Summary0000848: [PartDesign] Keep Transparency and Colors when adding a feature

It would be nice if transparency + colors (solid color and color-per-face) are not lost when adding a feature to a solid (such as Pad, Pocket, Groove, Revolution, and Patterns).

0.14 should get robust references (Or Names, I do not know how it will be called). Maybe this should wait until that is implemented.

Wouldn't this be part of the new PartDesign? I haven't used it for a while. Shouldn't only the Body Feature be the only feature that can have the material properties set...

I am not sure of the current applicability of this issue:
1. Keeping transparency, I just fixed this a couple of days ago.
2. Per face colors, I do not think it is currently possible with PD NEXT (I do not know how at least).

Maybe this feature request should be updated/rewritten in line with the current user requirements for v0.17 PD NEXT.

@Abdullah what commit did you add for number 1?
Since this ticket is old I'm not sure @pperisin will respond to point number 2. How to proceed if not?

Face per color is a feature PD should have. So I think that a feature request asking for this is appropriate.

We should have a procedure for those cases where part of a bug is fixed but not the whole and the same for feature request. Something like splitting a ticket into two, so that one can be marked as fixed while the other remains open. Or a new ticket deriving from an old one...

@abdullah I'd be happy to clone this ticket and you can edit the clone so that it's rewritten correctly to PDN specs?

Fixed by commit b53c12d3 for the whole body transparency, separate issue 0003028 was created for face color and transparency.
