Snap to Insertion Point of a Block

Re: setting printing color

I use to solve this with two "template" files. One with layers in "model" style an another with layers in "plot" style. Just import the proper file in your drawing "overlaying" layers.

Re: Zooming using scroll wheel

I use zoom in and out by keyboard very often. For me the problem is that in this way zoom is always centered in the middle of the screen. Would be great to have the possibilitie of center zoom by keyboard in the pointer as well.

By the way, is anyone using apple magic mouse in qcad?

Re: zoom in and out by keyboard factor

It would be intetesting to have configurable PAN factor by keyboard as well. Just a suggestion.
I'm talking about the distance panned using keyboard arrows.
