changing rulers

Do you have a question you want to ask an existing QCAD user about QCAD and what you can do with it? Do you want to know if a particular feature exists? This is the place to ask.

Hi, how do you change the rulers to reflect what you are wishing to draw?

The rulers adjust to the grid settings:
Edit > Drawing Preferences > General > Grid

Note that rulers in CAD are for your rough orientation only. Most CAD systems don't have rulers at all. You would never use a ruler in CAD like a ruler on paper to measure or draw something. There are far superior tools for that in CAD (snapping, coordinate entry, entry of lengths, distances, etc.).

If this doesn't answer your question, please elaborate or post a screenshot of what you are trying to do.
