 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.

 518 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Unable to use Library browser properly in RC4 Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi Andrew

In Ubuntu 11.10 and Windows 7 everything so far is working ok in QCAD apart from the Library browser!

1.In Win 7-64 I can run the browser and make a new folder, but when I try to set the permissions/open the folder - browser crashes.

2.In ubuntu 11.10 I first uninstalled RC2 then installed RC4. QCAD program runs ok but this time when I try to open up the browser (not a new folder)I get an error message stating that I do not have permissions to open the first file (vehicle -I think!)in RC2? If I select OK in the warning window the warning just keeps on repeating the same message for the next and subsequent files until I quit it.

1 Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Currently the only option to insert a viewport is using the central insertion point, for better placement it would be useful to have an option to insert viewports at any of the four corners in addition to the centre.

Hope that makes sense.

I’m not sure whether this has been added or suggested already. It would be great to have a built in QCAD table tool for producing cutting lists or bill of materials etc. A dedicated table tool would be a real boost to QCAD Pro ;)

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

0%
Task Description

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

 1568 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Issues: Snaps, Trim, Green selection tool Closed
100%
Task Description

Hello,

There is some issues with the snap tool and the selection tool.The trim button only trims some lines but not all.

1. The snap tool does not let me snap to certain things when i select something. For example i will select a box and i will try to extend the corner to another entities corner but the snap is not there so its free and thus not accurate.

2. For some reason the selection tool does not allow me to select certain things. If i have two boxes overlapping and i use the selection tool (from right to left “green selection box”) it does not allow me to select what i want i have to actually click it. This is annoying when it comes to selecting specific things.

3. The trim tool does not work properly.If i want to trim the inside of a cross hair or such, it only allows me to trim the inside of one line and if i try to trim the other it deletes the complete line.

Please fix as soon as possible. Thanks

When using the info tools, like the point to point measure it would be useful to be able to select a scale as well.

For all the Linux VI editor geeks, can you disable the <ESC> function in the text edit mode. <ESC> maps to <cancel>. If anything it should map to <ok>. Which creates no harm as it can be later undone. I have accidentally lost edits countless times due to an unbreakable habit.

It would be extreamly useful to have an option to either use - or not use leader lines in the standard horizontal/vertical dimension line tools, some of the drawings I’m working on need the ‘standard’ looking dimensions with leader lines and some don’t. its a real pain to have to select - explode and delete all the leaders I don’t need.

Hoping for an option

This one is a really important one for me, as currently I am doing a lot of dimension and annotation drawings.
I would like to request an option to be added to the dimension settings for both drawing and application settings to be able to choose whether the dimension text is to the right or left side or over the top or underneath the dimension line.
This would help tremendously when a lot of dimensions are needed!
