Re: Problem copy/paste a drawing from a file to another.

I cannot reproduce this problem here.

Note that I'm pasting into a new, empty drawing with the same drawing unit. If you are pasting into another drawing with block, you might have a block conflict (same block names with different contents).

Re: Printing / PDF Export Line type/weight - lines disappear

To make everything in the best possible way what should I avoid? Avoid the lineweights "Default" and "0.00mm" in layers and for entities as these might print with a zero-width (very weak or even invisible). I have learned that white is not a clever color.... White is fine and the preferred color. W...

Re: Core Dumped on quit

Thanks for the details. Yes, I can also reproduce this problem here now (only under KUbuntu 18.04, not Ubuntu 18.04). The virtual method call seems to happen in a third party library (OpenDesign). It could be an incompatibility. One of those really weird issues.. Let us know if the problem occurs an...

Re: How do I run a script that takes stdin commands

The easiest way to communicate with a running instance of QCAD is to start another instance of QCAD and pass some arguments. For example: 1. Run QCAD and let it running 2. On a command line, run QCAD again with parameters. Examples This will open a file in the running instance of QCAD: qcad.exe some...

Re: I cant open any drawings

There are several factors that can affect the Windows file dialog (network shares, external drives, favourites, etc.).

Can you try using the Qt file dialog instead of the native Windows dialogs?

Re: Core Dumped on quit

OK, thanks. I've installed Kubuntu 18.04 and everything works fine with QCAD 3.24.2. However, I've just noticed that you are running QCAD/CAM, not QCAD. We're most likely looking at an OpenGL problem. Try removing (not renaming, removing) the file plugins/libqcadles3d.so I will move this to the corr...

Re: Resolution for exploding splines

You can find the preferences of the exploding tools at: Edit > Application Preferences > Modify > Explode By default, splines are exploded into polylines with tangentially connected arc segments. You can specify the tolerance (maximum error) for this conversion under "Spline approximation tolerance"...

Re: Core Dumped on quit

I don't have Kubuntu 18.04 here at the moment, but Ubuntu 18.04 which doesn't have that problem with QCAD 3.24.2. Also the "qcad-3.24.2-pro-linux-qt5.13-x86_64" package seems to work just fine (using a newer Qt version). It could be that there is an incompatible Qt style plugin that attempts to unif...

Re: Printing / PDF Export Line type/weight - lines disappear

Please change the lineweights of your layers to something other than "Default" (e.g. 0.05mm).
