Re: Bounty to fix Topo-renaming (poking bears with sticks)

I am also willing to throw some money in to help the person who finally solves the topo issue. I would like to point that time ago I tried to push fordward discussion about how to organize funding for FC in a more "institutional" way in the thread https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=122...

Re: Workflow ideas

And did finding PartDesign workbench represent a real issue to you. Being a new user? The first time I opened FC it was. I did not know wether that was what I needed. Maybe I was looking for the Part workbench and not PartDesign. Maybe I had to open the sketcher before I could extrude a part... I w...

Re: Workflow ideas

Hiding is one option. But likely the real challenge will be on how to improve the discoverability: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=32381 I believe discoverability is rather related to workflow also. FC has tons of workbenches capable of a lot of things and me myself haven't made th...

Re: Workflow ideas

I get that the most immediate solution to the "too many things shown" problem is to "hide" or "disable" things but that may not satisfy everyone as can be seen in this thread. I don't think that hiding or disabling is a solution because it becomes a problem for those who use things and now have to f...

Re: Workflow ideas

You are probably right - and it is difficult to see for longterm users. Do you think of newbie versions for all or some workbenches? Or do you think about a basic "Newbie Workbench" which contains only basic functions? What should be in such a workbench? The problem I see is that maybe the workbenc...

Workflow ideas

I personally find FC difficult to use. I would like to start a conversation aobut some ideas that may not be new to many of you but that may lead to concrete tasks that may improve FC. As a begginner, FC was very confusing me due to the high amount of workbenches available and too many options avail...

Re: Increasing FreeCAD adoption in education - Brainstorming study

How do you usually debate new ideas in the FreeCAD community? Is there any particular process you follow? As already said, mainly the forums. Do you see the need for a brainstorming system like CrowdMuse in the FreeCAD community? Yes. I am not a fan of the forum way of doing things. It is easy to f...

Re: Alternative GUI for FreeCAD: Overlayed Layout (Devs needed)

Maybe a more detailed list of tasks to be implemented could be made so that this can be implemented progresively.

Re: FreeCAD SUCKS!

Although I understand that one may feel frustrated I believe that the way of expressing that frustration is not the desirable one. I also believe the same thing of heated replies, they don't achieve nothing. Everybody here has an opinion about FC and it may be that the software sucks or rocks. I sim...

Re: About funding and all that

For me it's clear that there has been some movement and interest in this topic. I also have found that FC has some funding but maybe not using it to it's full potential. At first I imagined that there was little to no funding but there is some regular income. Given that I like very much the idea of ...
