Im new to CAD. I have designed some products on QCAD and would like to know if someone will kindly tell me how to create stitch holes. It seems that I can make little dots but I don't want to have to do each dot one by one on each patterns as that will take ages. Is there a short cut? And how can I make the stitch holes the same spacing/distance from each other, say if I needed to make five stitches per inch throughout, how would I do this? I SO very much appreciate any help.
Many kind regards,

Alternatively, the tool that clive mentioned could be improved to offer an option for 'as many points as needed with a fixed distance between points'.
How should this be visualized in the end? Just points with a certain distance or potentially also short lines with length A and spacing B?
