Re: Duplicate offset library part

Hi vdanny. What I did was create a polyline rectangle, I think 10mmx20mm (x,y), origin 0,0. That should be okay to create. Then I selected the Modification Tool (on the left toolbar). The Copy/Move icon is greyed. I then clicked on the rectangle and then the Copy/Move option was available. I then se...

Re: Duplicate offset library part

Hi Danny. Is the attached video what you are looking for? I created a rectangle with poly line and just copied using a reference point and then in the command line specified where to place the copied based on a relative offset to the specified reference point.

Re: Open existing drawing invokes Auto Zoom?

Husky, Thanks so, so much. As I said, this is definitely a forest/trees thingie. I'm sure I looked under that tab but perhaps I did not associate "Graphics View/Appearance" with "file load" :?: - not really associative, but now I know. Thanks again for your continued great help in answering so many ...

Open existing drawing invokes Auto Zoom?

Is there a preference that does not Auto Zoom a drawing when opened? I've looked, but sometimes I can't see the forest for the trees.

Re: "Quick SVG Export" question

Sorry Andrew... problem is: Not seeing any details other than a few arrows. Sorry if you could not see what I was obviously referring to. I shall try changing line weights, but I thought the DXF would have been enough for a casual glance to defer to. I tried to present the entire issue, perhaps I di...

Husky: How do you get qcad to provide error messages such as the one you gave about the PDF file not being available? I am having trouble finding how to generate such useful messages.

Thanks, - charles
Same way I did.

Re: Autocad drawing will not load to view

I tried in AutoCAD 2016 and received errors stating invalid external references... you got files that might rely on other add-ons or are corrupt.

Re: Dimension lines using center or middle point

Many thanks Husky. Now I see the light!!!.... Got it! I have done most drawing using deliberate snap points. I feel a little embarrassed now :oops:

Makes total sense. I'll use Auto more as well.

And thanks for your very prompt response.

Very best

Dimension lines using center or middle point

Hi again. I am trying to draw a dimension line from one endpoint to the middle of another line segment. I have given link to the video. If I use center or middle of one point the dimension disappears.... am I missing something?
