Re: Scripts, missing icon

Please change the name of the toolbar in MyScripts.js / MyScripts.getToolBar() to "MyScriptsToolBar". I've also changed that in the online doc for consistency.

Re: Can't copy paste in same drawing!

This can have various reasons and without the drawing file(s), I can only do a wild guess... (hint: attach the drawing file).

Re: Remove all dimension entities

Ok thanks, so I think it's impossible to do that with command line ? Or to keep all layer expect layer with name X or Y ? Not out of the box. Using the QCAD script interface, you would have to create a command line tool that does that. See also: https://www.qcad.org/en/tutorial-command-line-tool-sc...

Re: Keeping Dimension Measurements the Same When Resizing Drawings

Layouts (layout blocks) already have an order. You can see / edit it when renaming a layout block. Yes, this is certainly possible. Below is some rough code. You'd still have to do the block iteration and decide how / if you want to auto fit to paper, etc. include("scripts/library.js") var storage =...
