I just installed qcad-3.7.0-pro-linux-x86_32 on my up-to-date debian sid system.
When I choose the “Pen” to be visible in the toolbar, the line type is not useable at all, because the drop-down menu is far too narrow.
After deleting QCAD3.conf the drop-down menu appeared wide after the first startup of QCAD. After the second startup it appeared narrow again.
Got the same result on another 32bit installation, a 64bit installation, all debian sid/kde and the windows version 32bit (only tried with wine).

FS#1119: Improve presentation of linetype names in combobox 2014-10-27T16:27:32Z 2014-10-25T09:22:07Z

The Linetype Names in the pull-down menu for Layer are hardly readable - it seams to me that the description is used twice (in different ways) in each row.
Till 3.6.4 the Information was short and clear.

FS#1118: Text not saved 2014-10-28T20:12:35Z 2014-10-24T12:37:00Z


I am stage manager and I have been using QCAD PRO nearly every day for 2 years now.
But since yesterday it seems that text is not saved within the file : when I reopen a saved file, text doesn’t show up. Do I miss a setting ?
I currently run Mac OS X Mavericks but there haven’t been any issues with this OS for months.

I deleted the app and prefs and tried out with 3.6.0 (which I don’t use because it often quits brutally), and also the free version of 3.6.4
But the issue still the same.

As I use this app for my work, it is very annoying not to be able to use text !
Thanks for your help

FS#1114: After Linux update: segfault at startup 2014-10-28T09:03:52Z 2014-10-12T16:59:35Z

I’d try to use my qcad today, but cliking the qcad icon had no use. Opened an terminal window and executed whatever was in the icon properties, and it said segfault. Yesterday it worked. There have been an update inbetween, bash have been updated among others.

I’d have dumped uname -a to an file and enclosed it.

I’d have set the severity to critical, cause I’m not able to start qcad at all.

Please ask for any information you need.

Cincerely, Sigmund

FS#1113: Updating spatialindex? 2014-10-08T00:02:14Z 2014-10-08T00:02:14Z

Prompted by d9beb4 - this is actually fixed in current upstream sources (by killing bzero in favor of memset, which is the right thing to do).

It might worth considering to update the spatialindex component.

FS#1112: Gradients 2014-10-06T14:06:57Z 2014-10-06T14:06:57Z

I would very much like to ask for the option to Hatch/Fill with a gradient of one or two colours.

Many Thanks


FS#1111: Option to swap right/middle mouse button - add context menu 2014-10-06T12:46:24Z 2014-10-06T12:46:24Z

Most of the other slightly non-standard CAD/eCAD tools I work with (e.g. Diptrace, PTC Creo Elements) use the right mouse button to drag.
So when changing between these applications, it’s slightly confusing/annoying that I need the middle mouse button to drag in QCad.
Even worse, the middle mouse button on most mice is the scroll wheel which is not really comfortable to hold while dragging.

So I’d propose an option to switch the function of the middle and right mouse button to allow users to choose the preferable option.

Furthermore, the two named applications show that it’s easily possible to combine dragging (mouse pressed) and context menu (mouse clicked) on the same mouse button.
Providing a context menu would increase the usability especially for people used to Windows default applications.
I.e. deleting, copying, creating polylines from segments, breaking up blocks/polylines would be functions I’d find useful in a context menu.
