Many years ago, I was a fairly competent TurboCad user. Indeed, I even managed to submit, to the local authority, plans for a new staircase created in TurboCad (which were approved). I therefore don't consider myself too stupid..... However, page forward twenty years, I just can't get started with LibreCad (or Freecad for that matter). The basic methodology has obviously changed. I'm missing something very basic. All the tutorials seem to assume you're beyond the 'draw a line' stage. I can create a new file, click on "two points" and draw a line .. great! ...but that's where it ends. It won't let me draw another line. What am I missing?
is like many other tools in LibreCAD or any other CAD. Just click somewhere else in the drawing, and it draws a line, which startpoint is the endpoint of the previous line, and endpoint where you clicked. That continues, to cancel do a right click twice, in some cases three times
Thank you. I've had a quick look through the LibreCAD for Real Dummies but I still come up against the brick wall. I'll read it in some more detail to see if I've missed something.
I tried the right double click and triple click ... makes no difference. I can draw one line, then the only way to draw another is to restart the program. Of course, I have to have a new file, so I can only have one line again. I've tried saving my single line file. If I restart LibreCAD, and load my single line file, it still won't let me add another.
