 1615 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Decimal point of dimensions shown as '?', preferences p ...Closed
100%
Task Description

First. I am not able to find OS selection for macOS Sierra so I choose Mac OS X.
I noticed that when I opened my drawing, I saw dimensions on drawing showed ‘156?6’ instead of ‘156.6’ in prior version I had installed. Probably in 3.16.5

So I opened Dimension Settings page to review and found when opening Dimension Settings under Drawing Preferences,
Dimension Settings does not show. It remains blank.

Then I clicked on other settings menu item from left and clicked back on the Dimension Settings I was able to see the Dimension setting.
However; when I closed the dialog and try to open the Dimension Settings again, I am not able to see the settings page at all. Just blank. I can see other settings page fine.

One time when I was able to see the Dimension Setting, I noticed that the Separator symbol was blank. So I updated that to ‘.’ and hit OK.
The drawing still shows ‘156?6’ instead of expected ‘156.6’.

It seems the separator symbol is not being saved for some reason.

 1589 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Placing parts from library error: wrong parts of item Closed
100%
Task Description

I made a set of places for dip chips. I did not met any problem until I add “bottom” and “top” designation :)

Now if I add to the drawing narrow place first, then wide one, wide place has “top” as narrow, and vice versa: if the wide place is first, then narrow will have wide “cap”. Same is with library items, based on these places... Maybe it is because block of the “top” have same number and are treaten as same?

In the attach you may see library items and two resulting files.

I’m using this version: qcad-3.17.1-trial-linux-x86_32.tar.gz

Thanks!

 1588 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow "hole" realisation Closed
100%
Task Description

Trying to design PCB with QCad (as hobby ;) I found an inconvenience with routing tracks through holes: I need end one line, snapped to the one edge of contact pad and start new line from other side of the pad, otherwise if line goes through the hole and covers it, hole disappears or becomes damaged; or I need to clean each hole of track parts before printing.

so, subject is: to define a certain area of white or background colour, so if any object (line or other shape) intersects it, it will be just invisible inside this area. they may still be visible, say, in draft mode.

I’ve been thinkig about simpliest way to make it, but not sure. Maybe it can be an additional property of the hatch, or it can be specific “background” solid colour, which can be applied to the hatch (apply this colour to other kind of object is not a good idea).

Then contact pad can be defined as shape with smaller round hatch inside to designate hole, so we can route lines, snapping them to the hole centers, not caring about clearing these holes later of little pieces of tracks.

Maybe it can be usefull :) Thanks for your great work!

Task Description

Hi,

if I create in a new drawing a layer list and use the Show all Layers / Hide all Layers function everything works as expected.

If I hide one or more Layers individually and directly in the Layer List (click on the Eye) I can’t make them visible with the Show all Layer function. It looks like individual hidden Layer are protected with a higher priority.

If I load an “old” drawing all individual settings for a hidden Layer are with a higher priority than Show all Layers. If I click every single Eye for each Layer to make them visible then I’m again able to toggle the visibility for all Layer in once.

0%
1 Task Description

Hi,

unfortunately I need to use from time to time different Units in a drawing. It works nice with the Scale possibility but to keep my drawing readable I need to label then the DIM accordingly. Sadly I don’t have a Postfix option so I work with a workaround what means I use <>”, or <>’ and <>mm in the Prefix field. If I then terminate the DIM tool and start it again I will loose my settings except the Scale Factor.

May I ask for an additional Postfix option or/and a remember functionality of those fields?

 1572 QCAD Community EditionBug ReportLow Dimension font not set to "Standard" when importing thr ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Since updating to QCAD 3.16 on MacOS, my dimension font face suddenly changed to something very unattractive and I can’t figure out how to reset it. I tried deleting QCAD and all references to it in ~/Library and then reinstalling, but no luck. Something weird has gone wrong with QCAD’s fonts.

The font change has made it impossible to open and redraw many DXF files because the new font face is larger and wider spaced and it ruins the layout of many documents.

Attached is an example of what the same DXF file looked like in the prior QCAD version, and the new version. No change to the DXF file.
