Push and Shove

I really like Diptrace, but push and shove would make it the clear winner.
Is push and shove still in the works? or has it been abandoned due to its complexity?

Place Picture on silk screen- picture requirements?

I want to place image/logo on silk screen, . I placed an image and viewed it in 3d....the image appears black, does not appear in the same color as the silkscreen color, is this normal? Any DOs and don'ts on making the image would be appreciated. I don't want any surprises when I receive my boards. ...

Re: Schematic information Parts count

I would consider this is bug. I've used other software (protel99) and it count parts correctly. I am a licensed user and I'm not concerned about pin count. I do want it to count parts only as it should be expected.

Can not check holes size in PCB layout

I can't check holes size in PCB layout. If hole is part of a pattern/footprint, I can't check its size, I can check hole sizes in pads but not mounting holes like a connector would have. Why? It would be good to make this possible.

Schematic information Parts count

When you click File>Schematic Information....
Wondering why the schematic parts count is wrong! It appears to be including power ports in its calculation. Power ports are just nets not parts. It would be much better if it counted just the actual parts.

Re: Renew layout from schematic

Good ...I'm able to keep my changes when I lock component ... but not if I did ungroup. After ungrouping a pattern and grouping it back, the component typically has the same RefDes and pad numbers as it was before. You can lock the component then renew board from schematic by RefDes. When program as...

Re: Renew layout from schematic

Using the pattern editor is inefficient that's time consuming and a lot of mouse clicking, what if I want to just change one pad, I know I will never use that modified footprint again. In my last pcb I ungrouped my ISP connector as I was going to use pogo pins to program the board so I had to put th...

Re: Pick and Place + Additional Fields

I'm curious as to what data you are trying to add and for which pick and place machine.
It doesn't appear you can export additional fields, but the ones built in seem to be enough for me.

Renew layout from schematic

If I make a pad dimension change to a footprint. How do I keep the change when I renew from schematic. In Protel99 you were able to do it. Haven't found a way to do it in Diptrace. It appears Diptrace allows you to edit pads or ungroup etc..... but sorry you can't keep it if you renew from schematic...
