Re: Layer issue - Paste Along Entity

Yeah, now the bulb filament is glowing. I was "assuming" that the pasted entity was going to take the layer property of the path. It makes sense to me now. I do appreciate your patience. Regarding Hatches. Perhaps a suggestion to have option of an "ungrouped" hatch or a "block" hatch? Also, I'd like...

Layer issue - Paste Along Entity

I have Layer1 and Layer2 Draw a path on layer1. Draw a small circle on Layer1. Copy small circle (that's on Layer1). Select Layer2. Edit/Paste Along Entity. (Select however many you wish, say 10). I used Include end points. The circles are drawn. HOWEVER, they are on Layer1, not Layer2... Makes sens...

Hi,
try the QCAD tool "Paste along Entity" ... :wink:


Husky-2020.10.25-01.png
I like that! Excellent. I'm using 3.25.2.1 (Win 10) and when I hover over the entity it'll only preview a few of the clipboard items, but when I accept position it then fills in all the remainder.

Thanks again. Best

Re: Points on a line (curve and/or angle, etc...)

Hello, I found this post and wondering if there are any updates on this feature? I'm using Professional version: 3.25.2.0 (3.25.2) and at the moment struggle to find functionality that is capable of placing objects(circle in my case) on the curved line with a specified distance between each element...

Re: How do I extend line and keep the same angle?

Funny, I was looking at the neighbors cat as it was doing it's business on my property... wondering what I could use it's fur for.... so, so many things.

Re: How do I extend line and keep the same angle?

I just also found out, that the "Relative Angle" tool could also be used. Yes, but that will create another line rather than extending. I tried to move an endpoint. Left click the endpoint of line and drag somewhere. Unclick. Then spacebar to command line. Asks for Target point of reference point. ...

Re: begin line relative to point

Why not draw the new line beginning at initial reference point, then MV to a point that is relative to that point? (perhaps a little less cumbersome to moving relative zero)

Re: moving objects with keeping one coordinate as is

Panchdara, The command line is indeed the best practice with single inputs. :!: MV is great in moving items in a set. And I quote what I stated above: "Using MV I don't think you can explicitly "anchor" any particular point, but only move the entity(ies) either to absolute reference point or to a r...

Re: moving objects with keeping one coordinate as is

Hi Christoph, A couple ways I think. Using MV I don't think you can explicitly "anchor" any particular point, but only move the entity(ies) either to absolute reference point or to a relative reference point. Use @ in command line for a relative point, using 0 as X or Y to keep that axis same value....

Re: [Answered] Perimeter of an ellipse

Yes, thanks Andrew. Number of iterations? Or is that dependent on particular setup/specifics of the drawing (such as ellipse ratio)? (I think if I tried to read the code, it'd be like looking for a needle in a haystack :D ) I am just curious as I had just watched an entertaining video on the subject...

[Answered] Perimeter of an ellipse

Question: I just watched a neat video on the perimeter length of an ellipse. What formula/approximation does QCAD use?

Attached is one of the files I was working on. It is only 38 KB in size.
Was this file saved from ACad > 2016? Won't open in ACad 2016 but works fine in QCAD 3.24.3.10/Win 10

Edit: what application was this file saved from?

Re: Green Coordinate Text ?

Nice! However must move the pointer to see update as just pressing F8 will not change display until pointer moved. (A suggestion?)
