Synopsis

This command allows to enter or leave the edit mode of a selected object. An object must be either selected (then it enters edit mode) or in edit mode (then it leaves edit mode) for this command to work.

The behaviour that occurs when entering edit mode depends on the object type. Some object types don't define any edit mode behaviour, in that case the standard behaviour (a transform widget) is used.

You can also perform the same action by double-clicking an object in the Tree View.

Scripting

This enters edit mode of a determined object:

FreeCADGui.ActiveDocument.setEdit("myObjectName",0)

This closes the edit mode:

FreeCADGui.ActiveDocument.resetEdit()
