Re: Layer line type only continuous

As we are installing from sources on Gentoo, I got this issue fixed by installing linetypes and themes directories.

[solved] Layer line type only continuous

Running the recent Version 3.21.2.0 (3.21.2)
Creating a new file and changing the layer line type I can only select continuous. Where are all the other line types?

Choose "overwrite blocks" when pasting.
Where do I find that? I search in Edit->Insert or in the application settings.

[FeatureRequest] Include shared blocks and layers

Hi, is there any way or plan to support shared blocks and layers and including that in the drawings? I start one drawing with most blocks and layers, later I copy lot of blocks into new drawings. Later it is very difficult to have all used blocks and layers synchronized over the drawings. Even copyi...

Re: Some detached widgets not possible to hide

Then what is also confusing:

Hiding the main window does hide Layers and Log widget, but does not hide the tool matrix, the layer list and the blocklist.

Some detached widgets not possible to hide

Hello, I have built QCad on Linux, running in a Xfce window manager. As QCad has no multiscreen support and does not support detaching tabs (https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=4741), I detached all widgets from the main windows and stacked those widgets on a separate screen, having on...

[FeatureRequest] Rotate the view

Hi, I would appreciate the possibility to rotate the view for working in a different angle on the same drawing. For instance I'm adding a lot of text to circuit layout plans, often in upright position , would be easier to edit in 90° rotated instead of inclining the head all the time. This could be ...

Re: Font style for layers

That pro feature doesn't have any benefit as I already have specific layer for fonts only, so can select all the fonts of that layer for consistent formatting.

[FeatureRequest] Font style for layers

Hi, is it possible to add the font style to the layer? Actually having another attribute of every layer defining the font style would be very helpful to have a specific font size, style and font type for a layer. Is there any other way to apply consistent font styles to object, if not modifying the ...

Re: Reference points for circuit plans

massimo wrote:* Drawing the lines in the correct order and position: Here the problem is that the connecting wire as a line is not one single object. I would need to make blocks of each wire for hiding the single wire.
Ok, at least this one can be achieved with a poly-line.

[FeatureRequest] Reference points for circuit plans

Hi, I'm going to create a circuit plan with QCad. For the wiring from a terminal A to a terminal B I don't like to draw all single lines, as the crossing and curving lines logically are not important. So I was guessing about a feature, that I can't find. Is there a way to have reference points, like...

Saved file while inside a block editing dropped rest

Hi, I saved a file last time while being inside a block editing. Next load I only see the block itself, the rest of the drawing is gone. The saved blocks are all there but not the drawing itself. I tried leaving block editing but that was not block editing ongoing. Now I can't reproduce this issue, ...

Including and creating libraries, including shared files

Hi, I have several files using the same blocks. Usually I just copy the blocks from file to file and that way I get all blocks and layers to the next file. But the disadvantage is, that I can't centrally modify the shared blocks. So I thought about creating a library. But that would mean I would nee...

How to change menu bar font size?

Hi, I don't run a Qt window manager such as KDE, but Xfce. How can I change the menu font and font size of QCad? Looking at ldd it's build on Qt5, and while Qt5 has dropped the qtconfig of Qt4 which many people already complained about, I also tried the 3rd party tool qt5ct, but changing the fonts t...

Re: No visibility icons on block or layer list

Ok, but I meant you provide your own Qt with the package and not dynamically linking to system provided Qt in /usr/share?
