In Autocad when making a dimension when left clicking to place the dimension there is the possibility to drag the dimension to either side of the dimension. This is also possible with Qcad dimension, but it losses the snapping and does not extend the dimension line out to the dimension text.

This is very useful when the two lines the needs a dimension are close together, or overlapping with another.

Attached is two images one for autocad and one for Qcad

FS#1099: Add Leader with text and number bubble 2014-09-04T21:30:10Z 2014-09-04T21:30:10Z

Having leader with numbers and text would be awesome to better interact with the drawing and making BOM lists.

Currently it takes too mush time to make the leaders with text and number bubbles.

FS#1098: Support for set of layers 2014-09-03T16:52:31Z 2014-09-03T16:52:31Z

Many constructions refer to a basis of elements, which stay constant in all follow-ups. As an example there is a floorplan and I would like to create different variations of room layout (e.g. A and B). In my example the basis consists of 30 layers an each variation needs 10 further ones. At last there are 50 different layers in my drawing. Designing layout A needs layer 1 to 30 (basis) and 31 to 40 (A) to be shown, but 41 to 50 (B) must be invisible. Now I modify Var.B which makes me to single click the visibility of 31 to 40 (A) to be not shown and 41 to 50 (B) to be shown. You’ve got it?

It would be great help, to save the set of all shown layers by an individual name in a pulldown-menu. Visibility of my variations could be chosen by userdefined “set of layers”, e.g. “Var-A”, “Var-B” and “Var-A_but_different”. In this way I pick just one set-name in my pulldown-list instead of marking and demarking between countless layers.

In my opinion this tool would be a small aspect in QCad but a giant leap for user-pleasentness ;-)

I have some large library, but the library browser is always crashing since long time and several versions, also tagged versions. I need to disable it by removing LibraryBrowser.js completely or deleting my configuration in order to get QCad starting again.
This is the master head from git, on Gentoo@amd64

FS#1096: Issues with SVG import (mirrored elements, wrong scaling) 2014-08-28T21:28:45Z 2014-08-28T20:58:15Z

When importing an SVG created with Inkscape, one of the elements (rectangle) is shifted (mirrored?) to the left.
The example (back.svg) is appended. If you open it with Inkscape, you see the rectangle should be above the “USB” label.

My impression is that the sign of the X coordinate is swapped for some reason. At least if I mirror it
using two points on the Y axis, it seems to appear where it should be.

Apart from this, also the dimensions are wrong after import. In the original SVG, the outer shape is 144.3mm wide.
This is also visible in the header of the SVG:

 width="144.300mm"
 height="53.800mm"

However, after importing to QCad, the width is measured as 40.7247. This is a puzzling factor of 3.5433 which doesn’t look
like metric/imperial conversion issue but like a complete misinterpretation of the sizes/units used in the SVG.

FS#1095: Isometric projection: Projection uses application preferences for dimension entities 2014-08-28T21:31:49Z 2014-08-28T09:51:26Z

QCAD start,
Application Preferences:
Units: inch
Dim: Fractions

Changed the Drawing Preferences to:
Units: mm
Dim: Decimal

Design a Dim and it will be created with the mm/Deci settings - as expected,

Select now the Dim - activate the ISO Tool - the try to determine the reference point fails / it’s way of the clicked point and now the produced ISO Projection will use the attributes for DIM’s from the “Application Preferences” setting - hmmmmmmm, not as expected :-(

FS#1094: Support OS X 10.9.x (Maverick) Full Screen Pattern 2014-08-26T21:06:45Z 2014-08-26T21:06:45Z

It would be nice if the OS X Pro version could support the standard OS X full screen pattern in the same way as native OS X applications.

With this I mean that applications in full screen will create a temporary new desktop as long as they are in full screen mode.

FS#1093: Edit Layer attributes by double-clicking on entry in layer list 2014-08-26T19:12:05Z 2014-08-26T19:12:05Z

When double clicking on an entry in the layer list just nothing happens.
I would prefer if this would directly open the layer attributes dialog to change color/name etc.

FS#1092: New tool: draw trace entities 2014-08-25T16:22:58Z 2014-08-25T16:22:58Z

Add tool to construct new trace entities.
Trace entities can currently only be loaded from DXF/DWG.

FS#1091: Qcad-Pro 3.6.3 Repeatable crash when using mirror tool under OS X 10.9.4 2014-08-25T09:23:35Z 2014-08-23T19:42:40Z

Under OS X 10.9.4 I often experiencing a crash with QCad-Pro 3.6.3 when using the mirror tool. It’s repeatable to roughly 90% , just do it a few times and it will crash.

In this report I have included the crash trace from OS X as well as a simple example DXF file (a house gate) which can be used to repeat the crash. Just do a vertical mirroring a few times and the crash will happen.

It usually happens more if you choose “Keep original”

While not quite a showstopper I would consider this something that really needs fixing ASAP as it could mean data loss (which happened to me).
