Reflect use Matrix transformation

Post by duccoder » Mon Aug 03, 2015 5:00 am

Hi, I use QCAD Pro then I use Matrix Transformation tool.

I need use this to "reflect" entity. I use this matrix:


Code: Select all

[-1 0]
[0 -1]
But when I type "D" = "A" = -1, QCAD force close. And I type "D" <> "A", it work


- Please help me why and how to pass "D" = "A"?

- And I need use this on my ECMAScript, but I can't find doc, it's script on `Pro` scripts folder

Thanks for your report. I've created a bug report at: ... sk_id=1252

If you wish to rotate entities in your script, you can use the rotate functions of entities or vectors or flipHorizontal / flipVertical for [[-1,0][0,-1]].

Generic matrix transformations are significantly more complex since an entity might change its type (an arc might become an ellipse arc, etc.).
