Re: How to verify the direction of sketch lines?

That's indeed worth a consideration, although it may be unhandy when the task is to select several points and you always have to deselect the edges.

it is Body.Placement.Base.x+123.
If you type "Body.Pla" in an expression aware field you see this in the autocompletion list.

Re: Path Heights and Depths confusion.

Renaming to "Final Step Down" is indeed clarifying.

Re: How to verify the direction of sketch lines?

In the "Elements" section of the left Sketcher panel you can switch from type "Edge" to "Start point". If you now select an element in the list it will show the start point in 3D view.

If the user can't see the Mesh Format settings, how would they know they could/should change them...
They could read the docs or ask in the forum.

Re: FreeCAD daily 0.18 auto constraints not working

Did you reset your preferences? Please note that this works only with new sketches. If it still doesn't work, try the newest 0.19 version.

Re: Gcode for CNC 2D engraving

Seeing your other post I guess you have a ShapeString which you want to engrave. Have a look at the Path workbench, it can directly engrave ShapeStrings.

Re: Kreise auf Kreisbahn gleichmäßig ausrichten

Die 7-7-7-Regel und die Tatsache, dass die beiden ersten Punkten mit dem heutigen FreeCAD so übertrieben scheinen, lässt vermuten, dass die Sketch-Erstellung früher viel aufwändiger war.

What is the tool compensation you mention?
Tool compensation is to move the tool at the distance of the half tool diameter besides the target line.
