With the new block attribute feature available in QCAD 3.3, there’s little to be done in order to make QCAD a good environment for typesetting circuits and other diagrams. In particular, the only killer feature that lasts is support for connectors: orthogonal lines that connecting one endpoint to another creates a connection line; when the concerned entities are moved the connection line is re-arranged. I’d like to know whether commercial support for this feature is available.

This may actually be very useful. As of late I find myself using QCAD for things that traditionally should/would be done with more DTP-ish 'ware (creating labels for items of specific size, for example – I don't think it gets any simpler than using QCAD), I also have some projects on the back burner for the failure of finding a suitable (for me) application to draw diagrams and the like (like the re-imaging of Steve Ciarca's absolutely masterpiece Build Your Own Z80 Computer, where the only thing I lack now are the diagrams).

In any case, thanks for the idea, Leandro.
