Re: Need the ability to bend a flat metal part

My interpretation of what the OP is getting at, if the component is to be 100mm x 50mm with a single 90 degree bend at the long end then the OP ends up with a component 104mm long based on a material thickness of 3mm and bend radius of 1mm. I don't see this as a bug or a problem it's just that some ...

Re: TechDraw - Can't open templates with Inkscape/Gimp

I think @fc_tofu was on the right path, the file should only have been 7Kb not 88Kb, attached is mine for you to try.

Proxy settings were added since 0.19.17651, must be at least 3 months ago though.

Re: [ Bug ] Std_AddonMgr: Macros list stays empty

I have just retested. The issue is still there in the version listed in my first post. Confusing... If you want some debugging assistance as there's no try statements so errors should be generated but you can replace the def retrieve_macros_from_wiki(self): section of src\Mod\AddonManager\addonmana...

Re: [ Bug ] Std_AddonMgr: Macros list stays empty

but I still get the message, "GitPython not installed! Cannot retrieve macros from git" That is a legitimate Warning as opposed to an Error because of the (large) number of Windows users who have the Python part of Git bundled with FreeCAD but don't have the Git binary. So there were complaints sta...

Re: TechDraw - Can't open templates with Inkscape/Gimp

Templates located on Windows LP12.1.2 build in src\data\Mod\TechDraw\Templates but I use a Data folder for Templates, Patterns, Materials etc so any build points to the same place.

Opened A3_Landscape_ISO7200_Pep.svg successfully using Inkscape 0.92.4, staying away from 1.0 for the time being!!

Re: [Feature request] About axis cross.

Just 2 remarks : Before creating a new setting accessible in the Preferences dialog, I think it should be thought if this is something useful for a majority of users. If this option is used only by a few ones, it can live as an hidden setting only accessible through the Parameters editor (and of co...

Re: Undo in Sketcher creates inconsistent constraints

I detected more weird things: If I select the faulty tangency constraint no constraint is selected in the constraints list if I select the faulty tangency constraint and show the corresponding elements only the point is shown if I select the arc above the faulty tangency and show the corresponding ...

Will try to have a look when I have a PC in front of me. ;)
I think I've cracked it, so without the previously mentioned changes to the Start Wb Python files etc, only changes listed in https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/comp ... 6:patch-27

Let me know what you think.
