 718 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow 3.0.5 -snap / info feedback problems Closed
100%
Task Description

In 3.0.5 using windows 7-64 and windows vista.
After selecting to use any drafting tool - either arc, circle or ellipse, polyline etc. there are problems with defining the second snap point onwards whether using auto snap or any of the snap tools,the info feedback i.e. End or Middle etc... is flickering or none at all.

Test:
1.Center, Point.
2.Define center.
3.Hard to define point, flickering occurs on graphics feedback for label.

I`m guessing this is another Graphic display problem here.

 785 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Hatch at scale 1/10 not completed on 500 mm x 500 mm s ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Windows 7-64
3.0.8

I’ve not been able to hatch a simple Brick pattern at a scale of 1/10 on anything larger that 500 mm x 500 mm.

*Scale of 1:1 works fine
*Scale of 1/10 works fine on Squares 400 mm x 400 mm or less!

To reproduce:
1. Draw square of 500 x 500 mm.
2. Select and execute Hatch command using Brick pattern (but I suspect the result will be the same with any pattern).
3. Result in selection states a Hatch but no hatch is present!

 795 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Render circular arcs precisely - tool query Closed
100%
Task Description

Although in my re-testing of this tool with 3.0.8 everything seemed fine I have since noticed that it only seems to work for line-weights of 0.5 mm and larger!
using a line weight of 0.00 produces the original non precise result.

Is this expected behaviour or is something still not quite right for this?

 807 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Option to add a folders in the layer list Closed
100%
Task Description

It would be useful to have an option to be able to add new folders in the layer list, to group certain layers together in a folder when needed, this would reduce the layer list length and make it easier to navigate to certain layers (would be useful for me anyway!).

This feature might also be useful for the block list too!

 856 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Option to create a polyline from 'selected' entities on ...Closed
100%
Task Description

It would be useful to have an additional option in the polyline tool set to be able to create a polyline from selected entities only, without the need first for preparatory drafting measures.
Basic example attached.
You see here I want to create a polyline from only the selected lines, thus leaving the rest as separate line segments.

 857 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Breakout / Autotrim not working Closed
100%
Task Description

Windows 7-64

Please see attached a simple test to demonstrate the problem.

2. When selecting the bottom half of the circle - the whole circle disappears!

Autotrim tool

1. When selecting the top half of the circle - the trim seems to work.

2. When selecting the bottom half of the circle - no trim happens at all!

 880 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow New Ellipse tools Closed

It would be good to have additional ellipse tools that could produce an ellipse:
Tangential to four given sides (closed like a Quadrilateral) or sperate sides and to 4 given coordinate points.

 882 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Repeat last tool button Closed
100%
Task Description

A ‘Repeat last tool’ button would be useful.
When one has fully cancelled all operations, sometimes it would be convenient to have the option to have a repeat of the last tool again...I’m thinking that a simple button could do this a bit like the reset/idle button.

 884 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Tool for copying/pasting selected entities along a path Closed
100%
Task Description

Not sure how complicated this one might be to develop/implement ?

But a tool for copying/pasting entities along a given path would be great. In the attached snapshot you can see what I am trying to acheive - to copy/paste the brick along a wall contour. A dedicated tool for doing something like this would be great...sure I can do it with the tools provided in QCAD already but it sure would make life so much easier if there was a tool specific for this kind of thing.
I am actually working on some ‘real’work projects with these requirements and it does take a bit of time to get correct!

Or maybe an additional Points tool option to plant points along a curve would be good!

 896 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Lineweight problem Closed
100%
Task Description

Linux Mint - 64

I need to laser cut some dashed circles and in order to do this I need to change the lineweight to 0.00mm (this is the lineweight I use for all laser cutting), however when I do this the result I get is not acceptable.

Using a lineweight of 0.05 is fine but our laser cutters will only read a lineweight of 0.00mm.Normally I would use a linetype of continuous and would be no problem, but for this particular job I need to use the smallest Dash option here!
For now I can get around this problem but it would be good to be able to choose this lineweight and linetype choice at some stage.

100%
Task Description

If a chosen hatch contains points, the hatch will use the point display set in the Application/Current drawing preferences, this leads to incorrectness with certain hatches.
