Placing points relative to others
Posted: Mon Oct 15, 2012 12:37 am
This may be a difficult question to get across, but I'm going to try just the same. Understand that I come from the background of Bentley Microstation, so it colors the capabilities that I'm looking for in QCad. What I'm looking to be able to do is snap to a point, say an intersection of two lines, and then specify a relative distance from that point to place the first point of a new entity. Is this possible in QCad? I understand that I could create a temporary entity, like a line, to work from, but I've found that sometimes that can get a little messy if the construction lines get away from you.
