The square symbol offered as symbol in DIM label is the only symbol which doesn’t adopt the layer color.

 2096 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow trim fail between line and arc Closed
100%
Task Description

Trim, or round do not work between the green line and the magenta arc. The line properties do not report the length correctly.

Info - distance reports the distance between the end point of the magenta arc and the start point of the red arc as .1534. the Property editor reports the green line length as .257.

If the length of the green line is edited to .5 inches then trim and round work properly, and the green line length is reported properly. The other line/arc intersections have been edited in this manner.

I can’t print from Q-cad in Win 10 latest update. Q-cad says it has sent it to the printer but does not print.
To make it work I print to a PDF file then send it to the printer. I was able to print prior to the update.

I have checked and rechecked the settings in Q-cad as well as my Firewall and printer. All other programs print ok.

I tried printing from my Win 7 computer and all works fine.

2091QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowToggle redrawing of hatches Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Because modifying hatches have lag issues I’d like to propose a toggle that turns of the redrawing/rendering of the hatch. Especially while modifying the hatch.

The hatches always have a boundary that can be worked with right? So when we move or stretch the hatch we can still see the boundary and its handles to perform all the actions.

This could be a new view mode that turns of the view of the interior/pattern of the hatch but leave the boundary of the hatch.
Or the draft mode can be extended to include simplified hatches while modifying.

Also see the discussion

 2086 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Font formatting in text dialog Closed

Task Description

QCadPro (snapshot, but can be reproduced with 3.24.3 as well)

OS: MacOS 10.14.6
Version: 3.24.3.8 (3.24.3.8)
Build Date: Jun 3 2020
Revision: 828df3a
Qt Version: 5.13.2
Architecture: x86_64
Compiler: Clang 10.0.0

To reproduce:
1. Add some text to a drawing
2. Double click on the text to open the text-edit dialogue
3. Select all text, change font, press OK

Expected behavior: The font has been updated

Actual behavior: The font seems to visually change in the edit box but as soon as you press OK to close the dialogue the text on the drawing is not changed. Viewing the text with the font information (via properties) it can be seen that the embedded font information has not been updated.

Workaround:
- Select text and edit the properties

100%
Task Description

QCadPro - MacOS Mojave (10.14.6)

Version: 3.24.3.0 (3.24.3)
Build Date: Mar 16 2020
Revision: 6e718a8
Qt Version: 5.13.2
Architecture: x86_64
Compiler: Clang 10.0.0

In the attached .dxf file is a simple drawing (a wooden deck). In the layout space (of A3 size) there are two viewports (one of the frames and one with the decking).

In the left viewport a spurious enlarged part of the block “stolpe” (eng. column) has appeared in the exported PDF (not visible in either the layout nor the model space). See attached .PDF where it is clearly visible.

So it seems that the interaction of blocks with viewport triggers a bug.

The new QCAD feature “dimension label color” will change the label color at existing drawings to “Custom”.

100%
Task Description

https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=7254

It seems to be an accuracy problem.
The original hatch boundaries are defined from 732 single entities.
These interconnect with an accuracy better then 1e-10 except for a gap of 0.000814 in two places.

Creating a Hatch of these entities with TA-HA is rather slow but succesfull.
After Save-Close-Open the Hatch may look different or may even be missing (=Null).

Suspected is that:
The recreation off the Hatch on load uses some other accuracy setting.
The outer boundary is not found and only some inner ones are considered as outer.

But that explains not why it looks fine after initial creation.
Nor that the outcome of a retry may vary.

CVH

 2075 QCAD (main)SuggestionLow Draw order bug after insert bit map Closed
100%
Task Description

First post, so please excuse if I missed some forum rules etc...

I insert bit maps and trace over them to create DXF files for laser cutting burnout templates. If the edge of the bit map is coincident with a line I have drawn, it is not possible to select the line for offsetting, trimming etc. This is regardless of the draw order or handle number. It seems to happen most if the edge of the image and line are coincident with the X or Y origin. I also use fairly fat lines to make it easy to see. My default line width is 1mm. Not sure if that affects selection or not, but fatter lines don’t help the issue at hand.

Steps to reproduce...
insert bitmap at 0,0
draw horizontal and vertical lines starting at 0,0. (my lines are usually longer than the edges of the bitmap.
try to select one of the lines for offsetting. (Select the line in the area of the bitmap. There is no problem selecting the line where it extends past the edge of the bitmap.)

It does not matter if I insert the bitmap first and then draw lines, or draw lines first, insert bitmap and then change the draw order so the lines are on top. It is also not consistent on which axis is affected. It is usually both X & Y, but sometimes just one or the other.

Workaround is select the bitmap, then move it by 0.001 in any direction. Now the edges are no longer coincident and you can select your lines. The alternate workaround is to insert the image on another layer and then turn that layer off when you need to select a line on the edge of the bitmap.

Sorry - can’t give you a proper way to reproduce it .... it just happens.

100%
Task Description

Coming from https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=76&t=7148 ...

I create help lines of infinite length inside a block, layer is “helplines”, red, 0,25mm, DOT(2x). Inside the block I can see the lines at any zoom level. Leaving the block editor, the lines are getting shorter when zooming closer. Zooming far away the lines look like infinite length, zooming closer, the lines look like cut shorter, and zooming very close, the lines disappear completely.

As Husky confirmed:

Infinitive lines in blocks are displayed shortened in Model_Space. I would consider that a bug which pertains the QCAD Pro version too.
2063QCAD (main)Performance IssueLowBad performance while zooming inside layout block with ...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Zooming in and out is lagging to the point of unusable. This is happening in a layout block with the cursor pointing inside geometry with hatches. When the cursor is pointing outside the geometry zooming works as expected.
The attached file has a very simplified testcase that shows this problem almost in the same way as a more complex drawing with multiple layers and hatches.

edit: I also attached the more complex drawing because it is a bit unclear to me where the lagging stops. Outside the viewport or outside the paper.

I just noticed the selection box has the same problem!

If I’ve to duplicate a layer with a bunch of sub-layer it’s a kind of a Sisyphus task to get it done.

If any text in a dxf file use RTF formatting for their fonts, the RTF code is not decoded and the text ends up showing the entire RTF code instead of just the intended text.
