[solved]Dimension text garbled, and text can't edited

Post by t.ogawa » Thu May 09, 2019 8:59 am

Software:QCAD Pro 3.22.0.0
OS:Mac Mojave

Hello.
I have some questions about the dimension text.

1. 
When i open a dxf file in QCAD and select japanese fonts, only the dimension text remains garbled.
But the multitext part is not garbled.

And it is garbled even when I export PDF from QCAD screen.
However, there is no garbled character when exporting PDF from command line tool.

use command:

Code: Select all

dwg2pdf -l -a -k -fs standard Arial -paper=A3

2.
I can not edit the text by double-clicking this Dimension text.

3.
Dimension text has been rotated.
Is this a QCAD specification?
(Im expecting an "autocad_ss.png")


Thank you.

You can change the dimension font under:
Edit > Drawing Preferences > Dimension > Dimension Settings > Dimension Label Font

That's correct. You can edit dimension labels using the property editor.

QCAD does not support the dimension style used by Autocad.
