How to access parts library

Postby uki114 » Tue May 26, 2009 5:36 pm

I am using UBUNTU 8.04, and QCAD 2.0.5.0. I am hoping to use some DXF parts from a plumbing supply company. I can open the DXF images as their own drawings, but have not found a way to "Import" them into my existing drawings. After research, I think I should use the "Library" directory for these parts, but I have yet to figure out how to insert even the stock QCAD parts into my drawings. Am I being limited by using the "Community Edition"?

After reading the online manual- I found what I was looking for-

The library access is under View/Views/Library Browser. I was incorrectly looking under Block or Edit or File....

Hope this post helps some other lazy person.
