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.

1369QCAD/CAMBug ReportVery Lowqcad-bin is trying to access non-existent /home/andrewAssigned
0%
Task Description

I experience long start delays. I’ve trace the problem to the fact that I have autofs automounting my home directories. However, an strace of qcad-bin shows the following:

execve("/opt/ribbonsoft/qcad/qcad-3.12.6/qcad-bin", ["/opt/ribbonsoft/qcad/qcad-3.12.6"...], [/* 87 vars */]) = 0

mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x7fd6194ad000

stat("/home/andrew/local/qt/lib/tls", 0x7fff4722f250) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/home/andrew/local/qt/lib/x86_64/libqcadecmaapi.so", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

open("/home/andrew/local/qt/lib/libqcadecmaapi.so", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat("/home/andrew/local/qt/lib", 0x7fff4722f250) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

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

Hi,

Using the Copy and Move command the [ ] Use current layer and attributes’ is confusing.

1227QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery LowAutoCAD skinAssigned
0%
Task Description

QCAD has a lot of features and buttons, probably more that the autocad I’ve been using. Therefore the learning curve is too slow. It would be a great boost for the program to have the possibility of having an Autocad skin, and it will attract many new users.

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.

1056QCAD (main)RefactoringVery LowDead and wrong code in RSPlatform.cppAssigned

Task Description

I am considering pushing the following diff:

--- a/src/core/RSPlatform.cpp

     cores = sysinfo.dwNumberOfProcessors;

-    cores = mpctl(MPC_GETNUMSPUS, NULL, NULL);
-#elif defined(Q_OS_IRIX)
-    cores = sysconf( _SC_NPROC_ONLN );
 #endif

(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?

 897 QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery Low New arc tool Closed
100%
Task Description

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.

The 3dConnexion Space Navigator would be wonderful as a pan and zoom control. I find it extremely useful in SketchUp and when I switch from that to QCAD am always disappointed to find it doesn’t work.

While full support for the buttons and such would be nice, just the ability to map the axis to pan and zoom would be wonderful.

 656 QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery Low Data should not be in programs directory Closed
100%
Task Description

QCAD2 offered the user to specify in the program settings where these directories should be/go, and took the first one in each list as default; QCAD3 only offers to enter auxiliary library and template directories and has no provisions for defaults.

All associated data (scipts, templates, libraries, patterns, fonts) is stored under the program directory, exactly where it should not be. Windows 7 and higher default prevent modifying the programs directory by redirecting the writes.
An extra user-input during the Windows install process would be in order.

QCAD3 should offer the user to specify any and all data directories involved (including the auto save), and make it possible to specify a default for each.
This list could be initialised with the installation defaults, or default to the installation directories when empty.

First of all, thanks for this wonderful product !

My issue : when I modify (at file level) some parameters like the number of decimals in cotations, or the linethikness of a calc, these modifications are lost after saving and reopening the dxf. It comes back to the default values. It is not the case for the colors for instance.

At your disposal for other informations.

 540 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low "pa" ("parallel") keycode triggers wrong action Closed
100%
Task Description

In the latest QCAD Community Edition source code (2.0.5.0-1-community), the wrong action is triggered for the “pa” keycode. Specifically, it triggers the basic draw line command. Here is the relevant code from qcadcmd/src/rs_commands.cpp, in RS_Commands::keycodeToAction:

  } else if (c==tr("li", "line")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;
  } else if (c==tr("pa", "parallel")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;

I believe this should instead be:

  } else if (c==tr("li", "line")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;
  } else if (c==tr("pa", "parallel")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLineParallel;
