Note that this forum is for QCAD Professional (, not the QCAD Community Edition ( There is a separate forum for the QCAD Community Edition.

The manual you have referenced is for QCAD 1.x (no longer developed or supported).

Font editing in QCAD 2.x:

1. File - Open - choose "Font *.cxf) as file format
2. Make sure the block list is shown.
3. Edit blocks / add blocks to edit / add glyphs.

Format of block names:

[xxxx] A

Where 'xxxx' is the hexadecimal Unicode of the glyph and 'A' is the glyph itself (optional).

Basic knowledge on working with blocks and Unicode is required.
