non-uniform scale

Giles Bathgate
Hello, the other day I needed to do a non-uniform scale (scale along x axis and leave y values alone)

I was disappointed to find on the following QCAD article

http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?p=4020&sid=71389bd0914ca5242a4475f66c902244

that non-uniform scaling was introduced after the latest QCAD Community Edition release.

I am not a big fan of companies who write free software and then decide to make closed source improvements to that software!

I would love libreCAD to implement some of the features that RibbonSoft have made secret.

This is one of them. (I think also pretty easy to implement aswell?)

Regards

Giles

Actually I would like to implement this myself.

I have logged a FR in sourceforge and I will send a merge request to github when I have developed a suitable patch.

Giles,

can you just us on IRC?
I know there is already one guy working on it : see https://github.com/dxli/LibreCAD/tree/scale2d

And I would hate to see double work.
