Re: Bug #4123 - MacOS "Datum (whatever dimension) mm for the constraint with index (whatever constraint) is invalid."

From the console message it appears there is an exception which indicates some sort of unhandled situation in the underlying code. Since you are a long-term user you are probably well aware that the error trapping and notification in the Sketcher is much more rigorous in the current versions than i...

Re: Bug #4123 - MacOS "Datum (whatever dimension) mm for the constraint with index (whatever constraint) is invalid."

I have a simple sketch with a horizontal line (with horizontal constraint) and I applied a symmetry constraint about the y-axis. If I try that sequence I immediately get a red warning message in the "Solver messages" section of the sidebar. Do you not see that message? Capture.PNG If "Auto remove r...

Re: Spurious setup sheet ending up in toolcontrollers.

I should add that few times I have seen this sort of attribute error, widget not found, etc, was *not* in the Path WB. I suspect there is some issue with QT or Python, or ???

Re: Spurious setup sheet ending up in toolcontrollers.

I played around with this for a while, and I saw that sort of error after about 5 cycles of selecting the Job with quick clicks and then immediately canceling back to the tree. It was fairly repeatable, although the number of cycles varied. Exactly the same thing happened when the clicks were slow a...

Re: Normal Crashing?

when I clicked on a line it said I must select 1 line or 2 points even though I had selected a line and it was still highlighted. This often means that something in addition to the "selected" line is also selected. The warning message is the same whether there are too many or not enough features se...

Re: What is with the thou?

it will have some random number and a "thou" after it. You did not give the essential information requested, but I will presume that you are using the "US Customary" system of units. If so, that is the source of the mysterious "thou". A far better choice for units is "Imperial decimal". The US cust...

Do we really need the setup sheet in the tree at all? Do people use it there?
I cannot speak for anyone else, but I never use the "tree" setup sheet. I always use the Job edit Setup.

Re: Is there a simple Auto-Save?

I occasionally see a file or two in the autorecovery folder, after a crash. But I have never seen a batch of autosave files. The program says it is autosaving periodically during normal operation, but those files either are not really created or they are killed when I save and exit.

Strange.

Re: Is there a simple Auto-Save?

I have no interest is joining the argument one way or the other.

However, I am curious. I just have the default auto-save setttings, and I have never seen any of these ghost files? I don't "clean" anything either.

Where would one look to find these files?
