 337 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Polylines with arcs export to SVG as lines Closed
Task Description

If I create a closed polygon that include arcs or parts of circles, they export to SVG as straight lines.

If I explode the polyline, they export fine.

If I create a solid fill, those arcs export fine.

See attached DXF and SVG output.

This may be a duplicate bug, but my previous bug report vanished.

 336 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Tool bars with tools without icon Closed
Task Description

Some tool bars (e.g. ‘Block’ tool bar) contain tools without an icon (empty button).
Not all tools are available in tool bars.

 335 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Drawing preferences: Change font of dimensions Closed
7 Task Description

Configure font used for dimensions.

 334 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium SVG Export Polygons, arcs converted to straight lines. Closed
Task Description

When exporting a drawing to SVG, polygons containing arcs (trimmed circles in this case) are converted to straight lines. If the polygon is exploded first, then it exports correctly. Of course, this isn’t useful if closed polygons are required for the program using the SVG file. Solid hatch fills export correctly. See attached DXF and corresponding SVG export.

 333 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Add layer: new layer should be active one Closed

 332 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Modify - divide should remain active after one use Closed
Task Description

1. When selecting the Scissors function, it deactivates after the cut is done. One can therefore not continuously select lines and cut it at the selected point. Each time the function has to be activated from the start.

 331 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Snap buttons doubled Closed
Task Description

1. For some reason on the Window machine, the snap toolbar buttons are doubled for all functions. I therefore have two buttons for each type of snap and cannot access the bottom snaps unless I undoc the toolbar.

For some reason, this is still fine in the Linux Beta 3. Single buttons like always.

 324 ECMAScriptFeature RequestLow SVG export depends on GUI Closed
Task Description

SvgExporter.js uses PrintPreview to parse the scale string, and therefore depends on the qt GUI part. That should not make maintenance harder to call RMath directly there? Results seem to match from a first look.

 323 ECMAScriptFeature RequestLow Exceptions in headless scripts Closed
Task Description

The capability of running headless, ie. without GUI, is a very welcome addition to QCAD. I suggest one more improvement:

When an exception occurs in a script (running from autostart) and no-gui was opted for on the command line, QCAD should not try to bring up the debugger ever (regardless of any preferences), but print the message of the exception and possibly a backtrace instead.

Otherwise all errors will produce the same message…

 322 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Line type scaling with print scale factor Closed
Task Description

In QCAD 2, line type patterns are scaled according to the print preview drawing scale, also in model space.
This is not the case in QCAD 3 and possibly needs a different solution.

Possible solutions:

  • two different LTSCALEs for model space and print preview
  • same behavior as QCAD 2

CAD Tool Bar: Back button should go back one menu. Possibly use two buttons, one to go back to the previous tool bar, one to go back to the main tool bar.

 319 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Prints as though A4 even though I change paper size in  ...Closed
Task Description

This continues a problem that occurred in Qcad 2.2/OpenSuse 11.1:

1. The default paper size is always A4. (minor, but annoying)

2. Here is the serious problem: When I change the paper size to, for example tabloid, in File/Drawing Preferences/Page and in Print/Properties, the print job prints as though it were A4. This occurs unless I first go to Yast or Control Center and (as superuser) change the default page size. Other programs (such as Open Office) don’t require this.

The printer is an HP deskjet 9800, and the problem occurs with either CUPS or hplip printing.

Hello. My question is: can I run my script under Linux QCAD using Linux command prompt.
Something like this. Print in terminal: “./qcad myscript.qs” And can the script executing without QCAD GUI? I need to make my drawing by printing specific command in linux command prompt without using GUI. So after script end his work I want to have my drawing at destination directory.

Thank you.

Then when I close the dfx file and try to reopen it the second time, QC will not open the file and a dialog box reads “Cannot open file, please check your access rights, the file format and the file extension”

 300 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dashed lines in SVG PG export Closed
Task Description

Chat from  FS#194  singled out, so that can be closed.

Dash patterns in BETA2 are very much out of proportion. BETA2 always PG exports 1:1 and only scales strokes so that in the final rendering they match what a technical drawing would show. As dash patterns depend on stroke, both current stroke and final scale have to be brought in accord.

The patch below also restores the alignment of dashes, so that dashed lines do not end in a gap, at least in most occasions.

 290 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Arrow on Leaders do not scale  Closed
Task Description

I consider this a bug or at least poor software design.

When I edit the drawing preferences and change the arrow size (under the Dimensions tab), the arrows of my dimensions change as expected, but those of the leaders to not change.

No drawing preference exists to adjust the leaders separately, and scaling a leader does not scale its arrow. I currently must delete my leaders and redraw them completely to change the arrow size. Very inconvenient.

P.S. I’m using QCad (Community Edition) and didn’t see that version in your list. Does it have another name?
