Re: Overlays

All makes sense now - there are too many smart hidden gems under the hood. Yes, the background is white - thus the switch does what it says. Refreshing the view as you assert is how to redraw the items. Not sure on the colour transparency (as I mentioned in the startpoint item)... looks like the "re...

Re: Overlays

Overlays might be useful (order certainly). However, there's some quirks: Order- change text colour doesn't work well. Change background to blue and the text colour is white (preferences) and the text remains black. Change text colour to cyan and it is now cyan - change from cyan to white and it is ...

Draw/Polyline/Polyline from Selection - not selected

When I select Draw/Polyline/Polyline from Selection and a polyline is created. The new Polyline is not selected. Can the newly created polyline be selected? Similarly, if I select several entities and those entities are on different layers, is the first listed layer (where one of the entities is on)...

Re: How do i select a line under a line?

Also - go a little up and to left of the 50mm line and select going right and down to select the entire 50mm line. This will only select the entity(s) that are fully enclosed in selection bounds - not selecting the 100mm line.

Active layer suggestion

I know that the active layer is shown with an icon representing a pencil. Open new drawing and layer 0 has the icon in that row and the layer has no blue/grey highlight. Add a new layer (Layer 1) and that layer is now selected (with pencil icon) and still no blue highlight background. Then select la...

@Sjonnie, you've seen but the tip of the "support iceberg". Andrew, Husky and others provide unparalleled support for QCAD. You'll not be disappointed.

Re: Add new layer - minor issue

Thanks Andrew. Yeah, the blue background threw me a sec then. I did notice the pencil icon. I'll keep that in mind. All good otherwise (from what I do use).

Re: Add new layer - minor issue

Layers issue has returned. Add new layer and the new layer, even though active, is not highlighted although the pencil icon shows. And in some cases no layers are highlighted after the new layer is added or the wrong layer is highlighted. 3.22.09

Re: Tangential

Thanks Andrew. It's just that the tangential tool is available when in angular line mode. That seems to have messed me up. Also, sometimes I see "tangential" as a snap point sometimes - when, I can't seem to replicate. So, for me to make a tangential angular line to a circle, I first create the circ...

Re: Tangential

Thanks. But I still think there is a bug. I want to draw a line tangential to a circle. Say, 45deg. I draw the circle then choose the angular line (choose middle) and try and make it tangential to that circle - complete fail. :?:

Tangential

Using 3.22.0.5 - can someone give me a lesson on using the Tangential tool? I just seem to fall flat on my face when attempting to use it.
