 1006 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Making zoom in / out speed configurable Closed
100%
2 Task Description

Although this report is specific to Magic Mouse on OS-X Mountain Lion, since mice are a fairly common commodity across all platforms, I suspect this may be a more common issue across multiple platforms. The issue is that with my Magic Mouse, when I zoom into or out of the drawing by dragging my finger forward or backward on the mouse (equivalent of rolling the scroll wheel of a mechanical mouse), the zoom keeps zooming (in either direction) LONG after I have stopped moving my finger! Now, I do have my scroll speed set high because I have a large monitor and like to get around on it fast. But QCAD is the only application that does this exaggerated scrolling, so there must be some missing conversion or time constant issue going on here. I could change the speed of my mouse and that would likely fix it: in QCAD. But then all my other apps would be too slow with the mouse. Maybe there needs to be a custom setting in the Preferences that allows to user to set the mouse speed for just inside QCAD. But I suspect its more just a mouse speed parameter conversion error.

 1015 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow To add Point Style options Closed
100%
2 Task Description

I use points in my drawing s often for referencing and construction purposes, I would like to request that in the application settings some options could be added for point styles.
For example:
Style - cross with circle or other styles useful for temporary construction referencing.
The option to set the size either relative to the screen or indeed in absolute units.

1027QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRectangle with a 3 point determination ...Assigned
0%
2 Task Description

Many times I’m faced with the situation that I have to use a rectangle related to other entities. Dimensions/Angle = unknown.

We have in QCAD a rectangle tool with a two point diagonal determination but this is limited to two points and it will only work in a horizontal and vertical direction.

My feature request is based on the idea to draw a rectangle with 3 points - regardless the angle.

1. First point: start

2. second point: determination of the first side (width?) and it will also provide the angle for the rectangle

3. third point: determination second side (height?)

I’m asking for an additional new tool? No - just as an option to the existing rectangle tool ...

2 Task Description

When double clicking on an entry in the layer list just nothing happens.
I would prefer if this would directly open the layer attributes dialog to change color/name etc.

For some tools like the Horizontal or vertical line, it would be good to have button options (similar to infinite and ray line buttons) instead of the drop down menus.

Now - after enjoying the great new “Scale” option for Dimensioning I like to ask for the same scale option for the “Info tools”.
It would be really nice to have more flexibility (without a pocket-calculator) in reading and displaying the Info tool results.

1302QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowIsometric projection on the current layerAssigned
0%
2 Task Description

It would be very useful to have the same possibility for Isometric projection like the Paste tool etc.. An option which ask me to put a new Isometric projection on the current layer is right now missing. If I like to have this new Isometric Projection on a different layer I have to reselect the projection and move it to that layer. That is plain inconvenient.

1362QCAD (main)Feature RequestLownew layer tool: Toggle visibility allAssigned
0%
2 Task Description

Hi,

I use a lot of “temp” layer to keep my drawing organized during a design session. Ad the end of the day (or week or month ...) I need to get rid of this “garbage” but unfortunately there is no easy way to delete all this layer in one go.
Most of the time those layer are invisible. The “important layer” are visible. If I could toggle all layer from visible in invisible in one go with a switch like “Toggle visible layer all” and then use “Select all” / delete / Purge unused layer I’m able do get rid of this stuff with just a few clicks.

The same tool would help to improve the workflow in the case that I just have to switch between all visible / invisible layer for testing / double checking / cleaning or what ever. Currently I have to toggle every single layer to get this done and if I work with many layer I need to have a perfect working memory (or a piece of paper with many notes!) to be able to restore the same desired working order.

And I’m confident - there are many more useful scenarios for a tool like this one ... ;-)

New Tool request:

When drawing a line it would be good to have a tool/option to ‘run parallel with’.

For example start to draw a line and choose ‘run parallel with’, select appropriate line to draw parallel with!

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.

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”).

Having practically no experience in scripting, a recorder that one could activate to memorize repetitive tasks (ie: inserting several layers with different attributes when starting a new drawing)would a useful tool to help get a start on scripting.

704QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOld Hatch FunctionAssigned
0%
3 Task Description

It would be nice to implement the old hatch function as a tile function in parallel with the newer more industry standard hatch function. A tile function that would allow overlap +/- would be even better, and a great productivity boost, almost like an array within a set of bounds.

Thanks, Bob

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.

 761 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Colour Indicators for Layer List Closed
100%
3 Task Description

Layers are great for organizing a project. For construction lines alone I sometimes use 3 and more layers. And then there are more layers for each part I design. Each with its own colour.

And when a project gets bigger I start wishing for a quick overview in the layer list to the colours I use on them. So I wish for colour indicators on the layer list to quickly identify the membership of a line to a layer.

I have a small image attached to make you see, what I mean.

766QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLayer List: Add "Lock All Layers"Assigned
0%
3 Task Description

To improve useability/efficiency I would like to propose the following changes/additions to the layer list:

1) Combining the show and hide button into one button.

Clicking once will hide all layers, clicking again will show them all again.

2) A “lock/unlock” button.

Clicking once will lock all layers, clicking again will unlock them all again.

Regarding the icons I suggest that instead of show both the black and grey version of the eye/lock, you could switch between them depending on the state the switch-button is in. Also the mouse-over-text could/should change with the state.

952QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDimensions: manually control arrow positionAssigned
0%
3 Task Description

See drawing: I can’t seem to be able to manually change to the “To” variants – that is, override the decision of the label/arrow placement engine.

The circle in the attachment is a borderline example of when even just in this form I would more like it on the outside. If the drawing is crowded in that area, it would be even more useful to have it the other way around.

1488QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDimension text positionAssigned
0%
3 Task Description

This one is a really important one for me, as currently I am doing a lot of dimension and annotation drawings.
I would like to request an option to be added to the dimension settings for both drawing and application settings to be able to choose whether the dimension text is to the right or left side or over the top or underneath the dimension line.
This would help tremendously when a lot of dimensions are needed!

Regards

With dxflib, QCAD cannot open any file with Chinese file name or path name, it popups a “Important Error” dialog.
But the writing (”Save As” command) with Chinese file name or path name is of no problem.
Does it mean dxflib can only handle single byte characters file name/path name?

It would be great if the user could choose a default template for new drawings.

There exists already a “File → New from Template” feature, where I can choose a template, but in most cases I want my new drawings to be based on my default template.
It would be very convenient if there is an option to set the default template and use it for the “File → New” function.
