100%
Task Description

My QCAD setting for “Decimal Points” is “dot” instead of “comma”.

The new Line2PEx tool will only accept a comma - if I use a dot it will be automatically replaced by a comma.
The displayed angle in the drawing will use a dot.

100%
Task Description

My Coordinate Format/Decimal Point is adjusted to Dot’.’ but the “Centreline Cross (C,S)” will only accept Comma for Angel. X/Y works fine!

 1272 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Modify > Auto Trim: not undoable when used on spline Closed
100%
Task Description

Scenario 1:
like to use “Breakout segment” on a spline,
Status bar tells me that I CAN use this tool on a spline,
Breakout: works,
Undo: works,
Everything fine ...

Scenario 2:
like to use “Breakout manual” on a spline,
Status bar tells me NOT to use this tool on a spline but ...
Breakout manual: works,
Undo: works,
I think just the status bar needs an Infotext update.

Scenario 3:
like to use “Auto Trim” on a spline,
Status bar tells me NOT to use this tool on a spline but ...
Auto Trim: works,
Undo: works NOT,
I think the status bar needs an Infotext update and I guess in the undo function is a bug.

Task Description

If I try to draw a circle between two little circles with a radius (e.g.) of 3000 the tool shows me only two possibility’s - but there are much more. If I make a counter test with the tool “2 Tangents with Point” all possibility’s are correct shown.

 1377 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low CE - is asking to save an untouched drawing Closed
100%
Task Description

If I launch the CE edition / do nothing with the empty default drawing and then try to terminate QCAD an unexpected warning pops up:

Do you want to save the changes you made in ‘Untitled 1’ ...

Hey - I haven’t change anything and there is nothing what needs to be saved ... ;-)

 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.

100%
Task Description

... in dependence to the used Units.

I have notice this behavior a couple times before but wasn’t sure what is the trigger for that. Now I figured out one (I’m sure there are more) scenario which shows the effect:

New drawing,
Drawing preferences;
Drawing Units:
Meter,
Meter,
Metric,

Printing Page:
ISO A4

Print Preview:

Auto fit drawing to page - fails to calculate the scale,
Auto fit pages to drawing - fails also ...

Counter test:
same drawing - change Paper Unit to mm,
Reset Paper size to A4 ...

... and it works flawless ;-)

100%
Task Description

Hi,

if I create in a new drawing a layer list and use the Show all Layers / Hide all Layers function everything works as expected.

If I hide one or more Layers individually and directly in the Layer List (click on the Eye) I can’t make them visible with the Show all Layer function. It looks like individual hidden Layer are protected with a higher priority.

If I load an “old” drawing all individual settings for a hidden Layer are with a higher priority than Show all Layers. If I click every single Eye for each Layer to make them visible then I’m again able to toggle the visibility for all Layer in once.
