 2320 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Viewport: text misplaced if viewport is set to not plot ...Closed
100%
Task Description

When toggling the plotability of the viewport layer, the Arial fonts inside the viewport when viewing the paperspace disappear or move when plotability is turned off. This does not occur for the CAD Standard font, and it does not happen with text that is not brought in via a viewport, such as from a block or added directly into paperspace. I have attached a DXF and a video file that shows the odd behavior.

I am using QCAD 3.27.0 and Win10 Pro.

Task Description

Please refer to topic: https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=8921

- Launch QCAD-Pro 3.26.4.13, Status Bar is off by default
- Set menu View > Status Bar on
- The Status Bar is showed but the menu options remains unchecked
- Quit QCAD-Pro
- At launch QCAD-Pro opens with the Status Bar toggled off
- Set View > Status Bar on (or issue GS from command line)
- At the next launch the Status Bar is off

Note: the preference StatusBar in the .ini file has the value “false” when it should be “true”. Changing the value manually to “true” makes the Status Bar appear just for the next launch of QCAD then the preference is reset to “false” by QCAD.

- Deleted the .ini file, same behavior
- Changed user, same behavior

 2311 ECMAScriptBug ReportLow Odd self-intersection point for spline shapes Closed
100%
Task Description

Andrew,

Encountered with snapshot 3.26.4.9
On both a 32bit win7 and a Linux machine.
But probably not related to version nor OS.

The calculated area centroid position for a self-intersecting shape is invalid.
Therefor polylines and splines are checked for their self intersection nature.
Polylines with line segments require a tolerance of 1e-6.
For polylines with arc segments there is no easy to formulate value.
Reverted to something less strict than the arc connect tolerance: 1.1e-3
Refer to: https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=8526&p=34056#p33694

RSpline.getSelfIntersectionPoints() has no tolerance value.

Some perfect valid spline shapes fail this test.
Not related to the XP spline approx tolerance preference.
Related to orientation, try the failing shape when reversed in situ.
Related to their position in the plane, see translated examples.

Reproducible with control point splines.
Reproducible when rotating the shape.
Such failing closed splines can be hatched and an area centroid is returned.

Regards,
CVH

2307QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowTools to create dogbones or corner overcut Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

The inside corners of profile tool paths have rounded inside corners. This occurs because the rounded outside the bit cannot make it all the way into the corner of the feature. Think of tracing the inside wall of a cardboard box with a can of soup. The can makes direct contact with the box walls, but its
round shape is unable to completely fit into the tight corners— there’s always a gap.

In a dog-bone overcut (see the figure in attachment), the inside profile corner is enlarged into a semicircle, allowing the sharp edges of the mating piece to slide through without interference.

When a dog bone is applied to the inside corners, as shown in the second figure in the attachment, the joints fit together nicely!

The following website explains what should be implemented More elegant CNC dogbones

There are two ways to implement this tool. Either you modify the original design (as implemented in Fusion 360) or you can do it at the moment you define the tool path (Estlcam allows you to do this for example). See the feature Corner overcut, on Estlcam website

 2305 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Invisible XLine under visible XLine may prevent selecti ...Closed
100%
Task Description

To reproduce:

1. File – New
2. Create a new layer (layer 1)
3. Draw an horizontal infinity line
4. Duplicate “layer 1” (layer 1 Copy)
5. Hide “layer 1 Copy” 6. Try to select the line in “layer 1”

What happens: It’s not possible to select the line in the visible layer (layer 1) if the line is present in the duplicated layer (layer 1 Copy) and that layer is either hidden or locked.

Expected: It should be possible to select the line, as the overlapping line in the other layer is hidden/locked .

Andrew,

With an CW ellipse Arc > 180° the GUI method info Arc/Circle/Ellipse (IC) in segment mode throws an exception:
Uncaught exception at :scripts/Information/InfoArcCircleArea/InfoArcCircleArea.js:210: ReferenceError: Can’t find variable: remainSectorArea

Rather a complex way to get the area of an ellipse arc segment.

There: area = majorR * minorR / 2 * (sweep - Math.sin(sweep)).
- where majorR, minorR & sweep can simply be sourced from the ellipse arc shape/entity.
- where the area is signed ... +CCW, -CW

About identical as for an arc segment.

For an (ellipse) arc sector one would only need to add/subtract
the area of triangle |StartP-CenterP-EndP|

Andrew,

In the attached dxf:
Besides that it is clear that duplicate vectors are not filtered ...
Where a segment is crossing in another node a non valid node is returned as self-intersection point.
Seems to be unrelated to CW/CCW or tolerance.

Where 2 nodes coexists 4 duplicate vectors are returned.

2301QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRotate preview on/offAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi,

I believe prior QCAD version 3.22.0.0 there was no rotating preview. The rotating preview shows the outcome regarding to the chosen center point. I know that it is also common for move/copy. However, for me it is very confusing and difficult to chose the correct center point for a rotation if I’m constantly been distracted by the most of the time overlapping preview of my selection. This said if the drawing is very detailed I have to zoom in extremely to be able to snap to the right entity. That wouldn’t be necessary without the preview. Additional rotate a large drawing selections will compromise the performance - CPU is going like crazy.

It would be nice to have an option to turn this preview on/off.

I’m used to have persistant selection while drawing (Application Preferences > Graphics View:Appearance > Selection), but I’m missing deselection of all objects with ESC key. I have seen the option to deselect with right key, but it’s nice to have right key for context menu.

Currently ESC key cancels current active command, but would be nice if there is no command active to also deselect all features by default.

2293QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowinsert attributes into a point elementAssigned

1 Task Description

Would it be possible to extend the tool for importing points with a label so that when importing points into the drawing (as it is now), the attributes of the point are taken from the csv file and written to the point’s own properties? See attachment. This would extend the functionality of the tool and I assume that it would also lay the foundation for the possible re-export of such points from the drawing to a csv file, including all the details.

 2292 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Override Dimension Precision for Individual dimensions Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Some drawings, particularly with a lot of angles, results in a very decimal number.

It would be great to have the option to change the precision of individual dimensions when necessary.

Currently, the precision is universal in the drawing.

What I’m currently doing is leave the precision to zero decimal cases and manually inserting decimals when needed, but it results in a dimension with no “Auto” label, that may result in wrong dimensions on the workflow, especially when editing the project. The dimension labeled manually will not change, so it can cause errors.

Task Description

I use CTRL + I to pull up drawing preferences. Upon changing the dimension settings quickly and closing it normally by pressing enter it closes. But if i go to the next tab (drawing tab) then press enter to load it up quickly instead of pressing CTRL + I. Upon changing the dimensions settings and pressing enter to close it, it won’t close but instead flash and i have to keep pressing enter and eventually it closes.

I think this is a bug.

2289QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowVertical Line Tool stops accepting inputAssigned
0%
Task Description

When using the vertical line tool, you can enter a length value in the options toolbar, then place the line. If you want to change the length, you just need to enter a new value and the length field will update. However, there seem to be cases where after 10-20 entries, the focus goes off the length field in the options toolbar, requiring the user to bring focus back to continue. I could not seem to duplicate this behavior with the horizontal line tool.

2287QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery LowEvaluate draw order for preference "Prevent white-on-wh...Assigned
0%
Task Description

The Application Preference setting “Graphics View - Appearance - Prevent white-on-white/black-on-black display” seems to be a global setting that doesn’t take the draw order into account. For example: With the setting enabled, it prevents creating a white hatch of a higher draw order on top of a larger, colored hatch with lower draw order (background). The preference does not seem to evaluate if the object is truly drawn as “white-on-white”.

With the preference enabled, setting the object color as “white” will set the “white” color label, but the object color actually stays black. Its hard to determine why it happens in that case.

Is it possible to let the global preference setting be applied to objects after evaluation of the draw order, and determine if the object actually is a true case of white-on-white?

My workaround: Disable the preference setting (I think it is default = on), and only enable it for ad-hoc checks of hidden and overlooked objects.

2284QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowZooming in & out causes grid/snap scale value change in...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

I have set the grid/snap value to X=.0625 Y=.0625 on all 4 viewports.
When zooming in and out the grid/snap scale changes from .0625 to 3.90625. at this point the grid/snap points differ,
This causes a variation in the grid/snap reference points lending to drawing errors.

example
When I use the grid settings defaults .01, when zooming in and out, the grid/snap scaling doesn’t seem to have this issue.
Other values do, See below.

set value first zoom second zoom next zoom

	point		point		point ...	

0.01 0.1 1.0 10.0 ...
0.02 0.04 0.4 4.0 ...

0.0254 0.64516 6.4516 64.516 ...

Why is there a squaring of the original set value? Which then becomes a new zoomed grid/snap value?

 2283 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Add a "Select Similar " command Closed
100%
1 Task Description

As a heavy mechanical drawings user, it would help a lot to have an option to select similar entities while working on QCAD.

In the flow of the work, sometimes I need to make some changes in all similar entities of the drawing.

The Select Similar works selecting all the same items with the same layer on the drawing.

Example:

I have a drawing for other company and I have to make a massive layer changing to my own layers.

I select a line and circles with a box selection, activate the Select Similar command and the QCAD instantly selects all lines and circles(no matter length) with that same layer. I can then change the layer of all of them instantly.

Or if I have a peace with a lot of circles, that aren’t in a block, in one time I want to change the layer or diameter of all circles in a certain part of the drawing.

I select the circle and activate the Select Similar command, the QCAD automatically selects all circles with the same layer and I deselect the circles that I don’t want with a box desselection and change the layers of them, or the diameter via properties.. and etc.

There is a workaround, that would be working with activating or deactivating layers, but the select similar would be a faster shortcut.

Thanks Andrew and team!

2282QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd a "Save As" command while editing blocks in placeAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

As a heavy mechanical drawings user, it would help a lot to have an option to exit a block saving as a new name and making it a new entity from that time ahead.

Example: if a have a lot of screws, one of then is behind another peace and need the to have some lines changed to hidden style lines, in the flow of the work is great if I edit that screw in place and when exiting have the option to save as a new block, to don’t mess with other entities of the same block that I don’t want to change. Yes, there is a workaround that is duplicate and rename the block prior to the editing, but a save as seems to work easier.

Thanks Andrew and team!

Hello, I am not sure if this is a bug or if I use it wrong way. But when I create block with two identical block attributes everything look ok. I Can insert it to drawing, set the value (both will change). But when I use “Synchronize attribute (UY)”, only one will stay. It would be fine if both would stay. But I understand that you probably use tag as identification.

Task Description

Version QCAD 3.26.4.7 / Windows x86_64

Existing drawing:

1. e.g. flange.dxf loads with no fills (solid hatch) for arrows,
2. New dimension are also without arrow fills.
3. This existing drawing has Text above line! Setting Drawing Preferences / Dim to “Horizontal text labels” will alter Text to be Horizontal BUT also open a gap for the text which is a separate setting (Text above dimension Line). Undo doesn’t works on this properly - used multiple times will even change the dim color which wasn’t changed in this operation.

New drawing:

1. Same test scenario - same issue.
2. Dim settings = Horizontal text Labels ticked, Text above dimension Line ticked produces a dim horizontal orientated with a gap instead to put the text above the line

Trimming With AX slows down with many text entities.
Seeing the same lagging with D2 on Circle entities.

Also seen on Windows 10 Pro 3.26.4.0
Forum topic: https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=8729

Attached files:
TrimAuto_1.dxf ... 11 entities ... trimming instantaneous
TrimAuto_2.dxf ... 11 entities + 1936 LINES ... rather instantaneous
TrimAuto_3.dxf ... 11 entities + 1936 ARCS ... less than 1 second
TrimAuto_4.dxf ... 11 entities + 121 TEXT ... over 3 or 4 seconds
Slower for larger Arc / Circle

The questions here are:
Should AX trim at text entities?
Can this be optional?

 2276 QCAD (main)SuggestionVery Low Include 'polylines' & 'splines' in messages of Polyline ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Polyline from segments (OG):

The StatusTip reads:
“Create polyline from existing, connected line and arc segments”.

The CommandPrompt and LeftMouseTip both read:
“Choose line or arc segment or polyline”.

The tool let us pick 4 types of entities:
... A line, an arc, a polyline and also a spline entity.

If the picked entity is not one of these 4 types we get the warning message:
“Entity is not a line, arc or polyline.”

The tool prepends/appends 4 types of entities:
line, arc and polyline entities and also spline entities approximated by arcs.

Wouldn’t it be more appropriate if the tool mention all 4 types?

e.g.
StatusTip:
“Create polyline from existing, connected lines, arcs, polylines and splines”

CommandPrompt, LeftMouseTip:
“Choose line or arc segment or polyline or spline”

Warning:
“Entity is not a line, arc, polyline or spline.”

2272QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSupport unit "US survey foot"Assigned
0%
Task Description

In the US, it is (unfortunately) still common to use US survey foot. It seems at least some DXF applications/libraries support this unit as a $INSUNITS value, some references:

There are two issues regarding this with QCAD:

  1. If you open a document with $INSUNITS being 21, it’s reset to 0 (unitless/unspecified) when saved again, even when not changing anything.
  2. It is not possible to select these units in the GUI.

I don’t know about standardization of these values, but my hope is that it’s at least possible to preserve the unit in an existing drawing. Given that this unit is supposed to be obsolete in some years, it might seem less important, but due to this transition, it might get even more important to be able to distinguish between units. Thanks!
