sorry, found that zooming in changes the canvas view from centimeters to millimeters ..
Please note that zooming only changes the grid density (space between grid dots), not the drawing unit.

Re: Importation de bitmap

Les bitmaps n'ont généralement pas d'échelle ou de taille définie. Un pixel peut être de 0.001mm de large ou de 1km de large, cela dépend entièrement de l'utilisateur du bitmap. Vous devrez indiquer à QCAD comment vous souhaitez mettre le bitmap à l'échelle, c'est-à-dire quelle doit être la taille d...

Re: Hi Everyone!

Thanks. In this case, I can confirm that the auto factor fails / is not precise enough as a result of a rounding issue. I'd recommend to enter the known scale instead when dimensioning the parts: "1:24" for the smaller viewport and "1:12" for the larger one. The problem has been fixed for the next r...

Re: Color of selected entities

You can adjust the color of selected entities (and other colors) under:

Edit > Application Preferences > Graphics View > Colors > Selection

The selection color is the preference "Primary selection color".

Re: Hi Everyone!

Thank you for your kind feedback. You'd typically create those dimensions in paper space and make sure that in the options toolbar the option "Auto" is ticked. Dimensions are then created with the appropriate linear factor for the viewport they are referencing (see also property "Linear Factor" of d...

Re: Wrong map tiles generation

Thanks for the details. It's a problem with the spatial index that ships with Windows packages. We have released a snapshot release (3.26.4.5) today which comes with a different spatial index module that should fix the problem. The update is available from your download link under "Snapshots".
