Highlight points

Postby AAN » Thu Jan 16, 2020 10:27 am

Hi.

I am learning FreeCAD and I have some problems with point selection. I have seen in some videos that when you want to draw a line between two points, when you hover over a line, FreeCAD automatically highlights the selected points, for example midpoint, and presents them as a solid circle. I imagine that for FreeCAD to do this it is necessary to indicate it in the preferences, but I cannot find it. I have already looked at many tutorials and I have searched this forum, but I cannot find the answer. Can someone help me?

Thanks. Regards.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Are you talking about Draft workbench? Then have a look at Draft Snap.

Hi.

Thanks for your wellcome.

Exactly, I'm talking about Draft workbench. Unfortunately, the page you indicate is not my doubt. I had already visited it and it doesn't indicate anything about what I want to get. What I want to appear is what you see in the following image:

In the video FreeCAD automatically detected the midpoint of the line and placed a white solid circle at that point. I don't get FreeCAD to do this. I think it must be something of the program configuration, but I can't find it. Where is it?

Thanks. Regards.

Hi.

I know that I have to activate the type of point I want to select (endpoint, midpoint, intersection, ...) in the Snap tools bar, but that isn't then problem. Although the button is activated, I cannot do what I have said in the previous messages.

Thanks. Regards.

Hi.

The problem is the same with the entire bar activated or with a single activated type.

Thanks. Regards.
