Re: How to set default directory

Actually I have noticed that if I download a file from the forum and open it instead of saving it, then modify it as I usually would to help another user, then save it to re-post on the forum, it saves to /tmp/mozilla_bance0.

Re: How to set default directory

Re: How to set default directory

My version remembers the last place a file was opened from and goes there to open, the next time 'open file' is called.

Re: how to construct symmetrical sketches

I think I have modeled basically what you are after, you can examine the included file by highlighting various bodies/features/sketches and using the space bar to toggle their visibility. The master sketch 'outline' was created in sketcherWB and outside of a body, for speed I copy/pasted and drag/dr...
