qcad not hatching

Postby edgewing » Mon Jun 18, 2007 12:10 pm

Hi All,

I have installed qcad on SUSE 10.0 and seem to be having some sort of issue in letting it know where the patterns are for the hatches.

I have set the correct path /usr/share/qcad/patterns in the settings but after I draw a rectangle and try to fill/hatch it, nothing appears to happen. I use the sequence exactly as in the manual. First, draw the rectangle, then hatch, select window, draw selection window so rectangle is selected, proceed to next menu using -> and then try to either solid fill or hatch. Neither of which work.

Also, the hatch patterns are displayed but I cannot get a preview of them.

What have I done wrong? :oops: :oops: Is there somewhere I've forgotten to set the correct path? apart from the application preference screen?

Thanks

Please excuse the blathering idiot :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

I finally read the bit in the manual that said draft mode does not show hatches.

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa
