 677 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Incorrect rendering of the drawings with the dwg2pdf to ...Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Incorrect rendered faltering types of lines with the dwg2pdf tool.
Some of them: “DOT”, “DOT2”, “CENTER2”, “BORDER2”, “DASHDOT2”, “DIVIDE2”, “DASHED2” and others.
Lines are drawn by the “compressed”.
But when exporting through the menu “File” → “PDF Export”, lines are drawn as expected!
I attach two files as an example.

P.S.
Excuse me and “Google Translate” for my English :)

720QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLocked Blocks ....Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

It is nice that I can scale or rotate a block - but right now I see also a big plus in a kind of locking function for Blocks.
It would be nice to have a “locked” option ad least for the scaling of blocks.

Example: Think about Clives “Radiator ‘Cover’ screen” http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=2060 and how you could manipulate this screen with “scale blocked blocks” ;-)

770QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowPolyline tool to delete segments between two nodes, lea...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

I guess this is a case of wording and wrong expectations.

The polyline tool “Delete Segments between two nodes” removes nodes, but not segments as the title and the icon suggests.

I propose to rename it to “Delete Nodes between two nodes”.

A tool which actually removes line segments from a polyline, leaving gaps, could indeed be useful to some users.

I think of a straight polyline with several segments. Then I remove some segments. I end up with a polyline with “holes” in it. Now I could stretch that polyline and all the remaining segments and holes stretch proportionally. Could be handy some times.

0%
1 Task Description

If I work in QCAD only with Toolbars (and not with the “Cad Tools” there is nowhere a Button to find for “Create Block from selection”.
If I have to create a Block based on a selection I have to work with the Menu or have to activate the Cad Tools.

But, if I look at the Blocklist menu there is a function (+) to add an empty Block. It would be nice to have this button working for both situation - empty Block or depending on a selection to “Create Block from selection”.

Or alternative an additional Button ... :-(

Anyway - in my opinion would that make the “Blocklist” complete. :-)

776QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowExtra ' isometric' buttons for using Line from Angle.Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

When working with the isometric grid (in any projection - Top, Right, Left) and drawing from ‘scratch’ as it were, without using the projection tools - I find myself using ‘Line from Angle’ the most.

It would be extreamly useful to be presented with two extra buttons when using this tool, a 30 degree button and a -30 degree button, this way I wouldn’t need to keep typing in the angle difference here.

786QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMulti - Breakout toolAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

A ' Multi ' Breakout tool or added option to the existing Breakout tool.

For example see attached image.

An option to remove all segments within a chosen boundary would be good, in my example I want to remove all the hatching within the Red circle.

So after exploding the Hatch, currently I have to remove all segments singularly!

Of course I could have placed the circle first and hatched around it - but in this and most instances it is easier to design and to produce the Hatching first and then place my circle/shapes etc.

 796 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Pasting to current layer results in empty layers being  ...Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Initial situation:
A drawing with two visible layers: One for the outline and one for hidden lines.
A second empty drawing with the standard 0 layer.

The bug:
When copying the objects from the first drawing and pasting them to the current layer of the second drawing, both layers present in the first drawing are created and are empty. I suppose that’s not the way it was intended. I expected the selected objects being pasted to the current layer and NO extra layers being created.

- ellipses (when major point changes)

817QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSnap and cut all intersection in a given area tool ...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

As we all know - from time to time - it is a lot of work to prepare a part of a drawing for a hatch.
To get rid of one of the basic task (cutting lines along the desired hatch boundary) it would be nice to have an add-on - or what ever - what would cut ALL intersection in a drawing (or just on one layer, or just based on a selection etc.) with just a mouse click. Then it would be much faster and easier to do the selection for the hatch boundaries.
The user could decide to make it directly in his drawing or he like to duplicate the drawing to an extra layer where this function will be used ....

Clive mentioned on this:
Maybe a tool like this could be an additional ‘Snap’ selection option - select all snap intersections or select snap intersections within a boundary! then as you suggest ‘cut’ at the intersection points.

823QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd Midpoint Handles to Lines and PolylinesAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

The Midpoint Handles should be used to move Polyline Segments and lines. This would add easy to access stretch functionality.
Combined with a shortcut(hold down shift or alt etc.) to fix the movement to be orthogonal to the line this would bring a lot of extra value.
It would also be possible to to have another shortcut to easily insert nodes to Polylines (again hold shift or alt etc.)

0%
1 Task Description

Provide configuration option to raise / lower maximum reference points that are shown for selected entities (currently fixed to 1000).

Original report:

Imported a spline-dxf from adobe illustrator. Converted the spline to polyline with explode command. Then no anchor points / vertex points / vertices were showing anymore. Simplified the polyline so that it had less than 1000 points. Vertices became visible.

I think some freeform objects need actually more than 1000 vertices. Also them need to be edited. Please increase the amount of vertices showing to biginteger

 877 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Patches to build QCAD 3.2.0.0 on FreeBSD Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Hello,

The attached patches are used to build QCAD on FreeBSD.

Notes:

- patch-shared_app.pri adds a dependency to libexecinfo. It is marked as fixed in  FS#876 , but still there.

It could be useful also for the other BSDs.

- patch-src_3rdparty_opennurbs_opennurbs_system.h remove malloc.h. It is marked as fixed in  FS#875 , but still there.

- patch-src_3rdparty_3rdparty.pro, patch-src_core_core.pro, patch-src_core_math_RSpline.h and patch-src_entity_entity.pro allow to use opennurbs as a dependency from the ports system, which is the recommended method, but you may ignore them in the general distribution sources if you prefer.

- patch-src_core_RSettings.cpp is specific to the ports system (”/usr/local/share/qcad” is not really hardcoded, and modified according to $PREFIX at build time): you may ignore it if you want.

Best regards,

Th. Thomas

923QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDiagramming (Intelligent Orthogonal Connectors)Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

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.

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!

100%
1 Task Description

If I “Trim Both” a pair of lines which already meet, then neither line changes appearance on screen (as expected). However, after saving and reloading the file, both lines are now missing.

To reproduce:

  1. Create a new drawing
  2. Draw a 10×10 square
  3. Save the drawing
  4. Close and reopen. The square shows up as expected.
  5. Use the Trim Both tool on a pair of lines meeting at one of the corners. No change in the display.
  6. Save the drawing
  7. Close and reopen. The lines used in step 5. have disappeared.

If one or both of the lines changes length, either lengthened or shortened, then the changed line is preserved.

 1096 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow SVG import: support scale transforms Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Add support for scale transforms in SVG import.

Original report:

When importing an SVG created with Inkscape, one of the elements (rectangle) is shifted (mirrored?) to the left.
The example (back.svg) is appended. If you open it with Inkscape, you see the rectangle should be above the “USB” label.

My impression is that the sign of the X coordinate is swapped for some reason. At least if I mirror it
using two points on the Y axis, it seems to appear where it should be.

Apart from this, also the dimensions are wrong after import. In the original SVG, the outer shape is 144.3mm wide.
This is also visible in the header of the SVG:

 width="144.300mm"
 height="53.800mm"

However, after importing to QCad, the width is measured as 40.7247. This is a puzzling factor of 3.5433 which doesn’t look
like metric/imperial conversion issue but like a complete misinterpretation of the sizes/units used in the SVG.

1099QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd Leader with text and number bubbleAssigned

1100QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd drag dimension (snap) along dimension lineAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

In Autocad when making a dimension when left clicking to place the dimension there is the possibility to drag the dimension to either side of the dimension. This is also possible with Qcad dimension, but it losses the snapping and does not extend the dimension line out to the dimension text.

This is very useful when the two lines the needs a dimension are close together, or overlapping with another.

Attached is two images one for autocad and one for Qcad

1102QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRay reference pointAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Using a horizontally/vertically ray means always I have to use a preset Reference point which is 0° for the horizontal Ray and 90° for the vertically Ray. The Reference point Option Box is deactivated.

It would be nice to be able to choose by myself between a Start and End Reference point like the vert./horiz. Line options.

The Linetype Names in the pull-down menu for Layer are hardly readable - it seams to me that the description is used twice (in different ways) in each row.
Till 3.6.4 the Information was short and clear.

 1125 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Property Editor / Total angle of an arc Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Hi,

if I have an arc and use the Property Editor to get the Geometrical information I always miss the total angle of the arc.

Yes - I have the Start and the End angle but to get the Total angle I have to draw construction lines to be able to use the Angular Dim or Info angle tool /or I need to use a pocket calculator ...

It would be nice to have this calculated by QCAD - I assume it can’t be that difficult to design an extra field which will display, based on the start and end angle, the total angle of an arc.

What do you think?
