564QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSettings organisation in levelAssigned
0%
Task Description

As an old professional “documentation writer and user inteface designer” but IMHO, I’m not convinced that the “Application preferences” are correctly organised for ease of understanding and using them.
These settings are organised in 2 levels. Some of the first levels have their own settings (e.g. “Graphics view”) while most others don’t (e.g. “Load/save”). May I humbly ;-) suggest some consistency rules :
- no sub-level if there is only one subject
- no items on main level if there are already 1 or more sub-level(s).
For instance :
- sub-level “Default Dimension settings” under “Dimension” is the only sub-level : then move these items under main level “Dimension” and suppress the sub-level ;
- the items under “Graphics view” main level (with several sub-levels)could be in a sub-level named “General” ;
Actually, “Graphics view” main level is the only one which has both its own items and sub-levels ;-))) ?

 563 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Hatches and colors transformed in Q3 Closed
100%
Task Description

To check compatibility for the same .dxf drawing prepared with Q2, I prepared 2 copies, one with a “_Q2” suffix and the other with “_Q3”. I managed to keep an operational Q2 system on the same Win7-HomeEditionPremium-64bits PC. As you can guess, I opened each copy with the relevant QCAD version.

In each version, I selected the same hatch layer and list here their properties along with a hardcopy of a display of a similar part of the hatched area, with blue lines showing the differences in hatching, apparently the density.
Q2 : Solid:False, Scale:3.00, Angle:0, Name:ar-brelm ; the color is described in its panel as 20,255,255 and 255,85,0 (left colum first from top to bottom).
Q3 : all identical values but Scale:0.78189.

Another comparison with a global view of the same drawing. Just notice how the hatching in the areas at the bottom are different (red lines). Also, I noticed that increasing the zoom let the hatching appear in the Q3 version instaed of the grey homogenous color, but the hatching in Q3 remains more dense than in the Q2 version.
Q2 : Solid:False, Scale:1.00, Angle:0, Name:ar-conc : color is a standard grey (0,0,128 & 128,128,128)
Q3 : Solid:False, Scale:0.246063, Angle:0, Name:AR-CONC : color is qualified as “custom” even with the same values.
Both have “centimeter” as drawing units.

Then I opened another Q2 drawing with Q3. I elected to hide all layers then to show all of them. And the color hatching of some aras were then modified. See 3rd picture with all black areas. (Just changing the layers shown or hidden was enough to not allow to close the drawing without a save...).

Than you for your attention or letting me know which setting can correct the differences.

 562 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Layer "Black/White" color from Qcad2 not kept in v3 Closed
100%
Task Description

I made several drawings for my building renovation project, using Qcad Pro v2.2.2.

I’m used to have a white background and selected adequate colors for my layers : quotations in black or blue, legends in black too etc. When I started QCAD 3rc5, I choose white background in the 1st application launch startup screen.

OK, the background is white. But now I see that ALL “black” items are de facto in white, making them hard to read as you can believe.

Why are the colors I choose for my layers not kept in this QCAD 3 ? I remember ;-) that in v2, one of the standard color choices was “Black/white” ; I assumed the actual choice of black or white was somehow related to the then selected background.

Is there a kind of a setting or a miracle procedure to allocate all previous “Black/White” color to pure black ? Or to add a provision in the startup screen to select which Black or White color to assign to the previous “Black/White” color.

I’m facing a hard choice :
- use a non-white background ? Pale-blue could be nice ... but I would still be forced to change my ex-black-now-white layers color. Black or dark background is not recommended in view of eye strain : should I be back to old monochrome VDU ? Printed paper are easier to read with black text on white paper, aren’t they ?
- modify manually all layers which were changed “à l’insu de mon plein gré” from black to white, and in all my drawings ? Not enough time, sure !

 561 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dropdown list with black lines Closed
100%
Task Description

Hello,
Just installed Q3rc5 with Win7.64 bits.French. To report bugs, I wanted to change my interface user language from French to English.
Using menu “Edit” =⇒ “Application preferences” =⇒ “Language settings” =⇒ “Language”, I notice that the dropdown list (combo box) is hard to decipher as all lines are with black text on a black background. Only the current value is shown with white text on a blue background.

Moving the cursor up and down reveals the other values. After navigating in the list, all values can be read. Going to another item in the Settings and then back to the Language settings : all lines can be read.
Closing the setting and opening it again, the same dropdown list has again all entries in black but the current selected value in blue.

NB: Searches for “dropdown”, “combo”, “selection” etc returned no related task.

Hi,
First of all, thanks for this wonderful product !

My issue : when I modify (at file level) some parameters like the number of decimals in cotations, or the linethikness of a calc, these modifications are lost after saving and reopening the dxf. It comes back to the default values. It is not the case for the colors for instance.

At your disposal for other informations.

 556 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Can't change entity's layer by double-click Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,

One thing not in the v3 (but in the v2) is the ability to assign a layer to an entity by double click on the layer name (in the layers list)

On V 2 :
1 - Select entity
2 - Double click on the layer’s name

> then le entity is in this layer

On V 3 :
1 - Select entity
2 - Double click on the layer’s name

> nothing change

It’s useful to change it by this way, please make it possible in v3.

Task Description

Eine Zählfunktion die erfasst wie oft ein Block in einer Zeichnung vorhanden ist.

Hintergrund ist das es damit eine Unterstützung gäbe die das erstellen von Stücklisten etc. erleichtert würde.

Die Anzahl der Blöcke könnte z.B in der Block List eingeblendet werden wie z.B.: “Schraube M6x40 (17x)” oder auch in einer extra Text Liste.
Zudem könnten so auch nicht (oder nicht mehr) benutze Blöcke ermittelt werden wie z.B. “Schraube M6x20 (0x)” welche dann aus der Zeichnung entfernt werden könnten.

Ziehe ich mit der Maus eine normale Auswahlbox kann ich Elemente markieren.
Möchte ich einzelne Bereiche wieder herausnehmen muss ich alle Elemente einzeln anklicken (mit gedrückter Shift Taste).
Ich kann zwar dies komfortabler gestalten mit der Select → (De -) Select Contour Funktion welche aber erst über das Menue aufgerufen werden muss.

So wie ich einzelne Elemente mit der Maus auswählen und mit der Shift-Maus Funktion deselektieren kann wäre es schön wenn die Shift Taste auch bei Auswahlbereichen direkt zum deselektieren eingesetzt werden könnte.

my guess, that the problem is that whole file is encoded as ANSI:

$DWGCODEPAGE

but layer names are coded as UTF-8.
so additional converting ANSI→UTF-8 is demanded

 540 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low "pa" ("parallel") keycode triggers wrong action Closed
100%
Task Description

In the latest QCAD Community Edition source code (2.0.5.0-1-community), the wrong action is triggered for the “pa” keycode. Specifically, it triggers the basic draw line command. Here is the relevant code from qcadcmd/src/rs_commands.cpp, in RS_Commands::keycodeToAction:

  } else if (c==tr("li", "line")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;
  } else if (c==tr("pa", "parallel")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;

I believe this should instead be:

  } else if (c==tr("li", "line")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;
  } else if (c==tr("pa", "parallel")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLineParallel;

Dear Sir,
I have noticed that in QCAD 3 rc4 it is not possible to open and edit font files.

I kindly ask the designers to consider enabling this capability again.
Thank you!

2.In ubuntu 11.10 I first uninstalled RC2 then installed RC4. QCAD program runs ok but this time when I try to open up the browser (not a new folder)I get an error message stating that I do not have permissions to open the first file (vehicle -I think!)in RC2?
