100%

Please can you provided a worked example for scripting (I can’t find anything similar in the Help/Book)?

I have a 2D drawing that has a segmented circle that is divided into 12/16/20 segments etc.

I want to show this in a side 2D view e.g. there are 6/8/10 segments visible to fill in a rectangle.

I can manually calculate the distance to draw vertical “fill” lines by calculating the angle of the end of each segment. With the option to rotate the position of the lines by half/third of a segment.

A simple example with only 2 segments visible, it’s 0, 50% and 100%.
With 4 segments, it’s tan(22.5), tan(45), -tan(45) and 90 degrees that’s approximately 41%, 50%, 59% and 100%.

So the task, is to receive the coordinates of the area e.g. a rectangle, divide the rectangle into unequal smaller rectangles.

I imagine that a 3D program can do this, but I want to do something similar. Perhaps this is more easily applied - I’m new to CAD and QCAD.

1864 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow File > Print Current View: multiple pages printed Closed
100%

Case: My last “Print preview” setting was “Multiple Pages” = 4
QCAD will remember this setting until I change it.

If I then - maybe days later - start a “Print current view” out of my drawing then QCAD will show me the current view on ONE page. Exactly what I expected. If I start the print QCAD will print on FOUR pages regarding to the last “Print preview” setting. Not what I was looking for ....

Now knowing what will happen I launch “Print current view”, see my current view on ONE page, launch the “Drawing preferences”, see that FOUR is the number for pages, doesn’t change anything and cancel the dialog. NOW I can see that FOUR pages are used for the current view print.

That is confusing and it would be nice to have somehow more control over this behavior.

1862 ECMAScriptBug ReportLow (Groups of) Radio Button does not remember its state. Closed

Also, the way the state of radioButtons is saved on Qcad3.conf is rather confusing.

Exemple :
Two radioButtons _cr_i and _cr_x are in the same QWidget.
- check _cr_i
- validate the form with OK
- reopen the form, check _cr_x
- validate the form with OK

```[_myPlenum2]
...
_cr_i=_cr_i
_cr_x=_cr_x
...
```

On next form run, even if I select _cr_i, the radiobutton QWidget always takes the value of _cr_x.

I received an ACAD file for a cinema we’re working on and the handicapped toilets were rotated 180-degrees referenced to everything (so the toilet appears to be in the hallway rather than the restroom. The handicapped toilet is part of a block with the handrails and those are in their proper place, just the toilet is rotated.

I have verified the problem on both MAC and PC versions.

The drawing appears correct in AutoCAD as well as TrueView and other programs that can read AutoCAD (that I’ve checked). This problem seems to be QCAD specific.

1857 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Layer List: current layer not highlighted after collaps ...Closed
100%

Hi. This is a layers confusion..

I have layers:

0
v Layer 1
Layer 1a
v Layer 2
Layer 2a

I select (highlight) “Layer 1a” add an entity on “Layer 1a”
I select (highlight) “Layer 2a” add an entity on “Layer 2a”

I then collapse “Layer 2” and then collapse “Layer1” - in that order:

0
> Layer 1
> Layer 2

No layers shown highlighted.

I immediately add a 3rd entity.

I then open “Layer 2” and see that “Layer 2a” is still highlighted.

I then hide “Layer 1”

That third entity that I added is now hidden (as is the first entity that I added in “Layer 1a”) and properties show it is part of “Layer 1”, not “Layer 2a”. Seems like the third entity is added to the top layer that was last collapsed.

Even happens if I collapse “Layer 2” and then immediately expand it. Add an entity and that entity is placed in “Layer 2” even though “Layer 2a” is still highlighted.

I hope this makes sense. Not a huge issue, just a strange UI peculiarity.

100%

In a the modelspace I have a block reference of a block(parent), which includes block references (with attributes) of another blocks(child). Than I select this parent block reference and choose Explode. The result is, that the child block references have visible attributes, but they are not connected to the block reference anymore (I can not see them in property editor when the child block is selected). Than when I choose synchronize attributes, new attributes with default values will appear.
I am not sure it his is a bug or expected behavior of the Explode feature.

If it is not a bug, I would like to have new Extract feature, which would copy the content of the selected block reference and immediately insert it exactly to the same place (attributes would be still connected to child references) Extracted block reference would be than removed. Optionally, it could delete the block definition if it is not used anymore in the drawing (but there is already Block Purge feature which will do this).

6) Close and reopen the file

RESULT: Attributes of block references included in the original block are missing in the copied block.
Immediately after insertion of the copied block I can see in the property editor, that block reference attributes are not “conected” to the block reference, but they are still visible. They disappear when the file is reopen.

Alternative way I use to copy this kind of blocks without error: Open block I want to copy, Select all entities, reference copy of them, paste to modelspace, select them in modelspace and choose create block.

Hi Andrew,

Font Standard. Selected as ‘single line’ font for engraving with mill or laser.

While CAM Exporting as G-code Laser (Offset) MM, or as Linux CNC, Exporting gets trapped in a loop.

In Font Standard the glyph’s ? & \$ @ s S Q and 2 contains unwanted Z-movements. It seems these glyphs entities are not alligned properly; endpoint last line does not meet startpoint next line; why else the Z-movements?

Could this misallignment also traps Exporting?

You can fix the missing G01 by replacing your file postprocessors/GCodeLaserOffsetMM.js with the attached updated file.

Since it was not attached, that makes two of us.

Multi selection of ‘newer’ entities from the list above will not if an ‘older’ arc is part of the selection.
Deselecting de ‘older’ arcs will reveal the startpoints up to the ‘oldest’ arc.

In the file provided entities where drew in order from left to right.
Select all and start deseleting arcs from the left.

The behaviour is affected by changing the draw order property and a save/close/open.
In the second file the rightmost arc was set to draw order 7, the same as the 4th was.
After save/close/open it is renumbered to 8 and the behaviour is different as in the firts file.
