative value is displayed as zero. ...

Re: Align Draft working plane with Arch_Axis?

The algorithm used to check the selected object is a bit complex IMO. And as a result hard to document. I wonder if it can be simplified: If subelements are selected: Use those to calculate the plane. If a single object and no subelements are selected: Use the Placement of that object. Or would that...

Re: Align Draft working plane with Arch_Axis?

You can snap to intersections and endpoints of an Axis System. Other than that I do not know.
