0%
2 Task Description

If I work in QCAD only with Toolbars (and not with the “Cad Tools” there is nowhere a Button to find for “Create Block from selection”.
If I have to create a Block based on a selection I have to work with the Menu or have to activate the Cad Tools.

But, if I look at the Blocklist menu there is a function (+) to add an empty Block. It would be nice to have this button working for both situation - empty Block or depending on a selection to “Create Block from selection”.

Or alternative an additional Button ... :-(

Anyway - in my opinion would that make the “Blocklist” complete. :-)

 214 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Adding dimensions to circles or arcs in a block Closed
100%
Task Description

In previous versions I was able to add a diametric dimension to an arc or circle that is part of a block in the overal drawing.
When I try this now, the pogram resonds “Entity is not an arc or circle” the radius dimension gives the same error.
This is unfortunate, because typically dimensions are on another layer in the overal drawing.

1645QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd warning when opening file with 3D contentAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi.

I’m working currently a lot with files coming from rhino. Qcad can open them properly any also most operations on them work as usual - except the selection methods.

box select from upper left to lower right works as usual.
double click to select all connected entities is broken. (only one entity is selected).
box select from lower right to upper left does not select entities touching the selection box. (nothing is selected)

on mac os nothing is selectable with single click.
on linux single click sometimes fails (nothing is selected after clicking on a line).

thanks for looking into this :)

 538 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow add to / remove from hatch Closed

Task Description

Given a hatch, it would be very useful if one could add another closed polyline to the existing hatch or remove the overlapping area from the existing hatch.

1888dwg2bmpFeature RequestLowAdd support to disable hatch rendering on "dwg2bmp"Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi!

A friendly request to add an option to disable hatch rendering on “dwg2bmp” conversions.

Depending on the nature of the conversion and the density of the hatch, this may render unintelligible images (see attachments). The option could look like “-t, -nohatch” to indicate hatches should be hidden before rendering. This could potentially become an option too for “dwg2svg” or “dwg2pdf.”

Amazing product, thank you so much!

Hi, for multi-screen hosts it would be very useful to have additional windows while running the single QCad instance. Other applications like Palemoon, Evolution, Gimp are providing that already.
That would help a lot when working on multiple files and copying blocks between.

Antartica is put in a block as segments.
Added a rounded corner as segments and as poly.

The scaled version is all over the place.
Set them to color red, no use they stay black.

The cyan circle is about 400mm in diameter.

 1225 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow add support for circles, ellipses Closed
100%
Task Description

The attached file should result in two overlapping circles, it does not, it results in a single ellipse.

The “<circle ... />” directive seems just be ignored in this case, but in other instances I have seen it result in ellipses.

And the “<ellipse ... />” directive should of course result in a circle, when rx and ry are the same.

 2244 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Add poyline segment midpoint to 'Store Positions' Closed

Andrew,

Besides that Misc .. Information .. ‘Store Positions’ - stores the startpoint of each polyline
- or stores all nodes of each polyline (With: InfoStorePositions/PolylineNodes = true)
Refering to https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=6300

I somethimes require the midpoints of the line and arc segments as spline controlpoints
+ the start and the endpoint when geometrical open.

Could that be made an undocumented preference too?

1647QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd point / dot option for leaders Assigned

Hi Andrew,

Hopefully you might be able to squeeze this one around your busy schedule.

Would it be possible to add in the property editor an option to change a dimension arrow to a point / filled dot and maybe also a tick?

I see you are working on some viewport stuff, I am very much looking forward to testing some of this out ;).

Many thanks

Clive

To improve the flow of drawing I’d like to switch off the dialog for the rotate tool. Most of the times i use the interactive input and delete the original. So I don’t need to click a popup to acknowledge that.

823QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd Midpoint Handles to Lines and PolylinesAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

The Midpoint Handles should be used to move Polyline Segments and lines. This would add easy to access stretch functionality.
Combined with a shortcut(hold down shift or alt etc.) to fix the movement to be orthogonal to the line this would bring a lot of extra value.
It would also be possible to to have another shortcut to easily insert nodes to Polylines (again hold shift or alt etc.)

1254QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd drop object along a path with automatic trimAssigned
0%
Task Description

Add drop object along a path with automatic trim.

  1. The object can be a selection before or after selecting the tool, an entity or a block.
  1. The path can be another entity from a start point to an end point.
  1. Dropping can be made on one side or the other (like in other tools depending on the side of the cursor), with a choice of miroring the object or not.
  1. The number of drops or the distance between can be selected.
  1. The distance can be between a control point of the object or its sysmetry axis or border.
  1. The dropping direction can be selected too.
  1. The droping depth can be constrained : all control points have passed the path, or one of them. Alternatively, replace control points by an entity belonging to the object.

Exemple of use case : equidistant drills in a curved rail. The dropping depth constraint enables for example to ensure a drill has a minimal depth when not orthogonal to a plan.

1100QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd drag dimension (snap) along dimension lineAssigned
0%
2 Task Description

In Autocad when making a dimension when left clicking to place the dimension there is the possibility to drag the dimension to either side of the dimension. This is also possible with Qcad dimension, but it losses the snapping and does not extend the dimension line out to the dimension text.

This is very useful when the two lines the needs a dimension are close together, or overlapping with another.

Attached is two images one for autocad and one for Qcad

 1297 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Add context menu Closed
100%
Task Description

Optionally show context menu when right-mouse button is clicked on top of entity.

Originally from FS#1111: “Furthermore, the two named applications show that it’s easily possible to combine dragging (mouse pressed) and context menu (mouse clicked) on the same mouse button.
Providing a context menu would increase the usability especially for people used to Windows default applications.
I.e. deleting, copying, creating polylines from segments, breaking up blocks/polylines would be functions I’d find useful in a context menu.”

 2156 QCAD (main)SuggestionLow Add an option to XP preferences to include circles or n ...Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Andrew,
unrelated to any OS or version.

Circles do explode to polylines with two arc segments.
Discussed earlier and very correct because a full circle bulge would be a mathematical limit situation.

When there is no option to ‘Undo’ anymore or when the file was saved & loaded there is no easy way back.

One of the reasons why I isolate circle entities if I might going to use XP as in the file here:
https://qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=2155
Even knowing it, I still make more mistakes as I would like. ;-)

It would be nice to be able to exclude circle entities from the GUI explosion action XP.
Can be simply implemented in the top of Explode.explodeSelection with an extra preference in AppPrefs, default =true.

On the other hand, the explosions of circles used internally in various methods should remain.

Regards,
CVH

1887dwg2bmpFeature RequestLowAdd "-max-lineweight" option for dwg2bmpAssigned
0%
2 Task Description

Hi there,

A friendly request to add the option to set a maximum lineweight for raster conversions via dwg2bmp.

Depending on the LW configuration of the CAD file, rasterization operations sometimes yield terrible results (see attachment). This would also mirror the similar “-min-lineweight” options available on “dwg2svg” and “dwg2pdf” (although not on “dwg2bmp”).
