draw circleCR keyboard commands

Post by Carolus » Sat Apr 25, 2020 10:49 am

Linux MINT 19.2, QCAD

Versie:
3.24.3.0 (3.24.3)
Internet:
QCAD.org
Aanmaakdatum:
Mar 17 2020
Revision:
a3bef72
Qt Versie:
5.8.0
Architectuur:
x86_64
Compiler:
gcc 4.8.1

Drawing a circle from center radius goes fine by mouse. But when switching to keyboard input the prompt is "position". After typing the position of the center the promt stays "position" and that stays so without drawing the desired circle. I installed the newest version after finding this error in an older one too.

The tool needs information from the option bar AND the command line to draw the desired circle.

The input chain in Windows would be ...

command line,
cr [launch the tool],
ctrl space [focus option bar],
100 [value for radius],
return [will confirm values in option bar],
space [focus Command Line],
0;0 [position absolute zero],
return [cirle drawn],

The prompt "Position" will stay because it is waiting for the next circle ...
