Re: FreeCAD 0.19: macOS Big Sur: stuck on launch

Hmm, seems I spoke too soon! Actually my SpaceNavigator is working on the Freecad version I'm using on Mac, I had just assumed it had never been fixed and not tried!!!!

Re: Part Design Next: sweep

Sorry, I didn't mean to reopen the question again (indeed, that solution works nicely!) - just pointing out that I had forgotten I had even asked the question before, let alone what the solution was ;)

Re: Part Design Next: sweep

So, was needing to do this today, wanting to model the back of a chair.

I couldn't figure it out at first, but after a bit of googling I got it working in the Part module.

Only to notice this post in a tab I had opened but not read....

I must be getting old!!!!!

Re: Arch or Bim No Grid

I have the same issue in MacOS, I'm still on Mojave, and on a fairly recent version of FreeCAD 0.19 - can't get a grid to display!

Hi All, I'm getting an error when I try and sweep a circle along what I thought was a fairly simple path. It happens when I add the curved edge in the picture below. Can anyone suggest what the cause might be? System info below and file attached. Thanks! Brutha Screenshot 2020-03-07 at 16.55.59.png ...

Re: OSX Mojave - Grid

I’m running Mojave and everything goes fine here. Have you double checked if you have similar colors for background and the grid color? Maybe it is there but you can’t see it...
