 1625 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Copy Layer Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,

often I’m in the situation that I have to create an additional Layer mostly based on the settings from an already existing Layer. Just a question of organization. This new Layer has then everything identical except the name and one(?) Attribute. This could be that only the color or the Line weight deviates.

Example:

Existing Layer

Layer name: Lot 47 area existing

Attributes

Color: Red

Lineweight: 0.35

Linetype: Dashed


New Layer

Layer name: Lot 47 area proposal

Attributes

Color: Blue

Lineweight: 0.35

Linetype: Dashed

Unfortunately if done manually it happens in an blink of an eye that the human imperfection (me!) makes a mistake and (e.g.) a “Center (.5x)” finds it way into the Linetype Field instead of a “Center (.2x)” .... :-(

The workaround for a few User is to use in cases like this the Property Editor / General Property and customize single Attributes. In my opinion the first step to lose the control over your own drawing ...

A “Copy Layer” / Copy Layer Attributes” function would speed up this task and eliminate to a minimum the “human imperfection” factor.

I could imagine that a right click (like copy block) on the Layer triggers the “Add Layer” function and the dialog is already prefigured with the Settings of the Source Layer ...... ready for editing.
The new Layer itself is “empty” like any other new Layer.

0%
Task Description

Hi Andrew,

1. I cannot find a way of selecting individual dimensions and changing the precision lets say from 0.00 to 0.000 for these particular dimensions only without affecting all the rest of the dimensions in the drawing - could an option be added for doing this in the property editor or not?

2. Would it be possible to add an option in the drawing preferences so that automatically a symbol is added at the correct placement fo all dimensions, in this case a tolerance plus/minus symbol?

Many thanks

Clive

 1643 ECMAScriptFeature RequestLow Modify > Explode: make drawing order predictable Closed
100%
Task Description

Usecase:
Multiple entities ( for example polylines ) get exploded...

BUG:
the exploded lines have all the same drawing ids the old entities had, a consequence of this is that when one explodes and then exports to dxf file the line order get’s scrambled wildly
the exported order is “random”!

SUGGESTED FIX:
sort the selected entities by their id first then
after copying attributes ⇒ also set the order of the elements to the default order !
( see fix in sourcecode attached )

1645QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd warning when opening file with 3D contentAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi.

I’m working currently a lot with files coming from rhino. Qcad can open them properly any also most operations on them work as usual - except the selection methods.

box select from upper left to lower right works as usual.
double click to select all connected entities is broken. (only one entity is selected).
box select from lower right to upper left does not select entities touching the selection box. (nothing is selected)

on mac os nothing is selectable with single click.
on linux single click sometimes fails (nothing is selected after clicking on a line).

thanks for looking into this :)

Hi Andrew,

Hopefully you might be able to squeeze this one around your busy schedule.

Would it be possible to add in the property editor an option to change a dimension arrow to a point / filled dot and maybe also a tick?

I see you are working on some viewport stuff, I am very much looking forward to testing some of this out ;).

Many thanks

1681QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAuto-dimensioningAssigned
0%
Task Description

You can apply the command to Lines, PolyLine segments, Arcs, Circles, and Rings:

For linear entities parallel to an axis of the coordinate system, aligned Dimensions (parallel Dimensions) are created. For linear entities not parallel to an axis of the coordinate system, either aligned Dimensions (measuring the absolute distance between two points) or horizontal or vertical Dimensions (measuring the horizontal or vertical distance between two points) depending on where you move the pointer are created.

For curved entities, you can create radial, diameter, linear, angular, and arc length Dimensions.

To dimension entities:

Click Dimension > Auto (or type AutoDimension).
In the graphics area, select an entity to dimension.
Click to place the dimension line.
To use another dimension type for Circles or Arcs, specify an option:
Diameter. Creates a diameter Dimension.
Radial. Creates a radial Dimension for an Arc or Circle.
Linear. Creates a linear Dimension of the diameter of a Circle or an aligned, horizontal, or vertical Dimension between the end points of an Arc.
Angular. Dimensions the angle between the end points of an Arc.
Arc length. Dimensions an Arc length.
Note: The chosen option is the default the next time you use the AutoDimension command.

When you move the pointer during a linear dimensioning, you can:
Lock. Determines the current dimension type (aligned, horizontal, or vertical) regardless where you move the pointer.
Unlock. Unlocks the type of linear dimension used.
Press Enter.

***
In short, when you use this tool you click on an entity and it will know what dimension you’re looking for. For Circles, you can specify in the command window R or D for Radius or Diameter.
This would be extremely useful on large drawings where a lot of dimensioning is to be done. One tool and start clicking on entities for dimensioning.

 1708 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Layer > Select Layer: add feedback Closed
100%
Task Description

Win 7
Q-CAD 3.19.2

R-Click in Layer list
With a selection, selecting by Layer adds the Items on that Layer to the selection.
With a selection, deselecting by Layer subtracts the Items on that Layer from the selection.
This is not a bug in casu because this can be the intention of the function. Adding or Subtracting.

Intuitively ‘selecting by Layer’ to retrict to that Layer solely has only the desired effect if no selection existed before.
Deselecting by Layer with no previous selection should mention there was none to start with.
Selecting by Layer from an empty Layer should mention that nothing is added.

Faults are prone to make.

Selecting a Layer uniquely would be an interesting additional feature.

 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

If I use the test drawing which I posted in 2013 ( FS#843 ) it works still as expected after it was fixed.

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.

100%
Task Description

QCAD seems either to mishandle or ignore svg group transformations altogether.

Importing the attached file into QCAD renders the largest polygon (polygon18) to be rotated and misplaced. This is shown in actual.png. The expected result (original Inkscape renedering) is shown in expected.png.

Looking at the code of the original drawing it can be observed there is a transformation applied to the group which polygon18 is in:

 <g
   style="stroke-width:0.35433099;stroke-miterlimit:4;stroke-dasharray:none"
   id="g20"
   transform="rotate(-90,316.66796,298.95141)" >
   <path
      inkscape:connector-curvature="0"
      id="polygon18"
      d="..." />

Removing the ‘transform’ attribute produces virtually identical (erroneous) rendering in Inkscape as well.

1870QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Stretch tool / option to turn selection restriction on...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

since 3.19.2 the Stretch tool looks for any selection and follows the specification “Only stretch selected entities if there is a selection”.

That is a nice feature but it leads many times to confusing because I have to deselect a selection just because I need to use the stretch tool on something else on the fly. The same if I “forgot” a selection outside of my zoom which is still important for me. The stretch tool just won’t work without any message why not. My routine now is that I terminate every selection just before I use the stretch tool just not to be surprised by “why isn’t it working”?

It would be nice to have in the Stretch option bar a checkbox to turn the “only selection feature” on or off. QCAD should remember that setting.

1877QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowPost Processor TutorialAssigned

Task Description

Hallo Andrew,

I am still busy on the never ending G-code story. Doing so I wrote a small Post Processor Tutorial for all those nerds who wants to write their own. If you like it you might add it to QCAD. However, since English is not my native tongue I suggest checking it would be wise.

Meanwhile I have downloaded the source code, and could not find the CAM’s Drill-path-script. I am now using a negative Drill Cut Depth to set a Laser Dwell time, were as a field “Dwell Time (in seconds)” in the Drill-path would be more appropiate. Is this script open source available or is it part of ‘closed part’ of QCAD?
