 1733 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Open DXF just written by qcad crashes qcad  Closed
100%
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

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

Clive

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.

 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:

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

 1685 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow LinuxCNC no longer works under CAM Legacy Export  Closed
100%
Task Description

On any version newer than 3.18.0 the LinuxCNC options under “Configuration” drop-down no longer work under CAM→CAM Legacy Export. As you can see in the attached screen shot, the menu line which would normally contain LinuxCNC is blank. Also, when LinuxCNC (Inch) and LinuxCNC (Millimeter) are selected, none of the Global or per-Layer options are available, it just says “No Global Options” and “No Layer Options” as you can also see in the screen shot. I think this is because both of these are derivatives of the main LinuxCNC configuration which is not working.

I have confirmed this problem with fresh installs (using the installer) on both Windows 10 and Debian testing

100%
Task Description

When defining block attributes, the default text alignment is center.

I changed this to align left and copied an attribute (ctrl + C) and then pasted (ctrl + V) fourteen times.

As I opened each one up with the editor to change the tag information, I noticed that every copied/pasted attribute definition had changed to align right.

I purposely set the first one back to align left and copy/pasted it a few times. Each paste had the attribute text set to align right again.

Task Description

Case:
Settings are:
General: Drawing Unit
Drawing Unit: Foot
Paper Unit: Inch
Measurement System: Imperial

Dimension Settings: Architectural

Issue:

I draw a horizontal line 12 units (foot) long,
Use then the Horizontal DIM tool and it will display a measurement of 1’ = false,

I draw a horizontal line of 2 units (foot)long,
Use then the Horizontal DIM tool and it will display a measurement of 2” = false,

I assume the input for the line length is handled from the DIM tool as inch and not as feet.
