 264 QCAD (main)Feature RequestMedium Support for "Layouts" (paper space, viewport) Closed
100%
25 Task Description

There is one important ACAD feature that I would really like to see supported in QCAD3 and that is “Layouts”

Looking at the block lists, it seems to me that it can’t be too much extra work to support it, since the model space and different paper spaces are already shown there - and one can edit it.

QCAD draws infinitely easier than ACAD and drawing layouts is a primary feature of ACAD. With this in QCAD I can hardly see why anyone that does 2D work would need ACAD at all.

293QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowmulti-select for blocksAssigned
0%
Task Description

It would be nice if one could select multiple blocks in the block list at once (holding ctrl or ctrl+shift). Main purpose would be to delete them if they are not needed anymore. If possible, the same applies to layers.

 304 QCAD (main)Feature RequestMedium invalid hatch area hint Closed

 315 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow SVG PG export polylines Closed

316QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowBlocks list and selected blockAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Wouldn’t it be nice, if selecting a block in model view would somehow highlight (just like clicking a block in the list does) the selected block in the “Block List” window?

(Feature request sounds a little harsh, enhancement proposal would seem more apt.)

355QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRemember function for dimension OptionAssigned
0%
Task Description

I think it would be nice to have more flexibility for Prefix etc. option (not only the drop down with a given choice) and a remember function for all those fields like postfix and tolerance.

Why Remember Function:
If I use a postfix like <>” in the postfix field I’m only able to use it for this particular dimension type at this time. If I change the type (from Horizontal to vertical or what ever) I have always to repeat my postfix. The same with tolerances.

 408 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Script Macro recorder Closed

Having practically no experience in scripting, a recorder that one could activate to memorize repetitive tasks (ie: inserting several layers with different attributes when starting a new drawing)would a useful tool to help get a start on scripting.

 417 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Autosave Dateinamen Nummer ersetzten mit Datum. Closed
100%
Task Description

Wenn ich das Autosave System richtig verstanden habe funktioniert es so:

Nach Ablauf der eingestellten Zeit wird eine Datei mit Nummer im angegebenen Zielordner abgelegt.
Diese Nummer ist weder fortlaufend noch sicher auf- oder absteigend - also keinerlei Hinweis im Dateinamen für den Anwender welches nun die letzte Sicherung ist.
Ziel scheint zu sein das man eine Sicherung pro Tag hat, richtig?

Allerdings ist die Anzahl der Sicherungen pro Tag abhängig von der Anzahl der neu gestarteten QCAD Sitzungen. Starte ich das Programm einmal für den ganzen Tag habe ich eine einzige Sicherung von jeder bearbeiteten Zeichnung. Sicherungen haben dann die selbe Nummer und werden deshalb jeweils überschrieben.

Starte ich das Programm 10 mal pro Tag habe ich 10 Sicherungen (vorausgesetzt ich bearbeite die selbe Zeichnung in jeder Sitzung) mit unterschiedlichen und nicht in Reihe laufenden Nummern. Sicherungen können somit nicht überschrieben werden und am ende des Tages könnten leicht zig wenn nicht hunderte Sicherungen gespeichert sein.

Würde nun diese Nummer im Dateinamen ersetzt mit dem aktuellen Datum habe ich eine Sicherung pro Tag unabhängig wie oft ich QCAD an diesem Tag gestartet habe. Zudem kann der Anwender gleich den Sicherungstag im Dateinamen erkennen und muss sich nicht durch die “geändert am” Info sekundengenau kämpfen.

Macht das Sinn?

 454 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow combined move/rotate/scale with two reference points Closed

It would be extremely helpful, if marked objects could be moved/rotated/scaled in a single step with two reference points as source and two reference poitns as destination. With a tool like this, “should match”-drawings could be merged easily.

 477 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow crop objects at page margins Closed
100%
Task Description

It would be nice if QCad would print only objects inside page margins (i.e. to print a detail of a large drawing with margins). At the moment objects are visible up to page borders, and exporting to PDF with re-printing to a larger page contains even more objects.
