 1076 QCAD/CAMBug ReportHigh Crash on Mac OS X when using internal Trackpad Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Hi,

I have just updated my Mac OS from 10.9.2 to 10.9.4. QCAD 3.6.2 seems to be working normally under the newest version of Mac OS, but has developed a very specific bug which leads to reproducible crashes when a text object is edited.

Steps to minimally reproduce:
1. Open QCAD
2. Create a text object
3. Place the text object on the canvas
4. double-click the text object and edit its contents
5. click OK to accept changes
6. repeat from step 4 three or four times.

After several attempts to edit a text object, QCAD will crash with EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGBUS) in thread 0 (QCoreApplication).
The crash can also be triggered by moving the text object around on the canvas (instead of editing its contents).
The bug does not require anything else (no other objects on the canvas, no particular font, occurs in both new and previously saved documents).

Apart from this bug, QCAD seems to work fine on OS X 10.9. The text editing crash did not occur before the latest OS update. No other applications on my system seem to be having any problems. If this problem can be fixed, I think QCAD will be quite usable on 10.9.

If you select (line) segments in a visible yet locked layer and choose “convert segments to polyline” (OG), the segments are deleted, but inserting the polyline fails.
So you can easily destroy locked layers by mistake which contradicts the idea of locking layers.

1 Task Description

Hello,

I am stage manager and I have been using QCAD PRO nearly every day for 2 years now.
But since yesterday it seems that text is not saved within the file : when I reopen a saved file, text doesn’t show up. Do I miss a setting ?
I currently run Mac OS X Mavericks but there haven’t been any issues with this OS for months.

I deleted the app and prefs and tried out with 3.6.0 (which I don’t use because it often quits brutally), and also the free version of 3.6.4
But the issue still the same.

As I use this app for my work, it is very annoying not to be able to use text !
Thanks for your help

Attributes are not fixed on their layer. When changing the content of an attribute the content is automatically placed on the active layer not on the attribute layer.
It would be much better if changing an attribute would not result in a change of the assigned layer.

 1387 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Offset tool not working on rounded polylines Closed
100%
1 Task Description

When “offset whole polyline” is selected and the mouse is moved over a rounded polyline, the preview is not working at least in Window 7/8.
This worked in older versions e.g. 3.6.3.

There is an example appended with an edged inner polyline and a rounded outer one. For the inner one, the offset preview is working as expected, for the rounded one it isn’t. Tested on two different PCs, one Win7 and the other one Win8.

1462QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowMac Trackpad zoom gesture not working as expectedAssigned

1 Task Description

Hi,

I am using mac version and I have annoying issue with trackpad.
I use qcad primary with my trackpad and under application preferences (Graphics View/Navigation), my setting is as follows.
Mouse wheel / two finger swipe: Scroll (Trackpad...
Enable pan gesture : unticked (found that enabling this often goes into pan mode when I am just moving my pointer around)
Limit zoom and scroll to prevent overflows : ticked (hoping that this would prevent weird zooming issue. I will describe what I am experiencing later this page)
Reverse mouse wheel direction for zoom :unticked
Mouse wheel zoom factor: 1.02

Things work as expected:

  • panning with two finger swipe
  • and the rest

Issue I am experiencing:

Often, when I am zooming in and out with two finger gestures, the view suddenly sets to some weird state and my drawing goes off the ruler.
The mouse point remains where it is.

Workaround:
Reset viewpoint with autozoom and navigate around.

Expected zoom behaviour:
I expect viewpoint to zoom in / out at where my mouse pointer is or at least the centre of current view point.

1 Task Description

The characters in Portuguese such as “ç é â ... etc ...” are replaced by codes starting with version 3.16.x
Files created with versions of QCAD 3.15.x whose characters were correct in the Properties List when opened by QCAD 3.15.x appear in this strange way when opened in versions 3.16.x.
However, in the screen and in the extraction of the list of attributes the characters are correct.
Apparently the error only occurs in texts on the Block Properties List and Attributes.
However, you can use correctly the characters in a file created from version 3.16.x

Exemplo: “dormitory’ in portuguese is “dormitório” it’s appear like “DORMIT\U+00d3RIO” when file is opened on QCAD 3.16.x

1 Task Description

Given is a drawing of two concentric arcs connected at the ends. (see attached drawing Circle_from_3_Tangents_1.png)

When I try to add a circle at one end by the “Circle from 3 Tangents”-tool, it does nothing.

I also tried it with another drawing (see attached drawing Circle_from_3_Tangents_2.png) - same negative result.

I then tried drawing Circle_from_3_Tangents_3.png. Here the tool only produces outside circles and misses the inside ones.

Hope you can confirm my findings.

 1716 TranslationBug ReportLow Wrong plural forms in translations Closed
100%
1 Task Description

I found that words which has plural forms are translated in manner where only two forms are possible - like in English language. For example: “Object” and “Objects”. But other languages (for example Polish) very often have more than 2 plural forms.
There are also strings which use only one form (for example: “Reset label position of %1 dimension(s).”) but cardinal number placed in string point on more forms than one.
All these strings looks bad when translated and sometimes even in English. I mark most of them using comments:

1765QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery LowErrors with polyline offsetAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Win 7 32 bit QCAD 3.20.1

Ofsset of a base-line with arcs results in massive ammount of errors.
Most of them occur as a cluster of very tiny segments and are part of the offset. (zoom far in at the red circles)
Mostly they occur where the offsetted arcs should merely be trimmend pairwise.
Some occur as detached entities or as detached strings of entities very near the offset (strings not documented).
Spooks occur at opposite site when base-line is not closed.
360° curls can occur with R = Offset.
Null-entities may occur (not documented, hard to find and not able to copy).

The base-line is checked and sound and has mixed tangentially or not tangentially connected arcs.
Offsetting the mother base-line of the base in the file has similar effect but not all and/or different ones.
Also encountered with offseting polys from fonts.
Used to define pocket paths for CNC.
Detected because the CNC driver will not accept Self-crossers, Null-entities or open ends depending on the settings.

Work arround is to explode and select small entities but this does not solves the issues.
1) Choosing the tolerance large enough will detect small segments that should stay.
2) Recombining will generate new ones at the place where the main segments remain crossed.
Cleaning up the paths is a daunting process with some thousand segments for several offsets.

I assume this has an infuence on the CAM part of QCAD too unless the offset method is different.

 1768 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Draw > Polyline > Create From Segments: segments delete ...Closed
100%
1 Task Description

‘Create From Segments’ ‘OG’ includes and admits selection of segments on locked layers.

A)
-When selecting a segment on a not locked layer it can include segments on locked layers that connect to the string. (Assumed wrong)
-A copy of the segments on the locked layer(s) are included in the polyline. (Assumed wrong)
These segments are not removed from the locked layer(s) because of their locked nature. (Intended behaviour)
eg. ‘OG’ & selecting the arc at point A in the example file. The arc is on a not locked layer.

B)
-When selecting a segment on a locked layer it will fully remove segments that connect to the string on not locked layers. (Assumed very wrong)
-Connecting segments on the locked layer(s) will not be converted to a polyline because of their locked nature. (Intended behaviour)
eg. ‘OG’ & selecting the line at point B in the example file. The cyan lines are on a locked Layer.

Both A & B can be undone.

The example is a part of the ‘Skewing project’.

100%
1 Task Description

In a the modelspace I have a block reference of a block(parent), which includes block references (with attributes) of another blocks(child). Than I select this parent block reference and choose Explode. The result is, that the child block references have visible attributes, but they are not connected to the block reference anymore (I can not see them in property editor when the child block is selected). Than when I choose synchronize attributes, new attributes with default values will appear.
I am not sure it his is a bug or expected behavior of the Explode feature.

If it is not a bug, I would like to have new Extract feature, which would copy the content of the selected block reference and immediately insert it exactly to the same place (attributes would be still connected to child references) Extracted block reference would be than removed. Optionally, it could delete the block definition if it is not used anymore in the drawing (but there is already Block Purge feature which will do this).

The modify stretch tool wants first and second corner, start and end point, then starts afresh. When I turn on restrict horizontally eg to align two points between start and end, the restriction sticks and I have to call restrict none, to be able to perform the next iteration, set the first corner then.

So, in the quest for a comfortable user interface, it was nice, if the modify stretch first/second corners parameter setting was not affected by current restrict/ortho etc. settings. Actually, that does not make any sense at all anyways, does it, a rectangle is defined by two degrees of freedom, isnt it?
