Copy and paste from Pattern editor and PCB

I have to create/modify new PCBs from old designs using gerber import. It would be nice to be able to import gerber, select pads and silkscreen from PCB and copy to clipboard. Insert new pattern in pattern editor, then paste. Also I have to re-create PCB from image. It would be nice to have a way to...

Re: DipTrace 3.1 beta

Great News.

I can't wait to try it. Too bad I'm at work and don't have admin privileges.

Thanks for all your hard work!

Re: DipTrace 3.0 beta

I am using Windows 8 and I have installed 2.4 and the new 3.0 beta. When compared to 2.4, the new beta takes forever to load. Sometimes PCB hangs on the splash screen.

2.4 is very fast to load. Even on the same machine.

How to snap pattern origin to grid in PCB Layout

I have created a few parts that the origin is not the centroid.

I need to snap these patterns to the grid in PCB layout. When I place them in PCB they are not on the grid. I can manually type in the X,Y positions, but this is very laborious.

Am I doing something wrong?

ODB++ does not output component layers on Eagle conversions

I am in the process of converting older designs to Diptrace. If I create a board using only Diptrace libraries, the ODB++ output works great. I have a design that I have converted from Eagle. Only the parts that are in Diptrace will output in the ODB++ component layers. I can't upload the design her...

Re: Pass through hole size?

When you say pass through size, I think through hole size (like MonGater sugests). If you are referring to the distance of air between the capacitor pad and the poured copper, you can change that easily. Right click on the edge of the copper pour and select "Properties". Look for the clearance optio...

Save Pattern to current library is gone

I recently upgraded to 2.4 and I need to add some parts in the PCB to my footprint library. In previous versions, I could add it by selecting the footprint in the layout and right click>Save to library>save to current library. Now it seems that I have to save it to a new library. What am I missing h...

Re: ODB++

This is great news. IPC 365 Netlist output is also top of my list.
