Your suggestion sounds very good at first. However, if you think it through you will quickly realize that it is not possible to create a drawing that can be printed at any scale without making any modifications to dimensions and text labels. Not only the text label size of dimensions but also the di...

QCad looks up /etc/printcap for printer settings.

1. Please check carefully if you have no such file, or that file is empty.
2. If this is the case, look for the file printcap in /var/run/cups/printcap.
3. Run this command as root: ln -sf /var/run/cups/printcap /etc/printcap
4. Start QCad

Re: Laser cut out shapes

I need a program to submit to my laser cutter. They are drawings of animals. I would need to somehow scan my artwork, and make dxf files from them. Does the $35 program do this. How much of a learning curve is there to get up and running? Thanks QCad can import scanned images and display them in th...

Re: copy 1 spline and get exact amount between them

QCad cannot produce equidistant splines. You might want to try this instead: - explode your spline - this leaves you with a bunch of lines - combine those lines into a polyline using the "polyline from segments" function - create an equidistant to that polyline using the "equidistant polyline" funct...

Most likely you're simply in draft mode. See also FAQ 11:

Another workaround: Explode the ellipse, this leaves you with a polyline that consists of arcs. You can now fill this polyline.

Note that a single hotkey like 's' would disable all two letter key codes starting with 's'. Only two letter key codes make it possible to have a key code for every command in QCad.

Re: ... Edit more than one text element at a time

I can select multiple text elements, but how do I change the properties of all the text elements at once? This is only possible with the Property Editor that was introduced in QCad 2.1.2.8. This widget is proprietary (from Trolltech) and therefore cannot be used in the community edition. So far I'm...
