Re: How do I move a sketch in an axis?

OK, I figured out why we are seeing different behaviors. I was using the simple position entries located under the Attachment Offset, while the troublesome results were coming from going into the secondary Attachment Offset task panel. I never use that task panel, as it provides little useful action...

Re: name FreeCAD 0.91 instead of 0.20, means version after 0.19 could be 0.91

just someone who has enough knowledge and experience that will not buy on cheap tricks. But that is exactly my point. There appear to be many thousands of users who thrive on "cheap tricks", as you say. Insisting that FreeCAD is worthless unless it can be used to design an Airbus is simply elitism ...

Do you realise what sort of people you're talking to ? That is just toooo funny. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: We have had this discussion before. Not everyone is trying to build an Airbus. But in light of this new revelation I will never question Your Excellency again. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol...

Re: How do I move a sketch in an axis?

Against my better judgment I will reply. Sorry for the long quotes, but it seems necessary. Emphasis added. I'm not trying to argue with folks. But being told there's no bug when I link the bug is.... It's frustrating man. Is expressing that "argumentative"? What would you like me to do? My post tha...

Notice that I said experienced users are not "hindered". I did not say that experienced users are not "annoyed". :lol:

The difference is that any issues can be worked through with proper modeling procedures.

Re: Splitting a sketch into two sketches

Do you mean that if I change non-construction geometry in one sketch, the construction geometry "equivalent" in the other sketch will change accordingly, as if constraint by "=" ? No, the sketches would be totally independent. I did not interpret your point #2 to mean that you wanted to later chang...

Re: Shape binder and sketch relation.

My humble and pretty uninformed point of view is that as it stands FC0.18 is pretty much complete and powerful as it is and stopping the race of development while rebuilding the core for future expansion wont hurt anyone from the user base. I believe you are grossly underestimating the challenges i...

Re: Splitting a sketch into two sketches

If you still want to constrain to the "missing" elements from the "other" sketch then a better choice would be to convert the unwanted elements to construction geometry (blue) rather than erasing them.

I wonder why is it marked as "minor"?
Probably because there is a workaround that may not be the most convenient, but does indeed work correctly.
