[Solved] Int between ellipse and circle

Postby Valdas » Tue Sep 08, 2009 10:20 pm


how to snap to intersection between ellipse and circle/arc? I tried "Snap -> Intersection" (QCad not want to place snap marker on intersection) and "Snap -> Intersection Manually" (when I select ellipse Qcad not shows snap marker on intersection when I place mouse near circle) but no success :(

This snap not work for me in QCad Demo and QCad Community Edition.

OS: KUbuntu 9.04 i386

P.S. sorry for bad English

This is currently not possible.

However, you can explode the ellipse which will turn it into an approximated polyline. After that, snap to intersection should work just fine:

- select ellipse
- modify - explode
