Templates get deleted on uninstall

Post by linnemann » Tue Apr 12, 2016 6:52 am


The latest versions of QCAD removes my custom templates on uninstall.

I have created a symlink to my templates folder into the original qcad folder.

Code: Select all

mklink /D "c:\Program Files\QCAD\libraries\templates" "F:\TEGNINGER\QcadLibrary\Templates"
It did not do this prior to version 3.12

The reason I do this is because I am lazy and there are no way to set the default template directory when using Ctrl+Shift+n

It would be better if the templates settings behave similar to the library folder list, then we can move our own templates folder to the top.
