FS#890 - Relative zero point mark artifact on print preview

The relative zero point mark appears on the print preview screen. I don’t know, if it also gets printed (my printer setup appears to be broken at the moment), but it does not get exported to PDF, so I guess it is only on the print preview.

On a side note, I think that the reset command (qq) should also clear this. The manual states:

The Neutral State of QCAD
Menu:    Edit - Reset
Keycode: QQ

After the start, QCAD is in its neutral state. That means that no special tool is active and QCAD waits for you to click a menu or tool button to start a tool and start doing something.

As there is no relative zero point just after startup, I think it should also not persist a qq.

This is intended behavior.

The relative zero point indicates what coordinate is used as reference for relative coordinates as well as snap restrictions. Since it is perfectly possible to construct and modify a drawing in print preview mode, the relative zero point can be useful in print preview as well. It never gets printed or exported though.

Reset should not reset the position of the relative zero point. This too is intended behavior.

If you find the relative zero point gets in your way, you might want to adjust its color / transparency in the application preferences.
