When I run bbox with the attached file I get inconsistent results if I run it 6 or 10 times.

Sometimes the size is 448979.2349223149/310815.2964427199 (it thinks that there is an object at 0,0)
sometimes it is 338.0789223148604/302.31644271989353 (this is what I think is correct)

To reproduce:

  1. Draw a rectangle.
  2. DH, draw a dimension (the base dimension).
  3. Move that dimension’s text to a new position.
  4. DC, continue that dimension.


The text of the continued dimension will show up on top of that of the base dimension. Expected behaviour would be that it would show up on top of the continued dimension (standard placement).

 2156 QCAD (main)SuggestionLow Add an option to XP preferences to include circles or n ...Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Andrew,
unrelated to any OS or version.

Circles do explode to polylines with two arc segments.
Discussed earlier and very correct because a full circle bulge would be a mathematical limit situation.

When there is no option to ‘Undo’ anymore or when the file was saved & loaded there is no easy way back.

One of the reasons why I isolate circle entities if I might going to use XP as in the file here:
https://qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=2155
Even knowing it, I still make more mistakes as I would like. ;-)

It would be nice to be able to exclude circle entities from the GUI explosion action XP.
Can be simply implemented in the top of Explode.explodeSelection with an extra preference in AppPrefs, default =true.

On the other hand, the explosions of circles used internally in various methods should remain.

Rectangle with Size (RS) doesn’t update the Fill, RoundCorners & Radius settings shared under the [Shape] header in QCAD ini.

Explained as group synchronization while the Polygon methods have more settings in common, although not shared.

In the summary there are more minor issues listed.

I rather would opt for all individual settings ...

 2196 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Leader: Arrow removed on load if arrow only fits first  ...Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Andrew,
This is bugging me for over a year now.
I filed it as a feature request as it is dismissed twice as a possible bug on the forum.
In both cases the advice is to only use Specific Scale 0 for Leaders.
(... and adapt all other dimensions to that)

I am aware that an arrow head has to fit twice on the first leg of a Leader Entity.

The size is set global in the Drawing Preferences under Dimension Settings: ‘Text Height’.
Under Dimension Settings, there is also a global ‘Size scale factor’.
And every dimension entity has a Specific Property called ‘Scale’ that supersedes this global ‘Size scale factor’.

Proof of concept: Dim size 5 and for any regular dimension.
1) Size scale factor 1, Specific Scale 0 » text height & arrow length = 5 units.
2) Size scale factor 2, Specific Scale 0 » text height & arrow length = 10 units.
3) Size scale factor 2, Specific Scale 1 » text height & arrow length = 5 units.
4) Size scale factor 1, Specific Scale 2 » text height & arrow length = 10 units.
5) Size scale factor 10, Specific Scale 0.5 » text height & arrow length = 2.5 units.
6) Size scale factor 99, Specific Scale 0.1 » text height & arrow length = 0.5 units.
→ Obvious is that the ‘Specific Scale’ supersedes the dimensions ‘Size scale factor’.

Those two last Leader arrows (2.5 & 0.5 long) would definitely fit twice on an 8 units long first Leader leg! And they do perfectly while drawing them.

However, the arrow will be reset when the file is saved & loaded.

For case 5 the first leg has to be (2 times 5×10) 100 units or over so an arrow 2.5 long remains on save (=40 times). In the absurd case 6 that would be (2 times 5×99) 990 units or over for an arrow only 0.5 units long (=1980 times).
Verfied and true.

It seems that on save/load:
The Specific Scale is not taken into consideration while evaluating ‘At least twice’.

Apart from that they render fine when first drew.
And reappear when setting the arrow back on again after load.

Regards,
CVH

What is the noTextWidth value?

As far as I can detect ...
PrintPreviewImplPro.prototype.addDecorations uses value 1.
CrankWheel.js uses value 1.
ExText.prototype.beginEvent uses value 2.
ExDrawFonts.prototype.beginEvent uses value 1.
Counter.prototype.getOperation uses QCAD.ini or default zero.

1 Task Description

I just updated my QCAD to 3.26.2.0 (3.26.2) version and lost the hability to edit block attributes of my sheet or in any other block.

I tried to save as the drawing and the problem persists.

When I open the block, the attribute is there and is all set in the Specific Properties, but when I exit to the Model Space to edit the Attribute text, the created attributes don’t appear on Specific Properties tab.

The use of block attributes in sheets, balloon or any block that contains text is very necessary.

Andrew,

Besides that Misc .. Information .. ‘Store Positions’ - stores the startpoint of each polyline
- or stores all nodes of each polyline (With: InfoStorePositions/PolylineNodes = true)
Refering to https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=6300

I somethimes require the midpoints of the line and arc segments as spline controlpoints
+ the start and the endpoint when geometrical open.

Could that be made an undocumented preference too?

512QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowModify stretch and Restrict orthoAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

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?

675QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOption for fixed Text and Dimension heights ...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

I think it would be nice to have the possibility to decide a fixed Text and Dimension (inclusive Arrows) height what is not affected by the Print scale. That means: If I have a given height of 3,5mm it will always be printed with 3,5mm - no matter what the scale for the printing is.
Yes, I see also the problem that I could run in space problems after I twitch to the Print preview - but that will also happen when I change the Text hight in the preferences for a 5:1 printing.
Maybe this Feature Request doesn’t looks important if you are usually working with Metric Units but if you have to handle Imperial Units then it is a pain in the back to make always the calculation to get the same heights.
Try it by your self; 3,5mm = 0.137795” = 1”:1” Now I like to print it in 1”:256” ops - to small - ok 1”:64” ... no, to big, maybe 1”:128” .......and QCad can’t remember the previously numbers. ;-)

1 Task Description

It would be really cool to have a Note book tool for QCAD!

For example I am often working on a draft and at the same time scribbling notes down on a separate piece of paper relating to the drawing I am working on, could be anything e.g. add a block,add a dimension etc. etc... all sorts of things to remind myself about - all related to a particular drawing.

Of course I could use any number of other programs for this but a simple dedicated tool inside QCAD (could be called the ‘QCAD scribbler ;)) would be much better, especially one that can save the notes to a particular file, then when I open up my drawing again - my notes are there too!

0%
1 Task Description

As we all know - from time to time - it is a lot of work to prepare a part of a drawing for a hatch.
To get rid of one of the basic task (cutting lines along the desired hatch boundary) it would be nice to have an add-on - or what ever - what would cut ALL intersection in a drawing (or just on one layer, or just based on a selection etc.) with just a mouse click. Then it would be much faster and easier to do the selection for the hatch boundaries.
The user could decide to make it directly in his drawing or he like to duplicate the drawing to an extra layer where this function will be used ....

Clive mentioned on this:
Maybe a tool like this could be an additional ‘Snap’ selection option - select all snap intersections or select snap intersections within a boundary! then as you suggest ‘cut’ at the intersection points.
