Re: Net exisits on Schematic, removed in PCB, replaced with other net

Problem Found!

It seems that I must have connected the two nets inside the pattern for the Connector that the NETS were connected to.

Sorry for this.

Net exisits on Schematic, removed in PCB, replaced with other net

Hey all, I finished my schematic and have begun to lay out my PCB, but I have a nagging issue that I hope someone has a fix for. I have a power in and a ground coming in on a connector. In the Schematic, the Ground is Net 3 and power is Net22. All good there, but when I ernew the layout from teh sch...

Connecting to a net on another sheet

Hello. I have a voltage comparator output connected to a pull up resistor. I need to connect this to a net on another sheet, but the connection manager does not allow this to happen. In Attachment 'comparator' U4.1/pin 1 is connected to R7. I need to connect U4.1/pin1 to 'Fan Tach' on the other shee...

Re: Additional fields setup

Thanks for the work arounds, and I will implement them. But it seems counter productive to not allow configuration of the software regarding adding fields to default directory components. Especially since the software allows for the creation of BOMs the ability to tell the software that for all sche...

Re: Additional fields setup

So I need to go to EVERY component in the library and change EACH one for each category? Holy S*** that has to be the most inefficient thing I have ever come across in a software package. Just for the sake of kicks and giggles I tried to modify a part in the DISCRETE library. I get an error saying "...

Additional fields setup

Hello! Is there a way to tell Diptrace to add an additional field in ALL components by default? I would like to add the additional field "DIGIKEY P/N" to every component by default, but it seems I have to manually add this to every component on the fly, or wait till the end and do an "apply to all' ...

Re: Updated DipTrace, lost Power rail Identifiers

Alex,
Can you email/PM me where I can send the files as this is a client project and I cannot make the information public.

Thanks

Re: Updated DipTrace, lost Power rail Identifiers

Thanks Alex, This is very disappointing as I have a correct PCB, and an incorrect schematic. I opened another schematic from another established project and the file has changed in that as well. This time I have lost all my ref designators, and the names of all my ground types have been put in place...

Re: Updated DipTrace, lost Power rail Identifiers

Unfortunately no thats not possible. THis project is in a dedicated folder and I am the only one with access to the files. I would expect there to be differences as the connection from the power supply output to the board is missing on the schematic, but is on the PCB. Question, WHy wouldn't the Bac...
