Summary0003858: Additive primitives of the Part WB should use existing task dialogs of PartDesign WB
DescriptionWhen you insert an additive primitive like a box in the PartDesing WB you get a nice task dialog where you can specify the dimensions etc.

When adding a primitive in the part WB, there is no task dialog at all. Since there exists task dialogs for primitives in PartDesign the part WB could use them somehow.

This would increase the usability because a visual feedback during the creation of a primitive is very helpful and currently you have to set the dimensions etc. in the Data tab of the Combo view without any visual preview.

Uwe Stoehr
This is not correct. In the one toolbar of the Part wb the first five buttons are supposed to quickly create some standard primitives. The sixth button opens a task panel where some further primitives are listed and there you can define the parameters.

Since there exists task dialogs for primitives in PartDesign the part WB could use them somehow.
Technically this is impossible because the PartDesign library links the Part library. So, it's not possible to use PartDesign stuff in Part as this would cause a cyclic dependency and thus to unresolvable linker errors.

Hmm, but this dialog offers for example no rotation and also no visual preview. The PartDesing dialog offers both. Also issue 0003857 applies for all primitives added this way.

> Technically this is impossible

OK. So let's keep this as feature request for an improved task dialog for the Part WB.
