Re: Leader arrow heads disappear

Leader arrows are removed if the arrow size is smaller than half the length of the first leader segment that is hosting the leader. This is a DXF/DWG format restriction. I'm not sure that I fully understand your reply about the arrow size Andrew but I attach a stripped down version of the drawing i...

Re: Bill of Materials from QCAD

Hello, right now there is no such a function in QCAD which will create a "Bill of Material" for you. Nevertheless - QCAD comes with a script called "Export Blocklist" which will produce a *.csv text file which could be used to create (with the help of MS-Excel or a similar program) a Bill of Materia...

Re: Centerline midpoint issue

In each case, the lines seem to maintain symmetry about its midpoint. Yes, that seems right. But I can't figure out what the rule is behind that. Is the center a fixed dot, dash or a gap? Or maybe the end of the line is a fixed dot, dash or gap. In this example - should not at least the center or t...

You can't convert a Trial into a Pro. Just de-install the trial and install instead the Pro.

Re: Centerline midpoint issue

After looking at it I realized that it appears the centerlines adjust themselves to maintain symmetry from end to end. I don't think so - but maybe I see it wrong ... :oops: My understanding is the line has a fixed definition. Something like this: *DASHDOTX2,Dash dot (2x) ____ . ____ . ____ . ___ A...

Hi Cliff - welcome to the QCAD forum, ... but when I print I am just getting a blank page. More importantly, when I export to PDF I also get a blank page, Sounds like you need to reposition the paper position.

Re: Learn What Causes Zero Length Objects

I think that chamfer set with a zero chamfer distance causes a zero length object. Does trimming lines cause zero length objects? Never noticed ... I myself have so few problems with zero entities that I couldn't even say what caused them. Most of the time I see them in drawings that have been impo...

Re: Restarting a reorder

So far I have had to work through the process of setting the order from start to finish, without making a mistake, and if I make a mistake I have to start from the beginning again; my question is, can I resume reordering from a mid point, or do I have to look for another solution? Ok, I tested it a...
