So the steps I usually do are: select all elements on the layer paste into new drawing sometimes rename layer names or attributes adjust dimension settings save and give name for drawing Sometimes I have up to 100 layers I need to export like this, so an automatic export for all would be time saving too. But very often a “single click” export method would also help a lot. (e.g. inside the layer list an entry in the right click menue like “save as new file”). Also a multiple selection would be handy if more that one layer should end up in the new file. (e.g. select the three layers that need to be in the new document, then right click and save as new file). Maybe this is too much of changes needed inside the layer list - so something like a separate layer export dialogue would make sense. When exporting many layers some variables for automatic naming of layers and filename would make sense e.g. user can specify basename_%L.dxf to get the basename_layername.dxf or just an increasing number. For layers and attributes it is often needed to give a layer a certain name or color for different cnc processes (e.g. engraving and cutting for lasers) or to put everything on layer “0” because of some old CAM software that only supports content on layer 0. probably many more details would make sense that I didn’t think of yet... kind regardsMartin Hi!

FS#1662: Select > Select Contour: slow for complex drawings http://www.ribbonsoft.com/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1662 2017-11-17T16:41:31Z Martin Hi! when working with files containing many not connected elements (non-poly-line elements) a double click can cause a coffee-break easily. The search for connected entities easily takes over 5 minutes on an up to date machine (i7@3.4GHz) with files that are pretty standard in size (2 or 3 MB file size ascii dxf). Adding an interruption-method would be suitable (for example by pressing escape). attached a file with a polyline of 13000 entities and a second file with just everything duplicated. When exploding the polyline and double clicking an element it takes quite a while until all elements are selected. (this is not an extreme example, I had sometimes 10 minutes of waiting with slightly bigger files, accidently double clicking something). also an improved algorithm for the search would help to speed up the selection. (e.g. divide the area in smaller parts, do the search there, or an option to search only in the visible view port of the document) Martin Hi!

FS#1661: Viewport rotation issue http://www.ribbonsoft.com/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1661 2017-11-12T12:10:21Z Husky Case: 1. Launch Add Viewport, adjust setting for scale and rotation, determine Viewport - QCAD will switch to a Layout Block= scale and rotation works as expected. 2. Launch Add Viewport, determine Viewport - QCAD will switch to a Layout Block, change scale setting = works as expected on view and frame, change rotation = works on view BUT NOT ON VIEWPORT FRAME. Case:

1. Launch Add Viewport, adjust setting for scale and rotation, determine Viewport - QCAD will switch to a Layout Block
= scale and rotation works as expected.

2. Launch Add Viewport, determine Viewport - QCAD will switch to a Layout Block,

change scale setting = works as expected on view and frame,

change rotation = works on view BUT NOT ON VIEWPORT FRAME.
