I have read the instruction for getting FreeCAD started but I can't put a single mark or symbol on the work area. Can someone tell me why?:(

Hi

I just downloaded this program because I thought there must be a simple solution.

There is, junk this counter-intuitive rubbish and download QCad or DraftSight, both of which work exactly as you would expect.

I gave up trying to guess exactly which combination of mouse clicks, drags and Ctrl key presses would actually produce something!

regards

To me all CAD interfaces are difficult to some degree or another. So I feel your pain! I know it isn't CAD but I can sort of draw OK in InkScape and I'm not half bad using xfig either. Nothing is like pencil and paper though.

Good chance it is the fellow who runs the project. I had a run in with the individual on their forum board. They have ah, personality issues that might impede their effectiveness. That is one way of putting it.
