2338QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLowShow non-QCAD custom XDATA optionallyAssignedAnđa Task Description

QCAD (before version 3.27?) used to show some custom XDATA, e.g. tag 1000, even for application names that are not “QCAD”, which for me was useful, so it’s somewhat of a regression. (I think it was broken when selecting multiple items, maybe that’s why it was removed.)

I suggest to bring that feature back, but maybe show it only when a single element is selected if that’s easier.

(As a workaround/hack I guess it would be possible to rewrite the required information as QCAD compatible XDATA externally I guess.)

2337QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDistance information should be available in 2D and 3DAssignedAnđa Task Description

As per, I suggest to extend the distance information tools:

* show Delta Z (at least when any of the elements has Z information)
* allow switching between 2D and 3D distance
* maybe allow to show both
* maybe change the text to distinguish between them (”Distance” → “Distance 2D/3D”)

2272QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSupport unit "US survey foot"AssignedAnđa Task Description

In the US, it is (unfortunately) still common to use US survey foot. It seems at least some DXF applications/libraries support this unit as a $INSUNITS value, some references:

There are two issues regarding this with QCAD:

  1. If you open a document with $INSUNITS being 21, it’s reset to 0 (unitless/unspecified) when saved again, even when not changing anything.
  2. It is not possible to select these units in the GUI.

I don’t know about standardization of these values, but my hope is that it’s at least possible to preserve the unit in an existing drawing. Given that this unit is supposed to be obsolete in some years, it might seem less important, but due to this transition, it might get even more important to be able to distinguish between units. Thanks!
