675QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOption for fixed Text and Dimension heights ...Assigned
1 Task Description

I think it would be nice to have the possibility to decide a fixed Text and Dimension (inclusive Arrows) height what is not affected by the Print scale. That means: If I have a given height of 3,5mm it will always be printed with 3,5mm - no matter what the scale for the printing is.
Yes, I see also the problem that I could run in space problems after I twitch to the Print preview - but that will also happen when I change the Text hight in the preferences for a 5:1 printing.
Maybe this Feature Request doesn’t looks important if you are usually working with Metric Units but if you have to handle Imperial Units then it is a pain in the back to make always the calculation to get the same heights.
Try it by your self; 3,5mm = 0.137795” = 1”:1” Now I like to print it in 1”:256” ops - to small - ok 1”:64” ... no, to big, maybe 1”:128” .......and QCad can’t remember the previously numbers. ;-)

1464QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOption button to access finer grid to snapAssigned
Task Description


I use eagle cad for pcb designs and I like its ability to snap to finer snap to grid when pressing option button (ALT in windows).
I am fine with auto grid setting, however, it would be good to also have a way to access finer grid when pressing down option button.

For example, when zoomed out, grid is 100mm apart.
When pressing down on the option button (ALT in windows), grid switches to finer 10mm.
This will save me time, zooming in to access finer grid to snap to.

631QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOption "Scale" für das öffnen von Templates ...Assigned
Task Description

Wenn ich eine Zeichnung plane überlege ich mir natürlich im Vorfeld welche Blattgröße und welchen Maßstab ich verwenden möchte.

Wenn ich Templates (z.B. Zeichnungsblatt A4) für die Blattgröße öffnen könnte und dabei direkt einen Skalierungsfaktor (z.B. 10) vorgeben könnte hätte ich ohne Umwege gleich alles was man braucht. In diesem Fall ein A4 Blatt im Maßstab 1:10.

Im Grunde genommen das selbe was ich bereits mit Library Items machen kann ... ;-)

288QCAD (main)Performance IssueLowopening dwg file takes very long [improved]Assigned
Task Description

Opening a 4 MB dwg file results in no-response for about five minutes. Opening the same file with DraftSight takes less than five seconds.

704QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOld Hatch FunctionAssigned
3 Task Description

It would be nice to implement the old hatch function as a tile function in parallel with the newer more industry standard hatch function. A tile function that would allow overlap +/- would be even better, and a great productivity boost, almost like an array within a set of bounds.

Thanks, Bob

1130QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOffset Polyline from both sides at onceAssigned
Task Description

It would be great to have a tick box to be able to offset a polyline from both sides/edges at once.

Maybe a similar feature could be added to the line -parallel tools?

775QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNote book tool for QCADAssigned
1 Task Description

It would be really cool to have a Note book tool for QCAD!

For example I am often working on a draft and at the same time scribbling notes down on a separate piece of paper relating to the drawing I am working on, could be anything e.g. add a block,add a dimension etc. etc... all sorts of things to remind myself about - all related to a particular drawing.

Of course I could use any number of other programs for this but a simple dedicated tool inside QCAD (could be called the ‘QCAD scribbler ;)) would be much better, especially one that can save the notes to a particular file, then when I open up my drawing again - my notes are there too!

641QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowNo warning is displayed when lengthen tool is used with...Assigned
Task Description

Command ‘Lengthen LE’ will extend most arcs but not all (2 arcs in the attached drawing do not work)! There is no obvious reason for this from the users point of view.

1092QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew tool: draw trace entitiesAssigned
1 Task Description

Add tool to construct new trace entities.
Trace entities can currently only be loaded from DXF/DWG.

964QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew tool request - 'Break Out Arc' from CircleAssigned
Task Description

It would be useful to be able to pick a Start and End point of an Arc within a Circle to then break this out. So in principle another break out tool.

Please see topic:http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=33&p=8826#p8826

1364QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew Tool -'Run Parallel with'Assigned
2 Task Description

New Tool request:

When drawing a line it would be good to have a tool/option to ‘run parallel with’.

For example start to draw a line and choose ‘run parallel with’, select appropriate line to draw parallel with!

1363QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew Tool - make lines horizontal or verticalAssigned
Task Description

New Tool Request:

To have a tool to make any given line which is ‘not’ orthogonal already into an orthogonal line.

For example if I had a line at 30 degrees by using the tool I could change the line to be either horizontal or vertical.

813QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew Snap tool: Isometric coordinates ...Assigned
Task Description

It would be nice to have an additional Coordinate tool for isometric constructions.

If I’m working on an isometric drawing I have to design my things with x, y, z coordinates.
Y is, of course not a problem but for x and z I have most off the time to work with construction lines for move, copy, locate etc.
With an isometric coordinate snap tool what will follow the 30° angles for x and z we could save a lot of construction lines ;-)

1446QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew Polygon toolAssigned
1 Task Description


if I need to design a bolt circle (circle on circle) and the single bolt diameter and the quantity of circles are given then I can use the QCAD Polygon Tool “Polygon 2 Points of Side” ... but for the Length of the side I have to do a workaround (Line with this length) to determine the desired length.

It would be very convenient to have an additional tool for a Polygon which has the possibility to ask me for the center, corners and the length of the sides.

1362QCAD (main)Feature RequestLownew layer tool: Toggle visibility allAssigned
2 Task Description


I use a lot of “temp” layer to keep my drawing organized during a design session. Ad the end of the day (or week or month ...) I need to get rid of this “garbage” but unfortunately there is no easy way to delete all this layer in one go.
Most of the time those layer are invisible. The “important layer” are visible. If I could toggle all layer from visible in invisible in one go with a switch like “Toggle visible layer all” and then use “Select all” / delete / Purge unused layer I’m able do get rid of this stuff with just a few clicks.

The same tool would help to improve the workflow in the case that I just have to switch between all visible / invisible layer for testing / double checking / cleaning or what ever. Currently I have to toggle every single layer to get this done and if I work with many layer I need to have a perfect working memory (or a piece of paper with many notes!) to be able to restore the same desired working order.

And I’m confident - there are many more useful scenarios for a tool like this one ... ;-)

pics: “Toggle visibility all” with one click:

1505QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew feature - use info tools with scaleAssigned
Task Description

When using the info tools, like the point to point measure it would be useful to be able to select a scale as well.

For example, when I scale a drawing say to 1:20, when working on the scaled drawing I can measure accurately with the measure tool in 1:20 also, without having to keep refering to the 1:1 drawing.



1621QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew Drawings in Draft ModeAssigned
Task Description

See: https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=5001

1440QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew Drawing in Simple APIAssigned
Task Description

Could it be possible to add a simple function to add a new empty drawing (like File > New) to Simple.js ? Thank you. (PS, this simple.js API is awesome, btw :D)

( I already have my own to simplify my scripts, but it does not seem to work correctly if I set action.setRequiresDocument(false); in the init functions

1165QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew Create Spiral ToolAssigned
4 Task Description

A new tool to create Spirals would be great to have, with an option to restrict the decline to achieve to draw either Logarithmic or Linear styles.

Please see related topic:


792QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew 'Match' properties toolAssigned
Task Description

To add a new ‘Match’ properties tool.

For example, I have a large drawing with lots and lots of entities on various layers and I want to select some entities (say 500 or more) which are all on different layers and change all these selected entities to match the properties of one other particular entity - but, but I want the ‘Matched’ entities to remain on their own layers.

OK, of course I can use the property editor for this and this is fine in most instances but I would first need to determine the the layer data for the properties of the entity I would like to match to (Color, Line weight and Line type) in the first place and then I need to remember these attributes in order to change things in the property editor in order to change all of my selection to match!

As I say mostly the above procedure would be fine to use but for convenience it would be great to have a new tool to do all this for me and cut out a few steps in the process.

A new ‘Match’ properties tool procedure could be something like this:

1. Select Match properties tool.

2. Select all entities to be matched.

3. Select entity to match to.

4. Tick or leave un-ticked - move to same layer.

5. Complete process.

* Actually, while writing this I`ve just thought of another useful addition which could be added to the Info tool set, ‘Entity’ properties info!
Example - click on Info > Entity Properties and click on the entity in question and then the properties are displayed without going to the layer data for this!
Just an idea ;)

293QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowmulti-select for blocksAssigned
Task Description

It would be nice if one could select multiple blocks in the block list at once (holding ctrl or ctrl+shift). Main purpose would be to delete them if they are not needed anymore. If possible, the same applies to layers.

786QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMulti - Breakout toolAssigned
1 Task Description

A ' Multi ' Breakout tool or added option to the existing Breakout tool.

For example see attached image.

An option to remove all segments within a chosen boundary would be good, in my example I want to remove all the hatching within the Red circle.

So after exploding the Hatch, currently I have to remove all segments singularly!

Of course I could have placed the circle first and hatched around it - but in this and most instances it is easier to design and to produce the Hatching first and then place my circle/shapes etc.

833QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMove number of copies into Options toolbarAssigned
Task Description

The Number of Copies (Delete Original, Keep Original, Multiple Copies) and whether to use the current layers attributes should be found in the Options toolbar of the active tool.

This way the option would be set before or during the operation (preview?)the popup window afterwards would be obsolete.

822QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowmove Freehand Line to Polyline ToolsAssigned
Task Description

In order to be more easily editable after creation Freehand Line should produce a Polyline and should be moved away from Line Tools to Polyline Tools

1628QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMove / Copy and snap tangentialAssigned
3 Task Description

Please see:


1170QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMore options for "Paste along entity"Assigned
1 Task Description

The new tool “Paste along entity” is very useful! But I work mostly in mechanical engineering and would like to see more options to determine where it has to start with the first insert item.


1. That is how it works right now - no chance to get it started on both ends of an line.

2. If I need to have my items also on the ends I have to use additional the normal “Paste” function.

3. If I could tell the “Paste along entity” that there is a start and end “Base” dimension then I’m a big step further. ;-)

I could tell the tool that it has to start at “0” or at “25” and the rest is just regarding the calculation. Correct?

However - you need many times in mechanical engineering etc. a hole pattern which will start at:



25, 123.5, 123.5, 123.5, 123.5, 123.5, 25

It would be very nice to have this also in combination with the “Paste along entity” tool ;-)

512QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowModify stretch and Restrict orthoAssigned
1 Task Description

The modify stretch tool wants first and second corner, start and end point, then starts afresh. When I turn on restrict horizontally eg to align two points between start and end, the restriction sticks and I have to call restrict none, to be able to perform the next iteration, set the first corner then.

So, in the quest for a comfortable user interface, it was nice, if the modify stretch first/second corners parameter setting was not affected by current restrict/ortho etc. settings. Actually, that does not make any sense at all anyways, does it, a rectangle is defined by two degrees of freedom, isnt it?

1762QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowModify // .... selection of entities on locked layer al...Assigned
Task Description

Not served with the degration to ‘Suggestion’ FS#1759.
Demanded closing FS#1759 & re-entered

Locking entities (by layer) to avoid selection,eg. nearby,very close by or on the same spot, does not have the intended influence.

Asumed wrong:
- Modify DI
- Modify B2
- Modify D3
- Modify MT
These 4 need a single entity to be selected and selection of a locked entity is allowed.(=questionable)
The action will allways leed to ‘not allowed’.(=correct)

- Modify RM
- Modify CH
- Modify RN
These 3 need a pair of entities.
RM: Selection of a locked limiting entity is allowed (=questionable), enity to trim not.(=correct)
The action will trim unlocked entities to the locked limiter.(=questionable)
CH & RN: Selection of a pair of entities is allowed.(=questionable)
Trimming if ‘trim’ is on will not occur because locked and leeds to ‘not allowed’.(=correct)
The creation of the bevel or rounding on an active locked layer will not occur because locked and leeds to ‘not allowed’.(=correct)
The creation, except for polyline segments (because locked themself), on an active unlocked layer will be done.(=correct)

Less severe but still questionable: (because these don’t necerally act on the locked entities themselves)
- Modify OF
- Modify OH
- Modify SS
OF: Selection of a locked base entity is allowed.(=questionable)
The preview is casted only if the active layer is unlocked.(=correct)
The creation is only done on an active unlocked layer.(=correct)

SS: Selection of point references from entities on locked layers is allowed.(=questionable)
Strechting is only done for unlocked entities. (=correct)

894QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowModify - Clip to Rectangle: copy area to clipboardAssigned
1 Task Description

New mode for clip to rectangle: copy contents of rectangular area to clipboard.

1262QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMissing some kind of "QCAD is still working" indicator.Assigned
Task Description

If I have to do some kind of intense tasks like converting a previous Polyline, which is now exploded to lines (maybe a couple hundred thousand short lines) back to a polyline (Polyline/Create from Segments) QCAD needs time to do that. In this “working time” I can’t see any indicator that QCAD is working. Not a Hourglass on the mouse or some other indicator. I have just the feeling: Nothing is going on right now ...

It would be nice to have some kind of visual info that QCAD is working.

767QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMerging/Combining segments of a straight line into oneAssigned
2 Task Description

Sometimes you end up with a straight line which is broken/split into several parts. It would be great to have a tool to merge/combine these segments into one.

That would be the opposite/complementary tool to the “Split Entities” tool.

836QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMerge different Offset tools into just twoAssigned
Task Description

Merge Parallel Line(with distance), Concentric Arc(with distance), Concentric Circle(with distance) and Offset(Polyline) into one generic Offset with distance tool that if possible also works for ellipses and splines.

Do the same for the “through point” tools so that there also is just one Offset through point tool.

The Offset tools could be located with the Modification tools.

Task Description

Feature request
See topic - http://www.ribbonsoft.com/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=2015

Just a thought, but one that could be useful for machinists in particular - a measurement tool that can snap to a point as per usual, but then just displays the drawing coordinates in X and Y. This could be expanded to the dimensions tool set, so that you can click on a point and print the coordinates next to it.

Task Description

1005QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMaking use of mouse buttons configurableAssigned
Task Description

According to the help, one requires a middle mouse to pan. Since few standard mice have middle buttons, this is a poor choice for this all important function. The default should be the right mouse button when ever the mouse is placed in an open area with nothing else to select. That way right click can still be used to invoke a pop down menu when ever the mouse is placed over an object that might have a need for pop down menu options. Additionally, the Pan mouse key should be alterable and selectable from a Preferences option, since if one does have a three button mouse, we should not prevent a user from employing this hardware if they have it. The same might be said for all mouse buttons to allow the user to configure the mouse operation to that which is most comfortable and efficient for their tasks.

1570QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowmake the stretch tool more flexible in selecting nodesAssigned
1 Task Description

Stretching multiple points of an entity is not possible to my knowledge. I
can use the stretch tool but this gives me a rectangular selection box and
this limits my posibilities. For example when entities are over eachother.
I hope that in the future this will become more like blender. With a freedraw
selection tool and/or shift clicking multiple nodes.

849QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMake maximum visible reference points of selection conf...Assigned
1 Task Description

Provide configuration option to raise / lower maximum reference points that are shown for selected entities (currently fixed to 1000).

Original report:

Imported a spline-dxf from adobe illustrator. Converted the spline to polyline with explode command. Then no anchor points / vertex points / vertices were showing anymore. Simplified the polyline so that it had less than 1000 points. Vertices became visible.

I think some freeform objects need actually more than 1000 vertices. Also them need to be edited. Please increase the amount of vertices showing to biginteger

1462QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowMac Trackpad zoom gesture not working as expectedAssigned
1 Task Description


I am using mac version and I have annoying issue with trackpad.
I use qcad primary with my trackpad and under application preferences (Graphics View/Navigation), my setting is as follows.
Mouse wheel / two finger swipe: Scroll (Trackpad...
Enable pan gesture : unticked (found that enabling this often goes into pan mode when I am just moving my pointer around)
Limit zoom and scroll to prevent overflows : ticked (hoping that this would prevent weird zooming issue. I will describe what I am experiencing later this page)
Reverse mouse wheel direction for zoom :unticked
Mouse wheel zoom factor: 1.02

Things work as expected:

  • panning with two finger swipe
  • and the rest

Issue I am experiencing:

Often, when I am zooming in and out with two finger gestures, the view suddenly sets to some weird state and my drawing goes off the ruler.
The mouse point remains where it is.

Reset viewpoint with autozoom and navigate around.

Expected zoom behaviour:
I expect viewpoint to zoom in / out at where my mouse pointer is or at least the centre of current view point.

720QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLocked Blocks ....Assigned
1 Task Description

It is nice that I can scale or rotate a block - but right now I see also a big plus in a kind of locking function for Blocks.
It would be nice to have a “locked” option ad least for the scaling of blocks.

Example: Think about Clives “Radiator ‘Cover’ screen” http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=2060 and how you could manipulate this screen with “scale blocked blocks” ;-)

1229QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLoad last project at startAssigned
Task Description

When starting QCAD it will open a new, untitled, page causing me to close that, click through the saving option to discard changes and then load up the project i’m working on. It would be nice to have the option for the program to start with the last used project.
I checked the application preferences to see if this option was already possible as it’s common with other applications but couldn’t find it. In ‘Startup’ (the obvious place for it) there was only an option for the splash screen.

764QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLinks to Data sheet, Part List ...Assigned
Task Description

Most of our drawings have a Data sheet, parts List, cutting list, description etc etc on a pdf, world or excel file.

It would be nice to have a link possibility directly in QCAD to those files what will be saved with the drawing.
Like the bitmap function without displaying the files in the drawing ...

1373QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLine From Angle - additional option to select exisitng ...Assigned
1 Task Description

Often I find myself clicking on an existing line to determine the angle from the property editor, then copying and pasting this info into the angle field, it would be so very useful to have an additional option in the ‘Line from Angle’ tool to be able to pick an existing entity which would automatically register and fill in the angle for me,then all I would need to do would enter the length required.
