hi Jasleen,

First, we don't really have a manual for usage or development. There's some sketching information in the wiki, please feel free to add your knowledge there.

You can always ask technical questions here, and we will try to help.

Have fun with LC hacking!

As for as I understand, LibreCAD is extended from QCAD. See if you can take advantage from:

That documentation doesn't match.

LibreCAD was taken from the QCad 2 branch, not 3.0.

Hi,

I am currently writing a basic user manual for LibreCad. My background is that I was a certified C3P trainer when I worked at Ford Motor Co. We wrote our own training manual for the courses we taught. What I am writing is a basic manual from a teaching stand point. I have noticed also that a number of commands in LibreCad mirror those in C3P. I have written some of the manual already if you want to take a look. Tell me how to upload it to you.

Thanks,
Bob

Hi,

There are several ways.

1, you can fork the official repository, add files, and send a pull request.

https://help.github.com/articles/fork-a-repo

2, you can start a feature request with attached file(s).

https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?atid=1433847&group_id=342582

3, last, you may choose to email the file(s) to me or other developers (Rallaz, or Ries).
