Re: Curves workbench

Here are a few more examples I made about this in the past, basic idea is to have a few basic profile shapes (ex line, circle and rectangle) available directly in the tool https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 57#p324957

Re: Point on plane with respect to another point

If I set dimensions to your sketch and equivalent attachment offsets in my model, the placement of the point is identical. So what is actually being sought? I have tested your solution only now, true they both seem to give the same result, as long as you don't start to move the main points around :)

Re: Point on plane with respect to another point

well, I still believe the above suggested improvement to the attachment mechanism would be the right solution, but one way to work around it (at least for some situations) is with a sketch... so in this example it is the Sketch that is mapped to DatumPlane_1 and DatumPoint_1 and then the DatumPoint_...

Re: [Feature requests] Working points, lines and planes

I agree with you on the "annoying fixed task view" and if you change the setting (Preferences -> General -> Tree view mode -> from "Combo view" to "TreeView and PropertyView") you will see that this is already sort of possible, unfortunately because of how the task view was developed in the past it ...

Re: Point on plane with respect to another point

This should be basically related to my request here https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=42169&p=357944&hilit=origin#p357868 that is that the current attachment mode should have separate definitions for the placement (support), origin and orientation. In your example the support of the y...

Re: Datum plane tangent to surface

the wheel event or keyboard event are set to +1 /- 1 when the value is in the [0..1] range, and for some reason limited to 2 decimal points. yes, should probably get fixed/improved :) here are two more variants of the second method that uses the TangentPlane map mode, which can give you more contro...

Re: Bugs/Issues Blocking v0.19 Release (+ WB/Addon devs check-in about Roadmap for 0.19 release)

It is not a critical issue, but I would find it as a nice usability improvement if we could Pan support with mouse in the Dependency graph view, and I am guessing that it would not be to much of an effort to add it? :roll:

maybe it would be better not to have just one toolbar but have it split in to several
Of course. These screenshots are just for visualising the icons in the context of the tool bar.
Any plan to put now the new icons in the toolbars? :)

Re: Datum plane tangent to surface

Really, I need to load the Draft workbench first, what's that all about? Loading it does what! You don't have to do it all the time, just the first time when you open FreeCAD. It is because the Line is from the DraftWB and at least on my system it has given me errors that it does not recognize the ...
