If I draw a spline and then explode it, is there any way to offset that path?

I tried with parallel lines, but it is a very long task!

Not with the QCAD Community Edition.

With QCAD Professional, combine the segments to a polyline and use the polyline equidistant tool.

Hi Andrew,

i tried to follow your steps. I had a spline, exploded it ( had to do it twice actually) and tried to combine the segements. But i got an error saying:"Element is no line or arc".

What did i do wrong?

OK, found it out:
after the first "explode"-command the spline was already a polyline. It was then already possible to offset the line with the command equidistance.
