Re: Why have bot "sketches" and "drafts" / Why can't I use constraints in drafts?

You guys know more about 2D drawing than I do. If you wanted to somehow merge "Sketch" and "Draft" into a single 2D drawing tool, what do you think it should look like? Alternatively, is there a reason why merging sketches and drafts would be fundamentally a bad idea? What I like about drafts: - Con...

But what about the people that don't like constraints and want to draft more manual? We also hear from time to time complaints about sketches and constraints being annoying :) I don't understand that response. If you don't like constraints, don't use them.

Re: About funding and all that

Hello, I would like to donate to FreeCAD on a regular basis through Paetreon. https://www.patreon.com/ I see that triplus already suggested the idea but it got no replies. Anyway, Patereon is easy. I don't need a foundation, I don't need a tax receipt. I just want to send $5/month to J├╝rgen as a tha...
