Re: Circle becomes Polyline - when does it happen?

Hi. I guess you can't convert a poly back to a circle, but to find the center point, you could use Menu/Misc/Draw/Centerline (as described in a post recently). OR, you could select the circular poly and draw another circle (on a separate layer) based on 2 opposite points, then delete the original an...

Re: cannot find disruptions of outer contour

@Krischu Sorry, I use hatch to use as a tool to determine unclosed polys. I looked, read the screen, and determined the coordinates of the unclosed poly (in this particular case). I then moved one of the unclosed points to the intersection of the other point - then they worked. Which point to move i...

Re: cannot find disruptions of outer contour

Your error is highlighted me thinks But I can not see any discontinuity when I zoom in. How did you discover it? Or is yours the corrected version? 44.98 vs. 45 for the Y-Coordinate? Sorry for delay... yes, my version is corrected. I hunted. I tried hatch and found the unmatched coordinates. It was...

Re: Trim question

Thanks Husky. Absolutely sensible now that you have explained. I have made the same type of drawing issue, but taken the long road... now I have the shortcut.

Re: Trim question

@Husky... why would you not want to have the Remove Segment checkbox ticked? What is the purpose of not removing the segment? (And I'd never noticed that checkbox until you mentioned it).

Re: Command line no longer available

Hi wjhall. I've never experienced your particular issue with QCAD, however, I have had instances where the spacebar has failed on the keyboard (remember, it's probably the most used button on the keyboard. Can I first suggest swapping the keyboard out? Best

Re: Overlays

All makes sense now - there are too many smart hidden gems under the hood. Yes, the background is white - thus the switch does what it says. Refreshing the view as you assert is how to redraw the items. Not sure on the colour transparency (as I mentioned in the startpoint item)... looks like the "re...

Re: Overlays

Overlays might be useful (order certainly). However, there's some quirks: Order- change text colour doesn't work well. Change background to blue and the text colour is white (preferences) and the text remains black. Change text colour to cyan and it is now cyan - change from cyan to white and it is ...

Draw/Polyline/Polyline from Selection - not selected

When I select Draw/Polyline/Polyline from Selection and a polyline is created. The new Polyline is not selected. Can the newly created polyline be selected? Similarly, if I select several entities and those entities are on different layers, is the first listed layer (where one of the entities is on)...

Re: How do i select a line under a line?

Also - go a little up and to left of the 50mm line and select going right and down to select the entire 50mm line. This will only select the entity(s) that are fully enclosed in selection bounds - not selecting the 100mm line.

Active layer suggestion

I know that the active layer is shown with an icon representing a pencil. Open new drawing and layer 0 has the icon in that row and the layer has no blue/grey highlight. Add a new layer (Layer 1) and that layer is now selected (with pencil icon) and still no blue highlight background. Then select la...

Re: Add new layer - minor issue

Thanks Andrew. Yeah, the blue background threw me a sec then. I did notice the pencil icon. I'll keep that in mind. All good otherwise (from what I do use).
