Update: Imperial (US) drawing sheet templates, ANSI A-E

Post by Husky » Wed Sep 25, 2013 8:33 pm

Hey - how nice is that!
With the new QCAD 3.3.0 release we have more and nicer possibility's to handle i.e. the entries in a title blocks or a revision block.
It's called "Block attributes" and that was a reason for me to update the Drawing sheet templates with this new feature of QCAD.

Hi, these are great. I would like to amend these to metric and United Kingdom standard paper sizes but I'm struggling to amend the templates successfully.

I am unable to hear the tutorial. I have logged into YouTube and still can not get the audio to play. Is this located somewhere that I could download the file? :?:

Is it possible to enter a multi line title in the drawing title field?

Thanks.

So, then you're saying by inserting text manually in the block, not through use of the field, right? Also, I take it Standard if the font you've used for the rest of the text in the title block?

The reason I ask is that some applications have a special key sequence to insert a carriage return into a text string (spreadsheets for example) and I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something here.

Thanks for the response.
