 981 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow New tool: Ellipse - Equidistant Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Bug or Feature request?

Tool “Parallel” is not working on an intact ellipse. If I explode the ellipse it will work but then it turns out to a Sisyphus task ... ;-)

Task Description

3.0 RC1

The Stretch Tool works only for one task and than you have to reselect it again for the next task.
Who really works with the stretch tool has to use it (often) a couple times consecutively to get the job done.

It was nice working in 2.2.2.0

Task Description

Exploding a usual block - no problems.
Exploding a dimension - it will freeze the explode tool until I reset the tool or use another tool. New drawing / old drawing doesn’t matter.

 1325 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Modify > Auto Trim: trims to invisible entities Closed
100%
Task Description

“Autotrim” ignores status on invisible and/or blocked layer and will still trim along invisible entities.

 1272 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Modify > Auto Trim: not undoable when used on spline Closed
100%
Task Description

Scenario 1:
like to use “Breakout segment” on a spline,
Status bar tells me that I CAN use this tool on a spline,
Breakout: works,
Undo: works,
Everything fine ...

Scenario 2:
like to use “Breakout manual” on a spline,
Status bar tells me NOT to use this tool on a spline but ...
Breakout manual: works,
Undo: works,
I think just the status bar needs an Infotext update.

Scenario 3:
like to use “Auto Trim” on a spline,
Status bar tells me NOT to use this tool on a spline but ...
Auto Trim: works,
Undo: works NOT,
I think the status bar needs an Infotext update and I guess in the undo function is a bug.

 738 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Lost Layer and Block List caused by closing the empty " ...Closed
100%
Task Description

XP32 / 3.0.5

Example case:
I open QCAD and I have automatically the “Untitled 1” drawing.
If I open now an additional, saved drawing I have all Blocks and Layer listed and I’m able to work normal with my drawing ...
If the “Untitled 1” drawing is NOT the active drawing and I close it with the X in the Tab I will lose the Layer and Block List (only the List!) in the other drawing ....

I have to play around with QCAD “Window minimizing” “Draft mode” or I have to reopen the drawing to get the Layer/Block List back!
Seems to be a refresh problem .....

Funny is that this not occurs if I have opened a couple drawings .... but in this case I’m able to switch (and refresh?) the drawings with the tabs ....

 1020 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Line2PEx, Option-bar for angles disregard the Decimal P ...Closed
100%
Task Description

My QCAD setting for “Decimal Points” is “dot” instead of “comma”.
(Application Preferences, General, Coordinate Format, Decimal Point: Dot ‘.’(Default))

The new Line2PEx tool will only accept a comma - if I use a dot it will be automatically replaced by a comma.
The displayed angle in the drawing will use a dot.
No red Text font warning for using an invalid value.

I used a screen-shot with an additional coordinate option to make it a bit clearer:

 559 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Library Symbole mit gleichen Namen wie in der Zeichnung ...Closed

Task Description

Blocknamen in einer Zeichnung haben Vorrang gegenüber gleichen Blocknamen aus der Library.

Eine Sicherheitsabfrage wie z.B.: Vorhanden Block überschreiben, ignorieren etc oder neuen Block umbenennen würde viele Überraschungen verhindern.

 576 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Library Browser Fensterposition merken ... Closed
100%
Task Description

XP

Ich würde es begrüßen wenn der Library Browser sich seine letzte Fenster Position und Größeneinstellungen “merken” könnte.
Zudem wäre es schön wenn er im letzten Modus öffnen würde - ich benutze zur Zeit überwiegend die Registerkarte “File System” zu der ich dann jedes mal neu navigieren muss.
Auch wäre es schön wenn das Browserfenster minimiert oder in den Hintergrund verschwindet sobald ich ein Symbol in die QCad Zeichenfläche ziehe - momentan kommt es oft vor das ich zwar das Symbol am “Maushaken” habe aber das Browserfenster im Weg ist. Um QCad in den Vordergrund zu holen muss ich die Zeichenfläche anklicken was aber dann natürlich schon das Symbol (an einer falschen Stelle) einfügt ...

 587 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Library Browser / Favoriten Verwaltung ganze Ordner ein ...Closed

Task Description

Es wäre hilfreich wenn man in der Favoriten Verwaltung des Library Browsers nicht nur einzelne Symbole sondern auch ganze Ordner hinzufügen könnte.

 583 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Leere Layer als solche kennzeichnen ... Closed
100%
Task Description

Im Zuge einer Zeichnungserstellung entstehen viele Layer.
Auch Library Items oder Kopien aus anderen Zeichnungen können noch viele Layer hinzu bringen.
Um die Übersicht zu behalten sollten deshalb nicht oder nicht mehr gebrauchte “Leere Layer” nach Fertigstellung (oder auch zwischendurch) der Zeichnung entfernt werden.
Diese herauszufinden gestaltet sich als sehr aufwendig weshalb ich eine Kennzeichnung der leeren Layer als sehr nützlich empfinden würde.

 1670 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Layout Blocks are not using print settings from Applica ...Closed
100%
Task Description

My settings below Application Preferences:
Dimension Settings
Drawing Unit: Inch
Paper Unit: Inch
Measurement System: Imperial

Printing - Page
Page Orientation: Landscape
Paper size: ANSI A (Letter)
Paper width: 8.5” Paper height: 11”

Printing Colors
Color Mode: Black / white

Blank QCAD template used as the start drawing.

Issue in Layout Block

Printing Color Black/White changed to “Full Color Mode”,
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,

Paper orientation preset to Landscape is then Portrait in Layout Block

 1582 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Layer > Show all Layers / Hide all Layers: unexpected o ...Closed
100%
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.

Task Description

QCAD moves - regardless the cancellation - all selected entities to the active layer. :-(

 592 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Kreis Punktfunktion erweitern auf Elemente ... Closed
100%
Task Description

Es wäre schön wenn ich einen Kreis zwischen Elemente platzieren könnte indem ich die Begrenzung nicht durch Punkte sondern durch Elemente angeben könnte. Eine Auswahl von 2-3 Elementen mit/ohne Radius soll den Kreis Geometrisch korrekt an die Begrenzungselemente anschließen lassen.
Hilfskonstruktionen oder der Umweg über Round RN (was allerdings nur bei geraden Linien funktionieren kann) würden dadurch entfallen.

Laienhaft könnte ich mir vorstellen das die Grundlage für diese Funktion bereits in der Round (RN) Funktion existiert ...

QCAD start,
Application Preferences:

Changed the Drawing Preferences to:
Units: mm
Dim: Decimal

Design a Dim and it will be created with the mm/Deci settings - as expected,

Select now the Dim - activate the ISO Tool - the try to determine the reference point fails / it’s way of the clicked point and now the produced ISO Projection will use the attributes for DIM’s from the “Application Preferences” setting - hmmmmmmm, not as expected :-(

If I use in an area with invisible Blocks the “rectangular selection” in “lower left to upper right” direction for a move/copy, mirror, clipboard etc. action - a warning window appear. Also the reference points of the invisible blocks are visible.

Task Description

3.0.8

If I use the Info Tool Polygonal Area and decide to close it with a right mouse click the “Show information” dialog window pops up - just as expected.
If I close the Dialog window with the OK Button .... a “CAD Tools” Menu pops up. Not expected ;-)

By the way - any chance to control the number of digits after the decimal point in the Info dialog window? 15 decimal places are most of the time just to much!
