#420 Add a polar array capability to Librecad

master branch
polar array (1)

I have been able to create a linear array by using the Modify-move/copy command but need a polar array feature added to, for example, put minute markings around a circle as in a creating a clock face. If such a feature already exists, I am not aware of it by combing through the Librecad menus and searching the Internet extensively.

    there's a similar feature within "Rotate" in parallel with "Move/Copy"

    this is not a bug is a feature request and it seems a good idea to add a command array (polar and rectangular).

    At the moment to create a polar array:
    draw a circle (clock contour), draw a line in angle 0 ( 3 o'clock)
    "modify->move and rotate"
    select line to move and rotate,
    as "reference point" and "target point" select center of circle (no move)
    In dialog set "multiple copies" to 11 an angle to 30
    click in OK and a clock with a line in hours are made.

    You can do more sophisticated polar matrices with the command "modify->rotate two"
