1977QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowCorresponding coordinate format Assigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

It would be less confusing to read messages in the command line protocol if it would use the same coordinate separators like the settings below Application Preferences / General / Coordinate Format.

This example shows the “Absolute Cartesian Coordinate” but of course all corresponding format settings should be used within messages.

Absolute Cartesian Coordinate: Setting = semicolon (;) but the message will use division (/).

1983QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowTrim All or Bulk Break outAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

This is a trim method I am missing in Qcad.

20 years ago it existed in CadKey.
You had a bunch of lines or segments.
You defined a (new) line or segment as cutter.
‘Trim All’.
You pointed at the side of the cutter entity to trim all intersecting at that side.

Pritty the same as in this topic:
https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=5221

Only in rare cases I can use Husky’s workaround as pro.
It all depends on what else is in the clipping rectangle that is needed to trim all intended.
If of no use all single crossing entities have to be chosen one by one.

CVH

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.

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

2031QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowOrdinate Dimensions don't act as expectedAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi Andrew

I wasn’t sure if this was a bug or feature request, when I’m drawing part sets that only change in lengths I dimension them
to save time then I stretch and save as whatever filename... I was surprised when Qcad reacted the way it did when stretching ordinate
dimensions on a part, the 1st thing I did was window select over the dimensions which didn’t work ( this is the typical way for
stretching ordinate dimensions in AutoCAD,IntelliCad,Draftsight etc )... anyway Husky and I had a fairly long debate and he told me
I had to select the object and only parts of the ordinate dimensions which when stretched leaves a bit of tidying up to do..
Please let me know if I’m going about this the wrong way.. do i really have to do multiple stretches and move all the jogged dimensions?

See Topic https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=6901&start=15 It started off with negative values for ordinate dimensions then turned into problems stretching ordinate dimensions..
I also posted dropbox links to quite a few videos..

Attached is a zip file containing some screenshots plus the original dxf file..

The 3dConnexion Space Navigator would be wonderful as a pan and zoom control. I find it extremely useful in SketchUp and when I switch from that to QCAD am always disappointed to find it doesn’t work.

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.

1788QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery LowNew snap: reference points of a block referencesAssigned

Task Description

I know this was reported and fixed before ...

https://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=843

... but it looks like we have the issue now back with some kind of variation.

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.

Edit: New Test drawing:

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:

Task Description

Building with the bundled version, 1.8.5, works fine.

When I try to build using the system version, which for Mageia Cauldron is 1.9.3, the build fails.

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kekePower/mmbl/master/qcad/2019/12/11/20%3A13%3A48/log.qcad

Here is the current spec file for version 3.23.0.4.
https://svnweb.mageia.org/packages/cauldron/qcad/current/SPECS/qcad.spec?revision=1465894&view=markup

It looks like qcad is incompatible with versions above 1.8.5.

Are there plans to port to the new version?

Thanks in advance.

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.
