- click create datum-plane in the task-view

Nothing happens.

Workaround (and possibly, explanation):
Double-click the body to make it active. Then, datum planes can be made.

There is a function "UnifiedDatumCommand" that calls PartDesignGui::getBody which shows up a message dialog that there's no active body. But therefore the parameter should be set to "!bEditSelected" instead of "false".

@wmayer can you offer some insight how to proceed with this ticket? Shall i post it to the forum? Or perhaps mention something to ickby ?

The lack of datum plane is not a bug. Bug is that datum plane button does nothing at all, IMO. Either a message should pop up, or a line should be printed to console. Or the button should be simply disabled until one activates a body.

I agree with DeepSOIC.

A pop-up added in:
