What is the user name you've chosen? I cannot find a user under "52buickman" or your e-mail address.

Re: Changing font face of Dimensions

The Community Edition does not have that preference (QCAD Professional only).

Is there any way to control the background color in an SVG export?
No, this is not currently supported (i.e. the background is always transparent).

You can create a polyline from any of these shapes and then use:

Re: New nesting tool ...

Yes, I can see that that will probably not work. Please understand that a nesting tool is not a puzzle-solver. It proceeds more or less at random (insertion orders based on size with random variations, random angles, best position according to alignment), improving always the best fit to increase th...

Re: Exploding text & splines

Can it be that we lost the functionality to explode TTF to splines. Nothing has changed with the exploding of entities in the last releases. As I remember TTF text exploded to spline outlines. This depends a lot on the font and how it was constructed / what type of geometry it contains. In App Pref...

Re: Using dwg2maptiles how can I make the images generated have no whitespace around the outside

Map tiles are by definition squares. If your drawing is not square shaped (i.e. same height as width), there will always be margins either at the sides or at the top / bottom.

Re: New nesting tool ...

Could it be that you are selecting the sheet as well as the parts? It looks like it in the screenshots. That would mean that the sheet is also a part. It would certainly explain the 1 non-placeable part ;) When doing that, I can reproduce the weird alignment. Let's just say in that case the behavior...

Re: New nesting tool ...

If my alignment is Left-Bottom why is a solution offered Right-Top? I cannot reproduce that here. Perhaps attach the file? It's also odd that you are getting 1 non-placeable part. Can't reproduce that either. and BTW: Every alignment option exist twice in that list ... :wink: "Left - Bottom" means ...

Re: Overlays

Change background to blue and the text colour is white (preferences) and the text remains black. Is your drawing background white or bright? If so, QCAD automatically adjusts the text color from white to black. Try to make it 'bright' instead or configure that behavior under: Edit > Application Pre...

1. Question: Quantity, Yes, maybe in a future version. 2. Question: Meaning of "Not placable" It means that some parts were not nested. Not sure what was wrong in this case. 3.
