 1089 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD/CAMBug ReportLow Convert polyline from segments on locked layers deletes ...Closed1V. Oth Task Description

If you select (line) segments in a visible yet locked layer and choose “convert segments to polyline” (OG), the segments are deleted, but inserting the polyline fails.
So you can easily destroy locked layers by mistake which contradicts the idea of locking layers.

1090QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLowExport only selected layers to SVG and/or export each l...AssignedV. Oth Task Description

When exporting to SVG it would be helpful if there was a selection of layers to export.
E.g. when selecting only layer A in the SVG export dialog, only the objects located/displayed on layer A would be exported to SVG.

As an alternative or additional export feature, there could be an option to export each (non-empty) layer to a separate SVG in one step.
The layer names could be used as (part of the) default file names during the export.
E.g. Layer A of file XYZ would be exported to “XYZ_A.SVG” while layer B would be exported to “XYZ_B.SVG” etc.

When double clicking on an entry in the layer list just nothing happens.
I would prefer if this would directly open the layer attributes dialog to change color/name etc.

 1096 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLow SVG import: support scale transforms Closed1V. Oth Task Description

Add support for scale transforms in SVG import.

Original report:

When importing an SVG created with Inkscape, one of the elements (rectangle) is shifted (mirrored?) to the left.
The example (back.svg) is appended. If you open it with Inkscape, you see the rectangle should be above the “USB” label.

My impression is that the sign of the X coordinate is swapped for some reason. At least if I mirror it
using two points on the Y axis, it seems to appear where it should be.

Apart from this, also the dimensions are wrong after import. In the original SVG, the outer shape is 144.3mm wide.
This is also visible in the header of the SVG:


However, after importing to QCad, the width is measured as 40.7247. This is a puzzling factor of 3.5433 which doesn’t look
like metric/imperial conversion issue but like a complete misinterpretation of the sizes/units used in the SVG.

1111QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLowOption to swap right/middle mouse buttonAssignedV. Oth Task Description

Most of the other slightly non-standard CAD/eCAD tools I work with (e.g. Diptrace, PTC Creo Elements) use the right mouse button to drag.
So when changing between these applications, it’s slightly confusing/annoying that I need the middle mouse button to drag in QCad.
Even worse, the middle mouse button on most mice is the scroll wheel which is not really comfortable to hold while dragging.

So I’d propose an option to switch the function of the middle and right mouse button to allow users to choose the preferable option.

 1270 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Modify > Detect Duplicates: add option to treat reverse ...Closed2V. Oth Task Description

Add option to treat entities with identical geometry but reversed direction as duplicates.

Original report:
In the attached example, there is a double line from 46/28 to 46/-28.
However it is not detected when searching for double objects.

 1358 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Pasting is possible in a locked layer ClosedV. Oth Task Description

When the currently active layer is locked and some objects from another layer are copied and pasted, they are pasted into the locked layer.

 1387 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Offset tool not working on rounded polylines Closed1V. Oth Task Description

When “offset whole polyline” is selected and the mouse is moved over a rounded polyline, the preview is not working at least in Window 7/8.
This worked in older versions e.g. 3.6.3.

There is an example appended with an edged inner polyline and a rounded outer one. For the inner one, the offset preview is working as expected, for the rounded one it isn’t. Tested on two different PCs, one Win7 and the other one Win8.
