Re: about the new detail view dialog

Need your file. Not getting the same results.
I see now the bug is because of the property "Highlight Adjust" since its rotation is not performed at the center of the circle.

Take this testfile:

Re: about the new detail view dialog

The dragger is broken. What is supposed to happen is an overlay appears at the current anchor position and then you LMB drag it to the new position. This works now. Many thanks. However, there are some issues: 1. We have the preferences setting "Detail View Outline Shape" but no property to change ...

I can't compile FreeCAD either
You are on Windows, right? Then please follow as exactly as possible the steps I described here:
https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Compile_on_Windows

Don't hesitate to ask when you are stuck.

That's it. For meshes the back faces are on the "negative side" according the normals. ;)

Re: what does new 3D option "Transparent objects" do?

For meshes what are the backfacing polygons? I think a mesh is a concatenation of polygons. So is maybe the direction of their ...

[solved] what does new 3D option "Transparent objects" do?

git commit ea8d3bb2 implemented the new option "Transparent objects". What does this exactly do? (I want to describe it in the Wiki.)
