Can you try the Appimage?
I have a sneaking suspicion this is related to display resolution / width.
What size is your display?
I'm at 1280 x 1024.
Can you switch to 1280 x 1024 and try this:
Part Design wb
Resize FreeCAD somewhat smaller than the full display
Make sure the left hand column (Model/Task view area) takes up some space;
mine is about 350 pixels wide, but looks like it doesn't matter
Switch to Draft wb
Click on draw a rectangle
Before even drawing anything, the 3D view area expands and cannot be resized smaller;
I have to switch back to Part Design to resize it smaller.
