The Linkage Example - Step Dimensions (by Joe)
I loaded the Jansen and Whitworth examples from the zip file on the tutorial page. I can use "Trace Point" and drag the handle around and create the cyan curve as shown in the tutorial.

However, I cannot get the "Step Dimensions" to work. The error message says "Select a constraint".

Let's try the whitworth example.
> open whitworth.slvs
> make "g002-sketch in plane" active group
> add an angle constraint between the blue and the white line
> set it to 50 degrees
> make "g008-motor" active group
> click on "g002-sketch in plane" to select it
> scroll down in property browser
> click on "c027-angle" to select it
> choose "Analyze > Step Dimension" from top menu
> change "finish" to "70"
> change "steps" to "20"
> click on "step dimension now"
> watch and enjoy

There was no white line on the g0002 group, and there is an error which says "not closed contour, or not all same style".

Anyway, I used the horizontal line on the top, and followed the other instructions. It moved around, but not very much.

Enhancing "Step Dimension" - Command (by Roland Frank)
@whitequark
Any chance of enhancing the "Step dimension"-command ?
I mean, adding for example an option (tick box ?)
allowing for "continuous mode", so that the dimension will
be stepped repeatedly until "Esc" is pressed or something
like that ...

This might need some rework of the platform code, I think.
