|View → Workbench|
|Introduced in version|
This command is used to activate the graphical user interface (GUI) and the tools of a specific workbench.
It is possible to execute it in three different ways:
- the View menu,
- the drop-down menu, or,
- a Python command.
There are also two special options available: None (no workbench) and Complete[deprecated].
How to use
Often the project starts in a workbench, for example with Sketch, then continues in a different workbench, for example with Part, to create objects. You can switch from the current workbench to a new one with one of the following ways:
- In the top menu, open the → menu and select a workbench. This menu is always available, even when you have previously selected the Complete or None workbench.
- In the top menu, open the drop-down menu and select a workbench. This menu is not available when you have previously selected the Complete or None workbench.
Via Python console
- Type the command in the console, for example: Gui.activateWorkbench ("DraftWorkbench") start the workbench Draft. Always possible.
Start from the drop-down menu:
