1080QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowBitmap export: calculate size based on bounding box inc...Assigned
0%

I have created a drawing, where the CENTERS of the most outer lines have a distance of 3.06mm in both X and Y.
The line weight of these outer lines is 0.6mm, so the whole image is 3.06mm + 2* 0.6mm/2 = 3.12mm wide and long (center to center plus half of the line weight on every side).
Additionally in the export there is a frame around the image, making it 3.12 + 2*frame.
The export function however calculates 3.06mm when setting the resolution to 1000Pix/cm, so it does not include the line weights and the outer frame.

1071QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery Low(Bitmap) scaling convenience optionAssigned
0%

This can be done as is in QCAD today, but a quick convenience UI bit would be much appreciated.

Suppose you are working off a bitmap image (transcribing old scan, or you got your apartment’s floor plan like this, because, uh, what tenant needs DXF). It has dimensions markers and everything, but fat chance it’ll be to actual CAD scale after importing.

So, to bring it to scale, you measure between two tick marks on the scale, compute ratio based on measurement and what’s written on the dimension line, and do a scale operation (you can also have QCAD compute the ratio by using math expression, whatever).

That works fine.

A purely just for convenience function to do that would be much appreciated: pick two points, enter what the actual distance between them is, poof bam, appropriate scaling operation is applied.

As a twist, there could be some other bitmap skewing options, like “the points I’ve selected are on a horizontal/vertical line/at an angle of X degrees, then the bitmap would also be applied this transform.

It would be a nice feature to be able to create an isometric projection of a bitmap.

In the same way as the Pen tool has a drop down menu, would it be possible to have an option to configure the layer list in the same way. I am trying to create a bit more drawing space and it would be good if I could dock the layer list in the top of my window and only take up a single row space!

I think it would be useful to add a note to the Application preferences dialog window, to explain to the user the difference between ‘Application and Drawing’ preferences and how it effects drawings in QCAD.

1027QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRectangle with a 3 point determination ...Assigned
0%

Many times I’m faced with the situation that I have to use a rectangle related to other entities. Dimensions/Angle = unknown.

We have in QCAD a rectangle tool with a two point diagonal determination but this is limited to two points and it will only work in a horizontal and vertical direction.

My feature request is based on the idea to draw a rectangle with 3 points - regardless the angle.

1. First point: start

2. second point: determination of the first side (width?) and it will also provide the angle for the rectangle

3. third point: determination second side (height?)

I’m asking for an additional new tool? No - just as an option to the existing rectangle tool ...

1009QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLayer Order is Alphabetical vs the Order Defined Origin...Assigned
0%

It would appear that when QCAD imports a DXF, it reorders the layers into alphabetical order (at least when importing R2011). I have not tested this extensively but on other programs, the order is different from alphabetical. Ideally the operator should be given a choice to order the layers as exported (assuming the DXF format remembers that) or alphabetical. This is because a drawing may have a certain stack up of layers (like a printed circuit board) and then alphabetic ordering is not useful nor desired.

1005QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMaking use of mouse buttons configurableAssigned
0%

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.

Absolutely love the new options for adding the measurements in the current drawing.

I would like to see an additional option for only adding the text and not the lines also, maybe a simple check box would suffice here.

Of course at the moment I am able to use the property editor to select only the lines and move to a new layer and hide!

Hi,

With the new block attribute feature available in QCAD 3.3, there’s little to be done in order to make QCAD a good environment for typesetting circuits and other diagrams. In particular, the only killer feature that lasts is support for connectors: orthogonal lines that connecting one endpoint to another creates a connection line; when the concerned entities are moved the connection line is re-arranged. I’d like to know whether commercial support for this feature is available.
