Re: Align not working for me!

Hi @Husky

Gotcha! The extra step was throwing me -- most graphics packages I use don't have that step in the align functionality.

I've made a screengrab to clarify it for anyone else who's looking.

thank you :)

Align not working for me!

I managed to find the Align tool (Modify > Align) but I can't figure out how to use it. I select 3 rectangles to be aligned (Align to: Picked Entity, no other option other than Drawing available) and when I click the Tick button, they all shift down a bit. I can't see any "align to biggest or smalle...

Brilliant, thank you for this, will have play with it.

On a related note, is it easy to /export/ the data from Custom Properties?

Re: Easiest way to link data to an object?

Thank you for swift reply (I didn't get notification so only just noticed). The custom properties would be good for one or two pairs but I have about 11. Was thinking of creating simple database/JSON file to keep track, and hoping that this data could be linked easily. If not, I'll fallback to using...

Easiest way to link data to an object?

I'm using QCAD to create simple garden plans, and I'm curious about the easiest way to link data about a plant to that object.

I've used JSON a bit in designing websites, and it seems an ideal way to store the information.

Any tips gratefully received before I bolt down the rabbit hole!

Re: Group Tool

It would be nice to have the ability to group different elements though -- you don't always want to create a re-usable block. For example, I have different sized trees on a garden plan, which all have text, a circle for the edge of the tree and a trunk at the centre. I don't want to create 40+ diffe...

Create keyboard shortcut for Pan Zoom for laptop trackpad

It would be nice to have a keyboard shortcut (eg ctrl+option+trackpad-click&hold) to toggle the Pan Zoom tool. QCAD is great with a mouse and wheel but a bit painful on a laptop with just a trackpad. Thanks :)
