I can understand the need for certain colors of individual faces, but what is the usecase to have certain colors for certain features?
I am afraid that there is something unclear with the notion of a feature: If you pad e.g. a cylinder on the side of a cube the result is not only the cylinder, but the whole object with cube and cylinder.

Well.. that may be my special "Use Case" .. if you want to show someone how a body develops feature by feature it comes handy to have stages of it´s development in different colors...


.. and even on BODY level it would make sense to have the same method of changing object in both PART and PART DESIGN ..
( remembering critics like ... no consistent user experience in the modules... )

I think it's more interesting to rename each feature, and eventually show only the first step, then the second, then the third... I think it will be more visual and simple. Renaming would allow you to know what you did at "pad 2" for exemple.

Very interesting ... ehm ... feature! Especially when educating modeling it may be useful


And you are probably right, that should be handled inside Part Design. I would even go further: The Part Workbench can handle the body as a single unit, representing the Tip to the outside. Everything dealing with the features inside should be handled in Part Design Workbench.

I would like to refine my visual property request...as meanwhile..maybe just last 0.17 Version related, occasionally ( not reproducable ) the context menu of a feature BRINGS UP the menu item for changing visual properties. So my new request is.. make that (changing visual properties of a single feature ) work consistently in 0.18 .

I posted this in this thread: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 6&start=90

If possible:
- turn on spacemouse steering in techdraw (zooming, panning)
- hole table in techdraw
- multi-shape sketch extrude with selection of areas
- operating from RMB like accept, decline (enter/escape everything/ all operations)
- detail view in techdraw
- sketcher in techdraw
- welding symbols creator techdraw
- intelligent dimensions techdraw
- screen ajust to first dimension - sketcher. This is very usefull thing and seems easy to implement. After sketching shape, when first dimension is added it doesn't matter if it is 10mm or 1000mm the line still the same and fitted in screen. Rest is proportial to first dimension.
- I really don't like that first you need to select edges/point and then choose utility. It makes that one utility isn't turn on until "esc" button. That makes each time, moving mouse very not ergonomic. It could be in plus, when you would have some fast steering under RMB or appearing immediatly after selection (what to do next).
- auto arrangement of dimensions techdraw
- split by sketch - part
- sketch 3d (SIC!)
- dynamic joints to existing parts - sketcher
- select other - when on object cover another RMB -> select other -> and from list (?) higlight which object is wanted to select
- sheet metal WB

I agree that it would be an interesting improvement. Even if it's not too hard to zoom to the right scale, it could make one less manipulation

I think I don't get it. For me, in Sketcher WB, you can select you tool (just tried with perpendicular and length)?
