Can't open my drawing in 3.4.0 ...

Postby Husky » Wed Oct 23, 2013 7:49 pm

Hello everybody,

just installed 3.4.0 on XP32 - tried to open a drawing recently created in 3.3.4 and get this alert:

Husky-2013.10.23-01.png
Husky-2013.10.23-01.png (8.17 KiB) Viewed 1986 times


Still no problems to open it in 3.3.4 - but in 3.4.0 no way and I have to terminate QCAD with the Windows Task-manager.

What can I do?

Thanks for the report.

Can you try to switch off the application preference to show warnings as dialogs:
Edit - Application Preferences - Widgets - Command Line - [ ] Show warnings as dialog (make sure that option is NOT checked).

This option might cause problems with warnings produced when drawings are loaded since you might have to click away a lot of dialogs. I'll look into options to fix this problem for the next release.

Thanks Andrew for this workaround - it works!
I found 49 identical warning in the command line after I opened the drawing. But then ...................... I was able to work on the drawing! :D

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 from the last one. Probably increment a counter for each occurence. This may still swamp the user though if eg. two different messages alternate.

Another way, store any messages into an object with a counter and only ever show the popup with a liste of messages in the end of an action.

Just my 2¢, of course.
