Adding new hatch patterns

Postby andrew » Sat Nov 30, 2013 11:59 am

From a QCAD user:

I have downloaded new patterns .Pat to patterns Imperial of QCad
When I draw and insert (Hachures....Patterns) the new parttens don’t appair
I have only the list when I bought QCad

What is the problem it is impossible insert new patterns
Is it needed to change the patterns program and extensive the list?

Pattern files that are added to the folder patterns/imperial are available for drawings made in imperial drawing units (inch, foot, mile).

To add patterns for use in metric drawings (Millimeter, Centimeter, Meter, etc.), please add your pattern files to the folder patterns/metric instead.

If you are not sure what drawing unit you are working with, you can check the drawing unit in the drawing preferences dialog:
Edit > Drawing Preferences > General > Drawing Unit
