Absolute newbie to FreeCad here. I'm a fairly able user of computers, and know how to use things like Inkscape, and The Gimp.
That doesn't appear to be much use here though.
I can't find this exact problem by searching, so apologies if it has been asked before.
Basically I can draw the basic body of the piece. I can draw and dimension the box for the "pocket" but when I select the upper and lower horizontal sides of the box, I'm not seeing the second box which I assume is the "external geometry", so I can't progress any further.
I really haven't got a clue what I'm doing, what most of the terms mean, or much of anything!
I thought that by working step by step through the tutorial I might get some idea of how to use the program, and up to that point I seem to have managed, albeit with one or two hiccups.
Incidentally, looking at the uTube tutorial,
I'm at around 00:50.
It doesn't seem to tie in with the written tutorial.
Thanks in advance
