Flyspray:: Thu, 28 Aug 2014 21:31:49 +0200 Flyspray::QCAD: Recently opened tasks FS#1096: Issues with SVG import (mirrored elements, wrong scaling) V. Oth Thu, 28 Aug 2014 20:58:15 +0200 The example (back.svg) is appended. If you open it with Inkscape, you see the rectangle should be above the "USB" label.

My impression is that the sign of the X coordinate is swapped for some reason. At least if I mirror it
using two points on the Y axis, it seems to appear where it should be.

Apart from this, also the dimensions are wrong after import. In the original SVG, the outer shape is 144.3mm wide.
This is also visible in the header of the SVG:

However, after importing to QCad, the width is measured as 40.7247. This is a puzzling factor of 3.5433 which doesn't look
like metric/imperial conversion issue but like a complete misinterpretation of the sizes/units used in the SVG.]]>
FS#1095: Isometric projection: Projection uses application preferences for dimension entities Husky Thu, 28 Aug 2014 09:51:26 +0200 Application Preferences:
Units: inch
Dim: Fractions

Changed the Drawing Preferences to:
Units: mm
Dim: Decimal

Design a Dim and it will be created with the mm/Deci settings - as expected,

Select now the Dim - activate the ISO Tool - the try to determine the reference point fails / it's way of the clicked point and now the produced ISO Projection will use the attributes for DIM's from the "Application Preferences" setting - hmmmmmmm, not as expected :-(]]>
FS#1094: Support OS X 10.9.x (Maverick) Full Screen Pattern Johan Persson Tue, 26 Aug 2014 21:06:45 +0200
With this I mean that applications in full screen will create a temporary new desktop as long as they are in full screen mode.]]>
FS#1093: Edit Layer attributes by double-clicking on entry in layer list V. Oth Tue, 26 Aug 2014 19:12:05 +0200 I would prefer if this would directly open the layer attributes dialog to change color/name etc.
FS#1092: New tool: draw trace entities Andrew Mon, 25 Aug 2014 16:22:58 +0200 Trace entities can currently only be loaded from DXF/DWG.]]> FS#1091: Qcad-Pro 3.6.3 Repeatable crash when using mirror tool under OS X 10.9.4 Johan Persson Sat, 23 Aug 2014 19:42:40 +0200
In this report I have included the crash trace from OS X as well as a simple example DXF file (a house gate) which can be used to repeat the crash. Just do a vertical mirroring a few times and the crash will happen.

It usually happens more if you choose "Keep original"

While not quite a showstopper I would consider this something that really needs fixing ASAP as it could mean data loss (which happened to me).

FS#1090: Export only selected layers to SVG and/or export each layer to a separate SVG V. Oth Fri, 22 Aug 2014 22:41:55 +0200 E.g. when selecting only layer A in the SVG export dialog, only the objects located/displayed on layer A would be exported to SVG.

As an alternative or additional export feature, there could be an option to export each (non-empty) layer to a separate SVG in one step.
The layer names could be used as (part of the) default file names during the export.
E.g. Layer A of file XYZ would be exported to "XYZ_A.SVG" while layer B would be exported to "XYZ_B.SVG" etc.]]>
FS#1089: Convert polyline from segments on locked layers deletes the segments V. Oth Fri, 22 Aug 2014 00:40:09 +0200 So you can easily destroy locked layers by mistake which contradicts the idea of locking layers.]]> FS#1088: Snap: can snap to endpoints of text entities in block references Andrew Wed, 20 Aug 2014 15:33:50 +0200 * Insert block reference
* Snap tools snap to endpoints, centers, etc. of text entity shapes]]>
FS#1087: Ruler ticks are not corresponding to the grid points Husky Sun, 17 Aug 2014 09:37:51 +0200 Ruler will completely disappear at a certain zoom level,
