 1864 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow File > Print Current View: multiple pages printed Closed
100%
Task Description

Case: My last “Print preview” setting was “Multiple Pages” = 4
QCAD will remember this setting until I change it.

If I then - maybe days later - start a “Print current view” out of my drawing then QCAD will show me the current view on ONE page. Exactly what I expected. If I start the print QCAD will print on FOUR pages regarding to the last “Print preview” setting. Not what I was looking for .... :-(

Now knowing what will happen I launch “Print current view”, see my current view on ONE page, launch the “Drawing preferences”, see that FOUR is the number for pages, doesn’t change anything and cancel the dialog. NOW I can see that FOUR pages are used for the current view print.

That is confusing and it would be nice to have somehow more control over this behavior. ;-)

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.

 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.

 1892 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow weird/inconsistent text-alignment Closed
100%
Task Description

I guess I’ve discovered a bug:

Text elements align the same no matter if “base” or “bottom” alignment is chosen. The text is “shifting” (in both cases) when the characteristic “contains glyphs that cross the base line” is changed. Same shifting also occurs with text aligned “top” with having no glyphs reaching the top-line.
I assume this isn’t the intended behaviour ...

For demonstration I attached a file where I’ve put lines (to align with) and three sample texts “as” (only “center”-glyphs), “aps” (glyph crossing base-line) and “this” (glyphs reaching top-line), each aligned with all vertical alignment-options (1-top, 2-midlle , 3-base , 4-bottom).

Hope fixing this dosen’t take too much effort.
Regards,
Volker

 1906 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Draw > Polyline > Polyline from Segments: Converting fu ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Win7/32bit
QCADpro 3.22.1.0

Full 360 degrees Arcs don’t convert correct to polylines with the methods OG and OC.
Both methods create a zero-length open type Polyline and remove the full Arc.
OG creates a Poly with 2 vertexes at the startpoint (= endpoint) and OC one with 0 (zero!) vertexes.
The firts one is selectable, the second one only with ‘Select All’//TA because there are no references.

The OL method with the same start and endpoint doens’t affect the full arc.
Neither a poly is created nor an error is generated that the method failed.

Typical the bulge of the OG method is (-)16331239353195370, the OC method has no references.
The math to calculate the bulge should result in a division by zero or an illegal function as tan(π/2).
Therefore a polyline can’t contain a 360 degrees arc by standard means.

From the OC method is known that it simplify coradial arc strings to a single arc.
This should not result in 360 degrees arcs what would result in zero-length segments.
(With CAM fuzzy things may happen at such positions)

Simplifying coradial arcs strings that would create a 360 degrees arc should result in no less then two coradial Arcs.
The OG method will then creates a open Poly with 3 vertexes, OC a closed one with 2 vertexes.

Found while fiddling around with editing CXF fonts.
CXF uses full Arcs, two half arcs and even polylines with coradial segments that forms circles are supported,
the OC closed polyline with 2 vertexes is recoded as two 180 degree Arcs (90-270&270-90).

With a polyline.

Select the poly.
Pick any reference point of a vertex.
Place it on any of its neighboring vertex reference points.

A null-segment is created.
The placement can not be undone by re-picking the reference point.
Can be Undone/Redone.
The action can result from editing the vertex coordinates.
When exploding null-entities are created.

This action should delete:
- if the target is next: the picked vertex. (incl. start or end-1)
- if the target is prior: the targetted vertex. (incl. start or end-1)
- if the target is and next and prior: both the prior and the picked vertex.

As the user intentionally places any vertex reference points on:
- any excluding its neighbors:
→ the intented nature is ‘Self-Touching’, ‘Self-Crossing’ or ‘Trace-Back’.
- any of its neighbors:
→ the intention is to delete the segment(s).
