Re: Hatch has stopped working in QCAD Pro Version: 3.21.2.0 (3.21.2)

Eric, Hatching with any cad program can be tiresome at times that's for sure, but with QCAD the selection of tools I find are remarkable to say the least. I have used a method over and over again with constant success, please see here my method, I've posted it in the 'Tips and Tutorials' forum as it...

Hatching workaround - for diagrammatic purposes only!

Often, here in the machine shop I am confronted with the wonderful task (who am I kidding... ) on cleaning up drawings for either cnc output or for presentation purposes and after many hours of scrambling about with hatching work I eventually came up with a quick and easy solution to hatch an area w...

Re: conversione da dxf in cdr

Lavora nell'unità corretta di cui hai bisogno in QCAD, assicurati di salvare come formato .DXF.
Apri il file in CorelDraw e cambia l'unità impostata sull'unità che ti serve!

Re: Locating duplicate objects.

Hi Miklstel,

I have moved this topic into this appropriate forum, as Husky has mentioned, the Pro version has additional tools which you can take advantage of, it would be well worth trialing it.

Re: Linetype issue

Hello Nate, welcome.

Most likely the line type is set to something dashed!

Best practice is to set up your own layers and set the line weight, line type and colour to what works for you!

Re: Polyline size entries swapping in property editor fields

DP-SanDiego,

Yes I totally agree with you, from a QCAD users perspective this should be the case otherwise to the many this would seem completely wrong.

Re: Polyline size entries swapping in property editor fields

Hi,

Re: Pocketing letters

Hello PUIQ, This is a simple task, there is no need to mill the letters by pocketing, too small! Simply keep outlines and any inner contours like with an 'e' and use a hatch fill instead.
