Crop Marks In Wrong Place on Page

Post by Kencl » Sat Sep 12, 2015 1:13 am

Hi. I have been using Qcad for a month or so with great success. I have windows 7 was using the previous version of Qcad. I just downloaded the latest version of Qcad (3.10) and the cropmarks are in the middle of drawing instead of the corners as they were previously. When I put the drawing in print preview, the crop marks are all in the proper place but something happens when exporting and there is just one crop mark per page somewhere in the middle. I Use Adobe Acrobat for the pdf. It's probably something dumb I'm forgetting to do but I can't think what. I've checked the page size to see if that had been changed but that doesn't seem to be the problem. If anyone has any idea I would be grateful! Thanks

Please understand that quick fixes are intended for advanced, computer savvy users who are comfortable downloading and copying files and who understand file path notations.

To apply a quick fix, download the referenced file (in this case https://raw.githubusercontent.com/qcad/ ... t/Print.js) and replace the appropriate file in your QCAD directory with the downloaded file (in this case scripts/File/Print/Print.js).
