Description

The Draft SubelementHighlight tool allows you to edit graphically certain properties of the selected object, such as the vertices of a Draft Wire, the length and width of a Draft Rectangle, or the radius of a Draft Circle.

Unlike the standard Draft Edit, it allows you to edit multiple multiple nodes of multiple objects at the same time.

How to use

  1. Select an object.
  2. Press the Draft SubelementHighlight.svg SubelementHighlight button.
  3. Click on all the points that you wish to move.
  4. Click another point on the 3D view, or type a coordinate and press the Draft AddPoint.svg add point button.
  5. Press Esc or the Close button to complete the current command.

The tool mostly works on Draft objects: Draft Wires, Draft Lines, Draft Rectangles, Draft Circles, Draft Arcs, Draft Polygons, and Draft BSplines. Other object types must first be converted to these objects.

Scripting

See also: Draft API and FreeCAD Scripting Basics.

There is no programming interface available for the Edit tool. Each object is modified by changing its attributes directly.
