Re: grid spacing

Hi Caster,

The answer is in 'Edit->Drawing Preferences->Dimension Settings'. You will see that the 'Dimension Label Font' box is empty. Select a font and click 'Apply', and the labels will change to metric.

Hope this helps

Regards

Re: Centreline Cross

Hi Husky and J-J, After looking into this I think I have found a solution. I looked into the shop and saw a message saying that they are currently on holiday until the 16th of August, so I thought I would post this temporarily. This fix works with Husky's example of two circles and a rectangle, but ...

Re: Centreline Cross

Hi Husky, I started up QCAD Pro Trial Edition. The behaviour is exactly as you describe. I then started the community edition (by renaming the plugins) and the problem went away. Centreline Cross was working exactly as it should. Finally, I have the source code of the community edition, which I have...

Re: orthogonal mode

Hi All, I think what you need is the snap restriction - 'Restrict Angle or Length'. This is in the snap menu, or you can use the shortcut 'EL'. This displays in the options toolbar four input boxes and two check buttons. The first check button is labeled 'Angle', followed by an input box for angle, ...

Re: QCAD viewer

Hi Andreas, Who knows about a viewer app for macOS, Windows and Linux (or even iOS and Android) that could open and view QCAD produced files (.dwg or .dxf)? You want a viewer called 'Teigha' produced by the 'Open Drawing Alliance'. Google 'Teigha Fie Viewer'. The page only mentions DWG and DGN files...

Re: Hatch creation and calling it from block

Hi woddy There is an example script called 'Wallchart-en.js' which creates a block with a hatch colour of mid grey and inserts it multiple times into the drawing. You can find it here. ('-en' is the English version). https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=2910 Note: You need to first def...

Re: Simulate 'User Coordinate System' using 'rotate' and 'move'.

Hi Husky, Sorry about the confusion. I think my explanation was poor, so I will try again. Here goes... First 'Direction'. We normally give directions using points of the compass, such as EAST, WEST, NORTH, SOUTH, SOUTH-WEST, NORTH-EAST etc. However these are imprecise, so navigation systems, and su...

Re: Simulate 'User Coordinate System' using 'rotate' and 'move'.

Hi Husky, Thanks for your feedback. c.) If I launch this tool it looks like it reads the mouse pointer position. Unfortunately it start immediately even in "empty" areas of the drawing and reports Yes, you are right. This is clearly wrong, so I have attached the fixed file, 'ucs.js'. Replace the exi...

Simulate 'User Coordinate System' using 'rotate' and 'move'.

Hi, The 'User Coordinate System' (UCS) was developed in AutoCAD (and other CAD programs) to help draw 3D models. However, it can also be useful in 2D drawing. It works by specifying a direction for the X and Y axis, and selecting a point for the origin. In AutoCAD you can save multiple named UCS def...

Re: Hide-Show layers by name

Hi dfriasb, In this way only one command should be needed for the same task, and not so many like now (2 per letter). And also it could be used for any string length in layer names. You are correct. You have already put in some effort. With a little more I think you can do this. I would create a com...

Re: move a set of circles by one's center point reference

Hi Frank, There is a way to move all the selected circles at once, but not by using the centre point, so this may not be useful. Select the circles as usual. Position the mouse pointer on one of the circles. Don't select the centre point or quadrant points. Holding the left button down drag the circ...

Re: Arc Text

Hi TSG and Husky, I found a little problem. When I try to fit a text on an arc the text is written backwards. Actually this is a bug, which I missed. I have now, hopefully, fixed this. I have tested this with both types of arcs and it appears to be correct now. Perhaps you could test this for me. I ...

Re: Arc Text

Hi Husky, Thanks again for your efforts. It was very useful. It was obvious that the letter 'I' was in the wrong place, after any other character. After staring at it for a long time, the answer finally dawned on me. The spacing between successive letters was wrong. This was not obvious, looking at ...
