Summary0004796: Error in DOCUMENT_TYPE field in TechDraw Ax_Landscape_ISO7200_Pep templates
DescriptionThe "Document type:" field in the title block cannot be changed away from "Mechanical assembly drawing". This appears to be to an error in the template.

This is in templates:
  • A0_Landscape_ISO7200_Pep
  • A1_Landscape_ISO7200_Pep
  • A2_Landscape_ISO7200_Pep
  • A4_Landscape_ISO7200_Pep

But not in:
  • A3_Landscape_ISO7200_Pep

Also as a minor design issue: Isn't "Mechanical assembly drawing" a bit to specific for a template?
Steps To Reproduce1. Open FreeCAD 0.20 (latest development version)
2. Go to the TechDraw workbench
3. Click on the "Insert Page using Template" folder button.

4. Select any of:


5. When the chart is in "frames mode" click on the green square next to the "Document type:" field in the title block. As a default it reads "Mechanical assembly drawing".

6. Edit the DOCUMENT_TYPE field with any text values. Click [OK]

7. You will notice that any text that you entered didn't replace "Mechanical assembly drawing", rather it just appends it to the end of this text.
TagsNo tags attached.

These are user contributed templates. There are other versions of these templates available.

You can modify the template and store it in an accessible location.

Solved by chennes

Modify all of the TechDraw ISO7200_Pep templates so that the DOCUMENT_TYPE area is fully editable, allowing the user to overwrite the default contents entirely instead of just adding to it. Bug reported by in
