Task Description

The startup script still forces a QT-style; Getting bored of that one, qcad runs fine with the system default style - probably that was a qt4 thing, that can be removed, so it blends better with the DE?

 1534 QCAD (main)SuggestionLow Headless Styling Closed
100%
Task Description

Since the launcher batch no longer requests “-style plastique” QT wants to apply the native style of the desktop environment. This fails on a headless system (or where the current user has no graphical shell to connect to) with the message “Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: “. Fortunately, QT provides a workaround in addtion to the new “platform=offscreen” flag.

In the tools that set -no-gui, beforehand export these variables into the environment

export QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=""
export QT_QPA_PLATFORM=offscreen
export DISPLAY=""

PS: QT-offscreen will not find fonts; unfortunately the workaround only allows for a single directory to search them (I need helvetica):

export QT_QPA_FONTDIR="/usr/local/share/fonts/type1"

Maybe that should get reported upstream, so that like LD_LIBRARY_PATH several directories could be specified.

 1607 QCAD (main)SuggestionVery Low Indent 'Spline Segments:' in explode preferences Closed

Graying out the drop down box for the number of spline segments establish hierarchy.

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

 1925 QCAD (main)SuggestionLow Poly Ref Points manipulation that generates null-segmen ...Closed
100%
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).

 1328 QCAD (main)ReleaseLow Windows 64bit install dir Closed
100%
Task Description

I only noticed today (perhaps they were available earlier?) that there are 64 bit binaries for windows; I suppose these are true 64 bit.

Yet, the installer prompts me to put them into “Programs (x86)”, where all the 32bit software lives, I guess - this seems to be a pure convention though, the application runs just fine.

Maybe the reason is, that the 32bit version was installed before; Maybe it should change? Maybe it should stay, so that there are not two?

 137 QCAD (main)RefactoringLow SVG Export precision Closed
100%
Task Description

In files exported with the (even PG) exporter I sometimes see values like these: 334.99999999999994 or 570.0000000000001 and very often 12 digits of precision.

To safe on file size, I suggest, that QCAD rounds values on SVG export to eg. three places. When viewed in an ordinary web browser, that will result in a precision of 1 inch / 96dpi / 1000 = 0.00026mm, not? Ends should still meet.

 138 QCAD (main)RefactoringLow SVG Export entity properties "By Layer" and "By Block" Closed
100%
Task Description

If I understand correctly, SVG export uses svg groups to keep QCAD block entities. This in itself is very useful. There is no way to correctly keep layer information, as QCAD blocks can contain elements on different layers, while SVG only knows about groups. That is a deficiency of SVG.

To save on file size, there was some potential to get rid of ever repeating same attributes on entities, eg: style=”stroke:#000000;stroke-width:0.25;stroke-dasharray:2.16,1.08”

To optimize “By Block” is easy: just set the attribute on the SVG group, and omit on below entities styled “By Block”.

To optimize “By Layer” is a little more involved, but might be solved by using css:
- Create a class by the name of the Layer
- add the class attribute to elements styled “By Layer”

Then only individually styled entities would get a style attribute, and filesize of SVG could be halved in most cases.

This just an idea :) Having written this, I now realize, that QCAD can style weight, pattern, color each extra, so the optimazition could only be applied to entities, where everything is “By Layer” or “By Block”. But that should be the case most of the time.

 1056 QCAD (main)RefactoringVery Low Dead and wrong code in RSPlatform.cpp Closed

-#elif defined(Q_OS_IRIX)
-    cores = sysconf( _SC_NPROC_ONLN );
 #endif

(truncated list to manage size)

I see that most of this was put in there as a kind of a note-to-self originally, however _SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN is implemented by every realistically possible targets anyway, so for all practical purposes, this is dead weight.

A couple of questions remain, though:

  • #ifdef Q_OS_WIN32 should probably be Q_OS_WIN, so as to include win64 as well.
  • Assuming the real purpose for this function is to determine how many parts a particular task is to be split into in the future, if and when QCAD gets the need to split expensive tasks among multiple CPUS, “core” probably shouldn’t be static - CPUs are hot-pluggable today, and while one probably doesn’t do that on a laptop, it’s not unfeasible in, say, a VDI environment.

Thoughts?

 1662 QCAD (main)Performance IssueLow Select > Select Contour: slow for complex drawings Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi!

when working with files containing many not connected elements (non-poly-line elements) a double click can cause a coffee-break easily. The search for connected entities easily takes over 5 minutes on an up to date machine (i7@3.4GHz) with files that are pretty standard in size (2 or 3 MB file size ascii dxf). Adding an interruption-method would be suitable (for example by pressing escape).

attached a file with a polyline of 13000 entities and a second file with just everything duplicated. When exploding the polyline and double clicking an element it takes quite a while until all elements are selected. (this is not an extreme example, I had sometimes 10 minutes of waiting with slightly bigger files, accidently double clicking something).

also an improved algorithm for the search would help to speed up the selection. (e.g. divide the area in smaller parts, do the search there, or an option to search only in the visible view port of the document)
