952QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDimensions: manually control arrow positionAssigned
0%
3 Task Description

See drawing: I can’t seem to be able to manually change to the “To” variants – that is, override the decision of the label/arrow placement engine.

The circle in the attachment is a borderline example of when even just in this form I would more like it on the outside. If the drawing is crowded in that area, it would be even more useful to have it the other way around.

Task Description

If the drawing unit is set to ‘feet’ and the dimension format is ‘architectural’ or ‘engineering’, the drawing unit should be implicitly regarded as inch for the purpose of calculating dimension values. Since QCAD uses the drawing unit, the dimension values are off by a factor of 12 when importing drawings from other products.

 1672 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dimension tool displays wrong meassurement Closed
100%
Task Description

Case:
Settings are:
General: Drawing Unit
Drawing Unit: Foot
Paper Unit: Inch
Measurement System: Imperial

Dimension Settings: Architectural

Issue:

I draw a horizontal line 12 units (foot) long,
Use then the Horizontal DIM tool and it will display a measurement of 1’ = false,

I draw a horizontal line of 2 units (foot)long,
Use then the Horizontal DIM tool and it will display a measurement of 2” = false,

I assume the input for the line length is handled from the DIM tool as inch and not as feet.

100%
Task Description

A nasty bug that I posted some time in the forum that prevents QCAD to read properly the content block associated with dimension.

Here’s what is happening:
- every dimension entity in DXF/DWG is stored with a block representing its contents (or in fact, anything else)
- QCAD ignores that block and instead renders the dimension using the various sizes and properties of the dimension

1488QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDimension text positionAssigned
0%
4 Task Description

This one is a really important one for me, as currently I am doing a lot of dimension and annotation drawings.
I would like to request an option to be added to the dimension settings for both drawing and application settings to be able to choose whether the dimension text is to the right or left side or over the top or underneath the dimension line.
This would help tremendously when a lot of dimensions are needed!

Regards

 971 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dimension properties: text position not saved Closed
100%
Task Description

When reopening a dxf that had the dimension text aligned differently than the default, the text position has the same X position for vertical dimensions and the same Y position for horizontal dimensions as the dimension line. In other words, changes to the text position are not saved or loaded when reopening a file.

For example:
1) Create the drawing and take a dimension measurement
Dimension Line on (X, Y): (110, 1680)
Text Position changed to (X, Y): (100, 1255)

2) Save file, close it and reopen it
Dimension Line on (X, Y): (110, 1680)
Text Position on (X, Y): (110, 1255)

The text height (in drawing preferences) is set to 15 and page printing scale is 1:5 (if it matters).

QCAD Professional 3.4.2.0 on Ubuntu 13.04. See the attached file for the program specs.

Not really a major bug, but quite irritating none the less. :)

100%
Task Description

Since updating to QCAD 3.16 on MacOS, my dimension font face suddenly changed to something very unattractive and I can’t figure out how to reset it. I tried deleting QCAD and all references to it in ~/Library and then reinstalling, but no luck. Something weird has gone wrong with QCAD’s fonts.

The font change has made it impossible to open and redraw many DXF files because the new font face is larger and wider spaced and it ruins the layout of many documents.

Attached is an example of what the same DXF file looked like in the prior QCAD version, and the new version. No change to the DXF file.

Task Description

This bugs me since a long time but I wasn’t able to reproduce it ..... till now!

My Dim Label font for new drawings (Application Preferences) is set to “Helvetica-Bold” Basically it was working just fine for new drawings but from time to time, after saving and reopen my drawing, the font was lost and replaced by “Standard”. No idea why!

Today I was playing with the new QCAD Feature “Default Template” and learned that I loose all the time my preselected font. QCAD ignores that my Template “Drawing Preferences” and also the “Application Preferences” are set to “Helvetica-Bold”. It will be replaced by “Standard”. Annoying! :-(

Ok, question was why it doesn’t happened with all drawings, all the time?
After many tests ....
The “old” blank Template opens with the correct font setting. If I use a Dim in the drawing and save it everything works as expected.
If I save the drawing without a Dim in it then the preselected Font will be replaced by “Standard”. It happens also if I delete all Dims in a so far proper working drawing - save and reopen it leads to the same issue. The Font will be replaced by “Standard”.

The new feature “your own Default Template” will not work regarding the Dim Label font in any cases - the template itself needs at least one Dim in the drawing to keep the desired Font.

Task Description

Community 3.15.5.3 (Git 9c49f08b), FreeBSD 10.3, Qt 5.5.1

Start the Dimension Leader tool, click a point. While the rubber line is active, click the “Arrow head” option to toggle it (the effect is seen on the rubber line immediately). Now click it again to toggle. The entire dimension disappears with no appreciable trace left anywhere. The DL tool stays active.

Expected outcome would be for the dimension to just toggle the arrow head style.

This only seems to happen if this double-toggling is done as long as no segment is actually created yet (i.e. once at least one segment is actually set, the repeated toggling works as expected).

To reproduce:

  3. Move that dimension’s text to a new position.
  4. DC, continue that dimension.


The text of the continued dimension will show up on top of that of the base dimension. Expected behaviour would be that it would show up on top of the continued dimension (standard placement).

 1792 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dimension > Angular: transformations broken Closed
100%
2 Task Description

(I originally described the problem in the forum: https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=5721 )
(The problem was also reproduced by user “Husky” so it not installation specific.)

I have a model where one of the details is as shown in attachment 1

However, when I create a viewport and display the part in the the layout the angular measurement is another. See attachment 2.

In the model it should be noted that the part displayed is a detail copied with a different scale as to Zoom in on a detail in order to put dimensions on it. It was created by copying a part of the model and pasting it back in the model but with 3x zoom.

I have also included the full .dxf file in the hope that it helps you both reproduce and fix this issue

Note: The same problem seems to also produce “ghostlines” in other viewports in the layout which is not present in the model. Removing the angular measurement also removed the ghostline. You can observe the issue by looking at layout2 and you can see a line (dimension layer) going from top right corner of the viewport towards the lower left. This line is not present in the model and appears to be some strange extension to the angular dimension the detail that is just to the top right in the model.

The square symbol offered as symbol in DIM label is the only symbol which doesn’t adopt the layer color.

1934QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDiametric text - overlaidAssigned
0%
Task Description

Diametric text is always placed above a horizontal measurement.

I often want to indicate both the inside and outside diameter of an object e.g. a wheel using diametric text. The text is overlaid and illegible.

To avoid text overlapping, I use Horizontal Aligned because I can control the position of the text to avoid illegible text.

A better method would be to alternate the placement of diametric text (alternatively) above and below a measurement so that in the majority of cases an overlap would be avoided.

Similarly for a vertical measurement, the text is overlaid and illegible.

When the angle is almost vertical, the angle controls the side the text appears however it also reverses the direction of the text (which is logical but not attractive).

Kind regards
Simon

100%
Task Description

Linux Fedora 21, kde 4.14.7, QCAD version 3.9.4. QCAD Pro add-on and QCAD/CAM add-on disabled.

Clicking on ‘Save As’ or ‘Open’, even when showing an empty drawing, freezes the program. A dialog shows up, but is completely grayed out. QCAD then stops responding completely (so far for about an hour), and has to be killed.

In the process, a warning shows up in the terminal:
Warning: KGlobal::locale(): Warning your global KLocale is being recreated with a valid main component instead of a fake component, this usually means you tried to call i18n related functions before your main component was created. You should not do that since it most likely will not work

(’Open Recent’ and ‘Save’ does seem to work, and can (presently) be used as kind of a workaround, since I’m only working on one file at the moment.)

1 Task Description

Hi,

With the new block attribute feature available in QCAD 3.3, there’s little to be done in order to make QCAD a good environment for typesetting circuits and other diagrams. In particular, the only killer feature that lasts is support for connectors: orthogonal lines that connecting one endpoint to another creates a connection line; when the concerned entities are moved the connection line is re-arranged. I’d like to know whether commercial support for this feature is available.
