 797 QCAD (main)Bug ReportHigh QCAD hanging after loading working file Closed
100%
Task Description

I have the german Version of QCAD 3.0.0.
After starting QCAD I load my current work file (an architecture one).
After loading I get two working Areas in QCAD and after a while the complete Software QCAD (only QCAD) is hanging. It is not possible to close the QCAD SW with the task Manager of Windows 7. Only to log out helps to Close or remove the running SW. The attachment Shows a Screen copy. The view is when you see through milky glasses to QCAD.

I bought this SW a few days ago and then this happened. I have spend a lot of time to generate my Project and now this.

Is there any one who knows what the Problem is?
Is that a Problem of thw QCAD SW or can be the problem my current work file (generated with QCAD on my Notebook). Note, Problem happens on my work Station. I have started to work on my Notebook, but i found out that the Screen is to small to work with QCAD. So i moved the SW to my work Station. (Both working with Windows 7) This to get more Details abou the handling and whathappens before.

Would be great to get a quick Response or better a working solution for my Problem. When you need more details please let me know.

100%
Task Description

Hi Andrew

In Ubuntu 11.10 and Windows 7 everything so far is working ok in QCAD apart from the Library browser!

1.In Win 7-64 I can run the browser and make a new folder, but when I try to set the permissions/open the folder - browser crashes.

2.In ubuntu 11.10 I first uninstalled RC2 then installed RC4. QCAD program runs ok but this time when I try to open up the browser (not a new folder)I get an error message stating that I do not have permissions to open the first file (vehicle -I think!)in RC2? If I select OK in the warning window the warning just keeps on repeating the same message for the next and subsequent files until I quit it.

Task Description

I am continuing my testing on version 3.0 Final.

I noticed that, with 3.0 Final open, the service “syslogd” (on OSX Leopard PPC) does get CPU consumption up to 100%, making the machine unusable.

This has never happened with the RC2 version.

It’s possible to have a copy of RC2 while they investigated the problem? Unfortunately I have not kept a copy.

100%
Task Description

Windows 7 - 64

Via - edit>drawing preferences or Application preferences>print page set up, it seems to make no difference setting the page orientation to either “Portrait” or “landscape” because when you go to print preview the set up you previously set doesn`t overide and set the orientation “set buttons” in print preview, so you have to manually set the orientation for the page you want to print from here (in print preview) regardless of the previously “preferenced” set up.

Task Description

Offsetting a Spline, after exploding and converting to a polyline produces a poor result!

1. Version 2.2 - no problems for using polyline Tools > offset for splines - after exploding them and creating a polyline from the segments! The results were acceptable!

2. Version 3 RC3 or 2 (Ubuntu) - the resultant offset of the Spline was unacceptable in Version 3 RC2/3 and only 50% of the offset was created!

Windows 7 -64

In the metric templates the unit size shown in the preview is showing as ‘Inch’ instead of millimeter. probably just a ‘typo’ mistake here as in reality when you open up a ‘metric’ template they are indeed measuring in millimeters!

 619 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Status bar - X,Y etc. input fields  Closed
100%
Task Description

It could be very useful to have in the status bar area - input fields for typing in X and Y position, Distance and Angle etc...

For example these could be used instead of entering absolute/relative coordinates in the command line.

1.Draw line.
2.Start point - enter in X Field.
3.Next point - enter in Y Field.

This method could also be used for specifying positions when placing other entities.

For me I tend to use a combination of the command line/GUI for most work but I think for those who do not wish to use the command line this could be useful.

 629 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Viewports - not retaining positions? Closed
100%
Task Description

in Win 7-64

Hi Andrew
when I set up my default choice of viewports - say ‘Two vertical’, they do not retain either the initial starting position or indeed the position I leave them in when I reopen a drawing. On opening a new/previous drawing - always one of the viewports is at ‘almost’ full extents!
I then have to manually re-position my viewports to suit.

Is this normal behavior happening here?
It would be good if a drawing opened with persistent viewport positions held, possibly this option could be added to the ‘Layout’ Viewports dialog window?

*Out of interest, when you introduce an isometric grid in the future - will it be possible to set up a ‘Three:Right’ layout view for example and have all three viewports showing different planes - Top, Front and South East?

Thanks

Clive

 630 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Select entities by type Closed
100%
Task Description

please see:
http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=1177

from LeoP

” What would be really useful is a method to select entities by type, rather than by location or layer.

It could have a user interface like the snap command with buttons for the entity type to select, or like the line command with a drop-down box.

This would enable one to quickly select e.g. all texts in a drawing for subsequent attribute modification. Now one has to select each text individually if the texts are scattered over the drawing and layers...”

100%
Task Description

Hi,

I’m using QCAD2 quite a while now and after moving from FreeBSD-i386 to FreeBSD-amd64 there are some libraries missing in the 32 bit version (libXi and some more).

I’d strongly suggest making a 64 bit compilation of the pro version. The community edition does compile and run on FBSD-amd64 very well.

Maybe ths would better be posted to the suggestion list of the upcoming version 3 ...

Thanks for attention!

Task Description

To have a tool that could convert splines to polylines would be useful, particularly for laser cutting work where a nice steady flow is needed, otherwise you can get an erratic ‘jumpy’ movement when cutting..
Maybe a ‘two’ step procedure;
1.First convert to arc/line segments.
2. Then if needed convert to a continuous polyline.

 718 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow 3.0.5 -snap / info feedback problems Closed
100%
Task Description

In 3.0.5 using windows 7-64 and windows vista.
After selecting to use any drafting tool - either arc, circle or ellipse, polyline etc. there are problems with defining the second snap point onwards whether using auto snap or any of the snap tools,the info feedback i.e. End or Middle etc... is flickering or none at all.

Test:
1.Center, Point.
2.Define center.
3.Hard to define point, flickering occurs on graphics feedback for label.

I`m guessing this is another Graphic display problem here.

Task Description

Windows 7-64
3.0.8

I’ve not been able to hatch a simple Brick pattern at a scale of 1/10 on anything larger that 500 mm x 500 mm.

*Scale of 1:1 works fine
*Scale of 1/10 works fine on Squares 400 mm x 400 mm or less!

To reproduce:
1. Draw square of 500 x 500 mm.
2. Select and execute Hatch command using Brick pattern (but I suspect the result will be the same with any pattern).
3. Result in selection states a Hatch but no hatch is present!

Although in my re-testing of this tool with 3.0.8 everything seemed fine I have since noticed that it only seems to work for line-weights of 0.5 mm and larger!
using a line weight of 0.00 produces the original non precise result.

Is this expected behaviour or is something still not quite right for this?
