TechDraw Workbench

Hi Mario,

you are currently moving TechDraw Wiki pages.

The problem is that we need Wiki pages that will work with "What's this" on FC 0.18 AND FC 0.19. You e.g. deleted the page TechDraw_NewView but this breaks the What's this functionality for FC 0.18. Therefore I want to keep both Wiki pages until FC 0.19 is released.

A2plus Workbench

Hi Mario,

you changed today a filename. What do I have to know? Should all image files related to a2plus begin with "a2p_"? What about PNG. I used JPG is there any reason why you changed it to PNG?

thanks and regards --uwestoehr ([[User talk:|talk]]) 21:03, 12 February 2019 (CET)

deleting an image

Since you deleted today an image, I ask you how can I do this? I uploaded yesterday this image: is has a typo in its name that has been fixed today in the a2plus WB therefore I either want to upload it with the correct name or rename it to the correct name: "A2p_ToggleTransparency.svg"

hi Uwestoehr welcome

for the rename jpg to png , just the png file is free not the jpg

I don't understand. What do you mean with "not free"? the JPG- format is license and patent-free since 10 years or so. Also in the FC Wiki editing guideline there is nothing mentioned that JPG is not allowed and why.--uwestoehr (talk) 15:03, 13 February 2019 (CET)
I had again a look and I see that several Wiki pages use JPG files e.g. this one Draft_Offset.--uwestoehr (talk) 21:46, 14 February 2019 (CET)
yes and many other files in general they are old files now the preference is for the png and the svg.
Mario52 (talk) 22:01, 14 February 2019 (CET)
OK. But can you please add this info to the Wiki editing guidelines that people are aware of this? Thanks and regards --uwestoehr (talk) 23:26, 14 February 2019 (CET)
done in Editing#Editing_basics and Third Party Tools. If you find other page you can mention it
Mario52 (talk) 11:44, 15 February 2019 (CET)
I still don't understand. You write there that one should use free file formats. So why is JPG then forbidden? It is free: ISO definition available for free, implemented in all free OSes etc. Therefore please explain what the problem with JPG is. Also this strange patent issue mentioned here: is now no more an issue since the patent expired today: thanks and regards--uwestoehr (talk) 11:52, 15 February 2019 (CET)
too complicated for me, what I know about the png format I knew it here, but it's a good debate to propose on the forum to know more. Maybe this preference is no longer relevant.
PS: i fond interesting post Availability of icons

for the file A2p_ToggleTranparency.svg i delete it you must download the new file with the new name it is possible to rename the file but it create a redirection, personally i prefer to delete the file

Thank you. I reuploaded it now under the correct name.--uwestoehr (talk) 15:03, 13 February 2019 (CET)

Install_on_Unix vs. Install_on_Unix/de

Hi Mario,

today I extended some infos on Install_on_Unix with regard to openSUSE. Later on I wanted to translate it into german. I could remark a dicrepancy if I look in the Translator:

The english text with regard to openSUSE is vanished in the Translator. What to da?

Hi after modification in English page the page must be validated by one moderator for translate and only after the page can be translated. Done now you must translate and enjoy

Thank you. Translation Done.--Maker


Hello Mario,
With regards to Macro AeroFoil and Macro MultiCopy, why have you put the 'Temporary code for external macro link ... ' box at the top? Shouldn't it be at the bottom, under the 'Script' section? Because it's part of the script/code.

Hi Melwyncarlo welcome to the macroFreeCAD club,
The principle of the macro page: one code = one macro, your macro Macro AeroFoil and Macro MultiCopy (and others user code) have the code + the UI file ... 2 file minimum without image. I change the Codeextralink template without see if your code have many files and position it in beginning page
For this type of the macro you need another download system for this i avert yorick, Kunda1 and galou_breizh, maybe instal it as the workbench example WorkFeature.
For curiosity try this: Rename your folder Macro by Macro_Original (for not touch your original folder) create the new Macro folder run FreeCAD and tray install your macro
