Re: Hatch problems

Thank you both! Ar-sand2 works perfectly.
Yes - 18 months with no problems (usually user error) is definitely good... I must be getting better - and using QCAD is always (usually) a pleasure.

Hatch problems

Hi Folks I've haven't posted here for about 18 months, which is a record. My problems started yesterday, when lines only partially appeared in both print preview and pdfs. Since the drawing started out as an engineer's drawing, almost certainly not drawn in QCAD, I copied and pasted what I needed in...

Re: Images and pdfs .... again

Sorry for the slow replies - working on other things at the moment, and just trying to sot this out before I start the report (very soon!). I'll try to be a bit clearer. The A2 pdfs will be just that - not part of a report The report will contain A3 pdfs. When I put 53 photos in a word document (rea...

Re: Images and pdfs .... again

Sorry not to get back to you on this - I've been on site rather than in the office. My goals are multiple: * A set to print out and check on site @ 1:50; as I only have a small printer, that means sections at A4, and I've already done this, as the print to pdf reduces the file size sufficiently * A ...

Re: Images and pdfs .... again

Thanks - I am on Windows 10, so I tried MS print to pdf. This helps a little bit, in that if I make a pdf of half the drawing, then the file size is also half. If you come across any other ways to make the pdf file size smaller, without changing the resolution of the linked photos, then do get back ...

Images and pdfs .... again

Hi again I am back working on the project with the enormous scaled photographs. I have reduced them by half (using GIMP) so that I can mark them up no problem in QCAD, but I was wondering if you could help with a related problem, namely the size of the pdfs I am making from them. Every time I make a...

Re: Another pdf problem

Thank you - it did help! Although, in my defence, I inherited the weird global linetype scale from the architect - but I didn't think to even look there. No wonder there were problems. Hopefully, next time I have to use one of his drawings, I will remember to reset this. While I am here, may I ask w...

Re: Another pdf problem

I still have the same problem this end, even after restarting computer. I am completely at a loss, especially as you could get it to work fine.

Any clues?

Looking forward to hearing from you

Another pdf problem

Hi again Same project, different drawing (still supplied by architect from vectorworks), new problem. This time with the lines (red and blue) that I've created in QCAD. Some of the lines disappear when I make a pdf - you can actually see this on screen with the print command. Even odder, parts of th...

Re: Linetypes and pdfs

Thanks very much! I haven't used the select layer command before - it's really useful (let's hope I remember it for next time...)

Linetypes and pdfs

Hi folks Just thought you should know that I have actually managed to finish the CAD for a couple of reports without asking you anything (I must be improving...), but I'm stuck again, this time with an architect's plan (he uses vectorworks) which came across as a block with everything on a single la...

Re: Another orthophotograph problem

Hi Husky Thanks for looking into this for me. Thanks to my developer husband, we seem to have solved the problem. Although the surveyor made the file size smaller, turns out he reduced the compression but not the size of the image. This meant that the total number of pixels exceeded the number that ...

Another orthophotograph problem

Hi again I also have two drawings where I can't see the orthophotographs, even though they are in the same folder. This is two out of a group of 10 from the same surveyor. At first, I thought it was because the jpg files were too large (in excess of 100MB), and making them smaller did make them visi...
