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.

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.

 504 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Poor results from offsetting a Spline in RC 2/3 Closed

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!

 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

See -http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=32&p=7063#p7063

 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!

Task Description

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?

 896 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Lineweight problem Closed
100%
Task Description

Linux Mint - 64

I need to laser cut some dashed circles and in order to do this I need to change the lineweight to 0.00mm (this is the lineweight I use for all laser cutting), however when I do this the result I get is not acceptable.

Using a lineweight of 0.05 is fine but our laser cutters will only read a lineweight of 0.00mm.Normally I would use a linetype of continuous and would be no problem, but for this particular job I need to use the smallest Dash option here!
For now I can get around this problem but it would be good to be able to choose this lineweight and linetype choice at some stage.
