1743QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery LowAutozoom does not work when text contains superscriptAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

I have a drawing where I use text with superscript. In this case when I use autozoom, it does not work as I expect. It includes the 0,0 coordinates too. The problem also occures when I export the drawing into svg.

I attached an example, just use the autozoom.

Thanks,
Soma

Task Description

I am a new qcad pro user and created a simple drawing and saved as DXF R27 and closed the app. I reopen the app and open that DFX and the app crashes. However, I can import it. I suspect (without any evidence) that the text in the dimension of the drawing is the problem. Perhaps this issue is like #1261

Hi Andrew,

It would be good to have an option to be able to place the text to the left or right,maybe just a simple check box? please see attached screenshot to explain. In this instance (and I have to do this a lot ;)) I had to explode the dimension entity and rearrange the text manually :(

Many thanks

Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Just a little thing I noticed recently.

My default is set to save as DWG and indeed it does, however the auto-save feedback tells me that the file is saved to DXF, although it actually does save to DWG - no big deal but is this correct feedback?

Many thanks

 1726 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Layer property "for plotting" seems not working  Closed

Task Description

Deaktivating “for plotting” (German “plottbar”) while editing properties of a layer seems to change nothing. I expected, that in print preview (SVG, PDF) these layers are deaktivatet too.

Deaktivating in these cases make sense as when real plotting.

Hi Andrew,

Currently the only option to insert a viewport is using the central insertion point, for better placement it would be useful to have an option to insert viewports at any of the four corners in addition to the centre.

Hope that makes sense.

I’m not sure whether this has been added or suggested already. It would be great to have a built in QCAD table tool for producing cutting lists or bill of materials etc. A dedicated table tool would be a real boost to QCAD Pro ;)

 1716 TranslationBug ReportLow Wrong plural forms in translations Closed
100%
1 Task Description

I found that words which has plural forms are translated in manner where only two forms are possible - like in English language. For example: “Object” and “Objects”. But other languages (for example Polish) very often have more than 2 plural forms.
There are also strings which use only one form (for example: “Reset label position of %1 dimension(s).”) but cardinal number placed in string point on more forms than one.
All these strings looks bad when translated and sometimes even in English. I mark most of them using comments:

1709QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery LowFeature request: Add extra padding to textbox.Unlikely to be implemented
0%
Task Description

When placing text on a drawing you are offered with the choice of where you want the origin of the textbox to be. That’s very nice. Image 1 shows an example of text with top left origin. It seems there is already some top padding above the text.

Unfortunately there is no option to add extra padding to the other sides so the text is right to the left border of the textbox. To correct this you have to add some parallel construction lines and move the text a bit to the right. Now the text has nice padding. See image 2.

It would be nice to have some padding options when adding/editing text, like in web-design: https://www.w3schools.com/css/css_padding.asp

 1708 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Layer > Select Layer: add feedback Closed
100%
Task Description

Win 7
Q-CAD 3.19.2

R-Click in Layer list
With a selection, selecting by Layer adds the Items on that Layer to the selection.
With a selection, deselecting by Layer subtracts the Items on that Layer from the selection.
This is not a bug in casu because this can be the intention of the function. Adding or Subtracting.

Intuitively ‘selecting by Layer’ to retrict to that Layer solely has only the desired effect if no selection existed before.
Deselecting by Layer with no previous selection should mention there was none to start with.
Selecting by Layer from an empty Layer should mention that nothing is added.

Faults are prone to make.

Selecting a Layer uniquely would be an interesting additional feature.

 1707 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dimension text size and arrow for imported drawings, wa ...Closed
100%
Task Description

A nasty bug that I posted some time in the forum that prevents QCAD to read properly the content block associated with dimension.

Here’s what is happening:
- every dimension entity in DXF/DWG is stored with a block representing its contents (or in fact, anything else)
- QCAD ignores that block and instead renders the dimension using the various sizes and properties of the dimension

1705QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowConnect certain actions and layersAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

When dimensioning my drawings I always want the dimensions to be on the dimensions layer.
When adding text I want the text to be on the text layer.
When drawing an infinite line it is always a construction line, therefore I want it to be on the construction line layer.
When drawing a line segment it almost always is on my outline layer.

So I propose a new option to bind certain actions to certain layers.
Whenever those actions are selected the layer should automatically be switched.

I can imagine this being implemented in the General→Tool Settings menu, where the short cuts are defined.
