FS#1380: export SVG stoped working 2016-02-11T10:00:23Z 2016-02-11T09:54:58Z

Just occured recently, I cannot now export SVG files. Qcad crashes. windows 10

FS#1379: Snap: cannot snap to intersection between infinite line and polyline 2016-02-10T14:21:19Z 2016-02-10T14:20:33Z

Intersections between polylines and XLines (infinite lines, contruction lines) cannot be found in some situations.

FS#1378: Wrong value separator accepted and accomplished 2016-02-11T08:40:57Z 2016-02-10T09:19:01Z

My settings for Coordinate Format: Decimal Point = Dot

Accidentally using a comma instead of a dot in a value field leads to a wrong result without any warning.


Using the “Rectangle with Size” tool accidentally with a comma will not trigger a warning (red text) and it will draw a wrong sized rectangle.
It seems to me that QCAD is using the after comma value to draw this rectangle.
Given value 30,5 by 50,7 leads to a rectangle 5 by 7
Crazy values like 1.,.35 by 71.,.75 are also accepted and leads to a rectangle size of 35 by 75 without any warning.
A crazy value like 71.,..75 will finally trigger a red text warning!

Counter test horiz. Line: Value 100,25 leads to a line with 25 in length.
Value 100.25 leads to a line with 100.25 in length.

Using the same tools with the correct separator will work as expected!

Same game with most of all other tools which are asking for a given value. No warning at all - just wrongly accomplished.

FS#1377: CE - is asking to save an untouched drawing 2016-02-11T09:54:33Z 2016-02-09T22:59:42Z

If I launch the CE edition / do nothing with the empty default drawing and then try to terminate QCAD an unexpected warning pops up:

Do you want to save the changes you made in ‘Untitled 1’ ...

Hey - I haven’t change anything and there is nothing what needs to be saved ... ;-)

FS#1376: Tool matrix: missing "X/Y of position" and "Y/X of position" snap function 2016-02-08T11:14:45Z 2016-02-08T11:12:28Z

FS#1375: Install in hidden folder 2016-02-06T14:56:18Z 2016-02-06T14:56:18Z

After each update, I add a dot before the ~user/opt folder (and in the program launcher) created by QCAD to unclutter my file manager’s appearance. Would be easy, I think, to make the installer put the program directly in ~user/.opt, and nobody would miss that folder while browsing through daily used files.

And what about installing the program as root, so all users of a computer could use it without personal installs, and only personal setting files created by users would be kept in ~user/.opt/qcam.

FS#1374: Using Filter in Tool Settings fails 2016-02-05T13:55:53Z 2016-02-05T13:48:47Z

Presumably after entering a search filter one would press enter on the keyboard, when I enter for example ‘Line’ and press enter the dialog closes and nothing happens ?

FS#1373: Line From Angle - additional option to select exisitng angle from entity 2016-02-05T13:08:13Z 2016-02-05T12:14:47Z

Often I find myself clicking on an existing line to determine the angle from the property editor, then copying and pasting this info into the angle field, it would be so very useful to have an additional option in the ‘Line from Angle’ tool to be able to pick an existing entity which would automatically register and fill in the angle for me,then all I would need to do would enter the length required.

FS#1372: Distance Point to Point - option for 'added' distances 2016-02-04T11:59:46Z 2016-02-04T11:59:46Z

It would be useful to have an additional option to be able to count/add up consecutive distances measured with this tool ;)
