[solved] When I paste object is rotated 90 degrees

Post by RogerRamjet » Tue Jun 15, 2021 5:20 pm

Newbie here...

When I copy an existing entity and then paste it, the entity is rotated 90 degrees and I don't know why.

I'm copying things from my drawing (call it Mine) into another drawing that came from someone else (call it Theirs).

When I paste the entity from Mine into Theirs, it is rotated 90 degrees.


Questions:
1. What am I doing wrong?
2. How do I fix it?
3. Where is a good tutorial that explains things that should be initialized when creating a new drawing?

Running QCAD ver 3.24.3 on Win10 Pro.
Drawing is a .dxf

TIA

Hi,
Have a look at your Options Toolbar:

Most methods initiate an Options Toolbar, so allways keep an eye open for those options. :wink:
