Bug: layer does not change without motion

Simple bug with easy, obvious, work-around. In order to change the layer of some entity, select the entity, select the new layer, use 'mv' with reference 0 and target @0,0, and click 'use current layer/attributes'. The bug is that mv does nothing if the target is @0,0, even if 'use current layer' is...

If I understand what you are saying, the rectangular creation tools create line segment entities for the edges of the rectangle, which can later be selected individually to perform operations if desired. To select whole obje...

Debian

Hi Andrew, I'm new here. I only found out about qcad a few days ago. I hope to become a heavy user, maybe even a contributor. I've written a lot of C/C++ in my life, worked on software docs professionally, but not lately. I haven't yet contributed much to open source. I've been a huge fan of Debian ...

I do a lot of installs: A/V, LAN, rack, desktop, etc, and sometimes go on site to troubleshoot with a remote engineer in my ear. Smart Hands is what they ...

[solved] Operate on entire object (e.g. Rectangle)

Some of the folks in this post: https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=5852&p=21873&hilit=select+rectangle#p21873 seem to be struggling with the same thing, but I read the whole way through that forum post, and the p...
