Re: Spline > Append Fit Point (s)

Yes, launching from the context menu works pretty well.
Thank you.

Spline > Append Fit Point (s)

I took a look at snapshot 3.25.2.1 on macOS.
The change records speak of "Draw> Spline > Append Fit Point (s)".
When I try to attach a new fit point to a "spline with fit points" using the new tool, the tool stops responding and I cannot attach anything to anything.
What did I misunderstand?

Re: [SOLVED] Move a line by dragging one end

... or use the Move Tool (MV).
with it you can also select the start or end point and still move the entire line.
This can e.g. be important when 2 lines are to be connected without changing the length or orientation of the shifted line.

Re: Move a line by draging one end

Drag the line by clicking on the line NOT near start or endpoint..

Re: How do I extend line and keep the same angle?

In the past, working on a drawing board, you would have made an auxiliary circle from the top of the roof and then extend the edge of the roof to the point of intersection with the circle (hold the SHIFT key in QCAD). The auxiliary circle is then deleted again. Simple geometry that always works.

Re: dxf to pdf

I've added a second for-do-loop in the script:

for file in *.dwg
do
/Applications/QCAD-Pro.app/Contents/Resources/dwg2pdf -a -p A4 -f "$file"
done

With this dwg are also converted to pdf.

Re: dxf to pdf

Thanks again.
After some troubleshooting, I got the script to work.
I got stuck at your "./alldxf2pdf.sh".
It should read: "alldxf2pdf.sh".

Re: dxf to pdf

Many Thanks. The procedure works for me if I set the path manually in the terminal (cd) and then enter the program loop you mentioned ("for i = ...") in the terminal window. So far so good. Then I tried to create an executable shell script ("#! / Bin / sh" and "chmod 755" filename ") according to in...

[solved] dxf to pdf

QCAD 3.25.2 is running on my iMac with macOS Catalina (10.15.7).

I would like to convert all dxf in a folder to pdf via batch or script. How do I have to proceed under macOS?
Please step-by-step, as my Unix and script knowledge is only rudimentary.

Re: Flow Diagram - How do I connect two "valves" with a line, then drag them around, and they're still connected?

The question is how do you come from black to blue without drawing the lines again.

Other software like Microsoft Visio Pro has a built in routing tool (routing connections). Dragging and moving the valve redraws the lines automatically.
QCAD hasn't such a functionality.

Re: Flow Diagram - How do I connect two "valves" with a line, then drag them around, and they're still connected?

I'm afraid there are very limited options for this in QCAD. The only way I know and that I use for such cases is the "Stretch Tool (SS).

Re: Show one object in front of another

In CAD filling with a solid hatch to cover lines doesn't make sense.
The better way is to trim the lines (see tool D2)
