Re: Untraslated strings for stable release 0.12

I have found two obsolete strings in sketcher ts file that refer to sketchflat that must be removed:
"Sketchflat sketch"
"Create a new sketchflat sketch by starting externel editor"

typo to be corrected:

Re: surface smoothness and file size

Really great work.
Now is 1,6 times more one and 22 times less the other referring to catia files.. :shock:

what about the time needed to open the file?
currently it takes 5-10 seconds on my machine and same time to save.
The new version need more, less or equal time?
