Re: Copying layers - is this normal?

Not sure I follow, but I suspect this might be the misunderstanding: - You draw a rectangle on layer "0" and a diagonal on layer "magenta". - You then duplicate layer "magenta" and call the new duplicated layer "cyan". - There are now two diagonals: one on layer "magenta", one on layer "cyan". This ...

Re: Disable addon script

I suppose the TRIAL version loads the PROTOOLS too and disengage them at a certain point. The trial shuts down when expired. The only way to turn a trial package into CE is by removing the QCAD Professional plugins (i.e. removing plugin "PROTOOLS", "DWG", etc.). I am not pleased with the idea that ...

Re: Disable addon script

Easiest is probably to preventing the GUI action from being created or showing up anywhere:

MyActionInit.js

Code: Select all

function init(basePath) {
    if (!hasPlugin("PROTOOLS")) {
        return;
    }
    
    var action = new ...
    ...
}

Re: Transaction failed. Please check for block recursions...

An entity "lives" in a document and references a layer, a linetype, etc. in that document. If you query an entity in one document and then store it in another, you would have to adjust (at least) the layer ID, line type ID, the document pointer (setDocument).

Re: Darstellungsproblem: Schrift editieren

Hier geht wahrscheinlich etwas mit dem Schriftarten-Mapping des Systems verkehrt. Ich vermute, dass diese Schrift auf eine nicht-skalierbare Bitmap-Schriftart gemappt wird. Unter Windows funktioniert die Schrift ohne Probleme und wird in der Regel auf Tahoma gemappt. Am besten eine andere Schrift ve...

Re: separate Move/Copy commands

PS: Why is C + P for copy or R +C for copy with reference slower than C + Enter in Autocad?

Re: separate Move/Copy commands

I'd strongly advice against using single letter keycodes. This will disable all two-letter keycodes starting with the same letter. Adding the shortcut "C" will disable all shortcuts for circles (CI, CR, ...).

Re: Menus not working in fullscreen mode ?

Sounds like a Qt issue, possibly related to OpenGL / Windows Drivers, etc.

One possible solution might be to remove the OpenGL plugin:
plugins/qcadgles3d.dll

This will also remove the 3D simulation widget but otherwise does not affect QCAD/CAM.

Re: create a new toolbar

It's certainly possible through the script interface.
There's no GUI to somehow click together your own toolbar.

Re: Suggestion to add a dimension label colour attribute

This has been implemented and will be included in the next snapshot release and possibly in the next stable release of QCAD Professional.
