 1518 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low Landscape/Portrait gets confused for custom page size Closed
100%
Task Description

Hello

In the Print Preview or Drawing Preferences / Page Settings if I select a Custom size, then landscape/portrait does not really make sense.

For instance, at work we have a laser cutter which uses a printer driver. The bed of the laser is 600 wide by 300 high. When I wanted to cut
something, I created a custom page size of 600×300 and selected Landscape (because it is wider than high)

Strangely, back in the Print Preview, the page is now sized opposite with regards to Portrait / Landscape mode, which was confusing somewhat.

(see pictures attached)

I think that for ‘Custom’ page size in Drawing Preferences, the option of Portrait or Landscape should probably be ghosted

Then, I think that for Portrait / Landscape mode in the Print Preview, it should display the shape most appropriate, rather than just assuming that the document fits the norm:

  1. Taller than Wide for Portrait mode
  2. Wider than Tall for Landscape mode

Print Preview off/on or launching/canceling Drawing Preferences will solve the display issue.

 1660 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low Draw > Viewport > Add Viewport: viewport in model space Closed

Task Description

... I have the feeling that wasn’t the idea. I’m correct?

Case:
in Model Space, launch Add Viewport, determine the Viewport rectangle - when done QCAD will switch to a Layout Block.
Now in Layout Block, don’t(!) place the Viewport, switch back to Model Space and the Viewport is still attached to the Mouse pointer and you can place it in your Model Space. The source of the Viewport will then disappear.

 1668 QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Low Text color of command line unreadable with KDE's Breeze ...Closed
100%
Task Description

I prefer the Breeze Dark color scheme as it find it less stressful on my eyes, however it’s unusable with QCAD where the Command Line prompts and responses are rendered as a very light grey on a white background. I believe the proper fix would be one (or both) of:

  • Make the Command Line area background follow the desktop scheme. (It appears that the text already does so, hence the light text, but since the background doesn’t it becomes unusable.)
  • Provide a configuration option for the text and/or background color used in the Command Line area.

Screen shots are attached showing both Breeze and Breeze Dark schemes.

Case:
1. Open some drawing with viewport entities on layout block (paper scace). Print Preview mode is “On” automatically.
2. Switch to “Black/White Mode” from toolbar and move cursor on “Viewport” enteties. This entitie is not highlighted. With other enteties all works as expected.
In “Full Color Mode” and “Grayscale Mode” no problems.

For example can try on “flange.dxf”

 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

Not served with the degration to ‘Suggestion’  FS#1759 .

If I create a new block it won’t work in a new drawing nor in the old test drawing - no chance to snap to the Block Reference.

Task Description

My data files are stored on network shares (synology) with a GB link. QCAD Pro is run in Admin mode.

While in my Windows browser all remote shares are accessible (Green), in the QCAD file open menu they are initially shown as not accessible (Red). By accessing a specific drawing file in a remote share, the share will open and turn green.

Same behavior using ‘Open recent’. Always the message is given that the requested file does not exist, and the file is wiped from the ‘Recent Open’ list. Only if the share is first accessed through ‘Open’ with a random file, it will turn and a ‘recent open’ file for that share will open.

Drag and Drop from a remote share will never work.

0%
Task Description

Win7pro 32bit Qcad 3.23.0

Andrew,
The Arc segments of Polylines with Global or any Local Width render faulty where Global Z or any of the arc’s local Z is not zero.

In the attached drawing setting the Global Z of the inner poly to 5,10,...

The setting of Z to not zero affects the radius of the projected arc and not the bulging of the poly.
It also affects the projected widths of the line inversely, but not by changing the widths properties.

Pritty rare combination! True.
Qcad is 2D native! True.

Flatten will resolve this.

It is not a purely visual rendering fault, the poly will explode as such.

Maybe similar flaw as with uneven scaling blocks with arcs.
