[solved] 3.21.1 Tool shortcuts cannot be stored

Post by Rantanplan7 » Mon Jul 02, 2018 12:00 pm

Hi Andrew,

I cannot store anymore new settings the tool shortcuts. If put a new shortcut for example zoom window Z,W in it will work for that session but not after re-starting QCAD. As well after I have done this and go into the settings again my new shortcut is gone but will still work for that session without re-starting QCAD.

Any idea about a workaround?

Very strange. I have played around a lot, especially with editing the qcad.ini file in the sections commands and shortcuts to get my own shortcuts in but it isn't working. QCAD is simply overwriting it with invalid.

Just tried it on an older 3.19.2 installation on a different windows 10 PC. It works, I can store new shortcuts.

I can confirm is a bug:
http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.ph ... sk_id=1776

If you are interested in snapshot releases (unstable), you can download the latest snapshot release (3.21.1.1) from the download page (under "Snapshots)".

Yep - same here!
Win10/64 - QCAD Pro 3.21.1.0 will not save changed shortcuts. :(
Older QCAD Pro Version are working flawless.

Edit: Andrew was faster ... :D

Thanks Andrew and Husky (and I thought Husky's are quick ones??) to confirm this although I hoped that there is a workaround at least. So for the time being I will try to get the existing shortcuts into my mind as I don't like to go back to 3.19.2.

If I try that, would you like to get comments on that snapshot as well? And if yes on a private message or here in the board?

Yes, please do provide feedback if possible. In the public forum but a separate topic would be fine, thanks.
