Print to file and Export PNG render problems.

I've been trying to get what I drew printed out but I'm having a lot of trouble still. The PNG render won't output what is shown on the page preview. It outputs the same drawing but placed off center and not the correct size in the PNG image. Then I tried outputing using the "Print to PS file" optio...

Re: Always have to login every visit here...!

Thank You.

Just tested that here and it seems to be correct. Using the ribbonsoft domain I am able to leave and come back and have it keep my login status.

Always have to login every visit here...!

What's wrong with the forum software that forces me to login every time I come here? Even if only 2 minutes after my last visit. I'm using Firefox and phpBB seems to work for other forums but this one is annoying as heck as every visit I have to re-login before doing anything.

How to Control Layer Order / Visibility?

There doesn't appear to be a way to assign what order layers render in. It seems whatever object was edited last comes to the top and is most visible. Is this right or am I missing something? It doesn't seem very functional to have to edit objects to bring them to the top and as far as I've seen I c...

Re: How Can I Print A Drawing???

Actually, QCad has worked quite well for me in actually editing the drawing. So it's only this weird printing behaviour that has me miffed so far. I downloaded Version 2.2.2 for Ubuntu and thought to try it out. But at this time I'd rather not get hooked into paying for a commercial version. I just ...

Re: How Can I Print A Drawing???

Answering my own question: I found I can export as a PNG bitmap and then open it in Gimp and convert to grayscale and threshold it with value 255 to make light traces reduce to black (if desired). I chose a bitmap size like 600x900 pixels to make the lines have a equivalent 150 dpi thickness. Higher...

How Can I Print A Drawing???

I have done a home plan using Qcad on Ubuntu 11.4. When I try to print I get a blank page. Actually, I think there is a very faint line drawing on there but it's close to blank. I tested my printer with other material and it works fine with normal toner density. This seem like maybe when the drawing...
