Hi Andrew,

Still working with and on CAM HPGL for the HP7580 pen plotter.

I have added a penplotter test drawing, that might be used for testing en callibrating plotter and pens. You may add it to the Examples-directory.

QCAD has a lot of trouble creating toolpaths and exports. Much too often it shuts itself down, or gets stalled. Why? I am not sure.

 1855 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow I cannot print Closed

Task Description

when printing only a white page is generated. Also when pdf generation, a corrupted file is generated. I enclose my dwg file.

It sucks...

 1856 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow SVG import: add support for rotate transformations with ...Closed
100%
Task Description

QCAD seems either to mishandle or ignore svg group transformations altogether.

Importing the attached file into QCAD renders the largest polygon (polygon18) to be rotated and misplaced. This is shown in actual.png. The expected result (original Inkscape renedering) is shown in expected.png.

Looking at the code of the original drawing it can be observed there is a transformation applied to the group which polygon18 is in:

 <g
   style="stroke-width:0.35433099;stroke-miterlimit:4;stroke-dasharray:none"
   id="g20"
   transform="rotate(-90,316.66796,298.95141)" >
   <path
      inkscape:connector-curvature="0"
      id="polygon18"
      d="..." />

Removing the ‘transform’ attribute produces virtually identical (erroneous) rendering in Inkscape as well.

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

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.

Best regards
Hugh

100%
Task Description

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.

 1862 ECMAScriptBug ReportLow (Groups of) Radio Button does not remember its state. Closed
100%
Task Description

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

the config file reads

[_myPlenum2]
VisibleInMenu=true
...
_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.

 540 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low "pa" ("parallel") keycode triggers wrong action Closed
100%
Task Description

In the latest QCAD Community Edition source code (2.0.5.0-1-community), the wrong action is triggered for the “pa” keycode. Specifically, it triggers the basic draw line command. Here is the relevant code from qcadcmd/src/rs_commands.cpp, in RS_Commands::keycodeToAction:

  } else if (c==tr("li", "line")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;
  } else if (c==tr("pa", "parallel")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;

I believe this should instead be:

  } else if (c==tr("li", "line")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;
  } else if (c==tr("pa", "parallel")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLineParallel;

 656 QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery Low Data should not be in programs directory Closed
100%
Task Description

QCAD2 offered the user to specify in the program settings where these directories should be/go, and took the first one in each list as default; QCAD3 only offers to enter auxiliary library and template directories and has no provisions for defaults.

All associated data (scipts, templates, libraries, patterns, fonts) is stored under the program directory, exactly where it should not be. Windows 7 and higher default prevent modifying the programs directory by redirecting the writes.
An extra user-input during the Windows install process would be in order.

QCAD3 should offer the user to specify any and all data directories involved (including the auto save), and make it possible to specify a default for each.
This list could be initialised with the installation defaults, or default to the installation directories when empty.
