Text mirror

This is a feature request.
I know that text can be exploded and then mirrored, but then it is no longer a text entity needed by some applications using the dxf.

Re: Circle Options bar

I could remove some of the circled tool bars and it would still not improve the vertical space on the screen, nor would it change the necessity to jump to the command bar. I could remove the entire file, view, reset and option tool bars, but as soon as I open a command like circle - center - diamete...

Circle Options bar

I would like to see a coordinate entry on the options bar, particularly for a circle. Take circle, center - diameter for instance. If you can use existing geometry, no sweat. If you have to enter a coordinate then it becomes a bit more cumbersome. If you can use the the existing diameter on tool ent...

Blocks not grouped

using QCAD pro 3.22.0 on one computer import treats imported files as blocks. they show up in the block list and are grouped. On another computer when I use the file - import command, files import exploded, and they do not show up on the block list.

I am not quite sure when this takes place, but I have a bunch of circles that are turning into polylines. any hint on where this may be taking place or how I can prevent this? In the file, all the circular polylines started out as circles. After various editing, importing blocks etc, they turned int...

Re: cxf fonts

Only Standard comes up in my font listing and then all of the true type fonts. If I try to open one of the cxf fonts (3.22.0) first of all the file filter does not have a choice for cxf fonts, If I choose all files and try to open, I get a "Cannot open file 'C:/Program Files/QCAD/fonts/GreekC.cxf'. ...

Or I have an Instrument with a 3.5" bolt circle diameter and I want to place screw holes on the 45 degree points on that cir...

Re: Tool selection

all good thoughts. the right click last used commands is ok, but an extra click is gonna kill me. EasyCAD has a feature that I like, right click activates the last used command.
2 letter shortcuts have never appealed to me

Tool selection

Most of the time, I will use one particular version of a tool. I.E. Circle - center -diameter. I have to select the circle tool on the cad tool bar, then center/diameter. OR select it from the tool matrix which takes up way to much screen space. what if on the main CAD tool bar, it remembered the la...
