Re: Added toolpath is on the wrong side

I have checked all my drawings by re-doing the toolpaths on them, and I am happy to report that QCAD did everyone of them correctly (in Snapshot 3.22.09). Also I have noticed that if I select the "Outline" and the "Islands/Holes" together and make a new toolpath with setting for outside, QCAD will d...

How to switch to a different layer automatically

I always draw hatches in their own Layer called "Hatch". Is there a way to switch to that layer and then execute the "Hatch from selection" command in one shortcut, say by editing the tools section in "Application Settings"?

Re: Added toolpath is on the wrong side

Thanks again Husky!
I did play with it too, and i found that if i move the problem "o" just 1/16" up, it will be cut correctly. So i figure is some kind of interference with the other letters/objects/contours.

I don't know how to submit a bug report.

Re: Added toolpath is on the wrong side

I was also looking at the QCAD output on the command line, and it shows that for the problem contour.

Re: Added toolpath is on the wrong side

Thanks, Husky, for the quick response. I am using QCAD/CAM 3.22 on Win 10, Intel Core i9-9900K. First, I like to say that I am very impressed with QCAD.

Added toolpath is on the wrong side

I am using QCAD/CAM 3.22 (latest version). I have many drawings that contain several contours and they need to be cut on the inside. When i select all of the (inside cut) contours to create a new toolpath, QCAD would create the path correctly for most of them, except one or two of them which get a t...
