 2280 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dimension arrows not filled ClosedHusky Task Description

Version QCAD / Windows x86_64

Existing drawing:

1. e.g. flange.dxf loads with no fills (solid hatch) for arrows,
2. New dimension are also without arrow fills.
3. This existing drawing has Text above line! Setting Drawing Preferences / Dim to “Horizontal text labels” will alter Text to be Horizontal BUT also open a gap for the text which is a separate setting (Text above dimension Line). Undo doesn’t works on this properly - used multiple times will even change the dim color which wasn’t changed in this operation.

New drawing:

1. Same test scenario - same issue.
2. Dim settings = Horizontal text Labels ticked, Text above dimension Line ticked produces a dim horizontal orientated with a gap instead to put the text above the line

 2253 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Print Preview incorrect page size ClosedHusky Task Description

In Print Preview the movable display of the printing area (white) is displayed to small which makes a multi page arrangement very difficult. You want not notice the wrong size when you print only one page but 10 pages vertical in a row will show the effect clearly. I checked a metric (mm) and an imperial (inch) unit. The deviation in Imperial is clearer than in Metric.

Feature request? Bug? I don’t know ... ;-)

NumBlock Enter key is not accepted by “Coordinate” tool to confirm the settings in the option bar (green Arrow icon). Enter key on main keyboard works.

Very confusing when you are used to type in all numbers with the NumBlock (what is very fast) but to confirm you have to use the “far away” Enter on the Main keyboard ... ;-)

2233QCAD BugtrackerQCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowMore selection options to select sheets for nestingAssignedHusky Task Description

I’m often in the situation that I have to select for nesting 50+ sheets. Currently is only a Shift + left mouse click selection possible. It would be nice if QCAD/CAM could get for the nesting / sheet selection additional a mouse rectangle area selection.

 2232 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD/CAMBug ReportLow Nesting fails when parts fit plus minus null on sheets ClosedHusky Task Description

Just lost a detailed report (token?)- now a short version!

Nesting fails when parts fit plus minus null on sheets. My parts should fit regarding to the measurements on a sheet multiple times. The nesting tool can’t find a solution.

Options are:
Quantity multiplier: 0
Rotation: 4
Sheet margin: 0
Margin: 0
Tolerance: 0

If I modify the parts and make them slightly smaller then a nesting is done as expected. Did I miss something?

When I modify partly a DIM with “Stretch” or changing one Extension line position with drag and drop the Value text is updated which is nice working. Unfortunately the previous value stays in place and is overwritten by the actual value. I think for a good readability the previous value should disappear in the moment when the new value is presented.

The square symbol offered as symbol in DIM label is the only symbol which doesn’t adopt the layer color.

If I’ve to duplicate a layer with a bunch of sub-layer it’s a kind of a Sisyphus task to get it done.
Currently I have to duplicate each single layer. Then in an additional step I’ve to address each child layer to the proper parent layer.

Current lack:
Marked parent layer with all sub-layer / Duplicate Layer / only ONE layer will be duplicated.

With other words: If I have to duplicate a layer with 5 sub-layer it requires 11 steps to get a copy of that tree ... :-(

 2025 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD/CAMBug ReportLow Set Nesting Quantity shows wrong quantity ClosedHusky Task Description

If I set “Set Nesting Quantity” to e.g. 5 it will remember this number within the session.
If I need to check which number I’ve used last time there is no way to find the actual used value - it will show me always 1.
If I restart QCAD/CAM the value is completely lost and the nesting tool tries to fit in as much as possible into the sheet - regardless that the quantity number still shows one.

It would be nice to have a remember function even after restarting QCAD/CAM and have some kind of possibility to see the last used value.

Scenario: e.g. Tools Move/Copy and Rotate switched to “use without dialog.

Launch within a drawing Move/Copy, use the Keyboard keys CTRL + Space to focus on the Option Bar - the field for Numbers is Highlighted and I can change it. Further navigation with keys on the keyboard depends on remembered option (copy yes/no etc what make a navigation possible or not. It looks like the navigation with the Arrow keys is focused on the canvas and sooner or later the courser will jump to the Command Line or Property editor. Same behavior with the Rotation tool.

If I insert a bitmap the relative zero point (RZ) isn’t set at all. It will be set at the mouse position in the moment when I terminate the tool.

This leads among other things that I can’t use the Alt key for ortho mode or other tools for restrictions.
