 234 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh File completely erased/corrupted; then duplicates upon  ...Closed
100%
Task Description

I have been working with a file in 2.2 which I then opened with beta 3. All seemed to be well for a couple of days. Today the application closed itself. When I restarted and tried to load the file it came up duplicated. One tab showed nothing, the other showed my drawing with blue lines and the tab headers (file name) were identical except that the ‘blue line’ tab had an asterisk after the file name indicating that the file had been changed. Highlighting a ‘blue line’ element showed the properties with colour white.

I’m running 64bit Ubuntu 11.04. ‘Blue line’ file attached. Any quick way to change the blue lines to default white?

 227 QCAD (main)TaskLow Library browser as separate tool Closed
100%
Task Description

Split up library browser as separate, QCAD independent tool.

TODO

- Potential interaction with other products / release as separate product?

DONE

- Remove DB dependency from QCAD 3.
- start-up splash screen
- avoid drop in browser widget
- app name
- menu (exit, about, preferences)
- preference dialog
- fix app icon
- window title
- library browser as single app
- raise window to the top on start

Motivation

- Make QCAD 3 more reliable to start.
- Make QCAD 3 faster to start (if library browser not used).
- Reduce memory usage if library browser not open.

Interface with QCAD 3

- Launch Library browser from menu or tool button.

QCAD launches library browser for example as:
./QCAD -autostart scripts/Tools/LibraryBrowser/LibraryBrowser.js

- Insertion of library parts with drag and drop (like so far). No change should be required for this (?).

Hello,
Just started with the program. I opened drawing made under 2.2 pro to modify it. Everything works ok (deleting entities) but as soon as I start removing unused layers, I get an error message when trying to save my work (photo attached). The previouly saved file becomes an empty file...Working on Win7x64, logged as admin.

 225 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Allow fraction notation for number input / display Closed
100%

 223 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow No return to main window after opening a block window. Closed
100%
Task Description

I have a drawing imported from 2.2. I have tried to edit a block and the block window duly opens. However I can’t get back to my main drawing window. In the earlier version I could select a main drawing window. The window menu did not offer any other window to select. The window shown in the list was the name of the main file and clicking on it did nothing. The Tile and Cascade options worked but showed no other windows.

 222 QCAD (main)Bug ReportCritical MacOS X Lion Installation problem Closed
100%
Task Description

Installation problem.
After uneventful installation on MacOS X Lion 10.7.1 on a MacBook Pro Core I5 the QCAD will not launch by clicking into the app. When trying to launch the application by the command line I received an error message regarding the “plugin” folder, as follows:

al:MacOS everaldo$ ./QCAD
application directory: “/Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/MacOS”
working path: “/Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/Resources”
plugins folder does not exist

Renaming the folder from “/Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/PlugIns” to “Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/plugins” solved the problem.

Regards.

 221 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow autocad dwg compatibility Closed
100%
Task Description

DWG files created with QCAD display really fine now in autocad. There are only two minor issues for ACAD users:

1) ACAD complains, that they were not created with a licensed application. One may not be able to work around that one...

2) ACAD complains, that the file does not specify a codepage. For this one, there should be a way around, shouldn’t it?

I am very happy with the compatibility in the new QCAD. Thank you very much for all the efforts that went into it!

 217 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow SVG export ignores exportPoints setting Closed
100%
Task Description

Both SvgExporters ignore the exportPoints setting. Attached patch takes care of that. To be applied from within the “scripts” directory.

Nitpicking in File/SvgExport/SvgExport.js, var properties is meant to be a plain Object instead of an Array, isn’t it?

 214 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Adding dimensions to circles or arcs in a block Closed
100%
Task Description

In previous versions I was able to add a diametric dimension to an arc or circle that is part of a block in the overal drawing.
When I try this now, the pogram resonds “Entity is not an arc or circle” the radius dimension gives the same error.
This is unfortunate, because typically dimensions are on another layer in the overal drawing.

100%
Task Description

I noticed like this:

in a block pasted from the library, text would be under differently coloured lines, although it should be above them, and this does not look nice.

Drawing order inside of a block should not be changed by a paste operation, not?

 204 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow SVG PG export font styles Closed
100%
Task Description

Patch to PG export font styles “bold” and “italic” to SVG. (This only works when a file with the right style is loaded into QCAD, as QCAD will yank such style information upon saving.)

 203 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Save font styles bold and italic Closed
100%
Task Description

Font styles “bold” and “italic” are not saved to file.

According to http://docs.autodesk.com/ACD/2011/DEU/filesDXF/WS1a9193826455f5ff18cb41610ec0a2e719-7a4d.htm it is saved in dxf as group code 1071 and according to http://www.autodesk.com/techpubs/autocad/dxf/dxf2002.pdf page 20 its type is “Extended data 32-bit signed long”.

 202 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow SVG PG export font colors Closed

Task Description

White text gets exported as white text, while it should be exported as black text. Just like it is with lines. Attached patch makes text rendering use the conversion function that is already in the code base.

 200 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Patterned lines uncorrectly scaled in print preview Closed
100%
Task Description

In print preview lines are correctly scaled to stay the same width when printed, ie 0.25 or so mm thick. Print preview shows that very good.

But the round line-caps mess up the display, as in small scale the line-caps start to meet and make the line look like a continous one.

Print preview should not only correct line weight but also line patterns, so that the distance between dashes increase by scale.

 199 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Print preview scaling distorts model view Closed
100%
Task Description

- Draw a rectangle, say 100 x 100 (I use mm unit, but does it matter?)
1
- Turn on print preview
- Turn off print preview
- OK
2
- Turn on print preview
- Set scale 1/10
- Lines are thicker now, this is good
- Turn off print previw
- Lines stay thick in model view, should that be so?
3
- Set layer 0 to use dash as line-style
- Turn on print preview
- Looks OK
- Set scale 1/10
- Dashes hardly visible, looks almost like a continuous line

In the end of 2,3 a way to reset line width display in model view is to cancel scaling in print preview, ie. turn on print preview, set scale 1:1. I suppose this is a regression since TP1: model view always is unscaled.

The line-width scaling is quite accurate now: Draw two lines 10 mm apart. Set line-width 0.5mm. Set scale 1:20 and the lines exactly touch.

 198 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow SVG PG export dimensions Closed
100%
Task Description

SVG PG exporter, scaled or unscaled, currently only exports the labels of dimensions. Missing are

ticks, arrows, and lines of the dimension.

It will not be as simple as inkscape does it, wrap it all in a <def>.

 195 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow SVG PG export scale points Closed
100%
Task Description

Points are not scaled when PG exported to SVG:

Points as crosses are created eg. like this:

d=m 2.5,3 1,0 M 3,2.5 l 0,1

and in SVG look fine like that (scale 1/10):

d=m 2.95,3 0.1,0 M 3,2.95 3,3.05

stroke-width should be left unchanged.

 194 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow SVG PG export scale text Closed
100%
Task Description

Text scaling in PG SVG exporter is missing just two small additions: These attributes are not taken care of by now:

font-size, dy

Just use the current value times scale: eg 2.5 * 0.1 to have a scale of 1:10. Looks good here.

 192 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow SVG PG export stroke width should not scale Closed
100%
Task Description

When PG exporting to SVG, stroke-widths are scaled with the drawing, while they should not.

 191 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow SVG PG export text vertical and horizontal alignment Closed
100%
Task Description

QCAD offers horizontal and vertical alignment choices for text. This is not carried over to PG exported SVGs. Currently QCAD sets the “dy” attribute on text nodes in a way, such that any text in SVG will look like the QCAD vertical alignment was set to “Top” and the horizontal one to “Left”.

Naively one can just omit the “dy” attribute and in SVG this will look like the QCAD vertical alignment was set to “bottom”. At least for single line texts that should be good.

The horizontal alignments can be recreated in SVG with the “text-anchor” attribute for text nodes. The values “start”, “middle” and “end” correspond to the QCAD “left”, “center” and “right” choices.

 190 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow SVG PG export dimension labels alignment Closed
100%
Task Description

Dimension labels in QCAD are (always?) centered on the dimension line, while in exported SVGs the text starts from the center and extends into the writing direction. This can trivially be fixed by adding the attribute “text-anchor:middle” to the respective SVG “text” nodes.
