Re: separate Move/Copy commands

PS: Why is C + P for copy or R +C for copy with reference slower than C + Enter in Autocad?

Re: separate Move/Copy commands

I'd strongly advice against using single letter keycodes. This will disable all two-letter keycodes starting with the same letter. Adding the shortcut "C" will disable all shortcuts for circles (CI, CR, ...).

Re: Menus not working in fullscreen mode ?

Sounds like a Qt issue, possibly related to OpenGL / Windows Drivers, etc.

One possible solution might be to remove the OpenGL plugin:
plugins/qcadgles3d.dll

This will also remove the 3D simulation widget but otherwise does not affect QCAD/CAM.

Re: create a new toolbar

It's certainly possible through the script interface.
There's no GUI to somehow click together your own toolbar.

This has been implemented and will be included in the next snapshot release and possibly in the next stable release of QCAD Professional.

Re: QCAD Pro 3.24 Won't Launch Win 10 64b

I'd do a clean installation from scratch (no need to remove anything).

If it doesn't work, please reset your QCAD installation as described here:

Re: Beginning Scripting

The function include does not return anything. So that result of calling include is undefined. It's a JavaScript oddity but doesn't mean it didn't work.
