FS#1125: Property Editor / Total angle of an arc 2014-11-20T09:16:17Z 2014-11-20T09:16:17Z


if I have an arc and use the Property Editor to get the Geometrical information I always miss the total angle of the arc.

Yes - I have the Start and the End angle but to get the Total angle I have to draw construction lines to be able to use the Angular Dim or Info angle tool /or I need to use a pocket calculator ...

It would be nice to have this calculated by QCAD - I assume it can’t be that difficult to design an extra field which will display, based on the start and end angle, the total angle of an arc.

What do you think?

FS#1124: Cannot save linetypes with names with leading spaces 2014-11-18T12:57:07Z 2014-11-18T12:56:03Z

If third party files are loaded with linetype names with leading or trailing spaces, they cannot be saved.

“Invalid Symbol Table name”

FS#1123: Hatch in block causes performance problem 2014-11-18T12:57:20Z 2014-11-18T09:20:28Z

Hatches in blocks cause poor performance while (auto-)snapping.
The lines that make up those hatches are included in the search for intersection points which is not desirable.

FS#1122: Objects move inappropriately when confirming alignment by alignment tool (M,A). 2014-11-14T09:01:38Z 2014-11-12T05:32:23Z

I am trying to use the align tool (M, A) to align two text objects vertically. I am able to get them aligned how I want them, but when I confirm (click the green check box in the upper right-hand corner) they mysteriously jump up a large grid square or so. I am then able to get them back into the alignment by the “undo” command. In case that didn’t make sense I’ll try this one more time:

{Result} (User Action)

{text boxes out of alignment}(Align tool “M,A”){text boxes aligned}(click green checkmark){text boxes move randomly}(undo “ctrl-z”){text boxes aligned}

I’m thinking this is either operator error or a bug. It is consistent though.

FS#1121: Draw > Polyline > Append Node(s) broken 2014-11-18T13:55:41Z 2014-11-10T15:52:18Z

Selecting the polyline is not possible.
Possibly related to update of DrawPolyline tool.

FS#1120: Linetype Dropdown not useable in Linux x86_32 (and all other ?) 2014-10-27T17:35:31Z 2014-10-27T17:32:53Z

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 2014-11-10T15:49:59Z 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
