3 Task Description

The 3dConnexion Space Navigator would be wonderful as a pan and zoom control. I find it extremely useful in SketchUp and when I switch from that to QCAD am always disappointed to find it doesn’t work.

While full support for the buttons and such would be nice, just the ability to map the axis to pan and zoom would be wonderful.

1567QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd support for separate windowAssigned
0%
2 Task Description

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.
That would help a lot when working on multiple files and copying blocks between.

1749QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd support for non-uniform block scalingAssigned

1 Task Description

Same txt as on the forum.
had a copy because i had to log in 3 times to remark my own post.

Blocks are no solution either.

see pdf
[attachment=0]Block test_1.pdf[/attachment]

Antartica is put in a block as segments.
Added a rounded corner as segments and as poly.
scaled X x0.5 Y x1 origin the center of the magenta circl.

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.

dxf part included

 1225 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow add support for circles, ellipses Closed
100%
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.

1647QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd point / dot option for leaders Assigned

Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Hopefully you might be able to squeeze this one around your busy schedule.

Would it be possible to add in the property editor an option to change a dimension arrow to a point / filled dot and maybe also a tick?

I see you are working on some viewport stuff, I am very much looking forward to testing some of this out ;).

Many thanks

Clive

823QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd Midpoint Handles to Lines and PolylinesAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

The Midpoint Handles should be used to move Polyline Segments and lines. This would add easy to access stretch functionality.
Combined with a shortcut(hold down shift or alt etc.) to fix the movement to be orthogonal to the line this would bring a lot of extra value.
It would also be possible to to have another shortcut to easily insert nodes to Polylines (again hold shift or alt etc.)

(sorry for duplicate task, cannot remove it now)

It would be nice if QCAD spit some kind of warning message when trying to render a layer with a name that doesn’t exist (and perhaps render nothing), rather than silently rendering an empty image. :D

1254QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd drop object along a path with automatic trimAssigned
0%
Task Description

Add drop object along a path with automatic trim.

  1. The object can be a selection before or after selecting the tool, an entity or a block.
  1. The path can be another entity from a start point to an end point.
  1. Dropping can be made on one side or the other (like in other tools depending on the side of the cursor), with a choice of miroring the object or not.
  1. The number of drops or the distance between can be selected.
  1. The distance can be between a control point of the object or its sysmetry axis or border.
  1. The dropping direction can be selected too.
  1. The droping depth can be constrained : all control points have passed the path, or one of them. Alternatively, replace control points by an entity belonging to the object.

Exemple of use case : equidistant drills in a curved rail. The dropping depth constraint enables for example to ensure a drill has a minimal depth when not orthogonal to a plan.

1100QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd drag dimension (snap) along dimension lineAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

In Autocad when making a dimension when left clicking to place the dimension there is the possibility to drag the dimension to either side of the dimension. This is also possible with Qcad dimension, but it losses the snapping and does not extend the dimension line out to the dimension text.

This is very useful when the two lines the needs a dimension are close together, or overlapping with another.

Attached is two images one for autocad and one for Qcad

 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.”

 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

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...)
