964QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew tool request - 'Break Out Arc' from CircleAssigned
0%
Task Description

It would be useful to be able to pick a Start and End point of an Arc within a Circle to then break this out. So in principle another break out tool.

927QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFurther options for the 'Add Measurement' toolsAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Absolutely love the new options for adding the measurements in the current drawing.

I would like to see an additional option for only adding the text and not the lines also, maybe a simple check box would suffice here.

Of course at the moment I am able to use the property editor to select only the lines and move to a new layer and hide!

 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.

 884 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Tool for copying/pasting selected entities along a path Closed
100%
Task Description

Not sure how complicated this one might be to develop/implement ?

But a tool for copying/pasting entities along a given path would be great. In the attached snapshot you can see what I am trying to acheive - to copy/paste the brick along a wall contour. A dedicated tool for doing something like this would be great...sure I can do it with the tools provided in QCAD already but it sure would make life so much easier if there was a tool specific for this kind of thing.
I am actually working on some ‘real’work projects with these requirements and it does take a bit of time to get correct!

Or maybe an additional Points tool option to plant points along a curve would be good!

Task Description

It would be extreamly useful to have an additional info tool to be able to find the centre of gravity (centroid) for an irregualr polygon.
For info please see:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centroid

Actually a tool whicn gives an option for finding the centre and centroid of polygons would be good.

 882 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Repeat last tool button Closed
100%
Task Description

A ‘Repeat last tool’ button would be useful.
When one has fully cancelled all operations, sometimes it would be convenient to have the option to have a repeat of the last tool again...I’m thinking that a simple button could do this a bit like the reset/idle button.

It would be useful to have a persistent selection button added to the ‘selection’ tool set.

This would allow the user to set persistent selection as and when needed for the current drawing one is working on, rather than going the long route through the ‘Application’ preferences dialog.

Task Description

It would be useful to have an additional option in the polyline tool set to be able to create a polyline from selected entities only, without the need first for preparatory drafting measures.
Basic example attached.
You see here I want to create a polyline from only the selected lines, thus leaving the rest as separate line segments.

100%
Task Description

It would be useful to have an option to be able to add new folders in the layer list, to group certain layers together in a folder when needed, this would reduce the layer list length and make it easier to navigate to certain layers (would be useful for me anyway!).

This feature might also be useful for the block list too!

 795 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Render circular arcs precisely - tool query Closed
100%
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?

Application preferences > Graphics View > Appearance - Solid grid lines doesn’t change anything?

792QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNew 'Match' properties toolAssigned
0%
Task Description

To add a new ‘Match’ properties tool.

For example, I have a large drawing with lots and lots of entities on various layers and I want to select some entities (say 500 or more) which are all on different layers and change all these selected entities to match the properties of one other particular entity - but, but I want the ‘Matched’ entities to remain on their own layers.

OK, of course I can use the property editor for this and this is fine in most instances but I would first need to determine the the layer data for the properties of the entity I would like to match to (Color, Line weight and Line type) in the first place and then I need to remember these attributes in order to change things in the property editor in order to change all of my selection to match!

As I say mostly the above procedure would be fine to use but for convenience it would be great to have a new tool to do all this for me and cut out a few steps in the process.

A new ‘Match’ properties tool procedure could be something like this:

1. Select Match properties tool.

2. Select all entities to be matched.

3. Select entity to match to.

4. Tick or leave un-ticked - move to same layer.

5. Complete process.

* Actually, while writing this I`ve just thought of another useful addition which could be added to the Info tool set, ‘Entity’ properties info!
Example - click on Info > Entity Properties and click on the entity in question and then the properties are displayed without going to the layer data for this!
Just an idea ;)

Would it be possible to make a Plug in tool for a Hatch generator, so custom made hatches can be saved as .pat files?

786QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMulti - Breakout toolAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

A ' Multi ' Breakout tool or added option to the existing Breakout tool.

For example see attached image.

An option to remove all segments within a chosen boundary would be good, in my example I want to remove all the hatching within the Red circle.

So after exploding the Hatch, currently I have to remove all segments singularly!

Of course I could have placed the circle first and hatched around it - but in this and most instances it is easier to design and to produce the Hatching first and then place my circle/shapes etc.

 785 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Hatch at scale 1/10 not completed on 500 mm x 500 mm s ...Closed
100%
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!

Please see attached image:

776QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowExtra ' isometric' buttons for using Line from Angle.Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

When working with the isometric grid (in any projection - Top, Right, Left) and drawing from ‘scratch’ as it were, without using the projection tools - I find myself using ‘Line from Angle’ the most.

It would be extreamly useful to be presented with two extra buttons when using this tool, a 30 degree button and a -30 degree button, this way I wouldn’t need to keep typing in the angle difference here.

775QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNote book tool for QCADAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

It would be really cool to have a Note book tool for QCAD!

For example I am often working on a draft and at the same time scribbling notes down on a separate piece of paper relating to the drawing I am working on, could be anything e.g. add a block,add a dimension etc. etc... all sorts of things to remind myself about - all related to a particular drawing.

Of course I could use any number of other programs for this but a simple dedicated tool inside QCAD (could be called the ‘QCAD scribbler ;)) would be much better, especially one that can save the notes to a particular file, then when I open up my drawing again - my notes are there too!

 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.
