Print Preview / not plottable

Post by Husky » Fri Dec 29, 2017 7:47 pm


the new feature in QCAD Pro to make a layer plottable or not is magnificent! Thank you for that!

The only additional thing what I would like to see is that a "not plottable" layer isn't shown in the Print Preview. It is in my eyes confusing because that isn't the correct Print Preview - the physical print looks different. :wink:

Yes, "print preview" is not really the accurate term but more common than the accurate term "layout". The QCAD "print preview" is really a "layout". In the interest of compatibility with other CAD systems, non-plottable layers are indeed shown in the layout.
