I'm sure you only have to 'read' the manual Stan! ;) :D

BTW, did you know that the expression 'RTFM' is banned on the Ubuntu forums?

Good to have you here! QCad is the bomb! 8)

OT- Solidworks to come to Mac OS X in 2008! (apparently)

Sorry for the OT, but I was told today by Solidworks (March, 2008) that Solidworks will announce this year that SW's has finally been ported to Mac OS X. This is great news for me (as a Solidworks user), but I think that this will also be great news to all those who use qCad on their Macs too- I've ...

Yes- I too was going to mention/ request this.
The new isometric tool is great, but nothing beats a proper grid :D

Yes this is true (for now). I'll have to ask for some change to C3D's SVG import standard ;) :D

I was not referring to lines as in CAD line entities but lines as in SVG line elements. Yes I know it was that you were referring to :) I know that both UGS and Solidworks have been working quite closely together now for a while with Apple (one result is that the former's flagship product NX has be...

Because I started this thread, I'll move over here (from; http://www.ribbonsoft.com/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=292&start=15) Opening up both SVG files (QCad, and Intaglio) reveals this; QCad; <?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?> <svg width="112mm" height="82mm" viewBox="0 0 112 82" version="1.1" xmln...

A little googling reveals that Cheetah only imports a small subset from SVG, namely only <path/> elements (or spline elements). It ignores all other elements, including lines. Andrew, I think you've missed the point- with the 'lines'; C3D actually does import lines very well. If I draw exactly the ...

2. SVG export is buggy :cry: I was really looking forward to that (even though I only found out yesterday!) I can somehow hardly imagine that. I'm using this here on a daily basis for a book I'm writing. May I ask in what context (with what type of application) you are using this? For exporting int...

Eureka!

Got it working.

It seems that you MUST use Stuffit Expander. I was using some other expander that I had set up because of stability problems with Stuffit.

Sorry for the false alarm folks :oops:

Andrew, I presume that the ini file is the same as a preference file?

I trashed the existing preference file, but that had little difference.

I'll throw away the existing build and download/ reinstall it again.

Really annoyingly though, QCad 2.1.6.4 works fine (or appears to anyway) in Windows XP SP2 (running in Bootcamp mode) :evil:

Why do us UNIX users always have to face humiliation?? :shock: :lol:

FWIW, I like the new interface/ look.

Now to see if the SVG function works or not.

Hi tj

Are you able to provide a crash log? As this would help Michael and Andrew debug the problem. :D
