Open document without showing GUI

Postby mlampert » Tue Aug 27, 2019 5:14 am

I found this old thread: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?t=17246 and I wanted to confirm that this is still not possible (I looked at ickby's branch and it doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for - although I might not fully understand the changes).

The use case is to store templates of Path tool bits in regular FC files and extract the required parameters for customisation. Later, I would like to make a copy of an object (from that file) and bring it into the current document to apply said customisations. If the template document flashes up in the UI briefly it's gonna be a nuisance.
