564QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSettings organisation in levelAssigned
Task Description

As an old professional “documentation writer and user inteface designer” but IMHO, I’m not convinced that the “Application preferences” are correctly organised for ease of understanding and using them.
These settings are organised in 2 levels. Some of the first levels have their own settings (e.g. “Graphics view”) while most others don’t (e.g. “Load/save”). May I humbly ;-) suggest some consistency rules :
- no sub-level if there is only one subject
- no items on main level if there are already 1 or more sub-level(s).
For instance :
- sub-level “Default Dimension settings” under “Dimension” is the only sub-level : then move these items under main level “Dimension” and suppress the sub-level ;
- the items under “Graphics view” main level (with several sub-levels)could be in a sub-level named “General” ;
Actually, “Graphics view” main level is the only one which has both its own items and sub-levels ;-))) ?

554QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAuswahlbox sollte auch mit der Shift Taste Bereiche dem...Assigned
Task Description

Ziehe ich mit der Maus eine normale Auswahlbox kann ich Elemente markieren.
Möchte ich einzelne Bereiche wieder herausnehmen muss ich alle Elemente einzeln anklicken (mit gedrückter Shift Taste).
Ich kann zwar dies komfortabler gestalten mit der Select → (De -) Select Contour Funktion welche aber erst über das Menue aufgerufen werden muss.

So wie ich einzelne Elemente mit der Maus auswählen und mit der Shift-Maus Funktion deselektieren kann wäre es schön wenn die Shift Taste auch bei Auswahlbereichen direkt zum deselektieren eingesetzt werden könnte.

525QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowchange the printed symbol of pointsAssigned
Task Description


in QCAD3 RC2 points were printed as crosses, in QCAD3 RC4 they are printed as (very little) points. I think this isn’t a bug but a feature. ;-)

It would be nice if one could change this behaviour / select the symbol of points.

Wähle ich für die Punktbestimmung z.B. “End” bleibe ich in diesem Modus bis ich etwas anderes wähle. Gut ;-)

512QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowModify stretch and Restrict orthoAssigned
1 Task Description

The modify stretch tool wants first and second corner, start and end point, then starts afresh. When I turn on restrict horizontally eg to align two points between start and end, the restriction sticks and I have to call restrict none, to be able to perform the next iteration, set the first corner then.

So, in the quest for a comfortable user interface, it was nice, if the modify stretch first/second corners parameter setting was not affected by current restrict/ortho etc. settings. Actually, that does not make any sense at all anyways, does it, a rectangle is defined by two degrees of freedom, isnt it?

498QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowissue importing from AutocadAssigned
Task Description

There is an issue importing from Autocad:
lines and quotes (both arrows and text) appear too much big (see attachment).
I can fix quotes modifying dimensions in “current drawing preferences”, but lines are still too thick.
Autocad’s dxf are opened with right line thickness but wrong quotes.
Furthermore, Autocad opens Qcad’s dxf files showing wrong quotes.

Task Description

Blocks: moving complex blocks with drag and drop should show bounding box as preview

355QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRemember function for dimension OptionAssigned
Task Description

I think it would be nice to have more flexibility for Prefix etc. option (not only the drop down with a given choice) and a remember function for all those fields like postfix and tolerance.

Why Remember Function:
If I use a postfix like <>” in the postfix field I’m only able to use it for this particular dimension type at this time. If I change the type (from Horizontal to vertical or what ever) I have always to repeat my postfix. The same with tolerances.

316QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowBlocks list and selected blockAssigned
1 Task Description

Wouldn’t it be nice, if selecting a block in model view would somehow highlight (just like clicking a block in the list does) the selected block in the “Block List” window?

(Feature request sounds a little harsh, enhancement proposal would seem more apt.)

293QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowmulti-select for blocksAssigned
Task Description

It would be nice if one could select multiple blocks in the block list at once (holding ctrl or ctrl+shift). Main purpose would be to delete them if they are not needed anymore. If possible, the same applies to layers.
