Imperial drawing sheet templates:
ANSI A / 28" x 11" Portrait,
ANSI A / 28" x 11" Landscape,
Hey - how nice is that!
With the new QCAD 3.3.0 release we have more and nicer possibility's to handle i.e. the entries in a title blocks or a revision block.
It's called "Block attributes" and that was a reason for me to update the Drawing sheet templates with this new feature of QCAD.

QCAD 3 - Video Tutorial (Q&E).
"Drawing sheet template with block attributes"
Long story short:
You will find in the .zip the same Drawing sheet templates as above but now with the new block attribute function.
So, then you're saying by inserting text manually in the block, not through use of the field, right? Also, I take it Standard if the font you've used for the rest of the text in the title block?
The reason I ask is that some applications have a special key sequence to insert a carriage return into a text string (spreadsheets for example) and I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something here.
If I try to insert and explode these, they seem to crash my QCAD 22.214.171.124.
I'm using a Mac. I did this:
Unzipped the directory, Did QCadPro/Preferences/Widgets/LibraryBrowser, Add unzipped file path
Closed and Restarted QCAD
LibraryBrowser/ Navigated to the folder, drug the "ANSI A" into modelspace and placed it at 0,0
TX (to select the block)
XP (to explode) -- QCAD crashes out.
I tried this with ANSI E and it also crashed.
I tried again with the libraries/templates/metric/din_a3_m_landscape.dxf template from the distribution and I was able to eXPlode it into components as expected.
I was attempting to explode these ANSI templates this to see if I could access and edit the attributes, since the attributes didn't seem to show up under the entire, unexploded block.
