When defining block attributes, the default text alignment is center.

I changed this to align left and copied an attribute (ctrl + C) and then pasted (ctrl + V) fourteen times.

As I opened each one up with the editor to change the tag information, I noticed that every copied/pasted attribute definition had changed to align right.

I purposely set the first one back to align left and copy/pasted it a few times. Each paste had the attribute text set to align right again.

FS#1679: Print Preview scale format metric/imperial selection box 2017-12-11T09:13:52Z 2017-12-11T00:53:16Z

Not sure: Bug or feature request. However - it’s right now confusing :-)

It would be nice if the scale format list would respond to the “Measurement System (for line types and hatch patterns)” setting.

If my setting is Metric:



1:5 etc etc

If my settings is imperial:



1”=4” etc etc

The line for “General properties”, “Layer” the line is too narrow,
so you do not see the layer name when the Property Editor is pinned to the side.

FS#1675: draw order incorrect using dwg2pdf to convert DXF to PDF 2017-12-08T22:36:27Z 2017-12-04T22:23:14Z

explicit drawing order of objects (such as sending hatch to back and bringing text to front) not respected when export to pdf used, the order of overlapping objects seems to use the order in which they were added to the drawing

this causes problems if we try to export a dxf to pdf and the hatching was drawn after some of the text

observed in Mac OSX El Capitan and Linux

FS#1672: Dimension tool displays wrong meassurement 2017-12-02T00:00:52Z 2017-12-01T22:24:02Z

Settings are:
General: Drawing Unit
Drawing Unit: Foot
Paper Unit: Inch
Measurement System: Imperial

Dimension Settings: Architectural


I draw a horizontal line 12 units (foot) long,
Use then the Horizontal DIM tool and it will display a measurement of 1’ = false,

I draw a horizontal line of 2 units (foot)long,
Use then the Horizontal DIM tool and it will display a measurement of 2” = false,

I assume the input for the line length is handled from the DIM tool as inch and not as feet.

delete a Layout Block in Block List - name e.g. ANSI A P,
create a new Layout Block - try to use the deleted name (ANSI A P) again and it will be declined because the “Layout already exists.
