Re: Angular dimension overshoots

Ok, that works.

Out of curiosity:
What is the reason for the overhang or the gap?

Chaining narrow dimension

I hope that chain dimensioning is coming soon.

For narrow dimensions it currently looks like this:

Angular dimension overshoots

I noticed that the line for angular dimensions is too long when placing the dimension inside.
When placing it outside there is a gap.

Can this be changed in the preferences?

Diametric dimension outside the circle

As you can see in the image below, sometimes there is no space inside a circle for the dimension. So let's move it outside. That can be done by exploding the dimension. That works fine. BUT: Later, when you change the dimension settings in your drawing preferences, this exploded dimension will not b...

Re: How do I set different linetype scales for the same layer in different viewports?

No, this is not currently possible. However, this seems to be useful and supported by the DXF/DWG format, so there's a good chance this will be implemented in one the next releases. Presumably, this is what you had in mind: Yes, exactly. Big thank you in advance! But make it optional, so the curren...

How do I set different linetype scales for the same layer in different viewports?

On the paper space I have created three viewports with different scales.
Is it possible to bind the linetype scale to the viewport scale?

Re: Feature Request: Textbox inside padding

Husky wrote:May I ask you how many times you would use this "padding" on average in a drawing? 5 times? 500 times?

It depends. Last time I did it I had to place 24 texts. Some of them had padding left and on top, some were centered text with padding on the bottom.

Re: Feature Request: Textbox inside padding

Husky, thanks for the video. Your approach works fine, but so does adding parallel construction lines and placing the text there. But I still think, from a usability standpoint, a small addition to the text dialog (under the Text Geometry section) would be the right way to go. It would save the user...

Re: Feature Request: Textbox inside padding

It would be nice to have some padding options when adding/editing text. Unfortunately, I don't think padding exists in DXF/DWG which means if QCAD implements this, drawings would look different when opened in any other DXF/DWG application. It doesn't have to be "real" padding. It only has...

Re: Feature Request: Textbox inside padding

It seems there is some top padding above the text. How you did that? I can't reproduce this padding effect. Which font was used? Husky-2018.01.20-01.png I used the font ISOPCEUR with size 2 and height 3. That shifts the font a little bit downwards. Actually that happened by accident. I didn't know ...

Feature Request: Textbox inside padding

When placing text on a drawing you are offered with the choice of where you want the origin of the textbox to be. That's very nice. Here is an example of top left origin. It seems there is some top padding above the text. QCAD_textbox_no_padding.png Unfortunately there is no option to add extra padd...

Suggestion: binding actions and layers together

When dimensioning my drawings I always want the dimensions to be on the dimensions layer. When adding text I want the text to be on the text layer. When drawing an infinite line it is always a construction line, therefore I want it to be on the construction line layer. When drawing a line segment it...

Re: Dimensioning: Changing lineweight and text independently from each other

It probably depends what "Standard" means on a given OS.

Thank you, Husky. You pointed me in the right direction and now, after changing the font to a TTF-font, everything is as I wanted it to be. :-)

Re: Dimensioning: Changing lineweight and text independently from each other

Husky, you were right regarding the font choice. I changed the dimension label font to Arial, and now the text thickness doesn't change with the lineweight of the layer.

Problem solved, although I'd love to hear from Andrew, how the font choice influences the appearance of the dimension label.
