Hi Andrew

I have attached a file which was drawn in QCAD, but for some reason when exported to PDF from QCAD it doesn’t print out properly,all I get is the dimensions only.

When printed direct from QCAD all is fine?

Just sent opened this file with AutoCAD and exported to PDF from there and the resulting PDF prints out just fine, so at this stage I would say the problem is with QCAD.

The error report from the printer says -

ERROR: undefinedresult

Offending command: itransform



I have tried to print this to more than one computer and I get the same result.

I cannot reproduce this problem here.
Could you attach your PDF file as well?

Although, I don't think this is something that could be fixed on our end. PDF export is handled by Qt (File > PDF Export) or the installed printer driver (File > Print > Save as PDF or similar).
