koosjr wrote:1. The PDF export does not work good when the drawing gets a little big. with drawings smaller than 2 MB I generally don't have problems.
koosjr wrote:1. Is there ANY chance that QCAD can be made to use ACAD DWG formats - 2000, 2004 and 2007 are more than good enough. I am willing to pay 10 times more for QCAD if this can be done! I absolutely HATE ACAD for the pathetically clumsy UI, but unfortunately it is one of the most used programs and a problem that we often have.

koosjr wrote:3. Support fro true-type fonts? I often get text outputs that are a lot different on QCAD than on other packages. The fonts are often much wider and this is a problem in title blocks.

rdohmeier wrote:The way I do the same thing in Qcad is to create separate drawings, with different dimension and text sizes. Then I have to explode the dimensions. I then "Import" each drawing onto one blank drawing with a title block drawn at a scale of 1:1, scaling each block separately so that they are correctly proportioned on the sheet, and print the sheet at 1:1.
It is a bit of a nightmare and hokey and the regeneration time with all of the blocks assembled on one sheet is a problem in Qcad.
rdohmeier wrote:How to insert drawings? There is no menu "import".
The way that I know is: copy and paste or save it in the library of objects and to insert the object.
Yes, I create blocks. Either I create the block and then copy and paste the drawing into the empty block, or I set my library path to the folder with the drawings and add the block that way.
Is there a way to select all the dimensions at the same time?
The only way I know is to have all the dimensions on one layer, and select layer.
