In https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Feature_editing , there is a grammatical error:
... After all, in FreeCAD, the a new feature must be touching ....

Thanks for contributing to the wiki. I had to ask back, because your generic post smelled like spam.

Hello, I was following the tutorials on the wiki and found 2 mistakes.

Page:
https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Topological_data_scripting

1. Old Python 2 print statement no longer works in Python console.

Chapter: Create a vector

Code: Select all

print myVertex.Point
Should be

Code: Select all

print(myVertex.Point)
2. Seems a copy/paste typo in the last lines of code from the "Create a face" chapter.
face -> sface (only for last line)

Chapter: Create a face

Code: Select all

sface = Part.Face(wire2)
face.isValid()
> False
Should be

Code: Select all

sface = Part.Face(wire2)
sface.isValid()
> False

FreeCAD still supports py2 (according to wmayer, until v0.19 is released)
So if you were to make a change it would be to mention both py2 and py3 options

Found 2 more errors in the wiki.
Please do not hijack this topic which is about getting wiki access. There is a 'Wiki' subtopic on the forum when you can freely post all your findings. ;) Thx

Thanks for informing me and giving me access.
I'll update the wiki accordingly and post any changes I find/make in the separate thread.

Hello, I cannot access the following post:

https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Sketcher_BS ... plicity/en

It says I need to login, but I already have an account logged-in. Not sure what I am missing. Any help is appreciated.

The .../en pages are not editable, they are generated automatically. What do you want to do?

Changes must be made on the page without any language code Sketcher_BSplineIncreaseKnotMultiplicity
