Summary0003393: Configuration wizard when launching FreeCAD for the first time
DescriptionInspired by this thread:
Discussion thread:

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.

@silas looks like development stalled. What is the status of the wizard ?

Hi! Sorry for taking so long to send a reply. It happened that the group had vanished, so we halted the development. Consider it will not be done by our group in the short term. Sorry for that and thank you for the opportunity.
