Re: Can circles round points be removed

Well found! I was relying on the Property Editor, which identified each item only as a point. I didn't think to zoom that far into a single point. Can you recommend the way ahead? Selection filter and delete all circles, hoping there aren't any circles which shouldn't be deleted, then start again wi...

Re: Can circles round points be removed

Three months ago this worked perfectly, but I've tried with the attached file the last two days to convert the 328 points to 0.75 mm radius circles, without success. I'd be very grateful for some help here.

Re: Can circles round points be removed

You've solved it, thank you. Highlighting the layer in blue did the trick. Thanks for sticking with me.

Re: Can circles round points be removed

That procedure works perfectly when I work from a new file. When I try the same with the actual file I need to modify, I get the dreaded message "Transaction failed. Please check for block recursions and locked or invisible layers or blocks." I've read the 18 hits from searching the forum for this e...

Re: Can circles round points be removed

Husky, that is excellent, and I'm most grateful for your efforts. The five stage instructions lack a line 2, which could be select "replace the current selection"in the box below .The Help facility and the Manual en3 do not mention this step in relation to "selection filter". On my screen the releva...

Re: Can circles round points be removed

I've just tried with 4 points in a square in a new file. I cannot get the points to change to circles.

Re: Can circles round points be removed

My attachment shows that as the active layer, unless I misunderstand the point. The layer list is on the right in the attachment.

Re: Can circles round points be removed

I'm grateful for the rapid response. That is the procedure I have been trying all afternoon with every combination I can imagine, and I have used the tutorial from the beginning, without success. I've attached a small section of the drawing, showing 15 points:

Can points be replaced by holes?

Windows 10, QCAD pro 3.22.0 The CNC shop now states that each point must be replaced by a 1.5 mm diameter hole, as a point is not a vector, and hence will not be recognised as a position for a drill bit.

Re: Can circles round points be removed

Husky, many thanks for the swift reply, which explains exactly the issue. The green points were added to my drawing by a friend in the USA, and then sent back to me for discussion. (He likes copper wire stitching, whereas I like super-glue). I tried to understand the issue via Help> Reference Manual...
