 629 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Viewports - not retaining positions? Closed
100%
Task Description

in Win 7-64

Hi Andrew
when I set up my default choice of viewports - say ‘Two vertical’, they do not retain either the initial starting position or indeed the position I leave them in when I reopen a drawing. On opening a new/previous drawing - always one of the viewports is at ‘almost’ full extents!
I then have to manually re-position my viewports to suit.

Is this normal behavior happening here?
It would be good if a drawing opened with persistent viewport positions held, possibly this option could be added to the ‘Layout’ Viewports dialog window?

*Out of interest, when you introduce an isometric grid in the future - will it be possible to set up a ‘Three:Right’ layout view for example and have all three viewports showing different planes - Top, Front and South East?

Thanks

Clive

 518 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Unable to use Library browser properly in RC4 Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi Andrew

In Ubuntu 11.10 and Windows 7 everything so far is working ok in QCAD apart from the Library browser!

1.In Win 7-64 I can run the browser and make a new folder, but when I try to set the permissions/open the folder - browser crashes.

2.In ubuntu 11.10 I first uninstalled RC2 then installed RC4. QCAD program runs ok but this time when I try to open up the browser (not a new folder)I get an error message stating that I do not have permissions to open the first file (vehicle -I think!)in RC2? If I select OK in the warning window the warning just keeps on repeating the same message for the next and subsequent files until I quit it.

 884 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Tool for copying/pasting selected entities along a path Closed
100%
Task Description

Not sure how complicated this one might be to develop/implement ?

But a tool for copying/pasting entities along a given path would be great. In the attached snapshot you can see what I am trying to acheive - to copy/paste the brick along a wall contour. A dedicated tool for doing something like this would be great...sure I can do it with the tools provided in QCAD already but it sure would make life so much easier if there was a tool specific for this kind of thing.
I am actually working on some ‘real’work projects with these requirements and it does take a bit of time to get correct!

Or maybe an additional Points tool option to plant points along a curve would be good!

 619 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Status bar - X,Y etc. input fields  Closed
100%
Task Description

It could be very useful to have in the status bar area - input fields for typing in X and Y position, Distance and Angle etc...

For example these could be used instead of entering absolute/relative coordinates in the command line.

1.Draw line.
2.Start point - enter in X Field.
3.Next point - enter in Y Field.

This method could also be used for specifying positions when placing other entities.

For me I tend to use a combination of the command line/GUI for most work but I think for those who do not wish to use the command line this could be useful.

Task Description

please see:
http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=1177

from LeoP

” What would be really useful is a method to select entities by type, rather than by location or layer.

It could have a user interface like the snap command with buttons for the entity type to select, or like the line command with a drop-down box.

This would enable one to quickly select e.g. all texts in a drawing for subsequent attribute modification. Now one has to select each text individually if the texts are scattered over the drawing and layers...”

Hatched block loses hatching when using isometric projection tool:
See -http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=32&p=7063#p7063

Is this normal behaviour here? or a bug?

Task Description

A ‘Repeat last tool’ button would be useful.
When one has fully cancelled all operations, sometimes it would be convenient to have the option to have a repeat of the last tool again...I’m thinking that a simple button could do this a bit like the reset/idle button.

 795 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Render circular arcs precisely - tool query Closed

Task Description

Although in my re-testing of this tool with 3.0.8 everything seemed fine I have since noticed that it only seems to work for line-weights of 0.5 mm and larger!
using a line weight of 0.00 produces the original non precise result.

Is this expected behaviour or is something still not quite right for this?

 797 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh QCAD hanging after loading working file Closed
100%
Task Description

I have the german Version of QCAD 3.0.0.
After starting QCAD I load my current work file (an architecture one).
After loading I get two working Areas in QCAD and after a while the complete Software QCAD (only QCAD) is hanging. It is not possible to close the QCAD SW with the task Manager of Windows 7. Only to log out helps to Close or remove the running SW. The attachment Shows a Screen copy. The view is when you see through milky glasses to QCAD.

I bought this SW a few days ago and then this happened. I have spend a lot of time to generate my Project and now this.

Is there any one who knows what the Problem is?
Is that a Problem of thw QCAD SW or can be the problem my current work file (generated with QCAD on my Notebook). Note, Problem happens on my work Station. I have started to work on my Notebook, but i found out that the Screen is to small to work with QCAD. So i moved the SW to my work Station. (Both working with Windows 7) This to get more Details abou the handling and whathappens before.

Would be great to get a quick Response or better a working solution for my Problem. When you need more details please let me know.

Often in print preview I need to move the paper around and position it with the ‘Move Paper Position’ tool, which is useful, but what would be an additional extra useful option would be a ‘Place Paper Here’ tool.

Then I could simply use this tool first and then use the ‘Move Paper Position’ tool afterwards to fine tune things!

If you look at the attached image you will see that in this students file they have got their drawing spread out all over the place:(

Task Description

Windows 7 - 64

Via - edit>drawing preferences or Application preferences>print page set up, it seems to make no difference setting the page orientation to either “Portrait” or “landscape” because when you go to print preview the set up you previously set doesn`t overide and set the orientation “set buttons” in print preview, so you have to manually set the orientation for the page you want to print from here (in print preview) regardless of the previously “preferenced” set up.
