1100QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd drag dimension (snap) along dimension lineAssigned
0%
2 Task Description

In Autocad when making a dimension when left clicking to place the dimension there is the possibility to drag the dimension to either side of the dimension. This is also possible with Qcad dimension, but it losses the snapping and does not extend the dimension line out to the dimension text.

This is very useful when the two lines the needs a dimension are close together, or overlapping with another.

Attached is two images one for autocad and one for Qcad

1 Task Description

I find myself with reasonable regularity needing to change the background color between black and white. It would be much more efficient to have a toggle button on the ribbon to make this sort of instant (kind of like the “screen based line types” button works but make it for background color and just between black and white or let people define their dark and light themes and toggle the background between the two.

2283QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd a "Select Similar " commandAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

As a heavy mechanical drawings user, it would help a lot to have an option to select similar entities while working on QCAD.

In the flow of the work, sometimes I need to make some changes in all similar entities of the drawing.

The Select Similar works selecting all the same items with the same layer on the drawing.

Example:

I have a drawing for other company and I have to make a massive layer changing to my own layers.

I select a line and circles with a box selection, activate the Select Similar command and the QCAD instantly selects all lines and circles(no matter length) with that same layer. I can then change the layer of all of them instantly.

Or if I have a peace with a lot of circles, that aren’t in a block, in one time I want to change the layer or diameter of all circles in a certain part of the drawing.

I select the circle and activate the Select Similar command, the QCAD automatically selects all circles with the same layer and I deselect the circles that I don’t want with a box desselection and change the layers of them, or the diameter via properties.. and etc.

There is a workaround, that would be working with activating or deactivating layers, but the select similar would be a faster shortcut.

Thanks Andrew and team!

2282QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd a "Save As" command while editing blocks in placeAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

As a heavy mechanical drawings user, it would help a lot to have an option to exit a block saving as a new name and making it a new entity from that time ahead.

Example: if a have a lot of screws, one of then is behind another peace and need the to have some lines changed to hidden style lines, in the flow of the work is great if I edit that screw in place and when exiting have the option to save as a new block, to don’t mess with other entities of the same block that I don’t want to change. Yes, there is a workaround that is duplicate and rename the block prior to the editing, but a save as seems to work easier.

Thanks Andrew and team!

639QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAbility to load a file of keyboard shortcutsAssigned
0%
Task Description

It would be useful if a file of keyboard shortcuts to commands could be loaded.

Then a set of shortcuts identical/based on the Autocad keyboard shortcuts can be loaded, making it much easier for Autocad users to migrate to your product.

There does seem to be some future functionality planned here, with the shortcut ‘scheme’ selector in Program Preferences, but for the moment ‘Qcad’ is the only option available.

This strategy is used to great effect by Draftsight (but who trusts a big company like Dassault/Solidworks...)

1473QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow"Partial" circular/radial dimensionsAssigned
0%
Task Description

This is kind of related to FS#952, or rather a superset of it.

Consider the situation in the attached image. There is a perfectly good, albeit really shallow arc, making the radius somewhere in the vicinity of 600 millimeters, and the radial dimension being drawn accordingly.

Considering the other dimensions of the part, this is completely unusable, even to work with, really, but definitely so when it needs to be put on paper.

It would be nice to have some sort of “partial” (for my lack of a better word) radial/diametric dimensions where the dimension length can be adjusted.

Considering that this can be done with Leader, maybe a better (more generic) solution would be for Leader type dimensions to have options so they could automatically generate labels for various dimensions of a selected entity – sort of like having the Prefix/Tolerance/Scale options the other dimensions have, and have some additional fields there for selected entity and maybe dimension type (for example, radial or diametric for an arc-type entity).

2128QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow"Create Library Item" "Save As" dialogue doesn't rememb...Assigned
0%
2 Task Description

This is either a bug or a feature request, depending on perspective; my apologies if I’ve picked the wrong one. Additional discussion can be found here.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create an entity
2. Run “Create Library Item” [BT]
3. Select Reference Point

Expected outcome:
“Save As” dialogue opens in the directory that the previous library item was saved in

Actual outcome:
“Save As” dialogue opens in ( RSettings.getLaunchPath() + “/libraries” )

Additional Context:
The reason I’ve categorized this as a bug is because, relative to the behaviour of the main “Save As” dialogue (which does remember the last directory used) the behaviour of the “Create Library Item” “Save As” dialogue is unexpected.

Software versions:
QCAD 3.25.2 Pro
Windows 10 Pro

And QCAD doesn’t remember the last path choice ....

It would be nice if QCAD would point in first place to the Library Source or, at least, remember the last used path ... ;-)

1870QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Stretch tool / option to turn selection restriction on...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

since 3.19.2 the Stretch tool looks for any selection and follows the specification “Only stretch selected entities if there is a selection”.

That is a nice feature but it leads many times to confusing because I have to deselect a selection just because I need to use the stretch tool on something else on the fly. The same if I “forgot” a selection outside of my zoom which is still important for me. The stretch tool just won’t work without any message why not. My routine now is that I terminate every selection just before I use the stretch tool just not to be surprised by “why isn’t it working”?

It would be nice to have in the Stretch option bar a checkbox to turn the “only selection feature” on or off. QCAD should remember that setting.

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.

1877QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowPost Processor TutorialAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hallo Andrew,

I am still busy on the never ending G-code story. Doing so I wrote a small Post Processor Tutorial for all those nerds who wants to write their own. If you like it you might add it to QCAD. However, since English is not my native tongue I suggest checking it would be wise.

Meanwhile I have downloaded the source code, and could not find the CAM’s Drill-path-script. I am now using a negative Drill Cut Depth to set a Laser Dwell time, were as a field “Dwell Time (in seconds)” in the Drill-path would be more appropiate. Is this script open source available or is it part of ‘closed part’ of QCAD?

2213QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowAllow editing Spindle Speed separately for each Toolpat...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hello dear CAM developers!

I need to use the same tool at different spindle speed in a single machining file.
I would deeply appreciate if you could add a Spindle Speed edit field in the CAM Profile Toolpath edit window in order that each Toolpath can have its own Spindle Speed value (same as you did for Feed Rate and Plunge Rate)

FYI, the tool on my concern is a laser who’s power is driven by the Spindle Speed PWM signal.
I need to be able to do both engraving and cutting in a single file.
Alas! this laser tool is defined with a fix and unique number (99).
Therefore I cannot define different laser tools with different speeds.

Many thanks
Best regards.
