Re: Problem with Draft Text display

7. DraftWB, ShapeString, complex Chinese character make faces at wrong position. Below test shows that ShapeString can handle basic compound path, but fail to handle more complex compound path. Font "simsun.ttc" is used in test. But all Chinese font files have this issue. Yes, the "islands and hole...

Re: Tech Draw multiple views keep moving when recompute

I use Tech Draw to create a dimensioned drawing. I am able to reposition multiple views however, when I recompute it moves all the views back to their original position. I can't seem to get them to stay where I place them. There is a property for ProjectionGroup called AutoDistribute. If this is tr...

Re: FreeCAD 0.18 misbehavior in virtual machine

(tried right now with last FreeCAD_0.19-19667-Linux-Conda_glibc2.12-x86_64.AppImage) Note that the original post involved a Windows guest, not a Linux guest. AFAIK, you can not run FreeCAD on a Windows guest due to the level of OpenGL support available in any of the VM drivers. https://www.forum.fr...

Re: Techdraw hidden line behavior

The new drawing views inserted on PC#1 show no hidden lines. Opened on PC#2, show no hidden lines. But, insert view on PC#2, it shows hidden lines. Save on PC#2, open on PC#1, first views still show no hidden lines, but view inserted while opened on PC#2, show hidden lines. I played with this for a...

Re: Techdraw hidden line behavior

Also, is it normal to have to select the Page and the object to insert a view? You don't need to select a Page if: - there is only 1 page in the document - there are multiple pages, and you want to insert the view into the page which is currently displayed. Otherwise, you need to select the page.

This commit git commit e3b5b0b177 should fix the issue with using fonts with CJK names (or any other non-ASCII paths for that matter). It should be in freecad-daily in a day or two, but I don't know how long will take to filter down to a Windows version for you.

Re: [ Bug ? ] TechDraw ArchView fails on some BuildingPart

Found using BuildingPart as source of ArchView (in lieu of ArchSection) very handy ! :) This is going to be a problem. We just put a check into master to only accept ArchSection as Source for ArchView because we were getting crashes if the wrong object type was selected. If ArchView is supposed to ...

Getting a datum point into a drawing? That wouldn't work?
Loose vertexes (or datum points I assume) don't make it through the HLR projection. HLR only looks at edges and faces.

We need to trap the vertexes on the way in, then re-add them after HLR.

Re: t=TechDraw/Leaderline question

I was working in 0.17, upgraded to 0.18. Leader lines (almost all annotation features in fact) were only introduced in v0.19. For v0.17 the state of the art was the Drawing WB + the DrawingDimensioning add-on. You could try exporting the drawing to Svg and adding annotations with Inkscape. Or you c...

Re: 0.19pre, DraftWB ShapeString font sizes vary among differnt font files

But in this case, the variation level obviously exceeds the font design factor. Can't download your fonts, so I am using others with similar names. Arial renders to almost perfect height, hysw is about double what it should be and simsun is a massive 7x what it should be. If I compare hysw, simsun ...
