Summary0004383: Documentation: Sweep: Include "attach it to the path" step.
DescriptionThe documentation of the Sweep command is very misleading and misses essential steps:

Additional recipe specified by TheMarkster should go (analogously) into the docs:
"Center the profile to the origin of the sketch, then attach it to the path. (Select profile sketch, in properties select Map Mode property, then click the [...] button to open that attachment editor.) The map path parameter (a value from 0.0 to 1.0) can be used to position the profile along the path once it is attached as a means of testing how the profile will proceed along the path."

Was asked to put that in the tracker according to this forum thread:
