 1163 ECMAScriptBug ReportMedium DoveTail-script crashes QCAD Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi!

I just installed QCAD v3.7.5 and it works like a charm.

Then I installed the DoveTail-script (http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/download/file.php?id=623) and after that QCAD won’t start anymore.

This is the output on the command line in Linux:

Debug: RDwgPlugin::init

Don’t know whether that is a bug in the script or in QCAD, so I am reporting it here.

Task Description

When paper unit being change to other values (other than default “Milimeter” or “None”), the paper borders are wrongly displayed in print preview.

 1216 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium DXF/DWG writing: block name mixup with anonymous blocks Closed

Task Description

Anonymous blocks (with names starting with *, imported from other software) can be mixed up on writing.

 1237 QCAD/CAMBug ReportMedium Blocks should be layer agnostic Closed
100%
Task Description

I have created a block from a selection. I have then later created more items on my CAD page using that block, then later yet, moved the objects to a new layer. I noticed that while the object has accepted being on the new layer, the color hasn’t changed to the new layer’s color. I can only get the line color to change if I go into the block itself and move the individual segments of the block to that new layer, then save the new block (which, by the way, I can’t save over the existing block?!?!)

In the sample file attached, you will see that the block item in the 3 o’clock position is in layer 0, while the rest are in “Vent Holes” layer. If you make layer 0 hidden, the one block is hidden (like it should), but the block item refuses to take on the layer’s color even though the block’s color is “By Layer”

 1293 QCAD/CAMBug ReportMedium Crash when snapping to intersection points between 3d l ...Closed
100%
Task Description

I have a file that makes QCAD crash. I’ve been editing this design across different versions of QCAD over time and this is the first time I have a problem with it.

Steps to reproduce:
Open the attached file and try to add some entities or dimensions to it (you may need to create large ones since it seems to depend on the zoom factor; for example a very large ellipse). After a freeze of a few seconds QCAD will quit.

The attached file is a simplified version from which I deleted a number of entities; on the original I can’t do anything – QCAD crashes as soon as I try to create any object.

Cause: 3D lines with x1==x2, y1==y2 but z1!=z2

 1294 dxflibBug ReportMedium Hatches scale differently now from earlier releases Closed
100%
Task Description

Something with hatching changed between 3.10 and 3.12; Changelog for 3.11.2 states: “Add support for hatch patterns defined per entity”. That may be?

Attached drawing from an older version; open in current and see a black box where there should be earth. Change scaling of hatch from 10 to 254 and it will be exactly the same it was when saving the file.

Curiously, that is like swapping inches and mm? Looking into prefs, there is a new drop down: “Messsytem für Linien und Schraffuren” and it read “imperial”; making it metric and bingo, my drawing looks as intended!

This is bad, because each drawing has to be changed! I changed the application default drawing setting to metric and the existing drawing still had imperial set…

Probably a heuristic was on order? If the drawing does not specify the new setting, and the drawing units is metric, use metric?

 1347 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Point style bug. Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi !
i have find another strangeware about points.. if you set a different point style in program options, on the display the style is correct, but when you try to print or export the drawing, the points are printed as default “point” (little black circle).

 1348 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Points move during print/PDF-export Closed
100%
Task Description

Points move by a constant offset relative to the rest of the drawing when printing or exporting to PDF.

This is the exact same bug as  FS#1243 , which was reportedly fixed in version 3.9.7 with commit https://github.com/qcad/qcad/commit/9c9d7bbc3fd845b8475ff12a919ad8e86bbaeb1f, but has resurfaced in version 3.12.4 (and possibly earlier versions that I have not tested).

To replicate the bug, create a simple drawing with points and lines then print or export to PDF, and notice that the points have moved relative to the lines or have disappeared off of the page entirely.

Tested with Arch Linux, 64 bit; QCAD version 3.12.4 using the prebuilt binaries supplied from the qcad.org download site.

 1353 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Text rendering: subscripts and superscripts display Closed
100%
Task Description

Text with subscripts (e.g. “S\S^3;”) is display incorrectly with the latest version on both Mac OS X and windows 64-bit.

The subscript (”3”) is displayed before the normal text (”S”).

I have been using subscripts to indicate electrical switch types on my blue prints.

It appears that superscripts are also being displayed incorrectly.

 1357 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Can't open files with special characters in their names Closed
100%
Task Description

When opening a .dxf file saved by QCAD with a name containing a special characters (tested with diacritics), it fails with the following message:

Cannot open file
'E:/tèst1.dxf'
Import failed.

How to reproduce:
1 - Save a file (content doesn’t matter, it’s the same with an empty file and a file containing data) using the name “tèst1.dxf” 2 - Try to open the file
3 - Error message

What is expected:
The file open.

Note that the problem doesn’t lie in the “save” step: the same file, once renamed to “test1.dxf” opens fine.

Task Description

QCAD/CAM version 3.16.7.1 (snapshot release)

QCAD/CAM version 3.16.7.1 for Ubuntu Linux starts up with a totally black screen with only the title bar showing. By clicking around at the top of the screen I can get the menus to drop down and appear over the blank black screen. That is how I captured all the version information below. QCAD/CAM version: 3.15.5.0 for Ubuntu Linux starts with all the normal screen graphics appearing normally. I labeled this bug report as critical because QCAD/CAM is unusable on Ubuntu Linux, but for me it is not so critical since I can use the Windows version.

 1820 QCAD/CAMBug ReportMedium CAM Export: exporting text entities broken Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Kubuntu, QCAD/CAM 3.21.3

Font Standard. Selected as ‘single line’ font for engraving with mill or laser.

While CAM Exporting as G-code Laser (Offset) MM, or as Linux CNC, Exporting gets trapped in a loop.

In Font Standard the glyph’s ? & $ @ s S Q and 2 contains unwanted Z-movements. It seems these glyphs entities are not alligned properly; endpoint last line does not meet startpoint next line; why else the Z-movements?

Could this misallignment also traps Exporting?

QCAD Professional 3.23.0 is using en_US keyboard layout although I have a Finnish keyboard on Fedora 29. I have not found a way, how to chance the keyboard definition. In Fedora repositories there is QCAD Community Edition 3.22.1, and keyboard definitions there are working OK. Keyboard layout is following Gnu desktop keyboard selection and can be changed on the fly. Wrong keyboard layout makes working very hard, because almost all special keys are in different places, like colon, semicolon, plus, minus, parentheses, slash etc.

Hello,

I am stage manager and I have been using QCAD PRO nearly every day for 2 years now.
But since yesterday it seems that text is not saved within the file : when I reopen a saved file, text doesn’t show up. Do I miss a setting ?
I currently run Mac OS X Mavericks but there haven’t been any issues with this OS for months.

I deleted the app and prefs and tried out with 3.6.0 (which I don’t use because it often quits brutally), and also the free version of 3.6.4
But the issue still the same.

As I use this app for my work, it is very annoying not to be able to use text !
Thanks for your help

 1164 QCAD (main)Feature RequestMedium make selected layer default parent for new layer Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Hello!

I would like to suggest a small, but yet important improvement to usabilty.

When adding a new layer the currently selected layer should be default for parent layer.

Currently a new layer is by default a top level layer, and so the user has to select the parent layer for each sub-layer, again and again.

Thanks,
Christian

 264 QCAD (main)Feature RequestMedium Support for "Layouts" (paper space, viewport) Closed
100%
25 Task Description

There is one important ACAD feature that I would really like to see supported in QCAD3 and that is “Layouts”

Looking at the block lists, it seems to me that it can’t be too much extra work to support it, since the model space and different paper spaces are already shown there - and one can edit it.

QCAD draws infinitely easier than ACAD and drawing layouts is a primary feature of ACAD. With this in QCAD I can hardly see why anyone that does 2D work would need ACAD at all.

 9 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow RSettings.setValue() doesn't work for "GraphicsViewColo ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Context: Needed to set color settings for book images.

"GraphicsViewColors/BackgroundColor""GraphicsViewColors/MetaGridColor"

QCAD3.conf:

[email protected](\0\0\0\x7f\0\0\0\aRColor\0\x1\xff\xff\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\x2)
MetaGridColor  [email protected](\0\0\0\x7f\0\0\0\aRColor\0\x1\xff\xff\xff\xff\xfe\xfe\xfd\xfd\0\0\0\x2)

Setting the alpha channel value and the color mode for RColor doesn’t change anything.
Using view.setBackgroundColor() instead works for the background color, but not for other colors such as the meta grid color.
