 1932 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low Check for update fails to discover new version Closed
100%
Task Description

“Help→Check for QCAD Pro Updates” fails to discover new version. Tested on OSX and Linux versions.

 1933 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow File > Advanced SVG export: file overwrite check doesn' ...Closed
100%
Task Description

In the Advance SVG Export dialog, when I edit the filename to be different than the default file that already exists and then clear the checkbox for “Overwrite existing file without asking” just to make sure that I haven’t already created a file with the modified name as well, then I get a popup warning that the export would overwrite the default filename, not the name as edited. In other words, the overwrite check ignored the fact that I edited the filename.

Observed on MacOS Mojave (10.14), but probably applies to all.

 1935 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Startup preferences Closed

Task Description

Startup preferences

Check or uncheck “Enable Splash Screen”

1. Restart of QCAD, the splash screen with Initialising add-ons xx% is identical

2. Apply, Cancel and OK buttons - why have both Apply and OK buttons?

 1936 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow ver 3.23 not saving font information Closed
100%
Task Description

The attached file is not saving font preference.
All fonts on the online layer are reported as the standard font. If I highlight one or all of the text entities and change the font to something like Yu gothic light, the property page reports yu gothic light and the screen reflects the changed font.
If I save, close and reload, the fonts for all text is again “standard”.

So then I try to enter new text via the “A” draw text command icon. I select “Broadway.ttf” as the main font in the text entry dialog.
One word “Broadway” is entered as the text. it appears on the upper left of the screen as expected and the font name is Broadway in the property editor. If I look at the dxf file source there is a whole bunch of text styles.
I save and close the file, and then open it again. Now the word Broadway has changed to font name “standard” in the property editor and is very definitely not the Broadway.ttf font.

I am not the originator of the file, I am just trying to change the font. If I start a new file and enter new text the font saves just fine, so I am thinking it is a setting somewhere, but I am unable to find it.

We (me and my customers) use these files for engraving so exact font is critical.

The attached drawing shows two large concentric circles when viewed in QCAD but the inner circle is missing when viewed in other CAD programmes. This cost $50 in rework as my laser cutting was not cut correctly!

QCAD has unexpectedly quit.

Please use the offscreen platform plugin for headless systems
(without a running X11 server):
./qcad -platform offscreen

In addition, you might have to override the default Qt style
to prevent the loading of a native desktop style (such as GTK):
./qcad -style plastique

I have tested this in version 3.22.1 too and get the same result. Reverting all the way back to 3.13.1 results in an operable version of qcad when working on the same file and library blocks.

 1939 QCAD Community EditionBug ReportLow Right click not working in QCAD Community Edition Closed
100%
Task Description

After I remove the .dll files from the pro trial version, right click stop working on Windows 10.
I went a little further to try identifying which of the 5 files specifically causes right click to stop working, and I found that it is qcadproscripts.dll. The presence or absence of the other 4 dll files that make up the pro version has no influence on this behavior.

Task Description

QCAD Professional 3.23.0 is using en_US keyboard layout although I have a Finnish keyboard on Fedora 29. I have not found a way, how to chance the keyboard definition. In Fedora repositories there is QCAD Community Edition 3.22.1, and keyboard definitions there are working OK. Keyboard layout is following Gnu desktop keyboard selection and can be changed on the fly. Wrong keyboard layout makes working very hard, because almost all special keys are in different places, like colon, semicolon, plus, minus, parentheses, slash etc.

 1997 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow CAM > CAM Export: Fails for new document created Closed
100%
1 Task Description

When I create a simple drawing, I cannot export the gcode until I restart qcad.

general steps to reproduce the issue:
1. open a new drawing
2. Add a letter “D” near the origin in Arial font, about 7mm tall.
3. explode it
4. save the drawing
5. Fill in in the “cam configuration” 6. Select the drawing and generate the tool paths.
7. Hit the “export button” or the menu item.
8. Observe that you see the “camexport” command appears in the command section, but there is no file generated for the gcode.

If you restart qcad, then the gcode will export as expected. Also, it appears to work for more complicated drawings. I had the same issue, when I tried to generate the same thing, but using the string “November 2019” at 5mm height. I am using up to date MX Linux with kernel version 4.19.0. I also observed this behavior under Windows 10 professional.
