@wmayer

Thanks for git commit 15b854b2a! :)

After setting my New Document Camera Orientation (in Preferences/Display) to something else than default top view, it works with the New document icon or File --> New menu, but it doesn't from the StartPage's "Create new..." button. Maybe some file in the Start module needs to be updated as well?

Pretending to be a developer :D , it seems LoadNew.py simply calls a python command to create a new document:

Code: Select all

FreeCAD.newDocument()
Would that be as simple as adding the line

Code: Select all

Gui.activeDocument().activeView().viewDefaultOrientation()
right beneath it (which works, I tried), or would there be a more efficient method?

What is the estimated date for the official release of 0.18?
Will it be April 2019 like when it was April 2018 for 0.17?

I guess we could do a little list of the remaining issues?

From my side there is only a couple of issues on the start page to solve...

Soon, I'll be uploading a 0.18~pre1 package to Debian just to get the waiting period in NEW started.
