Can't place the Working plane

Postby hhassey » Mon Sep 23, 2019 8:14 pm

Hello I have been following the FreeCAD, and compiling almost every week.

OS: Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster) (GNOME/gnome)
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.19.18284 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: master
Hash: cd8f0e0960d048032b6967edb9e8952541a5eb6c
Python version: 3.7.3
Qt version: 5.11.3
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.3.0
Locale: English/UnitedStates (en_US)

all off the sudden I can't use the working plane, If I select a face of an object and type WP, I get this error message:

Code: Select all

Running the Python command 'Draft_SelectPlane' failed:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/freecad-code/freecad-build/Mod/Draft/", line 78, in Activated
    if self.handle():
  File "/opt/freecad-code/freecad-build/Mod/Draft/", line 242, in handle
    FreeCAD.DraftWorkingPlane.alignToFace(sel.SubObjects[0], self.taskd.form.fieldOffset.Value)

'Draft_SelectPlane' object has no attribute 'taskd'
Please help!!!! Is this a known Bug?

This definitely seems like a bug. Recently Yorik moved the Draft SelectPlane code outside the file, and into its own file. He also placed the graphical interface in a TaskSelectPlane.ui file, instead of hard coding this in Maybe he missed a few things.

Give it a few days for him to fix it.
