Re: Create arcs and circles from tessellated segments

A problem that I'm encountering is that the PolyLineFromSelection object needs to be "initialized" by manually using it once from the toolbar or menu item before it is available to the script That looks like an 'include' flaw ... :!: I'm still in the struggling stage with the framework because docu...

Re: Import Rectangles from a cutlist

Hi, With scripting almost anything is possible ... :wink: In my case it would be easy because it is a snippet of code I already use. There are two things missing in your definition. The where and the angle . That would look like: "Rectangle", OffsetX, OffsetY, SizeX, SizeY, Angle (Closed polyline) O...

Re: how to test text entity

Then NOT force new: op.addObject(newTextEntity, false, false); // NOTuseCurrentAttributes, NOTforceNew My bad (copy-paste issue) :oops: Now you alter the text directly in the RTextEntity. No need for the getData or to create a new RTextEntity. That is, if this is all you need to do ... RModifyObject...

Re: how to test text entity

Hi, that is more than one question. :wink: RTextEntity has also the getPlainText() method. Common is var ids from ' ID selected ' or ' more ID's ' but it is at your preference. RTextEntity is a pointer to a clone of the actual entity. https://qcad.org/doc/qcad/3.0/developer/class_r_document.html#ab0...

Re: How Do I use "arctangential" but with angle as a constraint

Still, plausible ... in limited cases. - IF P1 and the start orientation is known. - IF P2 is selected. Then there might be an arc with given start orientation and sweep angle that fits the demand. The radius is the variable here. This is if P2 is 'beyond the line' and on a line with the orientation...

Code: Select all

var a = doc.queryEntity(9145);
Loads variable 'a' with an REntityPointer to the entity in the document by current id = 9145.

Then one check if variable 'a' is a text entity:

Code: Select all

isTextEntity(a);

Have a play, it's extremely clever. @ VSteele: Correct, Curves = RevisionCloud_L painter, Curves2 = RevisionCloud_LM painter Both as continuous polylines, both are fully scalable in drawing uni...

Could you explain how
Sure,
It is not a GUI action ...

Re: Help with making a script file

Hi John, Already a while QCAD doesn't explode circles to 1 full Arc but in two 2 semi full Arcs. A Polyline that is. Recently, explosion of circles is made optional in App.Prefs. Below you'll find a script for full Arcs to Circles: Regards. CVH // Full Arcs to Circles script by CVH var doc = getDocu...
