Trim AND Extend

jp willm
Bonjour,

How to extend lines in LibreCAD : I searched for a long time and found nothing

Today, I discover that Modify > Trim is able to Extend lines !
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gleSdd6msBs

Now, I ask : why this perfect tool is named "Trim" and not "Trim/Extend" ?

If the name had been "Trim/Extend", I would have found for a long time how to extend lines in LibreCAD

Is it possible to rename this icon in "Trim/Extend" ?

Many users would appreciate to know how to extend lines in LibreCAD

Hello

wonderful software. I'm using it currently in my designs.
Probably there are some tricks that I don't know yet.
I would suggest you some improvements.

1-The trim/extent command as the colleague mentioned above.
About trim command, please do the multiple selection. I don't know but it doesn't work inside this command.

2-I experienced some troubles moving/copying text. I'm using 2.2.0 alpha.

3-The possibility to use the window zoom inside a command.

4-Multiple style dimensions.

Thank you very much indeed
Wonderful work anyway.

Best Regards

Hello,

Thank you for your interesting email.

Yes, LibreCAD is a very good tool for 2D.

I used it a lot when I was still working, but not anymore, because I only draw in 3D.

FreeCAD has recently been equipped with a TechDraw workbench which allows you to easily export 3D objects to 2D views and add all kinds of dimensions.


Best Regards ,

Bon, mon but n'est pas de faire de la publicité pour FreeCAD sur le forum LibreCAD :-/

LibreCAD est excellent et incontournable dès lors que l'on veut faire des plans sérieux en 2D.
