 2258 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Selected entities send to an 'Off' layer retain their s ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Andrew,

Seen in al previous versions that I know of.
To recreate and merely as an example:
With:
- A polyline entity on a layer ‘polyline’ (notLocked - notFrozen - Visible)
- A hidden layer ‘exploded’ (notLocked - notFrozen - notVisible)

- Select the polyline .. DP .. XP » duplicated polyline explosion in selection.
- Set the selection its layer to ‘exploded’ by a double click in the Layer List or by Property Editor.
- Hide layer ‘polyline’ by toggling its visibility.
- Unhide layer ‘exploded’ by toggling its visibility.

The explosion is still in a dark red color.
Workaround: TA & TN

 2267 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow In-place block editing: some block references not faded Closed
100%
Task Description

I noticed a bug while editing blocks in place. When I opt to edit in place, most of the surrounding blocks fade out properly, but some don’t. Although I can’t edit them, as they are not faded, It can be tricky to identify what is in the current block or not while editing a bigger assembly.

Another suggestion is to add a keyboard shortcut command to the “save and close”.

Otherwise, this is a fantastic feature that really enabled me to buy the QCAD and start using it professionally. In place editings are a key feature for my projects and drawings.

Thanks in advance.

IMG 1 shows my drawing

IMG 2 shows a block being edited “not in place”

IMG 3 shows a surrouding block being edited “not it place”

IMG 4 and 5 shows the in place edit of the block shown in IMG 2 and the surrouding blocks not being properly faded.

2272QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSupport unit "US survey foot"Assigned
0%
Task Description

In the US, it is (unfortunately) still common to use US survey foot. It seems at least some DXF applications/libraries support this unit as a $INSUNITS value, some references:

There are two issues regarding this with QCAD:

  1. If you open a document with $INSUNITS being 21, it’s reset to 0 (unitless/unspecified) when saved again, even when not changing anything.
  2. It is not possible to select these units in the GUI.

I don’t know about standardization of these values, but my hope is that it’s at least possible to preserve the unit in an existing drawing. Given that this unit is supposed to be obsolete in some years, it might seem less important, but due to this transition, it might get even more important to be able to distinguish between units. Thanks!

Trimming With AX slows down with many text entities.
Seeing the same lagging with D2 on Circle entities.

Also seen on Windows 10 Pro 3.26.4.0
Forum topic: https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=8729

Attached files:
TrimAuto_1.dxf ... 11 entities ... trimming instantaneous
TrimAuto_2.dxf ... 11 entities + 1936 LINES ... rather instantaneous
TrimAuto_3.dxf ... 11 entities + 1936 ARCS ... less than 1 second
TrimAuto_4.dxf ... 11 entities + 121 TEXT ... over 3 or 4 seconds
Slower for larger Arc / Circle

The questions here are:
Should AX trim at text entities?
Can this be optional?

The layer properties dialog has a drop down that lists all of ones layers. The dialog itself can be stretched horizontally, but the drop down doesn’t stretch with it.

 2280 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dimension arrows not filled Closed
100%
Task Description

Version QCAD 3.26.4.7 / Windows x86_64

Existing drawing:

1. e.g. flange.dxf loads with no fills (solid hatch) for arrows,
2. New dimension are also without arrow fills.
3. This existing drawing has Text above line! Setting Drawing Preferences / Dim to “Horizontal text labels” will alter Text to be Horizontal BUT also open a gap for the text which is a separate setting (Text above dimension Line). Undo doesn’t works on this properly - used multiple times will even change the dim color which wasn’t changed in this operation.

New drawing:

1. Same test scenario - same issue.
2. Dim settings = Horizontal text Labels ticked, Text above dimension Line ticked produces a dim horizontal orientated with a gap instead to put the text above the line

0%
Task Description

Hello, I am not sure if this is a bug or if I use it wrong way. But when I create block with two identical block attributes everything look ok. I Can insert it to drawing, set the value (both will change). But when I use “Synchronize attribute (UY)”, only one will stay. It would be fine if both would stay. But I understand that you probably use tag as identification.

To reproduce the problem just open the attached file and press UY

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

2283QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd a "Select Similar " commandAssigned
0%
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!

Task Description

In the latest QCAD Community Edition source code (2.0.5.0-1-community), the wrong action is triggered for the “pa” keycode. Specifically, it triggers the basic draw line command. Here is the relevant code from qcadcmd/src/rs_commands.cpp, in RS_Commands::keycodeToAction:

100%
Task Description

QCAD2 offered the user to specify in the program settings where these directories should be/go, and took the first one in each list as default; QCAD3 only offers to enter auxiliary library and template directories and has no provisions for defaults.

All associated data (scipts, templates, libraries, patterns, fonts) is stored under the program directory, exactly where it should not be. Windows 7 and higher default prevent modifying the programs directory by redirecting the writes.
An extra user-input during the Windows install process would be in order.

QCAD3 should offer the user to specify any and all data directories involved (including the auto save), and make it possible to specify a default for each.
This list could be initialised with the installation defaults, or default to the installation directories when empty.

 890 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low Relative zero point mark artifact on print preview Closed
100%
Task Description

The relative zero point mark appears on the print preview screen. I don’t know, if it also gets printed (my printer setup appears to be broken at the moment), but it does not get exported to PDF, so I guess it is only on the print preview.

On a side note, I think that the reset command (qq) should also clear this. The manual states:

The Neutral State of QCAD
Menu:    Edit - Reset
Keycode: QQ

After the start, QCAD is in its neutral state. That means that no special tool is active and QCAD waits for you to click a menu or tool button to start a tool and start doing something.

As there is no relative zero point just after startup, I think it should also not persist a qq.
