[solved] Installing QCAD 3.0

I have the CD for QCAD 3.0, It seems I never installed it 3 years ago when I purchased it. The current instructions on the web site don't seem to be for my early version. Do I need to purchase the latest version or is it available at no new cost.
Thank you

Add Application Icon to Favorite Applications Screen

How do I add an application icon to my Favorite Applications screen. When I right-click the application, I can only add the icon to Home Folder and Desk Top. This application was installed very simply using gunzip and tar commands. I have qcad 2.2.2.0 running in openSuse 11.4.
Thank you

Can I Create an Area with Enlarged Scale

I would like to have a detail area where the scale is larger so the detail is easier to see. This would be a small selected area of main drawing where I would make the part visually larger. I don't this is possible. It's just one scale factor for the whole drawing. Right?

Can I Place a Hole in a Hatch Area

I have a rectangular hatch area and it also has circles inside where I need to have no hatch pattern. Is there a way to do this. The hatch area fills the circle area too.

Please Critique My Drawing

Templates, Scaling, Printing

I created a template for letter size paper. Now I want to create a drawing where I will need to scale 2:1 to print. But how do I bring my part onto the template. The template will scale too which is not what I want. Help?

Templates...USA

I'm a new QCAD user in USA and I noticed that the templates in the library files are for ISO standards. I need a template for A size 215mm x 279 mm and B size 279 mm x 430 mm. What is the best method to create new templates for my needs. The A3 template seems the closest to my needs. Should I modify...
