scale chain lock (y-parameter) when placing a block

Post by webrider » Tue Mar 08, 2016 7:22 pm

Win7, Qcad Pro v3.12.8 Following example explains:
1. Select block to place into drawing
2. Change x-scale to 1/3, observe grayed out y-scale shows (.333)
3. Click chain to unlink x & y scales
4. Change y-scale to 1/2
4. Click chain again to relink x & y scales and y-scale box grays out but 1/2 remains
5. Block is placed using x = 1/3 and y = 1/2 even though the chain shows x & y linked and 1/2 grayed out

I went to your link for bugs, to report this problem there, but that site says I am not a registered user.
