I am currently trying to make it installable through pip, because of the Solvespace Python extension dependency. Should be ready soon.
You have the option to switch to single document mode, which just hide non active documents in the tree view. I personally find that mode is more confusing.
This is a bug, I've already fixed it. The PR is pending.-clicking or double clicking this second model tree document doesn't open the document.
Right click and CLOSE is to force close the document. It is useful, for example, if you want to replace that document with an older version. When you manually open the restored document again, the link will auto recover. If you just want to hide the document, close the TAB instead. This keeps the document open in the background with its 3D view closed, if the document is linked by others. If it is the top level document, however, closing the TAB will truly close the document.-i can right click and CLOSE the linked document from the model tree, and this throws a warning of some kind on the assembly document. recomputing causes the links to fail. the right click option to 'select linked object' is no longer available on the broken links.
I'll likely hide the link group actions in the future, and expose similar function through App::Part container.-make link group
--group with links
--group with transform links
This is the basic command to create a Link object to the current selected object.-make link
This command copies the externally linked object to the current document. There is also a 'Import all links' command that imports all external linked objects to the current document, which makes the document self contained.-import links
These are navigation command to jump to linked object inside its owner document. I'll expose similar commands into a global toolbar in the future.-select linked object
-select all links
There are other small features scattered around. I'll create a thread listing them when things get stabilized a bit.these seem to be the extent of the user facing changes from the big pull. i'm not clear yet which options appear in which context and what the nuances are.
There are commands to go back and forward to your previous selections. I'll expose these to the view toolbar later.
OK, I think it's a good idea to bind roll gestures of gesture nav style to these.
Code: Select all
App.ParamGet("User parameter:BaseApp/Preferences/View").SetString("GestureRollFwdCommand", 'Std_SelForward') App.ParamGet("User parameter:BaseApp/Preferences/View").SetString("GestureRollBackCommand", 'Std_SelBack')
