Re: How do I extend line and keep the same angle?

Funny, I was looking at the neighbors cat as it was doing it's business on my property... wondering what I could use it's fur for.... so, so many things.

Re: How do I extend line and keep the same angle?

I just also found out, that the "Relative Angle" tool could also be used. Yes, but that will create another line rather than extending. I tried to move an endpoint. Left click the endpoint of line and drag somewhere. Unclick. Then spacebar to command line. Asks for Target point of reference point. ...

Re: begin line relative to point

Why not draw the new line beginning at initial reference point, then MV to a point that is relative to that point? (perhaps a little less cumbersome to moving relative zero)

Re: moving objects with keeping one coordinate as is

Panchdara, The command line is indeed the best practice with single inputs. :!: MV is great in moving items in a set. And I quote what I stated above: "Using MV I don't think you can explicitly "anchor" any particular point, but only move the entity(ies) either to absolute reference point or to a r...

Re: moving objects with keeping one coordinate as is

Hi Christoph, A couple ways I think. Using MV I don't think you can explicitly "anchor" any particular point, but only move the entity(ies) either to absolute reference point or to a relative reference point. Use @ in command line for a relative point, using 0 as X or Y to keep that axis same value....

Re: [Answered] Perimeter of an ellipse

Yes, thanks Andrew. Number of iterations? Or is that dependent on particular setup/specifics of the drawing (such as ellipse ratio)? (I think if I tried to read the code, it'd be like looking for a needle in a haystack :D ) I am just curious as I had just watched an entertaining video on the subject...

[Answered] Perimeter of an ellipse

Question: I just watched a neat video on the perimeter length of an ellipse. What formula/approximation does QCAD use?

Attached is one of the files I was working on. It is only 38 KB in size.
Was this file saved from ACad > 2016? Won't open in ACad 2016 but works fine in QCAD 3.24.3.10/Win 10

Edit: what application was this file saved from?

Re: Green Coordinate Text ?

Nice! However must move the pointer to see update as just pressing F8 will not change display until pointer moved. (A suggestion?)

Re: Move command

A couple ways to move entity(ies) by selecting and "gripping" to move. (You can also use the MOVE/COPY MV command) If you have selected one or more entities you can move an individual node (and move/extend/contract the attached selected entity(ies)). That is if you actually select the node - select ...

Re: Hi from Scotland

Bob, welcome. I am so envious of you getting the plasma table. Plenty of guinea pigs here. :lol:

Seriously - best forum, best advice, best place to discover QCAD. QCAD has probably the best support I've ever seen.

Very best
