Re: add a obj to a group, but keep it in another group

If does not mention such posibility in the docs Std_Group and since Group manages its subelements visibility I dont think you can have an object both visible and invisible...

Re: build models so features can be edited later without errors?

You can use "Refine" on the last feature before the PD fillet to remove the extra geometry left from previous operations and it will work better (most of the time):

Re: Rotate a profile perpendicular to an edge

You can use sketch attachment:

Or use some extra geometry and expressions to calculate the angle. What do you want to achieve?

Re: [Part Design] how to mirror a box

There is definitelly something strange here. See where the box primitive is mirrored with a cylinder primitive mapped to its side: . Weird primitive mirror.JPG . I think since it is not a simple geometry but a primitive that needs attachment when created it has to take it from somewhere and takes it...

Re: Crowdin question: multiple translations for the same word

Homonyms you cant simply translate words without context. How does the translation engine handle this?

Re: Trying to pocket a sketch causes body to disappear

Not sure what you tried and why it failed. But here is an example of what I had in mind:

All your sketches are mapped to faces of previous features. For now this works but is bad practice in FreeCAD due to Topological naming issues that may arise when you modify previous features.

Re: Trying to pocket a sketch causes body to disappear

Why the Pad001/Pocket010 combo when this can be a simple Pad?
If you have mirored features better do them that way or use a single sketch to form them.
For the pocket you need separate noncrossing/nontouching loops for it to work properly.

Re: can't perform pocket through all

There is missalignment in the long side of the last pocket sketch with the previous pad sketch. This probably produces some wrong geometry.
