correcting the scale of an object

Post by bromide1975 » Mon Nov 30, 2020 11:29 am

Hello,
Can anyone let me know if this action is possible please?
I want to import an svg file into QCAD and then, this is the important bit!! check that the scale is correct.
I believe that in autocad, a feature (line length or a radius for example) can be measured and, if not correct, the correct dimension for that feature can be input and the complete object re-scaled using that factor.
Is this possible in QCAD?
Thank you for any help,
Kind regards
Dave

I'd use Modify > Align Reference Points

Make sure you have a line at the correct length / position / angle and then align the whole selection / object to that line using the appropriate reference points.
