### Re: Contour a hatch

Create a duplicate, set solid filled, Explode.
That would give you only the boundary of a hatch.

### Re: How do I split/break/trim a spline?

It uses different basic geometric shapes and also splines. I know how to split/break/trim a line that intersects with other line by going to Modify > Break out Segment and clicking on the segment that I want to remove: You should use trim there. Or test your drawings on zero-length entities what ca...

### Re: How do I split/break/trim a spline?

See Attached drawing. Depending the visibility of the layers. One can cut/break out (D2) a segment from shape1 or shape2 independently between the 'cutter' lines. Fast = V type => If exact doesn't matter. Neat = squared => 2 Proper spaced orthogonal parallel lines. (to add roundings or so) A tempora...

### Re: How do I split/break/trim a spline?

hi,
Break out Segment (D2) works with splines (... in PRO)

If Qcad fails to find the segment or so ...
I have the habit of drawing fast two lines ...
From here ... to there.

If its handier to modify them seperate than I'll do so.

Regards.

other drawings that reference that part Again, there is NO reference to the library parts ... Think of them as wizards, stencils, stamps, predrawn artifacts, ... of what you place a plain copy in the drawing. Mostly as a one reusable block, a few generate basic entities.

### Re: Draft appearance

The focal point of an objective, or better, a lens. Doesn't that hint you? Qcad scales in relation to a focal point. Eg. Scaling a circle in relation to its center. > The center stays where it is. Eg. scaling an squared object in relation to one of its corners. > That corner stays where it is, not t...

### Re: Pdf rendering not working properly

Hi,
There is something with the size of block 'TR'
Hiding this block in the Block List won't fool autozoom anymore.

Hi, So you edited a library item as a seperate dxf file. You then saved that dxf file back in the folder it came from... A: On a win system Qcad can't addres the OS protected program folder.

Hi, I think you are wrong. Referring to: https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=7422 A library item is inserted as a block definition and a block reference. And left there as it was. You can edit that block the same as any other block and it is no longer related to the library items. So, ...
