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#1694: Viewport entities - Context menu: does not work 2018-01-08T10:12:58Z 2018-01-06T11:34:40Z

QCad 3.19.2 Pro 64 bit. Windows 10, Linux Mint

All functions in context menu does not work with “Viewport entities” (Delete, Cut, Copy,etc).
But all same functions also work with keyboard shortcuts, from command line and buttons from toolbar.

FS#1677: Dimension: Scale option grayed out in model space 2018-01-03T15:42:46Z 2017-12-08T19:06:21Z

... impossible to chose a scale in the DIM option bar.

FS#1685: LinuxCNC no longer works under CAM Legacy Export 2018-01-03T15:37:37Z 2017-12-21T03:04:11Z

On any version newer than 3.18.0 the LinuxCNC options under “Configuration” drop-down no longer work under CAM→CAM Legacy Export. As you can see in the attached screen shot, the menu line which would normally contain LinuxCNC is blank. Also, when LinuxCNC (Inch) and LinuxCNC (Millimeter) are selected, none of the Global or per-Layer options are available, it just says “No Global Options” and “No Layer Options” as you can also see in the screen shot. I think this is because both of these are derivatives of the main LinuxCNC configuration which is not working.

I have confirmed this problem with fresh installs (using the installer) on both Windows 10 and Debian testing
