FS#1615: Decimal point of dimensions shown as '?', preferences page throws exception 2017-07-12T14:44:59Z 2017-07-05T02:31:46Z

First. I am not able to find OS selection for macOS Sierra so I choose Mac OS X.
I noticed that when I opened my drawing, I saw dimensions on drawing showed ‘156?6’ instead of ‘156.6’ in prior version I had installed. Probably in 3.16.5

So I opened Dimension Settings page to review and found when opening Dimension Settings under Drawing Preferences,
Dimension Settings does not show. It remains blank.

Then I clicked on other settings menu item from left and clicked back on the Dimension Settings I was able to see the Dimension setting.
However; when I closed the dialog and try to open the Dimension Settings again, I am not able to see the settings page at all. Just blank. I can see other settings page fine.

One time when I was able to see the Dimension Setting, I noticed that the Separator symbol was blank. So I updated that to ‘.’ and hit OK.
The drawing still shows ‘156?6’ instead of expected ‘156.6’.

It seems the separator symbol is not being saved for some reason.

FS#1614: View > Selection Filter: no choices for linetype property 2017-07-04T20:32:26Z 2017-07-04T18:26:49Z

Good morning,
i’m using italian version of QCAD.
I’m very satisfied about it.
But the filter selection do not work if you want
to select by linetype.
I can not fill the last field requested with the line type.
Other filters for example color works well.
I’m sorry for my little english , i hope you will understand me.
Thanks a lot.

FS#1611: Cabinet projection at 30 degree also 2017-06-29T18:08:30Z 2017-06-29T14:45:34Z

Hi Andrew,

Cabinet projections are usually drawn at 45 or 30 degrees, having drawn up many furniture configurations over the years, would it be possible to add options for 45 and 30 degrees at all?



FS#1610: Switching from one drawing to another slow 2017-06-29T11:24:55Z 2017-06-29T10:50:56Z

When switching from one drawing to another, the 3D view is updated which can be slow, especially for drawings with many text entities.
