I have not yet received your book (that I have ordered together with the QCAD-pro), but I will use this forum to "nit-pick" the manual.
The manual that is incorporated in the qcad-pro program, says that to view the Layer List one needs to enter:
View - Views - Layer List
This should read:
- Code: Select all
View - Toolbars - Layer List
I am waiting with bated breath for your book. Congratulations on a great program with great potential.
