1 Task Description

Absolutely love the new options for adding the measurements in the current drawing.

I would like to see an additional option for only adding the text and not the lines also, maybe a simple check box would suffice here.

Of course at the moment I am able to use the property editor to select only the lines and move to a new layer and hide!

0%
Task Description

Es wäre schön wenn ich Werte wie zum Beispiel Längen von Linien direkt abgreifen könnte um diese weiter in Berechnungen verwenden zu können.

Beispiel:
Ich habe eine Linie konstruiert wobei sich eine Länge y ergeben hat.

Nun möchte ich eine Linie zeichnen die 5 mal y sein soll.

Linientool → Wert 5* eingeben und y durch Auswahl mit der Maus von dem vorhandenen Elements übernehmen.

Natürlich könnte ich die Geometrie Info benutzen um den Wert abzulesen oder auch über die Zwischenablage zu benutzen. Ein abgreifen mit der Maus wäre aber schneller, direkter und wahrscheinlich auch mit weniger Fehlern (Human error) verbunden. Wahrscheinlich auch genauer da QCad, denke ich, mit mehr Nachkommastellen rechnet, oder?

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.

1230QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFile > PDF Export / SVG Export: export layersAssigned
0%
Task Description

Dear Andrew, just in case you should ever run out of ideas for enhancements; As an advisor I sometimes get PDF files and recently, some CAD drawings contained layers, which is kind of nifty to reduce the clutter.

Sadly though, qprinter/qpainter seem to be unaware of OCG (Optional Content Groups, the PDF jargon for layers) at the moment, so my plea is for the back burner now. Probably in SVG though it can be done? Yet that is of a little less use, maybe…

1471QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFile > Open file locationAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

When working with several files is normal also to work in several folders, this can be confusing, expecially in the case where there are different folders with equal file names.
I propose the creation of a “Open file location”. This, probably under the main menu, “File”, when clicked would open the standard
“file explorer” with the folder that contains the current file already selected.
It would be quite similar to the windows 8/10 “Open file location”.

1663QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFeature Request: Export Layers as New DrawingAssigned
0%
2 Task Description

Hi!

in many tasks in qcad I ended up exporting one or several layers into individual files for some cnc jobs or further processing. So the steps I usually do are:

  • select all elements on the layer
  • paste into new drawing
  • sometimes rename layer names or attributes
  • adjust dimension settings
  • save and give name for drawing

Sometimes I have up to 100 layers I need to export like this, so an automatic export for all would be time saving too. But very often a “single click” export method would also help a lot. (e.g. inside the layer list an entry in the right click menue like “save as new file”). Also a multiple selection would be handy if more that one layer should end up in the new file. (e.g. select the three layers that need to be in the new document, then right click and save as new file). Maybe this is too much of changes needed inside the layer list - so something like a separate layer export dialogue would make sense.

When exporting many layers some variables for automatic naming of layers and filename would make sense e.g. user can specify basename_%L.dxf to get the basename_layername.dxf or just an increasing number.

For layers and attributes it is often needed to give a layer a certain name or color for different cnc processes (e.g. engraving and cutting for lasers) or to put everything on layer “0” because of some old CAM software that only supports content on layer 0.

probably many more details would make sense that I didn’t think of yet...

kind regards
Martin

1923QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery LowFaulty rendering Polylines with Global/Local Widths and...Assigned
0%
1 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.

Polyline arcs with Width = 2R render as circle segments rather than circle sectors.
As Non-reversed arcs these don’t explode.
As reversed arc these explode to a single arc rather than a circle sector contour.

There is also still the faulty rendering with Z not zero

951QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowExtra Option for Block attributes ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

It would be nice to have the possibility to control the automatic Text orientation in Block attributes.
Something what would work like the DIM restriction: I can read the text horizontal and/or from the right side of the drawing sheet.

Right now I have the feeling that the Text orientation is dependent on the tool what I even use.
Different tools = different outcomes.

1 Task Description

When working with the isometric grid (in any projection - Top, Right, Left) and drawing from ‘scratch’ as it were, without using the projection tools - I find myself using ‘Line from Angle’ the most.

It would be extreamly useful to be presented with two extra buttons when using this tool, a 30 degree button and a -30 degree button, this way I wouldn’t need to keep typing in the angle difference here.

0%
1 Task Description

When exporting to SVG it would be helpful if there was a selection of layers to export.
E.g. when selecting only layer A in the SVG export dialog, only the objects located/displayed on layer A would be exported to SVG.

As an alternative or additional export feature, there could be an option to export each (non-empty) layer to a separate SVG in one step.
The layer names could be used as (part of the) default file names during the export.
E.g. Layer A of file XYZ would be exported to “XYZ_A.SVG” while layer B would be exported to “XYZ_B.SVG” etc.

2287QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery LowEvaluate draw order for preference "Prevent white-on-wh...Assigned
0%
Task Description

The Application Preference setting “Graphics View - Appearance - Prevent white-on-white/black-on-black display” seems to be a global setting that doesn’t take the draw order into account. For example: With the setting enabled, it prevents creating a white hatch of a higher draw order on top of a larger, colored hatch with lower draw order (background). The preference does not seem to evaluate if the object is truly drawn as “white-on-white”.

With the preference enabled, setting the object color as “white” will set the “white” color label, but the object color actually stays black. Its hard to determine why it happens in that case.

Is it possible to let the global preference setting be applied to objects after evaluation of the draw order, and determine if the object actually is a true case of white-on-white?

My workaround: Disable the preference setting (I think it is default = on), and only enable it for ad-hoc checks of hidden and overlooked objects.

It would be extreamly useful to have an option to either use - or not use leader lines in the standard horizontal/vertical dimension line tools, some of the drawings I’m working on need the ‘standard’ looking dimensions with leader lines and some don’t. its a real pain to have to select - explode and delete all the leaders I don’t need.

Start up QCAD, (with existing or new configuration, doesn’t seem to matter), “Save as” the completely empty drawing, choose “R15 (dxflib)” on Pro (only this one is available on community), save drawing.

Fire up AutoCAD 2000, try to load the empty drawing just saved.

Result:

DXF read error

DXF read error on line 941.
Invalid or incomplete DXF input -- drawing discarded.

Problem not present when a completely empty drawing saved using Teigha in R15 format is opened (ie. it just results in an empty drawing in AutoCAD 2000). Problem is also not present when saving an existing drawing with Pro (trial) with Teigha and opening it in AutoCAD 2000. Problem does present when trying to open a dxflib-saved drawing in AutoCAD 2000.

Empty drawings created with both dxflib 3.3.4.0 in QCAD Pro 3.4.5 trial and Teigha whatever in QCAD Pro trial 3.4.5 are attached. (Community Git 135fd0 is identical to Pro - same dxflib version.)
