 930 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Chinese font type saving problem Closed
100%
Task Description

Dear Sir:
I am an user in Taiwan. I need to use Chinese. While editing, the font appearance can be display in view port, but after saving-closing-re-opening, the font type is missing. For example, while I type Chinese with font type “B” or “C” and save the file, the font all become font type “A” with reopening and the “Main Font” selector inside “Text” dialog window is blank. I need to re-open “Text” dialogue window and re-select font type, then click the working view port, the display of text changes. Its inconvient. In previous version it’s ok. I can’t remember the exact version of well-saving-Chinese-font function because my computer is not in my house. It might be version 3.1.x. I don’t think it’s a major problem, but could you please deal with this problem while having time.

Task Description

I use a font that changes the characters of latin and greek to technical symbols.
http://www.fontspace.com/micronus/y145m-2009 The font is installed and working okee.
But in the text tool → special characters button → others I expect to see this modified character map but instead I see the standard unicode characters.
When I use a gtk tool gucharmap I can see the character map as expected.
Now it is really combersome to enter the special characters.

525QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowchange the printed symbol of pointsAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

in QCAD3 RC2 points were printed as crosses, in QCAD3 RC4 they are printed as (very little) points. I think this isn’t a bug but a feature. ;-)

It would be nice if one could change this behaviour / select the symbol of points.

Best regards - Stefan

Task Description

Change a quote value modify the drawing + link quotes with entities

In other words, makes quotes editable AND linked to entities.

  • Today in the properties, the value is read only. Being able to edit the value would modify the linked entity properties to fit the new quote.
  • Changing a property would change the linked quotes accordingly. Today, if I change a circle diameter which is quoted, the quote remain where it was and is no more relevant.

1469QCAD (main)SuggestionLowCartouche automatiqueAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Would not it be possible to create a kind of template for printing?
We draw our room without cartridge. The cartridge will automatically appear when printed. The scaling could be automatic so that it goes in the A4 and therefore also will post the scale automatically. The name of the play could be the file name, date last saved after it the rest of the information that would be to add somehow (material index, designer, ...).

Original suggestion:

Bonjour,

Ne serait il pas possible de créer une sorte de template lors de l’impression ?
On dessine notre pièce sans cartouche. Le cartouche s’affiche automatiquement lors de son impression. La mise à l’échelle pourrais être automatique pour que ca rentre dans le A4 et donc l’échelle s’afficherai aussi en automatique. Le nom de la pièce pourrais être le nom du fichier, la date du dernier enregistrement après c’est le reste des infos qui serait à ajouter je ne sais comment (matière, indice, dessinateur, ...).

 1286 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh Canvas flickers/flashes white when scrolling. Closed
100%
Task Description

When scrolling quickly, the entire canvas flashes white (some kind of video buffer issue?). This includes the rulers, but excludes the scroll bars and the corner fillet at the top-left between the two rulers. Frequency of flicker is linked to speed too - the more you scroll the fast the flicker.

I’ve marked the severity high - obviously this is not a functional problem, but the strobe effect is causing headaches and may have negative affects for people with illnesses triggered by flashing light. Even with the background set to white, the flashing is still severe - when the background is set to black, it’s unbearable.

Using a Mac Pro (10.10.3) with AMD FirePro D300 2048 MB graphics and dual displays. Happens on either of the displays. Was using an August 2013 build with the issue - just upgraded to latest build and have same issue. Didn’t experience this on previous/older Mac Pro (running 10.8), so suspect it’s an issue with hardware or OS version?

 1357 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Can't open files with special characters in their names Closed
100%
Task Description

When opening a .dxf file saved by QCAD with a name containing a special characters (tested with diacritics), it fails with the following message:

Cannot open file
'E:/tèst1.dxf'
Import failed.

How to reproduce:
1 - Save a file (content doesn’t matter, it’s the same with an empty file and a file containing data) using the name “tèst1.dxf” 2 - Try to open the file
3 - Error message

What is expected:
The file open.

Note that the problem doesn’t lie in the “save” step: the same file, once renamed to “test1.dxf” opens fine.

Hi,

One thing not in the v3 (but in the v2) is the ability to assign a layer to an entity by double click on the layer name (in the layers list)

On V 2 :
1 - Select entity
2 - Double click on the layer’s name

> then le entity is in this layer

On V 3 :
1 - Select entity
2 - Double click on the layer’s name

> nothing change

It’s useful to change it by this way, please make it possible in v3.

With multiple files open 4 of the 5 buttons of the Layer List Widget are acting on an other file that is open instead of acting on the file in focus.
in this condition only Add Layer YA acts on the file in focus.

Not easy to reproduce.
Encountered it more frequent
after copy with ref and pasting.
with more then 2 files open.
with similar drawing file names.
Did reproduce after several hopping between files.
Usually acts on the first open file but this can be different as in the example.

 944 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Build system: some dependencies are not rebuilt when ne ...Closed
100%
Task Description

As came up towards the end of  FS#892 .

What happens is a change in src/3rdparty/dxflib/src/dl_dxf.cpp does trigger a rebuild of release/libdxflib.a, but this does not, in turn, trigger a re-link of plugins/libqcaddxf.so, a (the?) consumer of libdxflib.a.

This causes partial rebuilds to be broken (I think I got puzzled by this earlier too).

How to reproduce: on a fully built tree, `touch src/3rdparty/dxflib/src/dl_dxf.cpp’ then `make’. Nothing but libdxflib.a gets rebuilt.
