Hatch dY (offset) limited

Post by CVH » Fri Jan 17, 2020 2:07 am

Andrew,

Could it be that somewhere in the Qcad core there is a limit on the
decimal digits for the dY (offset) section of a definition entry in a pattern file?

It seems I can not parse anything more precise as up to 12 decimal digits....

In an attempt to come close to:
https://www.hatchkit.com.au/faq.php
In detail the section about 'losing coherence'.

Thanks in advance,
CVH

QCAD uses the C++ "double" type for all floating point values.
