It would be very helpful if the library browser had a delete function.

I know that this can be very risky for some people, but it is the easiest
way to see clearly what you delete.

 916 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow SVG export: make zero line width behaviour configurable Closed
100%
Task Description

Somewhere in the 3.1 series the SVG exporter (both precise and PG) started to make lines that are zero (0) width in CAD 0.01 (@scale 1:1) points wide in exported files (0.1 @scale 1:10). I use such lines to constrain exported files to a common size and rather not have them show. In my view, this is a regression, as there is no reason for changing line weight, isnt it? If I wanted the lines to have weight, I’d draw them with a weight.

0%
Task Description

It would be nice and helpful if we had the possibility to control the order of Attributes - shown in the property editor.
I found a solution for myself with using numbers in the Attribute definition tag - but that isn’t really a nice solution.
If I could hide my numbering ... everything would be fine for me .... ;-)

923QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDiagramming (Intelligent Orthogonal Connectors)Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi,

With the new block attribute feature available in QCAD 3.3, there’s little to be done in order to make QCAD a good environment for typesetting circuits and other diagrams. In particular, the only killer feature that lasts is support for connectors: orthogonal lines that connecting one endpoint to another creates a connection line; when the concerned entities are moved the connection line is re-arranged. I’d like to know whether commercial support for this feature is available.

 926 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Splines: break up at point Closed

Break up spline at given point, break out segment, etc.

927QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFurther options for the 'Add Measurement' toolsAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Absolutely love the new options for adding the measurements in the current drawing.

I would like to see an additional option for only adding the text and not the lines also, maybe a simple check box would suffice here.

Of course at the moment I am able to use the property editor to select only the lines and move to a new layer and hide!

Task Description

XP/32

Circles: the scale works only proportional even though I have the options for x and y.
Ellipses: The same but if I play around with the x, y fields it will freeze the scale possibility.

100%
Task Description

A window with a drawing that has unsafed changes gets an asterisk appended to its name in the tab title. When there too many tabs the title gets shortened and the star cannot be seen then.

It was nice, when the star remained visible, after or in front of the ellipses.

Also it was nice, when the “windows” menu would mark files with changes in the same way.

 945 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Stretch tool for blocks ... Closed
100%
Task Description

It would be nice if we could use the Stretch tool also on blocks.

There are so many possibility’s to build a really good (time-saving) block-list /library with preassembled parts but if I have always to explode / ruin the block to use the stretch tool doesn’t helps the productivity.

951QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowExtra Option for Block attributes ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

It would be nice to have the possibility to control the automatic Text orientation in Block attributes.
Something what would work like the DIM restriction: I can read the text horizontal and/or from the right side of the drawing sheet.

Right now I have the feeling that the Text orientation is dependent on the tool what I even use.
Different tools = different outcomes.

952QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDimensions: manually control arrow positionAssigned
0%
3 Task Description

See drawing: I can’t seem to be able to manually change to the “To” variants – that is, override the decision of the label/arrow placement engine.

The circle in the attachment is a borderline example of when even just in this form I would more like it on the outside. If the drawing is crowded in that area, it would be even more useful to have it the other way around.

962QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDefault save / open directoriesAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Add the option to use a fixed path for the save to, open and CAM export directories.

(G code files are usually saved in on directory that the Control Program opens them up from so this would save a ton of mouse clicking)

964QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew tool request - 'Break Out Arc' from CircleAssigned

Task Description

It would be useful to be able to pick a Start and End point of an Arc within a Circle to then break this out. So in principle another break out tool.

Task Description

It would be nice to get a status information after the use of the “Search/Replace” tool.

Something like: “5 matches found and replaced”,
or
no “matches found”.

It helps allot to get an Idea what happens in your drawing. Right now the tool window will just disappear and you have no idea about any success.

 978 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow "Frequently used" items for text Closed
100%
Task Description

Just floating an idea, recently I’ve had to use the diameter symbol many times in texts. At this moment it’s a chore, as that usually means browser, look for a page with symbol in it, copy, paste.

I wonder if the text entry could have some sort of a box for “frequently used” characters (or even phrases, or whatnot, but I presume a handful special characters that everyone can tailor to their needs would already be a huge plus)? Like, a 3×3 to 5×5 matrix below the Alignment panel or something along these lines.

Task Description

Property Editor - Geometry - Custom - Add Custom Property

It would be nice to have in “Application preferences” the possibility to predefine a couple Custom Property Names.
Right now I use the Custom Property function to add a DIN and the Material info to every Block. This project has a lot of DIN parts and I have to type again and again the names DIN ... Material ... DIN ... Material ... DIN ... Material ... DIN ... Material ... DIN ... Material ... you got my point ;-)

If I have predefined Names - I have just to fill out the value :-)

 1003 QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLow QCAD Community Edition: add unicode support for layer n ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Community version (still on FBSD only), so dxflib. I suspect the culprit is dxflib.

I have created layers and blocks and whatnot with (hungarian) accented characters in their names.
Apparently (according to the Internet, as evidenced probably most glaringly by usa.autodesk.com /adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=7586582&linkID=9240617) the R15 DXF version assumes single-byte character sets being used. Quick grepping the DXF2000 mentions “String (255-character maximum; less for Unicode strings)” (Group Code Value types), so it may be a false track...

Anyway, the DXF file written does have strings converted to single-byte encoding, but it seems it’s always ANSI-1252. When the output encoder encounters a character that is not representable in this one, it will use a literal question mark.

Actual case, I have a block with the name

106 egypólusú váltókapcsoló jelzőfénnyel

Of this, “ő” (U+0151) is not representable in ANSI-1252, so what gets written to the dxf is (non-ASCII shown in hex)

106 egyp<f3>lus<fa> v<e1>lt<f3>kapcsol<f3> jelz?f<e9>nnyel

Note the literal question mark.

Now the problem is this is an irreversible operation but the result is perfectly valid ANSI-1252, so upon opening the file again, I will get a block named

106 egypólusú váltókapcsoló jelz?fénnyel

IMHO the ideal resolution is to

  1. Have a preference for the export code page (and use it, too, circumstances permitting)
  2. Iff this is not set (or set to a default “Use system locale to determine” or something), use a look-up table to take a good guess (like old QCAD2 qcadlib/src/engine/rs_system.cpp:QCString RS_System::localeToISO())
  3. If the output encoder encounters a character that is not representable in the target code page, throw an error with an option to ignore the error (and keep using question marks, but then this must have been acknowledged by the user so not silent problem anymore), pick a new output code page, whatever else

This all assuming the R15 doesn’t actually depends hardly on ANSI-1252 and ANSI-1252 only. In that case, option #3 would still be nice.

Most Western European languages (and English) are not affected by this as ANSI-1252 has most of them covered, but a little to the east, a little to the south, a little to the north, and it does make a bit of a difference :)

1005QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMaking use of mouse buttons configurableAssigned
0%
Task Description

According to the help, one requires a middle mouse to pan. Since few standard mice have middle buttons, this is a poor choice for this all important function. The default should be the right mouse button when ever the mouse is placed in an open area with nothing else to select. That way right click can still be used to invoke a pop down menu when ever the mouse is placed over an object that might have a need for pop down menu options. Additionally, the Pan mouse key should be alterable and selectable from a Preferences option, since if one does have a three button mouse, we should not prevent a user from employing this hardware if they have it. The same might be said for all mouse buttons to allow the user to configure the mouse operation to that which is most comfortable and efficient for their tasks.

 1006 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Making zoom in / out speed configurable Closed
100%
2 Task Description

Although this report is specific to Magic Mouse on OS-X Mountain Lion, since mice are a fairly common commodity across all platforms, I suspect this may be a more common issue across multiple platforms. The issue is that with my Magic Mouse, when I zoom into or out of the drawing by dragging my finger forward or backward on the mouse (equivalent of rolling the scroll wheel of a mechanical mouse), the zoom keeps zooming (in either direction) LONG after I have stopped moving my finger! Now, I do have my scroll speed set high because I have a large monitor and like to get around on it fast. But QCAD is the only application that does this exaggerated scrolling, so there must be some missing conversion or time constant issue going on here. I could change the speed of my mouse and that would likely fix it: in QCAD. But then all my other apps would be too slow with the mouse. Maybe there needs to be a custom setting in the Preferences that allows to user to set the mouse speed for just inside QCAD. But I suspect its more just a mouse speed parameter conversion error.

 1007 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Making zoom in / out direction configurable Closed
100%
Task Description

Maybe I missed it, but there does not appear to be a Preference selection for changing the zoom direction. The default is opposite the way it is on other programs and I would like to change it to be consistent between all my programs. My other programs provide this ability so I suppose I could change all of them, but that appears Orwellian on QCADs part.

1009QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLayer Order is Alphabetical vs the Order Defined Origin...Assigned
0%
Task Description

It would appear that when QCAD imports a DXF, it reorders the layers into alphabetical order (at least when importing R2011). I have not tested this extensively but on other programs, the order is different from alphabetical. Ideally the operator should be given a choice to order the layers as exported (assuming the DXF format remembers that) or alphabetical. This is because a drawing may have a certain stack up of layers (like a printed circuit board) and then alphabetic ordering is not useful nor desired.

 1012 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Make threshold from which arcs are approximated as line ...Closed

Task Description

Tried to draw a guitar and when drawing top arch (R=10600 mm), I noticed that when arc length is less than 5% (in ths case less than 530 mm) of arcs radius arc appears totally straight both in screen and print.
Data is stored right, details are right, reference points are right, snap on entity goes right, but the line appears totally straight.

I have iMac mid 2011 with Mavericks and latest Qcad.

I use points in my drawing s often for referencing and construction purposes, I would like to request that in the application settings some options could be added for point styles.
For example:

The option to set the size either relative to the screen or indeed in absolute units.

 1024 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Manage the layers of Inkscape Closed
100%
Task Description

When we want to import a document SVG of Inkscape, copies are not managed.
All the elements contained in the various copies find themselves in one and the same copy 0 in QCad-Prof.

It is necessary to convert the file SVG in DXF before being able to use him(it) in QCad.
It is impractical.

1027QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRectangle with a 3 point determination ...Assigned
0%
2 Task Description

Many times I’m faced with the situation that I have to use a rectangle related to other entities. Dimensions/Angle = unknown.

We have in QCAD a rectangle tool with a two point diagonal determination but this is limited to two points and it will only work in a horizontal and vertical direction.

My feature request is based on the idea to draw a rectangle with 3 points - regardless the angle.

1. First point: start

2. second point: determination of the first side (width?) and it will also provide the angle for the rectangle

3. third point: determination second side (height?)

I’m asking for an additional new tool? No - just as an option to the existing rectangle tool ...

In the same way as the Pen tool has a drop down menu, would it be possible to have an option to configure the layer list in the same way. I am trying to create a bit more drawing space and it would be good if I could dock the layer list in the top of my window and only take up a single row space!

These are the versions Ubuntu 14.04 comes with, and since it’s an LTS version, it will linger around a while.
