in QCAD3 RC2 points were printed as crosses, in QCAD3 RC4 they are printed as (very little) points. I think this isn’t a bug but a feature. ;-)

It would be nice if one could change this behaviour / select the symbol of points.

This was actually a bug in QCAD 3 RC2.
The point size was depending on the current zoom level in the print preview and therefore uncontrollable.
There really should be a drawing preference for this setting.

Attached you find an example with comparison RC2/RC4. The output of RC2 was perfect IMHO... ;-) If you include a "drawing preference" option: would it be possible, to select both style (+ x o etc.) and size?
Thanks a lot!
