Task Description

Having a multi selection and at least one ‘older’ arc the startpoint indication in red of some entities might disappear.

Entities that suffer from this are:
Other arcs
Polyline
Splines

Only the ‘oldest’ arc in selection will have a startpoit indication.
Multi selection of ‘newer’ entities from the list above will not if an ‘older’ arc is part of the selection.
Deselecting de ‘older’ arcs will reveal the startpoints up to the ‘oldest’ arc.

In the file provided entities where drew in order from left to right.
Select all and start deseleting arcs from the left.

The behaviour is affected by changing the draw order property and a save/close/open.
In the second file the rightmost arc was set to draw order 7, the same as the 4th was.
After save/close/open it is renumbered to 8 and the behaviour is different as in the firts file.

The ruler functionality is compromised by Graphics View / Grid settings.
To show the full Ruler functionality “Automatic scale grid” has to be activated. I think that is not intended behavior.

 1792 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dimension > Angular: transformations broken Closed
100%
2 Task Description

(I originally described the problem in the forum: https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=5721 )
(The problem was also reproduced by user “Husky” so it not installation specific.)

I have a model where one of the details is as shown in attachment 1

However, when I create a viewport and display the part in the the layout the angular measurement is another. See attachment 2.

In the model it should be noted that the part displayed is a detail copied with a different scale as to Zoom in on a detail in order to put dimensions on it. It was created by copying a part of the model and pasting it back in the model but with 3x zoom.

I have also included the full .dxf file in the hope that it helps you both reproduce and fix this issue

Note: The same problem seems to also produce “ghostlines” in other viewports in the layout which is not present in the model. Removing the angular measurement also removed the ghostline. You can observe the issue by looking at layout2 and you can see a line (dimension layer) going from top right corner of the viewport towards the lower left. This line is not present in the model and appears to be some strange extension to the angular dimension the detail that is just to the top right in the model.

Macbook Pro 15”, OS X 10.13.6

0%
1 Task Description

Hi Andrew,

we know that you need to have always software performance in your mind to decide which features / tools can / should be implemented and on which way.

I really appreciate your effort to find the best middle way between software features and performance but I think also it’s a tough call to appraise worldwide the overall customer equipment to make the software workable to the best for everybody. That isn’t possible without compromise.

Maybe it would make sense to think about a new dialog in the “Application Preferences” to let the user decide what kind of feature are absolutely needed regarding to his/her work-task / equipment. I don’t mean that you need to cover every single thing but the main “performance jeopardy’s” should be covered with an on/off switch.

Yes I know - that isn’t done in 5 minutes but I think that can make your life easier in the long run and will cover even more customer.

Just my two cents. ;)

 1783 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow RArc::splitAt(): fails in some cases Closed

Task Description

RArc::splitAt() works wrong in some cases.
To reproduce execute this script:

            var arc = new RArc(new RVector(0, 0), 100, Math.PI*2, Math.PI/2, true);
            var points = [];
            points.push(arc.getPointAtPercent(1/3));
            var arcs = arc.splitAt(points);
            if (arcs.length == 2) {
                qDebug("OK, arcs count:", arcs.length);
            } else {
                qDebug("FAILED, arcs count:", arcs.length);
            }

            arc.mirror(new RLine(0, 0, 0, 100));

            points = [];
            points.push(arc.getPointAtPercent(1/3));
            arcs = arc.splitAt(points);
            if (arcs.length == 2) {
                qDebug("OK, arcs count:", arcs.length);
            } else {
                qDebug("FAILED, arcs count:", arcs.length);
            }

The first case split in two arcs, but the second splits in one arc only.

I think the reason is the code in RArc::splitAt():

        ...
        if (RMath::getAngleDifference180(a1, a2))*radius()<0.001) {
            continue;
        }
        ...

The RMath::getAngleDifference180() return angle between -pi and pi so absolute value should be used.

I very much like the new middle mouse button zoom in/out and congratulate Andrew for implementing it so quickly but there’s an annoying delay that is necessary between successive zoom in/out actions.

With the keyboard you can repeat zooms as quickly as the keyboard repeat rate allows; with the middle mouse button quick zooms are not possible.

 1771 QCAD (main)Bug ReportCritical Open file bug: QCAD fails to open a file with space or  ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Description:
QCAD fails to open a file with space or special characters in its name or in its path.
Special characters are “á”, “ç”, “Ê”, “ß”, “+” etc.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a file named with spaces or with special characters or a file inside a folder that is named with spaces or with special characters.

What happens
- Warning about import error and file is not opened

What would be the correct behavior
- The file would be opened


I have used QCAD for a long time waiting for developers to correct that issue, that happened with all versions QCAD I used.

It was a trivial behavior for programs in Windows to manipulate files and folders with spaces and special characters. That issue is like the conversion method is too old, like from MSDOS 8.3 limitations.

The people that just want to open a DXF file to work face with that issue and thinks “that QCAD does not open DXF files”, and give up using that software. I gave up in the past because that. I discovered that QCAD works fine with MSDOS 8.3 format, and I created a script to rename files and folders before opening them, but it is not for everyone.

As QCAD works well with open DXF format, I think it is a important software to eliminate DWG dependency. Also, I think it would be very simple to solve that in code and very important to correct it.

I do not know if DWG trial plugin avoid that issue.

100%
1 Task Description

‘Create From Segments’ ‘OG’ includes and admits selection of segments on locked layers.

A)
-When selecting a segment on a not locked layer it can include segments on locked layers that connect to the string. (Assumed wrong)
-A copy of the segments on the locked layer(s) are included in the polyline. (Assumed wrong)
These segments are not removed from the locked layer(s) because of their locked nature. (Intended behaviour)
eg. ‘OG’ & selecting the arc at point A in the example file. The arc is on a not locked layer.

B)
-When selecting a segment on a locked layer it will fully remove segments that connect to the string on not locked layers. (Assumed very wrong)
-Connecting segments on the locked layer(s) will not be converted to a polyline because of their locked nature. (Intended behaviour)
eg. ‘OG’ & selecting the line at point B in the example file. The cyan lines are on a locked Layer.

Both A & B can be undone.

The example is a part of the ‘Skewing project’.

1765QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery LowErrors with polyline offsetAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Win 7 32 bit QCAD 3.20.1

Ofsset of a base-line with arcs results in massive ammount of errors.
Most of them occur as a cluster of very tiny segments and are part of the offset. (zoom far in at the red circles)
Mostly they occur where the offsetted arcs should merely be trimmend pairwise.
Some occur as detached entities or as detached strings of entities very near the offset (strings not documented).
Spooks occur at opposite site when base-line is not closed.
360° curls can occur with R = Offset.
Null-entities may occur (not documented, hard to find and not able to copy).

The base-line is checked and sound and has mixed tangentially or not tangentially connected arcs.
Offsetting the mother base-line of the base in the file has similar effect but not all and/or different ones.
Also encountered with offseting polys from fonts.
Used to define pocket paths for CNC.
Detected because the CNC driver will not accept Self-crossers, Null-entities or open ends depending on the settings.

Work arround is to explode and select small entities but this does not solves the issues.
1) Choosing the tolerance large enough will detect small segments that should stay.
2) Recombining will generate new ones at the place where the main segments remain crossed.
Cleaning up the paths is a daunting process with some thousand segments for several offsets.

I assume this has an infuence on the CAM part of QCAD too unless the offset method is different.

 1764 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Zoom in with middle click Closed
100%
1 Task Description

I would suggest adding a feature Inkscape has, which is that a single middle click zooms in. This is not at the detriment of panning, since the mouse/pen (I use a Wacom tablet) doesn’t move. Right now middle click doesn’t do anything so I don’t think it should be a problem.

Another awesome and related Inkscape zooming feature is that Shift+middle click shifts to window zooming. But with the added bonus that you don’t lose the tool you’re in. Try it out on Inkscape if I’m not clear!

 1756 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Polyline area wrong if polyline contains arc segments Closed
100%
Task Description

The area of polylines with arcs can be incorrect.
With only line segments it is correct as far as I can check.
See <Poly-line Area.dxf> ; <Poly-arc Area.dxf>

It does not depend on the quadrant their in nor with what point the start point is.
It is related with the oriëntation.
Flipping or mirroring horizontally induce the error.

Modifications like flip, move & copy may induce another error that locks the oriëntation.
It is noticed that the oriëntation property in the editor does not change anymore when reversing.
Although locked the value of the area property switches between good and wrong.

The master poly in question is a part of an arc and a part of an ellipse exploded 1024/full.
These where recombined to one poly with ‘Create from selection’ and are closed.
Closed as per the last vertex does not point to the start point, logically closed I presume.
The purpose is to sum the error surface for the skewing math.
For now I will use my common sence to distinguish what value is the correct one.
Reversing while found faulty is the solution.
