Default Format on File Save

Post by jimbofoxman » Mon May 04, 2015 4:43 pm

Just started using this program. I see in the Application Preference there is a spot to set Default Save As Format, but I cannot select the drop down to change it. I would like to set the default export to JPG.

Side question to this is, is there a way to set up a default save size say 1600x1200?

Thanks

Jim

Could this be with the free community edition of QCAD? QCAD Professional should show a combo box with different versions of DWG / DXF.
The community edition only supports one file format (DXF 2000).

Note that File > Save As is not the same as File > Bitmap Export.
For bitmap export, default format and size cannot be configured at this point.

Yes, the free edition. Was referring to the bitmap export.
