Re: Free Hatch Patterns

All the patterns I removed will be posted as they were exactly the same as before, apart from the QCAD-LOGO which CVH has kindly fixed up, he edited 1 line of the code that was making 1 side of the pencil shift...dramatically

Re: Free Hatch Patterns

Hi All As you are all aware CVH discovered that some hatch patterns when hatched far away from the drawings X Y Origin start to lose accuracy , this is due to the limitation of the number of decimal points used to calculate entity positions at that distance. Although it's not the norm to hatch at s...

Re: Hatch Patterns For Beginners

Hi All If you want to make Metric versions of these patterns simply multiply all the numeric values after the angle by 25.4 DO NOT MULTIPLY THE ANGLE BY 25.4... and 0 x 25.4 = 0 ;-) If you are competent with excel you can import your PAT file as a CSV (comma separated values) file and multiply all c...

Is there a way to make Ordinate Dimensions 1 Line

Hi All
Does anyone know of any settings that can change the default jogged line of the Ordinate
Dimension "I know you can hold down the Alt key to make it straight" but is there a setting
that removes this jogged part, so when I stretch a part the dimension text follows ?? See screenshot

Hi Husky

Thanks for your help and input yesterday, I've filed a bug report/feature request
I think it's a bug but I'd be happy if it gets implemented as a feature request :lol:

Re: [ workaround ] Negative values with ordinate dimensions

Hi Husky That works but it is not good, as it leaves the dimensions in the current positions what if you want to stretch it to 200mm ?? Very bad...this definitely needs looking at. Imagine a drawing with lots of cutouts and circles OMG what a mess... https://www.dropbox.com/s/e7rcmb2r8ls3v6e/Ordinat...
