@Normand , and salut , ce n'est pas de la french humour
Desolate for the bad traduct, there was no humor
I wanted to say that not mastering V0.18, I worked in V0.16, and I ask more competent to remake it in V0.18 (set to music - mettre en musique, et non pas maître en music)

I've not pretty much practice with PartDesignWB, still got stuck with PartWB :(

So, I tried to do it myself.

Outlet is a subtractive multisection pipe

After reopening task panel, second section isn't listed anymore :shock:

Also tree view didn't clarify cirumstances.

So how do we check, which sections are involved?

You can use the Dependency Graph.

Nice workaround!
But task panels or property editor should reflect all circumstances of creation at least for further editing.
Also, how would one edit used sweep path segments, after sweep is done. Redoing it from the beginning isn't a comfortable option.

Cool! :D
I saw this activity on github, but missed your Howto post. Will try some test, ASAP.

Of course they should! I think there is a ticket, but you might check.

mettre en musique
As I wrote, even in French, this expression is meaningless to me. Just like about 50% of what you write (if not more) because you make heavy use of regional idioms that are uncommon in Québec. I always try to communicate in international French but you obviously don't.

That is just one of many usability issues with PartDesign, unfortunately, this workbench has been orphaned for a year now. Occasionally a developer will create a commit for this workbench, but there is no longer someone dedicated to its development.

I just scanned the tracker, I didn't find any (unless it was reported in the wrong project). There's issue #3297 that you reported but it's not completely related to what's discussed here.
