Re: Drawing Lines - - - Can I do it faster?

In Autocad/Draftsight you just select what you want to copy then initiate copy, specify the origin then you are off for however many you want to drop and wherever you want to drop them. With a selection. e_geek Edit...Cut (Ctrl+X) Edit...Cut with ref (RT) Edit...Copy (CP) Edit Copy with ref (RC) Wi...

Re: Drawing Lines - - - Can I do it faster?

I cant use the grid because lots of the blocks I use are downloaded templates and they aren't scaled to a grid and changing all of them negates the purpose of saving time and downloading them in the first place. But you are going to controle Qcad with a 3d mouse linked with AutoHotKey? I can not se...

"Copy to Current Layer"
Ergo:
Copy and Paste.
While pasting you get these options.

But that is duplicating...your question was 'moving'.

There is also Duplicate what cast excact clones and set the selection to it.
Alter the Layer entry and your clones are moved.

Re: Moving selections inbetween layers.

Moving: With a selection look at the Property Editor. Altering the 'Layer' entry will move the selection to the chosen Layer ( ! if possible ! ) For Merging: Deselect All (TN) In the Layer List R-click on the needed Layer and choose Select Layers Entities (Y+) (adding to selection) R-click on any ex...

Re: Drawing Lines - - - Can I do it faster?

See attached example None provided OK, It must be the preferences. I'll have a hunt around because it's just resetting itself. It doesn't seem to latch on. e.g. LI > set orthogonal in the menu on left or menu-snap > draw line length > drop orthogonal line >> repeat process so, LI (in AutoCAD you ju...

Re: addSpline does not draw the line but create the controlPoints

Not with fitpoint splines. I read you go back and forth between CE and PRO The workaround would be: Generate it under pro with one extra reference EDIT: ( really doesn't care a lot where, but fairly inline is best ). Set a crosser line in that last node. Trim the fitpoint spline to the crosser. Your...

Re: Automatically add dimension labels to drawing with a script

Glad we are getting somewhere... I have been creating RLines, RLineData and RLineEntitys That is the essence of my reply. The approach as with interfacing with a user that points in a drawing: a.firstEntity = firstEntity; a.secondEntity = secondEntity; a.dimArcPosition = dimArcPosition; Requires tha...

Re: Automatically add dimension labels to drawing with a script

BTW, I would be very interested in your scripts. In a way you are making a simple API for dimensions. I have a crude script in the pipeline that reproducible documents entities to csv. I am doing a lot of math on entities props so it is handy to have the numbers in full. My goal is to code the round...

Re: Automatically add dimension labels to drawing with a script

You will have to dig somewhat further: And finally, my angular dim function At first glance, way too little parsed. Where are those 1ste and 2nd entity defined? In the switch from DimAngular.prototype.pickEntity one can see that Qcad looks for the ClosestSimpleShape near the position. So Qcad is sti...

Re: Administratorrechte

Windows issue.
Occurs when data sections of applications are also installed in the OS protected section.

The only way is to free access to that folder tree as Admin or System.
Should be feasible in the Win UAC.
Would not be advisable for the complete Qcad tree.

Re: Automatically add dimension labels to drawing with a script

One method is to duplicate the functionality of the dim scripts. Analog to this story: https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?&t=6801 The major part of the dim scripts is data collection. That data you have at hand. The last value might be an issue, the side is relative to the actual pointer positio...
