Upgrade - Downgrade inconsistancy?

Is it expected that upgrading a line yields a wire, but downgrading a wire yields an edge in Draft? It would make more sense to me that upgrading a line would give an edge.

Re: How do I use keyboard shortcuts?

there are conflicts between short cuts both within FreeCAD and O/S conflicts. In your example with the latest FreeCAD from master Draft UpGrade can not work (u,p) because u is a general FreeCAD short cut for "undock of main window" so u first causes undock before p can be pressed. Ahh, ok, thanks, ...

Re: Interested in contributing to FEM

Hi crobar what O/S are you working in? Mint Linux 17, which is derived from Ubuntu. I've the default OCE and netgen from the repos installed. I've just realised though, that I did not have the -dev version of libnglib installed, which is likely the issue. For fixes for other issues I encountered bu...

Can I fuse an array of solids into a solid, and if so, how?

Hello, As the title, is it possible to fuse together an array of solids created using Draft->Array to create a single solid object? If so, how? I created the array using the GUI in this case, but am comfortable using the python commands as well. Thanks! OS: Linux Mint 17 Qiana Word size: 64-bit Vers...
