Re: Trimex tool won't select "trim-to" line.

Thanks for the reply Yorik. I'll try learning something else until the Trimex is fixed. Chalk up one bug find for me.

Re: draft workbench has "active command" box in the way

I'm not a programmer either. My brother??? Yes. For many years. I'll have to ask him if he knows Python. I know that he uses C and C++ among others.

Re: draft workbench has "active command" box in the way

I'll look into Part Design and Sketcher workbenches. And thanks for that lead. I originally got AD when they had a 10 or 100 thousand (I forget now) registration push. A free download of the bottom tier package that was an online only proposition. I registered. Got my download. And then for $50.00 U...

Re: draft workbench has "active command" box in the way

OK. Your second suggestion works also. I now have a full side to side work area. I normally don't want to use a left pane when I am doing CAD work. It just takes up too much room sometimes. I use Alibre Design. I don't like their business practices and that is the reason I'm looking into FreeCAD.

Re: draft workbench has "active command" box in the way

Thanks. Your first fix worked just fine. I drug and dropped up in the taskbar area and all is good. I'll try your second suggestion in a few minutes as soon as I exercise the draft mode a little bit.

draft workbench has "active command" box in the way

Hello all. I'm just now trying to learn FreeCAD. I don't know if the things that don't work are the state of progress of the project or something that I am doing wrong. My current problem is that the "draft" window is small and I cannot get rid of what looks like an "active command" toolbar. I haven...
