Re: Draft.scale no longer works

The second parameter is called "scale". You can see these in the docs popping up in Python console.

Edit: using positional arguments without the names works of course as well.

Re: Measure ShapeString Height/Width via python script

You can use the BoundingBox. To provide correct results the ShapeString must not be rotated then. If you want to rotate it anyway, place it in a compound and rotate that.

I may add, that To forst and To last are stable with respect to the topological naming, while Up to face is not.

Re: Body als jpeg exportieren

Der zweite Eintrag im Werkzeuge-Menü macht das, es ist aber auch nur ein Screenshot, den man ggf. noch etwas verfeinern kann (Größe, Hintergrundfarbe).

Re: Creating ribs to match complex shape?

You can either sketch the ribs from the side or use the type to-first if you want to pad to a non linear face.
