|Summary||0003393: Configuration wizard when launching FreeCAD for the first time|
|Description||Inspired by this thread: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=27623&start=10#p223411|
Discussion thread: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=27691
But wouldn't the best be to open a configuration wizard when launching FreeCAD for the first time? Something like what LibreCAD has, but extended. It could give you the possibility to set your units, define your mouse model (explanation window required, similar to Navigation Indicator), even TechDraw template size.
Going further, we could introduce "custom profiles" in the wizard that would automatically filter the workbench list to different selections.
* Architecture profile would filter the wb selector to only display Arch, Draft, Sketcher, Spreadsheet, TechDraw and possibly a few others (Mesh Design? Part? Raytracing?)
* Mechanical Design profile would filter the wb selector to only display Sketcher, PartDesign, Spreadsheet, TechDraw, Mesh Design, FEM and possibly Raytracing and Draft
* General modeling profile would display Draft, Sketcher, Part...
* Complete profile would display all installed workbenches.

Hi. Just communicating we Wikilab (https://lab.wiki.br) are still working on that. We couldn't finish it before 0.18 and we are in school holiday period, we are in very slow pace, but but we are still on this issue.
