Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Just a little thing I noticed recently.

My default is set to save as DWG and indeed it does, however the auto-save feedback tells me that the file is saved to DXF, although it actually does save to DWG - no big deal but is this correct feedback?

Many thanks

Clive

 504 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Poor results from offsetting a Spline in RC 2/3 Closed
100%
Task Description

Offsetting a Spline, after exploding and converting to a polyline produces a poor result!

1. Version 2.2 - no problems for using polyline Tools > offset for splines - after exploding them and creating a polyline from the segments! The results were acceptable!

2. Version 3 RC3 or 2 (Ubuntu) - the resultant offset of the Spline was unacceptable in Version 3 RC2/3 and only 50% of the offset was created!

Task Description

Feature request
See topic - http://www.ribbonsoft.com/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=2015

Just a thought, but one that could be useful for machinists in particular - a measurement tool that can snap to a point as per usual, but then just displays the drawing coordinates in X and Y. This could be expanded to the dimensions tool set, so that you can click on a point and print the coordinates next to it.

775QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNote book tool for QCADAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

It would be really cool to have a Note book tool for QCAD!

For example I am often working on a draft and at the same time scribbling notes down on a separate piece of paper relating to the drawing I am working on, could be anything e.g. add a block,add a dimension etc. etc... all sorts of things to remind myself about - all related to a particular drawing.

Of course I could use any number of other programs for this but a simple dedicated tool inside QCAD (could be called the ‘QCAD scribbler ;)) would be much better, especially one that can save the notes to a particular file, then when I open up my drawing again - my notes are there too!

776QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowExtra ' isometric' buttons for using Line from Angle.Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

When working with the isometric grid (in any projection - Top, Right, Left) and drawing from ‘scratch’ as it were, without using the projection tools - I find myself using ‘Line from Angle’ the most.

It would be extreamly useful to be presented with two extra buttons when using this tool, a 30 degree button and a -30 degree button, this way I wouldn’t need to keep typing in the angle difference here.

Clive

786QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMulti - Breakout toolAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

A ' Multi ' Breakout tool or added option to the existing Breakout tool.

For example see attached image.

An option to remove all segments within a chosen boundary would be good, in my example I want to remove all the hatching within the Red circle.

So after exploding the Hatch, currently I have to remove all segments singularly!

Of course I could have placed the circle first and hatched around it - but in this and most instances it is easier to design and to produce the Hatching first and then place my circle/shapes etc.

787QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowHatch generator - plug in tool?Assigned

Task Description

Would it be possible to make a Plug in tool for a Hatch generator, so custom made hatches can be saved as .pat files?

I have a lot of up and coming future projects that I would like to make my own ‘custom’ hatches for.

It would be very useful to have an extra option to only detect duplicates within a user defined area.

792QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew 'Match' properties toolAssigned
0%
Task Description

To add a new ‘Match’ properties tool.

For example, I have a large drawing with lots and lots of entities on various layers and I want to select some entities (say 500 or more) which are all on different layers and change all these selected entities to match the properties of one other particular entity - but, but I want the ‘Matched’ entities to remain on their own layers.

OK, of course I can use the property editor for this and this is fine in most instances but I would first need to determine the the layer data for the properties of the entity I would like to match to (Color, Line weight and Line type) in the first place and then I need to remember these attributes in order to change things in the property editor in order to change all of my selection to match!

As I say mostly the above procedure would be fine to use but for convenience it would be great to have a new tool to do all this for me and cut out a few steps in the process.

A new ‘Match’ properties tool procedure could be something like this:

1. Select Match properties tool.

2. Select all entities to be matched.

3. Select entity to match to.

4. Tick or leave un-ticked - move to same layer.

5. Complete process.

* Actually, while writing this I`ve just thought of another useful addition which could be added to the Info tool set, ‘Entity’ properties info!
Example - click on Info > Entity Properties and click on the entity in question and then the properties are displayed without going to the layer data for this!
Just an idea ;)

859QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowPersistent selection button added to tool set.Assigned
0%
Task Description

It would be useful to have a persistent selection button added to the ‘selection’ tool set.

This would allow the user to set persistent selection as and when needed for the current drawing one is working on, rather than going the long route through the ‘Application’ preferences dialog.

Task Description

It would be extreamly useful to have an additional info tool to be able to find the centre of gravity (centroid) for an irregualr polygon.
For info please see:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centroid

Actually a tool whicn gives an option for finding the centre and centroid of polygons would be good.

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!

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