Re: Problem with coin.cameraNode.orientation.setValue(UP_VECTOR, ROTATION)

Thanks guys for your help. I cannot believe I missed that in the docs, senior moment! I assume that sometime later when the quat is used it fails a check and sets the vector component back to default. I guess I will just have to look at one of the other methods for constructing the quat. Once again,...

Re: Place window in a pitched roof object

Just for information here is what I get if I try the two different selections with no working plane set. Screenshot from 2018-07-27 18-59-57.png I am just wondering if this is somehow related to how Freecad translates mouse positions into the 3d space. The usual way is to cast a ray from the camera ...

Re: Place window in a pitched roof object

Hi, Thanks for the quick response. Sorry, I think my screenshots may have misled you. I have just realised that I must have deselected the face when taking the screen shot. It does not make any difference to the effect that I was trying to illustrate. I always select the face before I place a window...

Re: Draft workspace grid related drawing aids disappear when an imageplane is visible

@Kunda1 the Appimage FreeCAD_0.18.13971.glibc2.17-x86_64.AppImage works as expected. I will do the drafting with that and then switch back to release version. I like what I see of the new version. I hope it releases soon :-)

Thanks,

Roger
