OS: Debian "Testing" (Jessie) 64-bit
QCad version: 188.8.131.52; latest build from Git pull 6/6/14
Here's what's happening:
I want to move an entity or draw a line, and I want the start or destination to be something relative to another point, and it needs to be exact, so I will be typing in the coordinates rather than mousing. In ver 3.4, I would select my tool (whether modification or drawing) select the "Set Relative Zero" icon at the bottom of the tool panel, set relative zero to wherever I want, and then type in my destination coordinates with "@" to modify or draw.
In ver. 3.6, after clicking the "Set Relative Zero" icon, it asks for "Reference Point", and I click where I want to set the Relative Zero, but it doesn't set. Neither does typing in the coordinates for Relative Zero. The Relative Zero just stays where it is. Relative Zero does move when I draw a new line or move something, which is normal. I've tried re-compiling and the behavior is still there. Running from the command line, I can't see any debug output from setting relative zero. Any ideas? I've been using QCad since 2004 and really miss this feature.
