 1142 QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLow Distance Entry in "Feet and Inches" Closed
100%
1 Task Description

I use architectural units everyday in QCAD and would appreciate being able to enter feet and inches from the “command line” for convenience and accuracy.

I have been entering “calculations” to arrive at the distance values (i.e. 10*12+6.125 = 10’-6 1/8”), but this method is time consuming and prone to input error.

I would like to see Acad’s architectural distance method implemented in QCAD. This entry method would replace the “calculated” entry with (as an example): 10’6-1/8.

Command Line: Next point: 10’6-1/8
The <’> mark triggers a 12 times multiplier for the proceeding number,
the next number is the whole inches and
the ↔ is a separator that adds the fraction to the whole inches before it.

Thanks for considering this feature request. I’m certain that many QCAD users in the Architectural, Mechanical, Electrical and Construction professions wold appreciate this convenience (especially those moving past Acad).

 482 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Disproportionate scaling of blocks Closed

Task Description

Block with hatch scaled with factor in X different from factor in Y leads to problems if contour contains arcs (which cannot / are not scaled disproportionally).

... doesn’t works proper at circles and ellipses.

Circles: the scale works only proportional even though I have the options for x and y.
Ellipses: The same but if I play around with the x, y fields it will freeze the scale possibility.

 252 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Displayed line thickness too thick. Closed
100%
Task Description

This manifestation happened after I had loaded an existing drawing, made modifications, then used print preview and adjusted the scale to fit the paper.

The file was closed. Upon reopening lines designated as .25mm were unusually thick such that two lines 2mm apart appeared as one solid line. Placing the cursor over the line showed it was comprised of two lines.

Changing the properties of a line to make it thinner did not help with one exception and that was to set the line thickness to default, when the two lines became visible.

 1065 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Display artifact with Ray/XLine Closed
100%
Task Description

Git d0eaf0, Linux/FreeBSD, Qt 4.8

Start up QCAD, *do not pan or change zoom level*. Draw a Ray or an XLine so that it (its extension, in case of Ray) goes through (0,0) and is 45 degrees (ie. draw y = x).

In this case and this case only, the Ray/XLine will be reduced to a line segment exactly between its start- and end points. It seems that this is only a visual artifact: if you pan or zoom now, the segment will be restored to what it’s supposed to be.

If you change zoom/pan back to what it was at startup, the artifact re-manifests itself.

Some flashes indicate that there are some other positions, not just the initial view, that also bring this up (ie. if you pan to a specific position, artifact appears again; it’s probably deterministic, too, but I can’t seem to be able to stop at that exact point while panning so I could count or something).

Task Description

A window with a drawing that has unsafed changes gets an asterisk appended to its name in the tab title. When there too many tabs the title gets shortened and the star cannot be seen then.

It was nice, when the star remained visible, after or in front of the ellipses.

Also it was nice, when the “windows” menu would mark files with changes in the same way.

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.

Issue:

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.

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

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!

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).

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

Version QCAD 3.26.4.7 / Windows x86_64

Existing drawing:

1. e.g. flange.dxf loads with no fills (solid hatch) for arrows,
2. New dimension are also without arrow fills.
3. This existing drawing has Text above line! Setting Drawing Preferences / Dim to “Horizontal text labels” will alter Text to be Horizontal BUT also open a gap for the text which is a separate setting (Text above dimension Line). Undo doesn’t works on this properly - used multiple times will even change the dim color which wasn’t changed in this operation.

New drawing:

1. Same test scenario - same issue.
2. Dim settings = Horizontal text Labels ticked, Text above dimension Line ticked produces a dim horizontal orientated with a gap instead to put the text above the line
