763QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowHatching with just one clickAssigned
0%
7 Task Description

My task: To hatch an area.

Right now, if I want to fill an area with a hatch pattern, I have to select all the enclosing objects (lines, arcs) and then I can select the hatch tool. That can be under some circumstances a tedious task.
To illustrate this, I created a simple example (see Attachment 1: Hatching.png).

Step 1: Create a rectangle.
Step 2: Draw four vertical lines.
Step 3: Select the four lines surrounding the first area. –> Problem! The horizontal lines are too long.
Step 4: Divide the long horizontal lines of the rectangle where the vertical lines touch. Now the lines surrounding the three areas can be selected.
Step 5: Hatch the selection. Done.

Just for fun try recreating my second example (see Attachment 2: Hatching2.png)

Therefore I would like to suggest a far more simple approach.

Step 1: Select the Hatch Tool.
Step 2: Click inside the area you would like to be hatched. Done.

Of course that would mean that the hatch style is already pre-defined and can be changed later, if needed.

In this way productivity can be increased by ... [fill in you own estimate] ... times.

Example 2 would need only 13 clicks to hatch all the areas (including the hatch tool button).

1488QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDimension text positionAssigned
0%
7 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

Clive

2018QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLayer visibility setting per view/view-portAssigned
0%
5 Task Description

In a medium complex drawing it’s often too much details to have all layers in a drawing visible at once. Also, it is of great importance to be able to have a single model to avoid duplication of work and risk inconsistency.

So i would like to create a number of views where each view has selected layers visible (that makes sense for the purpose of the view) and then assign the views to different layout blocks (using view-ports) in paper-space to be able to setup printing of several views on the same page/PDF

This also means that view-ports would have to be aware of what view they are displaying (if any besides the standard-view).
This will then make it possible for printouts of different views with selected layers visible (different for each view and view-port) and still have only one model. Today this is not possible.

As it is today the only limited workaround is to set the layers you want to display, print/PDF of that viewport on separate page, and then change it for the next page, and so on. The big drawback is that you cannot have two different views/view-ports on the same page with different layers visible. Also, for large drawing it is painful to have to do a lot of manual setup for each rendering of the complete drawing.

2353QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowadd theme folder to a local shared pathAssigned
0%
5 Task Description

Would it be possible to add Qcad’s theme folder to the local shared path, for example this would be /home/username/.local/share/QCAD/QCAD/themes for Linux. I know this works well for line types and would be extremely helpful for themes.

1428QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSnap middle of the minimum distance between two entity'...Assigned
0%
4 Task Description

Hi,

from time to time I need to place a circle etc precisely between two entity’s - what is a lot of construction work to get it correct. With the new “Info tool “Distance Entity to Entity” we have already the base for a new snap tool which could help to get rid of the time consuming construction process in cases like this. I would appreciate to get a new snap tool which is able to figure out the shortest distance between to entity’s and then will snap to the middle of it.

Pic 1: Given situation
Pic 2: Result after using this new snap tool

Would it make also cense to have a second new snap tool which works opposite for the furthermost distance between two entity’s?

1721QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowInsert table toolAssigned

4 Task Description

Hi Andrew,

I’m not sure whether this has been added or suggested already. It would be great to have a built in QCAD table tool for producing cutting lists or bill of materials etc. A dedicated table tool would be a real boost to QCAD Pro ;)

Many thanks

Clive

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.

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.

1099QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd Leader with text and number bubbleAssigned

Having leader with numbers and text would be awesome to better interact with the drawing and making BOM lists.

Currently it takes too mush time to make the leaders with text and number bubbles.

1100QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd drag dimension (snap) along dimension lineAssigned
0%
3 Task Description

In Autocad when making a dimension when left clicking to place the dimension there is the possibility to drag the dimension to either side of the dimension. This is also possible with Qcad dimension, but it losses the snapping and does not extend the dimension line out to the dimension text.

This is very useful when the two lines the needs a dimension are close together, or overlapping with another.

Attached is two images one for autocad and one for Qcad

1983QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowTrim All or Bulk Break outAssigned
0%
3 Task Description

This is a trim method I am missing in Qcad.

20 years ago it existed in CadKey.
You had a bunch of lines or segments.
You defined a (new) line or segment as cutter.
‘Trim All’.
You pointed at the side of the cutter entity to trim all intersecting at that side.

Pritty the same as in this topic:
https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=5221

Only in rare cases I can use Husky’s workaround as pro.
It all depends on what else is in the clipping rectangle that is needed to trim all intended.
If of no use all single crossing entities have to be chosen one by one.

CVH

704QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOld Hatch FunctionAssigned
0%
2 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.
