Re: drawing has multiple contours

Make sure the polyline is properly closed (it isn't: start and end point differ). It could be that the software does not detect that this is one part as the outer contour is "leaking". After the polyline is closed, it can be converted to a logically closed polyline (if needed): - Select polyline - D...

Re: Customising a dialog from a post processor

It's possible to adjust dialogs through a post processor. This does require some JavaScript programming knowledge as well as knowledge of the Qt Widgets API. A post processor can adjust the CAM configuration dialog, the add / edit layer dialog, the tool dialog and the toolpath dialog. Whenever QCAD/...

I would still like to see what type of fonts they are though, cxf or TTF
The fist part of the list (first alphabetical list until "Unicode") are all CXF fonts. The rest are TrueType or other system fonts.

Re: di.setSnapRestriction (new RRestrictVertical (di));

Code: Select all

var guiAction = RGuiAction.getByScriptFile("scripts/Snap/RestrictVertical/RestrictVertical.js");
guiAction.slotTrigger();
guiAction is of type RGuiAction which is derived from QAction (Qt).

Re: 3.23.0.0 macOS more quirks to make it unusable

Krischu: your screen is too small to show all the icons of the toolbar. You can reduce the icon size or disable some of the tools (both in preferences). Of course, you can also access all the tools through the application menu at the top. Finally, you can switch to the tool matrix instead which is s...

Re: Visibilty eye off doesn't care when zooming in

Likely a bug in the current snapshot release 3.23.0.2 you are using.

Note: Snapshots are packages with the current development version of QCAD. Snapshots should be considered unstable and are not intended for production use.

Re: drawing has open contour - how to detect, where?

Simplest I can think of: Double-click an entity. This selects all connected entities. Where the selection stops, you'll find a gap. You might want to create a polyline which guarantees that the contour is closed (right click on entity > Auto Create Polyline). Note: such gaps are an indication that t...

Re: font listing and export

1. Is there a way to restrict font selection in QCAD to ONLY True type. At least identify truetype or shx or cxf? Yes, under Edit > Application Preferences > Draw > Text > Use reduced selection of fonts: You can find a list of all CXF fonts (the ones to disable) under fonts in your QCAD installatio...

It's a Qt / macOS 10.14 bug. There will likely be a workaround for the next release.

Re: Slow Processing, Too Many Entities?

I can confirm that the performance of QCAD is lower for such complex drawings. We are constantly looking into ways to improving this, but if you need a solution for larger, complex drawings now, QCAD might not be the right choice. It simply wasn't designed for this kind of drawings.
