Re: QCAD freezing

Thanks Husky. It is still slow on my system. Next year I get a new laptop and hopefully large files will not anymore slow QCAD a lot down. Still a bit strange for me to understand as I cannot see a bottleneck in the taskmanager while QCAD is working on this file - there is still free RAM available, ...

QCAD freezing

Hi together, I have an old drawing from Autosketch which I would like to use in QCAD. So I have saved it in Autosketch as DWG an opened it in QCAD. As it is in many bits and pieces I tried to make a block from it, but if I do so QCAD freezes. DCC_10_ATM.DWG I have attached the file - any ideas why? ...

Re: Shortcut key to close print preview?

If I get you right you are searching for CTRL+Shift+P which takes you to print preview and back as well.

Additional informations in library items

Hi,

I assume there is no possibility to add some additional informations in a symbol which I don't want to get visible in the drawing?
I thought of something like "standard delivery with 1 x 150, 1 x 100, 1 x 60 cm safety fences" - a simple textblock which could be visible in the properties editor.

Small bug in the tool settings

Hi there, not something serious but a quite strange behaviour. If I untick in the general tool settings the delete function from the tool bar, than I can't delete somthing by pressing the delete button on the keyboard anymore, the ER shortcut still works. If I put a tick in the checkbox for the dele...

Old reference point

Hi Andrew, before you start to post more question and answers them yourself, I have a fresh one for you :mrgreen: When I draw something or take a library item and move it there is a red circle with a cross inside remaining on the old position. Is that just for some internal reasons or is there a ben...

Re: Tool Shortcuts Cannot be Stored - More Problems

Hi Barry,

but I assume you are aware of the adjustments for the auto snap in applicationm preferences? That helps a bit.
There is many bits and pieces different to Autosketch but after a couple of weeks intensive QCAD work I like it much more than Autosketch.

Re: Tool Shortcuts Cannot be Stored - More Problems

Yes, same behaviour on my installation. I have tried as well to change snap center and snap end to F2 and F3 and the first got lost after I made the second one. My next try was to add the two new shortcuts, I deleted them and added them again and after that both stayed, would be a workaround if that...

With this software you have done a really great job. I hope you are young enough to keep QCAD alive for many more years.

Re: Tool Matrix editable

Bloody hell, never spotted that. I have been several times in that setting but only for modifiying the shortcuts.
Works well thanks.
That shows as well how powerful QCAD is.

Re: Reference lines

Sorry, but I have seen that layer function and tried it. Still visible in print preview. At the moment I don't have a printer connected so I can't double check if it is still in the printout.
Hopefully I have not found a bug?

Tool Matrix editable

Hi, I really like the tool matrix and I use it in the icon view. Now there is many functions which I don't need and I would prefer to have it short enough that there is no scroll bar. Would be great if I could edit it to delete the functions I don't need and as well to sort them. The best would be t...

Reference lines

Hi everyone,

is there a special function for generating reference lines which will not be visible in a printout?
I would use constructions lines for that and would place them on a seperate layer which I would switch to invisible before I print it.

I assume that there is no quicker way?
