There are a couple of things from QCAD2.2.2 to QCAD3 that work, but do not seem as fluent. Sorry if this has been reported, there are a lot of feature requests in German that I can not read!

We nearly always use a file library, which was accesible easily via a box in the corner of QCAD

1) The Library browser does not recollect the last open tab status and library selected, so each time you open it, you have to move back to the library.

2) As it opens as a separate window, each time I move away from QCAD and back its gone behind ala GIMP style. It would be much nicer if it was dockable.

3) It would be nice to have a refresh now, rather than a refresh next time it starts.

Also other bit if you want it

1) Key press Alt+F, A will highlight “Save As” but does not select it. I would have expected a SaveAs Dialog to come straight up


This task depends upon

We're working on library browser improvements. The final library browser should be dockable again.

As far as I know 'Save as' has no standard key code under Windows. Under Mac OS X it's Command+Shift+S, under Linux/Gnome Ctrl+Shift+S.
