 642 DocumentationBug ReportLow Better explanaton for Layer '0' Closed
100%
Task Description

Layer ‘0’ has some special function. E.g. it can not be deleted, it will contain the data of undeleted layers.

I recommend adding some explanations: Explain the function of Layer ‘0’ as third paragraph in chapter 12 of the manual. Further it should be recommended to never use this layer for drawing.

By the way: I consider this to be better than no layer undelete. BUT: is there really not way for a true layer undelete...

 1004 DocumentationBug ReportLow QCAD e-book not searchable in Preview, Acrobat Closed

Task Description

I just downloaded QCAD and bought the doc that goes with it. Lo and behold, I find that I cannot search the doc in Preview (Acrorbat Reader too!)! So I paid extra for doc that might be argued should come with a product (although its hard to complain about the price) and then I cannot even search it electronically? There is just everything wrong with that in the year 2014! Please fix as it is extremely inefficient and time consuming to not have electronic search capability.

 1040 DocumentationBug ReportLow Break out Manual on Circle/Ellipse does not respect Rem ...Closed
100%
Task Description

3.4.7 trial as well as community Git 9d3979

  • Draw a circle
  • B2
  • Make sure “Remove segment” is ticked
  • Select circle, then select two points to break out in between

Expected:

  • Segment gets removed (not really, but read on)

Actual:

  • Segment does not get removed, but circle is indeed broken into two arcs

Same for an ellipse.

I can see that by selecting two points on a closed circular shape it’s nigh impossible to tell which segment the user actually wants to remove :)

The documentation doesn’t mention this corner case. For clarity, a note detailing this effect a bit should be added to the docs.

On a slightly related note, I do not see why the feature couldn’t work on Polyline objects as well (with the same corner case restriction if it’s a closed polyline).

Very useful feature btw, thanks for it.

 1889 DocumentationBug ReportLow Autosave fails for QCAD original cxf font location Closed
100%
Task Description

Now I try the third time to post this .... :-( .... deleted by “wrong token”???????
However ...

Regarding to the online tutorial:

quote:
Opening a CXF Font for Editing

To load an existing CXF font file in QCAD to view and edit its glyphs, simply use the menu File > Open and choose the format filter “CXF Font Files (*.cxf)”. Then choose the font file you want to open. The fonts that come with QCAD are stored in directory “fonts” of your QCAD installation.

quote end

Editing the cxf font in the original QCAD font folder will lead to a error message triggered by the Autosave function:

File access error: “C:/Program Files/qcad-3.22.1-pro-win64/fonts\~~Husky_test_font.dxf”. Access is denied.
[15:34:58] Autosave failed: C:\Program Files\qcad-3.22.1-pro-win64\fonts\~Husky_test_font.dxf

Note: Windows will not save anything in a system folder and the process is terminated by windows.

Solution: Move the cxf font for editing from the QCAD folder to a unprotected folder like Documents/drawings.
After editing is done move it back to the QCAD font folder.

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”).

Thanks!

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!

With dxflib, QCAD cannot open any file with Chinese file name or path name, it popups a “Important Error” dialog.
But the writing (”Save As” command) with Chinese file name or path name is of no problem.
Does it mean dxflib can only handle single byte characters file name/path name?

1203dxflibBug ReportLowImages not saved (dxflib)Assigned
0%
Task Description

I am doing a bit of landscaping and using a (big) ortophoto as one of my layers in order to sanity-check on the ground measurements.

The layer contains a point and the image and nothing else.

The image is a 8MB file: “PNG image data, 4200 x 2980, 8-bit/color RGB, non-interlaced” and it is scaled to 210 coordinate units (meter) horizontally in the drawing.

With approx 50% probability the image disappears during Save, as see for instance in this diff of the DXF file:

The point in the same layer does not similarly disappear, the bug only seems to affect images.

I have seen this bug from version 3.7.5.0 to git as of yesterday (63e06c778926a803bdfbffdf27b8c24d41511072).

I have not been able to correlate the bug with anything.

Looking closer at the DXF file (attached), there seems to be some residuce of attempts to insert images in protected/invisible layers, so this may be some kind of refcounting issue.

(Any chance of getting FreeBSD into the “Operating System” field ?)

Report is for version 3.7.5 as it was the only version I found to download on the qcad.org webpage.
Sourceforge also didn’t seem to have any downloads and while I found a few dxflib clones on GitHub, none seemed official or up-to-date.
But maybe I’m just blind :-)

 1305 dxflibPerformance IssueLow Bottleneck in DL_Dxf::toReal caused by std::locale Closed
100%
Task Description

Loading any larger dxf file takes very long because of this line:
istr.imbue(std::locale(”C”));

The call to std::locale is very slow. File-loading can be speed up by approximately factor 5 times on my system when replacing it. I just removed that line and instead added the following in DL_Dxf::in so it is changed only once per file:

std::locale oldLocale = std::locale::global(std::locale(”C”)); // use dot in numbers
while (readDxfGroups(fp, creationInterface)) {}
std::locale::global(oldLocale);

 1321 dxflibBug ReportLow dxflib: Handles not parsed correctly Closed
100%
Task Description

I did noticed a bug in the lib: Indeed, the handle numbers that DL_Dxf is parsing are in most case incorrect.
I believe this is due to the way then handle number is parsed in DL_Dxf::processDXFGroups.
The handle is parsed by calling the function getIntValue, which itself calls the function toInt to convert the handle from std::string to int by calling the function std::strtol(handle, NULL, 10).
However, the handle numbers in a dxf file are stored as hexadecimal.
I wrote a quick and easy fix to this issue, just tell me if you are interested!

 1485 dxflibBug ReportLow dxflib: Lines are on the wrong layer when processing dx ...Closed
100%
Task Description

I create a drawing using QCAD which is stored using dxflib. For some reasons dxflib must be used. This drawing contains arcs and lines on a separate layer. If the dxf file is processed by an other tool only the arcs are referenced to the specific layer. The lines are referenced to the standard layer 0. It doesn’t matter if I’m using the community edition or the pro edition.

After a some investigations I found that the created dxf file is not correct. I manually corrected the dxf file and it works as it should.

For details please refer to the appended files. Take a look to the ENTITY section and the LINE entities, e.g. line 2370. It is just to swap two entities.

Thanks for support.

 103 ECMAScriptFeature RequestLow Runtime reload script Closed
100%
Task Description

As of TP1, a script once loaded into the runtime, does reflect changes to the file it was loaded from only after a restart of the whole of QCAD. This adds a considerable time overhead to developing scripts. Therefore I want to suggest a reload mechanism, that works kind of like the one known from a web browser.

As there is no clear separation between users custom scripts and ribbonsoft supplied scripts, checking the modification time for every access to any script might prove a performance hit.

Possibly a user script can be written, to invalidate another certain script and have the runtime reload it from file? I could add that to my menu.

Or as some magic, that can be written to “MyAction.init()”?
