Copy / Paste: Scale

Postby andrew » Thu Dec 29, 2011 9:21 pm

Question from a QCAD user:

I need some technical help with copy and paste functions on QCAD Professional. When I try to copy a drawing from one to another it pastes to the drawing in a miniature scale and I don't know how to blow it back up.

You can enter the scale of the pasted entities in the options tool bar at the top. If the options tool bar is not visible, please enable it through menu:

View -> Toolbars -> Tool Options

Please note also that QCAD converts units when using copy / paste. If your source drawing is in Millimeters and the target drawing in Meters, the pasted entities are automatically scaled to maintain their real size.
