Hi I am having an issue with the attached DWG file, when I try to open the file qcad opens then immediately crashes and I am unable to do anything.

1833QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDeep synchronize attributes featureAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

There is the Synchronize attributes feature which works well. But It affects only block references in the active layout(modelspace, block layout). If I want to synchronize attributes of block references in in another blocks, i have to manually go through all blocks and run synchronize attributes feature. That is the reason I would like to modify Synchronize attributes feature to affect all block references in a drawing, or add new Deep synchronize attributes feature.

 1832 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Modify > Explode: attributes of block references are or ...Closed
100%
1 Task Description

In a the modelspace I have a block reference of a block(parent), which includes block references (with attributes) of another blocks(child). Than I select this parent block reference and choose Explode. The result is, that the child block references have visible attributes, but they are not connected to the block reference anymore (I can not see them in property editor when the child block is selected). Than when I choose synchronize attributes, new attributes with default values will appear.
I am not sure it his is a bug or expected behavior of the Explode feature.

If it is not a bug, I would like to have new Extract feature, which would copy the content of the selected block reference and immediately insert it exactly to the same place (attributes would be still connected to child references) Extracted block reference would be than removed. Optionally, it could delete the block definition if it is not used anymore in the drawing (but there is already Block Purge feature which will do this).

 1831 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Block > Copy Block: attributes of block references are  ...Closed
100%
1 Task Description

1) Open the attached dxf file
2) Right click on “vne_vent_odvod_ec_3f” block in Block list and select Copy block
3) Choose name
4) Insert reference of this Copy block to the modelspace
5) Save the file
6) Close and reopen the file

RESULT: Attributes of block references included in the original block are missing in the copied block.
Immediately after insertion of the copied block I can see in the property editor, that block reference attributes are not “conected” to the block reference, but they are still visible. They disappear when the file is reopen.

Alternative way I use to copy this kind of blocks without error: Open block I want to copy, Select all entities, reference copy of them, paste to modelspace, select them in modelspace and choose create block.

 1830 QCAD/CAMSuggestionLow HP7580 Penplotter Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi Andrew,

I was fiddeling around with a copy of the hpgl postprocessor, and has it adapted, up and running for a HP7580 penplotter. You may add this to QCAD if you like.

Poking and peeking in the other postprocessor files, I found enough information to generate a very acceptable hpgl.plt file now, including the required pen changes.

The purpose of a ‘bracket-field’ (as [S] ) is clear to me. Where are [S#] and [S!] used for?

 1820 QCAD/CAMBug ReportMedium CAM Export: exporting text entities broken Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Kubuntu, QCAD/CAM 3.21.3

Font Standard. Selected as ‘single line’ font for engraving with mill or laser.

While CAM Exporting as G-code Laser (Offset) MM, or as Linux CNC, Exporting gets trapped in a loop.

In Font Standard the glyph’s ? & $ @ s S Q and 2 contains unwanted Z-movements. It seems these glyphs entities are not alligned properly; endpoint last line does not meet startpoint next line; why else the Z-movements?

Could this misallignment also traps Exporting?

 FS#1813  Revisited. (Several bugs in QCAD/CAM 3.21.3. when generating G-code in “G-code Laser (offset).)

Hi Andrew,

After closing the bug notification I realised I didn’t add the DXF. My apologies for not attaching the DXF-file at hand.

Fortunately I am not the only one;

You can fix the missing G01 by replacing your file postprocessors/GCodeLaserOffsetMM.js with the attached updated file.

Since it was not attached, that makes two of us.

Anyway I have attached the DXF-file to be tested.

Task Description

Having a multi selection and at least one ‘older’ arc the startpoint indication in red of some entities might disappear.

Entities that suffer from this are:
Other arcs
Polyline
Splines

Only the ‘oldest’ arc in selection will have a startpoit indication.
Multi selection of ‘newer’ entities from the list above will not if an ‘older’ arc is part of the selection.
Deselecting de ‘older’ arcs will reveal the startpoints up to the ‘oldest’ arc.

In the file provided entities where drew in order from left to right.
Select all and start deseleting arcs from the left.

The behaviour is affected by changing the draw order property and a save/close/open.
In the second file the rightmost arc was set to draw order 7, the same as the 4th was.
After save/close/open it is renumbered to 8 and the behaviour is different as in the firts file.

Regarding to an observation by the forum member Horst1803
http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=92&t=5725

The ruler functionality is compromised by Graphics View / Grid settings.
To show the full Ruler functionality “Automatic scale grid” has to be activated. I think that is not intended behavior.

Case: Appearance / Show rulers = activated

 1792 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dimension > Angular: transformations broken Closed
100%
2 Task Description

(I originally described the problem in the forum: https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=5721 )
(The problem was also reproduced by user “Husky” so it not installation specific.)

I have a model where one of the details is as shown in attachment 1

However, when I create a viewport and display the part in the the layout the angular measurement is another. See attachment 2.

In the model it should be noted that the part displayed is a detail copied with a different scale as to Zoom in on a detail in order to put dimensions on it. It was created by copying a part of the model and pasting it back in the model but with 3x zoom.

I have also included the full .dxf file in the hope that it helps you both reproduce and fix this issue

Note: The same problem seems to also produce “ghostlines” in other viewports in the layout which is not present in the model. Removing the angular measurement also removed the ghostline. You can observe the issue by looking at layout2 and you can see a line (dimension layer) going from top right corner of the viewport towards the lower left. This line is not present in the model and appears to be some strange extension to the angular dimension the detail that is just to the top right in the model.

0%
1 Task Description

Hi Andrew,

we know that you need to have always software performance in your mind to decide which features / tools can / should be implemented and on which way.

I really appreciate your effort to find the best middle way between software features and performance but I think also it’s a tough call to appraise worldwide the overall customer equipment to make the software workable to the best for everybody. That isn’t possible without compromise.

Maybe it would make sense to think about a new dialog in the “Application Preferences” to let the user decide what kind of feature are absolutely needed regarding to his/her work-task / equipment. I don’t mean that you need to cover every single thing but the main “performance jeopardy’s” should be covered with an on/off switch.

Yes I know - that isn’t done in 5 minutes but I think that can make your life easier in the long run and will cover even more customer.

Just my two cents. ;)
