That was just a reply from a spammer that was deleted before you reacted to the notification. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do to eliminate 100% of all spammers, a small portion always gets through and we simply delete those as quickly as possible. Thank you for the clarification. No proble...

The Book.

Hi Andrew, After putting the Qcad aside for a few weeks, I started reading the book from cover to cover This morning I reached chapter 6. I started using qcad for some diagrams for a book of mine, but now decided to do the right thing - read your book first, rather than keep on reinventing the wheel...

Hi, Andrew!
Are you one of the developers of QCAD community edition?
BTW, I have received the printed paper copy of QCAD book, but have not had the time to study it yet.

Talking of typos, it's "bated breath".
You are absolutely right! (and I do not promise to improve, either. :) )

Typos

Andrew, I have not yet received your book (that I have ordered together with the QCAD-pro), but I will use this forum to "nit-pick" the manual. The manual that is incorporated in the qcad-pro program, says that to view the Layer List one needs to enter: View - Views - Layer List This should read: Vi...

Hi, Where can I get the source of the qcad-demo, or community qcad? Do you have a source code for an earlier version of qcad? OldAl I withdraw my question - I have downloaded the source tarball from RibbonSoft for version 2.0.5.0. So this is not so far behind the most recent (2.2.2.0) version and i...

Installation

There was a request for more detail on installation by "impert" in a thread called "Installation on Ubuntu 7.10" in this forum. I thought that it would be a good idea to generalise the method of installation to include other Linux distributions. My own installation and testing was on an PC box with ...

Hi, I just paid for the qcad-pro + book. So far very satisfied with the software (book is on the way and will take some time to get here). Where can I get the source of the qcad-demo, or community qcad? Do you have a source code for an earlier version of qcad? I am revising my structural analysis bo...

In qcad pro what is the simplest way to 1. Change the size of arrows of a dimension; (It seems to be drawn in the scale of the object scale; Other CAD programs sometimes offer choice between paper plane and object plane fordimensions and title blocks,viz TurboCAD). 2.

Does a change of the grid do what you need? It may not be exactly what you are used to, but the impression I have is that this is one way to change the snap size. Am I totally on the wrong track?

A typing mistake

I just started the evaluation of QCAD. I am very impressed with what I see! (But I have not yet seen much :) ). No doubt in the help pages there are typos. An example: In section 6.8 Modes, paragraph "Normal Mode" second last line is: if in normal more, you can ... Of course, it should read: if in n...

Craig,

Stay with it, mate! You are quitting far too soon. QCAD may yet prove it it's worth. AFAIK it is the only truly multiplatform CAD package (and I am only trying it at the moment :) )
