1999QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowViewport: Add additional properties for controlling dim...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

When working with multiple Viewports with different scale it could be very useful to have extra properties controlling how dimensions are rendered in the viewport:

1)
E.g an extra “Dimension Scale” under “Scale” in the Viewport selection’s ‘Specific Properties’ section, could allow having the same size when printed.
This Dimension Scale would be multiplied on top of the Scale value, but only for Dimensions rendering.

2)
Toggle button for hiding any dimensions in the Viewport. Maybe this should be controlled by being able to specify a Layer that should be hidden in this Viewport only, then I could select my Dimensions layer here.

The Viewport properties:

2014QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowFocus on Options Toolbar failsAssigned
0%
Task Description

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.

Offsetting 32 polys from ellipses fails.
Offsetting 16 polys can be completed with 2 selections for outer and 2 for inner.

For some reason the offset function halts premature.

2018QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLayer visibility setting per view/view-portAssigned
0%
2 Task Description

In a medium complex drawing it’s often too much details to have all layers in a drawing visible at once. Also, it is of great importance to be able to have a single model to avoid duplication of work and risk inconsistency.

So i would like to create a number of views where each view has selected layers visible (that makes sense for the purpose of the view) and then assign the views to different layout blocks (using view-ports) in paper-space to be able to setup printing of several views on the same page/PDF

This also means that view-ports would have to be aware of what view they are displaying (if any besides the standard-view).
This will then make it possible for printouts of different views with selected layers visible (different for each view and view-port) and still have only one model. Today this is not possible.

As it is today the only limited workaround is to set the layers you want to display, print/PDF of that viewport on separate page, and then change it for the next page, and so on. The big drawback is that you cannot have two different views/view-ports on the same page with different layers visible. Also, for large drawing it is painful to have to do a lot of manual setup for each rendering of the complete drawing.

2034QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowPaint Properties to include modifying linetype scales w...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Previous Feature Request #1285, dated 2015, incorporated in QCADPro 3.24. I regularly adjust linetype scales on hidden, centreline and phantom lines to achieve the best appearance on the drawing when printed. I note the Paint Properties feature copies all the attributes of the chosen line but does not copy the scale. I have to change the scale of each line, even after ‘painting’. This copying all Properties is something AutoCAD does. I know I could change the line to Hidden2 etc. and tick the ‘scale lines’ box in Drawing Properties but that is not always successful- copying properties is a quick and useful way of achieving the required result.

2056QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOption Duplicate layer (yy) inclusive all sub-layers.Assigned
0%
Task Description

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 ... :-(

2063QCAD (main)Performance IssueLowBad performance while zooming inside layout block with ...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Zooming in and out is lagging to the point of unusable. This is happening in a layout block with the cursor pointing inside geometry with hatches. When the cursor is pointing outside the geometry zooming works as expected.
The attached file has a very simplified testcase that shows this problem almost in the same way as a more complex drawing with multiple layers and hatches.

edit: I also attached the more complex drawing because it is a bit unclear to me where the lagging stops. Outside the viewport or outside the paper.

I just noticed the selection box has the same problem!

2091QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowToggle redrawing of hatches Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Because modifying hatches have lag issues I’d like to propose a toggle that turns of the redrawing/rendering of the hatch. Especially while modifying the hatch.

The hatches always have a boundary that can be worked with right? So when we move or stretch the hatch we can still see the boundary and its handles to perform all the actions.

This could be a new view mode that turns of the view of the interior/pattern of the hatch but leave the boundary of the hatch.
Or the draft mode can be extended to include simplified hatches while modifying.

1765QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery LowErrors with polyline offsetAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Win 7 32 bit QCAD 3.20.1

Ofsset of a base-line with arcs results in massive ammount of errors.
Most of them occur as a cluster of very tiny segments and are part of the offset. (zoom far in at the red circles)
Mostly they occur where the offsetted arcs should merely be trimmend pairwise.
Some occur as detached entities or as detached strings of entities very near the offset (strings not documented).
Spooks occur at opposite site when base-line is not closed.
360┬░ curls can occur with R = Offset.
Null-entities may occur (not documented, hard to find and not able to copy).

The base-line is checked and sound and has mixed tangentially or not tangentially connected arcs.
Offsetting the mother base-line of the base in the file has similar effect but not all and/or different ones.
Also encountered with offseting polys from fonts.
Used to define pocket paths for CNC.
Detected because the CNC driver will not accept Self-crossers, Null-entities or open ends depending on the settings.

Work arround is to explode and select small entities but this does not solves the issues.
1) Choosing the tolerance large enough will detect small segments that should stay.
2) Recombining will generate new ones at the place where the main segments remain crossed.
Cleaning up the paths is a daunting process with some thousand segments for several offsets.

I assume this has an infuence on the CAM part of QCAD too unless the offset method is different.

I know this was reported and fixed before ...

If I use the test drawing which I posted in 2013 ( FS#843 ) it works still as expected after it was fixed.

If I create a new block it won’t work in a new drawing nor in the old test drawing - no chance to snap to the Block Reference.

1900QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery LowRemote shares initially not accessible.Assigned
0%
Task Description

My data files are stored on network shares (synology) with a GB link. QCAD Pro is run in Admin mode.

While in my Windows browser all remote shares are accessible (Green), in the QCAD file open menu they are initially shown as not accessible (Red). By accessing a specific drawing file in a remote share, the share will open and turn green.

Same behavior using ‘Open recent’. Always the message is given that the requested file does not exist, and the file is wiped from the ‘Recent Open’ list. Only if the share is first accessed through ‘Open’ with a random file, it will turn and a ‘recent open’ file for that share will open.

Drag and Drop from a remote share will never work.

1923QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery LowFaulty rendering Polylines with Global/Local Widths and...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Win7pro 32bit Qcad 3.23.0

Andrew,
The Arc segments of Polylines with Global or any Local Width render faulty where Global Z or any of the arc’s local Z is not zero.

In the attached drawing setting the Global Z of the inner poly to 5,10,...

The setting of Z to not zero affects the radius of the projected arc and not the bulging of the poly.
It also affects the projected widths of the line inversely, but not by changing the widths properties.

Pritty rare combination! True.
Qcad is 2D native! True.

Flatten will resolve this.

It is not a purely visual rendering fault, the poly will explode as such.

Maybe similar flaw as with uneven scaling blocks with arcs.

1974QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery LowFile > Print Preview: Cannot move paper in new drawingUnconfirmed
0%
Task Description

Yesterday I set up a Windows 64 bit install of QCAD Pro which shows the same bug I have been seeing for a while in the Community linux git repo.

Create a new drawing and then go to “Print preview”. Enable “Move paper postion”, the cursor changes to the hand icon, but the paper position is unable to be moved. Only by saving the drawing, exiting the program, restarting and reopening the drawing, will the “Move paper postion” function correctly.

Affected versions tested:

Windows 64bit installer download, as of yesterday.
Linux 64bit build from git, about 20minutes ago.

For what it’s worth, this bug is not present in this previous git checkout:

2021QCAD (main)Performance IssueVery LowCannot work with big dwg filesAssigned
0%
Task Description

Openning a big file or doing any action in it, takes minutes to load.
Even dragging the scrollbar slightly left or right, takes mintues to redraw the canvas again, which makes QCAD un-usable for professional use.
Is there a way to make QCAD usable, after loading completed:
- Like suppressing edit until user says so,
- or taking snapshots of rendered canvases to another file and use it, as windows uses thumb.db ( for negative latency :P )

PS: I wish I could help a bit, but my hand are tied. I am just a java freak, I am opt to any idea of porting it to java, if she is still alive.

0%
Task Description

QCAD 3.24.2 / macOS x86_64 10.14.6

Starting with empty doc:
1. Draw any object (e.g. a rectangle) on layer 0.
2. Create new layer (”1”) with color, say yellow.
3. Select new layer
4. Select new object
5. Modify → Move / Copy
6. Click reference point
7. Click target point same as reference point
8. In “Move / Copy Options” dialog, select “Delete Original” and check “Use current layer and attributes.” Click OK.

The moved object stays on the layer it was previously on. Using “Move / Copy” as a quick way to move a selection between layers is not useful even though it appears to be the recommended way in a Google search.

Note: if “Keep Original” is selected instead, the copied object is placed on the current layer and the original object remains on its layer, as expected.

Note: if the target point is different from the reference point, the moved object is placed on the current layer as expected.

There are other workarounds too, cut / paste with “To current layer” checked seems to work, as does chaging the layer in the Properties Editor.
