Documentation of Draft workbench for v0.20

Post by Kunda1 »

Need some volunteers to go through the Draft Workbench related wiki pages and see if they are all up to date with v0.20
This means all Draft workbench commands, Draft Preferences, and Draft related Tutorials.

Once we have interested volunteers, we can figure out how to split the tasks up between everyone to make it lighter work

AFAIK the documentation of the Draft WB is up to date. Will check the preferences later, but those should be up to date as well.

Regarding the tutorials: expecting them to be up to date is unrealistic IMO.

Draft Preferences need to have up to date tooltips

re: Draft tutorials:

Current related Draft tutorials that I can find:
1) https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Manual:Trad ... D_drafting
2) Draft tutorial
3) Draft_ShapeString_tutorial#Insert_the_ShapeString

Any others I've missed?

This is not about the Wiki then? And which tooltips are you referring to?

OK, updating the Draft tutorials is feasible. But updating all (100+) tutorials as requested elsewhere (https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=68402) is not.

Still interested in hearing what you mean by this. I have worked on the Draft documentation including the Draft_Preferences page, and I do not understand.

That wasn't the intention behind that. We do what is feasible. 1 thing at a time. Some tutorials probably should be deprecated and not featured on the Tutorials page nevertheless.

I got my wires crossed here. I meant to also check if all tooltips are up to date in the FreeCAD preferences within the FreeCAD application. Nothing to do with the wiki page preferences although the tooltips in the application have informed me in the past to update the documentation on the wiki.
