Re: Defect: Reverse of spline with 5 control points

The splines in your file are of 2nd degree. In my version of qCAD I can only draw splines of this type (splinefit SL) of 3rd degree. Changing the degrees of freedom to 3 in the properties editor makes yours reversible too.

Re: Can't open my drawing in 3.4.0 ...

Two solutions come to mind: 1) A checkbox to supress further popups for the active action 2) repetitions aware journal - Unix syslog does like this, eg sometimes it logs: "Last message repeated 25 times". Simplest way was to just remember the last message and only show the current one, if different ...

Block editing in 3.3

After having changed a block, on returning to the main drawing, the block there still shows, what has been deleted. In the block editing session, this is not shown. If I empty the block completely, it still shows in the main drawing. Curiously, this does not happen when I try to trigger the behaviou...

TIP: Fixing SVG viewbox

This tip may be handy for people, that use QCAD to export drawings for display on the web or for print publishing. Say, you want to make several drawings of different size objects, so that when exported to SVG the objects appear in the same place of a fixed background plane, eg. centered around the ...

Re: segmentation fault for qcad 3.0 prof [solved]

I don't have a 32 bit qcad anymore, 64bit version was enough reason for me to pay for the upgrade. When diagnosing library problems, "ldd" is your friend. Eg if your qcad binary is installed in "/opt/qcad" you may issue this command and it will tell you, which library modules would be linked into th...

Re: Eigenschaften Editor / Select Widget

Ah, ich verstehe das so, zumindest hab ich mir das so ein- oder zweimal schon gewünscht: bei einer bestehenden Auswahl im Eigenschaften Editor zB "Kreise" wählen, dann die Auswahl auf die Kreise beschränken: Also ein Knopf "Auswahl einschränken" ähnlich dem "+" neben Layer, der dann alles abwählt, w...

Re: segmentation fault for qcad 3.0 prof [solved]

@ cmcgrath5035 - Just another user here: there are some good reasons to upgrade to 3.2, eg. native x64 binary. If I understood correctly, a solution to your problem would be to get the two library modules mentioned above, "libgcc_s.so.1" and "libstdc++.so.6", and put them inside the qcad-3.0 directo...

qCAD 3.1.3 info tools regression [solved]

Just fetched qcad-3.1.3-pro-linux-x86_64.tar.gz and installed it. Everything fine, except the two info tools "i p" and "i e". angle etc. remain fine. Clean installation, config wiped, still: start the application, select "i p" tool, on first click qcad hangs, with the empty drawing. Also it starts t...

Re: Grid unusable at some zoomlevels

I think I understand as follows: the (minor) grid at some zoom levels is too coarse in your opinion. As a workaround you propose to change the number of subdivisions (of the major/meta grid) at these levels: instead of the fixed number of ten, make them 20 or 50. Minor grid points could then not onl...

Re: QCAD 3.1 on Debian 7.1 problem

A "have been" debian user here: As far as I can tell, the only real solution would be for Andrew to compile the package on debian 7.1, which would probably incur some trouble, but at least qt-dev might be ok there. On the other hand, would bringing your system to debian 8 testing count as "changing ...

Re: 64bit executable

Andrew, you're the best! At first launch the 64bit binary seemed to be quite quicker through the splash screen. Very good. I then ran my script, the time spent is very much the same than before, so no performance boost, but the results are the same too, so no regression, at least in what my script u...

Re: 64bit executable

Hello Andrew, this is with Ubunut 12.04 fully patched. Using Qt version 4.8.1 in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu - latest git pull too. I noticed that the 3.1 community and the Pro version both use the same prefs. Is this good? (So far, it only messes up placement of the custom scripts panel - as these ar...
