FS#37 - Generate Example Drawings

  • a script would be great actually. then we can generate different drawings with different units / scales / paper settings
  • OdWriteEx from OpenDesign creates something similar: a bunch of rectangles, each with a text label and an entity inside, e.g. “Aligned Dimension” and below a rectangle with an aligned dimension inside
  • the example drawings should contain:
    • an instance of every supported entity type (line, arc, circle, all dimensions, block insert, text, hatch, solid fill, ...)
    • lines in all available widths
    • lines in all available types
    • lines in all available (fixed) colors and some custom colors
  • script should be able to generate example drawings for different:
    • units
    • drawing scales
    • paper sizes
    • paper settings (background color, multi page settings, etc.)

what does "drawing scales" means? "Viewport scale" as used in settings for printing → page?

Yes, so we can generate drawings that print / convert to PDF 1:1, 1:2, 2:1, etc.
It's the document variable "PageSettings/Scale", stored as string "1:1".
