Dimension Importing issues

Post by vicme » Sat Jun 01, 2019 1:20 pm

Hi, I'm using Q-cad pro ver 3.22, window 7
when I import a .DWG file created in Autocad Light the Dimensions get manipulated.
so when I open the drawing in DraftSight all looks OK, see attachments for clarity.
I'm new to Qcad so maybe I'm doing something wrong.

I've also Noticed if I create a drawing in Q-cad and than open it in another cad software, the dimension txt is moved away from the dimension lines??
if any of you know how I can correct these things please let me know.

QCAD only supports one dimension style with the text above the dimension line and an uninterrupted dimension line.
You can reposition the dimension labels accordingly using Dimension > Reset Label Position.

Thank you Andrew,
I did what you said and it did help some.
It would be nice if we could be more compatible so that when drawings are shared
and being discussed both parties are looking at the same thing.
Like I said I'm new to Q-cad so far this is the only issue that I have seen with it.
so Hopefully, a fix is in the works :D
Thanks for the help.
