 1625 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Copy Layer Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,

often I’m in the situation that I have to create an additional Layer mostly based on the settings from an already existing Layer. Just a question of organization. This new Layer has then everything identical except the name and one(?) Attribute. This could be that only the color or the Line weight deviates.

Example:

Existing Layer

Layer name: Lot 47 area existing

Attributes

Color: Red

Lineweight: 0.35

Linetype: Dashed


New Layer

Layer name: Lot 47 area proposal

Attributes

Color: Blue

Lineweight: 0.35

Linetype: Dashed

Unfortunately if done manually it happens in an blink of an eye that the human imperfection (me!) makes a mistake and (e.g.) a “Center (.5x)” finds it way into the Linetype Field instead of a “Center (.2x)” .... :-(

The workaround for a few User is to use in cases like this the Property Editor / General Property and customize single Attributes. In my opinion the first step to lose the control over your own drawing ...

A “Copy Layer” / Copy Layer Attributes” function would speed up this task and eliminate to a minimum the “human imperfection” factor.

I could imagine that a right click (like copy block) on the Layer triggers the “Add Layer” function and the dialog is already prefigured with the Settings of the Source Layer ...... ready for editing.
The new Layer itself is “empty” like any other new Layer.

 1643 ECMAScriptFeature RequestLow Modify > Explode: make drawing order predictable Closed
100%
Task Description

Usecase:
Multiple entities ( for example polylines ) get exploded...

BUG:
the exploded lines have all the same drawing ids the old entities had, a consequence of this is that when one explodes and then exports to dxf file the line order get’s scrambled wildly
the exported order is “random”!

SUGGESTED FIX:
sort the selected entities by their id first then
after copying attributes ⇒ also set the order of the elements to the default order !
( see fix in sourcecode attached )

 1648 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Uniform Layer listing in dropdown as in Layer List Widg ...Closed

Uniformity can shorten lookup time drastically with a large number of layers / sublayers.

 1650 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Option to remember / configure specific folder to save  ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Option to remember / configure specific folder to save to when creating a library block.

Currently every time I want to create a library item I have to navigate to where I want to save the block - unless this is a bug and not working properly? I set the library path and re-started QCAD, but it doesn’t seem to work for me now!

 1654 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Edit > Convert Drawing Unit: convert viewports Closed
100%
Task Description

Converting the Drawing unit (CU) in Model Space will ruin all preexisting Viewport arrangements in your Layout Block. You have to rebuilt them from stretch or undo the unit conversion.

 1708 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Layer > Select Layer: add feedback Closed
100%
Task Description

Win 7
Q-CAD 3.19.2

R-Click in Layer list
With a selection, selecting by Layer adds the Items on that Layer to the selection.
With a selection, deselecting by Layer subtracts the Items on that Layer from the selection.
This is not a bug in casu because this can be the intention of the function. Adding or Subtracting.

Intuitively ‘selecting by Layer’ to retrict to that Layer solely has only the desired effect if no selection existed before.
Deselecting by Layer with no previous selection should mention there was none to start with.
Selecting by Layer from an empty Layer should mention that nothing is added.

Faults are prone to make.

Selecting a Layer uniquely would be an interesting additional feature.

 1709 QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery Low Feature request: Add extra padding to textbox. Closed
100%
Task Description

When placing text on a drawing you are offered with the choice of where you want the origin of the textbox to be. That’s very nice. Image 1 shows an example of text with top left origin. It seems there is already some top padding above the text.

Unfortunately there is no option to add extra padding to the other sides so the text is right to the left border of the textbox. To correct this you have to add some parallel construction lines and move the text a bit to the right. Now the text has nice padding. See image 2.

It would be nice to have some padding options when adding/editing text, like in web-design: https://www.w3schools.com/css/css_padding.asp

Blocks are no solution either.

see pdf

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.

 1764 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Zoom in with middle click Closed
100%
1 Task Description

I would suggest adding a feature Inkscape has, which is that a single middle click zooms in. This is not at the detriment of panning, since the mouse/pen (I use a Wacom tablet) doesn’t move. Right now middle click doesn’t do anything so I don’t think it should be a problem.

Another awesome and related Inkscape zooming feature is that Shift+middle click shifts to window zooming. But with the added bonus that you don’t lose the tool you’re in. Try it out on Inkscape if I’m not clear!

Cheers,
JFL

Task Description

Hi,

as I saw in the svg file and tried it, the ‘stroke-dasharray’ parameter needed (with values) to show the line same as in the editor.

Example:
...

 1856 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow SVG import: add support for rotate transformations with ...Closed
100%
Task Description

QCAD seems either to mishandle or ignore svg group transformations altogether.

Importing the attached file into QCAD renders the largest polygon (polygon18) to be rotated and misplaced. This is shown in actual.png. The expected result (original Inkscape renedering) is shown in expected.png.

Looking at the code of the original drawing it can be observed there is a transformation applied to the group which polygon18 is in:

 <g
   style="stroke-width:0.35433099;stroke-miterlimit:4;stroke-dasharray:none"
   id="g20"
   transform="rotate(-90,316.66796,298.95141)" >
   <path
      inkscape:connector-curvature="0"
      id="polygon18"
      d="..." />

Removing the ‘transform’ attribute produces virtually identical (erroneous) rendering in Inkscape as well.

Task Description

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

 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

 1981 QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLow I would like an external post processor Closed
100%
Task Description

I use gcode ripper for some of my jobs. (see here: https://www.scorchworks.com/Gcoderipper/gcoderipper.html) This is a large python script that I use to wrap flat code around a cylinder for engraving. What I would like to see is a way to run it from my own custom post processor that I wrote for my machine. Maybe some kind of keyword that allows me to specify an arbitrary external command with some parameters. It would be very helpful to me. I create a lot of ad-hock jobs to run.

Thanks,
Chuck Tilbury

Why Remember Function:
If I use a postfix like <>” in the postfix field I’m only able to use it for this particular dimension type at this time. If I change the type (from Horizontal to vertical or what ever) I have always to repeat my postfix. The same with tolerances.
