Re: First time drawing a sketch, does not show external geometry

how does your preferences look like, and where is the sketch located in relation to the geometry that you are missing?

Sketcher_Preferences#Display
also reachable for any given sketch though the "view" property tab.

maybe a screenshot at your end will identify the issue?

Re: Axis of Transposition

random thought...

it would be a nice user experience if there would be an arrow showed in the 3d view if one has clicked in one of the attachment properties (the specific property is in "edit" mode).

Re: Export Selected Surfaces

if you have a heavy model, doing the full downgrade can be slow.

with curves wb "extract" you can pick up only the wanted faces,
and with part wb "compound" you can get it to act as one.

Re: Cutting a slot in a curved surface

it is really hard to 2nd guess what you want to do. anyways, the concept of a sketch is that it is strictly 2d (oriented however), so what do you expect to be able to do with a sketch mapped to that surface, a surface that is 3d, not 2d? is it those cut-outs? maybe if you try to describe your final ...

if you have not already figured it out by now by yourself...
PartDesign_Preferences

.18 not as good when it comes to respecting preference settings (and place of setting is different).

Re: cannot import name 'QtCore' from 'PyQt5' (unknown location)

hm, this is what I ended up doing earlier to get fc to run clean on a vanilla mint with fc installation from sw manager. is this really the whole warning messages, I think it complained on offending lines per file as well. do these InitGui files then already do the imports from PySide and not PyQt5?...

Re: cannot import name 'QtCore' from 'PyQt5' (unknown location)

presumably installed with software manager...

not saying that it is, but looks similar to what others can experience.

one thing you can try is simply to sudo edit the "offending files" changing the import from PyQt5 to PySide.
