355QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRemember function for dimension OptionAssigned
Task Description

I think it would be nice to have more flexibility for Prefix etc. option (not only the drop down with a given choice) and a remember function for all those fields like postfix and tolerance.

Why Remember Function:
If I use a postfix like <>” in the postfix field I’m only able to use it for this particular dimension type at this time. If I change the type (from Horizontal to vertical or what ever) I have always to repeat my postfix. The same with tolerances.

316QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowBlocks list and selected blockAssigned
1 Task Description

Wouldn’t it be nice, if selecting a block in model view would somehow highlight (just like clicking a block in the list does) the selected block in the “Block List” window?

(Feature request sounds a little harsh, enhancement proposal would seem more apt.)

293QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowmulti-select for blocksAssigned
Task Description

It would be nice if one could select multiple blocks in the block list at once (holding ctrl or ctrl+shift). Main purpose would be to delete them if they are not needed anymore. If possible, the same applies to layers.

Task Description

208QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSVG export: support custom line weightsAssigned
Task Description

Find way to support custom line weights for SVG export. See also forum thread: http://www.ribbonsoft.com/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=1594

Task Description

QGroupBox widgets with <property name=”checkable”> are not saved in Qcad3.conf

1506dxflibFeature RequestLowwriteVPort parametersAssigned
Task Description

Add parameters to the function DL_Dxf::writeVPort.
This way users will be able to specify the desired viewport.

Is the github the official repository? Are pull requests sent there accepted?

1203dxflibBug ReportLowImages not saved (dxflib)Assigned
Task Description

I am doing a bit of landscaping and using a (big) ortophoto as one of my layers in order to sanity-check on the ground measurements.

The layer contains a point and the image and nothing else.

The image is a 8MB file: “PNG image data, 4200 x 2980, 8-bit/color RGB, non-interlaced” and it is scaled to 210 coordinate units (meter) horizontally in the drawing.

With approx 50% probability the image disappears during Save, as see for instance in this diff of the DXF file:

The point in the same layer does not similarly disappear, the bug only seems to affect images.

I have seen this bug from version to git as of yesterday (63e06c778926a803bdfbffdf27b8c24d41511072).

I have not been able to correlate the bug with anything.

Looking closer at the DXF file (attached), there seems to be some residuce of attempts to insert images in protected/invisible layers, so this may be some kind of refcounting issue.

(Any chance of getting FreeBSD into the “Operating System” field ?)

1542dwg2svgFeature RequestLowdwg2svg: add switch to show only given layer(s)Assigned
Task Description

Implement a command line switch to only show a list of given layers for dwg2* command line tools.

1824dwg2pdfFeature RequestLowdwg2pdf does not obey frozen layers in paper-space view...Assigned
Task Description

We currently have a paper-space using two viewports with different layers from the model-space frozen. Unfortunately in the pdf output the layers which are frozen show up.
dwg2pdf should obey the specific frozen layer for each viewport

Task Description

When trying to plot a dwg or a dxf to pdf where the viewport is orientated to a different angle than north up
the data in the view port is plotted north up.
see attached DWG and pdf for clarification.

1700dwg2pdfFeature RequestLowdwg2pdf: output multiple layoutsAssigned
Task Description

Add support to specify multiple blocks (layouts) to output (one per page).

1021dwg2pdfFeature RequestLowdwg2pdf: switch to set block to exportAssigned
1 Task Description

Add a command line switch to dwg2pdf to export a given block instead of “*Model_Space”.

Task Description

It would be nice if QCAD spit some kind of warning message when trying to render a layer with a name that doesn’t exist (and perhaps render nothing), rather than silently rendering an empty image. :D

1888dwg2bmpFeature RequestLowAdd support to disable hatch rendering on "dwg2bmp"Assigned
1 Task Description


A friendly request to add an option to disable hatch rendering on “dwg2bmp” conversions.

Depending on the nature of the conversion and the density of the hatch, this may render unintelligible images (see attachments). The option could look like “-t, -nohatch” to indicate hatches should be hidden before rendering. This could potentially become an option too for “dwg2svg” or “dwg2pdf.”

Amazing product, thank you so much!

1887dwg2bmpFeature RequestLowAdd "-max-lineweight" option for dwg2bmpAssigned
2 Task Description

Hi there,

A friendly request to add the option to set a maximum lineweight for raster conversions via dwg2bmp.

Depending on the LW configuration of the CAD file, rasterization operations sometimes yield terrible results (see attachment). This would also mirror the similar “-min-lineweight” options available on “dwg2svg” and “dwg2pdf” (although not on “dwg2bmp”).

2193Command line toolsBug ReportVery Lowdwg2csv retains the last encountered custom propertiesAssigned
Task Description

QCAD Professional
Win installer 32 bit
Version: (
Internet: QCAD.org
Build Date: Feb 12 2021
Revision: cad2d36
Qt Version: 5.13.2
Architecture: i386
Compiler: Unknown

While enhancing DrawFromCSV: Forum Link.
I had a peek at the new command line tool: dwg2csv

I would never come up with 115 columns.
That wouldn’t be efficient to generate entities from.
Although this way it is very complete and one could use specific lists to filter.
One downside is that the ‘-list’ switch return is far too vast for the windows command line.

Remarked that:
Only the first alphabetically custom property is listed under:
QCAD:Line & QCAD:Reference (columns 114-115).
And that the last encountered is persistent for all entities that follows.

Maybe this originates from a multiple entity selection ...
... what also retains the last encountered custom properties in the property editor.
Should I add a seperate task for that?

Also had an exception thrown:
Debug: dropped global XDATA (no res buf): “ViewportCenter”.
Discarted that as this very basic test drawing hasn’t even a Viewport.


Added: Snippet from DrawFromCSV code (merely a test case)


The two points, and only those two points, are casted with custom properties
