Advice for graphics card settings

With all the amazing new graphics in version 4, is there any advice for setting up rendering, 3D, and all the many other settings in Windows or the graphics card (example: NVidia control panel) to boost performance / etc.. ? Also related to that, does Diptrace 4 make use of multi-cores, and are ther...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 beta

This will have to do with UAC. This will occur when you let the installer start the Launcher. Any programs started from that Launcher will have no network access. If you start an application and look at task manager its "UAC Virtualisation" will be "Not allowed". If you run it from the Start menu i...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 beta

I suppose the reason is temporary network unavailability. I checked that- and the network location was fine. As well as via file explorer, it was still working from Diptrace 3 on the same machine too! I tried closing, and then running Diptrace Beta pcb.exe runas-admin, but still no dice. Network dr...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 beta

Couple other things... 1) Left side menu has right-click, custom width. Fantastic- love it. However, right side menu (Layers,Objects,Properties) would need the same, please :) Too much information is cut off from display, and custom width would solve. 2) Diptrace doesn't see network or mapped (to d...

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...
