 435 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium QCAD3 RC3 Windows XP - Stretch command does not appear  ...Closed
Task Description

The modify tools → stretch command does not appear to function.

The two attachments contain the source drawing (blackburne_engine_breather_0210A.dxf) and five screen shots (qcad3_rc3_stretch.odt) showing the steps taken to replicate the problem.

I have also performed a similar exercise with a Linux trial version 3.0 RC2 (OpenSuse 11.4) with the same result.


 442 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Library incompatible licence Closed
Task Description

Reading  FS#441  I fired up the Library Browser, which works fine here, RC2 from tgz on Ubuntu 10.04, BTW.

The freedxf.com drawings “horseman” and two “women” claim to be “Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0”. In my opinion, the “NonCommercial” clause does prohibit distribution in QCAD3, which is a commercial package. For a discussion see http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Defining_Noncommercial

 461 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium QCAD3 rc2 Opening DXF Created by 2.2.2 Block Position I ...Closed
Task Description

When opening a DXF created by 2.2.2 the block entities are sometimes not being drawn in correct position and orientation.

The following is seen on the console (Which I think is related)

Debug: importing entities in block ' “Sw1pwo” '
Warning: RDwgBlockReferenceImporter::import: block reference references invalid block: “*X15”

and also (which is probably not related)
Debug: importing entities in block ' “A$C6329746C” '

Drawing file shown.

This could be a bug in 2.2.2, but it would be nice to ensure 3 can pull in old drawings without us having to rework them all.

Any questions james at enrogen dot com.

 518 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Unable to use Library browser properly in RC4 Closed
Task Description

Hi Andrew

In Ubuntu 11.10 and Windows 7 everything so far is working ok in QCAD apart from the Library browser!

1.In Win 7-64 I can run the browser and make a new folder, but when I try to set the permissions/open the folder - browser crashes.

2.In ubuntu 11.10 I first uninstalled RC2 then installed RC4. QCAD program runs ok but this time when I try to open up the browser (not a new folder)I get an error message stating that I do not have permissions to open the first file (vehicle -I think!)in RC2? If I select OK in the warning window the warning just keeps on repeating the same message for the next and subsequent files until I quit it.

 530 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium sporadic unwanted close of QCad Closed

Using the move and scale tools, QCad sometimes (reason unknown so far) crashes in RC4 (never seen that in RC2).

 531 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Qcad stops working after selecting and moving an entity ...Closed
Task Description

I am a new user and bought qcad this afternoon.
Sometimes qcad stops working after selecting and moving an entity. it happens almost every one to two hours. twice until now.
I tried version that didn’t have this problem.

 552 QCAD (main)Feature RequestMedium autosave removing last auto saved file Closed
Task Description

I would like to see an autosave-option which allows to autosave, but which keeps only the latest autosave file (instead of all). So there would be autosave (if something crashes) but the hard disk is not filled up too fast.

 563 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Hatches and colors transformed in Q3 Closed
Task Description

To check compatibility for the same .dxf drawing prepared with Q2, I prepared 2 copies, one with a “_Q2” suffix and the other with “_Q3”. I managed to keep an operational Q2 system on the same Win7-HomeEditionPremium-64bits PC. As you can guess, I opened each copy with the relevant QCAD version.

In each version, I selected the same hatch layer and list here their properties along with a hardcopy of a display of a similar part of the hatched area, with blue lines showing the differences in hatching, apparently the density.
Q2 : Solid:False, Scale:3.00, Angle:0, Name:ar-brelm ; the color is described in its panel as 20,255,255 and 255,85,0 (left colum first from top to bottom).
Q3 : all identical values but Scale:0.78189.

Another comparison with a global view of the same drawing. Just notice how the hatching in the areas at the bottom are different (red lines). Also, I noticed that increasing the zoom let the hatching appear in the Q3 version instaed of the grey homogenous color, but the hatching in Q3 remains more dense than in the Q2 version.
Q2 : Solid:False, Scale:1.00, Angle:0, Name:ar-conc : color is a standard grey (0,0,128 & 128,128,128)
Q3 : Solid:False, Scale:0.246063, Angle:0, Name:AR-CONC : color is qualified as “custom” even with the same values.
Both have “centimeter” as drawing units.

Then I opened another Q2 drawing with Q3. I elected to hide all layers then to show all of them. And the color hatching of some aras were then modified. See 3rd picture with all black areas. (Just changing the layers shown or hidden was enough to not allow to close the drawing without a save...).

Than you for your attention or letting me know which setting can correct the differences.

 580 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Black color reverted to white color on each close Closed
Task Description


When I started Q3, I selected a White background in the initial dialog window. I opened a copy of a good Q2 file and saw that ALL entities with Q2 Black/White color where forced to be White. Andrew explains this as a mean to avoid unreadable items against the background colors. Remember I selected White as background ? I guess Black/White entities could be better kept as Black ?

Following Andrew’s advice, in Application Preferences =⇒ Graphics View, I unchecked the Auto correct black and white colors check box. The background settings is white. OK.

I went through a process of changing the White color for several layers to Black. I also had to change the color codes for the hatch areas. For instance, the hatch area layer “055_F_Murs” has “14-76-255 / 255-197-179” values in Q2. Why these values are auto corrected to “30-128-255 / 255-191-127” ?

After these changes, I saved the file, closed Q3 and opened the file again.

Catastrophique ! All “Black/White” layers were back to Black and the hatch colors were back to the “auto corrected” values.

Changing the background color to black then white seemed to solve the problem : the layers kept the Black color. Actually it was just an illusion.

Yesterday too much confident, I spent the whole day, modifying layers to Black, adding new layers also Black or custom color, checking the line weight (replacing the “default” (?) value of 0.25 mm with my preferred default value of 0,00 mm, I’ve posted on the forum about this) and so on. I saved the file, closed it.
To-day, nearly all layers have lost their colors :
- Black ones are again White,
- custom color are “auto corrected” as above for “055_F_Murs”,
- only the standard non Black/White colors are preserved, like Blue, Magenta etc.

At this point, I can’t continue using QCAD 3 with enough reliability as my color settings are always lost. This is why I qualify this bug as CRITICAL.
I don’t want to use a Black background or a Light Blue one. Why do you think all old “green on black VDU” were replaced with “black/color on white” displays, to begin by Apple ?

NB I already reported this but can’t find it in the list (maybe because I forgot to enter a summary ? No warning, happily I had a copy with Notepad), sorry for the duplicate.

 635 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium hatch fills wrong area, saving results in "Exception oc ...Closed
Task Description

Attached you’ll find a floor plan.

Trying to fill the walls (layer “KG_Wand”), the hatch does not fill them but the space inside the rooms.
Saving the file (with the wrong hatch) leads to

 688 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium QCAD3: Deadlock happens during text operation when one  ...Closed
Task Description

I just use QCAD3 for the first time. I work with OpenSuse 12.2.
After having unpacked the downloaded package, I am able to start QCAD3 with the QCAD command icon.
Check shows that i used the most actual version.
Obviously no further installation steps are necessary.
I am able to draw some lines, etc.
However, when trying to select a font, I recognized that the computer hangs at least for 5 minutes.
The CPU load is about 50%, and i am not able to move the mouse and to do anything else.
During this time, sometimes there is access to disk, sometimes not.
So, in order lo cancel the hanging, i must make a hard system reboot.
Before i have entered the font selection, i have tried to look into the help options.
However, It was not possible to get the FAQs and the QCAD forum, so i am not aware about similar documented problems.
I have looked after similar bugs, using the words ‘text, font’. No similar bugs found.

 706 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Part Library not displaying parts Closed

 707 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium segmentation fault on every start - after crash Closed
Task Description

I was drawing on a drawing done in qcad2 - and now working on it in qcad3 - where I had saved it in the new dxf 2010 format (if this has any relevance) and then the computer ran out of power (old battery - I missed that I hadn’t turned on external power) - and shut down hard.

When I rebooted and tried to start qcad - it crashed on startup - giving only this output:
Debug: TIMER: 42 ms - “loading plugins”
Debug: TIMER: 459 ms - “initializing plugins”
./qcad/qcad: line 38: 2955 Segmentation fault (core dumped) LD_LIBRARY_PATH=”$DIR” “$binary” $OPT1 $OPT2 “$@”

I then tried removing the entire qcad-3.0.0-prof-linux-alt-x86 folder - and unpackaging the install tar.gz again.

It then started up and came to initializing plugins - 79% - and just hung - I’ve attached screenshot.

After I ctrl+c’ed it - it segfaulted and now it won’t even show the startup splash again.

I’m guessing qcad has saved some state somewhere.. but qcad hasn’t made a ~klavs/.qcad - so I don’t know where it is.

I would very much like to be able to use qcad again :(

 725 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Inserting items from part library may create invalid bl ...Closed

 727 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium 100% CPU Usage with 3.0 Final Version. Closed
Task Description

I am continuing my testing on version 3.0 Final.

I noticed that, with 3.0 Final open, the service “syslogd” (on OSX Leopard PPC) does get CPU consumption up to 100%, making the machine unusable.

This has never happened with the RC2 version.

It’s possible to have a copy of RC2 while they investigated the problem? Unfortunately I have not kept a copy.

 739 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium QCAD fails to open a DXF file generated by itself Closed
Task Description

QCAD does not manage to load an DXF file created by itself (presumably, I don’t remember excactly, could be the last 2.x version). When selecting File ⇒ Open on the file in attachment, QCAD shows a pop-up reporting the following error :

Cannot open file
»‘/home/gillonr/Documents/Projects/Familly/Br.../Chambre Parents/Plans/Plan-PaterNoster.dxf’.
» Please check your access rights, the file format and file extension.

The file permissions are OK, there is no issue of disk space on the volume where the file reside or where the QCAD distribution is installed or at any other critical location. The problem does not happen on other files created with QCAD, so it appears to be data dependent.

The file causing trouble in QCAD can be imported in LibreOffice 3.4.2 w/o reporting errors (but that application does not provide the suitable methods / tools to edit this format...).

(1) Is there a way to activate debugging when reading in data from a DXF ?
(2) Is there some tool (ev. 3rd party) allowing to check that the data is clean ?
(3) Can someone identify the cause of the problem (presumably some data construct or maybe corruption) ?
(4) In case it would turn out that the problem is a QCAD bug, is there a work-around (I need these drawings...).

Task Description

Conversion of certain files leads to crashes (segmentation fault).


 875 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium malloc.h is deprecated Closed
Task Description

This concerns the third-party openNURBS project and should probably be reported there, but I failed to find a bug tracker or anything of the sort, so here it goes.

malloc.h is deprecated (it has not been required since at least SUSv2, ratified in 1997). Apparently FreeBSD takes a more explicit stance against the use of it than other systems. The attached patch does away with it in openNURBS (conservatively leaving it in on Linux, but that should not really be neccessary either).

This makes the openNURBS component buildable on FreeBSD (9).

 905 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Text tool regression Closed
Task Description

Happened somewhere between ab3e02 (works) and 67516a (doesn’t work).

In 67516a (current HEAD), when I attempt to launch the Text tool, the following is printed on stderr:

Warning:  Script Exception:
 "ReferenceError: Can't find variable: RTextBasedData" 
Warning:  "<anonymous>()@/tmp/qcad/scripts/Draw/Text/TextDialog/TextDialog.js:838"          

The Tool options toolbar does appear and it can be interacted with. The Text tool does not appear at all (and text input in the Toolbar can not be placed either).

In ab3e02, the Text tool works as usual.

Hope I got it right this time – several clean builds have been made to double-check results.

Task Description

When we create a draft in version 2.2.2 we put dashed lines and the length is 0. We see a dash lines. (see attach file).

When we open the same draft in the version 3.3.2 we don’t see the dashed lines we see a continous lines.

If I changed in the dxf this lines DASHED 370 0 per DASHED 370 5 and changes the preference of the drawing it’s work.

But we don’t want to open all of 180000 drawings to change the length of the dashed lines from 0 to 5. We want that the version 3 print the dashed lines as the version 2.

 966 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Print Dialog Print>Properties>Advanced is blank Closed
Task Description

Just started using v.3.4.2 under Linux Mint 14. To begin with I could not print my drawing in color. Worked out that this was due to the default printer setting (driver hpcups 3.12.6) which was Draft Grayscale. My drawing printed in color fine when I changed this. I believe that it ought to be possible to set this from within QCAD, but the dialog “Print>[printer]Properties>Advanced” is blank. Has it been disconnected somehow?

 973 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Drawing outside zoom limit Closed
Task Description

When a drawing is placed in X,Y coordinates QCAD is unable to zoom to the drawing.

We use X,Y coordinates like X=182,635,000 mm Y=579,005,000 mm for the location of the constructions.

If you use Auto Zoom you get to see a small dot on the screen but as soon as you try to zoom to the drawing QCAD jumps within a certain limit and you can’t get to the drawing.

 993 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium QCAD fails to load drawing with message: maximum recurs ...Closed
Task Description

Since today, QCAD fails to load my drawings, with the following error message in the console:

Warning: RBlockReferenceData::getBoundingBox: maximum recursion depth reached: block: “Drukknop”

The block in question is the AREI (Belgian standard for symbols in electrical installations) symbol for a “button” light switch.
It’s a small and simple drawing (see attachment).

I’ve added a lot of these buttons in the drawing since the previous version, but there were some already present, and this never caused problems.

 1118 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Text not saved Closed
1 Task Description


I am stage manager and I have been using QCAD PRO nearly every day for 2 years now.
But since yesterday it seems that text is not saved within the file : when I reopen a saved file, text doesn’t show up. Do I miss a setting ?
I currently run Mac OS X Mavericks but there haven’t been any issues with this OS for months.

I deleted the app and prefs and tried out with 3.6.0 (which I don’t use because it often quits brutally), and also the free version of 3.6.4
But the issue still the same.

As I use this app for my work, it is very annoying not to be able to use text !
Thanks for your help

 1123 QCAD (main)Performance IssueMedium Hatch in block causes performance problem Closed

Hatches in blocks cause poor performance while (auto-)snapping.
The lines that make up those hatches are included in the search for intersection points which is not desirable.

 1163 ECMAScriptBug ReportMedium DoveTail-script crashes QCAD Closed
Task Description


I just installed QCAD v3.7.5 and it works like a charm.

Then I installed the DoveTail-script (http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/download/file.php?id=623) and after that QCAD won’t start anymore.

This is the output on the command line in Linux:

Don’t know whether that is a bug in the script or in QCAD, so I am reporting it here.


 1164 QCAD (main)Feature RequestMedium make selected layer default parent for new layer Closed
1 Task Description


I would like to suggest a small, but yet important improvement to usabilty.

When adding a new layer the currently selected layer should be default for parent layer.

Currently a new layer is by default a top level layer, and so the user has to select the parent layer for each sub-layer, again and again.
