Re: Scale in pdfs slightly wrong

When you print 1:50 and the original is 1.69m then the print should be 3,38 cm; if it was 1.60m it would be 3.20 cm - so you have a deviation of 1.8 mm; that is fairly small, in my view, not noticeable with the eye, if both lines are not close to one another. I have one idea, why lines would be long...

Re: Special OpenFile and Special NewFile needed

Hello blumi, what you describe can be done with custom scripts. A good place to start is the tutorial section of the reference documentation here - http://www.qcad.org/doc/qcad/latest/developer/_menus_and_tool_bars.html When you have your menu up you can tweak the "action" to do your things: open di...

Re: Anyone for Spirals ?

Out of curiosity I could not let this rest. So here comes a take at a spiral with less entities. Its created as a polyline, and as such it can always turn out an approximation only. You can see after exploding into arcs, that end angles and start angles of consecutive arcs do not match. The first ar...

Re: Anyone for Spirals ?

Actually, the equi-distant spiral above is the one from inkscape; the source thereof has so much boileplate though, it is unreadable; possibly the uniconvertor spiral is easier - http://sourcecodebrowser.com/python-uniconvertor/1.1.4/create__spiral_8py_source.html - it also creates beziers, but I ca...

Re: Anyone for Spirals ?

There is a Spiral in expample scripts Math, I was not satisfied with that one: it creates lots and lots of straight lines. Unfortunately I lost the (probably javascript to render as svg) the script that got me this one below: actually very much like a coiled up hose or such.

Re: ECMAScript manual

In addition to the API document, I have also found the built in debugger quite useful. Enable with a command line argument and trigger from your code with a statement. From a side panel I could drill through and see the available methods and fields in objects. Only useful, as long as the names speak...

Re: Qcad and Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon

To download the installer, you might have to right-click on the download button and choose 'Save as' or similar. You do not want your browser to display the installer - you want to download the file to disk. I clicked there in the shop, "https://www.ribbonsoft.com/shop/download/[…]/qcad-3.6.0-pro-l...

Re: How do i close a file

1)I would like to be able to close the current file/drawing using a keyboard shortcut. Control W is shown on the drop down menu, but if I press control W, nothing happens. I note that if I run it from a bash terminal , it says 'Warning: QAction::eventFilter: Ambiguous shortcut overload: Ctrl+W". Do...

Re: Is it possible to make custom properties read-only

You could put the data that you want to hide from the users below a different APPID than the one users are to modify themselves, so there is at least some visual separation.

Re: Is it possible to make custom properties read-only

Not an authoritative answer, but I studied xdata in the dxf spec and there is no such flag there. As dxf is the standard file format in qcad such a feature would require a proprietary extension.

Re: ? [solved] Add custom property in library item script

Hello Spatz, I copied the script to the library and can see the I-beam in the browser, but I cannot put it into a drawing. What else would I have to do for that?

Fun optical chimaera

Recently, the Feynman Lectures on Physics became free to read on the web. In the chapter on the eye - http://feynmanlectures.caltech.edu/I_36.html#Ch36-F1 - there is mention of an illusion. I had to give it a try, and QCAD is my tool of choice for such drawings: Although they are not strictly CAD, i...

Re: Some questions before buying

I wanted to recommend snapperpendicular to lengthen a line to where it would intersect with another one by means of the mouse. I use this a lot myself via auto-snap. In a quick test, I learned though, that snapperpendicular does not work this way. That is, it does when both lines are at a right angl...
