 809 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Hatch modifications and undo Closed
100%
1 Task Description

- Draw ellipse
- Fill ellipse (solid or hatch)
- Rotate ellipse and filling
- Undo

→ Angle of ellipse shaped fill is not undone.

Other hatch boundary elements that break or cannot be undone:
- splines from fit points
- arcs (when only one point is moved, e.g. stretch)
- circles (when radius changes, e.g. scale, position changes)
- ellipses (when major point changes)

817QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSnap and cut all intersection in a given area tool ...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

As we all know - from time to time - it is a lot of work to prepare a part of a drawing for a hatch.
To get rid of one of the basic task (cutting lines along the desired hatch boundary) it would be nice to have an add-on - or what ever - what would cut ALL intersection in a drawing (or just on one layer, or just based on a selection etc.) with just a mouse click. Then it would be much faster and easier to do the selection for the hatch boundaries.
The user could decide to make it directly in his drawing or he like to duplicate the drawing to an extra layer where this function will be used ....

Clive mentioned on this:
Maybe a tool like this could be an additional ‘Snap’ selection option - select all snap intersections or select snap intersections within a boundary! then as you suggest ‘cut’ at the intersection points.

823QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd Midpoint Handles to Lines and PolylinesAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

The Midpoint Handles should be used to move Polyline Segments and lines. This would add easy to access stretch functionality.
Combined with a shortcut(hold down shift or alt etc.) to fix the movement to be orthogonal to the line this would bring a lot of extra value.
It would also be possible to to have another shortcut to easily insert nodes to Polylines (again hold shift or alt etc.)

Version - 3.1, binary.

If I “Draw text” with text “aaaa bbbb” - it displays correctly, but when I enter “аааа бббб” (with russian keyboard) - I see that “аааа” and “бббб” are displayed one above other - see screenshot.

The same problem is for imported .dxf file with russian texts in it. Problem makes the solution as a whole actually inusable for (at least, some of) russian users.

849QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMake maximum visible reference points of selection conf...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Provide configuration option to raise / lower maximum reference points that are shown for selected entities (currently fixed to 1000).

Original report:

Imported a spline-dxf from adobe illustrator. Converted the spline to polyline with explode command. Then no anchor points / vertex points / vertices were showing anymore. Simplified the polyline so that it had less than 1000 points. Vertices became visible.

I think some freeform objects need actually more than 1000 vertices. Also them need to be edited. Please increase the amount of vertices showing to biginteger

853QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowKeep selection after undo ...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

If I move something and it went wrong I can easily undo the last move and start over without the need of a re-selection.
If I copy something and it went wrong I can undo the last copy but I have to re-select everything again.

It would be nice to keep the once chosen selection in both “undo” situation!

Same with similar functions like rotate etc. ....

860QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow"Create Library item from selection" default Path ...Assigned

1 Task Description

Default Path for “Create Library item from selection” / “Save us” is C:\Programme\QCAD pro 3.1.6 ...
... regardless of the settings in the “Application Preferences / Library Browser / for Library Sources.
And QCAD doesn’t remember the last path choice ....

If I have to save 50 Library Items I have to navigate 50 times thru my system to find - the same place.

It would be nice if QCAD would point in first place to the Library Source or, at least, remember the last used path ... ;-)

 877 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Patches to build QCAD 3.2.0.0 on FreeBSD Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Hello,

The attached patches are used to build QCAD on FreeBSD.

Notes:

- patch-shared_app.pri adds a dependency to libexecinfo. It is marked as fixed in  FS#876 , but still there.

It could be useful also for the other BSDs.

- patch-src_3rdparty_opennurbs_opennurbs_system.h remove malloc.h. It is marked as fixed in  FS#875 , but still there.

- patch-src_3rdparty_3rdparty.pro, patch-src_core_core.pro, patch-src_core_math_RSpline.h and patch-src_entity_entity.pro allow to use opennurbs as a dependency from the ports system, which is the recommended method, but you may ignore them in the general distribution sources if you prefer.

- patch-src_core_RSettings.cpp is specific to the ports system (”/usr/local/share/qcad” is not really hardcoded, and modified according to $PREFIX at build time): you may ignore it if you want.

Best regards,

Th. Thomas

923QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDiagramming (Intelligent Orthogonal Connectors)Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi,

With the new block attribute feature available in QCAD 3.3, there’s little to be done in order to make QCAD a good environment for typesetting circuits and other diagrams. In particular, the only killer feature that lasts is support for connectors: orthogonal lines that connecting one endpoint to another creates a connection line; when the concerned entities are moved the connection line is re-arranged. I’d like to know whether commercial support for this feature is available.

0%
1 Task Description

Absolutely love the new options for adding the measurements in the current drawing.

I would like to see an additional option for only adding the text and not the lines also, maybe a simple check box would suffice here.

Of course at the moment I am able to use the property editor to select only the lines and move to a new layer and hide!

 959 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Trimming two lines which already meet causes both to di ...Closed
100%
1 Task Description

If I “Trim Both” a pair of lines which already meet, then neither line changes appearance on screen (as expected). However, after saving and reloading the file, both lines are now missing.

To reproduce:

  1. Create a new drawing
  2. Draw a 10×10 square
  3. Save the drawing
  4. Close and reopen. The square shows up as expected.
  5. Use the Trim Both tool on a pair of lines meeting at one of the corners. No change in the display.
  6. Save the drawing
  7. Close and reopen. The lines used in step 5. have disappeared.

If one or both of the lines changes length, either lengthened or shortened, then the changed line is preserved.

Build information:

Version: 3.4.2.0 (3.4.2)
Build Date: Oct 25 2013
Qt Version: 4.7.4
Compiler: MSVC++ 10.0 (2010)

 1071 QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery Low (Bitmap) scaling convenience option Closed
100%
1 Task Description

This can be done as is in QCAD today, but a quick convenience UI bit would be much appreciated.

Suppose you are working off a bitmap image (transcribing old scan, or you got your apartment’s floor plan like this, because, uh, what tenant needs DXF). It has dimensions markers and everything, but fat chance it’ll be to actual CAD scale after importing.

So, to bring it to scale, you measure between two tick marks on the scale, compute ratio based on measurement and what’s written on the dimension line, and do a scale operation (you can also have QCAD compute the ratio by using math expression, whatever).

That works fine.

A purely just for convenience function to do that would be much appreciated: pick two points, enter what the actual distance between them is, poof bam, appropriate scaling operation is applied.

As a twist, there could be some other bitmap skewing options, like “the points I’ve selected are on a horizontal/vertical line/at an angle of X degrees, then the bitmap would also be applied this transform.

 1096 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow SVG import: support scale transforms Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Add support for scale transforms in SVG import.

Original report:

When importing an SVG created with Inkscape, one of the elements (rectangle) is shifted (mirrored?) to the left.
The example (back.svg) is appended. If you open it with Inkscape, you see the rectangle should be above the “USB” label.

My impression is that the sign of the X coordinate is swapped for some reason. At least if I mirror it
using two points on the Y axis, it seems to appear where it should be.

Apart from this, also the dimensions are wrong after import. In the original SVG, the outer shape is 144.3mm wide.
This is also visible in the header of the SVG:

 width="144.300mm"
 height="53.800mm"

However, after importing to QCad, the width is measured as 40.7247. This is a puzzling factor of 3.5433 which doesn’t look
like metric/imperial conversion issue but like a complete misinterpretation of the sizes/units used in the SVG.

1100QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd drag dimension (snap) along dimension lineAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

In Autocad when making a dimension when left clicking to place the dimension there is the possibility to drag the dimension to either side of the dimension. This is also possible with Qcad dimension, but it losses the snapping and does not extend the dimension line out to the dimension text.

This is very useful when the two lines the needs a dimension are close together, or overlapping with another.

Attached is two images one for autocad and one for Qcad

Hello,

I am stage manager and I have been using QCAD PRO nearly every day for 2 years now.
But since yesterday it seems that text is not saved within the file : when I reopen a saved file, text doesn’t show up. Do I miss a setting ?
I currently run Mac OS X Mavericks but there haven’t been any issues with this OS for months.

I deleted the app and prefs and tried out with 3.6.0 (which I don’t use because it often quits brutally), and also the free version of 3.6.4
But the issue still the same.

As I use this app for my work, it is very annoying not to be able to use text !

100%
1 Task Description

Hi,

if I have an arc and use the Property Editor to get the Geometrical information I always miss the total angle of the arc.

Yes - I have the Start and the End angle but to get the Total angle I have to draw construction lines to be able to use the Angular Dim or Info angle tool /or I need to use a pocket calculator ...

It would be nice to have this calculated by QCAD - I assume it can’t be that difficult to design an extra field which will display, based on the start and end angle, the total angle of an arc.

What do you think?

The new tool “Paste along entity” is very useful! But I work mostly in mechanical engineering and would like to see more options to determine where it has to start with the first insert item.

Screenshot:

1. That is how it works right now - no chance to get it started on both ends of an line.

2. If I need to have my items also on the ends I have to use additional the normal “Paste” function.

3. If I could tell the “Paste along entity” that there is a start and end “Base” dimension then I’m a big step further. ;-)

I could tell the tool that it has to start at “0” or at “25” and the rest is just regarding the calculation. Correct?

However - you need many times in mechanical engineering etc. a hole pattern which will start at:

0,25,25,25,25,25,25,25,25,0

or

25, 123.5, 123.5, 123.5, 123.5, 123.5, 25

It would be very nice to have this also in combination with the “Paste along entity” tool ;-)

 1195 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Installer should not require prior version to be uninst ...Closed
100%
1 Task Description

I would like to see the installer not stop because there is already a version of QCAD installed. This is the only product that I have used in recent history that requires the prior version to be uninstalled before the new version can be installed.

Please consider removing this requirement and let the installer do an update.

Thanks
Jim

 1201 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow SVG import: add support for circles, ellipses Closed
100%
1 Task Description

The attached file should result in two overlapping circles, it does not, it results in a single ellipse.

The “<circle ... />” directive seems just be ignored in this case, but in other instances I have seen it result in ellipses.

And the “<ellipse ... />” directive should of course result in a circle, when rx and ry are the same.

1214QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowArray of blocks -> Clipboard -> "flip pasted entities" ...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Case:

Select a block array,
put it with “Copy with reference” or “Cut with reference” into the clipboard,
choose a reference point which isn’t in the center of the array,
use the paste tool / with option “flip pasted entities”

If I flip only in horizontal or vertical direction the preview box will double in size and I can’t place the entities precisely regarding to the reference point.
If I try to flip in both directions at the same time - you can’t see this effect.
