Re: dimensions - suppress witness lines

The attached file should explain what happens without witness lines ... The marker for the dimension line and that of the text is at the same spot. The text marker cannot be selected individually. Both solutions to display 2 distinct markers are included. From there one can drag only the text to a n...

Re: dimensions - suppress witness lines

I no longer can adjust the position of dimension text. Another option with your original file is: - Select the right Dimension. - Add '+5' to the Text Position X field so it is displaced by 5 units. Now you have two individual markers and are able to pick and place the text anywhere. :wink: Regards...

Re: dimensions - suppress witness lines

It seems that two markers coincide and then we observe bambuko's problem. One can't pick the text marker but one does pick the Dim marker. Moving that will re-center the text. Align your text with the dimension line and choose to place it above to show individual markers. dim_test_rev.dxf The text o...

Re: dimensions - suppress witness lines

Should QCAD prevent such a modification at the extension lines - I think yes. Should QCAD have the ability to create a Dim without extension lines - I think yes. I find that is rather contradictory: Being able to but also preventing it .... On the other hand I am perfectly able to manually create a...

Re: dimensions - suppress witness lines

Hi,

Not noticed yet ...

Also because I don't think it is a bug.
A dimension without witness lines is usually the inside measurement.
Common is than to align the text centered over the measuring line.

Re: Text rotation after editing

Very neat that your 7th post is an answer to your own question :wink:

Indeed, most or at least many tool settings are persistent.

Re: How to solve trouble with copy?[SOLVED]

Hi,

Not the first time I will be the advocate that scale = zero should be considered invalid.
Although mathematically correct, I see no practical meaning for this.

Hi, Newly added entities or objects do not yet have a valid ID if they were added within a transaction. (We will look that up in a minute) They are only created in group at the end of the transaction. Can I not surround these draw functions with that? Yes you could, but only useful with a group of a...

Re: Contour lines

Richard, The question remains what you want to do with the Z value and the description. QCAD is 2D and only has a minimum support for Z values. What serves the description for of each line piece in a contour? That could be stored in a custom property. Then again, the description is rather linked to ...
