Task Description

The coordiantes (in the lower left corner) freeze while mouse is moving. Updates as soon as the mouse is stopped.

This slows me down considerably. I have to stop, wait (too see the coordinates), move, stop, wait, move back, stop, wait, move, stop wait... This gotta be a bug?

 683 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Convert Spline to Polyline tool Closed
100%
Task Description

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..
Maybe a ‘two’ step procedure;
1.First convert to arc/line segments.
2. Then if needed convert to a continuous polyline.

 1089 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow Convert polyline from segments on locked layers deletes ...Closed
100%
1 Task Description

If you select (line) segments in a visible yet locked layer and choose “convert segments to polyline” (OG), the segments are deleted, but inserting the polyline fails.
So you can easily destroy locked layers by mistake which contradicts the idea of locking layers.

Arctic_Eddie reports failing CAM offset at exactly these points !!!
Reported is a faulty arc with radius of over 360,000mm.
- I can not reproduce this under QCAD working further on the Polys with NaNs.
- However the direct offset of such controlpoint Splines is erroneous.
(see file in post 30902)

Arctic_Eddie reports arc radii of over 10,000mm.
- These don’t seem to be faulty.
- I agree that BiArc fitting should be bound to a lower and certainly to an upper limit.
- That should be huge otherwise faint curvature is represented by many
wobbles or too quick by straight lines.
(All this, keeping in mind that QCAD doesn’t return the optimum fitted BiArc, see: https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=4859)

1368QCAD (main)SuggestionLowContext Menu - suggestionsAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

I love using the context menu, speeding up my workflow indeed.

I would like to suggest that we have the added option to show only icons if desired and also that maybe an option to save and show commonly used tools!

Maybe the context menu could be configurable to show two columns, one for the normal last used tools and the othjer one for the user saved tools?

What do you think?

1705QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowConnect certain actions and layersAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

When dimensioning my drawings I always want the dimensions to be on the dimensions layer.
When adding text I want the text to be on the text layer.
When drawing an infinite line it is always a construction line, therefore I want it to be on the construction line layer.
When drawing a line segment it almost always is on my outline layer.

So I propose a new option to bind certain actions to certain layers.
Whenever those actions are selected the layer should automatically be switched.

I can imagine this being implemented in the General→Tool Settings menu, where the short cuts are defined.

Hello,

since 3.17.1 (also on 3.17.2.0) it’s impossible to insert “@” in commandline, so it’s impossible to work with relative coordinates in all funktions like rectangle, line etc.
Please do a fast Bugfix, I need that functionality for workflow urgently :-)

Many times, after pressing the space bar to access the command line, accidentally an space character is added at the start of the line. It’s very difficult to see it.

The request is for the command line parser to just ignore leading spaces.

Thank you.

 761 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Colour Indicators for Layer List Closed
100%
3 Task Description

Layers are great for organizing a project. For construction lines alone I sometimes use 3 and more layers. And then there are more layers for each part I design. Each with its own colour.

And when a project gets bigger I start wishing for a quick overview in the layer list to the colours I use on them. So I wish for colour indicators on the layer list to quickly identify the membership of a line to a layer.

I have a small image attached to make you see, what I mean.
