1888dwg2bmpFeature RequestLowAdd support to disable hatch rendering on "dwg2bmp"Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi!

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!

1890QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowPossibility to address an QCAD extern font folderAssigned
0%
Task Description

Like the Library Browser it would be nice to be able to define a extern font source folder. Especially now after we are able to create our own cxf fonts with QCAD. :-)

The reason is the same why we have it already for the library - without it we have to copy our individual fonts manually every time after a QCAD update to use them uninterrupted for existing and new drawings.

Hallo Andrew,

Still busy on the never ending G-code story. Urgently needed the very handy G-code Block Toolpath. This ‘toolpath’ also solves a lot of “editing requests”.

1903QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSaving layer settings, e.g. visibility status, associat...Assigned
0%
Task Description

In a medium complex drawing it may be too much details to have all layers in a drawing visible at once.

Instead a number of views would be created that saves not only zoom level and position but also what layers are visible and not (as appropriate for the purpose of that particular view). This is very cumbersome (to the extent it is not really realistic) to achieve today and requires a lot of duplication of both model and layers.

The advantage of adding this is the ability to have only one model (with multiple views) and avoid duplication of work and the risk of inconsistency inherent with many copies of the model.

As a further (and natural extension to this) would be the ability to used this functionality with view-ports to be able to create (possibly many) paper-spaces from a single model. This would however require view-ports to be aware of what view they are a window into. A single change in the model would then propagate to all defined view-ports and paper-spaces.

Hallo Andrew

It would be more than conveniant, defining the drilling locations of the drill toolpath, by selecting a circle’s center point.

1917QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAutomatic labels with static information of the drawingAssigned
0%
Task Description

I would like static information of the drawing (like scale, creation-date, modified-date, revision etc) to be available as automatic labels to be placed in the drawing (with selectable style, font etc)

This would greatly simplify the creatin of title sections in the drawing and making sure it is consistent with the actual drawing and not requiring manual “synchronization”.

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

1926QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNo negative coordinate values ? (DO command)Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Just starting with QCAD, for some hours now - really excellent user interface (compared to other low budget CADs, like DCAD, or BeckerCAD...) !

Surprisingly, point coordinates - entered via the command line, and shown with correct positions on the drawing- are not displayed correctly with the ‘dimordinate’ (DO) command.
There are no negative values, even when the center point (0;0) is right in the middle of the drawing, so points left and below should have !

1928QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOptionnally 'Auto clean up' after generation of NaN / N...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Some functions / methods can generate some sort off entity or part with NaN / Null / Null-lenght ... props.
Some explicitly don’t and test their actions with isNull().

As these serve a purpose in some processes, trails of them can be part of the results.
For some users Null / Null-lenght are meaningfull, for other users these produce errors down the line.
In a few cases its a desirable feature eg. controlpoint spline.
(Allthough there are no Null props involved with equal successively controlpoints)

Many problem post on the forum are related to Null - Zero and so on.

In some cases it can’t be undone by re-editing the drawing.
https://qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1925

If it can’t be undone by Undo/Redo it is a bug.
https://qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1757

In some cases there is a difference noticed after file save-close-open.

1930QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOption disable "Auto Zoom on load" for saved "Layout Vi...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

my setting for “Auto Zoom on load” is checked to on. That works perfect for me for most of my drawings.

But if I save a drawing with Layout Viewports then I have to adjust every Viewport again after loading.

Would it be possible to have an option below Application Preferences / Graphics View / Appearance / Auto Zoom on load / ON which excludes drawings saved with Layout Viewports?

1934QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDiametric text - overlaidAssigned
0%
Task Description

Diametric text is always placed above a horizontal measurement.

I often want to indicate both the inside and outside diameter of an object e.g. a wheel using diametric text. The text is overlaid and illegible.

To avoid text overlapping, I use Horizontal Aligned because I can control the position of the text to avoid illegible text.

A better method would be to alternate the placement of diametric text (alternatively) above and below a measurement so that in the majority of cases an overlap would be avoided.

Similarly for a vertical measurement, the text is overlaid and illegible.

When the angle is almost vertical, the angle controls the side the text appears however it also reverses the direction of the text (which is logical but not attractive).

Kind regards
Simon

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 (/).

1323QCAD (main)SuggestionLowImprove command line support in QCADAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

As a typical command line draftsman (still using acad10 for dos, since microsoft doesn’t supoort Win NT anymore),
I noticed a severe lack on command line acces in QCAD.

For example I find the icon and pixel selecting methods within qcad very confusing and rude.

With the normal cad Select command I can select exactly what en how I want it.

I intend not to be rude, but I find my drawing screen littered all over with all kind of very specialist menu’s,
tools and options. Sorry, I just want to make a drawing at the natural intuitive way, as with a pencil.
So I use command line Commands, such as Move, Copy, Change, Select, a.s.o.
For a ‘Command scripting’ user (-batching is a different tool!-),
it seems to me logical these basic commands should be accessable.

1368QCAD (main)SuggestionLowContext Menu - suggestionsAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

I love using the context menu, speeding up my workflow indeed.

I would like to suggest that we have the added option to show only icons if desired and also that maybe an option to save and show commonly used tools!

Maybe the context menu could be configurable to show two columns, one for the normal last used tools and the othjer one for the user saved tools?

What do you think?

1469QCAD (main)SuggestionLowCartouche automatiqueAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Would not it be possible to create a kind of template for printing?
We draw our room without cartridge. The cartridge will automatically appear when printed. The scaling could be automatic so that it goes in the A4 and therefore also will post the scale automatically. The name of the play could be the file name, date last saved after it the rest of the information that would be to add somehow (material index, designer, ...).

Original suggestion:

Bonjour,

Ne serait il pas possible de créer une sorte de template lors de l’impression ?
On dessine notre pièce sans cartouche. Le cartouche s’affiche automatiquement lors de son impression. La mise à l’échelle pourrais être automatique pour que ca rentre dans le A4 et donc l’échelle s’afficherai aussi en automatique. Le nom de la pièce pourrais être le nom du fichier, la date du dernier enregistrement après c’est le reste des infos qui serait à ajouter je ne sais comment (matière, indice, dessinateur, ...).

1789QCAD (main)SuggestionLowApplication Preferences / General / Performance :0Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi Andrew,

we know that you need to have always software performance in your mind to decide which features / tools can / should be implemented and on which way.

I really appreciate your effort to find the best middle way between software features and performance but I think also it’s a tough call to appraise worldwide the overall customer equipment to make the software workable to the best for everybody. That isn’t possible without compromise.

Maybe it would make sense to think about a new dialog in the “Application Preferences” to let the user decide what kind of feature are absolutely needed regarding to his/her work-task / equipment. I don’t mean that you need to cover every single thing but the main “performance jeopardy’s” should be covered with an on/off switch.

Yes I know - that isn’t done in 5 minutes but I think that can make your life easier in the long run and will cover even more customer.

Just my two cents. ;)

1915QCAD (main)SuggestionLowViewport does not rotate view-port when changed in pape...Assigned
0%
Task Description

To reproduce

1. Select a new view-port in model-space
2. Select the appropriate paper-space
3. When the paper space opens change the angle of the viewport.

Actual

The object in the viewport changes but the viewport itself remains unchanged

Expected

That both the view-port and the object changes angle as the angle is updated

Motivation

If you abort the placement (but keep the angle) and go back to model-space and then redo the operation the view-port is rotated along the angle. It seems that the viewport only picks up the initial angle once the paper-space is open and ignores any changes thereafter

Workaround

1. Select the view-port per normal in model-space
2. Open the paper-space and set the wanted angle but do not place the view-port in paper space
3. Abort the placement on paper-space and redo the whole operation

Once the paper space is opened again the view-port will have the chosen angle
