Re: Refresh a widget

Making operations not undoable (argument false) means transactions are not recorded. However, the layer list and other widgets are rely on transactions to update themselves. Not undoable operations should only be used for offscreen documents that don't offer any form of user interaction at all.

Re: Refresh a widget

If you remove the layers using RDeleteObjectOperation, the layer list will be updated. See RemoveLayer for an example:

Re: Dark Mode in macOS Mojave

Thanks for the info! You can also opt out of dark mode for QCAD only in it's Info.plist file (QCAD-Pro.app/Contents/Info.plist): Add these two lines to the bottom (before "</dict>"): <key>NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance</key> <string>YES</string> This will be added in the next release of QCAD (until ...

Re: Exploded Block will switch to original Layer

For the explode tool the layer the block reference was inserted to is irrelevant ("layer 1" in your example). The crucial thing to realize is that every entity (even one residing inside a block) is on a layer (see also Layers, Blocks and Colors ). In your example, all lines of block "Magnetventil sc...

Re: Create .txt file

I was following this discussion: https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=614&p=1788&hilit=write+txt#p1788 That thread refers to QCAD 2 with its QSA script interface (obsolete). Our github repository is a good source for current / up to date scripts: https://github.com/qcad/qcad/tree/master...

Re: Exploded Block will switch to original Layer

I'm assuming your file contains a block which contains entities on layer "0". These entities have their attributes set to "By Block". Your drawing then contains a block reference on layer "Hidden" with attributes "By Layer". If that's not correct, please attach your file. When your block reference i...

Re: How to create page title block in viewport

I'll walk you through the first layout block. Please follow these instructions very carefully, step by step: 1. Block > Add Layout Block 2. Enter a name 3. OK -> You should now have created a new layout block successfully. It should show up in the block list under the name you've chosen. Let's add a...

Re: Cant get layout to show so I can print

I cannot reproduce this problem here. How do you go about adding a new layout block? Did you follow https://qcad.org/en/tutorial-working-with-layout-blocks-and-viewports#Creating_Layouts and the user manual it refers to, so Block > Add Layout Block ? I did the viewport, yet it only allows me 2 viewp...

Re: How to create page title block in viewport

Again, the tutorial should have you covered:
https://qcad.org/en/tutorial-working-wi ... -viewports

I.e. you'd typically add your border to the layout block.

I'm using the QCAD release named qcad-3.21.3-pro-osx-10.10-10.13.dmg
Is there any newer release?
No - same package here.

Re: Dark Mode in macOS Mojave

Strangely that's not the case here. Looks like it's trying to switch parts of the UI to dark on your system. Which exact package (DMG file name) did you install?

Re: Dark Mode in macOS Mojave

QCAD looks exactly the same in light or dark mode (apart from the menus).

Can you include steps to reproduce, screenshots, etc.?

Re: Cant get layout to show so I can print

You could create a new layout for each part of the drawing you want to print separately (see Tutorial: Working with Layout Blocks and Viewports -> Creating Layouts ). You'd then create one viewport per layout which displays the part you want to print for that layout. You might want to have a look at...
