QCAD version 3.23.0
10:21:34: Debug: calling odInitialize

QCAD has unexpectedly quit.

Please use the offscreen platform plugin for headless systems
(without a running X11 server):
./qcad -platform offscreen

In addition, you might have to override the default Qt style
to prevent the loading of a native desktop style (such as GTK):
./qcad -style plastique

I have tested this in version 3.22.1 too and get the same result. Reverting all the way back to 3.13.1 results in an operable version of qcad when working on the same file and library blocks.

FS#1939: Right click not working in QCAD Community Edition ali Mon, 09 Sep 2019 03:13:39 +0000 After I remove the .dll files from the pro trial version, right click stop working on Windows 10.
I went a little further to try identifying which of the 5 files specifically causes right click to stop working, and I found that it is qcadproscripts.dll. The presence or absence of the other 4 dll files that make up the pro version has no influence on this behavior.

FS#1937: Circle shown in QCAD but not in AutoCAD Ian Howell Tue, 27 Aug 2019 09:37:05 +0000 The attached drawing shows two large concentric circles when viewed in QCAD but the inner circle is missing when viewed in other CAD programmes. This cost $50 in rework as my laser cutting was not cut correctly!

FS#1936: ver 3.23 not saving font information Larry Buller Fri, 23 Aug 2019 20:07:38 +0000 The attached file is not saving font preference.
All fonts on the online layer are reported as the standard font. If I highlight one or all of the text entities and change the font to something like Yu gothic light, the property page reports yu gothic light and the screen reflects the changed font.
If I save, close and reload, the fonts for all text is again “standard”.

So then I try to enter new text via the “A” draw text command icon. I select “Broadway.ttf” as the main font in the text entry dialog.
One word “Broadway” is entered as the text. it appears on the upper left of the screen as expected and the font name is Broadway in the property editor. If I look at the dxf file source there is a whole bunch of text styles.
I save and close the file, and then open it again. Now the word Broadway has changed to font name “standard” in the property editor and is very definitely not the Broadway.ttf font.

I am not the originator of the file, I am just trying to change the font. If I start a new file and enter new text the font saves just fine, so I am thinking it is a setting somewhere, but I am unable to find it.

We (me and my customers) use these files for engraving so exact font is critical.

Check or uncheck “Enable Splash Screen”

1. Restart of QCAD, the splash screen with Initialising add-ons xx% is identical

2. Apply, Cancel and OK buttons - why have both Apply and OK buttons?

FS#1934: Diametric text - overlaid Simon Miller Fri, 16 Aug 2019 12:30:28 +0000 Diametric text is always placed above a horizontal measurement.

I often want to indicate both the inside and outside diameter of an object e.g. a wheel using diametric text. The text is overlaid and illegible.

To avoid text overlapping, I use Horizontal Aligned because I can control the position of the text to avoid illegible text.

A better method would be to alternate the placement of diametric text (alternatively) above and below a measurement so that in the majority of cases an overlap would be avoided.

Similarly for a vertical measurement, the text is overlaid and illegible.

When the angle is almost vertical, the angle controls the side the text appears however it also reverses the direction of the text (which is logical but not attractive).

Kind regards
Simon

FS#1933: Advanced SVG export file overwrite check doesn't use updated filename Stephen Casner Wed, 14 Aug 2019 22:54:33 +0000 In the Advance SVG Export dialog, when I edit the filename to be different than the default file that already exists and then clear the checkbox for “Overwrite existing file without asking” just to make sure that I haven’t already created a file with the modified name as well, then I get a popup warning that the export would overwrite the default filename, not the name as edited. In other words, the overwrite check ignored the fact that I edited the filename.

Observed on MacOS Mojave (10.14), but probably applies to all.

FS#1930: Option disable "Auto Zoom on load" for saved "Layout Viewports" Husky Thu, 08 Aug 2019 22:03:59 +0000 Hi,

my setting for “Auto Zoom on load” is checked to on. That works perfect for me for most of my drawings.

But if I save a drawing with Layout Viewports then I have to adjust every Viewport again after loading.

Would it be possible to have an option below Application Preferences / Graphics View / Appearance / Auto Zoom on load / ON which excludes drawings saved with Layout Viewports?
