FS#1731: Option to place text to other side 2018-06-21T09:09:53Z 2018-04-02T18:55:39Z

Hi Andrew,

It would be good to have an option to be able to place the text to the left or right,maybe just a simple check box? please see attached screenshot to explain. In this instance (and I have to do this a lot ;)) I had to explode the dimension entity and rearrange the text manually :(

Many thanks

FS#1764: Zoom in with middle click 2018-06-21T09:08:51Z 2018-05-27T06:37:15Z

I would suggest adding a feature Inkscape has, which is that a single middle click zooms in. This is not at the detriment of panning, since the mouse/pen (I use a Wacom tablet) doesn’t move. Right now middle click doesn’t do anything so I don’t think it should be a problem.

Another awesome and related Inkscape zooming feature is that Shift+middle click shifts to window zooming. But with the added bonus that you don’t lose the tool you’re in. Try it out on Inkscape if I’m not clear!

Cheers,
JFL

FS#1768: Draw > Polyline > Create From Segments: segments deleted even if no polyline can be added 2018-06-13T09:15:30Z 2018-06-13T05:17:37Z

‘Create From Segments’ ‘OG’ includes and admits selection of segments on locked layers.

A)
-When selecting a segment on a not locked layer it can include segments on locked layers that connect to the string. (Assumed wrong)
-A copy of the segments on the locked layer(s) are included in the polyline. (Assumed wrong)
These segments are not removed from the locked layer(s) because of their locked nature. (Intended behaviour)
eg. ‘OG’ & selecting the arc at point A in the example file. The arc is on a not locked layer.

B)
-When selecting a segment on a locked layer it will fully remove segments that connect to the string on not locked layers. (Assumed very wrong)
-Connecting segments on the locked layer(s) will not be converted to a polyline because of their locked nature. (Intended behaviour)
eg. ‘OG’ & selecting the line at point B in the example file. The cyan lines are on a locked Layer.

Both A & B can be undone.

The example is a part of the ‘Skewing project’.

FS#1766: Edit > Application Preferences: Tool Settings: cannot add menus to Tool Matrix 2018-06-11T10:40:49Z 2018-05-30T20:27:54Z

I wanted to add a couple of toolbars to the Tool matrix via the Tool Settings application preferences but all options are greyed out (see attached screenshot). I tried with a new config file and the result is the same. Is this the expected behaviour?

FS#1765: Errors with polyline offset 2018-06-04T14:54:29Z 2018-05-29T05:13:33Z

Win 7 32 bit QCAD 3.20.1

Ofsset of a base-line with arcs results in massive ammount of errors.
Most of them occur as a cluster of very tiny segments and are part of the offset. (zoom far in at the red circles)
Mostly they occur where the offsetted arcs should merely be trimmend pairwise.
Some occur as detached entities or as detached strings of entities very near the offset (strings not documented).
Spooks occur at opposite site when base-line is not closed.
360° curls can occur with R = Offset.
Null-entities may occur (not documented, hard to find and not able to copy).

The base-line is checked and sound and has mixed tangentially or not tangentially connected arcs.
Offsetting the mother base-line of the base in the file has similar effect but not all and/or different ones.
Also encountered with offseting polys from fonts.
Used to define pocket paths for CNC.
Detected because the CNC driver will not accept Self-crossers, Null-entities or open ends depending on the settings.

Work arround is to explode and select small entities but this does not solves the issues.
1) Choosing the tolerance large enough will detect small segments that should stay.
2) Recombining will generate new ones at the place where the main segments remain crossed.
Cleaning up the paths is a daunting process with some thousand segments for several offsets.

I assume this has an infuence on the CAM part of QCAD too unless the offset method is different.

FS#1761: Info Polyline area does not find polylines (II) 2018-05-25T15:19:58Z 2018-05-20T12:27:47Z

Selecting Info // Polyline area
And hovering over a drawing with all kinds of entities.
Does not find any polyline on the drawing hovering over them.
Nor clicking on them.

Not a locked layer issue.
All are visible.

FS#1762: Modify // .... selection of entities on locked layer allowed 2018-05-25T15:19:25Z 2018-05-21T09:09:24Z

Not served with the degration to ‘Suggestion’ FS#1759.
Demanded closing FS#1759 & re-entered

Locking entities (by layer) to avoid selection,eg. nearby,very close by or on the same spot, does not have the intended influence.

Asumed wrong:
- Modify DI
- Modify B2
- Modify D3
- Modify MT
These 4 need a single entity to be selected and selection of a locked entity is allowed.(=questionable)
The action will allways leed to ‘not allowed’.(=correct)

Questionable:
- Modify RM
- Modify CH
- Modify RN
These 3 need a pair of entities.
RM: Selection of a locked limiting entity is allowed (=questionable), enity to trim not.(=correct)
The action will trim unlocked entities to the locked limiter.(=questionable)
CH & RN: Selection of a pair of entities is allowed.(=questionable)
Trimming if ‘trim’ is on will not occur because locked and leeds to ‘not allowed’.(=correct)
The creation of the bevel or rounding on an active locked layer will not occur because locked and leeds to ‘not allowed’.(=correct)
The creation, except for polyline segments (because locked themself), on an active unlocked layer will be done.(=correct)

Less severe but still questionable: (because these don’t necerally act on the locked entities themselves)
- Modify OF
- Modify OH
- Modify SS
OF: Selection of a locked base entity is allowed.(=questionable)
The preview is casted only if the active layer is unlocked.(=correct)
The creation is only done on an active unlocked layer.(=correct)
OH: Selection of a locked base entity is allowed.(=questionable)
Selection of point references from entities on locked layers is allowed.(=questionable)
The preview is casted only if the active layer is unlocked.(=correct)
The creation is only done on an active unlocked layer.(=correct)
SS: Selection of point references from entities on locked layers is allowed.(=questionable)
Strechting is only done for unlocked entities. (=correct)
