Win 7
Q-CAD 3.19.2

R-Click in Layer list
With a selection, selecting by Layer adds the Items on that Layer to the selection.
With a selection, deselecting by Layer subtracts the Items on that Layer from the selection.
This is not a bug in casu because this can be the intention of the function. Adding or Subtracting.

Intuitively ‘selecting by Layer’ to retrict to that Layer solely has only the desired effect if no selection existed before.
Deselecting by Layer with no previous selection should mention there was none to start with.
Selecting by Layer from an empty Layer should mention that nothing is added.

Faults are prone to make.

Selecting a Layer uniquely would be an interesting additional feature.


FS#1707: Dimension text size and arrow for imported drawings, way too small 2018-01-15T14:39:01Z 2018-01-15T13:12:27Z

A nasty bug that I posted some time in the forum that prevents QCAD to read properly the content block associated with dimension.

Here’s what is happening:
- every dimension entity in DXF/DWG is stored with a block representing its contents (or in fact, anything else)
- QCAD ignores that block and instead renders the dimension using the various sizes and properties of the dimension

FS#1706: Grid line mask drawing lines 2018-01-14T11:09:56Z 2018-01-14T10:06:02Z

After changing the colours of the grid points and grid lines I noticed that when I draw a line exactly over a grid line the grid line masks the drawing line. When zoomed in the lines disappear all together. Please see attached images.

FS#1705: Connect certain actions and layers 2018-01-13T12:12:14Z 2018-01-13T12:12:14Z

When dimensioning my drawings I always want the dimensions to be on the dimensions layer.
When adding text I want the text to be on the text layer.
When drawing an infinite line it is always a construction line, therefore I want it to be on the construction line layer.
When drawing a line segment it almost always is on my outline layer.

So I propose a new option to bind certain actions to certain layers.
Whenever those actions are selected the layer should automatically be switched.

I can imagine this being implemented in the General→Tool Settings menu, where the short cuts are defined.

FS#1699: Dimensioning - add option to insert text in the middle of dimension 2018-01-08T12:08:01Z 2018-01-08T12:08:01Z

Dimensioning - add option to insert text in the middle of dimension.

To have an option to have text aligned in the middle of the dimension line, rather than above it.
