Thanks Chris. :? I DID DO A SEARCH and I was told that the word, 'Workbench', was 'too common' and as such, the forum search wouldn't return any results to me! :roll: So, as I wasn't on here last week due to a lack of problems and everything running smoothly, I had no way to know this...

Perhaps we should have pinned the topic for a week or two.

I think pinning would be a good idea as it is going to affect ALL users. :D

The standard search with phpBB is the worst, most useless search currently on the internet. It automatically discounts anything that is searched a lot as "too common". Doh, wouldn't one think that searching for common terms is exactly what many folks want to do?

In any case, a better approach is to use a google search with the added bit, "site:https://forum.freecadweb.org/".

(Stand back, because I got 43600 hits when I searched on "workbench". Only 64 when I searched on "workbench addon".)

I have not tried, but I expect that other search engines have similar capabilities.

Welcome everyone!

I'm Hungarian, unfortunately I don't speak English well.
I downloaded FreeCAD for Debian10. (0.18)
I want to use the sheet metal feature, but I can't find it.
The addon manager only has 3D printig tools. No other.
How can I install?

Thank you very much!
