Sketch points arcs and lines selection issues

Postby callisto » Thu Oct 10, 2019 12:40 pm

Hi FreeCAD forum,

I am having problems during Sketch design.

In the past I used an early 0.18 and it was right no issues, and I made lot of parts.
At some point this yeas suddenly 0.18 started working with strange behaviour.
If I try to select lines, arc and points to be able to constraint them, I have to point precisely the mouse otherwise there is no chance to select something.

I improved a little bit by disabling the "Drag Performance" checkbox, which allows me to select the lines with better luck.

Using one 0.19 I got the same behaviour.

also on the Menu Preferences, at Sketch tab, the Show Grid doesn't seem working because I see the grid all the time and Show Grid is stuck on the screen. and Snap Grid I always set to Off.

The screen is a high resolution Dell laptop but I don't see any improvements if I change the App DPI settings for FreeCAD.

it is the most difficult challenge ever seen on a CAD... selecting parts!!!!.
Do you ever experienced this issue before, please?

thanks.
Callisto.

a good advice is always to get the main center it will grap it within 0,2mm Yellow Dot marked
but as it troubles grap your sketch move slightly and do a point constrain this will shure grap the center point point sketch point first selection
