Task Description

I use a font that changes the characters of latin and greek to technical symbols.
http://www.fontspace.com/micronus/y145m-2009 The font is installed and working okee.
But in the text tool → special characters button → others I expect to see this modified character map but instead I see the standard unicode characters.
When I use a gtk tool gucharmap I can see the character map as expected.
Now it is really combersome to enter the special characters.

525QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowchange the printed symbol of pointsAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

in QCAD3 RC2 points were printed as crosses, in QCAD3 RC4 they are printed as (very little) points. I think this isn’t a bug but a feature. ;-)

It would be nice if one could change this behaviour / select the symbol of points.

Best regards - Stefan

0%
Task Description

Change a quote value modify the drawing + link quotes with entities

In other words, makes quotes editable AND linked to entities.

  • Today in the properties, the value is read only. Being able to edit the value would modify the linked entity properties to fit the new quote.
  • Changing a property would change the linked quotes accordingly. Today, if I change a circle diameter which is quoted, the quote remain where it was and is no more relevant.

1469QCAD (main)SuggestionLowCartouche automatiqueAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Would not it be possible to create a kind of template for printing?
We draw our room without cartridge. The cartridge will automatically appear when printed. The scaling could be automatic so that it goes in the A4 and therefore also will post the scale automatically. The name of the play could be the file name, date last saved after it the rest of the information that would be to add somehow (material index, designer, ...).

Original suggestion:

Bonjour,

Ne serait il pas possible de créer une sorte de template lors de l’impression ?
On dessine notre pièce sans cartouche. Le cartouche s’affiche automatiquement lors de son impression. La mise à l’échelle pourrais être automatique pour que ca rentre dans le A4 et donc l’échelle s’afficherai aussi en automatique. Le nom de la pièce pourrais être le nom du fichier, la date du dernier enregistrement après c’est le reste des infos qui serait à ajouter je ne sais comment (matière, indice, dessinateur, ...).

 1286 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh Canvas flickers/flashes white when scrolling. Closed
100%
Task Description

When scrolling quickly, the entire canvas flashes white (some kind of video buffer issue?). This includes the rulers, but excludes the scroll bars and the corner fillet at the top-left between the two rulers. Frequency of flicker is linked to speed too - the more you scroll the fast the flicker.

I’ve marked the severity high - obviously this is not a functional problem, but the strobe effect is causing headaches and may have negative affects for people with illnesses triggered by flashing light. Even with the background set to white, the flashing is still severe - when the background is set to black, it’s unbearable.

Using a Mac Pro (10.10.3) with AMD FirePro D300 2048 MB graphics and dual displays. Happens on either of the displays. Was using an August 2013 build with the issue - just upgraded to latest build and have same issue. Didn’t experience this on previous/older Mac Pro (running 10.8), so suspect it’s an issue with hardware or OS version?

2021QCAD (main)Performance IssueVery LowCannot work with big dwg filesAssigned
0%
Task Description

Openning a big file or doing any action in it, takes minutes to load.
Even dragging the scrollbar slightly left or right, takes mintues to redraw the canvas again, which makes QCAD un-usable for professional use.
Is there a way to make QCAD usable, after loading completed:
- Like suppressing edit until user says so,
- or taking snapshots of rendered canvases to another file and use it, as windows uses thumb.db ( for negative latency :P )

PS: I wish I could help a bit, but my hand are tied. I am just a java freak, I am opt to any idea of porting it to java, if she is still alive.

I can’t print from Q-cad in Win 10 latest update. Q-cad says it has sent it to the printer but does not print.

 1357 QCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Can't open files with special characters in their names Closed
100%
Task Description

When opening a .dxf file saved by QCAD with a name containing a special characters (tested with diacritics), it fails with the following message:

Cannot open file
'E:/tèst1.dxf'
Import failed.

How to reproduce:
1 - Save a file (content doesn’t matter, it’s the same with an empty file and a file containing data) using the name “tèst1.dxf” 2 - Try to open the file
3 - Error message

What is expected:
The file open.

Note that the problem doesn’t lie in the “save” step: the same file, once renamed to “test1.dxf” opens fine.

 556 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Can't change entity's layer by double-click Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,

One thing not in the v3 (but in the v2) is the ability to assign a layer to an entity by double click on the layer name (in the layers list)

On V 2 :
1 - Select entity
2 - Double click on the layer’s name

> then le entity is in this layer

On V 3 :
1 - Select entity
2 - Double click on the layer’s name

> nothing change

It’s useful to change it by this way, please make it possible in v3.

 1867 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Can you provided a worked example for scripting (I can' ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Please can you provided a worked example for scripting (I can’t find anything similar in the Help/Book)?

I have a 2D drawing that has a segmented circle that is divided into 12/16/20 segments etc.

I want to show this in a side 2D view e.g. there are 6/8/10 segments visible to fill in a rectangle.

I can manually calculate the distance to draw vertical “fill” lines by calculating the angle of the end of each segment. With the option to rotate the position of the lines by half/third of a segment.

A simple example with only 2 segments visible, it’s 0, 50% and 100%.
With 4 segments, it’s tan(22.5), tan(45), -tan(45) and 90 degrees that’s approximately 41%, 50%, 59% and 100%.

So the task, is to receive the coordinates of the area e.g. a rectangle, divide the rectangle into unequal smaller rectangles.

I imagine that a 3D program can do this, but I want to do something similar. Perhaps this is more easily applied - I’m new to CAD and QCAD.

 1820 QCAD/CAMBug ReportMedium CAM Export: exporting text entities broken Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Kubuntu, QCAD/CAM 3.21.3

Font Standard. Selected as ‘single line’ font for engraving with mill or laser.

While CAM Exporting as G-code Laser (Offset) MM, or as Linux CNC, Exporting gets trapped in a loop.

In Font Standard the glyph’s ? & $ @ s S Q and 2 contains unwanted Z-movements. It seems these glyphs entities are not alligned properly; endpoint last line does not meet startpoint next line; why else the Z-movements?

Could this misallignment also traps Exporting?
