 528 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Font Editing  Closed
100%
Task Description

Dear Sir,
I have noticed that in QCAD 3 rc4 it is not possible to open and edit font files.
This feature exists in version 2.2 and is indispensable to people using not common languages.
For example the unicode font does not have all greek characters, so I have added a few of the missing ones by editing the unicode.cxf font with version 2.2.
I kindly ask the designers to consider enabling this capability again.
Thank you!

 533 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Kopierendes/Ausschneidendes Rechteck (Kreis) Werkzeug . ...Closed
100%
Task Description

In meiner Vergangenheit habe ich in anderen CAD Programmen mit folgendem Werkzeug gearbeitet was ich für Detailansichten, Bereinigungen oder ähnliches extrem Hilfreich empfand. Wäre schön wenn es so etwas auch in QCad gebe.

Werkzeug: Man zieht ein Rechteck (oder Kreis) über einen gezeichneten Bereich auf. Alles was innerhalb oder außerhalb des Rechtecks liegt wird kopiert/ausgeschnitten/gelöscht und auch direkt an den Linienkanten des auswählenden Rechtecks geschnitten.

Momentan kann ich ein Rechteck für Selektion bestimmen - muss aber dann nach einer Kopie alles manuell trimmen, löschen etc. um nur den gewünschten Rechteckinhalt zu bekommen ...

Task Description

Das Trim Werkzeug in QCad ist ideal um Linien zu verlängern in Bezug zu einer anderen Linie.
Wäre schön wenn dies auch umgekehrt funktionieren würde so das ich Linien verkürzen kann in Bezug zu einer anderen (nicht schneidenden) Linie.

I would like to see an autosave-option which allows to autosave, but which keeps only the latest autosave file (instead of all). So there would be autosave (if something crashes) but the hard disk is not filled up too fast.

 555 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Blöcke zählen .... Closed
100%
Task Description

Eine Zählfunktion die erfasst wie oft ein Block in einer Zeichnung vorhanden ist.

Hintergrund ist das es damit eine Unterstützung gäbe die das erstellen von Stücklisten etc. erleichtert würde.

Die Anzahl der Blöcke könnte z.B in der Block List eingeblendet werden wie z.B.: “Schraube M6x40 (17x)” oder auch in einer extra Text Liste.
Zudem könnten so auch nicht (oder nicht mehr) benutze Blöcke ermittelt werden wie z.B. “Schraube M6x20 (0x)” welche dann aus der Zeichnung entfernt werden könnten.

 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.

 558 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Blöcke aus dem Editiermodus direkt in der Library speic ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Blöcke aus dem Editiermodus direkt in der Library speichern zu können wäre eine erheblicher Arbeitsersparnis.

Wenn ich persönlich einen Block in einer Zeichnung erstelle überlege ich mir natürlich gleich ob ich diesen nicht auch in anderen Zeichnungen verwenden könnte. Somit erhalte ich leicht eine Umfangreiche Library die mein Leben leichter macht .... ;-)

 559 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Library Symbole mit gleichen Namen wie in der Zeichnung ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Blocknamen in einer Zeichnung haben Vorrang gegenüber gleichen Blocknamen aus der Library.

Eine Sicherheitsabfrage wie z.B.: Vorhanden Block überschreiben, ignorieren etc oder neuen Block umbenennen würde viele Überraschungen verhindern.

 565 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Align text to slanted lines Closed

I would like to get a button, which allows alignment of text to slanted lines (diagonal).
Copying of angle in line properties to text attributes is not so comfortable.

 576 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Library Browser Fensterposition merken ... Closed
100%
Task Description

XP

Ich würde es begrüßen wenn der Library Browser sich seine letzte Fenster Position und Größeneinstellungen “merken” könnte.
Zudem wäre es schön wenn er im letzten Modus öffnen würde - ich benutze zur Zeit überwiegend die Registerkarte “File System” zu der ich dann jedes mal neu navigieren muss.
Auch wäre es schön wenn das Browserfenster minimiert oder in den Hintergrund verschwindet sobald ich ein Symbol in die QCad Zeichenfläche ziehe - momentan kommt es oft vor das ich zwar das Symbol am “Maushaken” habe aber das Browserfenster im Weg ist. Um QCad in den Vordergrund zu holen muss ich die Zeichenfläche anklicken was aber dann natürlich schon das Symbol (an einer falschen Stelle) einfügt ...

 578 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Default line weight for new layers Closed
100%
Task Description

I couldn’t find where to specify the default “Line weight” for a newly created layer. Default proposed is 0,25 mm ISO and I would like to continue to uses 0,00 mm. Because, these lines are very thick when i look at my drawing in

 583 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Leere Layer als solche kennzeichnen ... Closed
100%
Task Description

Im Zuge einer Zeichnungserstellung entstehen viele Layer.
Auch Library Items oder Kopien aus anderen Zeichnungen können noch viele Layer hinzu bringen.
Um die Übersicht zu behalten sollten deshalb nicht oder nicht mehr gebrauchte “Leere Layer” nach Fertigstellung (oder auch zwischendurch) der Zeichnung entfernt werden.
Diese herauszufinden gestaltet sich als sehr aufwendig weshalb ich eine Kennzeichnung der leeren Layer als sehr nützlich empfinden würde.

 587 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Library Browser / Favoriten Verwaltung ganze Ordner ein ...Closed

Es wäre hilfreich wenn man in der Favoriten Verwaltung des Library Browsers nicht nur einzelne Symbole sondern auch ganze Ordner hinzufügen könnte.

 589 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Total Length of selected entities komfortabler anzeigen ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Es wäre schön wenn die “Total Length of selected entities” etwas komfortabler angezeigt würde.

Ich arbeite meistens ohne “Command line”.
Benutze ich das “Info Tool” um die Total Length zu erhalten erhalte ich leider keinen Hinweis wo diese angezeigt wird.
Diese wird nur in der “Command line” angezeigt .... :-(

Zwei Lösungen könnte ich mir vorstellen:
1. Anzeige in der Zeichnung am Mauszeiger ...
2. Anzeige im Property Editor, Geometry, Length (dann natürlich Addiert) anstatt *VARIES*.

Die 2. Lösung halte ich persönlich als die elegante Variante da es eine logisch nachvollziehbare Aussage ist. Zudem erspart es einige Mausklicks auf dem Weg zum Infotool um die gewünschte Info zu bekommen.

Bemaßungen sollten, wenn sie nicht aufgelöst sind, ignoriert werden.

 590 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Sichtbar/Unsichtbar geschaltete Blöcke/Layer speicherba ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Ich habe versucht die Template Vorlage von Clive (danke dafür!) für meine Bedürfnisse anzupassen.

Clives Template:
http://www.ribbonsoft.com/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=1975

Für meine Templates benötige ich die Symbole der Projektionsmethode 1 UND die Projektionsmethode 3.

Deshalb habe ich jeweils einen Block für die Symbole entworfen welche in dem Template an der selben Stelle platziert sind und entsprechend ein- bzw. ausgeblendet werden sollen. Beim aufrufen des Templates soll natürlich einer der Blöcke bereits sichtbar sein.

Leider kann ich aber einen Unsichtbar geschalteten Block nicht als solches abspeichern was dazu führt das ich beim aufrufen des Templates mehrere Blöcke sichtbar übereinander habe. Layer kann ich als unsichtbar abspeichern.

Ich sehe sehr viele Verwendungen um mit sichtbaren/unsichtbaren Blöcken ein Template vorzubereiten. Da es mit Layern funktioniert denke ich mir sollte es auch mit Blöcken machbar sein.

Oder ist es ein Bug?

 591 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Library Browser - No Docking? Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,

There are a couple of things from QCAD2.2.2 to QCAD3 that work, but do not seem as fluent. Sorry if this has been reported, there are a lot of feature requests in German that I can not read!

We nearly always use a file library, which was accesible easily via a box in the corner of QCAD

1) The Library browser does not recollect the last open tab status and library selected, so each time you open it, you have to move back to the library.

2) As it opens as a separate window, each time I move away from QCAD and back its gone behind ala GIMP style. It would be much nicer if it was dockable.

3) It would be nice to have a refresh now, rather than a refresh next time it starts.

Also other bit if you want it

1) Key press Alt+F, A will highlight “Save As” but does not select it. I would have expected a SaveAs Dialog to come straight up

 592 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Kreis Punktfunktion erweitern auf Elemente ... Closed
100%
Task Description

Es wäre schön wenn ich einen Kreis zwischen Elemente platzieren könnte indem ich die Begrenzung nicht durch Punkte sondern durch Elemente angeben könnte. Eine Auswahl von 2-3 Elementen mit/ohne Radius soll den Kreis Geometrisch korrekt an die Begrenzungselemente anschließen lassen.
Hilfskonstruktionen oder der Umweg über Round RN (was allerdings nur bei geraden Linien funktionieren kann) würden dadurch entfallen.

Laienhaft könnte ich mir vorstellen das die Grundlage für diese Funktion bereits in der Round (RN) Funktion existiert ...

 607 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Warning needed Closed
100%
Task Description

When trying to Move an object to a layer that is locked nothing happens and no warning, so it difficult to figer out what is the reason.

The same happens when the default layer is locket. No way to add an object and no warning helps to understand what is going on.

A warning message should be displayed when such a situation occurs.

May be the default layer should never be locked.

[Edit: warnings are display in the command line history]

 611 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Align objects based on source / definition points Closed
100%
Task Description

Align objects with other objects.
- Specify 1st source point
- Specify 1st target point

Optional:
- Specify 2nd source point
- Specify 2nd target point

One pair of source / target points:
- Selection is moved

Two pairs of source / target points:
- Selection is moved and rotated

Three source / target points might be used to ‘tilt’ the object in addition to moving and rotating it.

 619 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Status bar - X,Y etc. input fields  Closed
100%
Task Description

It could be very useful to have in the status bar area - input fields for typing in X and Y position, Distance and Angle etc...

For example these could be used instead of entering absolute/relative coordinates in the command line.

1.Draw line.
2.Start point - enter in X Field.
3.Next point - enter in Y Field.

This method could also be used for specifying positions when placing other entities.

For me I tend to use a combination of the command line/GUI for most work but I think for those who do not wish to use the command line this could be useful.

Task Description

C++ plugin interface to add functionality from existing C / C++ libraries to QCAD.

 624 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Line pattern scale Closed
100%
Task Description

If we use a dash line type and set the overall linetype factor to 100 on a drawing (plan of 20metres x 20 metres approx) and then come to print it on A3, the linetype is not being scalled back from 20metres to suit the page extents.

So instead of lots of dashes we see just 2 strikes across the page. For now we set the linefactor low, which is good for printing, but now appears a solid line in the display unless we really zoom in.

 630 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Select entities by type Closed
100%
Task Description

please see:
http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=1177

from LeoP

” What would be really useful is a method to select entities by type, rather than by location or layer.

It could have a user interface like the snap command with buttons for the entity type to select, or like the line command with a drop-down box.

This would enable one to quickly select e.g. all texts in a drawing for subsequent attribute modification. Now one has to select each text individually if the texts are scattered over the drawing and layers...”

 632 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Text Höhe default in Application Preferences / Drawing  ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Es wäre Hilfreich für eine eigene durchgängige Standardisierung die möglichkeit zu haben Default Texthöhen in den Application/ Drawing Preferences vorgeben zu können.

Perfekt wäre in meinen Augen das man drei Texthöhen vorgeben könnte wie z.B. 2.5mm, 3.5mm, 5mm die bei der Eingabe von Text (oder beim editieren) per Schalter gewählt werden könnten. Das individuelle eingeben von Texthöhen sollte aber zudem beibehalten werden.

Bei der Bemaßung kann ich dies bereits jetzt für eine Texthöhe einrichten ... ;-)

 636 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow 64 bit compilation Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,

I’m using QCAD2 quite a while now and after moving from FreeBSD-i386 to FreeBSD-amd64 there are some libraries missing in the 32 bit version (libXi and some more).

I’d strongly suggest making a 64 bit compilation of the pro version. The community edition does compile and run on FBSD-amd64 very well.

Maybe ths would better be posted to the suggestion list of the upcoming version 3 ...

Thanks for attention!

 643 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Zooming mode of operation Closed
100%
Task Description

I just realized, that Zoom-in and Zoom-out (with the mousewheel) works different from graphical editors I know (as soon as drawing is larger than full screen).

Graphical editor (PSP X2 (and other too I think)):
Will make the position of the cursor the center of the drawing area. Thus allowing very fast to reposition the viewable area without changing into a move mode (Hand icon) and without the rulers on the left or down of the drawing area. The reposition is very handsome!
But this solution is only half way practical: If you use the wheel twice to zoom twice in sequence without moving the cursor, it will reposition the image twice - this double reposition is not practical at all, as the second reposition is rather random!

QCAD:
Lets the center unchanged and just zooms-in or Zooms-out.
.

My proposal:
- Zoom-in or Zoom-out around the current position of the cursor
- move this current position to the center of the screen
- move the cursor itself to the center of the screen (thus avoiding to shift the image again with a subsequent zoom-operation

  1. if the user uses a second zoom-op the new center remains mostly fixed. This would allow best of both solutions:
  2. but the user is free to make an other area of the drawing the new center if he actively moves the cursor again.

I think this would be very simple, intuitive and efficient to handle, reducing the need to reposition the drawing manually a lot.

Actually I think earlier version of graphical editors I used worked with were implemented that way.

Caveat:
I’m not an extensive CAD user. Maybe there are special requests for this type of work that are in contradiction to my idea. Maybe it would be practical to activate this type of zooming when used along with <ALT>. Hmmm - no: Allow original QCAD-zooming with <ALT>!

.

By the way:
Mouse right-click seems never assigned in QCAD. In Windows a user usually expects ‘Properties’ to be activated with right-click. But I think with the clever way you implemented this, there is no real need to change this. As the standard is already broken: Why not assign permanently a ‘Move’ (Hand icon) to ‘right-click’...

 654 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Text missing from dwg import (block attributes) Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi Andrew,

I am guessing this is an external library, but you maybe able to push it upstream.

Certain Autocad DWG files with embeded blocks fail to display text that was associated with them. For example see grid ref D.03 in the attached autocad drawing, the circles are terminals and should have nos in them.

Have tried exploding them in qcad etc, but nothing.

 656 QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery Low Data should not be in programs directory Closed
100%
Task Description

QCAD2 offered the user to specify in the program settings where these directories should be/go, and took the first one in each list as default; QCAD3 only offers to enter auxiliary library and template directories and has no provisions for defaults.

All associated data (scipts, templates, libraries, patterns, fonts) is stored under the program directory, exactly where it should not be. Windows 7 and higher default prevent modifying the programs directory by redirecting the writes.
An extra user-input during the Windows install process would be in order.

QCAD3 should offer the user to specify any and all data directories involved (including the auto save), and make it possible to specify a default for each.
This list could be initialised with the installation defaults, or default to the installation directories when empty.

 657 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Auto Zoom applied too often Closed
100%
Task Description

Auto Zoom should not be applied every time you go back and forth between editing a block and the main drawing.
At least, not by default: it just isn’t practical. QCAD2 didn’t do it...

 663 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow (de-)select by property Closed
100%
Task Description

It would be nice if one could
- select
- deselect from the current selection
all entities with a specific property, for example:
- all entities which are texts
- all entities with angle === 180
- all entities with color !== red
The current property editor has the perfect gui for it. On a similar gui one could change a value there which changes the selection instead of the properties of the selected entities.

I think there would be no need for “and” or “or”, if the current selection can be reduced or extended.

To have a tool that could convert splines to polylines would be useful, particularly for laser cutting work where a nice steady flow is needed, otherwise you can get an erratic ‘jumpy’ movement when cutting..
