QCAD 2.2: default line width setting

Postby froebe » Mon Apr 14, 2008 9:02 am

I have a problem since QCAD 2.2: the default line width is != 0. When drawing and zooming, the line becomes bigger. This is new to V2.2 and V2164 (in V2132 this does not happen, the line width remains 0)

This is intended behavior. The default line width of layer '0' is now 0.25mm for new drawings. You can of course easily change that by editing the attributes for layer '0'.

The reason for this decision was that users tended to launch QCad for the first time, draw some lines and print them. Depending on the printer, this often resulted in an empty sheet of paper due to the line width of 0.00.

Same problem here, but worst.
I tested lines width from 0.13mm to 0.25mm and print it on paper.
The sheet present only 2 lines width, one more small <= 0.10mm; others with the same big width >=0.25mm.
Tested with a Samsung Laser and an HP Deskjet, same result.
V.2.1.6.4 and V2.1.3.2 are working fine on Kubuntu 8.04
May I send you a DXF with my test?

The Punisher: This is a separate problem. Thanks for your report. We've submitted a bug report to TrollTech since this problem seems to be with the Qt library.

The problem with line width differences in printed drawings and PDFs is fixed in QCad 2.2.1.0
