100%
Task Description

qcad-trial-bin requires gcc-4.4.4, but I have gcc-4.4.5, so QCAD fails to start.

 210 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Pasting a block form the library browser changes drawin ...Closed
100%
Task Description

I noticed like this:

in a block pasted from the library, text would be under differently coloured lines, although it should be above them, and this does not look nice.

Drawing order inside of a block should not be changed by a paste operation, not?

 213 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Edit Block from reference, how get back to the original ...Closed

It might be an oversight from my side, but when I do Edit Block from reference, I don’t see how I can go back to the original drawing.

 214 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Adding dimensions to circles or arcs in a block Closed
100%
Task Description

In previous versions I was able to add a diametric dimension to an arc or circle that is part of a block in the overal drawing.
When I try this now, the pogram resonds “Entity is not an arc or circle” the radius dimension gives the same error.
This is unfortunate, because typically dimensions are on another layer in the overal drawing.

 217 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow SVG export ignores exportPoints setting Closed
100%
Task Description

Both SvgExporters ignore the exportPoints setting. Attached patch takes care of that. To be applied from within the “scripts” directory.

Nitpicking in File/SvgExport/SvgExport.js, var properties is meant to be a plain Object instead of an Array, isn’t it?

 221 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow autocad dwg compatibility Closed
100%
Task Description

DWG files created with QCAD display really fine now in autocad. There are only two minor issues for ACAD users:

1) ACAD complains, that they were not created with a licensed application. One may not be able to work around that one...

2) ACAD complains, that the file does not specify a codepage. For this one, there should be a way around, shouldn’t it?

I am very happy with the compatibility in the new QCAD. Thank you very much for all the efforts that went into it!

 222 QCAD (main)Bug ReportCritical MacOS X Lion Installation problem Closed
100%
Task Description

Installation problem.
After uneventful installation on MacOS X Lion 10.7.1 on a MacBook Pro Core I5 the QCAD will not launch by clicking into the app. When trying to launch the application by the command line I received an error message regarding the “plugin” folder, as follows:

al:MacOS everaldo$ ./QCAD
application directory: “/Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/MacOS”
working path: “/Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/Resources”
plugins folder does not exist

Renaming the folder from “/Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/PlugIns” to “Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/plugins” solved the problem.

Regards.

 223 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow No return to main window after opening a block window. Closed
100%
Task Description

I have a drawing imported from 2.2. I have tried to edit a block and the block window duly opens. However I can’t get back to my main drawing window. In the earlier version I could select a main drawing window. The window menu did not offer any other window to select. The window shown in the list was the name of the main file and clicking on it did nothing. The Tile and Cascade options worked but showed no other windows.

 227 QCAD (main)TaskLow Library browser as separate tool Closed
100%
Task Description

Split up library browser as separate, QCAD independent tool.

TODO

- Potential interaction with other products / release as separate product?

DONE

- Remove DB dependency from QCAD 3.
- start-up splash screen
- avoid drop in browser widget
- app name
- menu (exit, about, preferences)
- preference dialog
- fix app icon
- window title
- library browser as single app
- raise window to the top on start

Motivation

- Make QCAD 3 more reliable to start.
- Make QCAD 3 faster to start (if library browser not used).
- Reduce memory usage if library browser not open.

Interface with QCAD 3

- Launch Library browser from menu or tool button.

QCAD launches library browser for example as:
./QCAD -autostart scripts/Tools/LibraryBrowser/LibraryBrowser.js

- Insertion of library parts with drag and drop (like so far). No change should be required for this (?).

 234 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh File completely erased/corrupted; then duplicates upon  ...Closed
100%
Task Description

I have been working with a file in 2.2 which I then opened with beta 3. All seemed to be well for a couple of days. Today the application closed itself. When I restarted and tried to load the file it came up duplicated. One tab showed nothing, the other showed my drawing with blue lines and the tab headers (file name) were identical except that the ‘blue line’ tab had an asterisk after the file name indicating that the file had been changed. Highlighting a ‘blue line’ element showed the properties with colour white.

I’m running 64bit Ubuntu 11.04. ‘Blue line’ file attached. Any quick way to change the blue lines to default white?

100%
Task Description

Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit.
Image imported into drawing in layer ‘pictures’.
Layer ‘pictures’ hidden.

QCAD 3 beta displays the image when zoomed out so that the whole drawing is visible within the working window.
It ‘disappears’ when the zoom is taken in such that the drawing exceeds the window display.

When the layer ‘pictures’ is visible the image behaves as expected, i.e. always visible.

 247 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow tab names sometimes shortened too much Closed
100%
Task Description

When many tabs are open, the name of contained drawing is not fully shown. One way that some mdi applications do, is to append the name of the active tab to the top window title, which is also useful in other ways. At least a tool tip with the full name of the file on the tab top was nice.

 248 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Drawing in print preview Closed
100%
Task Description

One can draw in print preview. If one does, QCAD starts acting confused, the model view gets restored with a fullbright white background.

Maybe best is to just disable all drawing and measuring in print preview?

 249 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Default Save Format Closed
100%
Task Description

It was nice to specify the default Format for saving files. 2010 is too young for distribution to unknown users, better use 2004 or so...

 250 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Scrolling in Property Editor changes List Box elements Closed
100%
Task Description

Bug or Performance Issue? I’m not sure but it regularly trips me up and is counter intuitive.

In the right hand window generally if you scroll in the pane the list of items moves up and down as expected. E.g. Layer List and Block List.

However in Property Editor there are drop down list boxes and scrolling in the Property Editor pane dangerously scrolls elements within any drop down list that the mouse pointer happens to alight upon. This can lead to inadvertently changing properties.

I propose that a drop down list should not scroll until the list is opened. Scrolling in the Property Editor pane should scroll the Property Editor contents.
