2448QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowScale lineweight display on model spaceAssigned
Task Description

Currently, the model space can display lineweights at scale 1:1
It’s very convenient when drawing small objects that will be printed at scale 1:1 : it makes it easy to anticipate the final aspect of the printed drawing.
But this feature is unusable for architects or users who draw large objects.

Therefore, it would be very useful to have a factor to multiply lineweight display in model space.
For example : if i know my drawing will probably be printed at scale 1:50, i set the value of the lineweight factor to 50.
Then every line would be displayed 50x thicker in model space.

1 Task Description

Case: Launch Print preview (first time), confirm dialog “Auto fit drawing to paper?” with yes, change after that the scale, close Print Preview, launch Print Preview - the last chosen scale what should be remembered is overwritten by the Auto fit scale.

The Auto fit scale stays persistent - even after reloading the drawing!

The option “Auto fit drawing to paper?” as a dialog occurs only the first time you use Print Preview - there is no way to change the chosen option later in a session or after reloading the drawing ...

2428QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowImplement reversing Leader entities on creation or afte...Assigned
1 Task Description


Usually I point to something to start with.
Sometimes I want to point away from here but then the arrow is where I just clicked.

An option on creation would be nice.
The capability to reverse the Leader orientation afterwards is another method to get it pointing the intended way.

A Leader entity is stored similar as a polyline.
I think it would not be difficult to reverse the basic polyline and update the dimension shape accordingly.


2421QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMake the preview of Shorten (LE) more visibleAssigned
1 Task Description


When we use Lengthen/Shorten (LE) with a positive amount the result is clearly visible when indicating a side of an entity.
With a negative amount there is seemingly no preview.
It is generated and shown but one can not distinguish it especially with solid lines.

Adding an orthogonal auxiliary preview shape some N pixels long would do the trick. ;-)


2418QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowInclude a GroupCustom widget in CAM Toolpath dialogs.Assigned
2 Task Description


Unrelated to OS or QCAD version.

In the postprocessor configuration dialog there is a group box called ‘GroupCustom’.
One can add custom widgets to that, rename it and so on.

Such is not provided in CamProfileToolpathDialog.ui or CamDrillToolpathDialog.ui

It should be possible but we aren’t really able to mix up things with the ‘Message’ QLabel ...
A reserved QGroupBox would do the trick. ;-)

1 Task Description


When switching from Default to Dark mode the text on alternating rows is hardly visible.
We can customize this color.

It would be easier if a proper default color is set on switching to and back.

Perhaps the user preferences can be remembered.
Perhaps only when the contrast would be affected.


2409QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowArea measurement of hatches leads to a crash of QCADAssigned

2406QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowSVG Export incorrect on blocksAssigned
1 Task Description

When using SVG export on a drawing with a block defined, the export is incorrect. Arcs are drawn incorrectly and parts of the block are missing. If that block is exploded, the SVG export is correct. Attached is a block on the lower left and the same block on the lower right after explode. Also attached is the resulting SVG file.
This is not always the case. Some blocks are correctly exported to SVG. The upper row is again a block on the left and the same block exploded on the right. It exports properly.

2405QCAD Community EditionBug ReportLowDimension scaling not workingAssigned
Task Description

I’m using QCAD Community Edition 3.27.7 on Windows 11.

When I started my drawing, I was able to change the size scale factor of (existing) dimensions using “Edit/Drawing Preferences/Dimension/Dimension Settings/Size scale factor”. However, suddenly this feature stopped working and now I cannot switch the dimension scale factor any longer.

I used this feature to be able to adapt the scale factor of the dimensions when printing in different scales.
I.e. all my drawings are in “original” size but when it comes to printing, I print some parts in scale 1:2 (in which case I used to set the size scale factor of the dimensions to 2) and some parts in scale 1:10 (in which case I used to set the scale factor of the dimensions to 10). Using this procedure, the dimensions have the same size (font size, arrow size, gaps etc.) on both drawings.

I have attached the drawing, that shows the described issues.

2391QCAD Community EditionBug ReportLowFix Dark Theme for LinuxAssigned
Task Description

The dark theme for Linux is broken:

- Some icons have dark background (expected) and black foreground color (that should be replaced by white of very light gray)
- Some icons have light background (not cohesive with the theme).
- The command history shows dark blue font on dark gray background.
- The grid’s ruler shows black font over dark background for the numbers.
- The icons folder is missing in the GitHub repository, but other themes have that folder.
- The general icons (open, save, and so on) are not dark theme friendly. A better approach for maybe all the themes would be to use something like the breeze icons pack for LibreOffice, and it will have the added benefit of making the app look more modern.

The icons issue is the biggest problem. They should probably replace the black color for white or very light gray. Even the red accent color is not ideal for dark themes, is not the main issue.

Attached is an image that show the problems and another that shows LibreOffice with the Dark Breeze theme for reference.

2387QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOpen Drawings on Layout Block by DefaultAssigned
Task Description

As the layout block contains the drawing sheet, the number, the viewports, it’s the presentable part of the drawing.

Maybe QCAD could be able to save on the dxf the “last state” of the drawing. If I saved on the Model and closed, it would open on Model... and if my last save was on the Layout”n”, it would open on Layout “n”.

At least on my work area, when opening a finished drawing, it’s the ideal for it to be opened in a Layout (if it was the active block while saving).

2378dwg2svgFeature RequestLowExport attributes on block references as namespaced XML...Assigned
Task Description

dwg2svg supports exporting the layer name (and probably others?) as namespaced XML attributes (`qs:layer`) which works well.
However I’d like to export block attributes as well, as seen on the following screenshot:


(...so `ROOM_NAME` would become `qs:ROOM_NAME=”Eötvös terem”` on the respective XML element).

Thanks in advance.

2374QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowAdd Spindle Speed to Toolpath DialogAssigned
1 Task Description

When editing an existing toolpath to update the parameters of the selected tool, we can update the Feed Rate and the Plunge Rate, but I couldn’t find any way to update the Spindle Speed.

Even when using the Edit Tool KE button, we can edit parameters of the tool on concern but none of the modification is applied to the current Toolpath because as I see, tools parameters are copied fron tools definitions to a Toolpath only at creation of this Toolpath, but Toolpath are not updated accordingly.

Could you please add an edit field for Spindle Speed in the CAM Profile Toolpath window?

Many thanks’, and best regards.

2371QCAD (main)SuggestionLowInclude more properties for polylines in the Selection ...Assigned
1 Task Description


Not OS or Version depending.

We can’t filter on some specific properties of polylines.

Handy would be:
- Global Width
- Orientation

- Polyline Pattern
But I don’t really search for them ... For some post-op I just need them all to be set to ‘No’.
- # of vertices
Filtering the complex from the more simple ones.
- Including Bulges or not
To seperate polylines with arc segments form others.
There some operations that don’t really work with bulging.
- Z values and/or global Z
This would make sense for some but filtering on Z is not common under QCAD as it is 2D.


2370QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRetain global width / segment widths when reversing pol...Assigned
1 Task Description


Changing orientation of a polyline with RV or by changing it in the Property Editor clears the global width value.

Single line pieces as polyline default to CCW.
Still the global width is cleared when trying to set them CW.

I didn’t update since 3.27.0 but reading this topic I suppose it still is valid.

2354QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowcopy-paste between two QCAD instancesAssigned
1 Task Description


I’ve quite often the task to transfer changes from one set of drawings to another (similar) set.
My ideal setup would be to open one set in one window and the other set in another window.
Both windows would be arranged side-by-side (larger monitor).
Changes would be copy-pasted from one set to the other.

From #2352 I’ve learned that there is a command-line option to achieve this.

Unfortunately it’s not possible to copy-paste between these instances.

And yes, it’s important to do this in two windows to see both versions at the same time.
So, tabs are not the answer.

It’s also ok if i could detach a tab from one instance and arrange it aside of the main window (like the property editor).
Than all data transfers would happen inside the same instance.

Best regards,

2341QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowmanage image referencesAssigned
1 Task Description

QCAD. ver. (3.27.1)
Qt version: 5.13.2
Architecture: x86_64
OS Windows 11

It might be useful to have the possibility to manage the references of the images contained within the drawing. A design could use recurring images, stored in a folder outside the one in which the design is located. Moving the drawing or folders (or changing the PC) will lose the folder references and the images are not displayed when the drawing is opened again.
I imagine the possibility to view the references of the images (and if necessary modify manually or with a pointer) with the option of: attach, detach, reload, etc., as in the example below (referred to ActCad - based on Intellicad technology)

2340QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowLayer List / Block List: Link minus icon to keyboard de...Assigned

Task Description

It would be nice to have the possibility to select multiple blocks with Shift and/or CTRL + mouse like the Layer List to use a delete etc command on all selected blocks at once.

2338QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowShow non-QCAD custom XDATA optionallyAssigned
1 Task Description

QCAD (before version 3.27?) used to show some custom XDATA, e.g. tag 1000, even for application names that are not “QCAD”, which for me was useful, so it’s somewhat of a regression. (I think it was broken when selecting multiple items, maybe that’s why it was removed.)

I suggest to bring that feature back, but maybe show it only when a single element is selected if that’s easier.

(As a workaround/hack I guess it would be possible to rewrite the required information as QCAD compatible XDATA externally I guess.)

2337QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDistance information should be available in 2D and 3DAssigned
Task Description

As per https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=9089, I suggest to extend the distance information tools:

* show Delta Z (at least when any of the elements has Z information)
* allow switching between 2D and 3D distance
* maybe allow to show both
* maybe change the text to distinguish between them (”Distance” → “Distance 2D/3D”)

2336QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd command to go back to previous nested blockAssigned
Task Description

“em” just always goes back to the main drawing. But for nested blocks, when jumping from edit mode of one block to the next nested block, it would be helpful to have some “ep” to go back to the previous block.

This was discussed at the forums...

2331QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowTabs: Control over on which particular profile used.Assigned
Task Description

Currently if I position one Tab (KT) to stacked profiles QCADCAM will use it on ALL in Z matching profiles. Practically in most cases would be to use tabs only on the lowest profile.

It would be nice to have some kind of control on which profile a tab has to be used.

Task Description

Regarding to forum post:

2308QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowViewport Scale FieldAssigned
Task Description

It would be helpful if the scale field that appears while placing a viewport would also re-appear when the viewport is selected after it’s already been placed in the layout. It would also be helpful if the pre-populated values in the dropdown matched those in the global layout scale field.

2307QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowTools to create dogbones or corner overcut Assigned
2 Task Description

The inside corners of profile tool paths have rounded inside corners. This occurs because the rounded outside the bit cannot make it all the way into the corner of the feature. Think of tracing the inside wall of a cardboard box with a can of soup. The can makes direct contact with the box walls, but its
round shape is unable to completely fit into the tight corners— there’s always a gap.

In a dog-bone overcut (see the figure in attachment), the inside profile corner is enlarged into a semicircle, allowing the sharp edges of the mating piece to slide through without interference.

When a dog bone is applied to the inside corners, as shown in the second figure in the attachment, the joints fit together nicely!

The following website explains what should be implemented More elegant CNC dogbones

There are two ways to implement this tool. Either you modify the original design (as implemented in Fusion 360) or you can do it at the moment you define the tool path (Estlcam allows you to do this for example). See the feature Corner overcut, on Estlcam website

2301QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRotate preview on/offAssigned
1 Task Description


I believe prior QCAD version there was no rotating preview. The rotating preview shows the outcome regarding to the chosen center point. I know that it is also common for move/copy. However, for me it is very confusing and difficult to chose the correct center point for a rotation if I’m constantly been distracted by the most of the time overlapping preview of my selection. This said if the drawing is very detailed I have to zoom in extremely to be able to snap to the right entity. That wouldn’t be necessary without the preview. Additional rotate a large drawing selections will compromise the performance - CPU is going like crazy.

It would be nice to have an option to turn this preview on/off.

2300QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDuplicate layout blocks with contentsAssigned
2 Task Description

Add a tool to duplicate a layout block with contents.

2299QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd support for multi line attributesAssigned
2 Task Description

Multiline attributes can contain linefeeds and formatting like MTEXT.

2296QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowCustom font type and size for command line widgetAssigned
Task Description

Would be nice to change default font type and size for command line widget.
