Reset Origin

Hey there developers. Anybody out there willing to put together a script to Reset the origin. Basically I think the actions would be to turn all layers visible, select all entities. Select a new point where the origin should be. Move the selected items from the new origin point to 0,0. I'm not quite...

Re: Display Radians in properties

I have found and changed both drawing and application preference settings to indicate radians. this does not change how the angle is displayed in properties. You mention scripts. I am not up to speed on scripts but would like to be. My first attempt on educating myself was to go to the reference man...

Re: Display Radians in properties

No, I don't think that is right. The radian equivalent to 180 degrees = pi = 3.1415 The radian equivalent to 90 degrees = pi/2 = 1.5707 in your example the radian equivalent of 116.2696 deg = 2.0292 radians arc length in measurement units = radius * sweep in radians = 13.8484 * 2.0292 = 28.01023.

ordinate dimension origin

Is there any way to set the 0,0 point of an ordinate dimension other than moving all entities?

Display Radians in properties

I have found the setting to display radians in dimensions. Is there a way to display radians in the properties widget?

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

The problem is the need to move from one side of the screen to the other to enter data common to a command.

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

circles turning into polylines

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'. ...
