1934QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDiametric text - overlaidAssigned
0%
Task Description

Diametric text is always placed above a horizontal measurement.

I often want to indicate both the inside and outside diameter of an object e.g. a wheel using diametric text. The text is overlaid and illegible.

To avoid text overlapping, I use Horizontal Aligned because I can control the position of the text to avoid illegible text.

A better method would be to alternate the placement of diametric text (alternatively) above and below a measurement so that in the majority of cases an overlap would be avoided.

Similarly for a vertical measurement, the text is overlaid and illegible.

When the angle is almost vertical, the angle controls the side the text appears however it also reverses the direction of the text (which is logical but not attractive).

Kind regards
Simon

1977QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowCorresponding coordinate format Assigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

It would be less confusing to read messages in the command line protocol if it would use the same coordinate separators like the settings below Application Preferences / General / Coordinate Format.

This example shows the “Absolute Cartesian Coordinate” but of course all corresponding format settings should be used within messages.

Absolute Cartesian Coordinate: Setting = semicolon (;) but the message will use division (/).

1983QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowTrim All or Bulk Break outAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

This is a trim method I am missing in Qcad.

20 years ago it existed in CadKey.
You had a bunch of lines or segments.
You defined a (new) line or segment as cutter.
‘Trim All’.
You pointed at the side of the cutter entity to trim all intersecting at that side.

Pritty the same as in this topic:
https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=5221

Only in rare cases I can use Husky’s workaround as pro.
It all depends on what else is in the clipping rectangle that is needed to trim all intended.
If of no use all single crossing entities have to be chosen one by one.

CVH

1997QCAD/CAMBug ReportLowCan't export gcode, intermittentlyAssigned
0%
Task Description

When I create a simple drawing, I cannot export the gcode until I restart qcad.

general steps to reproduce the issue:
1. open a new drawing
2. Add a letter “D” near the origin in Arial font, about 7mm tall.
3. explode it
4. save the drawing
5. Fill in in the “cam configuration” 6. Select the drawing and generate the tool paths.
7. Hit the “export button” or the menu item.
8. Observe that you see the “camexport” command appears in the command section, but there is no file generated for the gcode.

If you restart qcad, then the gcode will export as expected. Also, it appears to work for more complicated drawings. I had the same issue, when I tried to generate the same thing, but using the string “November 2019” at 5mm height. I am using up to date MX Linux with kernel version 4.19.0. I also observed this behavior under Windows 10 professional.

1999QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowViewport: Add additional properties for controlling dim...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

When working with multiple Viewports with different scale it could be very useful to have extra properties controlling how dimensions are rendered in the viewport:

1)
E.g an extra “Dimension Scale” under “Scale” in the Viewport selection’s ‘Specific Properties’ section, could allow having the same size when printed.
This Dimension Scale would be multiplied on top of the Scale value, but only for Dimensions rendering.

2)
Toggle button for hiding any dimensions in the Viewport. Maybe this should be controlled by being able to specify a Layer that should be hidden in this Viewport only, then I could select my Dimensions layer here.

The Viewport properties:

 540 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low "pa" ("parallel") keycode triggers wrong action Closed
100%
Task Description

In the latest QCAD Community Edition source code (2.0.5.0-1-community), the wrong action is triggered for the “pa” keycode. Specifically, it triggers the basic draw line command. Here is the relevant code from qcadcmd/src/rs_commands.cpp, in RS_Commands::keycodeToAction:

  } else if (c==tr("li", "line")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;
  } else if (c==tr("pa", "parallel")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;

I believe this should instead be:

  } else if (c==tr("li", "line")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;
  } else if (c==tr("pa", "parallel")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLineParallel;

First of all, thanks for this wonderful product !

My issue : when I modify (at file level) some parameters like the number of decimals in cotations, or the linethikness of a calc, these modifications are lost after saving and reopening the dxf. It comes back to the default values. It is not the case for the colors for instance.

 656 QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery Low Data should not be in programs directory Closed
100%
Task Description

QCAD2 offered the user to specify in the program settings where these directories should be/go, and took the first one in each list as default; QCAD3 only offers to enter auxiliary library and template directories and has no provisions for defaults.

All associated data (scipts, templates, libraries, patterns, fonts) is stored under the program directory, exactly where it should not be. Windows 7 and higher default prevent modifying the programs directory by redirecting the writes.
An extra user-input during the Windows install process would be in order.

QCAD3 should offer the user to specify any and all data directories involved (including the auto save), and make it possible to specify a default for each.
This list could be initialised with the installation defaults, or default to the installation directories when empty.

 890 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low Relative zero point mark artifact on print preview Closed
100%
Task Description

The relative zero point mark appears on the print preview screen. I don’t know, if it also gets printed (my printer setup appears to be broken at the moment), but it does not get exported to PDF, so I guess it is only on the print preview.

On a side note, I think that the reset command (qq) should also clear this. The manual states:

The Neutral State of QCAD
Menu:    Edit - Reset
Keycode: QQ

After the start, QCAD is in its neutral state. That means that no special tool is active and QCAD waits for you to click a menu or tool button to start a tool and start doing something.

As there is no relative zero point just after startup, I think it should also not persist a qq.

 #endif

(truncated list to manage size)

I see that most of this was put in there as a kind of a note-to-self originally, however _SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN is implemented by every realistically possible targets anyway, so for all practical purposes, this is dead weight.

A couple of questions remain, though:

  • #ifdef Q_OS_WIN32 should probably be Q_OS_WIN, so as to include win64 as well.
  • Assuming the real purpose for this function is to determine how many parts a particular task is to be split into in the future, if and when QCAD gets the need to split expensive tasks among multiple CPUS, “core” probably shouldn’t be static - CPUs are hot-pluggable today, and while one probably doesn’t do that on a laptop, it’s not unfeasible in, say, a VDI environment.

Thoughts?

 1071 QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery Low (Bitmap) scaling convenience option Closed
100%
1 Task Description

This can be done as is in QCAD today, but a quick convenience UI bit would be much appreciated.

Suppose you are working off a bitmap image (transcribing old scan, or you got your apartment’s floor plan like this, because, uh, what tenant needs DXF). It has dimensions markers and everything, but fat chance it’ll be to actual CAD scale after importing.

So, to bring it to scale, you measure between two tick marks on the scale, compute ratio based on measurement and what’s written on the dimension line, and do a scale operation (you can also have QCAD compute the ratio by using math expression, whatever).

That works fine.

A purely just for convenience function to do that would be much appreciated: pick two points, enter what the actual distance between them is, poof bam, appropriate scaling operation is applied.

As a twist, there could be some other bitmap skewing options, like “the points I’ve selected are on a horizontal/vertical line/at an angle of X degrees, then the bitmap would also be applied this transform.
