528QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFont Editing Assigned
0%
Task Description

Dear Sir,
I have noticed that in QCAD 3 rc4 it is not possible to open and edit font files.
This feature exists in version 2.2 and is indispensable to people using not common languages.
For example the unicode font does not have all greek characters, so I have added a few of the missing ones by editing the unicode.cxf font with version 2.2.
I kindly ask the designers to consider enabling this capability again.
Thank you!

533QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowKopierendes/Ausschneidendes Rechteck (Kreis) Werkzeug ....Assigned
0%
Task Description

In meiner Vergangenheit habe ich in anderen CAD Programmen mit folgendem Werkzeug gearbeitet was ich für Detailansichten, Bereinigungen oder ähnliches extrem Hilfreich empfand. Wäre schön wenn es so etwas auch in QCad gebe.

Werkzeug: Man zieht ein Rechteck (oder Kreis) über einen gezeichneten Bereich auf. Alles was innerhalb oder außerhalb des Rechtecks liegt wird kopiert/ausgeschnitten/gelöscht und auch direkt an den Linienkanten des auswählenden Rechtecks geschnitten.

Momentan kann ich ein Rechteck für Selektion bestimmen - muss aber dann nach einer Kopie alles manuell trimmen, löschen etc. um nur den gewünschten Rechteckinhalt zu bekommen ...

554QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAuswahlbox sollte auch mit der Shift Taste Bereiche dem...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Ziehe ich mit der Maus eine normale Auswahlbox kann ich Elemente markieren.
Möchte ich einzelne Bereiche wieder herausnehmen muss ich alle Elemente einzeln anklicken (mit gedrückter Shift Taste).
Ich kann zwar dies komfortabler gestalten mit der Select → (De -) Select Contour Funktion welche aber erst über das Menue aufgerufen werden muss.

So wie ich einzelne Elemente mit der Maus auswählen und mit der Shift-Maus Funktion deselektieren kann wäre es schön wenn die Shift Taste auch bei Auswahlbereichen direkt zum deselektieren eingesetzt werden könnte.

564QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSettings organisation in levelAssigned
0%
Task Description

As an old professional “documentation writer and user inteface designer” but IMHO, I’m not convinced that the “Application preferences” are correctly organised for ease of understanding and using them.
These settings are organised in 2 levels. Some of the first levels have their own settings (e.g. “Graphics view”) while most others don’t (e.g. “Load/save”). May I humbly ;-) suggest some consistency rules :
- no sub-level if there is only one subject
- no items on main level if there are already 1 or more sub-level(s).
For instance :
- sub-level “Default Dimension settings” under “Dimension” is the only sub-level : then move these items under main level “Dimension” and suppress the sub-level ;
- the items under “Graphics view” main level (with several sub-levels)could be in a sub-level named “General” ;
Actually, “Graphics view” main level is the only one which has both its own items and sub-levels ;-))) ?

Task Description

Since this is not supported by Qt anymore, this would likely have to be implemented from scratch.

588QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowBemaßung Prefix Dropdown mit eigenen Vorgaben erweitern...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Es wäre Arbeitserleichternd wenn ich bei den Optionen für Bemaßungen (Prefix/Postfix) eigene Präferenzen speichern könnte so das diese in allen Zeichnungen von mir verfügbar wären.
Zudem wäre es wünschenswert dieses nicht nur bei den Prefix sondern auch bei den Postfix Angaben nutzen zu können was dann alle(?) Manipulationen erschlagen würde.

596QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowTool "Lengthen" mit "Total" erweitern oder ....Assigned
0%
Task Description

Eine oft Hilfreiche Zeit/Klick sparende Erweiterung wäre eine “Total” Option bei dem “Lengthen” Tool.

Aktuell ist es mit dieser Funktion möglich ein Element zu verlängern oder zu verkürzen um den Amount X. Der Referenzpunkt (von welchem Ende) kann bestimmt werden.

Die Erweiterung die ich mir wünschen würde wäre auch ein “Total” um ein Element auf eine bestimmte Länge zu bringen ohne einen Taschenrechner benutzen zu müssen. Referenz (welches Ende oder Mitte) sollte (muss) dafür wählbar sein.

Die Funktion “Property editor” stellt bereits über die Geometry Eigenschaften die Möglichkeit zur Verfügung einen “Total” Wert zu manipulieren. Leider bin ich aber hierbei nicht in der Lage zu bestimmen welcher Element Referenzpunkt dafür benutzt werden soll. Könnte ich die Referenz wählen (welches Ende oder Mitte) wäre auch dies dann durchaus akzeptabel ;-)

601QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFür Berechnungen neu zu erstellende Elemente Werte von ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Es wäre schön wenn ich Werte wie zum Beispiel Längen von Linien direkt abgreifen könnte um diese weiter in Berechnungen verwenden zu können.

Beispiel:
Ich habe eine Linie konstruiert wobei sich eine Länge y ergeben hat.

Nun möchte ich eine Linie zeichnen die 5 mal y sein soll.

Linientool → Wert 5* eingeben und y durch Auswahl mit der Maus von dem vorhandenen Elements übernehmen.

Natürlich könnte ich die Geometrie Info benutzen um den Wert abzulesen oder auch über die Zwischenablage zu benutzen. Ein abgreifen mit der Maus wäre aber schneller, direkter und wahrscheinlich auch mit weniger Fehlern (Human error) verbunden. Wahrscheinlich auch genauer da QCad, denke ich, mit mehr Nachkommastellen rechnet, oder?

604QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMeasure and record X,Y coordinates tool - add to info ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Feature request
See topic - http://www.ribbonsoft.com/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=2015

Just a thought, but one that could be useful for machinists in particular - a measurement tool that can snap to a point as per usual, but then just displays the drawing coordinates in X and Y. This could be expanded to the dimensions tool set, so that you can click on a point and print the coordinates next to it.

631QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOption "Scale" für das öffnen von Templates ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Wenn ich eine Zeichnung plane überlege ich mir natürlich im Vorfeld welche Blattgröße und welchen Maßstab ich verwenden möchte.

Wenn ich Templates (z.B. Zeichnungsblatt A4) für die Blattgröße öffnen könnte und dabei direkt einen Skalierungsfaktor (z.B. 10) vorgeben könnte hätte ich ohne Umwege gleich alles was man braucht. In diesem Fall ein A4 Blatt im Maßstab 1:10.

Im Grunde genommen das selbe was ich bereits mit Library Items machen kann ... ;-)

637QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowViewports / View ListAssigned
0%
Task Description

1. The Scrollbars for each window in the Viewports has the same size like the normal used scrollbars for windows. If you are working on a normal size Monitor it “steals” a lot of “working space”. Is there any possibility to make the scrollbars smaller or just a line to separate the windows so that I have to navigate with Keyboard and mouse?

2. I thing the Viewports and the View List belongs together - is it possible to get a button in the “View List / Tool Bar” to choose a Viewport style instead of “walking” the long way over the “Drawing preferences” Menu?

639QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAbility to load a file of keyboard shortcutsAssigned
0%
Task Description

It would be useful if a file of keyboard shortcuts to commands could be loaded.

Then a set of shortcuts identical/based on the Autocad keyboard shortcuts can be loaded, making it much easier for Autocad users to migrate to your product.

There does seem to be some future functionality planned here, with the shortcut ‘scheme’ selector in Program Preferences, but for the moment ‘Qcad’ is the only option available.

This strategy is used to great effect by Draftsight (but who trusts a big company like Dassault/Solidworks...)

648QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowConfigurable behavior for line patterns at weight 0.00Assigned
0%
Task Description

A line with linestyle = dots and line weight = 0.00 appears in model space overly spaced, all other lineweights behave as expected.
Suspect other linestyles to behave in a similar fashion.

See attached drawing.

Suggested fix: use the same scaling for lineweight 0.00 as for lineweight 0.05.

670QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowConfigurable rendering options for stacked textAssigned

Task Description

Customer wishes that stacked text used as subscript is rendered differently (i.e. increased text size, lower position for subscript).
This may also apply to superscripts.

703QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowInfo function -> contour for Hatch not closed ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Task: If I like to make a hatch and the contour isn’t closed I get a Grey circle Info where the contour isn’t closed. Nice!

But ..... I have this Info only for ONE not proper connection and only for the moment when the mouse pointer is over the Hatch Tool Symbol.

If I have to zoom into the Problem - I will lose the Info where the problem is :-(

To get the “Problem Info” back I have to select it again - but for that I have to zoom out ............... ;-)

It would be nice to have this “Problem Info” longer in the drawing - maybe until I solved all problems.

And it would be nice to have ALL Infos for not connected lines at the same time. It is not really helpful to repeat this function 20times if I have 20 connection problems ... ;)

719QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLibrary Browser additional Function ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

It would be nice to get:

In the Create Library Item task → “Save as” a remember Function for the last chosen Path to save the Item ... or a default path what is the same like the settings in the Application Preferences.
Right now you have to navigate again and again for every item what you will save in the same directory. If you have to save 20 items - it sacks ;-)

Also would it be nice for an easy “Clean up” to have the possibility to delete items directly in the Library Browser window.
Right now you have to use extern Programs like the Windows explorer to move or delete items.

724QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowUseless reference point entering when moving relativelyAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,
this is a usability feature request:

If you want to move an object relatively to any point (e.g. by entering @x;y in commandline) it does’nt make sense to enter a starting reference point. Of course this is possible by clicking to any location on the screen. But it’s difficult to change between mouse and keyboard so often.

It should be possible to enter a “don’t care” or “any” reference point by pressing a keyboard shortcut (e.g. enter like in AutoCAD).

Thx

764QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLinks to Data sheet, Part List ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Most of our drawings have a Data sheet, parts List, cutting list, description etc etc on a pdf, world or excel file.

It would be nice to have a link possibility directly in QCAD to those files what will be saved with the drawing.
Like the bitmap function without displaying the files in the drawing ...

787QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowHatch generator - plug in tool?Assigned

Would it be possible to make a Plug in tool for a Hatch generator, so custom made hatches can be saved as .pat files?

I have a lot of up and coming future projects that I would like to make my own ‘custom’ hatches for.

790QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDimension Setting - Extension Line - total length setti...Assigned
0%
Task Description

It would be nice to have the option for a “Short” Extension Line.
This is often used in Architectural drawings.
Yes, I know that I can explode a dimension and change it to that what I’m asking for - but that is really a Sisyphus task and destructs the function of a dynamic Dimension in QCAD.

792QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew 'Match' properties toolAssigned
0%
Task Description

To add a new ‘Match’ properties tool.

For example, I have a large drawing with lots and lots of entities on various layers and I want to select some entities (say 500 or more) which are all on different layers and change all these selected entities to match the properties of one other particular entity - but, but I want the ‘Matched’ entities to remain on their own layers.

OK, of course I can use the property editor for this and this is fine in most instances but I would first need to determine the the layer data for the properties of the entity I would like to match to (Color, Line weight and Line type) in the first place and then I need to remember these attributes in order to change things in the property editor in order to change all of my selection to match!

As I say mostly the above procedure would be fine to use but for convenience it would be great to have a new tool to do all this for me and cut out a few steps in the process.

A new ‘Match’ properties tool procedure could be something like this:

1. Select Match properties tool.

2. Select all entities to be matched.

3. Select entity to match to.

4. Tick or leave un-ticked - move to same layer.

5. Complete process.

* Actually, while writing this I`ve just thought of another useful addition which could be added to the Info tool set, ‘Entity’ properties info!
Example - click on Info > Entity Properties and click on the entity in question and then the properties are displayed without going to the layer data for this!
Just an idea ;)

802QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowUser defined toolbarAssigned

Task Description

It would be a nice feature to be able to define your own toolbar.

See: http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=2393

805QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowCreate tool radius compensation / tool path generationAssigned
0%
Task Description

This is how I would implement this:

This would be a modification tool. Parts are selected, a toolpath is generated, and a dialog pops up to allow putting the tool path into an existing layer, a new layer, or replace all drawings in an existing layer.

This is how the toolpath is generated:

We iterate through all elements and explode everything but text into line segments. Then we connect the line segments into chains wherever the line endpoints are less than some tolerance away from each other. The chains can be very chaotic, but at least we have separate entities for now.

For every chain, we need to find the largest complete loop. A good drawing would only contain non-overlapping loops, but we can’t expect that. Everything that is not on this loop can not be defined as a part or as a hole, so we will merely create a tool path segment that is equivalent to the line segment. Every segment that *IS* on a loop is either an outside edge (part outline), or an inside edge (hole outline), (or overlapping, in which case it is neither, and we have an operator problem).

In a perfect world, we need to find exactly which shape is inside which other shape, and then create alternating tool offsets from the outmost loop (part edge) to the second outmost (hole), to the next (part) etc. .

In a simplified world, we can used the bounding box of the loop instead. This works OK for rectangular shapes, but a circle next to an “L” shape could be seen as inside the L’s bounding box, hence inside the L, wrongly accused of being a hole, not a part.

Now all that is left to do is to create a new loop, offset by the tool radius. Oh, and since we have the connections from line segment to line segment in the correct order already, we can use the opportunity to order all cutting loops from inner to outer, or from small to large, and order non-loop edges by travel distance.

The new drawing in the new layer can now be exported without further hassle to create a nice laser cut file.

PS: of course, a user could create multiple layers for marking, cutting, enraging, etc. . Additional Layer attributes for cutting speed and laser power (and a few more) would be needed.

813QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew Snap tool: Isometric coordinates ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

It would be nice to have an additional Coordinate tool for isometric constructions.

If I’m working on an isometric drawing I have to design my things with x, y, z coordinates.
Y is, of course not a problem but for x and z I have most off the time to work with construction lines for move, copy, locate etc.
With an isometric coordinate snap tool what will follow the 30° angles for x and z we could save a lot of construction lines ;-)

829QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdditional options for the Info Tool Area ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

The Info Tool Polygonal Area is a helpful tool ... but I like to ask for additional options ;-)

Yes, the polygonal area makes absolute sense but many times you have just to check a square or rectangle area!

It would be nice and time (click) saving if we could use a “Strg Key” to limit the polygonal area to just a rectangle area.
Two mouse clicks for a rectangle area and done ;-)

In addition to that it would be nice to have the possibility to count up or down a couple areas.
E.g. I measure area 1 plus area 2 or area 1 minus area 2 ...
Maybe just with an additional keystroke like + or -

832QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd shortcut to fastly enter ortho modeAssigned
0%
Task Description

When drawing or moving objects holding down CTRL should activate ortho snapping as long as CTRL is pressed.

If ortho mode has been active before holding down CTRL should deactivate it (for the time it is beeing pressed).

833QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMove number of copies into Options toolbarAssigned
0%
Task Description

The Number of Copies (Delete Original, Keep Original, Multiple Copies) and whether to use the current layers attributes should be found in the Options toolbar of the active tool.

This way the option would be set before or during the operation (preview?)the popup window afterwards would be obsolete.

836QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMerge different Offset tools into just twoAssigned
0%
Task Description

Merge Parallel Line(with distance), Concentric Arc(with distance), Concentric Circle(with distance) and Offset(Polyline) into one generic Offset with distance tool that if possible also works for ellipses and splines.

Do the same for the “through point” tools so that there also is just one Offset through point tool.

The Offset tools could be located with the Modification tools.

859QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowPersistent selection button added to tool set.Assigned
0%
Task Description

It would be useful to have a persistent selection button added to the ‘selection’ tool set.

This would allow the user to set persistent selection as and when needed for the current drawing one is working on, rather than going the long route through the ‘Application’ preferences dialog.
