Automatically switching combo view to Task tab

Post by sliptonic »

Is this new behaviour? Whenever I switch to the Part Design workbench, the comboview automatically switches to the task tab.

I suppose this is an effort to streamline things for the user but it's not very FreeCAD-ish. No other workbench behaves like that.
Is this desired behaviour? Can it be disabled?

No, this is the behaviour for several years now. I am too lazy to search for the exact commit but it was done during the v0.17 development.

Two years ago an option was implemented to disable this behaviour: git commit 4617e5484ac2

So, in the parameter editor go to BaseApp/Preferences/Mod/PartDesign and create the boolean key SwitchToTask and set its value to False.

BTW, it's even documented: Fine-tuning

Yep, I tend to document switches when I introduce them. :lol:
