Re: Text color does not change

I do not see any difference between the 2 versions, Your file was in dxf format R15, nowadays Qcad saves in R32. Just to be sure you could open it. There should be no difference or it is the version limits itself. What I don't expect with this drawing. Some layers do not seem to have any purpose si...

Re: Text color does not change

The second file was worse. You scaled the paper somehow to 21mm width. Two revisions attached. One in R15 format. One in R32 format. Dot are gone, text is simple, line types and use are grouped. The paper Layout is scaled x5 because the drawing is only 2x2mm. Remind the view mode 'Screen Based' or n...

Re: Text color does not change

I scaled up to 1:1 as you said but to no avail. Everything is the same. If you used Select All (none locked) and Modify .. Scale times 5.63 for that and aplied a paper scale 1:1 the dots would not be that huge anymore. After that it is the matter to give your lines a proper size. - In group per lay...

Re: Text color does not change

Why is that that lines should not be smaller than 0.25 ? That is not the rule. :| It is common to define these per Layer. A Layer for continuous fine, another for dotted ... Exceptions still can have individual Props. You can choose any available. 8) Default is a global type set by the Application ...

Re: Odd dimensions

Select the Dimension and look up 'Specific Porperties' in the 'Property Editor'.

Application Preferences are default for all new drawing.
Drawing Preferences are default for that single drawing.
Specific Properties are individual.

Is this a CAM issue? I supose this a drafting issue.

and they are not red, why is that ? They should.
Because the entities of the block are set to 'ByLayer', the layer that they are defined on.
We could choose to define them as 'ByBlock' and then it will be the block reference color.

Like I said, a mindset.

Re: Text color does not change

however it's printing 2 large dots which should not be there and can't be deleted. As PRO user we would activate the Selection Filter and filter on type 'Points'. There are 2 double point entities. In your case point near the position/intersection and select keeping the Alt-key pressed. You should ...

Re: Text color does not change

Are there blocks in the picture? In the example file the block entities are defined on Layer 'zz_BlockDefs' And take the properties of the layer they are defined on. The block is put on 'Layer1'. 3 times a block reference. Changing the color of layer1 or that of the block references itself does not ...

Re: How to select a text box to move it

Humm.. so many bugs from day one already, I wonder.. Hi, the file itself is not the problem, So far it seems not to be a bad or crossed installation. It is a user that starts from scratch at the very bottom. No offense, we all were there at some point. Entities sit on a layer. Entities can be part ...

Re: How to select a text box to move it

Rather difficult to to provide a solution this way.

If all fails try to remove Qcad and its folders.
Never mix trial/CE/Pro.
Try a clean install.
Or try it again with resetting the configuration. (see forum)

If that would not kill the ghost I am out of propositions.
