Re: router won't route GND - which is a different class than default

Hi All, I know this is old thread from late last year, but it is very relevant to what is happening with me. I have run the auto Shape Router and it worked great, all I had to do was tweak the tracks. I was working on another project and the Gnd would not auto route. I then went back to my original ...

Re: Pad Bottom Shape

I believe you need to change to the bottom layer, press B on your keypad, you should now be able to edit the pads. Press T to take you back to the top layer.

Re: How do I reset cross hair or is it a bug

So simple in the end.

Thanks for your help.

Re: How do I reset cross hair or is it a bug

Thanks Tom, Yes, you are right in that I moved the top layer without moving the bottom layer, and thanks for the hints on trying to fix my problem, I learnt a few things. I was trying to move both layers towards the bottom of the page and missed that only one layer moved because I had only "current ...

How do I reset cross hair or is it a bug

I have a small 2 sided adaptor board, when I have re-positioned it within the display sheet it goes a little funny. If I have the top layer displayed there is no problem but, when I have the bottom layer displayed it draws lines back to the top layer. It seems to be related to a small cross hair on ...

Displaying both Refdes & Value of component at the same time

Hi, I'm new to Diptrace and so far I find most things about it very easy to use. I do have a question about labeling the components in the schematic, as the heading says I would like to display the RefDes and the Value at the same time. I find this useful at times and would like to know can this be ...
