The tree system is the old freecad system. If you start an object outside a body (like in part workbench) it will be in a tree.

You need at least FreeCAD 0.19.23300 to edit my current sketches.

The linked solution is only a workaround for a function that is now broken but it was working before...
even more the miterangle are available in the bend, but it doesn't affect the result


Here an old release that is working correctly:

You are right, I may better have linked from the other post to this topic.

Set automiter to false to add mitre angle manually.

I saw that by adding a second line trim I can do the unfold.
I use Freecad 0.18 on MAC 10.13.
