 1716 TranslationBug ReportLow Wrong plural forms in translations Closed
100%
1 Task Description

I found that words which has plural forms are translated in manner where only two forms are possible - like in English language. For example: “Object” and “Objects”. But other languages (for example Polish) very often have more than 2 plural forms.
There are also strings which use only one form (for example: “Reset label position of %1 dimension(s).”) but cardinal number placed in string point on more forms than one.
All these strings looks bad when translated and sometimes even in English. I mark most of them using comments:

 1708 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Layer > Select Layer: add feedback Closed
100%
Task Description

Win 7
Q-CAD 3.19.2

R-Click in Layer list
With a selection, selecting by Layer adds the Items on that Layer to the selection.
With a selection, deselecting by Layer subtracts the Items on that Layer from the selection.
This is not a bug in casu because this can be the intention of the function. Adding or Subtracting.

Intuitively ‘selecting by Layer’ to retrict to that Layer solely has only the desired effect if no selection existed before.
Deselecting by Layer with no previous selection should mention there was none to start with.
Selecting by Layer from an empty Layer should mention that nothing is added.

Faults are prone to make.

Selecting a Layer uniquely would be an interesting additional feature.

 1707 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dimension text size and arrow for imported drawings, wa ...Closed
100%
Task Description

A nasty bug that I posted some time in the forum that prevents QCAD to read properly the content block associated with dimension.

Here’s what is happening:
- every dimension entity in DXF/DWG is stored with a block representing its contents (or in fact, anything else)
- QCAD ignores that block and instead renders the dimension using the various sizes and properties of the dimension

 1685 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow LinuxCNC no longer works under CAM Legacy Export  Closed
100%
Task Description

On any version newer than 3.18.0 the LinuxCNC options under “Configuration” drop-down no longer work under CAM→CAM Legacy Export. As you can see in the attached screen shot, the menu line which would normally contain LinuxCNC is blank. Also, when LinuxCNC (Inch) and LinuxCNC (Millimeter) are selected, none of the Global or per-Layer options are available, it just says “No Global Options” and “No Layer Options” as you can also see in the screen shot. I think this is because both of these are derivatives of the main LinuxCNC configuration which is not working.

I have confirmed this problem with fresh installs (using the installer) on both Windows 10 and Debian testing

100%
Task Description

When defining block attributes, the default text alignment is center.

I changed this to align left and copied an attribute (ctrl + C) and then pasted (ctrl + V) fourteen times.

As I opened each one up with the editor to change the tag information, I noticed that every copied/pasted attribute definition had changed to align right.

I purposely set the first one back to align left and copy/pasted it a few times. Each paste had the attribute text set to align right again.

Task Description

Case:
Settings are:
General: Drawing Unit
Drawing Unit: Foot
Paper Unit: Inch
Measurement System: Imperial

Dimension Settings: Architectural

Issue:

I draw a horizontal line 12 units (foot) long,
Use then the Horizontal DIM tool and it will display a measurement of 1’ = false,

I draw a horizontal line of 2 units (foot)long,
Use then the Horizontal DIM tool and it will display a measurement of 2” = false,

I assume the input for the line length is handled from the DIM tool as inch and not as feet.

Blank QCAD template used as the start drawing.

Issue in Layout Block

Printing Color Black/White changed to “Full Color Mode”,
Default setting to use ANSI A will change to ISO A4 in mm regardless that the Paper Unit is inch and size ANSI A.
Unit is unstable when you change the format a few times. It will switch between mm and inch what can lead to a 8.5 mm x 11 mm Paper size (then called customized!) or 210” x 297” ANSI A4,

Paper orientation preset to Landscape is then Portrait in Layout Block

 1668 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low Text color of command line unreadable with KDE's Breeze ...Closed
100%
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.

 1662 QCAD (main)Performance IssueLow Select > Select Contour: slow for complex drawings Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi!

when working with files containing many not connected elements (non-poly-line elements) a double click can cause a coffee-break easily. The search for connected entities easily takes over 5 minutes on an up to date machine (i7@3.4GHz) with files that are pretty standard in size (2 or 3 MB file size ascii dxf). Adding an interruption-method would be suitable (for example by pressing escape).

attached a file with a polyline of 13000 entities and a second file with just everything duplicated. When exploding the polyline and double clicking an element it takes quite a while until all elements are selected. (this is not an extreme example, I had sometimes 10 minutes of waiting with slightly bigger files, accidently double clicking something).

also an improved algorithm for the search would help to speed up the selection. (e.g. divide the area in smaller parts, do the search there, or an option to search only in the visible view port of the document)

 1653 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dimension font configuration only loaded if drawing con ...Closed
100%
Task Description

This bugs me since a long time but I wasn’t able to reproduce it ..... till now!

My Dim Label font for new drawings (Application Preferences) is set to “Helvetica-Bold” Basically it was working just fine for new drawings but from time to time, after saving and reopen my drawing, the font was lost and replaced by “Standard”. No idea why!

Today I was playing with the new QCAD Feature “Default Template” and learned that I loose all the time my preselected font. QCAD ignores that my Template “Drawing Preferences” and also the “Application Preferences” are set to “Helvetica-Bold”. It will be replaced by “Standard”. Annoying! :-(

Ok, question was why it doesn’t happened with all drawings, all the time?
After many tests ....
The “old” blank Template opens with the correct font setting. If I use a Dim in the drawing and save it everything works as expected.
If I save the drawing without a Dim in it then the preselected Font will be replaced by “Standard”. It happens also if I delete all Dims in a so far proper working drawing - save and reopen it leads to the same issue. The Font will be replaced by “Standard”.

The new feature “your own Default Template” will not work regarding the Dim Label font in any cases - the template itself needs at least one Dim in the drawing to keep the desired Font.

 1644 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Crash on hide all layers button / mixed layers of diffe ...Closed
100%
2 Task Description

Hi!

it occorred to me now several times, that I have been working on 2 or more files simultaneously when suddenly on some operations layers from one file showed up in the other file. nothing was pasted when it happened just many files open, or few files with many layers in them. (about 100 layers, but sometimes also only 10 layers)
Today I disabled a single layer in one dxf (A) which caused all layers of the other dxf (B) to show up in the layer list (and the layers that should show up were all gone).

I knew this already from 2 more occurances and tried the best to undo all my changes in (A) before “emergency saving” (A). I closed one of the two dxf files (A), leaving one open (B). Everthing seemed pretty normal again. Then pressing the “hide all layers” button just crashed qcad without any message. That crash on “hide all layers” happened twice today). I can’t reproduce the crash right now, but will add details here when I find something. As far as I remember the bug occured already in qcad 3.17, but I’m now on 3.18.1

thanks :)

 1643 ECMAScriptFeature RequestLow Modify > Explode: make drawing order predictable Closed
100%
Task Description

Usecase:
Multiple entities ( for example polylines ) get exploded...

BUG:
the exploded lines have all the same drawing ids the old entities had, a consequence of this is that when one explodes and then exports to dxf file the line order get’s scrambled wildly
the exported order is “random”!

SUGGESTED FIX:
sort the selected entities by their id first then
after copying attributes ⇒ also set the order of the elements to the default order !
( see fix in sourcecode attached )
