 1756 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Polyline area wrong if polyline contains arc segments Closed
100%
Task Description

The area of polylines with arcs can be incorrect.
With only line segments it is correct as far as I can check.
See <Poly-line Area.dxf> ; <Poly-arc Area.dxf>

It does not depend on the quadrant their in nor with what point the start point is.
It is related with the oriëntation.
Flipping or mirroring horizontally induce the error.

Modifications like flip, move & copy may induce another error that locks the oriëntation.
It is noticed that the oriëntation property in the editor does not change anymore when reversing.
Although locked the value of the area property switches between good and wrong.

The master poly in question is a part of an arc and a part of an ellipse exploded 1024/full.
These where recombined to one poly with ‘Create from selection’ and are closed.
Closed as per the last vertex does not point to the start point, logically closed I presume.
The purpose is to sum the error surface for the skewing math.
For now I will use my common sence to distinguish what value is the correct one.
Reversing while found faulty is the solution.

 1746 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow File > Bitmap Export: File base name cut off in file sa ...Closed
100%
Task Description

A file with name of 1234.56.78.0001.00 Something blah blah.dxf will not export to bitmap correctly. The save dialog will suggest filename of 1234.56.78.0001.jpg instead, truncating everything after last dot.

This bug existed in older versions too because of incorrect handling of file names. As a result, at some point File.getSaveFileName incorrectly truncates the extension (which is empty at the time) and replaces it with jpg. Appending a null extension fixes this, though obviously it’s not a correct fix.

Here is a temporary workaround in File.js:

File.getInitialSaveAsPath = function(filePath, extension) {
    var ret = "";

    var fi;

    if (isNull(filePath) || filePath.length === 0) {
        var mdiChild = EAction.getMdiChild();
        var fn;
        if (!isNull(mdiChild)) {
            fn = stripDirtyFlag(EAction.getMdiChild().windowTitle)
        }
        else {
            fn = "File";
        }

        fi = new QFileInfo(QDir.homePath());
        ret = fi.absoluteFilePath() + QDir.separator + fn + "." + extension + ".nothing"; // Workaround here
    } else {
        fi = new QFileInfo(filePath);
        ret = fi.path() + QDir.separator + fi.completeBaseName() + "." + extension + ".nothing"; // Workaround here
    }
    return ret;

Hi,

I have a drawing where I use text with superscript. In this case when I use autozoom, it does not work as I expect. It includes the 0,0 coordinates too. The problem also occures when I export the drawing into svg.

I attached an example, just use the autozoom.

Thanks,

 1716 TranslationBug ReportLow Wrong plural forms in translations Closed
100%
1 Task Description

I found that words which has plural forms are translated in manner where only two forms are possible - like in English language. For example: “Object” and “Objects”. But other languages (for example Polish) very often have more than 2 plural forms.
There are also strings which use only one form (for example: “Reset label position of %1 dimension(s).”) but cardinal number placed in string point on more forms than one.
All these strings looks bad when translated and sometimes even in English. I mark most of them using comments:

 1709 QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery Low Feature request: Add extra padding to textbox. Closed
100%
Task Description

When placing text on a drawing you are offered with the choice of where you want the origin of the textbox to be. That’s very nice. Image 1 shows an example of text with top left origin. It seems there is already some top padding above the text.

Unfortunately there is no option to add extra padding to the other sides so the text is right to the left border of the textbox. To correct this you have to add some parallel construction lines and move the text a bit to the right. Now the text has nice padding. See image 2.

It would be nice to have some padding options when adding/editing text, like in web-design: https://www.w3schools.com/css/css_padding.asp

 1708 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Layer > Select Layer: add feedback Closed
100%
Task Description

Win 7
Q-CAD 3.19.2

R-Click in Layer list
With a selection, selecting by Layer adds the Items on that Layer to the selection.
With a selection, deselecting by Layer subtracts the Items on that Layer from the selection.
This is not a bug in casu because this can be the intention of the function. Adding or Subtracting.

Intuitively ‘selecting by Layer’ to retrict to that Layer solely has only the desired effect if no selection existed before.
Deselecting by Layer with no previous selection should mention there was none to start with.
Selecting by Layer from an empty Layer should mention that nothing is added.

Faults are prone to make.

Selecting a Layer uniquely would be an interesting additional feature.

A nasty bug that I posted some time in the forum that prevents QCAD to read properly the content block associated with dimension.

Here’s what is happening:
- every dimension entity in DXF/DWG is stored with a block representing its contents (or in fact, anything else)
- QCAD ignores that block and instead renders the dimension using the various sizes and properties of the dimension
