0.19 issue with spacebar action on the tree

See the pic. When I mouse select a face the tree automatically highlights the last feature, that's fine but when I now hit the space bar it toggles the tree highlighted feature (not the body tree icon) to change visibility. I think that's incorrect, it should change the status (in the tree) of the b...

Re: How to do an audit, model to model? Maybe a WB

I have to say crashing is not the issue, FreeCAD is very stable. I have had maybe one lock-up in thousands of hours and I always have backups. The problem goes like this; in the middle of a design I get an idea and want to try something different so I create a new directory and copy the current mode...

How to do an audit, model to model? Maybe a WB

During my design I often save the model to increasing numbered file names, an old habit from prior CAD systems that crashed at least once a day :) . So now I am up to model_80 and Model_81 in a directory, I made changes to model_81 and would really like to know the one change I made is the only chan...

New macro "Vision4" for Part and PartDesign

I've had previous versions of my Vision macros. Please see the link below for good general directions on usage.

The latest version will always be on the first post.

Re: Sketcher dimensions autoconverting - how to turn off please

I would also like it fixed. It seems like anything that changes automatically just bugs my workflow.

Thanks

Re: No Preview thumbnails displaying in Explorer

Thanks, I will try it and get back. My confusion is based on why do I need to install a DLL on my own, why is this install not in a 0.19 version? Previews would be a great help!

Re: No Preview thumbnails displaying in Explorer

I'm confused reading this post because I have never seen a thumbnail on my machines. I have the preferences option set and always hope to see one. Is there something I can do to get this on my 0.19 installation running win10? I don't compile ATM.
Thanks

Re: Updated macro "Vision 3", check it out.

Thanks for the feedback. I imagine some users are reluctant to running a macro, they might think it could mess up there models.
