Re: Control size of Detail View border

Your workaround suggestion works brilliantly! Many thanks. You're welcome! :D There are some downsides with the clipgroup method, namely that the clipping works well for the pdf export only (not for e.g. dxf export and possibly some others), and also that you'll unfortunately lose the automatically...

Re: Control size of Detail View border

Question Is there any way of controlling the size of the border (matting ??) around a Detail View or make it transparent? The rectangular border can end up being very significant compared to the detail you are trying to highlight, such that it obscures other items e.g. the drawing template. As a wo...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

yes, it was reported, it was an App::Link bug that saved path absolute and not relative, and it's fixed now. Please use the latest v0.19 built. https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/tag/0.19_pre As a side note, you can fix your old model to use relative paths by simply loading it in its origi...

Re: [Bug?] Section is missing edges for some section directions in FreeCAD TechDraw

Thanks for the fix, I can confirm that this also works as expected with the latest master build (versions > 0.19.18800).

Re: TechDraw: going to be useful

am not a professional drafter either Neither am I. But given I've seen drawings that say 1.00 +0.02 -0.01 being interpreted as "target value is 1.00, real manufactured dimension must be in 0.99 to 1.02 range". So if I see "1.00 +0.02 +0.01", i'd be confused if it should be interpreted as "0.99 to 1...

Re: [Discussion] Preparing for the upcoming v0.19 release

I really think it would be good to release 0.19 in the long term support version particularly because of two reasons: it has a much improved TechDraw, and because it supports Assembly4, installable from the Addon Manager . Users will test App::Link through Assembly4 and that will be very helpful to...

Re: Crash when selecting all in combo view

With 0.19pre versions running on Ubuntu 18.04, CTRL-A to select all elements of the document tree produces a segfault. Confirmed. FreeCAD crashed every time I tried this.

Re: Advice wanted on designing a c++ class managed by python: Constraint (baseclass)

I guess it's the code analyzer of QtCreator that complains about it, right? A few months ago I tried to change a few things to make the code analyzer happy with things like the export macro and a few other issues. However, the analyzer has big problems to understand forward declarations and thus wi...

Re: [Bug?] Allowed section area smaller than Body size

I'm going to remove the second half of that warning and the code that changes the SectionOrigin. If the user wants a SectionPlane that doesn't cut anything, so be it. I'll leave in the part that points out the lack of intersection. That's a good plan, I think. However, I wonder if it could be possi...
