 1297 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Add context menu Closed
100%
Task Description

Optionally show context menu when right-mouse button is clicked on top of entity.

Originally from FS#1111: “Furthermore, the two named applications show that it’s easily possible to combine dragging (mouse pressed) and context menu (mouse clicked) on the same mouse button.
Providing a context menu would increase the usability especially for people used to Windows default applications.
I.e. deleting, copying, creating polylines from segments, breaking up blocks/polylines would be functions I’d find useful in a context menu.”

 2156 QCAD (main)SuggestionLow Add an option to XP preferences to include circles or n ...Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Andrew,
unrelated to any OS or version.

Circles do explode to polylines with two arc segments.
Discussed earlier and very correct because a full circle bulge would be a mathematical limit situation.

When there is no option to ‘Undo’ anymore or when the file was saved & loaded there is no easy way back.

One of the reasons why I isolate circle entities if I might going to use XP as in the file here:
https://qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=2155
Even knowing it, I still make more mistakes as I would like. ;-)

It would be nice to be able to exclude circle entities from the GUI explosion action XP.
Can be simply implemented in the top of Explode.explodeSelection with an extra preference in AppPrefs, default =true.

On the other hand, the explosions of circles used internally in various methods should remain.

Regards,
CVH

With a Mac (and no external mouse) there’s no middle button so it’s not possible to pan the 3D view (that’s what they tell me in the forum). It would be useful if one could use command-drag or control-drag to pan around the 3D view.

 1966 dwg2pdfFeature RequestHigh Add a new option to convert all blocks to pdfs Closed
100%
Task Description

Relative to https://www.ribbonsoft.com/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1965

I suggest that if dwg2pdf have an new options that can convert all the blocks to pdf.
Now, I need to know all the block names before converting.

But if I put qcad on server, the computer won’t know how many blocks in the dwg and their names.

For examples:

There are 4 blocks in dwg.block1, block2, block3, block4

Command line: ./dwg2pdf -block-all path

Result: block1.pdf block2.pdf block3.pdf block4.pdf

1 Task Description

I find myself with reasonable regularity needing to change the background color between black and white. It would be much more efficient to have a toggle button on the ribbon to make this sort of instant (kind of like the “screen based line types” button works but make it for background color and just between black and white or let people define their dark and light themes and toggle the background between the two.

 2283 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Add a "Select Similar " command Closed
100%
1 Task Description

As a heavy mechanical drawings user, it would help a lot to have an option to select similar entities while working on QCAD.

In the flow of the work, sometimes I need to make some changes in all similar entities of the drawing.

The Select Similar works selecting all the same items with the same layer on the drawing.

Example:

I have a drawing for other company and I have to make a massive layer changing to my own layers.

I select a line and circles with a box selection, activate the Select Similar command and the QCAD instantly selects all lines and circles(no matter length) with that same layer. I can then change the layer of all of them instantly.

Or if I have a peace with a lot of circles, that aren’t in a block, in one time I want to change the layer or diameter of all circles in a certain part of the drawing.

I select the circle and activate the Select Similar command, the QCAD automatically selects all circles with the same layer and I deselect the circles that I don’t want with a box desselection and change the layers of them, or the diameter via properties.. and etc.

There is a workaround, that would be working with activating or deactivating layers, but the select similar would be a faster shortcut.

Thanks Andrew and team!

2282QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd a "Save As" command while editing blocks in placeAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

As a heavy mechanical drawings user, it would help a lot to have an option to exit a block saving as a new name and making it a new entity from that time ahead.

Example: if a have a lot of screws, one of then is behind another peace and need the to have some lines changed to hidden style lines, in the flow of the work is great if I edit that screw in place and when exiting have the option to save as a new block, to don’t mess with other entities of the same block that I don’t want to change. Yes, there is a workaround that is duplicate and rename the block prior to the editing, but a save as seems to work easier.

Thanks Andrew and team!

1887dwg2bmpFeature RequestLowAdd "-max-lineweight" option for dwg2bmpAssigned
0%
2 Task Description

Hi there,

A friendly request to add the option to set a maximum lineweight for raster conversions via dwg2bmp.

Depending on the LW configuration of the CAD file, rasterization operations sometimes yield terrible results (see attachment). This would also mirror the similar “-min-lineweight” options available on “dwg2svg” and “dwg2pdf” (although not on “dwg2bmp”).

639QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAbility to load a file of keyboard shortcutsAssigned
0%
Task Description

It would be useful if a file of keyboard shortcuts to commands could be loaded.

Then a set of shortcuts identical/based on the Autocad keyboard shortcuts can be loaded, making it much easier for Autocad users to migrate to your product.

There does seem to be some future functionality planned here, with the shortcut ‘scheme’ selector in Program Preferences, but for the moment ‘Qcad’ is the only option available.

This strategy is used to great effect by Draftsight (but who trusts a big company like Dassault/Solidworks...)

Task Description

Hi,

I’m using QCAD2 quite a while now and after moving from FreeBSD-i386 to FreeBSD-amd64 there are some libraries missing in the 32 bit version (libXi and some more).

I’d strongly suggest making a 64 bit compilation of the pro version. The community edition does compile and run on FBSD-amd64 very well.

Maybe ths would better be posted to the suggestion list of the upcoming version 3 ...

Thanks for attention!

the config file reads

Task Description

It would be nice if one could
- select
- deselect from the current selection
all entities with a specific property, for example:
- all entities which are texts
- all entities with angle === 180
- all entities with color !== red
The current property editor has the perfect gui for it. On a similar gui one could change a value there which changes the selection instead of the properties of the selected entities.

I think there would be no need for “and” or “or”, if the current selection can be reduced or extended.

1 Task Description

This can be done as is in QCAD today, but a quick convenience UI bit would be much appreciated.

Suppose you are working off a bitmap image (transcribing old scan, or you got your apartment’s floor plan like this, because, uh, what tenant needs DXF). It has dimensions markers and everything, but fat chance it’ll be to actual CAD scale after importing.

So, to bring it to scale, you measure between two tick marks on the scale, compute ratio based on measurement and what’s written on the dimension line, and do a scale operation (you can also have QCAD compute the ratio by using math expression, whatever).

That works fine.

A purely just for convenience function to do that would be much appreciated: pick two points, enter what the actual distance between them is, poof bam, appropriate scaling operation is applied.

As a twist, there could be some other bitmap skewing options, like “the points I’ve selected are on a horizontal/vertical line/at an angle of X degrees, then the bitmap would also be applied this transform.

Task Description

Version 2.1:

Managed to use “Snap to grid” as the item was precisely 100mm or 120mm, but had it not been a precise multiple of 10mm there would have been a problem.

Thanks.

 1274 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow "Select Contour" selects every connected object Closed
100%
Task Description

Right now the “Select Contour” feature behaves like a “Select each and every connected line”.
I think that was not the intended purpose, so I report this as a bug.

I tested it on a honeycomb structure and instead of selecting just the outer contour it selected also every line inside the structure, which were connected to the contour.

1473QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow"Partial" circular/radial dimensionsAssigned
0%
Task Description

This is kind of related to FS#952, or rather a superset of it.

Consider the situation in the attached image. There is a perfectly good, albeit really shallow arc, making the radius somewhere in the vicinity of 600 millimeters, and the radial dimension being drawn accordingly.

Considering the other dimensions of the part, this is completely unusable, even to work with, really, but definitely so when it needs to be put on paper.

It would be nice to have some sort of “partial” (for my lack of a better word) radial/diametric dimensions where the dimension length can be adjusted.

Considering that this can be done with Leader, maybe a better (more generic) solution would be for Leader type dimensions to have options so they could automatically generate labels for various dimensions of a selected entity – sort of like having the Prefix/Tolerance/Scale options the other dimensions have, and have some additional fields there for selected entity and maybe dimension type (for example, radial or diametric for an arc-type entity).

 540 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low "pa" ("parallel") keycode triggers wrong action Closed
100%
Task Description

In the latest QCAD Community Edition source code (2.0.5.0-1-community), the wrong action is triggered for the “pa” keycode. Specifically, it triggers the basic draw line command. Here is the relevant code from qcadcmd/src/rs_commands.cpp, in RS_Commands::keycodeToAction:

  } else if (c==tr("li", "line")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;
  } else if (c==tr("pa", "parallel")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;

I believe this should instead be:

  } else if (c==tr("li", "line")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLine;
  } else if (c==tr("pa", "parallel")) {
      ret = RS2::ActionDrawLineParallel;

 1588 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow "hole" realisation Closed
100%
Task Description

Trying to design PCB with QCad (as hobby ;) I found an inconvenience with routing tracks through holes: I need end one line, snapped to the one edge of contact pad and start new line from other side of the pad, otherwise if line goes through the hole and covers it, hole disappears or becomes damaged; or I need to clean each hole of track parts before printing.

so, subject is: to define a certain area of white or background colour, so if any object (line or other shape) intersects it, it will be just invisible inside this area. they may still be visible, say, in draft mode.

I’ve been thinkig about simpliest way to make it, but not sure. Maybe it can be an additional property of the hatch, or it can be specific “background” solid colour, which can be applied to the hatch (apply this colour to other kind of object is not a good idea).

Then contact pad can be defined as shape with smaller round hatch inside to designate hole, so we can route lines, snapping them to the hole centers, not caring about clearing these holes later of little pieces of tracks.

Maybe it can be usefull :) Thanks for your great work!

 978 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow "Frequently used" items for text Closed

Task Description

Just floating an idea, recently I’ve had to use the diameter symbol many times in texts. At this moment it’s a chore, as that usually means browser, look for a page with symbol in it, copy, paste.

I wonder if the text entry could have some sort of a box for “frequently used” characters (or even phrases, or whatnot, but I presume a handful special characters that everyone can tailor to their needs would already be a huge plus)? Like, a 3×3 to 5×5 matrix below the Alignment panel or something along these lines.
