Re: SVG export ignores polyline width

I cannot reproduce this problem. Please make sure that the option "Preserve Geometry" is disabled in the export options ( File > Advanced SVG Export ). With "Preserve Geometry" on, the focus is on getting the geometry / coordinates of the defining data across. With "Preserve Geometry" off, the prese...

I am unable to open the qcad-bin executable file.
The startup script is called "qcad", not "qcad-bin".

Re: AutoCAD dwg opening but not visible in QCAD 3.23

It looks like there are some huge elements and the drawing might be tiny due to auto zooming.
If you attach the DXF / DWG file, I can tell you more.

Does Qcad rely on the turncated numbers?
No, that's just the output of the object's toString() method.

What is the user name you've chosen? I cannot find a user under "52buickman" or your e-mail address.

Is there any way to control the background color in an SVG export?
No, this is not currently supported (i.e. the background is always transparent).

Re: New nesting tool ...

Yes, I can see that that will probably not work. Please understand that a nesting tool is not a puzzle-solver. It proceeds more or less at random (insertion orders based on size with random variations, random angles, best position according to alignment), improving always the best fit to increase th...

Re: Exploding text & splines

This depends a lot on the font and how it was constructed / what type of geometry it contains. In App Pref...

Re: Using dwg2maptiles how can I make the images generated have no whitespace around the outside

Map tiles are by definition squares. If your drawing is not square shaped (i.e. same height as width), there will always be margins either at the sides or at the top / bottom.

Re: New nesting tool ...

Could it be that you are selecting the sheet as well as the parts? It looks like it in the screenshots. That would mean that the sheet is also a part. It would certainly explain the 1 non-placeable part ;) When doing that, I can reproduce the weird alignment. Let's just say in that case the behavior...
