For all the newbies using Ubuntu...

I have Ubuntu 7.10, but I think most of the new versions should work the same. On your desktop just go to Applications-Add/Remove Programs and type qcad in the search window. This will bring up the list of in the programs and just make sure you check QCAD and click/apply changes to install it. That'...

Thanks...

Well, somehow I got it going. I decided to start over and set my specs first so I think that helped even though I know it shouldn't matter. It's just taking me longer to get used to how the program is set up. I'm fighting the urge to stop tinkering with it though. Now I got a question for anyone in ...

Actual size dimensions

Hi. I was wondering if there's a way to print the actual size drawing not the zooming of the drawing. You can just click on the scale number as you mentioned and zoom in and out, this will give you what the first person asked. I would like to print my drawing to scale now. How would I go about doing...

Found the printing problem

Just go to Modify-Properties, then click on the line you want to change and change the line width to .13mm ISO. This will show you what you have when you print preview your drawing. Why does the program default to something you can't see from the beginning, I have no idea. Now I just need to know wh...

Okay

I got a rectangle and a label with a number on it. I don't want to say it's the dimension since I'm still not connecting the dots on that. In any case I figure it this is all this program needs, then I should be able to print preview and print it out right, nope. I get a blank page and it prints a b...

Okay...

The label representation does make sense to me. I guess I'm still trying to figure out/visualize how Qcad deals with these. I'm just thinking in 3 Dimensional cad drawings. I know for 2D we just have the front, top and side which is all I want to do with this. I'll keep hacking at this and maybe thi...

I think I got it...

I thought about your correction and tried my suggestion for the label, then I changed it and the number did change. Now, does this mean that this is my measurement and does this mean that the actual drawing doesn't really resize to any measurements you use because it really doesn't care about that i...

Thanks Andrew

Just to clarify that for the newbies like me...

This is under - Modify-Properties, then just click on the line you want to change the labels to.

Do you know where I can change the actual dimension number though? I can't seem to find this yet.

Okay newbies, here's the right answer for this

I just found half of the answer to my own question. But thanks for trying guys. 1. This is a very simple procedure as I knew it was. 2. The reason you can't see any dimensions it's because you need to go to edit-current drawing preferences-dimensions-and make those numbers big so you can see your di...

Still not there...

okay, I tried jonboy steps and I just create lines. I also check the freeform to make sure nothing snaps anywhere else. I do keep an eye on the command line and did follow that, but I'm I missing something else? So does qcad only makes extension lines as a dimension and the label is supposed to be t...

First drawing and dimensions...

Hi. I just installed qcad under Ubuntu and well, I went through the manual and just can't get this dimensions working properly. So let me start with what I would like to do. 1. I want to create a 7.5 (L) X 5.5 (W) inches metal plate with holes on it. Thickness say 1/8th of an inch. 2. I can create a...
