Re: Line length confusion

Okay. I think there is an "undocumented characteristic" here. Husky mentioned duplicate entries - Not sure where they mysteriously popped up. CVH. Under Application Preferences, the Property Editor, the "Always show all properties..." seems to have solved this issue (an application restart is requir...

Re: Line length confusion

Many thanks.
Please see attached video.
Perhaps my workflow is awkward, but the only typing were the numbers for offset and for the initial 250x8 rectangle (polyline). I am not convinced here.

Line length confusion [Solved - sorta]

Good day. I am having some difficulty in understanding lengths of entities/lines. I attach a video and a .dxf file. Top Original is based on first drawing a polyline rectangle (not shown) and then breaking up bits and then adding line segments. This is a wierd answer for line length. Middle is based...

Free42/DM42

Just as a matter of interest, there is a really nice free calculator designed by a Thomas Okken called FREE42. It is an excellent replica of the HP42S (no longer available). Free42 is available on PC/Android and other platforms. It's a free (as in free beer) utility with great abilities. There are e...

Re: Rotating an object when I don't know the exact angle to rotate

How long have I been using Qcad?? and I didn't know that. Every day's a learning day. Cheers Husky :wink: Between yourself, Andrew, CVH, Mr H, Ryan and everybody else.... the "QCAD" flexibility seems endless. I must admit (albeit slightly off topic)... every time I see updates I say to myself "fina...

Undo/Redo observation

When first started QCAD Edit menu has Undo [-] and Redo [-] Draw a circle then it changes to "Undo [circle type" -- ("Undo [Center, Radius" being example) Draw a Rectangle then the Undo menu selection does not change but stays "Undo [Center, Radius". Likewise for the Redo menu option. All works as i...

Re: selective layers constraint when scaling

Ryan - thank you. You are correct, not really where I wanted to go and way over my head :oops: . However, your time is most appreciated. CVH - :idea: Now the lightbulb is on! I see what you mean about the box. I just never took the stretch tool to the outer limits. Husky - you need to box up all tho...

Yeah, I saw that, - working on motorcycle and trying to conjure correct words and an example are 3 things... being male, it's obvious I'm not capable of chewing gum and walking simultaneously :) I'll persevere...

Re: selective layers constraint when scaling

Many thanks guys... but I think we're at an impasse. Unless there's a completely different train of thought. I am specifically wanting to "lock" a specific layer dimensions and keep ratio of position with an adjustable (scalable/moveable) entity. Attached should be clearer? I want to keep the red bi...

Re: selective layers constraint when scaling

Thank you. I think that might not be what I'm asking, but I'll try. I'm trying to constrain any stretching on certain layers/entities in a block/layer. However, I'm off the the drawing to play with that now. Nope..

Very best

[Answered/Solved] Selective layers constraint when scaling

Hello again. I hope I can ask this correctly. I want to create a "template" window block. However, windows do change dimension, normally the frame remaining a fixed dimension. Is there a way to re-dimension a entity/block but keep certain entities in that layer/block constrained to the dimensions it...

Re: How to move point of line or shape?

There are 2 little things you should play with.

1) Left click and hold ON the point and then drag [that point]
2) Left click and hold on entity near a point and then drag.

2 distinct actions. Play with lines, polylines, circles, ellipses, blocks, dimensions.... play....

Play, play, play.....
