FS#1765: Errors with polyline offset http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1765 2018-06-04T14:54:29Z CVH 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.

FS#1764: Zoom in with middle click http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1764 2018-06-21T09:08:51Z Jean-François Lemaire 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 I would suggest adding a feature Inkscape has, which is that a single middle click zooms in.

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)
