Since today, QCAD fails to load my drawings, with the following error message in the console:

Warning: RBlockReferenceData::getBoundingBox: maximum recursion depth reached: block: “Drukknop”

The block in question is the AREI (Belgian standard for symbols in electrical installations) symbol for a “button” light switch.
It’s a small and simple drawing (see attachment).

I’ve added a lot of these buttons in the drawing since the previous version, but there were some already present, and this never caused problems.

QCAD version: QCAD 3.4.4 Pro for Ubuntu Linux 32bit
System output: see attached file

 1017 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium crash when saving file with block attributes ClosedStijn Verholen Task Description


QCAD crashes when saving a drawing that has a block attribute added.
This happens both with a block and the exploded version of the block.

Please find attached the system info, as well as an example drawing.
In this drawing, there are three boxes. The lower 2 boxes are intended to contain text attributes.

Output from the command line:

 971 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Dimension properties: text position not saved ClosedStijn Verholen Task Description

When reopening a dxf that had the dimension text aligned differently than the default, the text position has the same X position for vertical dimensions and the same Y position for horizontal dimensions as the dimension line. In other words, changes to the text position are not saved or loaded when reopening a file.

For example:
1) Create the drawing and take a dimension measurement
Dimension Line on (X, Y): (110, 1680)
Text Position changed to (X, Y): (100, 1255)

2) Save file, close it and reopen it
Dimension Line on (X, Y): (110, 1680)
Text Position on (X, Y): (110, 1255)

The text height (in drawing preferences) is set to 15 and page printing scale is 1:5 (if it matters).

QCAD Professional on Ubuntu 13.04. See the attached file for the program specs.

Not really a major bug, but quite irritating none the less. :)
