849QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMake maximum visible reference points of selection conf...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Provide configuration option to raise / lower maximum reference points that are shown for selected entities (currently fixed to 1000).

Original report:

Imported a spline-dxf from adobe illustrator. Converted the spline to polyline with explode command. Then no anchor points / vertex points / vertices were showing anymore. Simplified the polyline so that it had less than 1000 points. Vertices became visible.

I think some freeform objects need actually more than 1000 vertices. Also them need to be edited. Please increase the amount of vertices showing to biginteger

720QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLocked Blocks ....Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

It is nice that I can scale or rotate a block - but right now I see also a big plus in a kind of locking function for Blocks.
It would be nice to have a “locked” option ad least for the scaling of blocks.

Example: Think about Clives “Radiator ‘Cover’ screen” http://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=2060 and how you could manipulate this screen with “scale blocked blocks” ;-)

1373QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLine From Angle - additional option to select exisitng ...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Often I find myself clicking on an existing line to determine the angle from the property editor, then copying and pasting this info into the angle field, it would be so very useful to have an additional option in the ‘Line from Angle’ tool to be able to pick an existing entity which would automatically register and fill in the angle for me,then all I would need to do would enter the length required.

Hi,

we have already this nice tool “Angle bisector”.

I would really appreciate if we could get the same function for parallel lines to place a line exactly in the center of both lines.

Thanks.

It would be very helpful if the library browser had a delete function.

I know that this can be very risky for some people, but it is the easiest
way to see clearly what you delete.

0%
1 Task Description

If I move something and it went wrong I can easily undo the last move and start over without the need of a re-selection.
If I copy something and it went wrong I can undo the last copy but I have to re-select everything again.

It would be nice to keep the once chosen selection in both “undo” situation!

Same with similar functions like rotate etc. ....

1287QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowInformation tool shows absolute units in print previewAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

With that new feature the information tool shows the absolute paper units in the print preview mode instead of drawing units.
So you can determine the exact size of an entity in the printout without manual calculating with the drawing units and the scale factor.

... would be nice.

If I use the Info tool “Polygonal area” with the option “Add measurement to the drawing” I always have to edit the Value to make clear that we now looking to an area value like m² or ft².

I was thinking that a pre labeling (prefix/postfix) like the normal Dim tools could save me a couple extra steps ... ;-)

0%
1 Task Description

It would be nice if the Info Tool / Add Measurement to drawing option would use the same settings like the “Dimension settings” for Font and Text height. It’s a kind of similar function in a drawing and should have the same style. Maybe with an on/off switch?

At our QCAD Drawing window, below right corner, we have the Info displayed what are the Grid / Meta Grid settings.

927QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFurther options for the 'Add Measurement' toolsAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Absolutely love the new options for adding the measurements in the current drawing.

I would like to see an additional option for only adding the text and not the lines also, maybe a simple check box would suffice here.

Of course at the moment I am able to use the property editor to select only the lines and move to a new layer and hide!

1471QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFile > Open file locationAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

When working with several files is normal also to work in several folders, this can be confusing, expecially in the case where there are different folders with equal file names.
I propose the creation of a “Open file location”. This, probably under the main menu, “File”, when clicked would open the standard
“file explorer” with the folder that contains the current file already selected.
It would be quite similar to the windows 8/10 “Open file location”.

776QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowExtra ' isometric' buttons for using Line from Angle.Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

When working with the isometric grid (in any projection - Top, Right, Left) and drawing from ‘scratch’ as it were, without using the projection tools - I find myself using ‘Line from Angle’ the most.

It would be extreamly useful to be presented with two extra buttons when using this tool, a 30 degree button and a -30 degree button, this way I wouldn’t need to keep typing in the angle difference here.

Hello
It would be great when you can add a function to export a selected object as a list of points.
Is it possible to add?

Autodes DWG TrueView 2017 has this function and it is very useful.

0%
1 Task Description

It would be extreamly useful to have an option to either use - or not use leader lines in the standard horizontal/vertical dimension line tools, some of the drawings I’m working on need the ‘standard’ looking dimensions with leader lines and some don’t. its a real pain to have to select - explode and delete all the leaders I don’t need.

Hoping for an option

923QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDiagramming (Intelligent Orthogonal Connectors)Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi,

With the new block attribute feature available in QCAD 3.3, there’s little to be done in order to make QCAD a good environment for typesetting circuits and other diagrams. In particular, the only killer feature that lasts is support for connectors: orthogonal lines that connecting one endpoint to another creates a connection line; when the concerned entities are moved the connection line is re-arranged. I’d like to know whether commercial support for this feature is available.

986QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDetect duplicates - only on selected areaAssigned

Add the option to use a fixed path for the save to, open and CAM export directories.

(G code files are usually saved in on directory that the Control Program opens them up from so this would save a ton of mouse clicking)

1833QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDeep synchronize attributes featureAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

There is the Synchronize attributes feature which works well. But It affects only block references in the active layout(modelspace, block layout). If I want to synchronize attributes of block references in in another blocks, i have to manually go through all blocks and run synchronize attributes feature. That is the reason I would like to modify Synchronize attributes feature to affect all block references in a drawing, or add new Deep synchronize attributes feature.

1705QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowConnect certain actions and layersAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

When dimensioning my drawings I always want the dimensions to be on the dimensions layer.
When adding text I want the text to be on the text layer.
When drawing an infinite line it is always a construction line, therefore I want it to be on the construction line layer.
When drawing a line segment it almost always is on my outline layer.

So I propose a new option to bind certain actions to certain layers.
Whenever those actions are selected the layer should automatically be switched.

I can imagine this being implemented in the General→Tool Settings menu, where the short cuts are defined.

2213QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowAllow editing Spindle Speed separately for each Toolpat...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hello dear CAM developers!

I need to use the same tool at different spindle speed in a single machining file.
I would deeply appreciate if you could add a Spindle Speed edit field in the CAM Profile Toolpath edit window in order that each Toolpath can have its own Spindle Speed value (same as you did for Feed Rate and Plunge Rate)

FYI, the tool on my concern is a laser who’s power is driven by the Spindle Speed PWM signal.
I need to be able to do both engraving and cutting in a single file.
Alas! this laser tool is defined with a fix and unique number (99).
Therefore I cannot define different laser tools with different speeds.

Many thanks
Best regards.

1888dwg2bmpFeature RequestLowAdd support to disable hatch rendering on "dwg2bmp"Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi!

A friendly request to add an option to disable hatch rendering on “dwg2bmp” conversions.

Depending on the nature of the conversion and the density of the hatch, this may render unintelligible images (see attachments). The option could look like “-t, -nohatch” to indicate hatches should be hidden before rendering. This could potentially become an option too for “dwg2svg” or “dwg2pdf.”

Amazing product, thank you so much!

823QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd Midpoint Handles to Lines and PolylinesAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

The Midpoint Handles should be used to move Polyline Segments and lines. This would add easy to access stretch functionality.
Combined with a shortcut(hold down shift or alt etc.) to fix the movement to be orthogonal to the line this would bring a lot of extra value.
It would also be possible to to have another shortcut to easily insert nodes to Polylines (again hold shift or alt etc.)

Currently it takes too mush time to make the leaders with text and number bubbles.

1100QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd drag dimension (snap) along dimension lineAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

In Autocad when making a dimension when left clicking to place the dimension there is the possibility to drag the dimension to either side of the dimension. This is also possible with Qcad dimension, but it losses the snapping and does not extend the dimension line out to the dimension text.

This is very useful when the two lines the needs a dimension are close together, or overlapping with another.

Attached is two images one for autocad and one for Qcad
