DOF button in A2plus workbench is initially incorrect

Post by ruchg »

Start FreeCAD
Switch to A2plus Workbench (mine shows V0.4.54b)
Create new empty document
Press Add a Part from an External file
Save current drawing per instructed pop-up
Press Add a Part from an External file
Navigate to file and select
Once part shown press DOF
Label shows Free

Documentation states 'First Object will be Fixed'
Click on the recently added part, in the data tab, fixed Position value will be true in the Data Tab.

Click on Add a Part again
Navigate to file and select
Position second part and mouse click.
Press DOF button two times to refresh degrees of freedom - - first object still shows as free.

Apply constraint to second object.
Click on DOF button twice to refresh, First object now shows as Fixed

Should not have to apply first constraint to have the first object show fixed.

Hope this helps
