FS#1903: Saving layer settings, e.g. visibility status, associated with a view 2019-06-13T22:08:44Z 2019-06-13T22:08:44Z

In a medium complex drawing it may be too much details to have all layers in a drawing visible at once.

Instead a number of views would be created that saves not only zoom level and position but also what layers are visible and not (as appropriate for the purpose of that particular view). This is very cumbersome (to the extent it is not really realistic) to achieve today and requires a lot of duplication of both model and layers.

The advantage of adding this is the ability to have only one model (with multiple views) and avoid duplication of work and the risk of inconsistency inherent with many copies of the model.

As a further (and natural extension to this) would be the ability to used this functionality with view-ports to be able to create (possibly many) paper-spaces from a single model. This would however require view-ports to be aware of what view they are a window into. A single change in the model would then propagate to all defined view-ports and paper-spaces.

FS#1902: CAM G-Block Toolpath 2019-06-13T08:59:43Z 2019-06-13T08:56:58Z

Hallo Andrew,

Still busy on the never ending G-code story. Urgently needed the very handy G-code Block Toolpath. This ‘toolpath’ also solves a lot of “editing requests”.

Hallo Andrew,

Still busy on the never ending G-code story. Urgently needed the very common Traverse Toolpath.

Example added as pdf.

FS#1900: Remote shares initially not accessible. 2019-06-12T08:20:23Z 2019-06-12T08:10:27Z

My data files are stored on network shares (synology) with a GB link. QCAD Pro is run in Admin mode.

While in my Windows browser all remote shares are accessible (Green), in the QCAD file open menu they are initially shown as not accessible (Red). By accessing a specific drawing file in a remote share, the share will open and turn green.

Same behavior using ‘Open recent’. Always the message is given that the requested file does not exist, and the file is wiped from the ‘Recent Open’ list. Only if the share is first accessed through ‘Open’ with a random file, it will turn and a ‘recent open’ file for that share will open.

Drag and Drop from a remote share will never work.

FS#1899: View > Auto zoom: zoom to invisible entities in blocks 2019-06-10T08:39:33Z 2019-06-10T08:15:57Z

Create and insert a block with entities on layer “0” and layer “1”.

Switch off layer “1”.

Auto zoom zooms to block boundary of all entities, including those on layer “1”.

FS#1898: Lines are broken when saved in layers. 2019-06-10T07:39:58Z 2019-06-10T00:02:01Z

QCAD community edition.

I use this program to generate CAM data. Whenever I save a the same text in different layers - one of the layers saved has broken lines. I have to spend hours extending and trimming each segment to reattach them.

Duplicate problem:

New file
Add some text
Explode into lines
Add layer
Add same text to same location on new layer
Explode into lines
Save file

FS#1897: File - Import broken in 3.22.1 2019-06-09T13:05:34Z 2019-06-09T02:13:16Z

Import of a block from a file from file - import or its related icon does not place anything on the drawing or add it to the block list.
When you open the command, the import drawing dialog appears as well as the options tool bar. Whether save as block is checked or not, nothing happens and the options tool bar closes when a file name has been selected and open is clicked on the import drawing dialog.

Dragging and dropping a file on the main screen still works

FS#1896: File > Open: Import fails for some files with layer states and NULL layers 2019-06-07T12:47:47Z 2019-06-07T12:47:26Z

Layer states in DXF/DWG files may contain NULL layers (likely deleted layers). Import fails in these cases.

FS#1895: Add support for block transformation matrices 2019-06-06T19:46:48Z 2019-06-06T19:46:48Z

Support transformations by transformation matrix for block references.
