Re: Printing / PDF Export Line type/weight - lines disappear

Hi Husky, I think (still not 100% sure) your wild guess is right. However, difficult to understand the secrets behind. I was never paying attention to the setting prevent white on white and black on black so this is activated and unfortunately I was creating some bits and pieces in white on white bu...

Printing / PDF Export Line type/weight - lines disappear

Hi Andrew, I'm struggling to find the fault I might make. Sometimes I have some missing lines, dots, text, etc. in a printout. I have the same missing bits and pieces when I do a PDF export by using the print dialogue and the Microsoft PDF writer. When I use the built in PDF export I can see everyth...

Importing SKF files

Hi Andrew, not sure if anyone else has already asked that question, but I have tons of SKF files from Autosketch. I assume there is no way to get them converted to dxf or dwg in an automated way? So the only way is to open them one by one in Autosketch and save them as dxf? Anyone else here in the b...

Re: Adjusting Dimension properties accordingly to one's needs

No, this style is not currently supported. Labels are placed on top of the dimension line (ISO) not at the center with a gap (ANSI).
I would like to get it with a gap (ANSI) as well. Maybe we will see this in the near future? :wink:

Re: QCAD freezing

Thanks Husky. It is still slow on my system. Next year I get a new laptop and hopefully large files will not anymore slow QCAD a lot down. Still a bit strange for me to understand as I cannot see a bottleneck in the taskmanager while QCAD is working on this file - there is still free RAM available, ...

QCAD freezing

Hi together, I have an old drawing from Autosketch which I would like to use in QCAD. So I have saved it in Autosketch as DWG an opened it in QCAD. As it is in many bits and pieces I tried to make a block from it, but if I do so QCAD freezes. DCC_10_ATM.DWG I have attached the file - any ideas why? ...

Re: Shortcut key to close print preview?

If I get you right you are searching for CTRL+Shift+P which takes you to print preview and back as well.

Additional informations in library items

Hi,

I assume there is no possibility to add some additional informations in a symbol which I don't want to get visible in the drawing?
I thought of something like "standard delivery with 1 x 150, 1 x 100, 1 x 60 cm safety fences" - a simple textblock which could be visible in the properties editor.

Small bug in the tool settings

Hi there, not something serious but a quite strange behaviour. If I untick in the general tool settings the delete function from the tool bar, than I can't delete somthing by pressing the delete button on the keyboard anymore, the ER shortcut still works. If I put a tick in the checkbox for the dele...

Old reference point

Hi Andrew, before you start to post more question and answers them yourself, I have a fresh one for you :mrgreen: When I draw something or take a library item and move it there is a red circle with a cross inside remaining on the old position. Is that just for some internal reasons or is there a ben...

Re: Tool Shortcuts Cannot be Stored - More Problems

Hi Barry,

but I assume you are aware of the adjustments for the auto snap in applicationm preferences? That helps a bit.
There is many bits and pieces different to Autosketch but after a couple of weeks intensive QCAD work I like it much more than Autosketch.

Re: Tool Shortcuts Cannot be Stored - More Problems

Yes, same behaviour on my installation. I have tried as well to change snap center and snap end to F2 and F3 and the first got lost after I made the second one. My next try was to add the two new shortcuts, I deleted them and added them again and after that both stayed, would be a workaround if that...

Re: Reference lines

:P no bug. Works.
With this software you have done a really great job. I hope you are young enough to keep QCAD alive for many more years.
