564QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSettings organisation in levelAssigned
0%
Task Description

As an old professional “documentation writer and user inteface designer” but IMHO, I’m not convinced that the “Application preferences” are correctly organised for ease of understanding and using them.
These settings are organised in 2 levels. Some of the first levels have their own settings (e.g. “Graphics view”) while most others don’t (e.g. “Load/save”). May I humbly ;-) suggest some consistency rules :
- no sub-level if there is only one subject
- no items on main level if there are already 1 or more sub-level(s).
For instance :
- sub-level “Default Dimension settings” under “Dimension” is the only sub-level : then move these items under main level “Dimension” and suppress the sub-level ;
- the items under “Graphics view” main level (with several sub-levels)could be in a sub-level named “General” ;
Actually, “Graphics view” main level is the only one which has both its own items and sub-levels ;-))) ?

1549QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSeparate Coordinate Display from Drawing DimensionsAssigned
0%
Task Description

Source:
https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=4752

According to the changelog for version 3.9.3 the info tools and coordinate display are tied to the current drawing dimensions. For much of my use I prefer to have the dimensions format different. The main reason is that my customers want to see the format in fractions, but when I am drawing I’d rather see the decimal format to make sure what I am drawing is accurate. So I’d really be interested in seeing a separate full configuration of the display and info coordinates.

Task Description

My request is that all selected entities stay selected after isometric projection, this would be useful for example if you need to modify the projection further after placing!
Maybe an extra button could be added in the ISO options?

2 Task Description

Now - after enjoying the great new “Scale” option for Dimensioning I like to ask for the same scale option for the “Info tools”.
It would be really nice to have more flexibility (without a pocket-calculator) in reading and displaying the Info tool results.

855QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowScale dimension on/off option ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

QCAD 3.1.5 - has a new “Dimensioning Scale adjustment option” (Property editor/Linear Factor). NICE!!! :-)

What means - we are now able to change the dimension scale for existing dims!

My Feature request refers to new dimensions and I think it would be perfect to have a “Scale Factor - On/Off Option” for all Dim Tools.

That would bring us in the position to copy / scale a part of our drawing for a detail view and we could just use us usual the dimensioning tools (with a scale factor) for the dimensioning task ....

Task Description

Hatched block loses hatching when using isometric projection tool:
See -http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=32&p=7063#p7063

When manipulating a saved hatched block with the isometric tool it loses the hatching unless the block is exploded.

Is this normal behaviour here? or a bug?

355QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRemember function for dimension OptionAssigned
0%
Task Description

I think it would be nice to have more flexibility for Prefix etc. option (not only the drop down with a given choice) and a remember function for all those fields like postfix and tolerance.

Why Remember Function:
If I use a postfix like <>” in the postfix field I’m only able to use it for this particular dimension type at this time. If I change the type (from Horizontal to vertical or what ever) I have always to repeat my postfix. The same with tolerances.

1027QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRectangle with a 3 point determination ...Assigned
0%
2 Task Description

Many times I’m faced with the situation that I have to use a rectangle related to other entities. Dimensions/Angle = unknown.

We have in QCAD a rectangle tool with a two point diagonal determination but this is limited to two points and it will only work in a horizontal and vertical direction.

My feature request is based on the idea to draw a rectangle with 3 points - regardless the angle.

1. First point: start

2. second point: determination of the first side (width?) and it will also provide the angle for the rectangle

3. third point: determination second side (height?)

I’m asking for an additional new tool? No - just as an option to the existing rectangle tool ...

It would be nice to be able to choose by myself between a Start and End Reference point like the vert./horiz. Line options.

1369QCAD/CAMBug ReportVery Lowqcad-bin is trying to access non-existent /home/andrewAssigned
0%
Task Description

I experience long start delays. I’ve trace the problem to the fact that I have autofs automounting my home directories. However, an strace of qcad-bin shows the following:

execve("/opt/ribbonsoft/qcad/qcad-3.12.6/qcad-bin", ["/opt/ribbonsoft/qcad/qcad-3.12.6"...], [/* 87 vars */]) = 0

stat("/home/andrew/local/qt/lib", 0x7fff4722f250) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

Since there is no “andrew” user here, I have to wait for automount to timeout which takes about 2m and is rather annoying.

1104QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowPrinting: Add support for page rangeAssigned
0%
Task Description

When printing from the preview mode a standard Windows popup shows, letting me select the printer, number of copies and a page range. Unfortunately QCAD (or Windows) ignores the page range - it always prints all pages. So right now I always have to copy the parts I want to print, page them into a separate document and print that instead - even though I got all my stuff nicely lined up for printing on multiple pages.

Would be nice, if in print preview QCAD rulers would switch to paper dimensions. Chat here http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=89&t=3793

After all, print preview is not just the drawing on white, isn’t it? Everything else should stay in drawing units. Just the rulers, maybe a preference?

1172QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowPrint Preview - Add 'Place Paper Option' toolAssigned

Task Description

Often in print preview I need to move the paper around and position it with the ‘Move Paper Position’ tool, which is useful, but what would be an additional extra useful option would be a ‘Place Paper Here’ tool.

Then I could simply use this tool first and then use the ‘Move Paper Position’ tool afterwards to fine tune things!

If you look at the attached image you will see that in this students file they have got their drawing spread out all over the place:(

1577QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowPostfix for DIM / Remember last DIM Label ...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi,

unfortunately I need to use from time to time different Units in a drawing. It works nice with the Scale possibility but to keep my drawing readable I need to label then the DIM accordingly. Sadly I don’t have a Postfix option so I work with a workaround what means I use <>”, or <>’ and <>mm in the Prefix field. If I then terminate the DIM tool and start it again I will loose my settings except the Scale Factor.

May I ask for an additional Postfix option or/and a remember functionality of those fields?

It would be nice and helpful if we had the possibility to control the order of Attributes - shown in the property editor.

770QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowPolyline tool to delete segments between two nodes, lea...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

I guess this is a case of wording and wrong expectations.

The polyline tool “Delete Segments between two nodes” removes nodes, but not segments as the title and the icon suggests.

I propose to rename it to “Delete Nodes between two nodes”.

A tool which actually removes line segments from a polyline, leaving gaps, could indeed be useful to some users.

I think of a straight polyline with several segments. Then I remove some segments. I end up with a polyline with “holes” in it. Now I could stretch that polyline and all the remaining segments and holes stretch proportionally. Could be handy some times.
