Hi everyone, I'm super new to LibreCAD (started using it yesterday) and I've come across a bug, that I don't know a way around. I'll explain how it happens step by step:
So first I put aligned dimensions into my documet and explode them. Then I copy these dimensions. In the copy (not in the original though) the arrowheads of the dimensions get connected to the reference point I set for copying via a thick black line. This happens to all the arrowheads in my document and I can only remove these lines by deleting the whole arrowhead. I've attached some images to show you what I mean.
Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks
Thanks for your answer. I explode the dimensions because I want to make the extension lines dashed instead of continuous, and I don't know another way to do it (I couldn't find an option for that under 'Current drawing preferences -> dimensions'). And I want to copy them, because I made two drawings which I want to combine into one drawing now, as that is much more practical for my purpose.
If you know another way to do those things, I'd be happy to know.
For the dashed extension lines, there is no setting in LibreCAD. I don't know any standard which defines extension line as dashed lines and also no code in DXF definition I think. This would be the reason, that there is no option for it.
Your work flow is the only way for what you want, I have no other idea for this.
Is there a valuable reason for this non standard dimensions?
As a workaround you could set the extension line length to zero and draw them manually.
Or try with a tick instead of an arrow. These queer artifacts might come from the solid filling of the arrows. I haven't tested.
