[SOLVED] Suggestion to add a dimension label colour attribute

Post by petevick » Tue May 19, 2020 9:19 pm

I would like to make a suggestion for a future update of Qcad, to add a dimension label colour attribute to Drawing and Application preferences in Dimension Settings, also an additional field to be added for this attribute in the Property Editor. I find that having a different label colour is easier to read the dimension value when checking drawings on the screen. It could also make drawings printed in colour easier to read.
I have used both AutoCad and DraftSight extensively in the past, and more recently LibreCad, all these applications have the ability to set the dimension label colour separately to that of the dimension lines colour.

This has been implemented and will be included in the next snapshot release and possibly in the next stable release of QCAD Professional.
