When is FreeCAD finished processing

I want to do something shortly after going into sketcher and need to wait until all the graphic processing is finished, it can be quite long with large models. Is there a signal or something I can test to tell me when the program is finished with it's chores.
Thanks

Re: Draw on opposite side of plane

Close sketcher and highlight the sketch in the tree. Notice in preference there is a map reversed, change that to the opposite. Then reopen your sketch.

Re: Image open crashes FC

Thanks openBrain. I saw a post where someone imported an image, I guess I should have asked them how they accomplished that feat. :)

Re: Can FreeCAD Draft workbench do this trim feature similar to AutoCAD?

@Jonathan, are you sure it's cool to post that drawing? A drawing like that should be drawn on a 2D type package. Once your ready to design the parts then you come to FreeCAD where you can make a 3D model with dimensions.

There was a topic that sized the pick window for snapping to contraints. If the size box is made large then making constraints is just like snapping. Maybe someone knows that posting?

Re: Unable to cut pocket from slot in PartDesign

I don't see any version info. Did the OP see the red/pink bar at the top of the screen?

I think it's time for a planetary gear in the intake fan. :) Really 85,000 RPM!, that's impressive.

Re: how to make a freecad image transparent?

Sometimes macros get put behind the main screen, you can use View-panels to check if it's back there. You might also need to restart FC. Another option in the same link, openbrain made a newer version that might stay visible (on top) better. I have an updated version but I haven't had time to test. ...
