No, the absolute zero is by definition not movable. However, you can move the whole drawing which gives you the effect you most likely expect: - Make sure all layers are visible - Select > Select All - Modify > Move / Copy - Set reference point at new position of absolute zero point - Click the curr...

Re: Areas

1. When drawing a polygon; let's say a rectangle, will I be able to establish the lines measurements? Yes, you would usually do that with the dimensioning tool. Dimensions are drawing elements that show for examples the length of a line. See also: http://www.ribbonsoft.com/qcad/manual_reference/cha...

I ran ldd qcad but I am not sure what the results are telling me. Jim Looks like the permissions of the binary...

Step by step: 1. move mouse cursor close to an entity 2. click left mouse button (quickly press and release the left mouse button without moving the mouse) entity is now selected and blue s...

Re: Newbie Question: Can't Delete Lines

Greetings. I installed v2.0.5 QCAD Community last week & am trying to figure out how to make it work. I made a couple of lines & tried to delete them but am unable to do so. I followed the manual from the help tab but, when I click edit, then delete, the arrow cursor becomes a square with crosshair...

Re: Install problem under linux

You can safely comment that part out, it is only used for debugging. Hi, I have just downloaded vec2web, set QTDIR and started the build script. However, when building libqcad I got: ../include/rs_math.h:90: warning: unused parameter ‘ok’ engine/rs_entity.cpp: In function ‘std::ostream& operator<<(s...

Re: Can't Edit Block (not visible)

This FAQ entry might answer your question: http://www.ribbonsoft.com/qcad_doc_faq.html#20 I have a drawing with several blocks, and it seems I can only see the block in the block edit window if ALL my layers are visible in the main drawing, even if I can see the blocks on the main drawing. I spent a...

Re: Editing Splines

Yes, you can select the spline and then drag and drop the small blue dots which are the nodes you clicked to create the spline first.

Re: How do I know the dimensions of a line, box circle as I

You might want to enable the preferences widget (QCad Professional) to get more information about one or more selected entities. While drawing, you can enter coordinates ("snap to coordinate" function in QCad Pro or enter coordinate "x,y" or "@x,y" (relative) in command line). Note that QCad is not ...

No, that is a misunderstanding. Professional releases and Community releases are not synchronized in any way. Note that the development of QCad depends entirely on Professional licenses being sold. Without the Professional version there would not be a community version either. Maybe I didn't ask my ...

Re: Can I run community edition in osx?

I'm afraid but compiling sources is usually not the best solution for new users. In a nutshell, you will have to install XCode, download / compile Qt 3.3.x, set up the QTDIR environment variable, download the QCad sources and run scripts/build_qcad.sh. Very, very new to mac. I like very much what I ...

Re: Dimensions and Measurements

Will any of the tools for drawing text or putting dimensions on drawings from the scripting language be available as standard any time soon? Probably not real soon. The scripting engine that QCad uses (QSA from TrollTech) has been dropped as a product. It will take some time to port the existing sc...
