Thanks. Not really. I attached the diagram for idea purpose only. I find pasting images in construction drawings ugly. I want to paste calculations from LibreCalc into QCAD like the following attached .dxf. I can do it manually as posted in QCAD. Very Time consuming. I can paste Librecalc spreadsheets directly into Progecad, TurboCAD or AutoCad. All formatting sticks.

Nope - I'm not aware of this possibility in QCAD. :(
