Task Description

C++ plugin interface to add functionality from existing C / C++ libraries to QCAD.

 624 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Line pattern scale Closed
100%
Task Description

If we use a dash line type and set the overall linetype factor to 100 on a drawing (plan of 20metres x 20 metres approx) and then come to print it on A3, the linetype is not being scalled back from 20metres to suit the page extents.

So instead of lots of dashes we see just 2 strikes across the page. For now we set the linefactor low, which is good for printing, but now appears a solid line in the display unless we really zoom in.

Task Description

please see:
http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=1177

from LeoP

” What would be really useful is a method to select entities by type, rather than by location or layer.

It could have a user interface like the snap command with buttons for the entity type to select, or like the line command with a drop-down box.

This would enable one to quickly select e.g. all texts in a drawing for subsequent attribute modification. Now one has to select each text individually if the texts are scattered over the drawing and layers...”

631QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOption "Scale" für das öffnen von Templates ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Wenn ich eine Zeichnung plane überlege ich mir natürlich im Vorfeld welche Blattgröße und welchen Maßstab ich verwenden möchte.

Wenn ich Templates (z.B. Zeichnungsblatt A4) für die Blattgröße öffnen könnte und dabei direkt einen Skalierungsfaktor (z.B. 10) vorgeben könnte hätte ich ohne Umwege gleich alles was man braucht. In diesem Fall ein A4 Blatt im Maßstab 1:10.

Im Grunde genommen das selbe was ich bereits mit Library Items machen kann ... ;-)

 632 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Text Höhe default in Application Preferences / Drawing  ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Es wäre Hilfreich für eine eigene durchgängige Standardisierung die möglichkeit zu haben Default Texthöhen in den Application/ Drawing Preferences vorgeben zu können.

Perfekt wäre in meinen Augen das man drei Texthöhen vorgeben könnte wie z.B. 2.5mm, 3.5mm, 5mm die bei der Eingabe von Text (oder beim editieren) per Schalter gewählt werden könnten. Das individuelle eingeben von Texthöhen sollte aber zudem beibehalten werden.

Bei der Bemaßung kann ich dies bereits jetzt für eine Texthöhe einrichten ... ;-)

 636 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow 64 bit compilation Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,

I’m using QCAD2 quite a while now and after moving from FreeBSD-i386 to FreeBSD-amd64 there are some libraries missing in the 32 bit version (libXi and some more).

I’d strongly suggest making a 64 bit compilation of the pro version. The community edition does compile and run on FBSD-amd64 very well.

Maybe ths would better be posted to the suggestion list of the upcoming version 3 ...

Thanks for attention!

637QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowViewports / View ListAssigned
0%
Task Description

1. The Scrollbars for each window in the Viewports has the same size like the normal used scrollbars for windows. If you are working on a normal size Monitor it “steals” a lot of “working space”. Is there any possibility to make the scrollbars smaller or just a line to separate the windows so that I have to navigate with Keyboard and mouse?

2. I thing the Viewports and the View List belongs together - is it possible to get a button in the “View List / Tool Bar” to choose a Viewport style instead of “walking” the long way over the “Drawing preferences” Menu?

638QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFeature request- text find/replace functionAssigned
0%
Task Description

Feature request- text string find/replace

Scope: entire drawing/selected objects set/chosenlayer only

Functionality:

‘find’ with ‘zoom to’, first, next, previous, last

‘replace’ with ‘next’, ‘undo’, ‘all’

This functionality is very useful when using QCad for system diagrams and the like.

639QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAbility to load a file of keyboard shortcutsAssigned
0%
Task Description

It would be useful if a file of keyboard shortcuts to commands could be loaded.

Then a set of shortcuts identical/based on the Autocad keyboard shortcuts can be loaded, making it much easier for Autocad users to migrate to your product.

There does seem to be some future functionality planned here, with the shortcut ‘scheme’ selector in Program Preferences, but for the moment ‘Qcad’ is the only option available.

This strategy is used to great effect by Draftsight (but who trusts a big company like Dassault/Solidworks...)

 643 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Zooming mode of operation Closed
100%
Task Description

I just realized, that Zoom-in and Zoom-out (with the mousewheel) works different from graphical editors I know (as soon as drawing is larger than full screen).

Graphical editor (PSP X2 (and other too I think)):
Will make the position of the cursor the center of the drawing area. Thus allowing very fast to reposition the viewable area without changing into a move mode (Hand icon) and without the rulers on the left or down of the drawing area. The reposition is very handsome!
But this solution is only half way practical: If you use the wheel twice to zoom twice in sequence without moving the cursor, it will reposition the image twice - this double reposition is not practical at all, as the second reposition is rather random!

QCAD:
Lets the center unchanged and just zooms-in or Zooms-out.
.

My proposal:
- Zoom-in or Zoom-out around the current position of the cursor
- move this current position to the center of the screen
- move the cursor itself to the center of the screen (thus avoiding to shift the image again with a subsequent zoom-operation

  1. if the user uses a second zoom-op the new center remains mostly fixed. This would allow best of both solutions:
  2. but the user is free to make an other area of the drawing the new center if he actively moves the cursor again.

I think this would be very simple, intuitive and efficient to handle, reducing the need to reposition the drawing manually a lot.

Actually I think earlier version of graphical editors I used worked with were implemented that way.

Caveat:
I’m not an extensive CAD user. Maybe there are special requests for this type of work that are in contradiction to my idea. Maybe it would be practical to activate this type of zooming when used along with <ALT>. Hmmm - no: Allow original QCAD-zooming with <ALT>!

.

By the way:
Mouse right-click seems never assigned in QCAD. In Windows a user usually expects ‘Properties’ to be activated with right-click. But I think with the clever way you implemented this, there is no real need to change this. As the standard is already broken: Why not assign permanently a ‘Move’ (Hand icon) to ‘right-click’...

 654 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Text missing from dwg import (block attributes) Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi Andrew,

I am guessing this is an external library, but you maybe able to push it upstream.

Certain Autocad DWG files with embeded blocks fail to display text that was associated with them. For example see grid ref D.03 in the attached autocad drawing, the circles are terminals and should have nos in them.

Have tried exploding them in qcad etc, but nothing.

 656 QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery Low Data should not be in programs directory Closed
100%
Task Description

QCAD2 offered the user to specify in the program settings where these directories should be/go, and took the first one in each list as default; QCAD3 only offers to enter auxiliary library and template directories and has no provisions for defaults.

All associated data (scipts, templates, libraries, patterns, fonts) is stored under the program directory, exactly where it should not be. Windows 7 and higher default prevent modifying the programs directory by redirecting the writes.
An extra user-input during the Windows install process would be in order.

QCAD3 should offer the user to specify any and all data directories involved (including the auto save), and make it possible to specify a default for each.
This list could be initialised with the installation defaults, or default to the installation directories when empty.

 657 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Auto Zoom applied too often Closed
100%
Task Description

Auto Zoom should not be applied every time you go back and forth between editing a block and the main drawing.
At least, not by default: it just isn’t practical. QCAD2 didn’t do it...

 663 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow (de-)select by property Closed
100%
Task Description

It would be nice if one could
- select
- deselect from the current selection
all entities with a specific property, for example:
- all entities which are texts
- all entities with angle === 180
- all entities with color !== red
The current property editor has the perfect gui for it. On a similar gui one could change a value there which changes the selection instead of the properties of the selected entities.

I think there would be no need for “and” or “or”, if the current selection can be reduced or extended.

675QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOption for fixed Text and Dimension heights ...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

I think it would be nice to have the possibility to decide a fixed Text and Dimension (inclusive Arrows) height what is not affected by the Print scale. That means: If I have a given height of 3,5mm it will always be printed with 3,5mm - no matter what the scale for the printing is.
Yes, I see also the problem that I could run in space problems after I twitch to the Print preview - but that will also happen when I change the Text hight in the preferences for a 5:1 printing.
Maybe this Feature Request doesn’t looks important if you are usually working with Metric Units but if you have to handle Imperial Units then it is a pain in the back to make always the calculation to get the same heights.
Try it by your self; 3,5mm = 0.137795” = 1”:1” Now I like to print it in 1”:256” ops - to small - ok 1”:64” ... no, to big, maybe 1”:128” .......and QCad can’t remember the previously numbers. ;-)

To have a tool that could convert splines to polylines would be useful, particularly for laser cutting work where a nice steady flow is needed, otherwise you can get an erratic ‘jumpy’ movement when cutting..

2. Then if needed convert to a continuous polyline.

703QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowInfo function -> contour for Hatch not closed ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Task: If I like to make a hatch and the contour isn’t closed I get a Grey circle Info where the contour isn’t closed. Nice!

But ..... I have this Info only for ONE not proper connection and only for the moment when the mouse pointer is over the Hatch Tool Symbol.

If I have to zoom into the Problem - I will lose the Info where the problem is :-(

To get the “Problem Info” back I have to select it again - but for that I have to zoom out ............... ;-)

It would be nice to have this “Problem Info” longer in the drawing - maybe until I solved all problems.

And it would be nice to have ALL Infos for not connected lines at the same time. It is not really helpful to repeat this function 20times if I have 20 connection problems ... ;)

It would be nice to implement the old hatch function as a tile function in parallel with the newer more industry standard hatch function. A tile function that would allow overlap +/- would be even better, and a great productivity boost, almost like an array within a set of bounds.

724QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowUseless reference point entering when moving relativelyAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,
this is a usability feature request:

If you want to move an object relatively to any point (e.g. by entering @x;y in commandline) it does’nt make sense to enter a starting reference point. Of course this is possible by clicking to any location on the screen. But it’s difficult to change between mouse and keyboard so often.

It should be possible to enter a “don’t care” or “any” reference point by pressing a keyboard shortcut (e.g. enter like in AutoCAD).

Thx
