 1232 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Command Line: ignore leading spaces ClosedJavier Valencia Task Description

Many times, after pressing the space bar to access the command line, accidentally an space character is added at the start of the line. It’s very difficult to see it.

The result is an error like this:

Invalid coordinate or distance ' @20,20'.

The request is for the command line parser to just ignore leading spaces.

Thank you.

1233QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLowTab key to cycle between selected objectsAssignedJavier Valencia Task Description

I think it’s a useful adition and makes it easy to select objects that are overlapped. I know there is a selection filter, but sometimes this is faster and/or all the objects share the same type and such things.

If I remember correctly, Inkscape has this behaviour.

 1235 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Remove focus from command line after command execution ClosedJavier Valencia Task Description

I find it a bit annoying that after executing a command by issuing some points in the command line, the command line retains the focus.

This means an extra Escape key press, and sometimes my hotkeys are just sent in plain text to the command line if I forget to escape.

Something like this:

- hotkey: ss (stretch)
- click for first point
- click for second point
- click for reference
- hotkey: eh (restrict horizontal)
- spacebar
- enter distance by hand
- return (execute)

At this point, if I want to repeat another “stretch” command, I have to disable the horizontal restriction by hand (en), and start again.

The problem is that if I forget to press the Escape key, my “en” command is issued in the command line, and I keep looking at the screen because the hotkey was not issued.

What would be desirable IMHO after a command execution would be to reset any restrictions applied and remove focus from command line.
