FS#999 - Linear Factor doesn't get saved when drawing is closed.

I have a dimension layer on a drawing. I make only that layer visible and select all dimensions. Then from the property editor I set the Linear Factor. The dimension values change as expected, and I can print the drawing and have the new dimension values show up as expected. When I save and close the drawing, then re-open it, the dimension Linear Factor does not retain the value I gave it. I saved my drawing in the current R27 DXF format.

Thanks for your report.

I cannot reproduce this problem here with QCAD 3.4.5 on Ubuntu Linux (or any other platform).
Could you attach your drawing and indicate what factor you enter as linear factor? Thanks.

I enter 1 (one) as the liner factor.

I can reproduce this problem only with the attached drawing. In other respects I have no problems with my own drawings in 3.4.5 (XP/32).

I'm sure Andrew will have an explanation - I have only a quick workaround:
- New drawing - same drawing preferences like the 600W_box2_top.dxf.
- open Drawing 600W_box2_top.dxf - all Layer visible - select all - copy to clipboard.
- switch to the new drawing - paste with overwriting blocks and layers.

The new drawing should now be able to save the Linear Factor - at least it was working in my test ....
Good luck ;-)

Thanks for the file. The file uses a global linear factor (0.0393701) - a feature that is not fully supported by QCAD at this point.
I will look into that.

Thanks for your help and the workaround idea. I'm good to go with that.
