[SOLVED] Text with Clip to Rectangle

Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon, QCAD Pro 3.24.2.0

'Clip to Rectangle' decomposes the letters of text into their constituent segments.

To reproduce: enter text (I used Deja Vu Sans). Modify > Clip to Rectangle. Draw a box around the text. Letters are decomposed and can no longer be edited as text.

Re: Adjusting Background Images

@Husky: Thank you so much. I love QCAD - much easier than AutoCAD or the Draftsight clone.

@Matfie: This is what I did initially and it works but is a bit slower.

Thank you both.

Adjusting Background Images [Solved]

OS: Linux Mint 19.3, QCAD Professional : 3.24.0.0 I use QCAD to plot survey results. I can then insert a background image, e.g. from Google Maps, and I can set the Draw Order to 'Send to back' so that it appears under my drawing. But I cannot easily align (move/rotate/resize) the image with the draw...

Construction Lines (a wish)

I'd love to see the 'infinite line' feature, called Construction Lines in AutoCAD, or Geometry in AllyCAD.
