Task Description

For all the Linux VI editor geeks, can you disable the <ESC> function in the text edit mode. <ESC> maps to <cancel>. If anything it should map to <ok>. Which creates no harm as it can be later undone. I have accidentally lost edits countless times due to an unbreakable habit.

Task Description

Line weight in exported pdf is sometions wrong. Example, create a polyline closed figure and hatch it with style GRAVEL, then export to PDF. The outline line width will vary depending on the actual zoom factor of the display. I believe this bug is causing points to be displayed at various sizes in the PDF.

1 Task Description

Incorrect rendered faltering types of lines with the dwg2pdf tool.
Some of them: “DOT”, “DOT2”, “CENTER2”, “BORDER2”, “DASHDOT2”, “DIVIDE2”, “DASHED2” and others.
Lines are drawn by the “compressed”.
But when exporting through the menu “File” → “PDF Export”, lines are drawn as expected!
I attach two files as an example.

Excuse me and “Google Translate” for my English :)

Task Description

data points display as either a dot (.) or a plus sign (+) on output to pdf or printer. There appears to be no constancy or control over the behaviour. Any way it could be forced to behave like Qcad-2 (i.e. line-weight controlled dot (.) ???
