 1137 QCAD/CAMBug ReportHigh segfault creating dashed spline (without addons) Closed
100%
Task Description

Hello,

This is my first real bug report so please advise how i could provide more useful information.

I am not certain if the severity is correct.

The bug: segfault when creating a spline with a dashed linetype or opening a file containing one.

The bug isn’t present with the dwg extension installed

Steps to reproduce:
1. create drawing
2. create spline
3. set linetype to dashed
4. crash

 1142 QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLow Distance Entry in "Feet and Inches" Closed
100%
1 Task Description

I use architectural units everyday in QCAD and would appreciate being able to enter feet and inches from the “command line” for convenience and accuracy.

I have been entering “calculations” to arrive at the distance values (i.e. 10*12+6.125 = 10’-6 1/8”), but this method is time consuming and prone to input error.

I would like to see Acad’s architectural distance method implemented in QCAD. This entry method would replace the “calculated” entry with (as an example): 10’6-1/8.

Command Line: Next point: 10’6-1/8
The <’> mark triggers a 12 times multiplier for the proceeding number,
the next number is the whole inches and
the ↔ is a separator that adds the fraction to the whole inches before it.

Thanks for considering this feature request. I’m certain that many QCAD users in the Architectural, Mechanical, Electrical and Construction professions wold appreciate this convenience (especially those moving past Acad).

Task Description

When rounding the fourth corner of a rectangle, with trim checked or unchecked, instead of the corner being trimmed to a radius, the rectangle itself disappears leaving only the corner with the rounded off portion intact.

 1197 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow Small Polyline offset with 'round join' makes line segm ...Closed
100%
Task Description

When making an offset of a polyline with ‘round join’ enabled, and making a small offset of 0.0015 inches, no arcs are made, only coarsely interpolated line segments.
Further tests show that this is true until the offset is increased 0.040 inches; then the offset begins to create arcs.

The creation of arcs in a polyline offset with such small distances did work in QCAD 2.x.

 1237 QCAD/CAMBug ReportMedium Blocks should be layer agnostic Closed
100%
Task Description

I have created a block from a selection. I have then later created more items on my CAD page using that block, then later yet, moved the objects to a new layer. I noticed that while the object has accepted being on the new layer, the color hasn’t changed to the new layer’s color. I can only get the line color to change if I go into the block itself and move the individual segments of the block to that new layer, then save the new block (which, by the way, I can’t save over the existing block?!?!)

In the sample file attached, you will see that the block item in the 3 o’clock position is in layer 0, while the rest are in “Vent Holes” layer. If you make layer 0 hidden, the one block is hidden (like it should), but the block item refuses to take on the layer’s color even though the block’s color is “By Layer”

 1240 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow USB Flas Drive save makes the drive Read Only Closed
100%
Task Description

This problem is USB Flash drive related.

First of all, QCAD does not show the flash drive a drive where data can be stored, but it does when one wants to open a file.

If one then did open a file from the flash drive, saving it back tot he flash drive change the permission of the entire drive to read only and I could not manage to change that other than formatting the drive.

 1322 QCAD/CAMBug ReportHigh Fonts mixed up witch code tables Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,

In ‘Application preferences, Draw, Text’ fonts can be selected.

There is a mixing up between fonts (the appearance of characters on screen) and code tables (what digital code is used for each character).

‘ISO8859-11’ is the 8 bit Thai (!) code table and not a font
‘Unicode’ is the 16 bit code table and not a font.

For downward comptability QCAD should use default font Standard (ISO3098) with code table ISO8859-1 (US-ASCII Latin-1).

Task Description

Hi,

Using the Copy and Move command the [ ] Use current layer and attributes’ is confusing.

Perhaps [ ] change copy /moved set to current layers and attributes. is more suitable.

 1369 QCAD/CAMBug ReportVery Low qcad-bin is trying to access non-existent /home/andrew Closed
100%
Task Description

I experience long start delays. I’ve trace the problem to the fact that I have autofs automounting my home directories. However, an strace of qcad-bin shows the following:

execve("/opt/ribbonsoft/qcad/qcad-3.12.6/qcad-bin", ["/opt/ribbonsoft/qcad/qcad-3.12.6"...], [/* 87 vars */]) = 0

stat("/home/andrew/local/qt/lib", 0x7fff4722f250) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

Since there is no “andrew” user here, I have to wait for automount to timeout which takes about 2m and is rather annoying.

 1398 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow Duplicate zoom buttons in toolbar and menu Closed
100%
Task Description

I am seeing duplicate zoom buttons in the View toolbar, and also under the View menu. Under Application Preferences→General→Tool Settings there are also multiple entries for these, with Shortcuts and Commands highlighted in red (means there are conflicts?). This is the QCAD/CAM version on Linux 32-bit Debian “testing” release. I also tried the same version on Windows 7 64-bit and am not seeing this issue. Screen shots attached.

Unit of drawing is in metres and radius is set to 2.38.
The circle displays as a polygon instead.

 1467 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow Short leader will not render the arrow Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,

I tried to add a leader and for some reason the arrow does not appear. I found out that this occurs when the line is short. To me, line is sufficiently long enough but somehow QCAD thinks it is too short.

Screenshot shows added leader.

Also when I try to change arrow: no to “yes”, while the dropdown shows yes, I am not able to select it. It just defaults to no.

Workaround:
Draw longer line.

Task Description

QCAD/CAM version 3.16.7.1 (snapshot release)

QCAD/CAM version 3.16.7.1 for Ubuntu Linux starts up with a totally black screen with only the title bar showing. By clicking around at the top of the screen I can get the menus to drop down and appear over the blank black screen. That is how I captured all the version information below. QCAD/CAM version: 3.15.5.0 for Ubuntu Linux starts with all the normal screen graphics appearing normally. I labeled this bug report as critical because QCAD/CAM is unusable on Ubuntu Linux, but for me it is not so critical since I can use the Windows version.

 1685 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow LinuxCNC no longer works under CAM Legacy Export  Closed
100%
Task Description

On any version newer than 3.18.0 the LinuxCNC options under “Configuration” drop-down no longer work under CAM→CAM Legacy Export. As you can see in the attached screen shot, the menu line which would normally contain LinuxCNC is blank. Also, when LinuxCNC (Inch) and LinuxCNC (Millimeter) are selected, none of the Global or per-Layer options are available, it just says “No Global Options” and “No Layer Options” as you can also see in the screen shot. I think this is because both of these are derivatives of the main LinuxCNC configuration which is not working.

I have confirmed this problem with fresh installs (using the installer) on both Windows 10 and Debian testing

 FS#1813  Revisited. (Several bugs in QCAD/CAM 3.21.3. when generating G-code in “G-code Laser (offset).)

Hi Andrew,

After closing the bug notification I realised I didn’t add the DXF. My apologies for not attaching the DXF-file at hand.

Fortunately I am not the only one;

You can fix the missing G01 by replacing your file postprocessors/GCodeLaserOffsetMM.js with the attached updated file.

Since it was not attached, that makes two of us.

Anyway I have attached the DXF-file to be tested.

 1820 QCAD/CAMBug ReportMedium CAM Export: exporting text entities broken Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Kubuntu, QCAD/CAM 3.21.3

Font Standard. Selected as ‘single line’ font for engraving with mill or laser.

While CAM Exporting as G-code Laser (Offset) MM, or as Linux CNC, Exporting gets trapped in a loop.

In Font Standard the glyph’s ? & $ @ s S Q and 2 contains unwanted Z-movements. It seems these glyphs entities are not alligned properly; endpoint last line does not meet startpoint next line; why else the Z-movements?

Could this misallignment also traps Exporting?

Hi Andrew,

I was fiddeling around with a copy of the hpgl postprocessor, and has it adapted, up and running for a HP7580 penplotter. You may add this to QCAD if you like.

Poking and peeking in the other postprocessor files, I found enough information to generate a very acceptable hpgl.plt file now, including the required pen changes.

The purpose of a ‘bracket-field’ (as [S] ) is clear to me. Where are [S#] and [S!] used for?

I use gcode ripper for some of my jobs.

What I would like to see is a way to run it from my own custom post processor that I wrote for my machine. Maybe some kind of keyword that allows me to specify an arbitrary external command with some parameters. It would be very helpful to me. I create a lot of ad-hock jobs to run.

 1997 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow CAM > CAM Export: Fails for new document created Closed
100%
1 Task Description

When I create a simple drawing, I cannot export the gcode until I restart qcad.

general steps to reproduce the issue:
1. open a new drawing
2. Add a letter “D” near the origin in Arial font, about 7mm tall.
3. explode it
4. save the drawing
5. Fill in in the “cam configuration” 6. Select the drawing and generate the tool paths.
7. Hit the “export button” or the menu item.
8. Observe that you see the “camexport” command appears in the command section, but there is no file generated for the gcode.

If you restart qcad, then the gcode will export as expected. Also, it appears to work for more complicated drawings. I had the same issue, when I tried to generate the same thing, but using the string “November 2019” at 5mm height. I am using up to date MX Linux with kernel version 4.19.0. I also observed this behavior under Windows 10 professional.

If I need to check which number I’ve used last time there is no way to find the actual used value - it will show me always 1.
If I restart QCAD/CAM the value is completely lost and the nesting tool tries to fit in as much as possible into the sheet - regardless that the quantity number still shows one.

It would be nice to have a remember function even after restarting QCAD/CAM and have some kind of possibility to see the last used value.

 2055 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow RTF text formatting not supported Closed
100%
Task Description

If any text in a dxf file use RTF formatting for their fonts, the RTF code is not decoded and the text ends up showing the entire RTF code instead of just the intended text.
Most other editors (Draftsight, Autocad, Powerdraft) support the RTF codes which makes importing files from those editors problematic. See attached file for an example.

 2232 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow Nesting fails when parts fit plus minus null on sheets Closed
100%
Task Description

Just lost a detailed report (token?)- now a short version!

Nesting fails when parts fit plus minus null on sheets. My parts should fit regarding to the measurements on a sheet multiple times. The nesting tool can’t find a solution.

Options are:
Quantity multiplier: 0
Rotation: 4
Sheet margin: 0
Margin: 0
Tolerance: 0

If I modify the parts and make them slightly smaller then a nesting is done as expected. Did I miss something?
