Re: Logitech Mouse customization not working with QCAD

QCAD does not have any kind of special built-in support for that kind of mouse. However, I would expect for the mouse driver to simply trigger a key-stroke for these programmable buttons. Perhaps, you can configure something along these lines. E.g. configure a button to trigger F7 and configure QCAD...

Re: Drawing from template

As far as I can tell, the template might simply be wrong, for example in Millimeters instead of Inch. I'd recommend to load the template file (it's a normal drawing file) and check it for drawing unit, measurements, etc. Alternatively, you might want to create your own template(s) from scratch with ...

Re: Rectangle tool to create a Polyline Rectangle

I notice that the rectangle polyline object is not snapable to the center of the rectangle. Is this correct? Correct. There's no "rectangle" shape in CAD (or DXF/DWG). The rectangle tool is a convenience tool that creates four lines or a polyline in the shape of a rectangle. Note also the Snap > Mi...

Re: DXF tiling II

It's not entirely clear to me if you are trying to create a script (i.e. a program in JavaScript) that does that or if your question is something else. Thanks for your clarification.

I can select 'draw line from two points' and use 1131.9, 274.433 and that works but its not abundantly clear its the point in question.

Re: Tooltips nicht lesbar

Da stimmt immer noch etwas nicht. Entweder mit der QCAD3.ini oder mit einer Systemeinstellung / applikationsspezifischen Einstellung.
Wird systemweit der Darkmode oder Lightmode verwendet?

Im Grunde wird jetzt der Lightmode verwendet, QCAD denkt aber, dass es im Darkmode ist.

Bitte setzen Sie QCAD zurück:

Themes werden in QCAD ab Version 3.26.2 unter macOS nicht mehr unterstützt. Stattdessen benutzt QCAD den Darkmode wenn dieser im System eingeschaltet ist.

sorry, found that zooming in changes the canvas view from centimeters to millimeters ..
Please note that zooming only changes the grid density (space between grid dots), not the drawing unit.
