For example can try on “flange.dxf”

1005QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMaking use of mouse buttons configurableAssigned
0%
Task Description

According to the help, one requires a middle mouse to pan. Since few standard mice have middle buttons, this is a poor choice for this all important function. The default should be the right mouse button when ever the mouse is placed in an open area with nothing else to select. That way right click can still be used to invoke a pop down menu when ever the mouse is placed over an object that might have a need for pop down menu options. Additionally, the Pan mouse key should be alterable and selectable from a Preferences option, since if one does have a three button mouse, we should not prevent a user from employing this hardware if they have it. The same might be said for all mouse buttons to allow the user to configure the mouse operation to that which is most comfortable and efficient for their tasks.

1009QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLayer Order is Alphabetical vs the Order Defined Origin...Assigned
0%
Task Description

It would appear that when QCAD imports a DXF, it reorders the layers into alphabetical order (at least when importing R2011). I have not tested this extensively but on other programs, the order is different from alphabetical. Ideally the operator should be given a choice to order the layers as exported (assuming the DXF format remembers that) or alphabetical. This is because a drawing may have a certain stack up of layers (like a printed circuit board) and then alphabetic ordering is not useful nor desired.

Task Description

It would be nice if the OS X Pro version could support the standard OS X full screen pattern in the same way as native OS X applications.

With this I mean that applications in full screen will create a temporary new desktop as long as they are in full screen mode.

 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.

When exporting bitmap images the crop is just a bit too tight, and is resulting in lost parts of the drawing. In QCAD2 there was a very small padding of pixels around the exported object that prevented that problem.

 1004 DocumentationBug ReportLow QCAD e-book not searchable in Preview, Acrobat Closed
100%
Task Description

I just downloaded QCAD and bought the doc that goes with it. Lo and behold, I find that I cannot search the doc in Preview (Acrorbat Reader too!)! So I paid extra for doc that might be argued should come with a product (although its hard to complain about the price) and then I cannot even search it electronically? There is just everything wrong with that in the year 2014! Please fix as it is extremely inefficient and time consuming to not have electronic search capability.

 1011 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Y,R Works only some of the time! Closed
100%
Task Description

On a 2011 MacBook Air, the Y,R key combination for deleting layers barely works. It does in fact delete a layer occasionally, and oddly it appears to go in spurts. But it does not consistently work which significantly reduces its usefulness.

While on the matter, the reason to use YR is mostly because there is no bulk way to select a bunch of layers and delete them! This is a real pain if needing to separate layers apart (becomes some CAM programs will only accept one layer per file. We need a way to select a bunch of layers, and just delete the whole lot at one time.

 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.

 1204 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Possible Library Indexing bug Closed
100%
Task Description

26 April 2015

I have the Library browser set up per instructions from website. The following is about as good an explanation as I can come up with for now.

When I open the program the software keeps trying to update the library index at start-up regardless of whether “Update search index on start-up” is checked or unchecked (this happens when there are items installed into the library and show up in the browser window). However, if I have no library components installed and open the program the software does not try to update the index and immediately opens the main program window (when the index at start-up is unchecked). I can use the manual method to update the index at that time. However after doing that, same thing happens. When I close out and restart the program again the software will want to update the index before the main window opens up (with the index at start-up unchecked).

I have uninstalled the program and reinstalled it again to no avail. It still does the same thing. Therefore I have to wait around 30 sec to 1 minute to wait for and update of the index depending on what I have in the library browser at any one time. Most times I open the program I don’t need index updating as there are no new items to add to the library.

 1508 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow QCAD CE: Subscript and superscript formatting lost when ...Closed
100%
Task Description

When multiple superscripts or subscripts are used in a text field, re-opening the saved dxf file will fail to render all but the first super/subscript element. As per attached example. Bug occurs on all Mac OS X from Mavericks onward.

Minimal reproducible steps:
1. Open new document in QCAD
2. Add a text object
3. Make part of the text sub or super-script
4. Make another part of the text also sub/superscript, with at least one ‘normal’ character between the two sub/superscripts
5. Save file and close it. Don’t have to quit QCAD.
6. Reopen the file. Voila, all but the first sub/superscript element is broken.

Dan.

ps. QCAD is a pretty great piece of software, nice work all.

 1690 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Issue with Layers Closed
100%
Task Description

QCad 3.19.2 Professional, 64bit, Liux Mint

Case:
1. We have drawing with hierarchical layers.
2. When try for example to lock all layers from “Layer List Widget” by clicking to “Toggle lock” at Parent Layer. Then locked are all layers in this group. Same is with “Toggle snappable”, “Toggle plottable”, “Toggle frozen”. All works as expected. But “Toggle visibility” works only on this one parent layer.

Task Description

Hello. My question is: can I run my script under Linux QCAD using Linux command prompt.
Something like this. Print in terminal: “./qcad myscript.qs” And can the script executing without QCAD GUI? I need to make my drawing by printing specific command in linux command prompt without using GUI. So after script end his work I want to have my drawing at destination directory.

Thank you.

 1006 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Making zoom in / out speed configurable Closed
100%
2 Task Description

Although this report is specific to Magic Mouse on OS-X Mountain Lion, since mice are a fairly common commodity across all platforms, I suspect this may be a more common issue across multiple platforms. The issue is that with my Magic Mouse, when I zoom into or out of the drawing by dragging my finger forward or backward on the mouse (equivalent of rolling the scroll wheel of a mechanical mouse), the zoom keeps zooming (in either direction) LONG after I have stopped moving my finger! Now, I do have my scroll speed set high because I have a large monitor and like to get around on it fast. But QCAD is the only application that does this exaggerated scrolling, so there must be some missing conversion or time constant issue going on here. I could change the speed of my mouse and that would likely fix it: in QCAD. But then all my other apps would be too slow with the mouse. Maybe there needs to be a custom setting in the Preferences that allows to user to set the mouse speed for just inside QCAD. But I suspect its more just a mouse speed parameter conversion error.

 1007 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Making zoom in / out direction configurable Closed
100%
Task Description

Maybe I missed it, but there does not appear to be a Preference selection for changing the zoom direction. The default is opposite the way it is on other programs and I would like to change it to be consistent between all my programs. My other programs provide this ability so I suppose I could change all of them, but that appears Orwellian on QCADs part.
