 1378 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow  Wrong value separator accepted and accomplished Closed
100%
Task Description

My settings for Coordinate Format: Decimal Point = Dot

Accidentally using a comma instead of a dot in a value field leads to a wrong result without any warning.

Test:

Using the “Rectangle with Size” tool accidentally with a comma will not trigger a warning (red text) and it will draw a wrong sized rectangle.
It seems to me that QCAD is using the after comma value to draw this rectangle.
Given value 30,5 by 50,7 leads to a rectangle 5 by 7
Crazy values like 1.,.35 by 71.,.75 are also accepted and leads to a rectangle size of 35 by 75 without any warning.
A crazy value like 71.,..75 will finally trigger a red text warning!

Counter test horiz. Line: Value 100,25 leads to a line with 25 in length.
Value 100.25 leads to a line with 100.25 in length.

Using the same tools with the correct separator will work as expected!

Same game with most of all other tools which are asking for a given value. No warning at all - just wrongly accomplished.

And QCAD doesn’t remember the last path choice ....

If I have to save 50 Library Items I have to navigate 50 times thru my system to find - the same place.

0%
2 Task Description

If I work in QCAD only with Toolbars (and not with the “Cad Tools” there is nowhere a Button to find for “Create Block from selection”.
If I have to create a Block based on a selection I have to work with the Menu or have to activate the Cad Tools.

But, if I look at the Blocklist menu there is a function (+) to add an empty Block. It would be nice to have this button working for both situation - empty Block or depending on a selection to “Create Block from selection”.

Or alternative an additional Button ... :-(

Anyway - in my opinion would that make the “Blocklist” complete. :-)

829QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdditional options for the Info Tool Area ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

The Info Tool Polygonal Area is a helpful tool ... but I like to ask for additional options ;-)

Yes, the polygonal area makes absolute sense but many times you have just to check a square or rectangle area!

It would be nice and time (click) saving if we could use a “Strg Key” to limit the polygonal area to just a rectangle area.
Two mouse clicks for a rectangle area and done ;-)

In addition to that it would be nice to have the possibility to count up or down a couple areas.
E.g. I measure area 1 plus area 2 or area 1 minus area 2 ...
Maybe just with an additional keystroke like + or -

Task Description

We have already a powerful projection tool in QCAD - the Isometric tool.

It would be nice to have additional a “Dimetric tool” (Ratio 1:0.5:1, Angle 7°/42°) what is often used in the “Engineering world”.
It looks just more professional than the simple Isometric Projections and I’m pretty sure that could open a couple more Customer doors ;-)

Case:

Select a block array,
put it with “Copy with reference” or “Cut with reference” into the clipboard,
choose a reference point which isn’t in the center of the array,
use the paste tool / with option “flip pasted entities”

If I flip only in horizontal or vertical direction the preview box will double in size and I can’t place the entities precisely regarding to the reference point.
If I try to flip in both directions at the same time - you can’t see this effect.

Task Description

Ziehe ich mit der Maus eine normale Auswahlbox kann ich Elemente markieren.
Möchte ich einzelne Bereiche wieder herausnehmen muss ich alle Elemente einzeln anklicken (mit gedrückter Shift Taste).
Ich kann zwar dies komfortabler gestalten mit der Select → (De -) Select Contour Funktion welche aber erst über das Menue aufgerufen werden muss.

So wie ich einzelne Elemente mit der Maus auswählen und mit der Shift-Maus Funktion deselektieren kann wäre es schön wenn die Shift Taste auch bei Auswahlbereichen direkt zum deselektieren eingesetzt werden könnte.

 417 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Autosave Dateinamen Nummer ersetzten mit Datum. Closed
100%
Task Description

Wenn ich das Autosave System richtig verstanden habe funktioniert es so:

Nach Ablauf der eingestellten Zeit wird eine Datei mit Nummer im angegebenen Zielordner abgelegt.
Diese Nummer ist weder fortlaufend noch sicher auf- oder absteigend - also keinerlei Hinweis im Dateinamen für den Anwender welches nun die letzte Sicherung ist.
Ziel scheint zu sein das man eine Sicherung pro Tag hat, richtig?

Allerdings ist die Anzahl der Sicherungen pro Tag abhängig von der Anzahl der neu gestarteten QCAD Sitzungen. Starte ich das Programm einmal für den ganzen Tag habe ich eine einzige Sicherung von jeder bearbeiteten Zeichnung. Sicherungen haben dann die selbe Nummer und werden deshalb jeweils überschrieben.

Starte ich das Programm 10 mal pro Tag habe ich 10 Sicherungen (vorausgesetzt ich bearbeite die selbe Zeichnung in jeder Sitzung) mit unterschiedlichen und nicht in Reihe laufenden Nummern. Sicherungen können somit nicht überschrieben werden und am ende des Tages könnten leicht zig wenn nicht hunderte Sicherungen gespeichert sein.

Würde nun diese Nummer im Dateinamen ersetzt mit dem aktuellen Datum habe ich eine Sicherung pro Tag unabhängig wie oft ich QCAD an diesem Tag gestartet habe. Zudem kann der Anwender gleich den Sicherungstag im Dateinamen erkennen und muss sich nicht durch die “geändert am” Info sekundengenau kämpfen.

Macht das Sinn?

Question: In this case I’m only able to open the bak file and “Save as” under the old name to get my starting situation back ...?

Es wäre Arbeitserleichternd wenn ich bei den Optionen für Bemaßungen (Prefix/Postfix) eigene Präferenzen speichern könnte so das diese in allen Zeichnungen von mir verfügbar wären.
Zudem wäre es wünschenswert dieses nicht nur bei den Prefix sondern auch bei den Postfix Angaben nutzen zu können was dann alle(?) Manipulationen erschlagen würde.

Die Anzahl der Blöcke könnte z.B in der Block List eingeblendet werden wie z.B.: “Schraube M6x40 (17x)” oder auch in einer extra Text Liste.
Zudem könnten so auch nicht (oder nicht mehr) benutze Blöcke ermittelt werden wie z.B. “Schraube M6x20 (0x)” welche dann aus der Zeichnung entfernt werden könnten.

- the ability to overwrite an existing Block what is often much easier/faster than editing a Block ;-)

- After selecting a Block you get the info of the Block name in the Property Editor (Geometry / Referenced Block).
If I need to edit this Block I have to go to the Block List - have to search for this name because it is not marked .... and of course it is a long long list.

1625QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowCopy LayerAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

often I’m in the situation that I have to create an additional Layer mostly based on the settings from an already existing Layer. Just a question of organization. This new Layer has then everything identical except the name and one(?) Attribute. This could be that only the color or the Line weight deviates.

Example:

Existing Layer

Layer name: Lot 47 area existing

Attributes

Color: Red

Lineweight: 0.35

Linetype: Dashed


New Layer

Layer name: Lot 47 area proposal

Attributes

Color: Blue

Lineweight: 0.35

Linetype: Dashed

Unfortunately if done manually it happens in an blink of an eye that the human imperfection (me!) makes a mistake and (e.g.) a “Center (.5x)” finds it way into the Linetype Field instead of a “Center (.2x)” .... :-(

The workaround for a few User is to use in cases like this the Property Editor / General Property and customize single Attributes. In my opinion the first step to lose the control over your own drawing ...

A “Copy Layer” / Copy Layer Attributes” function would speed up this task and eliminate to a minimum the “human imperfection” factor.

I could imagine that a right click (like copy block) on the Layer triggers the “Add Layer” function and the dialog is already prefigured with the Settings of the Source Layer ...... ready for editing.
The new Layer itself is “empty” like any other new Layer.
