Re: Can't Edit Block (not visible)

This FAQ entry might answer your question: http://www.ribbonsoft.com/qcad_doc_faq.html#20 I have a drawing with several blocks, and it seems I can only see the block in the block edit window if ALL my layers are visible in the main drawing, even if I can see the blocks on the main drawing. I spent a...

Re: Editing Splines

Yes, you can select the spline and then drag and drop the small blue dots which are the nodes you clicked to create the spline first.

Re: How do I know the dimensions of a line, box circle as I

You might want to enable the preferences widget (QCad Professional) to get more information about one or more selected entities. While drawing, you can enter coordinates ("snap to coordinate" function in QCad Pro or enter coordinate "x,y" or "@x,y" (relative) in command line). Note that QCad is not ...

No, that is a misunderstanding. Professional releases and Community releases are not synchronized in any way. Note that the development of QCad depends entirely on Professional licenses being sold. Without the Professional version there would not be a community version either. Maybe I didn't ask my ...

Re: Can I run community edition in osx?

I'm afraid but compiling sources is usually not the best solution for new users. In a nutshell, you will have to install XCode, download / compile Qt 3.3.x, set up the QTDIR environment variable, download the QCad sources and run scripts/build_qcad.sh. Very, very new to mac. I like very much what I ...

Re: Dimensions and Measurements

Will any of the tools for drawing text or putting dimensions on drawings from the scripting language be available as standard any time soon? Probably not real soon. The scripting engine that QCad uses (QSA from TrollTech) has been dropped as a product. It will take some time to port the existing sc...

Sounds strange. How do you try to run QCad? If you are not trying from the command line, please try this: cd /directory/where/qcad/is ./qcad If it won't start, please run ldd to check if you have all required libraries: ldd qcad Thank you for your time. I downloaded and tried the new version and I h...

thank you for your answer the raster file is at 4209x3276px for only 962ko, my system can handle it (Autocad uses it without slowing down) so is there any way to prevent the default behavior ? Unfortunately not. Note that QCad is not as highly optimized as AutoCAD. The file size of the image is irr...

Re: Resize rectangle

What is the best/easiest way to resize a rectangle? Currently is use the stretch functionality I wonder if there is a way to select a side and have it repositioned and by doing so resize the rectangle. Marcel QCad does not know the concept of a rectangle. If you draw a rectangle in QCad, it simply ...

Re: infinite raster zoom

Hi, Once I reach a certain zoom level on a raster, if I go further then I only see the blackboard and the grid, forcing me to zoom out. How can I continue to zoom on the image while not passing trough it ? QCad hides the image if it becomes very large to prevent it from slowing down the graphics vi...
