 378 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Poor performance when trying to move multiple entities Closed
100%
Task Description

I have a dwg file and find the performance very poor when trying to move an entity. QCAD3 beta 3 appears incapable of performing the necessary calculations for the “Auto Snap” when trying to select the reference point (the mouse pointer does not track the path). If Auto Snap is turned off there is no performance issue.

I can provide a problem file (via email) but am unable to upload it to the internet as it is a proprietary drawing.

 368 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Appearance preference Closed
100%
Task Description

RC1 is lazy in saving appearance to config. I noticed, because it always started with default window size. Maximizing was not carried over, also the panels were consistently reset.

Only when eg. dragging the handle to change cad-toolbar width not from preferences it would write an “appearance” section to the config file.

The appearance section should be written rather sooner than later.

 367 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Snap "Reference" also for an arc ... Closed
100%
1 Task Description

The Snap “Reference” is perfect working on circles.

I would be nice to have this function also on Arc’s.
There are many necessities to attach a Horizontal or Vertical line on an arc or an “ex circle” (circle after a cut,)rounds etc. in a professional drawing.

 366 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Draw circles tangent to other entities Closed

It would be useful to have an option in the Circle tools to be able to draw a circle tangent to other entities such as lines/circles etc.

 363 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Modify tool "Stretch" only one time ... Closed
100%
Task Description

3.0 RC1

The Stretch Tool works only for one task and than you have to reselect it again for the next task.
Who really works with the stretch tool has to use it (often) a couple times consecutively to get the job done.

It was nice working in 2.2.2.0

 362 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Regression in SvgExporterPG.prototype.exportEntity Closed
100%
Task Description

In RC1 text in PG SVG will be in the wrong location. The position passed from native code to the SvgExporterPG.prototype.exportEntity is wrong:

Instead of the actual place of the text it gets the position of the surrounding block entity, or, for text that is not in a block, “0,0,0”.

Dimension labels are not affected by this. Also HAlign and VAlign are not passed correctly for text in the model-view block.

355QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRemember function for dimension OptionAssigned
0%
Task Description

I think it would be nice to have more flexibility for Prefix etc. option (not only the drop down with a given choice) and a remember function for all those fields like postfix and tolerance.

Why Remember Function:
If I use a postfix like <>” in the postfix field I’m only able to use it for this particular dimension type at this time. If I change the type (from Horizontal to vertical or what ever) I have always to repeat my postfix. The same with tolerances.

 354 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Property Editor / Select Layer Malfunction Closed

Task Description

RC1b
To change the postfix for dimension.
Situation: New drawing, Dimension in Drawing, Dimension on one Layer. Menu > Select > Select Layer and click on a dimension. Went to Property Editor > Geometry > Label and change the Label in <>”. Nothing happens.

The same procedure with a other kind of selection works and it works also in the 2.2.2.0

 331 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Snap buttons doubled Closed
100%
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
100%
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
100%
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
100%
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
