Description

While the page is under construction, add the Template:UnfinishedDocu template at the top of the page by simply typing: {{UnfinishedDocu}}

Insert here a short description of what the command does.

Remember to use Template:Version, Template:VersionMinus, Template:VersionPlus and Template:Obsolete when applicable.

For example: The feature to utilize App::Link introduced in version 0.19 allows linking between sub-assemblies etc...

Add an image if possible, and please follow the guidelines in WikiPages#Graphics. Example taken from Draft Line:

Optional: add a caption below the image to explain what the tool is doing.


Closing and opening translate tags should surround images, and other fixed elements, if they don't need to be translated. The caption should always be translated.

Usage

  1. There are several ways to invoke the command:
    • The Std Close.png Command name button from the toolbar (Editor note: Using the Template:Button template, it is necessary to link to command as shown in this example)
    • Using the Menu → Submenu → Command from the top menu. (Editor note: This uses the Template:MenuCommand wiki template)
    • Use the keyboard shortcut F then C or Ctrl + Z (Editor note: This uses the Template:KEY wiki template)
    • (Optional) RMB (Right Mouse Button) context menu: RMB → Std Close.png Command name
  2. Detailed steps as needed. Some steps may need Keyboard presses while others may require using the mouse to click on a Button
  3. Other commands may need to be referenced/used. Consider linking to their wiki pages along with their icons Draft Line.svg Draft Line or PartDesign Pad.svg PartDesign Pad
  4. Set options and press OK.
