100%
Task Description

I use a font that changes the characters of latin and greek to technical symbols.
http://www.fontspace.com/micronus/y145m-2009 The font is installed and working okee.
But in the text tool → special characters button → others I expect to see this modified character map but instead I see the standard unicode characters.
When I use a gtk tool gucharmap I can see the character map as expected.
Now it is really combersome to enter the special characters.

2140QCAD (main)SuggestionLowChanging navigation mode for mouse wheel doesn't change...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Looks like error, but may be that’s feature request.

CAD software uses typical navigation behavior as:
Wheel = Zoom; Ctrl+Wheel = Scroll up/down; Shift+Wheel = Scroll left/right.

Any other software like browsers, office software (openoffice writer, ms excel and so on), 2d paint software like GIMP (Photoshop and so on) uses other behavior:
Wheel = Scroll up/down; Ctrl+Wheel = Zoom; Shift+Wheel = Scroll left/right.

Users, that intensively use CAD and other software simultaneously prefer to make same behavior in their applications switching CAD scroll to plain mouse wheel.

QCAD’s “Application Preferences”: “Graphics View: Navigation”: “Mouse wheel/ two finger swipe”: “Scroll” allow user to assign scroll up/down to wheel mouse instead of Zoom. But there is mistake Ctrl+Wheel didn’t change to Zoom. Ctrl+Wheel continues to scroll up/down, as the wheel.
Wheel = Scroll up/down; Ctrl+Wheel = Scroll up/down; Shift+Wheel = Scroll left/right. No zoom!

Draw manipulation at this mode like a hell: you need to use wheel in conjunction with Ctrl/Shift to point draw in desired position, than move your hand to +(-) for make desired zoom.

525QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowchange the printed symbol of pointsAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

in QCAD3 RC2 points were printed as crosses, in QCAD3 RC4 they are printed as (very little) points. I think this isn’t a bug but a feature. ;-)

It would be nice if one could change this behaviour / select the symbol of points.

Best regards - Stefan

Task Description

Change a quote value modify the drawing + link quotes with entities

In other words, makes quotes editable AND linked to entities.

  • Today in the properties, the value is read only. Being able to edit the value would modify the linked entity properties to fit the new quote.
  • Changing a property would change the linked quotes accordingly. Today, if I change a circle diameter which is quoted, the quote remain where it was and is no more relevant.

1469QCAD (main)SuggestionLowCartouche automatiqueAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Would not it be possible to create a kind of template for printing?
We draw our room without cartridge. The cartridge will automatically appear when printed. The scaling could be automatic so that it goes in the A4 and therefore also will post the scale automatically. The name of the play could be the file name, date last saved after it the rest of the information that would be to add somehow (material index, designer, ...).

Original suggestion:

Bonjour,

Ne serait il pas possible de créer une sorte de template lors de l’impression ?
On dessine notre pièce sans cartouche. Le cartouche s’affiche automatiquement lors de son impression. La mise à l’échelle pourrais être automatique pour que ca rentre dans le A4 et donc l’échelle s’afficherai aussi en automatique. Le nom de la pièce pourrais être le nom du fichier, la date du dernier enregistrement après c’est le reste des infos qui serait à ajouter je ne sais comment (matière, indice, dessinateur, ...).

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

 556 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Can't change entity's layer by double-click Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,

One thing not in the v3 (but in the v2) is the ability to assign a layer to an entity by double click on the layer name (in the layers list)

On V 2 :
1 - Select entity
2 - Double click on the layer’s name

> then le entity is in this layer

On V 3 :
1 - Select entity
2 - Double click on the layer’s name

> nothing change

It’s useful to change it by this way, please make it possible in v3.

 1867 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Can you provided a worked example for scripting (I can' ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Please can you provided a worked example for scripting (I can’t find anything similar in the Help/Book)?

I have a 2D drawing that has a segmented circle that is divided into 12/16/20 segments etc.

I want to show this in a side 2D view e.g. there are 6/8/10 segments visible to fill in a rectangle.

I can manually calculate the distance to draw vertical “fill” lines by calculating the angle of the end of each segment. With the option to rotate the position of the lines by half/third of a segment.

A simple example with only 2 segments visible, it’s 0, 50% and 100%.
With 4 segments, it’s tan(22.5), tan(45), -tan(45) and 90 degrees that’s approximately 41%, 50%, 59% and 100%.

So the task, is to receive the coordinates of the area e.g. a rectangle, divide the rectangle into unequal smaller rectangles.

I imagine that a 3D program can do this, but I want to do something similar. Perhaps this is more easily applied - I’m new to CAD and QCAD.

 1997 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow CAM > CAM Export: Fails for new document created Closed
100%
1 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.
