Summary0002703: Add setting to disable automatic workbench switching
DescriptionWhen I rightclick on a "Body" Item in the model tree and click "Toggle active body" FreeCAD automatically switches to the "PartDesign" (Next) - Workbench and to the "Tasks" view.

This behaviour is not always useful when using Custom Workbenches.
Steps To Reproduce1. In PartDesign Next press "Create a new body and make it active" TWO times
2. Switch to any other workbench.
3. Right-Click on the inactive Body in the model tree
4. Choose "Toggle Active Body"
Additional InformationOS: Linux
Version: 0.17.8448 (Git)
Build type: Release

Considering the ensuing discussion in the linked topic, shouldn't this bug report be reworded? For example, "Add setting to disable automatic workbench switching". I very much like automatic workbench switching and would not want it to be prevented as the current bug description suggests.

You are right, I should have named it like this. Maybe @DeepSOIC can change the title.

As discussed, changed description from "Prevent automatic workbench switching".
