Re: Prints Too Many Copies

You should be able to set the number of copies in the QCAD print dialog: Screen Shot 2017-12-15 at 09.19.14.png If this is not the cause, there might be another printer configuration (possibly under advanced printer settings) that forces the 10 copies. We haven't had any similar reports so far and c...

Re: Linienstärken im PDF

Grundsätzlich würde ich entweder mit der globalen Skalierung (Werkzeugleiste oben) oder mit Viewports arbeiten. Beides kombiniert macht eigentlich wenig Sinn.

Re: Linienstärken im PDF

Ich kann das Problem mit den Linienstärken bestätigen. Als Umgehung würde ich vorschlagen: - Globale Skalierung (Werkzeugleiste oben) im "Layout1" ändern in 1:1 - Skalierung des Rahmens (block 3) ändern in 1 - Viewports skalieren mit Faktor 1/20 (resultiert in Viewports mit Skalierung 1) -...

Re: auto paste in draw

The shapes are (likely identical) splines. Usually a block would be created for such a repeating figure. The block would then be inserted as a block reference at all desired positions. If the shape needs to be updated or something additional is added (e.g. the arrow), the block is simply edited acco...

Re: Qcad: slow on iMac.Help ,please?

Please try to be more specific. Which aspects do you experience as slow? Start up? Loading / saving? Display? Selection? Modification? Working with a particular drawing file?

Re: Qcad GUI fonts

You might also want to experiment with some Qt environment variables as specified at:
http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/highdpi.html#high ... port-in-qt

QT_SCALE_FACTOR=1.2

or even

QT_DEVICE_PIXEL_RATIO=2

The key bit is that you'd have to choose the exact format as indicated above. That uses a different library to write the DXF.

Re: auto paste in draw

Can you attach your drawing file or parts of it?
A potential solution depends a lot on the nature of those shapes (are they all the same? are these ellipses? multiple loose entities? block references? ...?)

Re: Why am I getting this error?

Duplicate record would indicate that two objects have the same handle in the same file. Can you save the file with the problem using dxflib:

- File > Save as...
- Format: R15 [2000/LT2000] DXF Drawing [dxflib] (*.dxf)

And attach the file? Thanks.

Re: Join rectangles and dimensioning

You might want to use the tool Modify > Align Reference Points instead.

Re: Exception occurred. Entity NOT saved:

Thanks. I can reproduce the problem now. Please change the line spacing in the text dialog to a value of 4 or under. The DXF standard only allows values up to 4 and Teigha enforces this rule in the latest version which is unfortunate. I will look into ways to allow QCAD to work around that unnecessa...

Re: Exception occurred. Entity NOT saved:

Unfortunately, this is not reproducible here. Can you save your file as follows and attach it to your post:
- File > New
- Add text
- File > Save As...
- Change "Format" at the bottom to "R15 [2000/LT2000] DXF Drawing [dxflib] (*.dxf)"

Re: Auto-dimensioning

One dimensioning tool for aligned, vertical, horizontal, linear, and radius/diameter. Can you outline how this would work? Maybe best as a feature request at: http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/ And while I have the wish list open, maybe at some point we cld have the ability to set defaults for the dia...

Re: How to change the grab point of a Block

Hint: the only good reason to explode a block is if you don't want that part of the drawing to be structured as a block anymore. In all other cases double-click the block to edit its contents.
