Script code (SvgExporter.js):

Task Description

Context: Needed to set color settings for book images.

RSettings.setValue("GraphicsViewColors/BackgroundColor", new RColor(0xff, 0xfe, 0xfd));
RSettings.setValue("GraphicsViewColors/MetaGridColor", new RColor(0xff, 0xfe, 0xfd));


MetaGridColor  =@Variant(\0\0\0\x7f\0\0\0\aRColor\0\x1\xff\xff\xff\xff\xfe\xfe\xfd\xfd\0\0\0\x2)

Setting the alpha channel value and the color mode for RColor doesn’t change anything.
Using view.setBackgroundColor() instead works for the background color, but not for other colors such as the meta grid color.

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.

 1709 QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery Low Feature request: Add extra padding to textbox. Closed
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

 1668 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low Text color of command line unreadable with KDE's Breeze ...Closed
Task Description

I prefer the Breeze Dark color scheme as it find it less stressful on my eyes, however it’s unusable with QCAD where the Command Line prompts and responses are rendered as a very light grey on a white background. I believe the proper fix would be one (or both) of:

  • Make the Command Line area background follow the desktop scheme. (It appears that the text already does so, hence the light text, but since the background doesn’t it becomes unusable.)
  • Provide a configuration option for the text and/or background color used in the Command Line area.

Screen shots are attached showing both Breeze and Breeze Dark schemes.

1660QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery LowViewport in Model Space ...Assigned
Task Description

... I have the feeling that wasn’t the idea. I’m correct?

in Model Space, launch Add Viewport, determine the Viewport rectangle - when done QCAD will switch to a Layout Block.
Now in Layout Block, don’t(!) place the Viewport, switch back to Model Space and the Viewport is still attached to the Mouse pointer and you can place it in your Model Space. The source of the Viewport will then disappear.

 1659 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low File > Print Preview: does not always open / close prop ...Closed
Task Description

Drawing with Viewport,
in Model Space - launch Print Preview - Paper size and display ok,
change directly to Paper_Space - Paper size and display ok,
