|Summary||0003873: missing tooltips in the Draft preferences|
|Description||This bug collects missing and unclear tooltips in the Draft preferences.|
Missing or incomplete tooltips will be denoted in the Wiki page:
as '??' until information is available. If so, I will post them to this bug report to be implemented in form of tooltips.
In the DWG preferences:
The following tooltip has a typo:
- Path to ODA (formerly Teigha) File Converter -> should be "Path to ODA file converter"
(no capitals and the renaming was done 5 years a go so no need to mention it anymore)
More tooltips will be reported the next days.
In the DXF preferences:
Probably outdated are the tooltips for:
- Use legacy python importer -> is the new C++ importer still really not as feature-rich that it is worth to mention this?
- Allow FreeCAD to automatically download and update the DXF libraries -> I did not need to install anything to import DXF file or did FC only not tell me? Moreover, the existing tooltip has wrong HTML paragraph breaks in is.
- Group layers into blocks -> in the Draft Wiki pages a feature or property named Draft Block is nowhere mentioned.
- Treat ellipses and splines as polylines -> Are ellipses and splines still poorly supported?
Typos are in:
- Allow FreeCAD to automatically download and update the DXF libraries -> wrong HTML paragraph breaks
- Join geometry -> should be: "If checked, FreeCAD will try to join coincident objects into wires. Beware, this can take a while."
- Treat ellipses and splines as polylines -> should be: "Ellipse and spline export is poorly supported. Use this to export them as polylines instead."
- Max Spline Segment: -> should be: "When exporting splines to DXF as polylines this value is the maximum length of each of the polyline segments. If 0, then the whole spline is treated as a straight segment."
- Export 3D objects as polyface meshes -> should be: "If this is checked, all objects containing faces will be exported as 3D polyfaces"
- Export Drawing Views as blocks -> should be: "If this is checked, drawing views will be exported as blocks. This might fail for post DXF-R12 templates."
In the SVG preferences:
These tooltips miss information:
- Import style -> The tooltip doesn't tell that this also affects the line width.
- Export style -> It is unclear what the difference between "Translated (for print & display)" and "Raw (for CAM)" is.
Probably outdated is the tooltip for:
- Max segment length for discretized arcs -> the tooltip doesn't say what OCC version does not support arcs. Maybe all recent OCC versions support arcs so that this option is no longer necessary?
Typos are in:
- Use default color and linewidth -> should be: "Use default color and line width" (there is a space in "line width")
- Original color and linewidth -> should be: "Original color and line width"
- Max segment length for discretized arcs -> The tooltip is too long, so a line break '\n' is missing. It should also read: "...version of Open CASCADE doesn't support..."
