0.18 Quick Reference Guides Are Released

Postby bejant » Fri Mar 08, 2019 4:13 am

I'll post the pdf's but if anyone wants one or all LibreOffice (original) files let me know and I can post them too. Some WB's only have a few icons, so I skipped those.


FreeCAD 0_18 Quick Reference Guide 02 - Common Menus and Toolbars, is too big (about 1.5 Mb) to upload, so here is a link to it:
https://nofile.io/f/g1xKSMJEWkb/FreeCAD ... olbars.pdf
(I've never tried this service before, so I don't know how good or bad it might be)




Edit: Fixed missing Quick Reference Guide 01 .pdf; I had originally uploaded the LibreOffice .odt file by mistake.

Hi bejant. Great piece of work. I strongly believe that a good software can only spread the world if it has a good documentation available. So congrats!

Just want to tell you that you posted the first as ODT while all other are in PDF (and, from your 1st sentence, your intention was to post eveything as PDF). ;)

Thanks! Did you create them manually or automated? If manually you may consider to concentrate additive and subtractive primitives in one subtable.

Thanks for letting me know, I've replaced that .odt file with the .pdf.

They were done manually in LibreOffice, and I like your idea of including the + and - Primitives in one subtable.

Thanks bejant, these are very useful.
I will upload a package to the releases page on GitHub. Do you plan on making changes that you and chrisb are discussing?

I think those changes will make the files a bit smaller but give me a day or two to look at it again. I probably won't be doing anything more on them today (to give you perspective on "today" time frame for me, I'm in the U.S.).

Done, that .pdf was 3 pages and now it's condensed down to 2 pages. I'm glad you had me look at this one again because in doing so I noticed that I had forgotten to include Mirrored, LinearPattern, PolarPattern, and MultiTransform. Funny thing is that I had forgotten them in 0.17 too but either nobody noticed or didn't tell me about it. :shock:

You're welcome, and thanks for putting them on GitHub. I did make the changes and have edited that post to include the revised Part Design .pdf.

I received a message from someone asking for the original LibreOffice documents in order to translate them to another language, so I'll post them here in case anyone else might also want them.
