IDCategoryTask TypeSeveritySummary  descStatusProgress
 619 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Status bar - X,Y etc. input fields  Closed
100%
Task Description

It could be very useful to have in the status bar area - input fields for typing in X and Y position, Distance and Angle etc...

For example these could be used instead of entering absolute/relative coordinates in the command line.

1.Draw line.
2.Start point - enter in X Field.
3.Next point - enter in Y Field.

This method could also be used for specifying positions when placing other entities.

For me I tend to use a combination of the command line/GUI for most work but I think for those who do not wish to use the command line this could be useful.

100%
Task Description

Hi,

If you open an old qcad drawing thats DXF and edit text, the popup window shows “Main Font” as empty.

If you do not set the font and complete the edit, it will change the font from the standard to what looks like an Arial font.

If you set the font as “standard” during the edit, each time in future you open the editor it does at least have standard selected.

Ie if no font is specified in drawing, should it not select “standard”?

0%
Task Description

Attached DWG/DXF files are incorrectly read by QCAD.
They contain splines drawn using ZWCAD and saved as DWG/DXF version 2000.
Above splines are polylines created with autolisp routine which converts spline to polyline, so you can see how splines should actually be drawn.

First spline is created with fit points: 2,2 4,4 6,2
Then copied and applied weight of 2 on central control point.
Then copied again and applied weight of 0.5 on central control point.

Second spline is created with fit points: 6,2 8,4 10,2 with vertical start and end tangent.
Then copied and applied fit tolerance of 1 for fit points.

Third spline is created with fit points: 10,2 12,4 14,2 with horizontal start and end tangent.

Fourth and fifth spline are correctly drawn by QCAD.

Imported splines which typically represent lines, circles or arcs (explicit knot vector given) are sometimes wrongly identified as invalid by the OpenNURBS library.

First of all, thanks for this wonderful product !

My issue : when I modify (at file level) some parameters like the number of decimals in cotations, or the linethikness of a calc, these modifications are lost after saving and reopening the dxf. It comes back to the default values. It is not the case for the colors for instance.

At your disposal for other informations.

 469 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Solid entity properties Closed
100%
Task Description

Split from  FS#465  by Stefan:

After more testing, it seems that a solid triangle causes trouble, perhaps correlated to Z-coordinates and the property editor.

Attached you find a dxf example file with only 7 objects. Three noticable cases:
- Selecting all and change Selection in the property editor to “Solid” flips to “No Selection” although objects selected.
- Selecting all and change Selection in the property editor to “Line” shows “Length” and “Angle” in Geometry with “*VARIES*” values although only one line is selected.
- Selecting all but the solid object (6 objects selected now), everything works as expected, in particular Selection “Line” shows valid values (and Z-coordinate 0).

I hope this helps, please give instructions how to help if necessary.

Task Description

When creating a new file, selecting the e. g. line tool at first opens the linemenu and the snap tool menu as expected. After clicking on the back button twice (going back to the main menu) and selecting the e. g. circle menu, the snap tool menu is shown instead of the circle menu. Instead the circle menu is shown after pressing the back button again.

This only happens when clicking on the back button, but with any tool menu seleected. Pressing escape to go back does not show this problem.

0%
5 Task Description

Hi,

from time to time I need to place a circle etc precisely between two entity’s - what is a lot of construction work to get it correct. With the new “Info tool “Distance Entity to Entity” we have already the base for a new snap tool which could help to get rid of the time consuming construction process in cases like this. I would appreciate to get a new snap tool which is able to figure out the shortest distance between to entity’s and then will snap to the middle of it.

Pic 1: Given situation
Pic 2: Result after using this new snap tool

Would it make also cense to have a second new snap tool which works opposite for the furthermost distance between two entity’s?

0%
1 Task Description

As we all know - from time to time - it is a lot of work to prepare a part of a drawing for a hatch.
To get rid of one of the basic task (cutting lines along the desired hatch boundary) it would be nice to have an add-on - or what ever - what would cut ALL intersection in a drawing (or just on one layer, or just based on a selection etc.) with just a mouse click. Then it would be much faster and easier to do the selection for the hatch boundaries.
The user could decide to make it directly in his drawing or he like to duplicate the drawing to an extra layer where this function will be used ....

Clive mentioned on this:
Maybe a tool like this could be an additional ‘Snap’ selection option - select all snap intersections or select snap intersections within a boundary! then as you suggest ‘cut’ at the intersection points.

 1197 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow Small Polyline offset with 'round join' makes line segm ...Closed
100%
Task Description

When making an offset of a polyline with ‘round join’ enabled, and making a small offset of 0.0015 inches, no arcs are made, only coarsely interpolated line segments.
Further tests show that this is true until the offset is increased 0.040 inches; then the offset begins to create arcs.

The creation of arcs in a polyline offset with such small distances did work in QCAD 2.x.
