1974QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowFile > Print Preview: Cannot move paper in new drawingUnconfirmed
0%
Task Description

Yesterday I set up a Windows 64 bit install of QCAD Pro which shows the same bug I have been seeing for a while in the Community linux git repo.

Create a new drawing and then go to “Print preview”. Enable “Move paper postion”, the cursor changes to the hand icon, but the paper position is unable to be moved. Only by saving the drawing, exiting the program, restarting and reopening the drawing, will the “Move paper postion” function correctly.

Affected versions tested:

Windows 64bit installer download, as of yesterday.
Linux 64bit build from git, about 20minutes ago.

For what it’s worth, this bug is not present in this previous git checkout:

I suggest that if dwg2pdf have an new options that can convert all the blocks to pdf.

Task Description

QCAD Professional 3.23.0 is using en_US keyboard layout although I have a Finnish keyboard on Fedora 29. I have not found a way, how to chance the keyboard definition. In Fedora repositories there is QCAD Community Edition 3.22.1, and keyboard definitions there are working OK. Keyboard layout is following Gnu desktop keyboard selection and can be changed on the fly. Wrong keyboard layout makes working very hard, because almost all special keys are in different places, like colon, semicolon, plus, minus, parentheses, slash etc.

1936QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowver 3.23 not saving font informationAssigned
0%
Task Description

The attached file is not saving font preference.
All fonts on the online layer are reported as the standard font. If I highlight one or all of the text entities and change the font to something like Yu gothic light, the property page reports yu gothic light and the screen reflects the changed font.
If I save, close and reload, the fonts for all text is again “standard”.

So then I try to enter new text via the “A” draw text command icon. I select “Broadway.ttf” as the main font in the text entry dialog.
One word “Broadway” is entered as the text. it appears on the upper left of the screen as expected and the font name is Broadway in the property editor. If I look at the dxf file source there is a whole bunch of text styles.
I save and close the file, and then open it again. Now the word Broadway has changed to font name “standard” in the property editor and is very definitely not the Broadway.ttf font.

I am not the originator of the file, I am just trying to change the font. If I start a new file and enter new text the font saves just fine, so I am thinking it is a setting somewhere, but I am unable to find it.

We (me and my customers) use these files for engraving so exact font is critical.

1934QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDiametric text - overlaidAssigned
0%
Task Description

Diametric text is always placed above a horizontal measurement.

I often want to indicate both the inside and outside diameter of an object e.g. a wheel using diametric text. The text is overlaid and illegible.

To avoid text overlapping, I use Horizontal Aligned because I can control the position of the text to avoid illegible text.

A better method would be to alternate the placement of diametric text (alternatively) above and below a measurement so that in the majority of cases an overlap would be avoided.

Similarly for a vertical measurement, the text is overlaid and illegible.

When the angle is almost vertical, the angle controls the side the text appears however it also reverses the direction of the text (which is logical but not attractive).

Kind regards
Simon

Task Description

In the Advance SVG Export dialog, when I edit the filename to be different than the default file that already exists and then clear the checkbox for “Overwrite existing file without asking” just to make sure that I haven’t already created a file with the modified name as well, then I get a popup warning that the export would overwrite the default filename, not the name as edited. In other words, the overwrite check ignored the fact that I edited the filename.

Some explicitly don’t and test their actions with isNull().

As these serve a purpose in some processes, trails of them can be part of the results.
For some users Null / Null-lenght are meaningfull, for other users these produce errors down the line.
In a few cases its a desirable feature eg. controlpoint spline.
(Allthough there are no Null props involved with equal successively controlpoints)

Many problem post on the forum are related to Null - Zero and so on.

In some cases it can’t be undone by re-editing the drawing.
