 727 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium 100% CPU Usage with 3.0 Final Version. Closed
Task Description

I am continuing my testing on version 3.0 Final.

I noticed that, with 3.0 Final open, the service “syslogd” (on OSX Leopard PPC) does get CPU consumption up to 100%, making the machine unusable.

This has never happened with the RC2 version.

It’s possible to have a copy of RC2 while they investigated the problem? Unfortunately I have not kept a copy.

 489 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Application Preferences - Show Crosshairs not work. Closed
Task Description

In the “Preferences Panel” → “Graphics View” the checkbox “Show Crosshairs” not work. If it’s checked or unchecked the result is the same.

 633 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Default file type(s) can not be inserted by Visio 2010 Closed
Task Description

The R2010 DXF and R2010 DWG formats produced by QCAD 3 RC5 cannot be opened by Visio 2010.

Error message:
Cannot open file. The file may not be a DWG or DXF file, it may not be in a supported version of the DWG file format, or it may be corrupted. Check the file and try again.


  1. QCAD 3 RC5
  2. Visio 2010 with all updates installed

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open QCAD 3 RC5 and create a basic drawing. Save using the default file types (R2010 DXF or DWG)
  2. Open Visio and create a new drawing.
  3. Go to Insert tab and click CAD Drawing. select drawing created above.
  4. Observe error message

Additional info:

  • When I use Save As in QCAD 3 RC5 and select any previous file format, Visio can insert the drawing. The problem I’m seeing with this part is that on a more complex drawing, the spacing/alignment is messed up (items aren’t in their proper spacing).

Other observations with a more complex file:

  • If I open a R2010 versioned file in Solidworks and then save it back out as a dxf file again, Visio will properly insert the drawing with correct spacing/alignment
  • If I open the file in QCAD and then save as Drawing Exchange (*.DXF) it inserts properly in Visio with correct spacing/alignment.
  • If I open the file in QCAD and then save as Drawing Exchange R12 (*.DXF) it inserts in Visio but the alignment is off (similar to problem above).

File attached for reference.


 723 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Hatch "Solid Fill" no saved. Closed
Task Description

In the attached drawing (top figure) I created an hatch “Solid Fill”. I have saved, reopen and the “Solid Fill” is not present!

No problem (bottom figure) with other types of hatch.

It’s possible to have a workaround? Is urgent for terminate work.

Thank You.

 726 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Unable to save the windows layout. Closed
Task Description

I decided to go from version 3.0 RC2 to version 3.0 Final.

I opened the program and I tried to customize the layout of the various toolbars and panels “Layer”, “Blocks”, etc..

On the next reboot all settings are lost and QCAD presents itself as image attached.

How can I fix?
