Fixing drawings with huge entities in them

Post by andrew » Mon Sep 07, 2015 4:47 pm

It is possible to draw very large entities in QCAD. However, sometimes these entities are so large that the drawing can no longer be displayed properly due to value overflows. You will notice that this is the case if the values shown at the lower right bottom of the drawing area are huge or if you cannot pan or zoom properly.

To fix the problem, you can delete the very large entities as follows:
- View > Selection Filter
- Enter a selection filter for very large entities, for example:

- Click the button at the bottom left to select the very large entities
- Edit > Delete

- View > Auto zoom
