Re: Dimension text size and arrow for imported drawings, way too small.

These Application Preferences are defaults for new drawings (drawings created from scratch using File > New ). They have no effect whatsoever on drawings loaded from a file. App_Preferences_NewDrawing_Dimensions.PNG Again, this is intended behavior. Drawing specific settings are stored in the file (...

Re: Hiding blocks using layers

Each block reference ("block insertion") is placed on a layer. If that layer is switched off, the block reference is also turned off. 1. Insert block "block1" on layer "A". 2. Insert block "block1" on layer "B". Turning off layer "A" will h...

Re: Change programatically LineType property

Linetypes are objects stored in the document. Their IDs can be queried from the document: var line = this.createLineEntity(this.getDocument(), point1, point2); line.setLinetypeId(this.getDocument().getLinetypeId("ACAD_ISO02W100")); var op = new RAddObjectsOperation(); op.addObject(line); t...

Re: contextuel dock widget

You can use a focus listener to get notified when the current document changes. In ECMAScript: var fl = new RFocusListenerAdapter(); appWin.addFocusListener(fl); fl.focusUpdated.connect(MyClass, "doSomething"); ... MyClass.doSomething = function(document) { // called when current document ...

A question: exploding - detecting zero length entities - deleting them - auto-create-polyline has to be done polyline by polyline? For multiple polylines, you could do all at once: - Select all polylines - Modify > Explode - Modify > Detect Zero-Length Entities - Click Delete button in options tool...

Re: cutter jumps at multipoint objects

The circle shaped polyline has some duplicate nodes (to be precise, very small or zero sized arc segments). To get rid of these tiny segments, proceed as follows: - Select polyline - Modify > Explode - Modify > Detect Zero-Length Entities - Click Delete button in options toolbar at the top - Right-C...

Re: Extending class RLineEntity

So with your response to add new properties to RObject or REntity, I comeback to my question, have I to purchase C++ licence for doing that ? Ideally, you can create all your extensions as a plugin which can be distributed under any license of your choice without the need for a QCAD C++ Libraries l...

Re: Extending class RLineEntity

That's why I think I'll need to add my new properties by C++. There is no difference if you add properties using the ECMAScript interface or C++ (ECMAScript calls into C++). QCAD supports custom string type properties to be attached to all objects (entities, layers, blocks). If this is not sufficie...

Re: Script Shell. How to repeat last command? Variable scope

[list]1.- Is there some way to get last line entered? Yes, arrow up should do this but is currently broken due to implementation of arrow up shortcuts to pan zoom. 2.- I'm trying to use Script Shell to define or modify variables directly in QCAD interface. I use that variables in scripts located in...

Re: Dimension text size and arrow for imported drawings, way too small.

It is possible to "embed" somehow this commandline option into Qcad? No. Also seems that for the imported files, even using the command-line switch recommended by you, if I draw new dimmensions seems to use the Text height Size of 0.18 in the "DrawingOptions/Dimension/Dimension Setti...
