Re: [Bug] The new equilateral tolerances are missing a degree sign for angles, also arbitrary under/overtolerances missi

I found them all by googling. But you don't need to do it by yourself - I'll send you a private message later today with the links I found. Thanks! :) Looks good, only one remark: What do we do with the case that e.g. the overtolerance is arbitrary but not the undertolerance? I would say we should ...

Re: [Bug] The new equilateral tolerances are missing a degree sign for angles, also arbitrary under/overtolerances missi

See my latest post. Besides this, I think it is best to look at the standards because there are so many buggy manuals around. Standards/norm are exactly there to uniform all the different best-practices. That is true, but unfortunately I don't have an access to the standards. Good thing that appare...

Re: [Bug] The new equilateral tolerances are missing a degree sign for angles, also arbitrary under/overtolerances missi

So I was wrong all the years :oops: and your fix to this is correct. Okay, no worries! Besides, you raised on important point: What if a unit schema puts up "degr" without the MultiUnitSchema as the angular unit? I'm not actually sure, if the "degr" should be repeated or not? It depends on whether ...

Re: [Bug] The new equilateral tolerances are missing a degree sign for angles, also arbitrary under/overtolerances missi

Where is this defined? Up to now in all my work positions, at the university and industry, the degrees was treated as a normal unit. Only for typesetting the ° is an exception since there is no half-space between the number and the unit while this is the case or all other units. In FC we have diffe...

Re: FreeCAD needs more authorized PR mergers

IMHO fixing that major design flaw is not desired for some reason. Perhaps once fixed FC would become a serious competitor for some commercial CAD systems. I bet they will/cannot answer to a question, which could lead to a more efficient development of FC. Nah, it's not that. I think the problem is...

I think PR 4314 solves the issue, but would appreciate other testers. Thanks!
Great job, thank you very much! :D

Re: [Bug] The new equilateral tolerances are missing a degree sign for angles, also arbitrary under/overtolerances missi

I don't see a bug as it is. There must only be ne unit, so either 12.50 mm or 12.50 ± 0.50 mm 15 ° or 15 ± 1° Why do you think it must be 12.50 mm ± 0.50 mm This is only necessary when the units are different but the standard recommend to use the same unit if possible. So 12.50 cm ± 0.50 mm is poss...

Re: Trailing zeros

Is there a list somewhere of what can be used? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Printf_format_string With the TechDraw Dimensions, you are restricted to floating-point numbers, i.e. f, g, and e. But I thing that most of the flags and field stuff might work. If not, it can most likely be fixed! :D

Re: Trailing zeros

Great, thanks! I went through preferences but missed that. I set it to "%.6g" as a safe default. (%.2g will produce "1e+02" instead of "100") It's also possible to put "%g" there, it'd give you as many significant digits as possible, but still cut the trailing zeros away. The problem is that if you...
