It is common practice in MDI apps to use the title of the active tab for the main window. Right now this is always “QCAD”. It would be better if it reflected the name of the drawing in the currently active tab.

1789QCAD (main)SuggestionLowApplication Preferences / General / Performance :0Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi Andrew,

we know that you need to have always software performance in your mind to decide which features / tools can / should be implemented and on which way.

I really appreciate your effort to find the best middle way between software features and performance but I think also it’s a tough call to appraise worldwide the overall customer equipment to make the software workable to the best for everybody. That isn’t possible without compromise.

Maybe it would make sense to think about a new dialog in the “Application Preferences” to let the user decide what kind of feature are absolutely needed regarding to his/her work-task / equipment. I don’t mean that you need to cover every single thing but the main “performance jeopardy’s” should be covered with an on/off switch.

Yes I know - that isn’t done in 5 minutes but I think that can make your life easier in the long run and will cover even more customer.

Just my two cents. ;)

100%
Task Description

Using two monitors where QCAD is on the left monitor with the right monitor being my laptop.
I close QCAD, then disconnect the second external monitor. If I now restart QCAD on just the laptop, it starts in a ‘virtual’ area as if the left monitor was still there. QCAD icon appears in the toolbar but there is no way to move the application back to the main screen.

 368 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Appearance preference Closed
100%
Task Description

RC1 is lazy in saving appearance to config. I noticed, because it always started with default window size. Maximizing was not carried over, also the panels were consistently reset.

Only when eg. dragging the handle to change cad-toolbar width not from preferences it would write an “appearance” section to the config file.

The appearance section should be written rather sooner than later.

It would be nice to have an additional Radius Measurement tool with short leads. The current Radius tool shows always the lead line to the center of the radius what is in many cases not useful.

 1680 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Alignment of text in attribute definition changes durin ...Closed
100%
Task Description

When defining block attributes, the default text alignment is center.

I changed this to align left and copied an attribute (ctrl + C) and then pasted (ctrl + V) fourteen times.

As I opened each one up with the editor to change the tag information, I noticed that every copied/pasted attribute definition had changed to align right.

I purposely set the first one back to align left and copy/pasted it a few times. Each paste had the attribute text set to align right again.

 1114 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow After Linux update: segfault at startup Closed
100%
Task Description

I’d try to use my qcad today, but cliking the qcad icon had no use. Opened an terminal window and executed whatever was in the icon properties, and it said segfault. Yesterday it worked. There have been an update inbetween, bash have been updated among others.

I’d have dumped uname -a to an file and enclosed it.

I’d have set the severity to critical, cause I’m not able to start qcad at all.

Please ask for any information you need.

Cincerely, Sigmund

Case:
Working on a Main Drawing, decide to edit a Block, start the editing process, close the editing process with “Return to Main drawing” and come back to the Main Drawing - but unfortunately to an absolute different View in the Main Drawing ...

It would be nice to come back to the same View (Zoom window) like before I started the editing procedure.

1933QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowAdvanced SVG export file overwrite check doesn't use up...Assigned
0%
Task Description

In the Advance SVG Export dialog, when I edit the filename to be different than the default file that already exists and then clear the checkbox for “Overwrite existing file without asking” just to make sure that I haven’t already created a file with the modified name as well, then I get a popup warning that the export would overwrite the default filename, not the name as edited. In other words, the overwrite check ignored the fact that I edited the filename.

Observed on MacOS Mojave (10.14), but probably applies to all.

100%
Task Description

We have already a powerful projection tool in QCAD - the Isometric tool.

It would be nice to have additional a “Dimetric tool” (Ratio 1:0.5:1, Angle 7°/42°) what is often used in the “Engineering world”.
It looks just more professional than the simple Isometric Projections and I’m pretty sure that could open a couple more Customer doors ;-)

829QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdditional options for the Info Tool Area ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

The Info Tool Polygonal Area is a helpful tool ... but I like to ask for additional options ;-)

Yes, the polygonal area makes absolute sense but many times you have just to check a square or rectangle area!

It would be nice and time (click) saving if we could use a “Strg Key” to limit the polygonal area to just a rectangle area.
Two mouse clicks for a rectangle area and done ;-)

In addition to that it would be nice to have the possibility to count up or down a couple areas.
E.g. I measure area 1 plus area 2 or area 1 minus area 2 ...
Maybe just with an additional keystroke like + or -

0%
2 Task Description

If I work in QCAD only with Toolbars (and not with the “Cad Tools” there is nowhere a Button to find for “Create Block from selection”.
If I have to create a Block based on a selection I have to work with the Menu or have to activate the Cad Tools.

But, if I look at the Blocklist menu there is a function (+) to add an empty Block. It would be nice to have this button working for both situation - empty Block or depending on a selection to “Create Block from selection”.

Or alternative an additional Button ... :-(

Anyway - in my opinion would that make the “Blocklist” complete. :-)

 214 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Adding dimensions to circles or arcs in a block Closed
100%
Task Description

In previous versions I was able to add a diametric dimension to an arc or circle that is part of a block in the overal drawing.
When I try this now, the pogram resonds “Entity is not an arc or circle” the radius dimension gives the same error.
This is unfortunate, because typically dimensions are on another layer in the overal drawing.

1645QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd warning when opening file with 3D contentAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi.

I’m working currently a lot with files coming from rhino. Qcad can open them properly any also most operations on them work as usual - except the selection methods.

box select from upper left to lower right works as usual.
double click to select all connected entities is broken. (only one entity is selected).
box select from lower right to upper left does not select entities touching the selection box. (nothing is selected)

on mac os nothing is selectable with single click.
on linux single click sometimes fails (nothing is selected after clicking on a line).

thanks for looking into this :)

1888dwg2bmpFeature RequestLowAdd support to disable hatch rendering on "dwg2bmp"Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi!

A friendly request to add an option to disable hatch rendering on “dwg2bmp” conversions.

Depending on the nature of the conversion and the density of the hatch, this may render unintelligible images (see attachments). The option could look like “-t, -nohatch” to indicate hatches should be hidden before rendering. This could potentially become an option too for “dwg2svg” or “dwg2pdf.”

Amazing product, thank you so much!

Hi, for multi-screen hosts it would be very useful to have additional windows while running the single QCad instance. Other applications like Palemoon, Evolution, Gimp are providing that already.

Antartica is put in a block as segments.
Added a rounded corner as segments and as poly.

The scaled version is all over the place.
Set them to color red, no use they stay black.

The reference of the block is 2000mm to the left because I tried it out far right of my design.
The cyan circle is about 400mm in diameter.

Task Description

The attached file should result in two overlapping circles, it does not, it results in a single ellipse.

The “<circle ... />” directive seems just be ignored in this case, but in other instances I have seen it result in ellipses.

And the “<ellipse ... />” directive should of course result in a circle, when rx and ry are the same.
