1645QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd warning when opening file with 3D contentAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi.

I’m working currently a lot with files coming from rhino. Qcad can open them properly any also most operations on them work as usual - except the selection methods.

box select from upper left to lower right works as usual.
double click to select all connected entities is broken. (only one entity is selected).
box select from lower right to upper left does not select entities touching the selection box. (nothing is selected)

on mac os nothing is selectable with single click.
on linux single click sometimes fails (nothing is selected after clicking on a line).

thanks for looking into this :)

 118 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow addBoundary and hatchData fails silently Closed
100%
Task Description

In scripting hatchData.addBoundary can use any shape, but only some actually produce something useful, eg. this fails silently:

var hatch = new RHatchData(false, 200, 0, "ANSI31");
var polyline = new RPolyline(points, true);
hatch.addBoundary(polyline);

Shouldn’t an exception be thrown?

An additional option would be useful to paste any given entity a set number of times with even/equal gaps in between.

 214 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Adding dimensions to circles or arcs in a block Closed
100%
Task Description

In previous versions I was able to add a diametric dimension to an arc or circle that is part of a block in the overal drawing.
When I try this now, the pogram resonds “Entity is not an arc or circle” the radius dimension gives the same error.
This is unfortunate, because typically dimensions are on another layer in the overal drawing.

0%
2 Task Description

If I work in QCAD only with Toolbars (and not with the “Cad Tools” there is nowhere a Button to find for “Create Block from selection”.
If I have to create a Block based on a selection I have to work with the Menu or have to activate the Cad Tools.

But, if I look at the Blocklist menu there is a function (+) to add an empty Block. It would be nice to have this button working for both situation - empty Block or depending on a selection to “Create Block from selection”.

Or alternative an additional Button ... :-(

Anyway - in my opinion would that make the “Blocklist” complete. :-)

829QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdditional options for the Info Tool Area ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

The Info Tool Polygonal Area is a helpful tool ... but I like to ask for additional options ;-)

Yes, the polygonal area makes absolute sense but many times you have just to check a square or rectangle area!

It would be nice and time (click) saving if we could use a “Strg Key” to limit the polygonal area to just a rectangle area.
Two mouse clicks for a rectangle area and done ;-)

In addition to that it would be nice to have the possibility to count up or down a couple areas.
E.g. I measure area 1 plus area 2 or area 1 minus area 2 ...
Maybe just with an additional keystroke like + or -

100%
Task Description

We have already a powerful projection tool in QCAD - the Isometric tool.

It would be nice to have additional a “Dimetric tool” (Ratio 1:0.5:1, Angle 7°/42°) what is often used in the “Engineering world”.
It looks just more professional than the simple Isometric Projections and I’m pretty sure that could open a couple more Customer doors ;-)

Case:
Working on a Main Drawing, decide to edit a Block, start the editing process, close the editing process with “Return to Main drawing” and come back to the Main Drawing - but unfortunately to an absolute different View in the Main Drawing ...

 1114 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow After Linux update: segfault at startup Closed
100%
Task Description

I’d try to use my qcad today, but cliking the qcad icon had no use. Opened an terminal window and executed whatever was in the icon properties, and it said segfault. Yesterday it worked. There have been an update inbetween, bash have been updated among others.

I’d have dumped uname -a to an file and enclosed it.

I’d have set the severity to critical, cause I’m not able to start qcad at all.

Please ask for any information you need.

Cincerely, Sigmund

100%
Task Description

When defining block attributes, the default text alignment is center.

I changed this to align left and copied an attribute (ctrl + C) and then pasted (ctrl + V) fourteen times.

As I opened each one up with the editor to change the tag information, I noticed that every copied/pasted attribute definition had changed to align right.

I purposely set the first one back to align left and copy/pasted it a few times. Each paste had the attribute text set to align right again.

 368 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Appearance preference Closed
100%
Task Description

RC1 is lazy in saving appearance to config. I noticed, because it always started with default window size. Maximizing was not carried over, also the panels were consistently reset.

Only when eg. dragging the handle to change cad-toolbar width not from preferences it would write an “appearance” section to the config file.

The appearance section should be written rather sooner than later.

1472QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowArc fit tool to improve large filesAssigned
0%
Task Description

Large files/large entities perform bad in QCad. There are many dxf files that are created with thousand of lines that perform reasonable in other cad’s/cam’s that qcad cannot match.

One very useful tool, that could be added would help to improve qcad performance and at the same time enlarge the dxf quality (by replacing thousand of files by arcs), would be a tool called “arc fit” where, when possible and under a determined possible error margin (user selectable) creates arcs replacing the existing lines.
This would improve the file work in QCad also improves CAM software that would work after QCad, that I think is important for many users.

For example, if it is needed to use qcad to generate toolpaths for letters, after exploding letters, the output is almost impossible to work due to the number of lines that are created. Having arcs instead of lines would greatly improve qcad use.

 290 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Arrow on Leaders do not scale  Closed
100%
Task Description

I consider this a bug or at least poor software design.

When I edit the drawing preferences and change the arrow size (under the Dimensions tab), the arrows of my dimensions change as expected, but those of the leaders to not change.

No drawing preference exists to adjust the leaders separately, and scaling a leader does not scale its arrow. I currently must delete my leaders and redraw them completely to change the arrow size. Very inconvenient.

P.S. I’m using QCad 2.0.5.0-Free-1 (Community Edition) and didn’t see that version in your list. Does it have another name?

Ziehe ich mit der Maus eine normale Auswahlbox kann ich Elemente markieren.
Möchte ich einzelne Bereiche wieder herausnehmen muss ich alle Elemente einzeln anklicken (mit gedrückter Shift Taste).
Ich kann zwar dies komfortabler gestalten mit der Select → (De -) Select Contour Funktion welche aber erst über das Menue aufgerufen werden muss.

So wie ich einzelne Elemente mit der Maus auswählen und mit der Shift-Maus Funktion deselektieren kann wäre es schön wenn die Shift Taste auch bei Auswahlbereichen direkt zum deselektieren eingesetzt werden könnte.
