To check compatibility for the same .dxf drawing prepared with Q2, I prepared 2 copies, one with a “_Q2” suffix and the other with “_Q3”. I managed to keep an operational Q2 system on the same Win7-HomeEditionPremium-64bits PC. As you can guess, I opened each copy with the relevant QCAD version.
In each version, I selected the same hatch layer and list here their properties along with a hardcopy of a display of a similar part of the hatched area, with blue lines showing the differences in hatching, apparently the density.
Another comparison with a global view of the same drawing. Just notice how the hatching in the areas at the bottom are different (red lines). Also, I noticed that increasing the zoom let the hatching appear in the Q3 version instaed of the grey homogenous color, but the hatching in Q3 remains more dense than in the Q2 version.
Then I opened another Q2 drawing with Q3. I elected to hide all layers then to show all of them. And the color hatching of some aras were then modified. See 3rd picture with all black areas. (Just changing the layers shown or hidden was enough to not allow to close the drawing without a save...).
Than you for your attention or letting me know which setting can correct the differences.
