Re: Text doesn't accept color from layer

Hi Krischu. I had a quick look at the properties of the various Text entities. The magenta colour entities (on layer "Text") have a "Text" property same as "Plain text" property - all look fine whereas those that are prefixed with "\C7;" have a black colour and not the layer colour (I use white back...

Re: Different Font Size Between AUTOCAD and QCAD

Thanks jssham. Makes a lot more sense. Can you save the original (Autocad version) in DXF format? Looks sorta like an import issue? I'm sure Andrew will figure out - I was just trying to see where the differences were. I guess ACad might save DWG files using their proprietary format(s) and even then...

Re: Different Font Size Between AUTOCAD and QCAD

jssham - question:

exactly what?? do you expect to see? Can you show what the "correct" text/font looks like and what the "incorrect" text/font looks like?

Cheers

Sublayer implicit visibility based on parent layer visibility (Solved)

Solved: [ Hi and seasons greetings. I might have lost the plot. so to speak, but I seem to remember that sublayer visibility was based on parent layer visibility. When the parent layer was hidden so were the child layers (implicitly). Am I remembering wrong? It would make sense that a child layer wo...

Block Hatch anomaly?

I can understand Andrews point in viewtopic.php?f=8&t=6831

Whilst making forward progress on a small drawing, I came across a scenario that is similar to that attached.

Same layer each entity
Create open block
close block with line
hatch
fail

Bug or by design?
Cheers

Re: Block creation problem/anomaly

Hi. Yes, absolutely a recursive block reference. (If you first explode block 1 then all works well). However, what I recorded just seems unusual (ie allowed the block 1 to be reused...?) The second issue is to see the multiple circles thrown across the screen. So, could possible be handled a little ...

Block creation problem/anomaly

Before I make a bug report, 1st) Thanks Andrew for 3.24. Always great to see QCAD being actively maintained. Thanks for addressing the block hatch issue. I am working with some blocks and I am probably doing it all wrong, but there seems to be yet another issue: please see attached. I highlight 2 pr...

Block hatch question

My question is about hatch on a block. I create Block 1 as shown with reference as shown. I then create a hatch on that block. The hatch is placed with it's relative reference point at absolute 0,0. Is this correct? I had expected the block to be hatched. Oh, and Property Painter looks great. Thanks...

Re: Block edit in place

Hi Jim. I sorta understand your question. You can edit the block when you select the block (in the block list) and click on the pencil. This opens a separate window that has the block in it's individual pieces. If you wish to modify a block in the "main" view (model space) then you must select one o...

Re: Not sure about which is the general intent of the symbol effect for sub layer

Hi. Again, on a parallel, should a sub layer happen to be locked and the parent layer be collapsed (so that locked sub layer not seen in the layers panel) then can some indication that one or more sub layers are locked be shown in the parent layer? Like wise recursively if sub layers under sub layer...

Re: Circle becomes Polyline - when does it happen?

Hi. I guess you can't convert a poly back to a circle, but to find the center point, you could use Menu/Misc/Draw/Centerline (as described in a post recently). OR, you could select the circular poly and draw another circle (on a separate layer) based on 2 opposite points, then delete the original an...

Re: cannot find disruptions of outer contour

@Krischu Sorry, I use hatch to use as a tool to determine unclosed polys. I looked, read the screen, and determined the coordinates of the unclosed poly (in this particular case). I then moved one of the unclosed points to the intersection of the other point - then they worked. Which point to move i...
