The "" directive seems just be ignored in this case, but in other instances I have seen it result in ellipses.

And the "" directive should of course result in a circle, when rx and ry are the same.]]>
FS#1200: Embed fonts in exported PDF Tamas TEVESZ Tue, 24 Mar 2015 10:21:48 +0100
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.]]>

FS#1197: Small Polyline offset with 'round join' makes line segments, not arcs Thomas Fritz Fri, 20 Mar 2015 00:41:10 +0100 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.]]>

Please consider removing this requirement and let the installer do an update.

FS#1194: Rounding fourth corner of rectangle causes rectangle to disappear. Jon Hollahan Sun, 15 Mar 2015 19:02:03 +0100 FS#1193: Landscape print lacks rotation Poul-Henning Kamp Sun, 15 Mar 2015 17:21:12 +0100
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.]]>
