FS#1881: Layers issue resurfaces 2019-04-29T08:29:40Z 2019-04-29T06:06:24Z

Layers issue has returned. Add new layer and the new layer, even though active, is not highlighted although the pencil icon shows. And in some cases no layers are highlighted after the new layer is added or the wrong layer is highlighted after adding new layer. 3.22.09

FS#1880: Line only trims one end when trimmed to circle 2019-04-25T14:06:29Z 2019-04-25T14:03:47Z

using the trim (RM) command
the drawing has a circle with a line going through it. I want to trim the line ends to the circle with the remaining lines inside the circle.
select the circle as limiting entity.
command line says Choose entity to trim. click the line on the right side of center, the excess line on the right is properly trimmed.
command line says Choose entity to trim. Click the remaining line inside the circle on the left side of center. nothing happens.

if I exit the trim command and re-enter, now I can trim the left side of the line

FS#1877: Post Processor Tutorial 2019-04-15T14:14:12Z 2019-04-15T14:14:12Z

Hallo Andrew,

I am still busy on the never ending G-code story. Doing so I wrote a small Post Processor Tutorial for all those nerds who wants to write their own. If you like it you might add it to QCAD. However, since English is not my native tongue I suggest checking it would be wise.

Meanwhile I have downloaded the source code, and could not find the CAM’s Drill-path-script. I am now using a negative Drill Cut Depth to set a Laser Dwell time, were as a field “Dwell Time (in seconds)” in the Drill-path would be more appropiate. Is this script open source available or is it part of ‘closed part’ of QCAD?
