Re: In Sketcher, is there a clone-mirror?

The PartDesign MultiTransform might help but the sketcher drawing will be the most help when it comes time to apply a tape measure and drill. I don't understand that statement. The terms "sketcher" and "drawing" are mutually exclusive. A sketch is not a drawing. If you want a drawing with dimension...

Re: About color consistency.

Ok, but don't you think all edges and vertexes from a solid should be painted black, whatever the process used to generate this solid ? I don't see any reason not following this coherent and simple scheme, anywhere. That's your opinion, and I happen to share it, but who's to say that we should impo...

Re: position text on a beveled plane

There is no "Choose Point" button, the critical piece I see in your video. Have you changed any of the Draft WB preferences? How old is your v0.18? I just checked and I have the same UI as you. If you look at the time I posted that reply, I recorded my video 2 and a half months ago. It seems the Dr...

Re: Drawing with revolve, lines show a little off

And of course, full FreeCAD info - much changes between 0.17 and 0.18, and OCC version may be relevant (or not).

Re: Moving views, wrong config on my computer or wrong setting?

Sorry for the all caps, but... AWESOME! This is exactly what we (Jee-Bee, freecad-heini-1 and I) have been asking for. Thanks!!! :D One thing that may interest you: the way that all views move as a group when you pick and drag the anchor view (which was already the case in v0.17) is superior to how ...

Re: Fill in corner with wedge?

Maybe it's because my FreeCAD is a few weeks old: No, it's because you haven't enabled the extra BOPCheck as detailed in the wiki page I previously linked. But yes, your idea is better. I just realized there's another way to get a valid solid, but while keeping your existing sketches: sink Sketch00...
