 518 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Unable to use Library browser properly in RC4 Closed-- 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.

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.

For and behalf of mandrena

To add another Arc tool option in Arc tools set:

1.Specify Start point for Arc.

 504 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (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!

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!

604QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMeasure and record X,Y coordinates tool - add to info ...Assigned-- Task Description

Feature request
See topic -

Just a thought, but one that could be useful for machinists in particular - a measurement tool that can snap to a point as per usual, but then just displays the drawing coordinates in X and Y. This could be expanded to the dimensions tool set, so that you can click on a point and print the coordinates next to it.

609QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLowClean up toolAssigned1-- Task Description

To have the option to set your own ‘user defined’ line weight.

 619 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Status bar - X,Y etc. input fields  Closed-- 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.

Some times I need to have the dimension info using the Vertical Dimension tool displayed horizontally.
See attached image:
Possibly this option could be added to the Label drop down menu.

 629 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Viewports - not retaining positions? Closed-- 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?



 630 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Select entities by type Closed-- Task Description

please see:

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...”

 636 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLow 64 bit compilation Closed-- Task Description


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!

 683 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Convert Spline to Polyline tool Closed-- 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 BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow 3.0.5 -snap / info feedback problems Closed-- 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.

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.

775QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLowNote book tool for QCADAssigned1-- 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!

776QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLowExtra ' isometric' buttons for using Line from Angle.Assigned1-- 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.
