Here is the event viewer log:

FS#1830: HP7580 Penplotter H. Stiekema Wed, 28 Nov 2018 10:01:17 +0000 Hi Andrew,

I was fiddeling around with a copy of the hpgl postprocessor, and has it adapted, up and running for a HP7580 penplotter. You may add this to QCAD if you like.

Poking and peeking in the other postprocessor files, I found enough information to generate a very acceptable hpgl.plt file now, including the required pen changes.

The purpose of a ‘bracket-field’ (as [S] ) is clear to me. Where are [S#] and [S!] used for?

FS#1836: Offset for paste along entity Thomas Stoelting Tue, 04 Dec 2018 13:08:58 +0000 add a new parameter “offset” in the dialog “Paste along entity”


FS#1829: Incorrect font weights in macOS 10.14 Mojave Andrew Tue, 27 Nov 2018 09:04:16 +0000 See QTBUG-69955 which affects QCAD on Mojave:

FS#1832: Modify > Explode: attributes of block references are orphaned after exploding Tomas Novak Thu, 29 Nov 2018 08:45:38 +0000 In a the modelspace I have a block reference of a block(parent), which includes block references (with attributes) of another blocks(child). Than I select this parent block reference and choose Explode. The result is, that the child block references have visible attributes, but they are not connected to the block reference anymore (I can not see them in property editor when the child block is selected). Than when I choose synchronize attributes, new attributes with default values will appear.
I am not sure it his is a bug or expected behavior of the Explode feature.

If it is not a bug, I would like to have new Extract feature, which would copy the content of the selected block reference and immediately insert it exactly to the same place (attributes would be still connected to child references) Extracted block reference would be than removed. Optionally, it could delete the block definition if it is not used anymore in the drawing (but there is already Block Purge feature which will do this).

FS#1831: Block > Copy Block: attributes of block references are orphaned in copied block Tomas Novak Thu, 29 Nov 2018 08:14:45 +0000 1) Open the attached dxf file
2) Right click on “vne_vent_odvod_ec_3f” block in Block list and select Copy block
3) Choose name
4) Insert reference of this Copy block to the modelspace
5) Save the file
6) Close and reopen the file

RESULT: Attributes of block references included in the original block are missing in the copied block.
Immediately after insertion of the copied block I can see in the property editor, that block reference attributes are not “conected” to the block reference, but they are still visible. They disappear when the file is reopen.

Alternative way I use to copy this kind of blocks without error: Open block I want to copy, Select all entities, reference copy of them, paste to modelspace, select them in modelspace and choose create block.

FS#1834: Property Editor: Attributes of block reference not showing Andrew Thu, 29 Nov 2018 14:17:28 +0000 - Create block with attributes
- Create block reference
- Select block reference
→ Property editor does not show attributes

FS#1833: Deep synchronize attributes feature Tomas Novak Thu, 29 Nov 2018 09:01:54 +0000 There is the Synchronize attributes feature which works well. But It affects only block references in the active layout(modelspace, block layout). If I want to synchronize attributes of block references in in another blocks, i have to manually go through all blocks and run synchronize attributes feature. That is the reason I would like to modify Synchronize attributes feature to affect all block references in a drawing, or add new Deep synchronize attributes feature.

FS#1828: Chinese language not loading correctly Simon Hu Wed, 21 Nov 2018 07:23:09 +0000 Most of the Chinese items cannot be shown correctly. But when I check the qm files, the translation are there and the contents are correct.

I’m using the Pro version

FS#1827: Property Editor: Accept advanced scale expressions for viewport scale Husky Tue, 20 Nov 2018 21:09:01 +0000 Hi,

Identical scale expression used in Print Preview like 5:1, 5/1, 5”=1”, 5 are working flawless like expected.
Same expression used in a Viewport scale leads to different outcomes.

The Property Editor used to fix that in Paper_Space does also not accept those standard expressions.
