Re: Hide-Show layers by name

Hello Husky, I use an spanish keyboard. In order to don't interfere with existing shortcuts I decided to use "ñ" and "ç" for these new ones. Actually I would like to improve the command with some dialog like: Enter Character position in layer names -- 1,2,3,... Enter Character -- a-z A-Z 0-9 Enter f...

Hello all, I just finished some commands to control layer visibility depending on the 2nd character of the layer name. I use to name layers with only two characters, the first one is for the building chapter (demolitions, structure, partitions, roofs, etc.) and the second one to define the kind of v...

Re: How do i close a file and switch to command mode

I don't find the way to close the current window/drawing by keyboard. I'm on Linux - Ubuntu 16.04, last QCAD version.
Only "Close All" with Ctrl+Shift+W is possible. I there any other way a part from mouse?

Thanks a lot! Best regards,

David

Re: Custom property filter

Hello,
Yes, I mean using View > Selection filter. I don't see any "Custom Property" option in the Selection Filter "Property" menu, so I guess it is not possible right now, at least without scripting specific command to do that.
Regards, David.

Custom property filter

Hello all,

Is it possible to filter entities by Custom Properties? (I mean the ones user can add at the end of the Properties Toolbar)
If not, I guess it is possible using some script, is it?

Thank you. Best regards,

David

I have a hatch, and I want to get its contour as a polyline. Is there a fast way to do it (not drawing the polyline point to point)?

Re: Is QCAD good for us?

Hello Menno, I also come from AutoCAD. Two years ago I decided to start my own business as an architect. At the beginning, as usually it happens, incomes are not so many, so I decided to get QCAD a chance: - It is very cheap. - Performance is much better than others like FreeCAD and LibreCAD. - Supp...

Snap to Insertion Point of a Block

I know you can snap to insertion point of a block like any other reference point, but I never saw the option to snap ONLY to insertion points of blocks. Is that possible?

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?
