Exactly right. I could live with that if adding the extension isn't possible or too time consuming for the programmer.

Re: How do I load a backup file e.g. *.FCStd4

Thanks Yorik. I'll take your answer as "can't be done at this time". I'll file a feature request in Mantis.
By the way...
How many programmers does it take to change a lightbulb? (See answer in next eipsode) :lol:

Re: How do I load a backup file e.g. *.FCStd4

just remove the 4 from the file extension. I can't change the name as long as the original (*.FCStd) exists in the same folder. I don't want to do that. Is there any change the path to backups own folder? If I just remove the 4 in the FC "open" dialogue then it opens the original. I have checked pr...

Re: Fillet tool in sketcher destroys constraints.

No, as I said, the "no support" error can only mean that your sketch is not mapped to a face. It is not associated to the solid, so it cannot be used. There's no problem for a profile to stick out of the face it's supported on. OK. I got it that time. So now I've learned the construction sequence, ...

Re: Fillet tool in sketcher destroys constraints.

Hope this makes sense! Sure. Straight lines are always easier than curves. Just ask any NASCAR driver. :lol: Just to say, by "pro" I meant someone who makes a living from it. Yeah, that's what I would mean. It's someone who can take complex concepts and explain them in layman's terms. That's my ide...

Re: Fillet tool in sketcher destroys constraints.

Thanks for the tip on the link. External geometry tool... Got it now. Missed it earlier. I fully understand it. Are you talking about the magenta colored lines? Well, yes. Those would be the "tails" I was talking about. As for the hanging-out-over elements, that would be the horizontal lines at the ...

Re: Fillet tool in sketcher destroys constraints.

Could you please point out which of my sketches, and in which file, is hanging out over open space? I don't recall doing that. This thread - Second page - Fourth post down from the top with the link to your file, Part 007_pocket_normandc2.FCStd - Sketch003. It appears as though the boxes have "tail...

Re: Fillet tool in sketcher destroys constraints.

When working you need to work sequentially, always on the last feature in the tree, and not go back on prior features to map sketches on them. Otherwise you are messing the model up. Got it. That is the kind of info I need to find. Have you looked at the FreeCAD tutorial blog? http://freecad-tutori...

Re: Fillet tool in sketcher destroys constraints.

Then you forked the model by mapping Sketch002 on top of Pad rather than on top of Pocket. Was that your intention? My intention was to select a face, draw a sketch and pocket it. That is what I got from reading the instructions. I guess there are a lot of caveats to that. Where are they written up...
