 1378 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow  Wrong value separator accepted and accomplished Closed
100%
Task Description

My settings for Coordinate Format: Decimal Point = Dot

Accidentally using a comma instead of a dot in a value field leads to a wrong result without any warning.

Test:

Using the “Rectangle with Size” tool accidentally with a comma will not trigger a warning (red text) and it will draw a wrong sized rectangle.
It seems to me that QCAD is using the after comma value to draw this rectangle.
Given value 30,5 by 50,7 leads to a rectangle 5 by 7
Crazy values like 1.,.35 by 71.,.75 are also accepted and leads to a rectangle size of 35 by 75 without any warning.
A crazy value like 71.,..75 will finally trigger a red text warning!

Counter test horiz. Line: Value 100,25 leads to a line with 25 in length.
Value 100.25 leads to a line with 100.25 in length.

Using the same tools with the correct separator will work as expected!

Same game with most of all other tools which are asking for a given value. No warning at all - just wrongly accomplished.

1362QCAD (main)Feature RequestLownew layer tool: Toggle visibility allAssigned
0%
2 Task Description

Hi,

I use a lot of “temp” layer to keep my drawing organized during a design session. Ad the end of the day (or week or month ...) I need to get rid of this “garbage” but unfortunately there is no easy way to delete all this layer in one go.
Most of the time those layer are invisible. The “important layer” are visible. If I could toggle all layer from visible in invisible in one go with a switch like “Toggle visible layer all” and then use “Select all” / delete / Purge unused layer I’m able do get rid of this stuff with just a few clicks.

The same tool would help to improve the workflow in the case that I just have to switch between all visible / invisible layer for testing / double checking / cleaning or what ever. Currently I have to toggle every single layer to get this done and if I work with many layer I need to have a perfect working memory (or a piece of paper with many notes!) to be able to restore the same desired working order.

And I’m confident - there are many more useful scenarios for a tool like this one ... ;-)

Task Description

If I try to draw a circle between two little circles with a radius (e.g.) of 3000 the tool shows me only two possibility’s - but there are much more. If I make a counter test with the tool “2 Tangents with Point” all possibility’s are correct shown.

0%
2 Task Description

It would be very useful to have the same possibility for Isometric projection like the Paste tool etc.. An option which ask me to put a new Isometric projection on the current layer is right now missing. If I like to have this new Isometric Projection on a different layer I have to reselect the projection and move it to that layer. That is plain inconvenient.

Task Description

Scenario 1:
like to use “Breakout segment” on a spline,
Status bar tells me that I CAN use this tool on a spline,
Breakout: works,
Undo: works,
Everything fine ...

Scenario 2:
like to use “Breakout manual” on a spline,
Status bar tells me NOT to use this tool on a spline but ...
Breakout manual: works,

I think just the status bar needs an Infotext update.

Scenario 3:
like to use “Auto Trim” on a spline,
Status bar tells me NOT to use this tool on a spline but ...
Auto Trim: works,
Undo: works NOT,
I think the status bar needs an Infotext update and I guess in the undo function is a bug.

1262QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMissing some kind of "QCAD is still working" indicator.Assigned
0%
Task Description

If I have to do some kind of intense tasks like converting a previous Polyline, which is now exploded to lines (maybe a couple hundred thousand short lines) back to a polyline (Polyline/Create from Segments) QCAD needs time to do that. In this “working time” I can’t see any indicator that QCAD is working. Not a Hourglass on the mouse or some other indicator. I have just the feeling: Nothing is going on right now ...

It would be nice to have some kind of visual info that QCAD is working.

Task Description

If I try to use the Selection Filter to find Lines regarding to the used Angle it fails in many cases.

In my test drawing you can see that I’m able to select Lines with an 0° Angle but I’m not able to select any of the other lines with e.g. an 45° / 90° 180° or 315° etc. angle.

If I flip only in horizontal or vertical direction the preview box will double in size and I can’t place the entities precisely regarding to the reference point.

1170QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMore options for "Paste along entity"Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

The new tool “Paste along entity” is very useful! But I work mostly in mechanical engineering and would like to see more options to determine where it has to start with the first insert item.

Screenshot:

1. That is how it works right now - no chance to get it started on both ends of an line.

2. If I need to have my items also on the ends I have to use additional the normal “Paste” function.

3. If I could tell the “Paste along entity” that there is a start and end “Base” dimension then I’m a big step further. ;-)

I could tell the tool that it has to start at “0” or at “25” and the rest is just regarding the calculation. Correct?

However - you need many times in mechanical engineering etc. a hole pattern which will start at:

0,25,25,25,25,25,25,25,25,0

or

25, 123.5, 123.5, 123.5, 123.5, 123.5, 25

It would be very nice to have this also in combination with the “Paste along entity” tool ;-)

 1125 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Property Editor / Total angle of an arc Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Hi,

if I have an arc and use the Property Editor to get the Geometrical information I always miss the total angle of the arc.

Yes - I have the Start and the End angle but to get the Total angle I have to draw construction lines to be able to use the Angular Dim or Info angle tool /or I need to use a pocket calculator ...

It would be nice to have this calculated by QCAD - I assume it can’t be that difficult to design an extra field which will display, based on the start and end angle, the total angle of an arc.

What do you think?

1027QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRectangle with a 3 point determination ...Assigned
0%
2 Task Description

Many times I’m faced with the situation that I have to use a rectangle related to other entities. Dimensions/Angle = unknown.

We have in QCAD a rectangle tool with a two point diagonal determination but this is limited to two points and it will only work in a horizontal and vertical direction.

My feature request is based on the idea to draw a rectangle with 3 points - regardless the angle.

1. First point: start

2. second point: determination of the first side (width?) and it will also provide the angle for the rectangle

3. third point: determination second side (height?)

I’m asking for an additional new tool? No - just as an option to the existing rectangle tool ...
