Re: [TechDraw] updating Wiki pages

What about "TechDraw_ViewSection" to "TechDraw_SectionView", and "TechDraw_ViewDetail" to "TechDraw_DetailView". I am reluctant because I think "View" is a proper noun in the TD WB. Therefore "ViewSection" is the section of a View and not a section view of a part/body. And also more meaningful name...

Re: question regarding App::PropertyPercent

In my opinion, it does not make much sense to use a percentage with decimals. OK. I just had recently the case where i needed a range of 100% down to 1 permille and then you need 0,1%. However this was no application related to FC. I already wondered, shouldn't there be a property for every single ...

Re: Thumbnailprovider.dll

So I can implement to register the DLL file necessary to get thumbnails, I wanted to do so and in several forums I read I should provide if possible the DLLs compiled with the same MSVC version than the main program. So I tried to compile the DLL by myself. I was able to update their solution files...

Re: Thumbnailprovider.dll

Conncerning the thumbnails, there is an NSIS library to perform the installation of the required DLL. I implemented this now but the result is very disappointing: explorer_e9EuIZ4JYt.png Only 3 files get thumbnails. The problem is in my opinion that in the settings, General section, the option Save...

Re: [TechDraw] updating Wiki pages

they should follow this convention, [Workbench]_[Tool], where [Tool] is a substantive that can be used as part of a sentence I spoke with wandererfan and he gave his go. So here is a patch that would do the renaming: https://github.com/donovaly/FreeCAD/commit/d962680377c2c238393cf4f3db99f6c33e349ae...

Re: [TechDraw] crash on showing invisible edges

Crash should be fixed by f3c6db990c . Selection rules and active/inactive state adjusted too. Thanks! The crash is fixed but not the state. Select e.g. a balloon or whatever you like and you can see that the toolbar button never gets disabled. it should be disabled by default and only be enabled if...

Re: Thumbnailprovider.dll

Don't think so because the v0.19 installers will be changed not to require admin rights any more. However, the plugin must be installed as a shell extension to Windows Explorer and therefore requires admin permission. Note that you can of course install FC using admin permissions. So the user has t...

Monitor size is indeed an issue, but I would rather pack everything else in a submenu, but not the dimensions, and not the balloons. I use them most often.
The menu is not for the frequent usage. We have the toolbars instead for quick access.

Does the length of the Techdraw menu not bother anyone else, I'd like to see some submenus such as 'Dimension >' which would help with those of us who don't have a 4k monitor?
Thanks. I added it to the list and will right now try to make a PR.

Collection of TD issues, proposals and ideas for FC 0.19

Thanks to the rainy weekend I spent some time with TD and want to write down all the small things I encountered. This idea is to have a live list that will reflect the current status. Note: The list will only contain small issues that I think can be fixed/improved for FC 0.19. For general issues, pl...
