1645QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd warning when opening file with 3D contentAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi.

I’m working currently a lot with files coming from rhino. Qcad can open them properly any also most operations on them work as usual - except the selection methods.

box select from upper left to lower right works as usual.
double click to select all connected entities is broken. (only one entity is selected).
box select from lower right to upper left does not select entities touching the selection box. (nothing is selected)

on mac os nothing is selectable with single click.
on linux single click sometimes fails (nothing is selected after clicking on a line).

thanks for looking into this :)

 1644 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Crash on hide all layers button / mixed layers of diffe ...Closed
100%
2 Task Description

Hi!

it occorred to me now several times, that I have been working on 2 or more files simultaneously when suddenly on some operations layers from one file showed up in the other file. nothing was pasted when it happened just many files open, or few files with many layers in them. (about 100 layers, but sometimes also only 10 layers)
Today I disabled a single layer in one dxf (A) which caused all layers of the other dxf (B) to show up in the layer list (and the layers that should show up were all gone).

I knew this already from 2 more occurances and tried the best to undo all my changes in (A) before “emergency saving” (A). I closed one of the two dxf files (A), leaving one open (B). Everthing seemed pretty normal again. Then pressing the “hide all layers” button just crashed qcad without any message. That crash on “hide all layers” happened twice today). I can’t reproduce the crash right now, but will add details here when I find something. As far as I remember the bug occured already in qcad 3.17, but I’m now on 3.18.1

thanks :)

 1643 ECMAScriptFeature RequestLow Modify > Explode: make drawing order predictable Closed
100%
Task Description

Usecase:
Multiple entities ( for example polylines ) get exploded...

BUG:
the exploded lines have all the same drawing ids the old entities had, a consequence of this is that when one explodes and then exports to dxf file the line order get’s scrambled wildly
the exported order is “random”!

SUGGESTED FIX:
sort the selected entities by their id first then
after copying attributes ⇒ also set the order of the elements to the default order !
( see fix in sourcecode attached )

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.

Task Description

Hi,

if I use the “Print current view” tool for a Landscape format - everything works just nicely!
If I use it for a Portrait print - the scale is way of.

For this example I used a rectangle as reference. The details what I’m looking for are captured with same sized red rectangles. The Paper orientation was changed before I used the Print command. To have the maximum view I select the rectangle and used “Zoom to selection” - then Print to current view.

Portrait, scale way of:

1632QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOption to add bespoke dimension precision + tolerance s...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Hi Andrew,

1. I cannot find a way of selecting individual dimensions and changing the precision lets say from 0.00 to 0.000 for these particular dimensions only without affecting all the rest of the dimensions in the drawing - could an option be added for doing this in the property editor or not?

2. Would it be possible to add an option in the drawing preferences so that automatically a symbol is added at the correct placement fo all dimensions, in this case a tolerance plus/minus symbol?

Many thanks

Clive

1625QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowCopy LayerAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

often I’m in the situation that I have to create an additional Layer mostly based on the settings from an already existing Layer. Just a question of organization. This new Layer has then everything identical except the name and one(?) Attribute. This could be that only the color or the Line weight deviates.

Example:

Existing Layer

Layer name: Lot 47 area existing

Attributes

Color: Red

Lineweight: 0.35

Linetype: Dashed


New Layer

Layer name: Lot 47 area proposal

Attributes

Color: Blue

Lineweight: 0.35

Linetype: Dashed

Unfortunately if done manually it happens in an blink of an eye that the human imperfection (me!) makes a mistake and (e.g.) a “Center (.5x)” finds it way into the Linetype Field instead of a “Center (.2x)” .... :-(

The workaround for a few User is to use in cases like this the Property Editor / General Property and customize single Attributes. In my opinion the first step to lose the control over your own drawing ...

A “Copy Layer” / Copy Layer Attributes” function would speed up this task and eliminate to a minimum the “human imperfection” factor.

I could imagine that a right click (like copy block) on the Layer triggers the “Add Layer” function and the dialog is already prefigured with the Settings of the Source Layer ...... ready for editing.
The new Layer itself is “empty” like any other new Layer.

 1615 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Decimal point of dimensions shown as '?', preferences p ...Closed
100%
Task Description

First. I am not able to find OS selection for macOS Sierra so I choose Mac OS X.
I noticed that when I opened my drawing, I saw dimensions on drawing showed ‘156?6’ instead of ‘156.6’ in prior version I had installed. Probably in 3.16.5

So I opened Dimension Settings page to review and found when opening Dimension Settings under Drawing Preferences,
Dimension Settings does not show. It remains blank.

Then I clicked on other settings menu item from left and clicked back on the Dimension Settings I was able to see the Dimension setting.
However; when I closed the dialog and try to open the Dimension Settings again, I am not able to see the settings page at all. Just blank. I can see other settings page fine.

One time when I was able to see the Dimension Setting, I noticed that the Separator symbol was blank. So I updated that to ‘.’ and hit OK.
The drawing still shows ‘156?6’ instead of expected ‘156.6’.

It seems the separator symbol is not being saved for some reason.
