Sketch grid randomly disappearing when drawing

Post by fcusr » Mon Nov 23, 2020 8:33 pm

Hi!

When I draw sketch the grid randomly partially disappears as shown on picture. It only reappears when I finish drawing a new shat, which is not very useful. Is it bug or feature? And if it is a feature how to turn it off so that it would always show grid.

Attached image shows how I only have part of it visible.

Upgrade to 0.19 and retry.
You need at least FreeCAD 0.19.23300 to edit my current sketches.

Can you give me link of 0.19 for windows?

Your github page says:
Download the FreeCAD_0.19.*-Win-Conda_vc14.x-x86_64.7z file from the release page

but your release page only lists 18.4 as latest. Luckily it did not happen with 18.4 as well. But I am not sure if it was random or if it was fixed.
