Summary0003555: Tutorial documentations:Creating a simple part with PartDesign
Description1) the mis-match color of icon "create body".
2) mis-match wording, tutorial shows " object labelled "Body" appears under the document label", propram screen shows "Part".
3) unclear instruction about section "Create sketch: ", on ready on screen icon as "Press New sketch", guess it is from upper menu bar with pull down arrow, but the icon wording is skecther not "sketch", and no prompt for "ok". Later found out it was problem between direction instruction steps and background of the command of sketch.
4) By section "Using Pad and Pocket features", before "...Click on Pad...", should add hints to tell to go to [Part Design] then click icon [Pad].

Unable to go further with the tutorial. Screen shows "In order to sue PartDesign you need an active Body object in the document. Please make on active(double click) or create one..." I tried clicking [Pad] both at the white sketch or green sketch. No length question dialogue box appeared.

That is all.

There is no mist-match of color. Reporter simply used the wrong tool and created a Part container (yellow) instead of a PartDesign Body (blue). All further difficulties result from this error.

The tutorial's introduction specifically mentions it is about designing a part in the PartDesign workbench, and it instructs to switch to it from the beginning.

Next time, don't create a bug report. Post your questions and comments on the FreeCAD forum.
