How do I align the size by layer?

Greetings all Qcadders again I am continuing to learn more and work my way thru chapter 13 in this Qcad book (the chapter on text). However I have a continuing problem that the scale of text gets way off only inside the "edit" box. While it looks fine on the drawing. I typically draw work in actual ...

Re: Need a little help setting up a template.

Hi, no need to play around with Linear factor ect. Just break the math down: you will print with a 1/4" = 1' scale on a ANSI B, that scales everything down in your drawing to fit on an ANSI B. To be exact it scales it 48 times smaller, to counter that you have to enlarge entities like frame / title...

Need a little help setting up a template.

Greetings all, I am working on making some templates for what I usually work in 11X17" A3 paper and US units.
I am having a hard time setting up reasonable scales of text and the default 'Linear Factor' seems to be tied to the printing scale of 1/4 IN = 1 Foot.
Any tips?
Template attached.
Thank you.

Re: hatch pattern too dense. hatch pattern generation aborted

Thank you, I find it really helps to have the printed copy of your book, but I am still going to have lots of questions on here. :mrgreen: I see now my 7 attempts were successful just at the wrong scale ;) I never thought it would let me put a hatch on a hatch. I take it the best way to clean it up ...

Re: hatch pattern too dense. hatch pattern generation aborted

Thanks for the quick reply!
Is there a way I can change the hatch in that drawing at that scale so it does not slow down Qcad?

[solved] How do I paste aligning other than middle or grid?

Greetings I would like to copy a wall and paste it aligning its right side to an existing line. I have tried the options in the 'snap' menu, all of them still give me the yellow 'middle' or 'grid' options. The restrict horizontal and vertical seem to pick arbitrary locations. I am hoping to paste wi...

Browse Tool?

Greetings all, often when I reopen a drawing that I have not used in a long time or from another program it is super zoomed out and hard to find the actual drawing to zoom into.
Is there a hand 'browse' tool that will push the drawing around for me?
Thanks in advance.

I noticed Qcad 3 has support now for dwg.
Is it using libredwg or the open design alliance libraries?
Thanks

That is exiting news. I only use qcad for basic stuff but have definitely gotten my money's worth. I think the project would benefit from a developer like yourself and it would be probably worth the time spent in not spending cash on dwg licensing fees. They have a shortage of testers and complain a...

LibreDWG -SummerOfCode DWG write support

Now that LibreDWG is making progress is Qcad looking at this as a better long term DWG library than the "open" design alliance?
