 264 QCAD (main)Feature RequestMedium Support for "Layouts" (paper space, viewport) Closed
100%
25 Task Description

There is one important ACAD feature that I would really like to see supported in QCAD3 and that is “Layouts”

Looking at the block lists, it seems to me that it can’t be too much extra work to support it, since the model space and different paper spaces are already shown there - and one can edit it.

QCAD draws infinitely easier than ACAD and drawing layouts is a primary feature of ACAD. With this in QCAD I can hardly see why anyone that does 2D work would need ACAD at all.

 1164 QCAD (main)Feature RequestMedium make selected layer default parent for new layer Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Hello!

I would like to suggest a small, but yet important improvement to usabilty.

When adding a new layer the currently selected layer should be default for parent layer.

Currently a new layer is by default a top level layer, and so the user has to select the parent layer for each sub-layer, again and again.

Thanks,
Christian

 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

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);

 1662 QCAD (main)Performance IssueLow Select > Select Contour: slow for complex drawings Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi!

when working with files containing many not connected elements (non-poly-line elements) a double click can cause a coffee-break easily. The search for connected entities easily takes over 5 minutes on an up to date machine ([email protected]) with files that are pretty standard in size (2 or 3 MB file size ascii dxf). Adding an interruption-method would be suitable (for example by pressing escape).

attached a file with a polyline of 13000 entities and a second file with just everything duplicated. When exploding the polyline and double clicking an element it takes quite a while until all elements are selected. (this is not an extreme example, I had sometimes 10 minutes of waiting with slightly bigger files, accidently double clicking something).

also an improved algorithm for the search would help to speed up the selection. (e.g. divide the area in smaller parts, do the search there, or an option to search only in the visible view port of the document)

 1056 QCAD (main)RefactoringVery Low Dead and wrong code in RSPlatform.cpp Closed

I am considering pushing the following diff:

 #endif

(truncated list to manage size)

I see that most of this was put in there as a kind of a note-to-self originally, however _SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN is implemented by every realistically possible targets anyway, so for all practical purposes, this is dead weight.

A couple of questions remain, though:

  • #ifdef Q_OS_WIN32 should probably be Q_OS_WIN, so as to include win64 as well.
  • Assuming the real purpose for this function is to determine how many parts a particular task is to be split into in the future, if and when QCAD gets the need to split expensive tasks among multiple CPUS, “core” probably shouldn’t be static - CPUs are hot-pluggable today, and while one probably doesn’t do that on a laptop, it’s not unfeasible in, say, a VDI environment.

Thoughts?

 137 QCAD (main)RefactoringLow SVG Export precision Closed
100%
Task Description

In files exported with the (even PG) exporter I sometimes see values like these: 334.99999999999994 or 570.0000000000001 and very often 12 digits of precision.

To safe on file size, I suggest, that QCAD rounds values on SVG export to eg. three places. When viewed in an ordinary web browser, that will result in a precision of 1 inch / 96dpi / 1000 = 0.00026mm, not? Ends should still meet.

 138 QCAD (main)RefactoringLow SVG Export entity properties "By Layer" and "By Block" Closed
100%
Task Description

If I understand correctly, SVG export uses svg groups to keep QCAD block entities. This in itself is very useful. There is no way to correctly keep layer information, as QCAD blocks can contain elements on different layers, while SVG only knows about groups. That is a deficiency of SVG.

To save on file size, there was some potential to get rid of ever repeating same attributes on entities, eg: style=”stroke:#000000;stroke-width:0.25;stroke-dasharray:2.16,1.08”

To optimize “By Block” is easy: just set the attribute on the SVG group, and omit on below entities styled “By Block”.

To optimize “By Layer” is a little more involved, but might be solved by using css:
- Create a class by the name of the Layer
- add the class attribute to elements styled “By Layer”

Then only individually styled entities would get a style attribute, and filesize of SVG could be halved in most cases.

This just an idea :) Having written this, I now realize, that QCAD can style weight, pattern, color each extra, so the optimazition could only be applied to entities, where everything is “By Layer” or “By Block”. But that should be the case most of the time.
