What is the difference between free QCAD and Pro QCAD?

Do you have a question you want to ask an existing QCAD user about QCAD and what you can do with it? Do you want to know if a particular feature exists? This is the place to ask.

What are the differences between the free and pay versions of QCAD?

For example:

Can drawings be saved? If so in what format?

Are there feature limitations?

What advantages does the pay version have over the free version?

Thanks

For me? A lot!!! For you? I don't know - that is something what you have to figure out by yourself. Maybe you need the Pro feature, maybe not. The best way to figure that out is to get the Trial / Community Edition and work with it. :wink:
Work smart, not hard: QCad Pro

If a thread is considered as "solved" please change the title of the first post to "[solved] Title...". Thanks!

Zebulon,

For me personally this is a 'no brainer' - for the low cost investment for the pro version, the return you get back is absolutely superb, whether you intend to use QCAD for private work or indeed commercial work!
For the best support please state your operating system, QCAD version and add any supporting DXF/DWG files, screenshots etc...
