Snap to panel frame & copper fill

Would be handy if both the origin selection and dimensions/measuring tool would snap to panel line intersections (corners). Ie. the outermost panel corners, and each pcb copy corner.

Being able to fill the panel borders/frames automagically with copper pour would be nice too !

Convert to PCB

When converting schematic to PCB (or doing renew layout), it would save time if the components added to the pcb layout page are arranged in groups by schematic page, and perhaps also in refdes order. Typically the first task of layout is to sort the components into groups, which takes a lot of time ...

Dimensions

Allow dual dims to be displayed, for example: 2.54mm (0.1") Allow dims value position to be dragged, like F10 for component markings. As is, dims values often overlap when they automatically align themselves to the same side as other dims values. Ideas-- being able to right-click and choose alignmen...

Auto Mirror by layer

Especially when swapping from Top to Bottom with the shortcut keys, 1 and 2.... Would be a good timesaver if the mirror view option could be set automatically by layer view. Maybe a tickbox by each layer to set the desired mirror state by layer. Maybe with a warning text that pops up at top of displ...

Dimensions improvement

1. Allow user to move the position of dimension text (perhaps F10?). Why? Because often the dims go in the wrong place and cover other elements. (If this is too complex to code, then maybe allow the dims text to be adjusted from left to right of the dimensions line. I think they always appear to the...

Re: Hotkey for "Full" sheet view

To add an alternative vote... I like that Full zoom doesn't include the border. That detail isn't needed by me most times- rather a close up view of the circuit. I'd rather not have to zoom back in manually every time. I suppose the Home key could be primed so that a double-click gets you to full-zo...

Re: Bugs that still exist in Beta 3.0

2) Bill Of Materials: The category named Manufacturer is not selectable for inclusion. See thread http://www.diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=10540 I wouldn't call this a bug exactly (rather a serious feature oversight), but I would like to add my vote to this. Both for BOM and also Pick'n'Pl...

Re: Pour issue in 3 beta

I found the same, but solved it by adjusting the pour clearance, line width and line spacing settings. For example, on one project I'm working on which was ok in Diptrace 2.9 with these settings: clearance 0.2, line width 0.1, line spacing 0.1 I had to change them to this in beta 3. to avoid what yo...

TrueType fonts in beta 3

1. TrueType fonts get offset when imported from beta 2.9 file to beta 3.0. Only fix was to delete, retype. (By offset, I mean the text is visible in a different part of the screen to the clickable part of the text - like to get properties you need to right click about 5 cm bottom left of the actual ...

3D render - color for pad/trace

Separate color choice for PAD and TRACE in the 3d viewer. The are currently set together as copper color.

This would enable us to have gold or silver pads, with traces the same (or slightly darker) color as the mask.
