Change the appearance of lines

Post by Harperdave » Wed Oct 30, 2019 9:06 pm

I am a "light" user and limited in skills so far. (Using QCAD Pro.) Can anyone explain simply, a way to change the appearance of lines? "Layers" and some other things are still Greek to me. I am avoiding using colors, but I would like to be able to use dotted and dashed lines, as an example, to show the position of overhead objects. Thanks in advance for the help.

I would start here:

https://qcad.org/en/tutorial-layers-blo ... attributes.

Beside that you can set these individual for most kinds of objects.

THANKS! I get it now. As usual, it's easy when you see it. "Linetype Scale" was my issue. The scale was too small to see the changes. (DUH)

Appreciate the help!
