Snapshot 3.21.3.14 download?

It was announced here: https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=16&p=22411#p22411 I went to the customer area and followed the snapshot download link, but there's nothing to download. Was it pulled? Figured I might as well get the absolute latest version before my entitlement expires on Christma...

Re: Shortcut key to close print preview?

Ctrl+Q quits QCAD, but Ctrl+Shift+P does in fact toggle Print Preview, not just activate it.

Thanks.

Shortcut key to close print preview?

Is there a way to close Print Preview with the keyboard? I haven't found one, but I may be overlooking it. If it doesn't conflict with something else, Esc would be nice.

QCAD 3.21.3.0 on Xubuntu 16.04, 64-bit, if it matters

Thanks.

Re: Status bar visibility

I agree - A smaller status bar option would be nice in some circumstances

Re: QCAD crashes on save

0xc0000005 is an access violation, which could have multiple root causes (null pointer, etc., but I suspect Andrew would never leave a null pointer hanging :lol: ). I've seen where resetting the pagefile has fixed similar issues when physical memory was low, apps were swapping a lot and the pagefile...

Re: New look to website?

When viewing the site in English, the reference manual link points to the German version: https://www.qcad.org/doc/qcad/latest/reference/de/ All the other links appear to point to the 'en' locale.

However all in all it seems to be clear and well laid-out.

Re: Removing the Trial Add-Ons

The original post by Andrew shows what files to delete from the plugins folder (in your QCAD installation folder). You didn't indicate what operating system you're running, since they'll be in different places. I'm on Xubuntu Linux and installed it under /opt/QCAD, so I deleted (initially just moved...

Re: Line weight is too heavy in paper space print preview

Will I be embarrassed when Husky points out some simple setting I overlooked (probably!). :lol: Nope - you can plea "Not guilty". :wink: You stepped in the same "trap" like me.

Line weight is too heavy in paper space print preview

I'm probably missing something, but this very same file was OK last time I opened it. :wink: I have a drawing (Site layout.dwg) with a viewport, title block, etc., and last time I printed, it was fine. Now when I open Print Preview in Paper Space (only) the lineweights are off the scale: http://page...

Re: creating a shortcut in Linux Mint for qcad

MATE is a Gnome derivative, right? If so, you'll need to use Alacarte, MenuLibre or another menu editor to get it into the menus. It's been a while since I used MATE, so I can't remember if there's a 'start button' (sorry!) right-click shortcut to it nor not. On the desktop, I believe you can right-...

Re: how do I draw tapering latitudinal lines on a globe ?

As a QCAD newbie, I hesitate to even ask and possibly add to the confusion, but... solo, are you referring to arcs whose thickness tapers off toward each end, as if they recede into the distance? In other words, where nearest to the eye, the arc appears X units thick but tapers to a fraction of X be...

Re: User Template Border HOwTo

Yep, I figured out 1 through 6. And you understood correctly what I was asking: If I move entities in model space and they're also in a viewport in paper space, they'll move there, too (just the geometry, not the viewport). So there's no way to 'anchor' them to a viewport in paper space while allowi...

Re: User Template Border HOwTo

I don't know what I (thought I) saw last night, but scaling within a viewport works exactly right (i.e., 'zoom' changes don't affect real dimensions). I obviously misread something in my haste. One other question: Is it possible to lock geometry in respect to a viewport (or vice-versa, as the case m...
