Task Description

When using the ‘Cylindrical’ isometric tool, the projection does not draw to pre-selected layer in the layer list. This is only achieved when changing the layer in the property editor first. Have not tested this with other projection tools.

Original topic: “ugly text strings in a draught, after Visio 2003 AutoCAD file conversion”

Hello!

I have a Visio2003 mnemonic, and I tried to convert it to AutoCad file format (interchange and other), but this conversion makes ugly any text string in a result draught, like this (look at the attached QCAD.png):

 "\fArial|b0|i1|;Насос шнековый (для откачки осадка)"
 "\fArial|b0|i1|;сборный" 
 ... and so on.

I tried to open result draught in a DraftSight - it works with strings fine, there are no ugly string on the screen.
If I try to open CAD files created by DraftSight in QCAD 3.4.6 - I have an ugly text strings too.

A process of manual corrections of this ugly text strings in QCAD is very very laborious, I think, you need to make a some new instruments to automatic conversion strins like this “\fArial|b0|i1|;сборный...” to strting “сборный...” by checking some postions in your new instruments and clicking “Apply” button.

Thanks.

 1039 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Text dialog memory leak Closed

Task Description

Qcad under linux appears to be suffering a slow memory leak to the point it chomps 1.8GB on my machine and the swap grinds to a halt.

Can you advise what system info you need and I will get.

Stop QCAD, give it 20-30sec to clean up and its back to normal.

Looking over the past 30 min in System Monitor, Startup 0.1GB, 30 mins in, 1.2GB, close all tabs open (3 off) and back to 1.1GB.

 1053 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Part Library: support for custom properties Closed

Task Description

If a part library file contains a block with block name==file name, QCAD could directly insert the file contents instead of grouping it into a new block with block name==file name.
This would allow part library items to contain block references with custom properties which would be copied into the drawing on insertion.

 1061 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Polygonal / Rectangular Marquee Tool ? Closed
100%
Task Description

Defining hatch areas at present is time consuming as you have to create an additional layer and amend as necessary to create a boundary. What would speed up this process is a multi function tool to create a closed boundary line that could be used for fills and hatches or to delete specific areas from a drawing. This tool could have the following sub menu:

* Polygonal Selection
* Rectangular Selection (Use with modifier key to keep square)
* Circular / Oval Selection (Use with modifier key to keep round)

Each tool could have the following options:

1. New selection
2. Add to selection
3. Delete from selection
4. Intersect with selection

This tool would be invaluable for speeding up work-flow, simple actions like trimming lines could be achieved with a simple selection and backspace to delete etc. Please give this some consideration, this could be a great amendment to QCAD !

Task Description

I have a .dwg file, which has two images attached. When I open this file in qcad from the source folder with images xrefs are lost and qcad doesn’t even report about lost xrefs.

Is it possible in general to open .dwgs with xrefs in qcad?

How to fix it?

Thank you in advance!

 1065 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Display artifact with Ray/XLine Closed
100%
Task Description

Git d0eaf0, Linux/FreeBSD, Qt 4.8

Start up QCAD, *do not pan or change zoom level*. Draw a Ray or an XLine so that it (its extension, in case of Ray) goes through (0,0) and is 45 degrees (ie. draw y = x).

In this case and this case only, the Ray/XLine will be reduced to a line segment exactly between its start- and end points. It seems that this is only a visual artifact: if you pan or zoom now, the segment will be restored to what it’s supposed to be.

If you change zoom/pan back to what it was at startup, the artifact re-manifests itself.

Some flashes indicate that there are some other positions, not just the initial view, that also bring this up (ie. if you pan to a specific position, artifact appears again; it’s probably deterministic, too, but I can’t seem to be able to stop at that exact point while panning so I could count or something).

If a chosen hatch contains points, the hatch will use the point display set in the Application/Current drawing preferences, this leads to incorrectness with certain hatches.

 1072 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Resolve Relative paths on command line Closed
100%
Task Description

I have aliased qcad to run it from terminal. There is a small glitch when opening a file from a different location using relative path names:

$ alias qcad
alias qcad='/opt/qcad-3.6.0-pro-linux-x86_64/qcad'

$ cd /a
$ qcad some.dwg &
$ cd /b
$ qcad other.dwg

Import Error is shown:
> Can't open file
> /a/other.dwg.
> File is empty.

$ qcad /b/other.dwg # absolute path works

$ readlink /proc/pid-of-qcad/cwd
/opt/qcad-3.6.0-pro-linux-x86_64

Qcad somewhere stores the path, from where it is first launched. The next “launch” will not use the next location but refer to the first one when constructing the full path name of the file name in the argument.

Maybe that can be easily improved (the message is wrong too).

 1091 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh Qcad-Pro 3.6.3 Repeatable crash when using mirror tool  ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Under OS X 10.9.4 I often experiencing a crash with QCad-Pro 3.6.3 when using the mirror tool. It’s repeatable to roughly 90% , just do it a few times and it will crash.

In this report I have included the crash trace from OS X as well as a simple example DXF file (a house gate) which can be used to repeat the crash. Just do a vertical mirroring a few times and the crash will happen.

It usually happens more if you choose “Keep original”

While not quite a showstopper I would consider this something that really needs fixing ASAP as it could mean data loss (which happened to me).

QCAD start,

Select now the Dim - activate the ISO Tool - the try to determine the reference point fails / it’s way of the clicked point and now the produced ISO Projection will use the attributes for DIM’s from the “Application Preferences” setting - hmmmmmmm, not as expected :-(

 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.

Task Description

Line weight in exported pdf is sometions wrong. Example, create a polyline closed figure and hatch it with style GRAVEL, then export to PDF.

I’d try to use my qcad today, but cliking the qcad icon had no use. Opened an terminal window and executed whatever was in the icon properties, and it said segfault. Yesterday it worked. There have been an update inbetween, bash have been updated among others.

I’d have dumped uname -a to an file and enclosed it.

I’d have set the severity to critical, cause I’m not able to start qcad at all.

Please ask for any information you need.
