Re: Set min. line thickness when using dwg2pdf

Yes, the value is in drawing units, not paper units. 0.5mm in drawing units are wider when zoomed in.

This might change in a future version to define a minimum lineweight independent of the zoom level.

Re: Ignore objects not displayed by Autodesk TrueView

%% is usually used as escape code for the diameter symbol (%%c), degree symbol (%%d), plus/minus (%%p) or to toggle underlining (%%u). Apparently "%%" by itself should be rendered as nothing at all. This will be fixed for the next version. I'd also recommend to clean up these things in drawing files...

Re: Where is the source code of offset function?

If you are referring to the polyline offset tool, this is part of QCAD Professional and not open source. See also https://www.qcad.org/en/documentation/features

Re: Debug output

Assuming you're on Windows.

You'll have to stream the output to a file to view it:

Code: Select all

qcad.exe 1>log 2>&1
cat log
Windows applications cannot show a GUI and output to the console.

Re: Ignore objects not displayed by Autodesk TrueView

The text entity with contents "%%" is definitely present in the drawing file (see DXF below). Unfortunately, I wasn't able to identify why this should not be displayed so far. 0 TEXT 5 7F34 330 9B96 100 AcDbEntity 8 COTAS 62 3 420 65280 100 AcDbText 10 1175.635568191861 20 211.3370233749408 30 0.0 4...

The new function "layer status" works pretty well but after saving and reloading the drawing the shortcuts y1, y2 ... are not available.
I cannot reproduce.
Can you please outline the steps?
E.g.
- File > Load, File > Close, File > Load
or
- File > Load, File > Reload, etc.

Re: Use measured value to create a new element

I won't add the measuring functions to dialogs for now, but you can switch those tool to a mode in which they use the options toolbar instead of a dialog (see application preferences). Measuring tools are currently not available in combo boxes, only line edits. This is work in progress.. Replacing s...

Re: Grab values from text boxes created by a .ui file

In this case, you're talking about the options toolbar at the top, not a dialog:

Code: Select all

var optionsToolBar = EAction.getOptionsToolBar();
var lengthEdit = optionsToolBar.findChild("Length");
