Re: How do I add a font?

Andrew. I got it. Thanks very much.

I thought I had to (somehow) PUT that font into the QCAD font list.

I found a download link for the font, grabbed it, then double clicked on it and the Mac asks if I want to install it. Launched QCAD and it's in the font list. :)

[solved] How do I add a font?

I want to add Futura Condensed.

Is that possible, or do I have to find a substitute from the available fonts?

Re: Pasting from one Qcad drawing into another

I copied and pasted the dial markings into the control panel, trying to put it on layer 1. Making progress, I have them on layer 1. Clicking on the dim eye for layer 1 hides all layers. Should hide layer 1 only? Using the layer tool up at the top >show active layer, hides layer 0, which shows me the...

Re: Pasting from one Qcad drawing into another

Ok, I moved the drawing while it was still metric, to get it close to 0.0 without zooming in and out, then I converted to inch and moved the rest of the way.

Re: Pasting from one Qcad drawing into another

I have attached the two files. Why does one have a tilde character at the start?

Pasting from one Qcad drawing into another

QcadPro 3.13.1 for Mac 10.6.8 I am not from the CAD world, so please excuse some of these questions. I have a drawing of the control panel for the laser cutter, now I want to add text and dial markings for the laser engraver. The dial markings are on a PDF, then converted to DXF using pdf2CAD. 1) I ...

Re: R27 output files invisible

I'm used to clicking on a line to see its length.

Not used to having a dimension tool.

I have the book on order.

Re: R27 output files invisible

I don't understand the logic regarding metric vs Imperial. What's the purpose of the Drawing Unit dialog box if you have to enter a conversion factor?

I clicked on the outline of the part, then Modify>Scale>1/25.4, and the outline of my part disappears.

Re: R27 output files invisible

Andrew: The question was, why can't I see the file in the A360 viewer, when saved as R27? I upgraded to the Pro version and thought I would be able to see my files when saved as R27. I can see it in the A360 viewer when saved as R15. Qcad gives a warning that all black entities will be saved as whit...

Re: R27 output files invisible

Would it help if I opened the DXF files as text and pasted them here?

R27 output files invisible

Mac OSX10.6.8 1) I upgraded to the Pro version a few days ago but my R27 output files are still invisible. I have to use R15 format to see them in the A360 viewer. I sent the files to a laser house, they were asking about the white circles... 2) Also, the drawings open up in metric, even though I se...

Re: A360 viewer shows arcs not connected to lines

Andrew: Thanks for the sanity check. And thanks for Qcad. I am planning on having the panels laser cut from 0.040 aluminum. This is my first laser job, so I am not familiar with the requirements. I know the laser would blow through that, but will their software allow it? Please teach me how to draw ...
