 1897 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh File - Import broken in 3.22.1 Closed

Task Description

Import of a block from a file from file - import or its related icon does not place anything on the drawing or add it to the block list.
When you open the command, the import drawing dialog appears as well as the options tool bar. Whether save as block is checked or not, nothing happens and the options tool bar closes when a file name has been selected and open is clicked on the import drawing dialog.

Dragging and dropping a file on the main screen still works

 1906 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Draw > Polyline > Polyline from Segments: Converting fu ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Win7/32bit
QCADpro 3.22.1.0

Full 360 degrees Arcs don’t convert correct to polylines with the methods OG and OC.
Both methods create a zero-length open type Polyline and remove the full Arc.
OG creates a Poly with 2 vertexes at the startpoint (= endpoint) and OC one with 0 (zero!) vertexes.
The firts one is selectable, the second one only with ‘Select All’//TA because there are no references.

The OL method with the same start and endpoint doens’t affect the full arc.
Neither a poly is created nor an error is generated that the method failed.

Typical the bulge of the OG method is (-)16331239353195370, the OC method has no references.
The math to calculate the bulge should result in a division by zero or an illegal function as tan(π/2).
Therefore a polyline can’t contain a 360 degrees arc by standard means.

From the OC method is known that it simplify coradial arc strings to a single arc.
This should not result in 360 degrees arcs what would result in zero-length segments.
(With CAM fuzzy things may happen at such positions)

Simplifying coradial arcs strings that would create a 360 degrees arc should result in no less then two coradial Arcs.
The OG method will then creates a open Poly with 3 vertexes, OC a closed one with 2 vertexes.

Found while fiddling around with editing CXF fonts.
CXF uses full Arcs, two half arcs and even polylines with coradial segments that forms circles are supported,
the OC closed polyline with 2 vertexes is recoded as two 180 degree Arcs (90-270&270-90).

Task Description

Win7pro 32bit Wininstaller Qcadpro 3.23.0

Draw an arc.
Select the arc.
In Property Editor:
Set start angle to 135
Set end angle to 135

SweepAngle = */-360

edit the end angle and add “+360”, hit enter

SweepAngle = 0

An arc with zero sweep is a point.
A point is not an arc.
With the same start and end parameter an arc should have a sweep of +/-360.

 1925 QCAD (main)SuggestionLow Poly Ref Points manipulation that generates null-segmen ...Closed

Task Description

Win7pro 32bit Wininstaller Qcadpro 3.23.0

With a polyline.

Select the poly.
Pick any reference point of a vertex.
Place it on any of its neighboring vertex reference points.

A null-segment is created.
The placement can not be undone by re-picking the reference point.
Can be Undone/Redone.
The action can result from editing the vertex coordinates.
When exploding null-entities are created.

This action should delete:
- if the target is next: the picked vertex. (incl. start or end-1)
- if the target is prior: the targetted vertex. (incl. start or end-1)
- if the target is and next and prior: both the prior and the picked vertex.

As the user intentionally places any vertex reference points on:
- any excluding its neighbors:
→ the intented nature is ‘Self-Touching’, ‘Self-Crossing’ or ‘Trace-Back’.
- any of its neighbors:
→ the intention is to delete the segment(s).

Task Description

In the Advance SVG Export dialog, when I edit the filename to be different than the default file that already exists and then clear the checkbox for “Overwrite existing file without asking” just to make sure that I haven’t already created a file with the modified name as well, then I get a popup warning that the export would overwrite the default filename, not the name as edited. In other words, the overwrite check ignored the fact that I edited the filename.

 1936 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow ver 3.23 not saving font information Closed
100%
Task Description

The attached file is not saving font preference.
All fonts on the online layer are reported as the standard font. If I highlight one or all of the text entities and change the font to something like Yu gothic light, the property page reports yu gothic light and the screen reflects the changed font.
If I save, close and reload, the fonts for all text is again “standard”.

So then I try to enter new text via the “A” draw text command icon. I select “Broadway.ttf” as the main font in the text entry dialog.
One word “Broadway” is entered as the text. it appears on the upper left of the screen as expected and the font name is Broadway in the property editor. If I look at the dxf file source there is a whole bunch of text styles.
I save and close the file, and then open it again. Now the word Broadway has changed to font name “standard” in the property editor and is very definitely not the Broadway.ttf font.

I am not the originator of the file, I am just trying to change the font. If I start a new file and enter new text the font saves just fine, so I am thinking it is a setting somewhere, but I am unable to find it.

We (me and my customers) use these files for engraving so exact font is critical.

QCAD Professional 3.23.0 is using en_US keyboard layout although I have a Finnish keyboard on Fedora 29. I have not found a way, how to chance the keyboard definition. In Fedora repositories there is QCAD Community Edition 3.22.1, and keyboard definitions there are working OK. Keyboard layout is following Gnu desktop keyboard selection and can be changed on the fly. Wrong keyboard layout makes working very hard, because almost all special keys are in different places, like colon, semicolon, plus, minus, parentheses, slash etc.

100%
Task Description

Hi,
When a hatch have been offset in the Model then it appears incorrectly when rendered in a Viewport. It seems that in Viewports the hatch Origin value is not taken into consideration. This means that when adjusting a hatch in the Model to look correct (align along a line for example). This alignment is off in the Viewport.

See screenshots and attached test dxf file in this thread on the forum: https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=6742

Edit: After looking more into this issue is seems it is the Viewport’s position that is ignored when transforming the pattern into Viewport space. See the following gif:

https://i.imgur.com/vD8cOuC.gif

Above it can be seen that that pattern is always rendered in ‘worldspace’ since the pattern is static (the pattern is not moved when the viewport is moved around)
