The reply from the CUPS mail list: I am going to guess that the version of CUPS that you are running was built with '--with-printcap=/var/run/cups/printcap'. I don't know why you would have an /etc/printcap that is older, unless you had upgraded from an older version that was built '--with-printcap=...

Thanks for the tip. Any idea why restarting cupsd doesn't regenerate this file? The header in this file says that's the way it is created. I'll pass this on to the CUPS maintainers. Maybe they'll fix it.

Block insertion

When inserting a block or when a block is selected, the + and - keys rotate it a preset amount that is set in drawing preferences.

Thanks for a great program,

Not sure if we are on the same page. Andrew, I think he might have been thinking of a context sensitive menu where you could select a to have properties dialog appear. But, that might be the same as the widget you already have. He may like to have it go away when he's through with it, releasing scr...

Arc Tangential to Base Entity will not take end angle

I specify the entity, the radius and try to put in a relative angle on the command line, i.e.; degrees of arc, and it will not finish the arc. I press the space bar and enter @2.5 for 2.5 degrees. What am I doing wrong?

QCAD 2.1.3.2 quits when help is selected

I finally figured it out! When QT Assistant is run, it looks in your HOME directory for a dir named .assistant. If found it uses it. If not, it creates it. The contents of my old .assistant directory as follows: contentdb40.QCad indexdb40.dict.QCad indexdb40.QCad contentdb.QCadManual indexdb40.doc.Q...

QCAD 2.1.3.2 quits when help is selected

Selecting help from the menu or pressing F1 makes QCAD quit.

Click and drag text not working

Release 2.1.2.8 of QCAD has a lot of nice improvements. Thanks!
Click and drag of text does not move the text.
I can select the text and use the edit function to move it.
May be a bug?
