 1030 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Block->Create Library Item Issue Closed
100%
Task Description

I create a number of library items to create parts assemblies..

I will build a component in a drawing that has other components in its own layer then isolate the component and only select it. I then use Block→Create Library Item to create a component, set it origin and save the item.. When I open the item, there apears to be a set of duplicate lines generated. I have to select all the components and do a detect duplicates then delete them before doing anything else with the drawing.. I found this issue by trying to create a cutaway view then adding a crosshatch. The crosshatch tool does not like lines on top of lines..

The characters in Portuguese such as “ç é â ... etc ...” are replaced by codes starting with version 3.16.x
Files created with versions of QCAD 3.15.x whose characters were correct in the Properties List when opened by QCAD 3.15.x appear in this strange way when opened in versions 3.16.x.
However, in the screen and in the extraction of the list of attributes the characters are correct.
Apparently the error only occurs in texts on the Block Properties List and Attributes.
However, you can use correctly the characters in a file created from version 3.16.x

1) Open the attached dxf file

3) Choose name
4) Insert reference of this Copy block to the modelspace
5) Save the file
6) Close and reopen the file

RESULT: Attributes of block references included in the original block are missing in the copied block.
Immediately after insertion of the copied block I can see in the property editor, that block reference attributes are not “conected” to the block reference, but they are still visible. They disappear when the file is reopen.

Alternative way I use to copy this kind of blocks without error: Open block I want to copy, Select all entities, reference copy of them, paste to modelspace, select them in modelspace and choose create block.

 580 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Black color reverted to white color on each close Closed
100%
Task Description

Hello,

When I started Q3, I selected a White background in the initial dialog window. I opened a copy of a good Q2 file and saw that ALL entities with Q2 Black/White color where forced to be White. Andrew explains this as a mean to avoid unreadable items against the background colors. Remember I selected White as background ? I guess Black/White entities could be better kept as Black ?

Following Andrew’s advice, in Application Preferences =⇒ Graphics View, I unchecked the Auto correct black and white colors check box. The background settings is white. OK.

I went through a process of changing the White color for several layers to Black. I also had to change the color codes for the hatch areas. For instance, the hatch area layer “055_F_Murs” has “14-76-255 / 255-197-179” values in Q2. Why these values are auto corrected to “30-128-255 / 255-191-127” ?

After these changes, I saved the file, closed Q3 and opened the file again.

Catastrophique ! All “Black/White” layers were back to Black and the hatch colors were back to the “auto corrected” values.

Changing the background color to black then white seemed to solve the problem : the layers kept the Black color. Actually it was just an illusion.

Yesterday too much confident, I spent the whole day, modifying layers to Black, adding new layers also Black or custom color, checking the line weight (replacing the “default” (?) value of 0.25 mm with my preferred default value of 0,00 mm, I’ve posted on the forum about this) and so on. I saved the file, closed it.
To-day, nearly all layers have lost their colors :
- Black ones are again White,
- custom color are “auto corrected” as above for “055_F_Murs”,
- only the standard non Black/White colors are preserved, like Blue, Magenta etc.

At this point, I can’t continue using QCAD 3 with enough reliability as my color settings are always lost. This is why I qualify this bug as CRITICAL.
I don’t want to use a Black background or a Light Blue one. Why do you think all old “green on black VDU” were replaced with “black/color on white” displays, to begin by Apple ?

NB I already reported this but can’t find it in the list (maybe because I forgot to enter a summary ? No warning, happily I had a copy with Notepad), sorry for the duplicate.

1080QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowBitmap export: calculate size based on bounding box inc...Assigned
0%
Task Description

I have created a drawing, where the CENTERS of the most outer lines have a distance of 3.06mm in both X and Y.
The line weight of these outer lines is 0.6mm, so the whole image is 3.06mm + 2* 0.6mm/2 = 3.12mm wide and long (center to center plus half of the line weight on every side).
Additionally in the export there is a frame around the image, making it 3.12 + 2*frame.
The export function however calculates 3.06mm when setting the resolution to 1000Pix/cm, so it does not include the line weights and the outer frame.

Layer ‘0’ has some special function. E.g. it can not be deleted, it will contain the data of undeleted layers.

By the way: I consider this to be better than no layer undelete. BUT: is there really not way for a true layer undelete...

Zooming in and out is lagging to the point of unusable. This is happening in a layout block with the cursor pointing inside geometry with hatches. When the cursor is pointing outside the geometry zooming works as expected.
The attached file has a very simplified testcase that shows this problem almost in the same way as a more complex drawing with multiple layers and hatches.

edit: I also attached the more complex drawing because it is a bit unclear to me where the lagging stops. Outside the viewport or outside the paper.

I just noticed the selection box has the same problem!
