Hi Brent, To be honest, you'd be better off asking this question on an ACAD forum. There sounds like some sort of 'explode entities' thing going on, but it's hard to tell without knowing your exact set up, and not knowing or having experience with the plasma computer software/ hardware, there is lit...

Backspace delete not working on Mac OS X 2.1.6.4

Michael, Andrew, Backspace-delete of selected entities is not working in version 2.1.6.4. in Mac OS X 10.5.2 Leopard. It seems to work fine in Windows XP though. I don't have a 'full keyboard' as i just have the MBP's keyboard. Can you do a fix, because the having to press apple-x all the time is re...

I think you'll find that your graphic card for QCad is quite adequate enough. You only really need fancy cards if you are doing 3D and/ or need high speed screen refresh times etc. AutoCAD has 3D capabilities (although they aren't very good!). If you still want to upgrade your card, I can highly rec...

We might add transparency as an attribute (like color, layer, line width, ...) to all entities at one point. Ahh sweet music to my ears! :D How about putting the bitmap(s) in the background of your drawing for now? Please let me know if that does not solve the problem and why exactly. Yes, I'll let...

Areas that are transparent? By setting a layer specifically for an imported image? One thing I know is very much on the increase right now, and you guys should look into it IMVHO, is GIS (or Geographic Information Systems); http://www.gis.com/whatisgis/index.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geograp...

Yes, I suppose that's one of the wonders of an application written in Cocoa rather than the Trolltech framework- ie you can apply transparency to a png via the Quartz graphics, like one can do in many cocoa native apps- but alas then not QCad? Shame. Would Trolltech add this if you asked them nicely...

Sorry Andrew, you're absolutely right! :lol:

Too much coffee and not enough breakfast! :D

Is it possible then to request a png transparency 'slider' at some point in the not too distant future?

Please note that the JPEG format does not support transparency. Maybe not with Windows (?), but jpeg's most certainly do support transparency in Mac OS X! Anyway, thanks for the advice. I'll try a PNG- FWIW I'm using PNG files more and more these days- as opposed to jpegs- maybe that is another 'wi...

Can you add the ability to create an 180 degree arc using two points on its diameter. This would work similar to creating a circle using 2 points. I thought that you could already do this, using the "2 Point Circle" command or with the "Ellipse Arc" command? If you create a circ...

transparency on jpegs

When importing a jpeg to draw around, or place in the background, it would be really useful if QCad could do this!! Guys?

Hmm- all a big false alarm. What baffles me is that it was SW's who gave me this news, now they emphatically deny it. (I thought it sounded too good to be true).

QCad and Google SketchUp

It seems that SketchUp and QCad were made for one another (thanks to the dxf format). Anyone using Windows or Mac OS X, who is wanting to make '3D' visualisations of drawings made in QCad, should look no further than the freeware version of SketchUp, which is still capable of importing DWG/DXF files...

Hi.

Not too sure what you mean. Can you be a little more specific? For eg, send in a screenshot?

I for one, don't get this problem you describe. You may be doing something wrong.

Dirk, it is also possible to move it by just clicking, then dragging on the text, where it highlights with a blue square. This way, there is no need to explode the text.
