Where do you see 'My Commands' in user.cfg ?

It is a little tedious to drag and drop toolbars for every workbench whenever new build/releaes is installed.
I am used to edit toolbar layout in "user.cfg" file. Then, I found SheetMetal toolbar "missing".
At last, "My Commands" is SheetMetal.

The version number is there because we haven't figured out https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD-addons/issues/105
I agree that version number is highly important when requesting help and reporting bug.
I just think how to avoid the impression of "pieces"/"fragments", as some forum users said.
Now, I know you will make things better. Thank you and @shaishe.
Afterall, these are minor issues.

Postby gordo89 » Tue Mar 31, 2020 10:07 am

I was expecting the two parts between the blue line to be joined. i have got it to unfold by introducing a gap but i do not require a gap in that location.

When you make the bottom fold you should first make the extend:
