Feature request: make comboview focus follow 3d view focus even when switching between documents

Hi everyone,
I find I can click on an object and that object is focused in the tree of the combo view, and I can edit the data for that object without to look it up in that tree. However, this doesn't work if the object I clicked is in another document.
It will be nice if ...
Thank you! :D

Re: Stretch in 3D

Looks like the sychronous modelling in solid edge. It would be nice to add position control of sketch mapped to faces parallel to the stretch direction, such as bottom alligned, centered and top aligned.
Thank you for sharing.

Re: Lattice workbench [development paused]

What I would like to have, is a quick selection filtering toggle buttons, Vertices are selectable/Edges are selectble/Faces/Whole objects. Sometimes, I struggle selecting vertices - they are way too hard to hit. In sketcher, we could have extra button for Constraints. Me too. Especially in the draf...

Re: Lattice workbench [in development]

2. Thinking on a analysis tool. Because it is impossible to figure out the content of shape (a compound of faces looks exactly like a solid cube). I think of a window in task pane, where object structure will appear whenever it is selected. Like so: Compound: Compound: Face Face Compound: Solid Ver...

Re: Select one of two coincident lines

You can use the box selection tool (shift+B) to select the lines, and they will get highlighted in the elements list, it may help you find the lines if you have many elements. Maybe the element list should use different symbols for construction and external features from other sketch features. Howev...

Re: Feature request: Hardlinks of part

OK, I just realised the modification mode is a very good solution to the situation when you need to change something in a complicated tree.

Re: Feature request: Hardlinks of part

I really like the modification mode idea. I solved my problem by force recompute the active document. What is the difference between "recompute feature or document (ctl-R)" and " recompute the current active document(F5)"? Can I pause execution of an operation? Sometimes I need to change many parts ...

FreeCAD is actually easier to use than solid edge.
However, I am a Newbie too.

Re: create variable, parallel Level/sections & sketches

You can try the workfeature macro. You can create a plane perpendicular to a line, then create sketch on it. There are other uses, I have just used it for a few times. The forum post is here

Feature request: Hardlinks of part

Hi everyone, I am using the assembly2 workbench. I want to have views of part of my assembly. But this also applys if you have many parts and you want views of a subset. If I can create hardlinks to part, I can put a subset in a group, and a single toggle visibility shows what I want to see. If the ...
