 2263 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low dwg2svg -min-lineweight option parsing broken Closed
100%
Task Description

The parsing for the -min-lineweight option of dwg2svg is broken, only -w or the undocumented -minlineweight options work.

This is due to a typo in the Dwg2Svg.js script around line 225:

      properties["minLineweight"] = getArgument(args, "-w", "-min-lineweight");
      if (isNull(properties["minlineweight"])) {
          properties["minLineweight"] = getArgument(args, "-w", "-minlineweight");
      }

This should be:

      properties["minLineweight"] = getArgument(args, "-w", "-min-lineweight");
      if (isNull(properties["minLineweight"])) {
          properties["minLineweight"] = getArgument(args, "-w", "-minlineweight");
      }

Note the case minlineweight vs minLineweight.

This has the consequence that the value parsed form -min-lineweight is always replaced with the value from -minlineweight, which is usually undefined.

Since the short option -w is parsed in both cases, it is not affected from the bug.

Compiler: Unknown

Andrew,
While enhancing DrawFromCSV: Forum Link.
I had a peek at the new command line tool: dwg2csv

I would never come up with 115 columns.
That wouldn’t be efficient to generate entities from.
Although this way it is very complete and one could use specific lists to filter.
One downside is that the ‘-list’ switch return is far too vast for the windows command line.



Remarked that:
Only the first alphabetically custom property is listed under:
QCAD:Line & QCAD:Reference (columns 114-115).
And that the last encountered is persistent for all entities that follows.

Maybe this originates from a multiple entity selection ...
... what also retains the last encountered custom properties in the property editor.
Should I add a seperate task for that?



Also had an exception thrown:
Debug: dropped global XDATA (no res buf): “ViewportCenter”.
Discarted that as this very basic test drawing hasn’t even a Viewport.

Regards,
CVH

 561 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dropdown list with black lines Closed
100%
Task Description

Hello,
Just installed Q3rc5 with Win7.64 bits.French. To report bugs, I wanted to change my interface user language from French to English.
Using menu “Edit” =⇒ “Application preferences” =⇒ “Language settings” =⇒ “Language”, I notice that the dropdown list (combo box) is hard to decipher as all lines are with black text on a black background. Only the current value is shown with white text on a blue background.

Moving the cursor up and down reveals the other values. After navigating in the list, all values can be read. Going to another item in the Settings and then back to the Language settings : all lines can be read.
Closing the setting and opening it again, the same dropdown list has again all entries in black but the current selected value in blue.

NB: Searches for “dropdown”, “combo”, “selection” etc returned no related task.

The original file is A5.dwg. I’m using QCAD professional 3.23.0. A5.pdf is converted by command line tool dwg2pdf.
I found the drawing problem in it. See the attachment file problem.png.

As you see, I write down 3 bugs in problem.png.

1. bug 1. The position of ‘green 90’ is wrong.
2. bug 2. The line width is too large. You can see dot in A5.dwg, but a line in A5.pdf.
3. bug 3. The ‘green 42’ is missing.

Thank you very much for your help!

 1000 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Drawing prefs/Printing/Colors behaves oddly Closed
100%
Task Description

Both community and Git head, on Linux and FreeBSD.

Not sure how to describe the odd behaviour... Draw something with a couple of colors, turn on Print preview, then modify Drawing prefs/Print/Colors/Color mode several times, setting it to a different mode than what it is currently, Apply, OK.

What happens is sometimes it doesn’t change (that is, the next time this preference is opened, it is still at Full Color even if I have just clicked, applied and OK’d Grayscale etc.).

Further, it seems that the selection is not reflected at the print preview view, or rather, it is off by one – if I finally manage to switch to Grayscale, it stays Full Color. Then if I somehow manage to switch to Black/white, the print preview changes to Grayscale etc.

I can try to make a screen movie if necessary.

 2075 QCAD (main)SuggestionLow Draw order bug after insert bit map Closed
100%
Task Description

First post, so please excuse if I missed some forum rules etc...

I insert bit maps and trace over them to create DXF files for laser cutting burnout templates. If the edge of the bit map is coincident with a line I have drawn, it is not possible to select the line for offsetting, trimming etc. This is regardless of the draw order or handle number. It seems to happen most if the edge of the image and line are coincident with the X or Y origin. I also use fairly fat lines to make it easy to see. My default line width is 1mm. Not sure if that affects selection or not, but fatter lines don’t help the issue at hand.

Steps to reproduce...
insert bitmap at 0,0
draw horizontal and vertical lines starting at 0,0. (my lines are usually longer than the edges of the bitmap.
try to select one of the lines for offsetting. (Select the line in the area of the bitmap. There is no problem selecting the line where it extends past the edge of the bitmap.)

It does not matter if I insert the bitmap first and then draw lines, or draw lines first, insert bitmap and then change the draw order so the lines are on top. It is also not consistent on which axis is affected. It is usually both X & Y, but sometimes just one or the other.

Workaround is select the bitmap, then move it by 0.001 in any direction. Now the edges are no longer coincident and you can select your lines. The alternate workaround is to insert the image on another layer and then turn that layer off when you need to select a line on the edge of the bitmap.

 1660 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low Draw > Viewport > Add Viewport: viewport in model space Closed

Task Description

... I have the feeling that wasn’t the idea. I’m correct?

Case:
in Model Space, launch Add Viewport, determine the Viewport rectangle - when done QCAD will switch to a Layout Block.
Now in Layout Block, don’t(!) place the Viewport, switch back to Model Space and the Viewport is still attached to the Mouse pointer and you can place it in your Model Space. The source of the Viewport will then disappear.

100%
Task Description

Hi,
When a hatch have been offset in the Model then it appears incorrectly when rendered in a Viewport. It seems that in Viewports the hatch Origin value is not taken into consideration. This means that when adjusting a hatch in the Model to look correct (align along a line for example). This alignment is off in the Viewport.

See screenshots and attached test dxf file in this thread on the forum: https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=6742

Edit: After looking more into this issue is seems it is the Viewport’s position that is ignored when transforming the pattern into Viewport space. See the following gif:

https://i.imgur.com/vD8cOuC.gif

Above it can be seen that that pattern is always rendered in ‘worldspace’ since the pattern is static (the pattern is not moved when the viewport is moved around)
