0%
Task Description

I use CTRL + I to pull up drawing preferences. Upon changing the dimension settings quickly and closing it normally by pressing enter it closes. But if i go to the next tab (drawing tab) then press enter to load it up quickly instead of pressing CTRL + I. Upon changing the dimensions settings and pressing enter to close it, it won’t close but instead flash and i have to keep pressing enter and eventually it closes.

I think this is a bug.

I have the Pro Version

2289QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowVertical Line Tool stops accepting inputAssigned
0%
Task Description

When using the vertical line tool, you can enter a length value in the options toolbar, then place the line. If you want to change the length, you just need to enter a new value and the length field will update. However, there seem to be cases where after 10-20 entries, the focus goes off the length field in the options toolbar, requiring the user to bring focus back to continue. I could not seem to duplicate this behavior with the horizontal line tool.

0%
1 Task Description

I have set the grid/snap value to X=.0625 Y=.0625 on all 4 viewports.
When zooming in and out the grid/snap scale changes from .0625 to 3.90625. at this point the grid/snap points differ,
This causes a variation in the grid/snap reference points lending to drawing errors.

example
When I use the grid settings defaults .01, when zooming in and out, the grid/snap scaling doesn’t seem to have this issue.
Other values do, See below.

set value first zoom second zoom next zoom

	point		point		point ...	

0.01 0.1 1.0 10.0 ...
0.02 0.04 0.4 4.0 ...
0.04 0.16 1.6 16.0 ...
0.05 0.25 2.5 25.0 ...

0.0254 0.64516 6.4516 64.516 ...

Why is there a squaring of the original set value? Which then becomes a new zoomed grid/snap value?

Task Description

Hello, I am not sure if this is a bug or if I use it wrong way. But when I create block with two identical block attributes everything look ok. I Can insert it to drawing, set the value (both will change). But when I use “Synchronize attribute (UY)”, only one will stay. It would be fine if both would stay. But I understand that you probably use tag as identification.

To reproduce the problem just open the attached file and press UY

 2280 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dimension arrows not filled Closed

Task Description

Version QCAD 3.26.4.7 / Windows x86_64

Existing drawing:

1. e.g. flange.dxf loads with no fills (solid hatch) for arrows,
2. New dimension are also without arrow fills.
3. This existing drawing has Text above line! Setting Drawing Preferences / Dim to “Horizontal text labels” will alter Text to be Horizontal BUT also open a gap for the text which is a separate setting (Text above dimension Line). Undo doesn’t works on this properly - used multiple times will even change the dim color which wasn’t changed in this operation.

New drawing:

1. Same test scenario - same issue.
2. Dim settings = Horizontal text Labels ticked, Text above dimension Line ticked produces a dim horizontal orientated with a gap instead to put the text above the line

 2267 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow In-place block editing: some block references not faded Closed
100%
Task Description

I noticed a bug while editing blocks in place. When I opt to edit in place, most of the surrounding blocks fade out properly, but some don’t. Although I can’t edit them, as they are not faded, It can be tricky to identify what is in the current block or not while editing a bigger assembly.

Another suggestion is to add a keyboard shortcut command to the “save and close”.

Otherwise, this is a fantastic feature that really enabled me to buy the QCAD and start using it professionally. In place editings are a key feature for my projects and drawings.

Thanks in advance.

IMG 1 shows my drawing

IMG 2 shows a block being edited “not in place”

IMG 3 shows a surrouding block being edited “not it place”

IMG 4 and 5 shows the in place edit of the block shown in IMG 2 and the surrouding blocks not being properly faded.

QCAD/CAM 3.26.4 crashes at startup (just disappears) if setting “EnableHierarchicalLayers” to “false” in QCAD3.ini (Section: [LayerListPro]) on Windows.

 2263 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low dwg2svg -min-lineweight option parsing broken Closed
100%
Task Description

The parsing for the -min-lineweight option of dwg2svg is broken, only -w or the undocumented -minlineweight options work.

This is due to a typo in the Dwg2Svg.js script around line 225:

      properties["minLineweight"] = getArgument(args, "-w", "-min-lineweight");
      if (isNull(properties["minlineweight"])) {
          properties["minLineweight"] = getArgument(args, "-w", "-minlineweight");
      }

This should be:

      properties["minLineweight"] = getArgument(args, "-w", "-min-lineweight");
      if (isNull(properties["minLineweight"])) {
          properties["minLineweight"] = getArgument(args, "-w", "-minlineweight");
      }

Note the case minlineweight vs minLineweight.

This has the consequence that the value parsed form -min-lineweight is always replaced with the value from -minlineweight, which is usually undefined.

Since the short option -w is parsed in both cases, it is not affected from the bug.

Andrew,

Seen in al previous versions that I know of.
To recreate and merely as an example:
With:
- A polyline entity on a layer ‘polyline’ (notLocked - notFrozen - Visible)
- A hidden layer ‘exploded’ (notLocked - notFrozen - notVisible)

- Select the polyline .. DP .. XP » duplicated polyline explosion in selection.
- Set the selection its layer to ‘exploded’ by a double click in the Layer List or by Property Editor.
- Hide layer ‘polyline’ by toggling its visibility.
- Unhide layer ‘exploded’ by toggling its visibility.

The explosion is still in a dark red color.

Task Description

Andrew,

With an RPolyline shape.
That is trimmed by RPolyline.trimEndPoint(cutPoint1, RVector.invalid, false);
And what is turned into a null-shape having only one single vertex.
Getting the end orientation of such a shape lead to an Application Crach.

RPolyline.getDirection1(); Doesn’t fail and returns 0.0rad.
RPolyline.getDirection2(); Fails critical.

I would have expected 0.0rad or ‘undefined’ for both.

One can circumvent that with simply testing the nature of the RPolyline before getting the end direction, and this each time required.

CVH

Task Description

Text that has been applied to a drawing with the ‘bold’ attribute sometimes appears as regular, un-bolded, text. When increasing the viewing magnification one will see the text adopt the bold attribute, but at smaller sizes the text appears without the bold. This can be confusing causing the draftsman to double-check whether the text had the bold attribute.

Current version: 3.26.2

Previous version: 3.22.1 (note: in this version, bolded text appeared bold at all viewing magnifications.)

I just updated my QCAD to 3.26.2.0 (3.26.2) version and lost the hability to edit block attributes of my sheet or in any other block.

When I open the block, the attribute is there and is all set in the Specific Properties, but when I exit to the Model Space to edit the Attribute text, the created attributes don’t appear on Specific Properties tab.

The use of block attributes in sheets, balloon or any block that contains text is very necessary.
