[solved] Circle resolution

Post by dfulper » Fri Aug 17, 2018 3:28 pm

I have been using QCAD for awhile. Today, when I draw a circle, the circle appears to be composed segments instead of a smooth arc when in draft mode. If i take it out of draft mode, then it looks normal (smooth arc). Previously, circles always appeared as smooth arcs regardless of draft mode setting. I must have accidentally changed a setting. Can you tell me what I need to do to revert?
QCAD 3.14.3 Windows 7

Edit > Application Preferences > Graphics View > Appearance > Minimum angle step for rendering arcs (degrees)

Default is 0.2.
