To reproduce:

  3. Move that dimension’s text to a new position.
  4. DC, continue that dimension.


The text of the continued dimension will show up on top of that of the base dimension. Expected behaviour would be that it would show up on top of the continued dimension (standard placement).

 2128 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow "Create Library Item" "Save As" dialogue doesn't rememb ...Closed
100%
2 Task Description

This is either a bug or a feature request, depending on perspective; my apologies if I’ve picked the wrong one. Additional discussion can be found here.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create an entity
2. Run “Create Library Item” [BT]
3. Select Reference Point

Expected outcome:
“Save As” dialogue opens in the directory that the previous library item was saved in

Actual outcome:
“Save As” dialogue opens in ( RSettings.getLaunchPath() + “/libraries” )

Additional Context:
The reason I’ve categorized this as a bug is because, relative to the behaviour of the main “Save As” dialogue (which does remember the last directory used) the behaviour of the “Create Library Item” “Save As” dialogue is unexpected.

Software versions:
QCAD 3.25.2 Pro
Windows 10 Pro

2127QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSnap for predicted intersections while using "Restrict ...Assigned
0%
2 Task Description

I would like to request a new kind of snap: a “Restricted Intersection” snap that appears at the point where an entity would intersect with a line drawn from Relative Zero that fulfills the current EL criteria. “Restricted Intersection” snaps would be similar to other Relative Zero-based snaps (like “Perpendicular” and “Tangential”), but would predict the point of the snap from the EL constraints instead of the characteristics of the entity being snapped to. Naturally a value of 0 for angle or length would result in that constraint being ignored.

Additional operational flexibility could be achieved by allowing the snap to exist regardless of whether EL is actually in use. To be useful this would probably require determining snap locations based on angle OR length as opposed to angle AND length.

Implementing this new snap would allow, for example, for easily drawing a line of unknown (but determinable) length at a specified angle between a given point and a given entity (see discussion here), with the “Restricted Intersection” snap ensuring that the endpoint of the new line forms an intersection with the entity in question. Currently the same goal can be achieved a couple of different ways, but they all involve at least two separate steps.

 2121 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow File > Save As: Export as DXF R15 Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,

I have purchased QCAD Pro (3.25.2), the minimum the software can save is R18 when i set at Application Preferences - File - Open/Save.

When i make my drawing and wanted to save to R15, there is notification,

The file format version you are using is not recommended: “R15 [2000/LT2000]
DXF drawing [OpenDesign] (*.dxf)”.
Custom properties will not be saved.
All black entities and layers will be saved as white.
All custom colors will be adjusted to the nearest fixed color. Proceed?

I need to save to R15 as my cutting software can only detect R15 drawing at max.

When i save to R15,

My drawing will have 1 line that become a huge circle, making my machine cannot cut as per drawn by me.

Can you help me in solving this R15 issue on QCAD 3.25.2 so that it can save to R15 properly.

Edit: Playing around ... could it be that RZ is not propperly set within those tools?

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.
