snaps hang Qcad 3 RC1

Postby mark86 » Mon Nov 21, 2011 5:59 am

Hi,

I have a fairly complex block which with snap set to auto if the mouse approaches the block Qcad will hang for 30 seconds to a minute.

I have enabled individual snaps and it seems to hang on "snapintersectionmiddlemanual" and "snapintersection" but not others.

Also while trying individual snap types I noticed that the buttons seem to stick down, indicating that more than one snap type is selected, unsure if this is normal behaviour. Pushing the "auto" button does not make all the other snap button pop up.

Running Windows XP

Thanks for the report. We have identified and fixed this problem for the next release (RC2).

This is intended behavior for snap to "middle manual" and "intersection manual". These two snap tools require further input (two coordinates / two entities) and remain active (button pushed in) until the coordinates / entities have been chosen by the user.
