 7 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh layer list not cleared when closing drawing Closed
Task Description
  1. new drawing
  2. add layer named “layer 1”
  3. close drawing

the layer list still shows 2 layers, “0” and “layer 1”, but should be empty

 8 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Text Dialog: custom text height broken Closed
Task Description

Custom text height cannot be set (enter closes the dialog, tab does not activate the entered text height)

 9 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow RSettings.setValue() doesn't work for "GraphicsViewColo ...Closed
Task Description

Context: Needed to set color settings for book images.

RSettings.setValue("GraphicsViewColors/BackgroundColor", new RColor(0xff, 0xfe, 0xfd));
RSettings.setValue("GraphicsViewColors/MetaGridColor", new RColor(0xff, 0xfe, 0xfd));


MetaGridColor  =@Variant(\0\0\0\x7f\0\0\0\aRColor\0\x1\xff\xff\xff\xff\xfe\xfe\xfd\xfd\0\0\0\x2)

Setting the alpha channel value and the color mode for RColor doesn’t change anything.
Using view.setBackgroundColor() instead works for the background color, but not for other colors such as the meta grid color.

 41 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium dimensions: tolerance shown twice after block insert Closed
Task Description
  • File “ExampleDrawings/data/dim_aligned.dwg”:
    • upper limit: 0.01, lower limit 0.02 → correctly shown
  • choose “Generate Example Drawings” → the element “aligned dimension” (with limits set) shows 0.010.01 now, since both label and tolerance limits are set (according to the property editor):
    • label: <>\S0.01^0.02;
    • upper limit: 0.01
  • same for lower limit
  • “Generate Example Drawings” inserts the drawings as blocks
