 797 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh QCAD hanging after loading working file Closed
100%
Task Description

I have the german Version of QCAD 3.0.0.
After starting QCAD I load my current work file (an architecture one).
After loading I get two working Areas in QCAD and after a while the complete Software QCAD (only QCAD) is hanging. It is not possible to close the QCAD SW with the task Manager of Windows 7. Only to log out helps to Close or remove the running SW. The attachment Shows a Screen copy. The view is when you see through milky glasses to QCAD.

I bought this SW a few days ago and then this happened. I have spend a lot of time to generate my Project and now this.

Is there any one who knows what the Problem is?
Is that a Problem of thw QCAD SW or can be the problem my current work file (generated with QCAD on my Notebook). Note, Problem happens on my work Station. I have started to work on my Notebook, but i found out that the Screen is to small to work with QCAD. So i moved the SW to my work Station. (Both working with Windows 7) This to get more Details abou the handling and whathappens before.

Would be great to get a quick Response or better a working solution for my Problem. When you need more details please let me know.

 1076 QCAD/CAMBug ReportHigh Crash on Mac OS X when using internal Trackpad Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Hi,

I have just updated my Mac OS from 10.9.2 to 10.9.4. QCAD 3.6.2 seems to be working normally under the newest version of Mac OS, but has developed a very specific bug which leads to reproducible crashes when a text object is edited.

Steps to minimally reproduce:
1. Open QCAD
2. Create a text object
3. Place the text object on the canvas
4. double-click the text object and edit its contents
5. click OK to accept changes
6. repeat from step 4 three or four times.

After several attempts to edit a text object, QCAD will crash with EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGBUS) in thread 0 (QCoreApplication).
The crash can also be triggered by moving the text object around on the canvas (instead of editing its contents).
The bug does not require anything else (no other objects on the canvas, no particular font, occurs in both new and previously saved documents).

Apart from this bug, QCAD seems to work fine on OS X 10.9. The text editing crash did not occur before the latest OS update. No other applications on my system seem to be having any problems. If this problem can be fixed, I think QCAD will be quite usable on 10.9.

 1091 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh Qcad-Pro 3.6.3 Repeatable crash when using mirror tool  ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Under OS X 10.9.4 I often experiencing a crash with QCad-Pro 3.6.3 when using the mirror tool. It’s repeatable to roughly 90% , just do it a few times and it will crash.

In this report I have included the crash trace from OS X as well as a simple example DXF file (a house gate) which can be used to repeat the crash. Just do a vertical mirroring a few times and the crash will happen.

It usually happens more if you choose “Keep original”

While not quite a showstopper I would consider this something that really needs fixing ASAP as it could mean data loss (which happened to me).

 1135 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh Minimally reproducible segfault when moving a leader in ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,

I have a nice minimally reproducible bug on QCAD v3.7.4 on Mac OS X 10.9.5 (Mavericks).
QCAD will segfault whenever I take the following steps:

1. Open a new document
2. Create a leader object (D,E) in the default ‘0’ layer. Leave its style and color defined by the layer, as per default.
3. Create a new layer, with a non-default line style or color. The line weight & layer name do not matter.
4. Select the leader object previously create
5. Open the property editor and assign the object to the new layer just created.
Every time, this will cause QCAD to segfault on my machine. The crash report is attached.

Another minimally reproducible path to the same error is to do the following:
1. Open a new document
2. Create a leader object (D,E) in the default ‘0’ layer. Give it a custom color and line style that over-ride the layer defaults.
3. Create a new layer, with a non-default line style or color. The line weight & layer name do not matter.
4. Select the leader object previously created.
5. Open the property editor and assign the object to the new layer just created.
6. Still in the property editor, switch the leader object’s color back to ‘By Layer’.
The same segfault will occur.

It seems that the crash is triggered by the action of changing a leader object’s color (and/or line style) in a manner that requires the object to check the containing layer’s default color and style. You can achieve this by either changing the object’s layer, or switching the color and style from being custom defined to ‘by layer’, as long as the selection requires the line’s appearance to change.

Any thoughts? My machine’s crash report is attached.

 1137 QCAD/CAMBug ReportHigh segfault creating dashed spline (without addons) Closed
100%
Task Description

Hello,

This is my first real bug report so please advise how i could provide more useful information.

I am not certain if the severity is correct.

The bug: segfault when creating a spline with a dashed linetype or opening a file containing one.

The bug isn’t present with the dwg extension installed

Steps to reproduce:
1. create drawing
2. create spline
3. set linetype to dashed
4. crash

 1145 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh Closing inactive tab of a modified drawing: drawing fil ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create new drawing and fill it with some contents that’s easy to distinguish, for example text “DRAWING 1”.
2. Save it as dr1.dxf
3. Close it
4. Open dr1.dxf
5. Edit it, for example change text from “DRAWING 1” to “DRAWING 2” 6. Save changed file as dr2.dxf
7. Close it
8. Open dr1.dxf (it should have content “DRAWING 1”)
9. Open dr2.dxf (it should have content “DRAWING 2”)
10. Close tab dr1.dxf
10.1 Qcad will ask you to save changes.
10.2 Press “Yes” –> nothing happens, dialog doesn’t disappear.
10.3 Press “Discard” –> dialog disappears, tab gets closed
10.4 Tab that has content of file dr2.dxf (”DRAWING 2”) remains open but gets title “dr1.dxf” (!)
11. Close tab
12. Press “Yes” in dialog that asks to save changes

Results:
1. Open dr1.dxf
2. Open dr2.dxf
As you can see, both files have equal contents (”DRAWING 2”)

Expected results:

1. Files have their own contents.
2. Dialogs asking to save files disappear when checking “Yes”, “Cancel” or “Discard” 3. Tabs don’t change titles and associated file names when other tabs are closed.

Task Description

Hi,

In ‘Application preferences, Draw, Text’ fonts can be selected.

There is a mixing up between fonts (the appearance of characters on screen) and code tables (what digital code is used for each character).

‘ISO8859-11’ is the 8 bit Thai (!) code table and not a font
‘Unicode’ is the 16 bit code table and not a font.

For downward comptability QCAD should use default font Standard (ISO3098) with code table ISO8859-1 (US-ASCII Latin-1).

Started working my way through the user manual, tried to save a new file as ‘example’ and QCAD (64 bit Pro) crashed. Tried a few times with Save and Save As, empty files and a simple rectangle and it crashed every time.

Removed and re-installed the 64 bit version - same problem

Downloaded, installed 32 bit version as work around - works fine

 1450 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh File > Save: Invalid Symbol Table Name Closed

Task Description

Opens an Autocad .dwg file happily (Pro version x64). Allows you to make changes, when you go to save (or save as), you get the “Invalid symbol table name”.

It should figure this out when file is opened and squawk immediately.

Would be extremely useful to get some additional error details that might allow one to diagnose and fix the problem. i.e. “Invalid symbol table name: _” with the name of the offender.

I tried removing unused blocks, no joy.

25 Task Description

There is one important ACAD feature that I would really like to see supported in QCAD3 and that is “Layouts”

Looking at the block lists, it seems to me that it can’t be too much extra work to support it, since the model space and different paper spaces are already shown there - and one can edit it.

QCAD draws infinitely easier than ACAD and drawing layouts is a primary feature of ACAD. With this in QCAD I can hardly see why anyone that does 2D work would need ACAD at all.

Task Description

I just use QCAD3 for the first time. I work with OpenSuse 12.2.
After having unpacked the downloaded package, I am able to start QCAD3 with the QCAD command icon.
Check shows that i used the most actual version.
Obviously no further installation steps are necessary.
I am able to draw some lines, etc.
However, when trying to select a font, I recognized that the computer hangs at least for 5 minutes.
The CPU load is about 50%, and i am not able to move the mouse and to do anything else.
During this time, sometimes there is access to disk, sometimes not.
So, in order lo cancel the hanging, i must make a hard system reboot.
Before i have entered the font selection, i have tried to look into the help options.
However, It was not possible to get the FAQs and the QCAD forum, so i am not aware about similar documented problems.
I have looked after similar bugs, using the words ‘text, font’. No similar bugs found.

 707 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium segmentation fault on every start - after crash Closed
100%
Task Description

I was drawing on a drawing done in qcad2 - and now working on it in qcad3 - where I had saved it in the new dxf 2010 format (if this has any relevance) and then the computer ran out of power (old battery - I missed that I hadn’t turned on external power) - and shut down hard.

When I rebooted and tried to start qcad - it crashed on startup - giving only this output:
Debug: TIMER: 42 ms - “loading plugins”
Debug: TIMER: 459 ms - “initializing plugins”
./qcad/qcad: line 38: 2955 Segmentation fault (core dumped) LD_LIBRARY_PATH=”$DIR” “$binary” $OPT1 $OPT2 “$@”

I then tried removing the entire qcad-3.0.0-prof-linux-alt-x86 folder - and unpackaging the install tar.gz again.

It then started up and came to initializing plugins - 79% - and just hung - I’ve attached screenshot.

After I ctrl+c’ed it - it segfaulted and now it won’t even show the startup splash again.

I’m guessing qcad has saved some state somewhere.. but qcad hasn’t made a ~klavs/.qcad - so I don’t know where it is.

I would very much like to be able to use qcad again :(

 1293 QCAD/CAMBug ReportMedium Crash when snapping to intersection points between 3d l ...Closed
100%
Task Description

I have a file that makes QCAD crash. I’ve been editing this design across different versions of QCAD over time and this is the first time I have a problem with it.

Steps to reproduce:
Open the attached file and try to add some entities or dimensions to it (you may need to create large ones since it seems to depend on the zoom factor; for example a very large ellipse). After a freeze of a few seconds QCAD will quit.

The attached file is a simplified version from which I deleted a number of entities; on the original I can’t do anything – QCAD crashes as soon as I try to create any object.
