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.

Re: How to change the grab point of a Block

The "grab point" of a block it its reference point. That's 0,0 of the block. You'd have to edit the block and move its contents.

Do you use a drawing as default template when starting a new drawing?

Re: Schrift mit Kreisen überlagert 3.19.1 CAM OSX 10.12.6

Ich kann bestätigen, dass Texte, mit einer X Skalierung ungleich 1 falsche Resultate liefern. Bitte beachten Sie, dass solche Texte mit kleinen Liniensegmenten interpoliert werden müssten, da die Kreisbögen dann ja zu Ellipsenbögen werden. Die X Skalierung kann mit dem Eigenschafteneditor angepasst ...

Re: Can QCAD/CAM control my machine?

QCAD/CAM produces a G-Code file (or similar) from a CAD drawing. This G-Code is a text file containing commands for the machine (movements along the X, Y or Z axis, switching tools, setting the spindle speed, setting the feedrate, etc.). QCAD/CAM does NOT directly interact with a machine. It cannot ...
