“Zoom to selection” shows no effect on vertical and horizontal lines: Message: “No selection found”.

Recognizable at:
vertical lines, horizontal lines,
Rectangle, Rectangle with size,
Polygon Center Point, Polygon two corner (only in the case that you have vertical/horizontal lines),

Shapes as a polyline - no problem. ;-)

FS#1146: New circle tool: point + tangent + radius 2014-12-11T07:09:47Z 2014-12-11T07:09:47Z

Up to know it´s impossible to draw a circle by the given combination:

point, tangent and radius.

I would like this to be added to the circle options.

FS#1145: Closing inactive tab of a modified drawing: drawing file name mixup 2014-12-10T21:08:09Z 2014-12-10T19:39:59Z

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create new drawing and fill it with some contents that’s easy to distinguish, for example text “DRAWING 1”.
2. Save it as dr1.dxf
3. Close it
4. Open dr1.dxf
5. Edit it, for example change text from “DRAWING 1” to “DRAWING 2” 6. Save changed file as dr2.dxf
7. Close it
8. Open dr1.dxf (it should have content “DRAWING 1”)
9. Open dr2.dxf (it should have content “DRAWING 2”)
10. Close tab dr1.dxf
10.1 Qcad will ask you to save changes.
10.2 Press “Yes” –> nothing happens, dialog doesn’t disappear.
10.3 Press “Discard” –> dialog disappears, tab gets closed
10.4 Tab that has content of file dr2.dxf (”DRAWING 2”) remains open but gets title “dr1.dxf” (!)
11. Close tab
12. Press “Yes” in dialog that asks to save changes

1. Open dr1.dxf
2. Open dr2.dxf
As you can see, both files have equal contents (”DRAWING 2”)

Expected results:

1. Files have their own contents.
2. Dialogs asking to save files disappear when checking “Yes”, “Cancel” or “Discard” 3. Tabs don’t change titles and associated file names when other tabs are closed.

FS#1144: Commands history toolbar 2014-12-08T10:21:06Z 2014-12-08T10:21:06Z

A new toolbar that shows the last 5, 10 or so commands buttons used would be useful to do repeated tasks on a lot of drawings.

FS#1143: Polyline from selection 2014-12-08T10:46:40Z 2014-12-08T10:09:50Z


Would it be possible to add a new tool to create polylines from a selection?

FS#1142: Distance Entry in "Feet and Inches" 2014-12-10T21:33:02Z 2014-12-07T20:01:58Z

I use architectural units everyday in QCAD and would appreciate being able to enter feet and inches from the “command line” for convenience and accuracy.

I have been entering “calculations” to arrive at the distance values (i.e. 10*12+6.125 = 10’-6 1/8”), but this method is time consuming and prone to input error.

I would like to see Acad’s architectural distance method implemented in QCAD. This entry method would replace the “calculated” entry with (as an example): 10’6-1/8.

Command Line: Next point: 10’6-1/8
The <’> mark triggers a 12 times multiplier for the proceeding number,
the next number is the whole inches and
the ↔ is a separator that adds the fraction to the whole inches before it.

Thanks for considering this feature request. I’m certain that many QCAD users in the Architectural, Mechanical, Electrical and Construction professions wold appreciate this convenience (especially those moving past Acad).

FS#1141: Split command on Ellipse and Spline curve 2014-12-07T18:22:35Z 2014-12-07T18:09:46Z

Would it be possible to use the Split command on Ellipse or on Spline curve?

Now it works on lines, arcs and circles only.......

FS#1139: dxflib: leading / trailing spaces are removed from text 2014-12-06T12:38:35Z 2014-12-05T20:38:39Z

dxflib strips leading / trailing spaces from text when importing DXF files.

FS#1138: Xlines (infinite lines) via 'Parallel Line' 2014-12-02T15:29:37Z 2014-12-02T12:33:30Z

Would it be possible to add Xline (infinite line) draw via ‘Parallel Line’ tool?
