How to set the length of side of a polygon?

Post by fang_h_y » Sat Jul 14, 2018 10:33 am

Hello, andrew

In the AutoCAD we use a circumscribed circle or an inscribed circle to set the size of the polygon. I find that I cannot set the side length of a polygon. If I set the every side, then I need to spell every side to a whole polygon. I think there is a way to set the polygon side length only set one time. Can you teach me how to set the side length of a polygon?

Look forward to your reply.

Assuming you are referring to regular polygons, the regular polygon tools are documented at:
http://qcad.org/doc/qcad/latest/referen ... CP_en.html
http://qcad.org/doc/qcad/latest/referen ... PP_en.html
http://qcad.org/doc/qcad/latest/referen ... CP_en.html

To define one side length, the second seems most appropriate.
