Re: Selection Tool - Lasso Tool

+1 to the above. At least the enclosing / touching selection logic should be doable with reasonable effort. Another desirable feature would be one that e.g. Fusion 360 has: selecting one of multiple overlapping elements is made easy by a long mouse button press that brings up a list of elements unde...

Re: Pad and hole disappearing in exported gerber file

Not that it is very useful at this time, but i can confirm this bug. It happened to me too and i found it in visual inspection of a simple test board. This was a 4 layer board where a trace changed layers from top to inner 1. The connecting via just disappeared. Just moving the trace a small amount ...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 beta

To all: It is now MAY 1st, still no 4.x0 release. How about holding back requests for tweaks until AFTER 4.0 gets done? Focus on issues with 4.0 beta, check to see if they have been reported before reporting anything you find wrong. Every time someone requests 'something' it distracts the developer...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 beta

Thanks for creating the possibility to save all Gerbers into a zip file with a single command. That is a very useful feature. One additional request though. Since in practice you always need to include the drill file, there should be the possibility to include that file in the naming scheme of the g...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 beta

Thanks for the huge number of improvements! It is really appreciated and i can't wait to put it all to daily use. Maybe you can clarify a question to which i did not find an immediate answer: I have a full license for DipTrace 3 and trying to apply the same license code to 4 beta ends in incorrect k...

Re: Top Mask layer not visible

Also, print preview of the mask layer does not show anything. This is frustrating since i do prototype boards myself _with_ soldermask. So printing the mask layer is required to make the process work. Now i have to export a gerber and print the mask from a gerber viewer application. A totally unwant...

Coordinate rotation and more

An extremely valuable feature when designing accurate mechanical dimensions in non-orthogonal directions, would be the possibility to define the coordinate orientation. At this time DT allows you to specify the snap grid size and origin, but not the axis orientation. Lack of this feature - while not...

Re: Off board components

I am designing a power supply with all the usual switches, fuse holders etc, in addition to which the design itself will consist of multiple PCBs like input filter, PFC, converter, control processor etc. I would prefer to do the design as one hierarchical multipage document to keep it all together. ...
