Struggeling with Viewports and printing

Setting up printing from scratch using viewports has been very frustrating, and I am wondering what I am doing wrong. [yes, I have read the 'Printing' and 'Working with Layout Blocks and Viewports'] I installed (because of some block issues) the latest snapshot (322.1.2) and restarted by creating a ...

Layout properties

Is there somewhere a description of the Layout viewport properties? I have a printer that automatically switches between A3 and A4 printing. In the flange.dxf example I see that the Media name can be specified. I wonder if that would help (in which format) or alternatively specifying the plot paper ...

Re: Importing blocks with attributes

[/quote] Try dragging the block by dragging a line (somewhere along the line, NOT close to one of the red or blue reference points). There's indeed a difference in dragging the object or only a single reference point of an object. [/quote] Confirm that. A bit confusing but workable. Found another is...

Re: Importing blocks with attributes

Box handle: If I select the block by e.g, clicking on its left hand bottom corner, the small blue box that appears. It selects the whole block including lines and texts, and that moves as a unit. That single click also selects the attributes that are part of the block, but they don't move along. I a...

Re: Importing blocks with attributes

See attached. When I select the block, the attributes are also separately selected, I have not been able to 'group' them as one unit. (could not find a group command). Hence if I grab the box handle, only the box moves. If I use a move command, the whole group moves , as would happen with any multip...

Importing blocks with attributes

Designed a block with attributes and placed in the library. I can load it in a drawing through the library browser. However, If I select and move the block, all 'static' parts of the block move correctly, but the attributes stay in place. What went wrong in the block design? Rob (Running QCAD snapsh...

Installing qcadcam-3.22.0.11 failed

I installed qcadcam-3.22.0.11-pro-win64-installer.msi over the existing 3.22.0 installation to test the fixed block import/export function [Windows 7]
Lots of updated folders, but there is no qcad.exe in the QCADCAM directory anyymore.??
Is this the wrong procedure to try a snapshot?

Re: Import Option Bar

Good. Would have been nice to know, spend a few days before I figured out that it was not me. Will check the bug list more frequently.
Is this in the latest snapshot?
When is the next release due?

Import Option Bar

How can I stick the Import option Bar? There seems to be no entry for it in the Toolbars and Widget tab. I tried to import a block, and when I click File ¦ Import, the import option bar appears, but then it is inaccessible because the Windows 'Import Drawing' box opens. I can open a block, but nothi...

Re: Running on Windows 7 with network shares

Setting compatibility to Windows 7 solves it, thanks. However, application opening takes now 35 - 40 seconds instead of 4.
Anyway, I have a work around. I plan to switch to Linux once the new AMD CPUs are available, and that should fix it (I assume).

Regards,

Currently I have QCAD installed on a Windows 7 system, using Synology based network shares. I Can access, edit and save the remote .dwg files fine, but as soon as I file a design with an other extension (.dxf) or name, Windows blocks it. I am logged in with admin privileges and the appropriate right...
