0%
Task Description

In Print Preview the movable display of the printing area (white) is displayed to small which makes a multi page arrangement very difficult. You want not notice the wrong size when you print only one page but 10 pages vertical in a row will show the effect clearly. I checked a metric (mm) and an imperial (inch) unit. The deviation in Imperial is clearer than in Metric.

Hi Andrew

In QcadCAM when using the new Themes or User Created Themes the Layer and Block Tabs Appear to be reversed in East and West Positions.
I have discussed this with forum user PeteVick and he cannot reproduce this behavior in Qcad Pro... he suggested submitting this bug report.
I didn’t notice this until he pointed it out and don’t expect it to be high on your list of things to do..

Best Regards

2245QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowBold fonted text appears regular sized - v 3.26.2Assigned
0%
Task Description

Text that has been applied to a drawing with the ‘bold’ attribute sometimes appears as regular, un-bolded, text. When increasing the viewing magnification one will see the text adopt the bold attribute, but at smaller sizes the text appears without the bold. This can be confusing causing the draftsman to double-check whether the text had the bold attribute.

Current version: 3.26.2

Previous version: 3.22.1 (note: in this version, bolded text appeared bold at all viewing magnifications.)

 2244 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Add poyline segment midpoint to 'Store Positions' Closed

1 Task Description

Andrew,

Besides that Misc .. Information .. ‘Store Positions’ - stores the startpoint of each polyline
- or stores all nodes of each polyline (With: InfoStorePositions/PolylineNodes = true)
Refering to https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=6300

I somethimes require the midpoints of the line and arc segments as spline controlpoints
+ the start and the endpoint when geometrical open.

Could that be made an undocumented preference too?

2242QCAD (main)SuggestionLowBill of MaterialsAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

It would be a very interesting feature to add to future versions.

I also use AutoCAD Mechanical 2012 and the BOM is synced with every balloon on the drawing. Making it easy to edit.

The core BOM accepts formula fields and we can easily calculate the mass of a part, with some Ifs and math.

The BOM that is shown in the actual drawing is more simplistic, and has just Part number, Quantity, Mass and the Description. But it’s related to the “core BOM”.

It’s a very interesting thing! It would be great on QCad.

100%
1 Task Description

I just updated my QCAD to 3.26.2.0 (3.26.2) version and lost the hability to edit block attributes of my sheet or in any other block.

I tried to save as the drawing and the problem persists.

When I open the block, the attribute is there and is all set in the Specific Properties, but when I exit to the Model Space to edit the Attribute text, the created attributes don’t appear on Specific Properties tab.

The use of block attributes in sheets, balloon or any block that contains text is very necessary.

When dimensioning this particular line in this position I get an Aligned Dimension of 868.6059.

 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?

During saving file I’m getting information “Invalid Symbol Table name error”. Problem is already known so i tried to follow the instructions given to other users by you. I’ve tried to change spaces to _ symbol in the layers names or deleting polish specific letters but there was no change. I was able to find out that the problem is related only to four layers named: A_ciany... When I delete these layers I’m able to save file without error message. Can you tell me what’s wrong in these layers? I’ve tried to change names of these layers but problem still exists. Best regards.

 2225 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low Filenames containing an ampersand do not render correct ...Closed
100%
Task Description

If a file is opened whose filename contains an ampersand, the filename will be rendered correctly in the application titlebar, but the tab bar and the Window menu will not display the ampersand.

If, however, the ‘alt’ key is pressed, the ampersand will result in an underscore appearing beneath the character immediately following it in the filename string. This applies both to the titlebar and the Window menu.

Interestingly, this can be “exploited” by a user to quickly switch between tabs by pressing ‘alt’ and the character which follows the ampersand simultaneously. Likewise, a user can swap between windows using the Window menu in a similar fashion, by first pressing Alt+W, then Alt and the same key as before.

The expected result is that the ampersand is rendered, the underscore is not rendered, and the ‘alt’ key shortcuts don’t work.

It would appear that this is a simple case of failing to properly escape the ampersand in filenames before passing the filename string to various Qt methods.

Can you update addSimpleText() as Text.Width is fixed =100

What is the noTextWidth value?

As far as I can detect ...
PrintPreviewImplPro.prototype.addDecorations uses value 1.
CrankWheel.js uses value 1.
ExText.prototype.beginEvent uses value 2.
ExDrawFonts.prototype.beginEvent uses value 1.
Counter.prototype.getOperation uses QCAD.ini or default zero.
TextAlong.prototype.getTextData usses the width of the textData from the dialog.

0%
1 Task Description

Hello dear CAM developers!

I need to use the same tool at different spindle speed in a single machining file.
I would deeply appreciate if you could add a Spindle Speed edit field in the CAM Profile Toolpath edit window in order that each Toolpath can have its own Spindle Speed value (same as you did for Feed Rate and Plunge Rate)

FYI, the tool on my concern is a laser who’s power is driven by the Spindle Speed PWM signal.
I need to be able to do both engraving and cutting in a single file.
Alas! this laser tool is defined with a fix and unique number (99).
Therefore I cannot define different laser tools with different speeds.

Many thanks
Best regards.

QCAD Professional
Win7 32bit wininstaller
Version: 3.25.2.13 (3.25.2.13)

Revision: cad2d36
Qt Version: 5.13.2

Compiler: Unknown

Andrew,

Break out Manual (B2) on Arc and open Polyline results
seems to depend on the breakpoint picking order.

A segment is broken out when the picking order is in the entity orientation.
The intended behavior.

That differs when the picking order is opposite the entity orientation.
One would expect that the picking order matters when removing
a segment between the picked points.

Example file included

Noticed while merging code to PolyLineBreakSymbol.js
https://github.com/qcad/qcad/blob/master/scripts/Misc/MiscDraw/PolyLineBreakSymbol/PolyLineBreakSymbol.js Line 300-312 orders cut points on distance from start.
Otherwise, the results where inconsistent.

CVH
