Re: Left select issues

Many, many thanks for your investigation. 1) I'll file bug report in a moment... phew, sometimes I wonder whether it's me .... I always doubt myself before thinking of a glitch in the product. 2) I reopened the file and those 2 lines are now visible. I have no idea where they came from.... perhaps p...

Re: [Solved] Interface issue in version 3.24.2 on Windows

Hi, I'd like to second what ahmed_kamal said. Nice consistent dark theme. Thank you. One note though, it's not obvious, but QCAD does need to be restarted to effect changes - not stated in the preferences.

Hatching suggetions

Hatching suggestions: based on recent musings and playing... 1) Hatch dialog: add "Origin" options. 2 mutually exclusive options can be available: 1a) Specific origin absolute X,Y and 1b) Center of Selection (based on selection extremities) with option of relative to center of selection @X,Y. second...

Re: Interface issue in version 3.24.2 on Windows

I see same issue as ahmed when select Dark Theme. Default Theme is fine. I know I'm using snap, but it is still same as what ahmed shows. Also, when changing theme, Apply does nothing - restart required (not stated in that dialog).

IF there is a flashing "|" and it moves to the right when you press space bar then you are already in the command line. I remember when I first started with CP/M...

When making rough diagrams for a building then yes, absolutely - perhaps even 4 views. What I am looking for is cons...

Re: Text doesn't accept color from layer

Hi Krischu. I had a quick look at the properties of the various Text entities. The magenta colour entities (on layer "Text") have a "Text" property same as "Plain text" property - all look fine whereas those that are prefixed with "\C7;" have a black colour and not the layer colour (I use white back...
