Re: Agonizingly Slow Redraw

Is it possible for you to attach the drawing file in question ? I had to check on this. (I think I've run into this situation before, with this same data, but I don't remember where - maybe even here.) While the data is originally from the county, it has a lot of markings done by the survey firm th...

Including a "live" copy of an object

If this is possible, I suspect there's a term for it and I have no idea what it is. I'm doing plans of a deck to add to my barn, so I can easily haul things up to the deck with a simple hoist and move them into the loft. I have side and front elevations of just the deck for the specs. This includes ...

Agonizingly Slow Redraw

I'm using macOS, QCAD PRo 3.24.3.0 (3.24.3). I have a plat of my property that came from a survey firm I hired. I've added a Layout Block and two viewports so I can easily print out an overall view of my property with an insert (made from a 2nd viewport) showing a closeup of the area where I'm doing...

Re: Keeping Dimension Measurements the Same When Resizing Drawings

Thank you! I'm working in spurts - I get a day or two to work on my plans for our renovation projects and on things like this, then a while when I can't touch it, so I'll be working on this, but it'll be a while until I can finish it. I did try this form the command line and it worked fine. It's jus...

Re: Keeping Dimension Measurements the Same When Resizing Drawings

Just started looking at the JavaScript API and scripting information. Would it be possible to write a plugin that would let you store the desired order of Layouts in a project within the project file, then, when called, print them all in order (or use that same order to create a PDF document with al...

Re: Keeping Dimension Measurements the Same When Resizing Drawings

Is there any way to enlarge a drawing and keep the measurements the same? Yes, for example by using a viewport: https://qcad.org/en/tutorial-working-with-layout-blocks-and-viewports Wow! I had no idea this could be done at all! (Hey, when you're self-taught and most of your time with a program is o...

Keeping Dimension Measurements the Same When Resizing Drawings

This is a followup to my other recent question ( https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=7322 ) Here is a drawing I did to scale: Screen Shot 2020-06-08 at 2.39.24 PM.png To get it to fit on my details page for when I submit it to the county's Plan Review, I needed to enlarge it so it was easy...

Re: Changing Font in Existing Dimension Objects

Thank you! I'll be doing that as soon as I can get back to my work.

For the record, in this case, I only want to change it for some of them - just the ones that are on drawings that I had to resize. I should have specified that in my question. Thank you for covering both cases!

Changing Font in Existing Dimension Objects [solved]

I hope I'm using the right terms here, if not, please correct me! I'm on macOS, using QCAD version 3.24.3.0 (3.24.3). I have made a number of measurements in several diagrams, but I've had to do some resizing so I could get detail drawings to print on the same page as some elevation views. (Otherwis...

Re: How to create your own Layer Standards ...

Thank you!

I'm glad it's so easy. I figured it was, but before I did it, I just wanted to double-check. Sometimes it's real easy to miss some small detail that's not as obvious as you'd think.

Yes - that is only available in Pro.
