Summary0003201: Cross-linking of sketch visibility
DescriptionI encountered a strange cross-linking of sketch visibility that may be related to the recent changes to global/local scope behavior.

Attached is a simple object made in the Part Design workbench, consisting of three sketches either padded or pocketed. No errors are encountered, and the Dependency Graph and DAG View look completely OK. No interesting messages from the Report View or the Python Console. The final object can be used subsequently for Path Job creation without issue.

The quirk is that going back and reopening and then closing one of the sketches leads to a visibility cross-linking of two or all three sketches, even if no changes were made to the sketch that was opened.

Thereafter, selecting any sketch from the main tree and toggling visibility with the space bar changes the visibility of all of the sketches instead of just the one selected. The selection window shows the additional sketches are selected even when only sketch one is clicked.

The dependency graph and the DAG view do not change, and no other errors or messages are seen. If I save the quirky file and reopen it the cross-linking is gone. The quirks come back if I go though the same steps.

I went back and tried the same FCStd file with an FC version from about a month ago (0.17.11939) and the quirk did not occur.

I have tried similar tests with the second and third sketches either mapped to faces or not mapped. There is no difference. I have also seen the same behavior with numerous other files.

The behavior appears to be 100% repeatable.

Steps To ReproduceOpen any sketch in attached FCStd file.

Close sketch without making any changes (making changes does not seem to matter)

Select one of the other sketches. Observe that two sketches are selected.

If this process is done a couple of time all three sketches will be selected and highlighted when any one is clicked.

The issue is shown by this commit:

It's the change inside the function DocumentItem::populateItem which causes this odd behaviour. This has the effect that the selection in the tree view is not cleared properly any more and when clicking on an item it sets this and the cached items as selected.

The open question is if the above change is the actual error or if it only shows the symptoms of a deeper bug.
