Summary0002416: Auto update in freecad git6188
DescriptionWhether you tick or not auto update doesn't change anything. The solver try to solve the constraints anyway and the result message is updated. When the number of constraints is high, updating can take more than a minute to get the solution and refresh the sketch. So it would be very interesting to put constraints on the sketch without solving and to solve them only once at the end when clicking on the update button.

Hi the auto update is referring to the operation of the feature that the sketch is used in, not the solving of the sketch.

for example if you use a sketch to define a circle and then Pocket a hole through a Part Cube, if you edit the radius of the circle in the sketch, with auto update on the hole in the cube gets bigger, with auto update off the sketch is solved but the hole size is not changed in the Cube.

If your sketches are taking so long to solve then there is a possibility that they might not be good or best practice sketches, if you discuss this in the forum we could see if there is a better way to achieve the desired end result.

So if I am understanding you correctly, there is no bug here, but feel free to discuss it on the forum, we can open this up again or convert it to a feature request if appropriate, after it has been discussed on the forum.

Thank you for taking the time to create a ticket, but its almost always better to discuss matters in the Help forum first, to keep ticket numbers low and their quality high.
