1172QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowPrint Preview - Add 'Place Paper Option' toolAssigned
0%
Task Description

Often in print preview I need to move the paper around and position it with the ‘Move Paper Position’ tool, which is useful, but what would be an additional extra useful option would be a ‘Place Paper Here’ tool.

Then I could simply use this tool first and then use the ‘Move Paper Position’ tool afterwards to fine tune things!

If you look at the attached image you will see that in this students file they have got their drawing spread out all over the place:(

1368QCAD (main)SuggestionLowContext Menu - suggestionsAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

I love using the context menu, speeding up my workflow indeed.

I would like to suggest that we have the added option to show only icons if desired and also that maybe an option to save and show commonly used tools!

Maybe the context menu could be configurable to show two columns, one for the normal last used tools and the othjer one for the user saved tools?

What do you think?

0%
1 Task Description

Often I find myself clicking on an existing line to determine the angle from the property editor, then copying and pasting this info into the angle field, it would be so very useful to have an additional option in the ‘Line from Angle’ tool to be able to pick an existing entity which would automatically register and fill in the angle for me,then all I would need to do would enter the length required.

I would love to have a ‘Double Line’ tool in QCAD.

1488QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDimension text positionAssigned
0%
3 Task Description

This one is a really important one for me, as currently I am doing a lot of dimension and annotation drawings.
I would like to request an option to be added to the dimension settings for both drawing and application settings to be able to choose whether the dimension text is to the right or left side or over the top or underneath the dimension line.
This would help tremendously when a lot of dimensions are needed!

0%
1 Task Description

It would be extreamly useful to have an option to either use - or not use leader lines in the standard horizontal/vertical dimension line tools, some of the drawings I’m working on need the ‘standard’ looking dimensions with leader lines and some don’t. its a real pain to have to select - explode and delete all the leaders I don’t need.

Hoping for an option

1505QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew feature - use info tools with scaleAssigned
0%
Task Description

When using the info tools, like the point to point measure it would be useful to be able to select a scale as well.

For example, when I scale a drawing say to 1:20, when working on the scaled drawing I can measure accurately with the measure tool in 1:20 also, without having to keep refering to the 1:1 drawing.

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

1647QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd point / dot option for leaders Assigned
0%
Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Hopefully you might be able to squeeze this one around your busy schedule.

Would it be possible to add in the property editor an option to change a dimension arrow to a point / filled dot and maybe also a tick?

I see you are working on some viewport stuff, I am very much looking forward to testing some of this out ;).

Many thanks

Clive

1651QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowChange thickness of arch tick for dimensioningAssigned

An option in the drawing preferences to change the line thicknesses for arch ticks would be a huge plus, at the moment I am having to insert ‘arch tick’ blocks for this.

Hi Andrew,

I’m not sure whether this has been added or suggested already. It would be great to have a built in QCAD table tool for producing cutting lists or bill of materials etc. A dedicated table tool would be a real boost to QCAD Pro ;)

Many thanks

1 Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Currently the only option to insert a viewport is using the central insertion point, for better placement it would be useful to have an option to insert viewports at any of the four corners in addition to the centre.

Hope that makes sense.

Many thanks

Hi Andrew,

It would be good to have an option to be able to place the text to the left or right,maybe just a simple check box? please see attached screenshot to explain. In this instance (and I have to do this a lot ;)) I had to explode the dimension entity and rearrange the text manually :(

Many thanks

100%
Task Description

Windows 7 - 64

Via - edit>drawing preferences or Application preferences>print page set up, it seems to make no difference setting the page orientation to either “Portrait” or “landscape” because when you go to print preview the set up you previously set doesn`t overide and set the orientation “set buttons” in print preview, so you have to manually set the orientation for the page you want to print from here (in print preview) regardless of the previously “preferenced” set up.

In the metric templates the unit size shown in the preview is showing as ‘Inch’ instead of millimeter. probably just a ‘typo’ mistake here as in reality when you open up a ‘metric’ template they are indeed measuring in millimeters!

 619 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Status bar - X,Y etc. input fields  Closed
100%
Task Description

It could be very useful to have in the status bar area - input fields for typing in X and Y position, Distance and Angle etc...

For example these could be used instead of entering absolute/relative coordinates in the command line.

1.Draw line.
2.Start point - enter in X Field.
3.Next point - enter in Y Field.

This method could also be used for specifying positions when placing other entities.

For me I tend to use a combination of the command line/GUI for most work but I think for those who do not wish to use the command line this could be useful.

 629 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Viewports - not retaining positions? Closed
100%
Task Description

in Win 7-64

Hi Andrew
when I set up my default choice of viewports - say ‘Two vertical’, they do not retain either the initial starting position or indeed the position I leave them in when I reopen a drawing. On opening a new/previous drawing - always one of the viewports is at ‘almost’ full extents!
I then have to manually re-position my viewports to suit.

Is this normal behavior happening here?
It would be good if a drawing opened with persistent viewport positions held, possibly this option could be added to the ‘Layout’ Viewports dialog window?

*Out of interest, when you introduce an isometric grid in the future - will it be possible to set up a ‘Three:Right’ layout view for example and have all three viewports showing different planes - Top, Front and South East?

Thanks

Clive

 630 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Select entities by type Closed
100%
Task Description

please see:
http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=1177

from LeoP

” What would be really useful is a method to select entities by type, rather than by location or layer.

It could have a user interface like the snap command with buttons for the entity type to select, or like the line command with a drop-down box.

This would enable one to quickly select e.g. all texts in a drawing for subsequent attribute modification. Now one has to select each text individually if the texts are scattered over the drawing and layers...”

 636 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow 64 bit compilation Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,

I’m using QCAD2 quite a while now and after moving from FreeBSD-i386 to FreeBSD-amd64 there are some libraries missing in the 32 bit version (libXi and some more).

I’d strongly suggest making a 64 bit compilation of the pro version. The community edition does compile and run on FBSD-amd64 very well.

Maybe ths would better be posted to the suggestion list of the upcoming version 3 ...

Thanks for attention!
