2014QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowFocus on Options Toolbar failsAssigned
0%
Task Description

Scenario: e.g. Tools Move/Copy and Rotate switched to “use without dialog.

Launch within a drawing Move/Copy, use the Keyboard keys CTRL + Space to focus on the Option Bar - the field for Numbers is Highlighted and I can change it. Further navigation with keys on the keyboard depends on remembered option (copy yes/no etc what make a navigation possible or not. It looks like the navigation with the Arrow keys is focused on the canvas and sooner or later the courser will jump to the Command Line or Property editor. Same behavior with the Rotation tool.

2021QCAD (main)Performance IssueVery LowCannot work with big dwg filesAssigned
0%
Task Description

Openning a big file or doing any action in it, takes minutes to load.
Even dragging the scrollbar slightly left or right, takes mintues to redraw the canvas again, which makes QCAD un-usable for professional use.
Is there a way to make QCAD usable, after loading completed:
- Like suppressing edit until user says so,
- or taking snapshots of rendered canvases to another file and use it, as windows uses thumb.db ( for negative latency :P )

PS: I wish I could help a bit, but my hand are tied. I am just a java freak, I am opt to any idea of porting it to java, if she is still alive.

2034QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowPaint Properties to include modifying linetype scales w...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Previous Feature Request #1285, dated 2015, incorporated in QCADPro 3.24. I regularly adjust linetype scales on hidden, centreline and phantom lines to achieve the best appearance on the drawing when printed. I note the Paint Properties feature copies all the attributes of the chosen line but does not copy the scale. I have to change the scale of each line, even after ‘painting’. This copying all Properties is something AutoCAD does. I know I could change the line to Hidden2 etc. and tick the ‘scale lines’ box in Drawing Properties but that is not always successful- copying properties is a quick and useful way of achieving the required result.

In my example I can’t draw a circle with circletangent2 if the defining point is on one of the defining tangents. The tangency is lost when I try to do this.

2048QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery LowMove / Copy to current layer fails when reference point...Assigned
0%
Task Description

QCAD 3.24.2 / macOS x86_64 10.14.6

Starting with empty doc:
1. Draw any object (e.g. a rectangle) on layer 0.
2. Create new layer (”1”) with color, say yellow.
3. Select new layer
4. Select new object
5. Modify → Move / Copy
6. Click reference point
7. Click target point same as reference point
8. In “Move / Copy Options” dialog, select “Delete Original” and check “Use current layer and attributes.” Click OK.

The moved object stays on the layer it was previously on. Using “Move / Copy” as a quick way to move a selection between layers is not useful even though it appears to be the recommended way in a Google search.

Note: if “Keep Original” is selected instead, the copied object is placed on the current layer and the original object remains on its layer, as expected.

Note: if the target point is different from the reference point, the moved object is placed on the current layer as expected.

There are other workarounds too, cut / paste with “To current layer” checked seems to work, as does chaging the layer in the Properties Editor.

2056QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOption Duplicate layer (yy) inclusive all sub-layers.Assigned
0%
Task Description

If I’ve to duplicate a layer with a bunch of sub-layer it’s a kind of a Sisyphus task to get it done.
Currently I have to duplicate each single layer. Then in an additional step I’ve to address each child layer to the proper parent layer.

Current lack:
Marked parent layer with all sub-layer / Duplicate Layer / only ONE layer will be duplicated.

With other words: If I have to duplicate a layer with 5 sub-layer it requires 11 steps to get a copy of that tree ... :-(

2099QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowDIM Label, Square Symbol doesn't adopt layer attributesAssigned
0%
Task Description

The square symbol offered as symbol in DIM label is the only symbol which doesn’t adopt the layer color.
If I print a drawing in full color it leads to a black symbol in an otherwise colored dimension.

It is also the only symbol which has a solid filling what is confusing when you work with it in Model_Space ...

2115QCAD (main)SuggestionLowMove toolbars with negative positions to 0 positions Assigned
100%
Task Description

As it can be seen in the attached image, QCAD toolbars may dock to a position slightly outside the visible area of the screen. After having docked there, I have not been able to move them any more. Their current position is just in the middle of the screen.

The position of the toolbars remains the same after the deinstallation of QCAD, shutting down, restarting the computer and reinstalling QCAD. I kindly ask for help.

Kind regards

2193Command line toolsBug ReportVery Lowdwg2csv retains the last encountered custom propertiesAssigned

Task Description

QCAD Professional
Win installer 32 bit
Version: 3.25.2.13 (3.25.2.13)
Internet: QCAD.org
Build Date: Feb 12 2021
Revision: cad2d36
Qt Version: 5.13.2
Architecture: i386
Compiler: Unknown

Andrew,
While enhancing DrawFromCSV: Forum Link.
I had a peek at the new command line tool: dwg2csv

I would never come up with 115 columns.
That wouldn’t be efficient to generate entities from.
Although this way it is very complete and one could use specific lists to filter.
One downside is that the ‘-list’ switch return is far too vast for the windows command line.



Remarked that:
Only the first alphabetically custom property is listed under:
QCAD:Line & QCAD:Reference (columns 114-115).
And that the last encountered is persistent for all entities that follows.

Maybe this originates from a multiple entity selection ...
... what also retains the last encountered custom properties in the property editor.
Should I add a seperate task for that?



Also had an exception thrown:
Debug: dropped global XDATA (no res buf): “ViewportCenter”.
Discarted that as this very basic test drawing hasn’t even a Viewport.

Regards,
CVH

In the file provided one would expect *VARIES* in the property editor under custom properties when selecting 2 or more entities.
The key list is reduced to what keys are common to the multiple selection. (Here 3)
The values displayed are inconsistent depending the selection.

Select All » 3 custom properties of line 3
Select the 3 vertical » 3 custom properties of line 2
Select the first vertical and the diagonal » 3 custom properties of line 1
Select all but the first vertical » 3 custom properties of line 3
And so on ...

When saving a view, it would be great if the view also saved which block (model space, layout block, or any other block) that was active at the time the view was saved and when the view is later re-activated, the corresponding block would re-activate.

1974QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery LowFile > Print Preview: Cannot move paper in new drawingUnconfirmed
0%
Task Description

Yesterday I set up a Windows 64 bit install of QCAD Pro which shows the same bug I have been seeing for a while in the Community linux git repo.

Create a new drawing and then go to “Print preview”. Enable “Move paper postion”, the cursor changes to the hand icon, but the paper position is unable to be moved. Only by saving the drawing, exiting the program, restarting and reopening the drawing, will the “Move paper postion” function correctly.

Affected versions tested:

Windows 64bit installer download, as of yesterday.
Linux 64bit build from git, about 20minutes ago.

For what it’s worth, this bug is not present in this previous git checkout:
