FS#781 - Font is reset to Arial when editing text.

I added a text with Font “Alex Brush” and size 5. When I double-click on the text to edit it again, the font is reset to Arial and the size to 1.0.

Additional details to reproduce:

  • Main font of text is set to “Arial”
  • Individual font of selection is set to “Alex Brush”
  • The text dialog initially selects all text in the text input field which might trigger the font reset

Quick follow-up question: Does this only happen with this particular font or also with other fonts or even all fonts? Thanks.

I have tried it with several TT-fonts and it was always the same behavior.

Correct - that happens with all fonts - see also an old bugreport:
Text erstellt, individuell formatiert (Textfonts, Höhe, Farbe), positioniert in der aktuelle Zeichnung.
Doppelklicke ich den Text um ihn zu editieren poppt das Optionsfenster auf und der Text ist markiert. Im Text font wird mir gesagt das es der Text Arial ist mit einer Höhe von 1 und schwarz. Da ich aber NICHT Arial verwendet habe und die Texthöhen unterschiedlich sind und alles in rot ist dies eine falsche Information.
Hier hätte ich erwartet: Font = *VARIES*, Höhe = *VARIES*, Farbe = *VARIES*. Klicke ich dann mit der Maus in den Text (Markierung verschwindet, Cursor blinkt im Text) habe ich immer noch die selbe Info - erst ein zweiter Klick spuckt dann die richtige Info aus.

Husky:  FS#627  describes a different problem (see attachment font.png of this report).
 FS#627  is a usage / interface problem. This report is likely a bug (not reproducible here so far).

Christian Aigner: could it be that you have configured a reduced font list which does not include the font(s) in question under 'Edit' - 'Application Preferences' - 'Draw' - 'Text'? That way I can reproduce a similar behavior.

Christian Aigner commented on 19.04.2013 05:59

No, I didn't configure a reduced font list.

I recorded a short video to demonstrate this.

This problem has never been reproducible here. Can anyone confirm if this still exists in QCAD 3.1.4? Thanks.

Christian Aigner commented on 06.07.2013 17:04

I just tested it with the Linux version of QCAD 3.1.4 and the problem still exists. I shot a screecast of my test. Unfortunately I can't insert a link here. I'll send you the link by e-Mail.

This was test on a freshly installed QCAD 3.1.4
No configuration was changed or anything else.

Thanks. What is your exact Linux distribution and version thereof and what desktop (Gnome, KDE, ...) do you use?

Christian Aigner commented on 06.07.2013 17:20

I use Gentoo Linux, kernel 3.6.11
My desktop of choice is Fluxbox 1.3.2

Andrew commented on 06.07.2013 17:21

Thanks for the video. What is the text contents after creating the text in "Alex Brush" (see property editor).

Andrew commented on 06.07.2013 17:26

Another thought: does setting the main font on the left instead have the same problem?

Christian Aigner commented on 07.07.2013 11:33

Text contents in the property editor:

First it is

\fAlex Brush|b0|i0|c0|p0;\H12.5714;Test

but after opening and closing the text editor it changes to


Christian Aigner commented on 07.07.2013 11:34

Setting the main font on the left works well!
The text retains now its font when opened in the text editor.
