Task Description

explicit drawing order of objects (such as sending hatch to back and bringing text to front) not respected when export to pdf used, the order of overlapping objects seems to use the order in which they were added to the drawing

this causes problems if we try to export a dxf to pdf and the hatching was drawn after some of the text

100%
Task Description

Case:
Settings are:
General: Drawing Unit
Drawing Unit: Foot
Paper Unit: Inch
Measurement System: Imperial

Dimension Settings: Architectural

Issue:

I draw a horizontal line 12 units (foot) long,
Use then the Horizontal DIM tool and it will display a measurement of 1’ = false,

I draw a horizontal line of 2 units (foot)long,
Use then the Horizontal DIM tool and it will display a measurement of 2” = false,

I assume the input for the line length is handled from the DIM tool as inch and not as feet.

Default setting to use ANSI A will change to ISO A4 in mm regardless that the Paper Unit is inch and size ANSI A.
Unit is unstable when you change the format a few times. It will switch between mm and inch what can lead to a 8.5 mm x 11 mm Paper size (then called customized!) or 210” x 297” ANSI A4,

 1668 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low Text color of command line unreadable with KDE's Breeze ...Closed
100%
Task Description

I prefer the Breeze Dark color scheme as it find it less stressful on my eyes, however it’s unusable with QCAD where the Command Line prompts and responses are rendered as a very light grey on a white background. I believe the proper fix would be one (or both) of:

  • Make the Command Line area background follow the desktop scheme. (It appears that the text already does so, hence the light text, but since the background doesn’t it becomes unusable.)
  • Provide a configuration option for the text and/or background color used in the Command Line area.

Screen shots are attached showing both Breeze and Breeze Dark schemes.

1663QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFeature Request: Export Layers as New DrawingAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi!

in many tasks in qcad I ended up exporting one or several layers into individual files for some cnc jobs or further processing. So the steps I usually do are:

  • select all elements on the layer
  • paste into new drawing
  • sometimes rename layer names or attributes
  • adjust dimension settings
  • save and give name for drawing

Sometimes I have up to 100 layers I need to export like this, so an automatic export for all would be time saving too. But very often a “single click” export method would also help a lot. (e.g. inside the layer list an entry in the right click menue like “save as new file”). Also a multiple selection would be handy if more that one layer should end up in the new file. (e.g. select the three layers that need to be in the new document, then right click and save as new file). Maybe this is too much of changes needed inside the layer list - so something like a separate layer export dialogue would make sense.

When exporting many layers some variables for automatic naming of layers and filename would make sense e.g. user can specify basename_%L.dxf to get the basename_layername.dxf or just an increasing number.

For layers and attributes it is often needed to give a layer a certain name or color for different cnc processes (e.g. engraving and cutting for lasers) or to put everything on layer “0” because of some old CAM software that only supports content on layer 0.

probably many more details would make sense that I didn’t think of yet...

kind regards
Martin


 1662 QCAD (main)Performance IssueLow Select > Select Contour: slow for complex drawings Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi!

when working with files containing many not connected elements (non-poly-line elements) a double click can cause a coffee-break easily. The search for connected entities easily takes over 5 minutes on an up to date machine (i7@3.4GHz) with files that are pretty standard in size (2 or 3 MB file size ascii dxf). Adding an interruption-method would be suitable (for example by pressing escape).

attached a file with a polyline of 13000 entities and a second file with just everything duplicated. When exploding the polyline and double clicking an element it takes quite a while until all elements are selected. (this is not an extreme example, I had sometimes 10 minutes of waiting with slightly bigger files, accidently double clicking something).

also an improved algorithm for the search would help to speed up the selection. (e.g. divide the area in smaller parts, do the search there, or an option to search only in the visible view port of the document)

... I have the feeling that wasn’t the idea. I’m correct?

Case:
in Model Space, launch Add Viewport, determine the Viewport rectangle - when done QCAD will switch to a Layout Block.
Now in Layout Block, don’t(!) place the Viewport, switch back to Model Space and the Viewport is still attached to the Mouse pointer and you can place it in your Model Space. The source of the Viewport will then disappear.

 1653 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dimension font configuration only loaded if drawing con ...Closed
100%
Task Description

This bugs me since a long time but I wasn’t able to reproduce it ..... till now!

My Dim Label font for new drawings (Application Preferences) is set to “Helvetica-Bold” Basically it was working just fine for new drawings but from time to time, after saving and reopen my drawing, the font was lost and replaced by “Standard”. No idea why!

Today I was playing with the new QCAD Feature “Default Template” and learned that I loose all the time my preselected font. QCAD ignores that my Template “Drawing Preferences” and also the “Application Preferences” are set to “Helvetica-Bold”. It will be replaced by “Standard”. Annoying! :-(

Ok, question was why it doesn’t happened with all drawings, all the time?
After many tests ....
The “old” blank Template opens with the correct font setting. If I use a Dim in the drawing and save it everything works as expected.
If I save the drawing without a Dim in it then the preselected Font will be replaced by “Standard”. It happens also if I delete all Dims in a so far proper working drawing - save and reopen it leads to the same issue. The Font will be replaced by “Standard”.

The new feature “your own Default Template” will not work regarding the Dim Label font in any cases - the template itself needs at least one Dim in the drawing to keep the desired Font.

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

Task Description

Hi.

I’m working currently a lot with files coming from rhino. Qcad can open them properly any also most operations on them work as usual - except the selection methods.

box select from upper left to lower right works as usual.
double click to select all connected entities is broken. (only one entity is selected).
box select from lower right to upper left does not select entities touching the selection box. (nothing is selected)

on mac os nothing is selectable with single click.
on linux single click sometimes fails (nothing is selected after clicking on a line).

thanks for looking into this :)

 1644 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Crash on hide all layers button / mixed layers of diffe ...Closed
100%
2 Task Description

Hi!

it occorred to me now several times, that I have been working on 2 or more files simultaneously when suddenly on some operations layers from one file showed up in the other file. nothing was pasted when it happened just many files open, or few files with many layers in them. (about 100 layers, but sometimes also only 10 layers)
Today I disabled a single layer in one dxf (A) which caused all layers of the other dxf (B) to show up in the layer list (and the layers that should show up were all gone).

I knew this already from 2 more occurances and tried the best to undo all my changes in (A) before “emergency saving” (A). I closed one of the two dxf files (A), leaving one open (B). Everthing seemed pretty normal again. Then pressing the “hide all layers” button just crashed qcad without any message. That crash on “hide all layers” happened twice today). I can’t reproduce the crash right now, but will add details here when I find something. As far as I remember the bug occured already in qcad 3.17, but I’m now on 3.18.1

thanks :)

 1643 ECMAScriptFeature RequestLow Modify > Explode: make drawing order predictable Closed
100%
Task Description

Usecase:
Multiple entities ( for example polylines ) get exploded...

BUG:
the exploded lines have all the same drawing ids the old entities had, a consequence of this is that when one explodes and then exports to dxf file the line order get’s scrambled wildly
the exported order is “random”!

SUGGESTED FIX:
sort the selected entities by their id first then
after copying attributes ⇒ also set the order of the elements to the default order !
( see fix in sourcecode attached )

With multiple files open 4 of the 5 buttons of the Layer List Widget are acting on an other file that is open instead of acting on the file in focus.
in this condition only Add Layer YA acts on the file in focus.

Not easy to reproduce.
Encountered it more frequent
after copy with ref and pasting.
with more then 2 files open.
with similar drawing file names.
Did reproduce after several hopping between files.
Usually acts on the first open file but this can be different as in the example.

Hi,

if I use the “Print current view” tool for a Landscape format - everything works just nicely!
If I use it for a Portrait print - the scale is way of.

For this example I used a rectangle as reference. The details what I’m looking for are captured with same sized red rectangles. The Paper orientation was changed before I used the Print command. To have the maximum view I select the rectangle and used “Zoom to selection” - then Print to current view.

Portrait, scale way of:

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
