OK, there's another feature I'd like to see - ordinate dimensions. Just x- or y-distances from a single zero point. This saves cluttering up the drawing with linear dimensions - especially useful when you're giving it to an old-fasioned machine shop :¬)
Thanks for a great product. The latest update (126.96.36.199) seems to have fixed some fill problems which I had put down to 'finger trouble'.

I you love to see this feature too. Ordinate dimensions is very useful to have the (x,y) coordinates when you write a GCode program to generate paths.
In my company we use today a very old MSDos CAD program. It's very easy to use (as easy as QCAD). Here is a sample of what we make everyday with this program :
I'm searching for a long time to find a easy to use CAD software to replace the old one. Never found a simple
one that can be used by every people working in my company. Evaluating QCad for some days makes me feel that I have found the best one that fit my need.
I would love to replace this old cad software with QCad, but without the ordinate dimension feature, it's not possible (well not without cluterring as rlubikey
Thanks for you help.

I hate to dredge up an old post but I would like to know if this feature will be implemented in the upcoming release of Qcad. I own the current version of Qcad, and this works fine for some projects. However, I have to used other programs to complete any project that needs the ordinate dimensioning system and would like to keep any hobby projects completely inside a linux environment.
Could someone please inform me if this will be available for Qcad v3. If so, I will not hesitate to purchase the new version when available.

QCAD has ordinate dimensioning since version 188.8.131.52 (2008/01/25).
