Flyspray:: http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/ Flyspray::QCAD: Recently opened tasks 2015-03-24T11:49:16Z FS#1200: Embed fonts in exported PDF http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1200 2015-03-24T11:49:16Z Tamas TEVESZ This is not the same as  FS#782 . Is it possible to have referenced fonts embedded in the exported PDF files somehow? Sort of like producing PDF/A (not really, but at least with the fonts referenced being included)? I have played around a little with QPrinter::setFontEmbedding(), but it didn’t really produce any results (pro or con). I am not sure it can even be done, as looking around there are numerous references (rather questions and RFEs) for creating PDF/A-3 format PDFs with Qt, but I am yet to bump into a resolution. I almost have a feeling that generating PDF/A-1 files is possible, but I have not found any definite guidelines or ways to that either. The use case is obvously when you don’t have a particular font installed on the system you are printing your designs on, for example. This is not the same as  FS#782 .

FS#1197: Small Polyline offset with 'round join' makes line segments, not arcs http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1197 2015-03-20T08:55:44Z Thomas Fritz When making an offset of a polyline with ‘round join’ enabled, and making a small offset of 0.0015 inches, no arcs are made, only coarsely interpolated line segments.Further tests show that this is true until the offset is increased 0.040 inches; then the offset begins to create arcs. The creation of arcs in a polyline offset with such small distances did work in QCAD 2.x.

FS#1195: Installer should not require prior version to be uninstalled http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1195 2015-03-18T18:47:26Z Jim Foster I would like to see the installer not stop because there is already a version of QCAD installed. This is the only product that I have used in recent history that requires the prior version to be uninstalled before the new version can be installed. Please consider removing this requirement and let the installer do an update. ThanksJim I would like to see the installer not stop because there is already a version of QCAD installed.

FS#1194: Rounding fourth corner of rectangle causes rectangle to disappear. http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1194 2015-03-15T20:39:30Z Jon Hollahan When rounding the fourth corner of a rectangle, with trim checked or unchecked, instead of the corner being trimmed to a radius, the rectangle itself disappears leaving only the corner with the rounded off portion intact.

FS#1193: Landscape print lacks rotation http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1193 2015-03-16T10:12:43Z Poul-Henning Kamp I have spent a couple of days banging my head against this. If I print the attached drawing in landscape mode to my printer, the drawing is not rotated, and the paper only contains ~2/3rds, oriented the wrong way. If I print to PDF-File, open in gv(1), and change the size field from “Automatic” to the chosen papersize, same thing happens. If I print to Postscript-File, open in gv(1), change the size field to the chosen papersize, the rotation is correct. Many PDF viewers will autodetect missing rotations and other such stuff, and you will never notice a mistake like this, but gv(1) does it the “old-school” way and shows the mistake. The crucial bit of the Postscript output is: /pageinit { % 210 *297 mm (landscape) 90 rotate 0.060000000 -0.060000000 scale } def Something similar is missing in the PDF and the output to the printer. PS: This is also on FreeBSD, but I doubt that matters at all for the “print to file” operations. I have spent a couple of days banging my head against this.

FS#1192: print Dialog not shown on FreeBSD http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1192 2015-03-15T20:21:53Z Poul-Henning Kamp I compile git/trunk on FreeBSD, and the print dialog does not come up. I tried the obvious fix in scripts/File/Print/Print.js: if (RS.getSystemId()==="osx" || RS.getSystemId()==="linux" || RS.getSystemId()==="freebsd") { But that didn’t work.

Would be nice to have them removed. Yes - it is only cosmetic but it is also stealing space in the Toolbar.
