The combo view is one of the main panels in the FreeCAD interface. It is located on the left side of the screen by default. It is composed of two parts; the upper part has two tabs for the Model and Tasks; the lower part shows the property editor, which also displays two tabs for View and Data properties. The property editor is only shown when the Model tab is active, that is, when the tree view is visible.
To use these views by themselves use the parameter editor. Create the following subgroups if they don't exist
then add the parameter
Enabled of type
Boolean, and set it to .
Then activate the view using the menu, View → Panels → Tree view or → Property view.
The Model tab shows the tree view, which is a representation of the document's content, including 2D and 3D geometry with their parametric history, but also supporting objects that contain data saved in the document.
The Tasks tab shows the task panel, which will show different actions depending on the active workbench, and the active tool.
The lower part of the combo view shows the property editor, which displays two tabs for View and Data properties. The property editor is only shown when the Model tab is active, that is, when the tree view is visible.
The View tab shows visualization properties of the objects, which only affect their appearance in the 3D view.
The Data tab shows the parametric properties of the objects, which determine how the geometrical shapes are defined.
The lower part of the combo view is the property editor, which shows View and Data properties.
