Tank you i know that. To print on paper it's enough, but, to put on keynote slides for a meeting, the quality is to bad.

Usually it's the other way round: Print needs a higher resolution than on-screen. If you make a system screenshot (CMD+SHIFT+4) it has the full screen resolution. You cannot show more, even if an image has higher resolution. It rather might degrade the quality due to scaling.
You need at least FreeCAD 0.19.23300 to edit my current sketches.

I don't know, if my observation is related to the Win10 problem since I'm on OS X. But I also don't get any picture saved. Instead I get an error message on the console, where I started FreeCAD from:

Code: Select all

<unknown exception traceback><type 'exceptions.RuntimeError'>: Cannot save null image.

Once again: have you read the whole topic, and tried the solutions proposed here?

Yes, I did. None of the proposed parameters or environment variables solved the problem.
