In which Freecad version the new features will be integrated?
It must be in +/- 0.18.14224
would it possible to have Part Box selection for Faces acting as the object selection? with a selective behavior left <=> right & right <=> left?

So in addition to the "normal" selection which is currently there I'd like to add a selection that selects the whole object when it's only touched on one corner/line/point.
It could be switched like in SolidWorks where it depends if you make the selection bottom to top or top to bottom (not sure which was which).
This is already implemented with the difference that it's not top <=> bottom/bottom <=> top but left <=> right/right <=> left.

new tool: Parametric Defeaturing... :D

phpBB [video]


This tool is quite sensible to "topological naming" issues, but it can be tricked to manually edit the Faces in case of reordering.
