Task Description

Windows 7-64

Please see attached a simple test to demonstrate the problem.

Breakout tool

1. When selecting the top half of the circle - the top half of the circle ‘breaks’ out as expected.
2. When selecting the bottom half of the circle - the whole circle disappears!

Autotrim tool

1. When selecting the top half of the circle - the trim seems to work.

2. When selecting the bottom half of the circle - no trim happens at all!

 1040 DocumentationBug ReportLow Break out Manual on Circle/Ellipse does not respect Rem ...Closed
100%
Task Description

3.4.7 trial as well as community Git 9d3979

  • Draw a circle
  • B2
  • Make sure “Remove segment” is ticked
  • Select circle, then select two points to break out in between

Expected:

  • Segment gets removed (not really, but read on)

Actual:

  • Segment does not get removed, but circle is indeed broken into two arcs

Same for an ellipse.

I can see that by selecting two points on a closed circular shape it’s nigh impossible to tell which segment the user actually wants to remove :)

The documentation doesn’t mention this corner case. For clarity, a note detailing this effect a bit should be added to the docs.

On a slightly related note, I do not see why the feature couldn’t work on Polyline objects as well (with the same corner case restriction if it’s a closed polyline).

Very useful feature btw, thanks for it.

100%
Task Description

Loading any larger dxf file takes very long because of this line:
istr.imbue(std::locale(”C”));

The call to std::locale is very slow. File-loading can be speed up by approximately factor 5 times on my system when replacing it. I just removed that line and instead added the following in DL_Dxf::in so it is changed only once per file:

std::locale oldLocale = std::locale::global(std::locale(”C”)); // use dot in numbers
while (readDxfGroups(fp, creationInterface)) {}
std::locale::global(oldLocale);

Task Description

 1237 QCAD/CAMBug ReportMedium Blocks should be layer agnostic Closed
100%
Task Description

I have created a block from a selection. I have then later created more items on my CAD page using that block, then later yet, moved the objects to a new layer. I noticed that while the object has accepted being on the new layer, the color hasn’t changed to the new layer’s color. I can only get the line color to change if I go into the block itself and move the individual segments of the block to that new layer, then save the new block (which, by the way, I can’t save over the existing block?!?!)

In the sample file attached, you will see that the block item in the 3 o’clock position is in layer 0, while the rest are in “Vent Holes” layer. If you make layer 0 hidden, the one block is hidden (like it should), but the block item refuses to take on the layer’s color even though the block’s color is “By Layer”

Wouldn’t it be nice, if selecting a block in model view would somehow highlight (just like clicking a block in the list does) the selected block in the “Block List” window?

 748 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Blocks ... Closed
100%
Task Description

It would be nice ...

- to be able to use " and / in Block names what is really helpful in the Inch and Fraction world ... ;-)

- the ability to overwrite an existing Block what is often much easier/faster than editing a Block ;-)

- After selecting a Block you get the info of the Block name in the Property Editor (Geometry / Referenced Block).
If I need to edit this Block I have to go to the Block List - have to search for this name because it is not marked .... and of course it is a long long list.
It would be nice to have a “Edit this Block” Button in the Property Editor / Geometry / Referenced Block dialog ... ;-)

Task Description

Eine Zählfunktion die erfasst wie oft ein Block in einer Zeichnung vorhanden ist.

Hintergrund ist das es damit eine Unterstützung gäbe die das erstellen von Stücklisten etc. erleichtert würde.

Die Anzahl der Blöcke könnte z.B in der Block List eingeblendet werden wie z.B.: “Schraube M6x40 (17x)” oder auch in einer extra Text Liste.
Zudem könnten so auch nicht (oder nicht mehr) benutze Blöcke ermittelt werden wie z.B. “Schraube M6x20 (0x)” welche dann aus der Zeichnung entfernt werden könnten.

 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

Exemplo: “dormitory’ in portuguese is “dormitório” it’s appear like “DORMIT\U+00d3RIO” when file is opened on QCAD 3.16.x

1 Task Description

1) Open the attached dxf file
2) Right click on “vne_vent_odvod_ec_3f” block in Block list and select Copy block
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.
