add the option to change colors for dimensions, lines, hidden lines, etc.pablogil wrote:...

when adding a new view, the "custom scale" field could be a numeric field in order to have the typical arrows to increase/decrease steps... much useful than typing a number

is it possible that when you press the green square when editing template texts the actual text is selected so that you can easily start typing and delete the default one? is just an usability improvement
>>> yes, it is possible. the dialog box was easier. seems reasonable.
as previously mentioned it would be useful to add more usability to dimension creation, I would suggest:
1) if any line, points, etc are selected, when pressing the dimension icon it creates just one dimension
2) if anything is selected and the dimension icon is pressed the "tool" enters in "continuous mode" so that every time you select a line or points it is created a dimension
>>> 1) & 2) are the same? But a "continuous mode" could be useful. Not sure how to do it off hand, but I'll think about it.
Finally, I found an important bug: in OSX if you select an arc an press the "radius dimension icon" FreeCAD crashes and closes
>>> I don't get this here (ubuntu). Is it in all radii or just in 1 file? If just 1 file, can you share it?
Thanks for the feedback!
