1660QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery LowViewport in Model Space ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

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

Case:
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.

Case:

Print Preview off/on or launching/canceling Drawing Preferences will solve the display issue.

 FS#1604  was issued because of non-intuitive hierarchy of the preferences for the Explode function.
The task comment recieved explains the funcionallity in details not found elsewhere.

Indentation of the phrase ‘Spline Segments:’ suggest hierarchy.
Graying out the drop down box for the number of spline segments establish hierarchy.

1518QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery LowLandscape/Portrait gets confused for custom page sizeAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hello

In the Print Preview or Drawing Preferences / Page Settings if I select a Custom size, then landscape/portrait does not really make sense.

For instance, at work we have a laser cutter which uses a printer driver. The bed of the laser is 600 wide by 300 high. When I wanted to cut
something, I created a custom page size of 600×300 and selected Landscape (because it is wider than high)

Strangely, back in the Print Preview, the page is now sized opposite with regards to Portrait / Landscape mode, which was confusing somewhat.

(see pictures attached)

I think that for ‘Custom’ page size in Drawing Preferences, the option of Portrait or Landscape should probably be ghosted

Then, I think that for Portrait / Landscape mode in the Print Preview, it should display the shape most appropriate, rather than just assuming that the document fits the norm:

  1. Taller than Wide for Portrait mode
  2. Wider than Tall for Landscape mode

Hello,

I’m unsing a two display environment and got all Tools and Widgets placed on the second display.
See qcad1.png

There are two problems:

1.) When I open another application on second display, three toolboxes stay on top, the others are behind new application.
See qcad2.png

2.) When I minimize Qcad only the mainwindow will be minimuzed, all the toolboxes and widgets stay on second display also with problem 1.
See qcad3.png

Whould be great, when this issues will be fixed :-)

Thank you very much
Andreas

1375QCAD (main)SuggestionVery LowInstall in hidden folderAssigned
0%
Task Description

After each update, I add a dot before the ~user/opt folder (and in the program launcher) created by QCAD to unclutter my file manager’s appearance. Would be easy, I think, to make the installer put the program directly in ~user/.opt, and nobody would miss that folder while browsing through daily used files.

And what about installing the program as root, so all users of a computer could use it without personal installs, and only personal setting files created by users would be kept in ~user/.opt/qcam.

Since there is no “andrew” user here, I have to wait for automount to timeout which takes about 2m and is rather annoying.

1071QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery Low(Bitmap) scaling convenience optionAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

This can be done as is in QCAD today, but a quick convenience UI bit would be much appreciated.

Suppose you are working off a bitmap image (transcribing old scan, or you got your apartment’s floor plan like this, because, uh, what tenant needs DXF). It has dimensions markers and everything, but fat chance it’ll be to actual CAD scale after importing.

So, to bring it to scale, you measure between two tick marks on the scale, compute ratio based on measurement and what’s written on the dimension line, and do a scale operation (you can also have QCAD compute the ratio by using math expression, whatever).

That works fine.

A purely just for convenience function to do that would be much appreciated: pick two points, enter what the actual distance between them is, poof bam, appropriate scaling operation is applied.

As a twist, there could be some other bitmap skewing options, like “the points I’ve selected are on a horizontal/vertical line/at an angle of X degrees, then the bitmap would also be applied this transform.

(truncated list to manage size)

I see that most of this was put in there as a kind of a note-to-self originally, however _SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN is implemented by every realistically possible targets anyway, so for all practical purposes, this is dead weight.

A couple of questions remain, though:

  • #ifdef Q_OS_WIN32 should probably be Q_OS_WIN, so as to include win64 as well.
  • Assuming the real purpose for this function is to determine how many parts a particular task is to be split into in the future, if and when QCAD gets the need to split expensive tasks among multiple CPUS, “core” probably shouldn’t be static - CPUs are hot-pluggable today, and while one probably doesn’t do that on a laptop, it’s not unfeasible in, say, a VDI environment.

Thoughts?

While constructing around the lack of “Line tangent to a circle, perpendicular to a line” ( FS#881 ) which I hereby second :)), it struck me that it might be useful to have a tool that finds the center point of an existing circle/ellipse, or possibly more generally, the center point of an existing circular/elliptical arc.

 890 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low Relative zero point mark artifact on print preview Closed
100%
Task Description

The relative zero point mark appears on the print preview screen. I don’t know, if it also gets printed (my printer setup appears to be broken at the moment), but it does not get exported to PDF, so I guess it is only on the print preview.

On a side note, I think that the reset command (qq) should also clear this. The manual states:

The Neutral State of QCAD
Menu:    Edit - Reset
Keycode: QQ

After the start, QCAD is in its neutral state. That means that no special tool is active and QCAD waits for you to click a menu or tool button to start a tool and start doing something.

As there is no relative zero point just after startup, I think it should also not persist a qq.
