Task Description

Most of our drawings have a Data sheet, parts List, cutting list, description etc etc on a pdf, world or excel file.

It would be nice to have a link possibility directly in QCAD to those files what will be saved with the drawing.
Like the bitmap function without displaying the files in the drawing ...

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.

0%
Task Description

Nach einigen Überraschungen ....

Es ist möglich Layer in nicht eingefügten oder unsichtbar geschalteten Library Items unbemerkt zu löschen ....

Fallbeispiel 1:
Ich arbeite an einer Zeichnung die u.a. den Layer “Gelbe Linie” benutzt.
Ich füge ein Library Item ein was auch einen Layer “Gelbe Linie” hat.
Ich lösche - aus welchen Gründen auch immer - in der Zeichnung das Library Item weil ich es erst später wieder verwenden will.
In der Blocklist ist es natürlich immer noch verfügbar.
In der Zeichnung lösche ich den Layer “Gelbe Linie” da ich diesen nicht brauche brauche - habe aber natürlich nicht im Kopf welche Layer in meinen Blocks verwendet wurden.
Nach einiger Zeit will ich den Block (den aus der Library) wieder einfügen - dieser ist nun aber unbrauchbar da der Inhalt welcher auf dem Layer “gelbe Linie” war fehlt.
Das Library Item neu aus Library laden um das bereits existierende zu reparieren scheitert da das erste nicht überschrieben werden kann. Ich muss den ersten Block löschen um den neuen benutzen zu können.

Fallbeispiel 2:
Da das selbe (löschen der Layer) auch passieren kann bei unsichtbar geschalteten Blöcken kann es dazu führen das ich zig bereits positionierte Blöcke zerstöre und neu platzieren muss um meine Zeichnung zu reparieren.

Fallbeispiel 3:
Ich sehe in meiner Zeichnung einen Layer “Gelbe Linie”. Weiß nicht was das ist - schalte alle Layer unsichtbar außer “Gelbe Linie”. Klicke auf “Auto Zoom” um zu sehen was den auf “Gelbe Linie” ist. Finde nichts = also leer! Lösche Layer “Gelbe Linie”. Der Layer wurde aber von einem im Moment nicht verwendeten Library Block verwendet. Es gibt keinen Hinweis das ich damit ein Library Item zerstören könnte ....

Lange Rede kurzer Sinn: Wäre es machbar/sinnvoll Layer in Blöcken nur löschen zu können wenn ich mich im Edit Modus der Blöcke befinde?

It would be nice to get:

In the Create Library Item task → “Save as” a remember Function for the last chosen Path to save the Item ... or a default path what is the same like the settings in the Application Preferences.
Right now you have to navigate again and again for every item what you will save in the same directory. If you have to save 20 items - it sacks ;-)

Also would it be nice for an easy “Clean up” to have the possibility to delete items directly in the Library Browser window.
Right now you have to use extern Programs like the Windows explorer to move or delete items.

1009QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLayer Order is Alphabetical vs the Order Defined Origin...Assigned
0%
Task Description

It would appear that when QCAD imports a DXF, it reorders the layers into alphabetical order (at least when importing R2011). I have not tested this extensively but on other programs, the order is different from alphabetical. Ideally the operator should be given a choice to order the layers as exported (assuming the DXF format remembers that) or alphabetical. This is because a drawing may have a certain stack up of layers (like a printed circuit board) and then alphabetic ordering is not useful nor desired.

766QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLayer List: Add "Lock All Layers"Assigned
0%
3 Task Description

To improve useability/efficiency I would like to propose the following changes/additions to the layer list:

1) Combining the show and hide button into one button.

Clicking once will hide all layers, clicking again will show them all again.

2) A “lock/unlock” button.

Clicking once will lock all layers, clicking again will unlock them all again.

Regarding the icons I suggest that instead of show both the black and grey version of the eye/lock, you could switch between them depending on the state the switch-button is in. Also the mouse-over-text could/should change with the state.

In the same way as the Pen tool has a drop down menu, would it be possible to have an option to configure the layer list in the same way. I am trying to create a bit more drawing space and it would be good if I could dock the layer list in the top of my window and only take up a single row space!

There is an issue importing from Autocad:

Furthermore, Autocad opens Qcad’s dxf files showing wrong quotes.

It would be very useful to have the same possibility for Isometric projection like the Paste tool etc.. An option which ask me to put a new Isometric projection on the current layer is right now missing. If I like to have this new Isometric Projection on a different layer I have to reselect the projection and move it to that layer. That is plain inconvenient.

With that new feature the information tool shows the absolute paper units in the print preview mode instead of drawing units.
So you can determine the exact size of an entity in the printout without manual calculating with the drawing units and the scale factor.

703QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowInfo function -> contour for Hatch not closed ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Task: If I like to make a hatch and the contour isn’t closed I get a Grey circle Info where the contour isn’t closed. Nice!

But ..... I have this Info only for ONE not proper connection and only for the moment when the mouse pointer is over the Hatch Tool Symbol.

If I have to zoom into the Problem - I will lose the Info where the problem is :-(

To get the “Problem Info” back I have to select it again - but for that I have to zoom out ............... ;-)

It would be nice to have this “Problem Info” longer in the drawing - maybe until I solved all problems.

And it would be nice to have ALL Infos for not connected lines at the same time. It is not really helpful to repeat this function 20times if I have 20 connection problems ... ;)

1323QCAD (main)SuggestionLowImprove command line support in QCADAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

As a typical command line draftsman (still using acad10 for dos, since microsoft doesn’t supoort Win NT anymore),
I noticed a severe lack on command line acces in QCAD.

For example I find the icon and pixel selecting methods within qcad very confusing and rude.

With the normal cad Select command I can select exactly what en how I want it.

I intend not to be rude, but I find my drawing screen littered all over with all kind of very specialist menu’s,
tools and options. Sorry, I just want to make a drawing at the natural intuitive way, as with a pencil.
So I use command line Commands, such as Move, Copy, Change, Select, a.s.o.
For a ‘Command scripting’ user (-batching is a different tool!-),
it seems to me logical these basic commands should be accessable.

1203dxflibBug ReportLowImages not saved (dxflib)Assigned
0%
Task Description

I am doing a bit of landscaping and using a (big) ortophoto as one of my layers in order to sanity-check on the ground measurements.

The layer contains a point and the image and nothing else.

The image is a 8MB file: “PNG image data, 4200 x 2980, 8-bit/color RGB, non-interlaced” and it is scaled to 210 coordinate units (meter) horizontally in the drawing.

With approx 50% probability the image disappears during Save, as see for instance in this diff of the DXF file:

The point in the same layer does not similarly disappear, the bug only seems to affect images.

I have seen this bug from version 3.7.5.0 to git as of yesterday (63e06c778926a803bdfbffdf27b8c24d41511072).

I have not been able to correlate the bug with anything.

Looking closer at the DXF file (attached), there seems to be some residuce of attempts to insert images in protected/invisible layers, so this may be some kind of refcounting issue.

(Any chance of getting FreeBSD into the “Operating System” field ?)

763QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowHatching with just one clickAssigned
0%
4 Task Description

My task: To hatch an area.

Right now, if I want to fill an area with a hatch pattern, I have to select all the enclosing objects (lines, arcs) and then I can select the hatch tool. That can be under some circumstances a tedious task.
To illustrate this, I created a simple example (see Attachment 1: Hatching.png).

Step 1: Create a rectangle.
Step 2: Draw four vertical lines.
Step 3: Select the four lines surrounding the first area. –> Problem! The horizontal lines are too long.
Step 4: Divide the long horizontal lines of the rectangle where the vertical lines touch. Now the lines surrounding the three areas can be selected.
Step 5: Hatch the selection. Done.

Just for fun try recreating my second example (see Attachment 2: Hatching2.png)

Therefore I would like to suggest a far more simple approach.

Step 1: Select the Hatch Tool.
Step 2: Click inside the area you would like to be hatched. Done.

Of course that would mean that the hatch style is already pre-defined and can be changed later, if needed.

In this way productivity can be increased by ... [fill in you own estimate] ... times.

Example 2 would need only 13 clicks to hatch all the areas (including the hatch tool button).

Task Description

Es wäre schön wenn ich Werte wie zum Beispiel Längen von Linien direkt abgreifen könnte um diese weiter in Berechnungen verwenden zu können.

Beispiel:
Ich habe eine Linie konstruiert wobei sich eine Länge y ergeben hat.

Nun möchte ich eine Linie zeichnen die 5 mal y sein soll.

Linientool → Wert 5* eingeben und y durch Auswahl mit der Maus von dem vorhandenen Elements übernehmen.

Natürlich könnte ich die Geometrie Info benutzen um den Wert abzulesen oder auch über die Zwischenablage zu benutzen. Ein abgreifen mit der Maus wäre aber schneller, direkter und wahrscheinlich auch mit weniger Fehlern (Human error) verbunden. Wahrscheinlich auch genauer da QCad, denke ich, mit mehr Nachkommastellen rechnet, oder?

Task Description

Dear Sir,
I have noticed that in QCAD 3 rc4 it is not possible to open and edit font files.
This feature exists in version 2.2 and is indispensable to people using not common languages.
For example the unicode font does not have all greek characters, so I have added a few of the missing ones by editing the unicode.cxf font with version 2.2.
I kindly ask the designers to consider enabling this capability again.
Thank you!
