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

Hi Andrew,

I have just read that the default line weights by layer have a value now. As far as I can see with some tests my problem is gone now (3.24.3).
Don't know if that was your intention for this new setting but for me it is a fix for my problem, thanks.

Best regards

Sven

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

Hi Andrew, got the solution now. As you have suggested a bit earlier I have changed the properties of my layers in the lineweight to a value instead of default. Now every line is visible in harcopies and with the Microsoft PDF writer. Still a bit odd that the built in PDF writer doesn't has that pro...

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

Hi Husky, looks like I have to modify a part of my 300 symbols.... To make everything in the best possible way what should I avoid? I have learned that white is not a clever color.... The layer shouldn't have white as default. Just recognized that I'm creating white lines when I make a new line on a...

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 [SOLVED]

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

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...
