I didn't see this at the time as my forum id is FreddyFreddy. berniev is my GitHub id. I suppose I should start being berniev on the forum!?
It's OK. Many people have different forum and GH accounts and from the context it's usually quite clear who is who.

Re: Attributing FreeCAD in workbench

Is there an explicit section that allows this? This is the whole point of the LGPL compared to the GPL.

And each time you press the Apply button of any preference pack the more duplicates you get in the combo box. Affected are also the combo boxes for the list of style sheets and the ...
