Re: Can I run community edition in osx?

I'm afraid but compiling sources is usually not the best solution for new users. In a nutshell, you will have to install XCode, download / compile Qt 3.3.x, set up the QTDIR environment variable, download the QCad sources and run scripts/build_qcad.sh. Very, very new to mac. I like very much what I ...

Re: Dimensions and Measurements

Will any of the tools for drawing text or putting dimensions on drawings from the scripting language be available as standard any time soon? Probably not real soon. The scripting engine that QCad uses (QSA from TrollTech) has been dropped as a product. It will take some time to port the existing sc...

Sounds strange. How do you try to run QCad? If you are not trying from the command line, please try this: cd /directory/where/qcad/is ./qcad If it won't start, please run ldd to check if you have all required libraries: ldd qcad Thank you for your time. I downloaded and tried the new version and I h...

thank you for your answer the raster file is at 4209x3276px for only 962ko, my system can handle it (Autocad uses it without slowing down) so is there any way to prevent the default behavior ?

Re: Resize rectangle

What is the best/easiest way to resize a rectangle? Currently is use the stretch functionality I wonder if there is a way to select a side and have it repositioned and by doing so resize the rectangle. Marcel QCad does not know the concept of a rectangle. If you draw a rectangle in QCad, it simply ...

Re: infinite raster zoom

Hi, Once I reach a certain zoom level on a raster, if I go further then I only see the blackboard and the grid, forcing me to zoom out. How can I continue to zoom on the image while not passing trough it ? QCad hides the image if it becomes very large to prevent it from slowing down the graphics vi...
