Re: QCAD 2.2.2.0

Thanks Andrew, Tried it and worked like a charm. Thanks again. I don't use QCAD so often any more. I do clock dial design work for my son and then cut them in vinyl on a Graphtec cutter to be used as stencils. I pretty much use Inkscape exclusively for the design work but do use QCAD for line work s...

QCAD 2.2.2.0

I've had QCAD for 3 years or so. It's version 2.2.2.0 and running on Tiger and Snow Leopard. Somehow I've lost the original configuration of the screen layout as originally installed on 2 of my G4 laptops, running Tiger, and can't figure out how to get them back. I bought the disk and manual. I've t...

QCAD Font Scaling

I do use Inkscape to do the scaling. It's just for some things I do it would be easier to do it in QCAD first. Ultimately i f I do my drawing in QCAD I then export it as an SVG file and import it into Inkscape, size it and manipulate it then send it to a Graphtec cutter. It would be nice to be able ...

Text Scaling

I have a need to change text proportions(scale): for example keeping the height(h) but to change the width(w) to say 75% or less. The scale change does not work with the QCAD set of fonts. Also I've added many fonts to QCAD and it doesn't work with any of them either. The fonts sets I've added are t...

QCAD-Converting dxf file to work with Vinyl Cutter Plotters

I use QCAD to create clocks dial templates for my son. I want to buy a vinyl cutter plotter to plot and make the templates/stencils. A tech person from a local firm was unable to use the dxf file or the various exported files. He suggested using Corel Draw or Illustrator to create the dials. I like ...

Thanks for the prompt rely. That feature would be very helpful to me but I understand that it may be a lesser needed feature for CAD. I'll look into the ref. you cited.

Thank you

Rounded Text

Found a version 1.4.8 of QCAD user manual and noticed a completely different Text Window from ver. 2.2.2. This version allows for text spacing and rounded text. I have a need for this feature. I was able to do it but with much manipulation and hit or miss placements-very time consuming. Question-Is ...
