Draft/Mirror PROBLEM

Postby Edduardo » Fri Oct 04, 2019 7:41 pm

Hello, everyone. I was trying to find the option "mirror" in the Draft tab, but I couldn't find it (because I actually don´t have it). So I wanted to know how can I install this thing, because I can´t find a way to do it. Thank you you for reading (:

Your version of FreeCAD is terribly old. The current stable version is 0.18.3. See Download.

If you want to live on the bleeding edge, install the development version, 0.19.

Yeah, it´s windows. You were right, my FreeCAD version was as old as time. I downloaded the 0.17 version and it works well. The option "mirror" exists there, of course. I would have downloaded the 0.18 version but it had a problem when I open a new file. I already checked it out on other posts, but it was hard for me to udnerstand. They talk about something call Qt5 or something like that (I´m starting and my knowledge on programming is low). Thanks everyone! (:

Black 3d view? That's a known problem, FreeCAD is somehow incompatible with some graphics drivers.
Use any Py2-Qt4 build. For example, 32-bit installer (FreeCAD-0.18.16131.3129ae4-WIN-x32-installer.exe) of 0.18.3 from https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/tag/0.18.3

Oh, I just need to install another version? Is that version you say in 64-bit too?
