Re: My first CAD file it is too slow, and had to stop.

@ MarkMcC, Thanks for the source. I could follow all until where you mention: "Replace these in the Property Editor with the standard 'AR-HBONE' pattern." What didn't you understand there? The full text was: Edit block 'plant11'. Selection Filter (GF) .. Hatches .. Solid is false .. Replace current ...

Re: My first CAD file it is too slow, and had to stop.

Hi, The most demanding culprits are in block 'plant8'. The major problem is that the file is very slow as it comes .... :wink: ... extremely slow with a maxed out timeout for hatches as I am used to. :roll: The original file will handle better every change we are going to make. :) First, reduced the...

Re: Scale value entry

when setting the scale for an individual viewport, you have to enter the factor directly; Correct. When adding a viewport, the list in the scale combo box is different and probably fixed in a 'AddViewport.ui' Options Toolbar widget. [1,1/2,1/3,1/4,1/5,1/10 ...] One could file a feature request ... ...

Re: Adding new fonts

Hi,
QCAD uses the system fonts.

Meaning that one has to install fonts in the common way depending your OS.
These are in general TTF files.

Under windows this is a simple R-click on the font file and choose to install it.

Regards,
CVH

Re: Layer toolbar

Hi, I did reflect on this ... Yes, and No :wink: The main difference is that setting a pen option is not an operation. It is setting the preferences to be used for any next operation that creates a new entity. Setting the current layer, is itself an actual change to the document. An operation. I am ...

Andrew, In 2016 you wrote: https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=4159&p=15048#p15048 The Object.getData().castToShape() construct is generally not a good idea since a data object is created (but not used) and a pointer to it's shape is retrieved which is well used.
