Re: How do I run a script that takes stdin commands

qcad.exe -platform offscreen -no-gui -allow-multiple-instances -quit -ignore-script-files -autostart myscript.js Yes, that's the recommended way to run a command line tools. Perhaps, you can delete some unused plugins to speed up the execution? Can I create a js script that uses stream pipes? I nev...

Is it possible there is a bug with one of my blocks ?

Re: Paid version Linux native

You might want to download the tar.gz package which can be extracted and run from anywhere on disc.

Re: How do I run a script that takes stdin commands

if I run QCAD as "C:\\Program Files\\QCAD\\qcad.exe" -platform offscreen -no-gui your suggestion doesn't seem to work? -no-gui can be used for command line tools only, for example: qcad.exe -no-gui -autostart mycommandlinetoolscript.js For more information about command line tool scripts, see also:...

Re: Liniendarstellung im Model-Space und Paper_Space

Das Problem hat mit Viewports zu tun. Allenfalls ist Drucken ohne Viewports eine Option.

Re: Trim to Circle Center

In neutral mode (no tool running), select the line and drag and drop the end point of the line to the circle center. To keep the line at the same angle, hold down the shift key.

Re: Paid version Linux native

Thanks for your feedback.

QCAD links in Qt dynamically. You can use your own downloaded or compiled Qt libraries if you prefer. Simply remove the Qt libraries that come with QCAD from its installation directory or replace them. The Qt version used must be binary compatible.

Re: Is the Nesting Feature Only Available with Qcad/CAM

Yes, nesting is part of QCAD/CAM, since this is a feature primarily used in manufacturing. Please understand that nesting is an extremely complex process, by no means a small addition or just a few simple scripts as one might probably think.

Re: Problem copy/paste a drawing from a file to another.

I cannot reproduce this problem here.

Note that I'm pasting into a new, empty drawing with the same drawing unit. If you are pasting into another drawing with block, you might have a block conflict (same block names with different contents).

Re: Printing / PDF Export Line type/weight - lines disappear

To make everything in the best possible way what should I avoid? Avoid the lineweights "Default" and "0.00mm" in layers and for entities as these might print with a zero-width (very weak or even invisible). I have learned that white is not a clever color.... White is fine and the preferred color. W...

Re: Core Dumped on quit

Thanks for the details. Yes, I can also reproduce this problem here now (only under KUbuntu 18.04, not Ubuntu 18.04). The virtual method call seems to happen in a third party library (OpenDesign). It could be an incompatibility. One of those really weird issues.. Let us know if the problem occurs an...

Re: How do I run a script that takes stdin commands

The easiest way to communicate with a running instance of QCAD is to start another instance of QCAD and pass some arguments. For example: 1. Run QCAD and let it running 2. On a command line, run QCAD again with parameters. Examples This will open a file in the running instance of QCAD: qcad.exe some...

Re: I cant open any drawings

There are several factors that can affect the Windows file dialog (network shares, external drives, favourites, etc.).

Can you try using the Qt file dialog instead of the native Windows dialogs?
