Re: Get area of an entity in Script Shell

I've added getArea to the RPolylineEntity API for the next release. For now you can use getArea of the underlying RPoltyline shape instead:

Code: Select all

entity.castToShape().getArea();

Re: Script file for DXF creation with text

There seems to be a bug with the RS.VAlignCenter constant when used in addSimpleText. I used RS.HAlignCenter for both vertical and horizontal alignment and got the correct result (the 'x' is aligned on center V&H). Likely fixed in newer versions? For vertical alignment, use RS.VAlignMiddle: htt...

aber die Anzeige der Punkte, die nicht "geschlossen" sind, ist seltsam. Es werden, selbst wenn offenkundig nur an 2 Stellen eine Auswahl nicht geschlossen ist, x verschiedene Koordinaten nacheinander in separaten Fenstern angezeigtp Kannst du bitte die Zeichnung anhängen? Ich kann das hie...

Re: How do I copy blocks onto different layers

To which layer are you trying to copy?
I've noticed that layer 0 and many other layers are invisible.
Note that you cannot select entities on invisible layers or paste anything into an invisible layer.

No. Think of the layer as an attribute of each entity (like its color or lineweight). Each entity has a color and each entity is on a layer.

If you cannot solve the problem, please attach your drawing file.

Re: Layout (paper space) Questions / Suggestions

Note that this is not a trivial issue as far as user interface / usability is concerned given the fact that many users are struggling with the very simple, basic single block printing mechanism QCAD has at the moment.
