[solved] Dimensions off scale

Post by Jan-Ola » Thu Mar 08, 2018 9:27 pm

Hello,
I have just bought QCAD pro, so I am a bit new to this. Drawing the geometry works fine, but the dimensions have started to show a factor five too large numbers. It is like I am drawing at scale 1:5, but I cannot find that I have a setting like that. I get this even if I restart QCAD and make a new drawing from scratch.

In paper space there is a scale setting in the toolbar, but it is set to 1:1 and Edit -> Drawing Preferences -> Dimension settings -> size scale factor is set to 1. Is there another scale somewhere?

Regards,
Jan-Ola

Yes - there it was! I had missed that scale setting.

Thanks a lot!
