Re: 4k monitor display bug

Yes, I have found this also running a 31.5" ViewSonic VA (Vertical Alignment) monitor at 4K (3840 x 2160). The fastest fix is to reduce the screen driver resolution. In my case 1920 x 1200 does the trick. It saves having to sign out & then back in under Windows 10. I must say running DipTrace on a 3...

Re: Duplicate signal layer -> Mask layer

Many users have been asking for this.

DipTrace have put up a work around on youtube.

the ability to re-map keyboard short-cuts
From the top menu choose:

Tools > HotKey Settings

You can remap most (but not all) keyboard shortcuts in DipTrace V3.

Re: Duplicate some segment of trace -> Top Mask Layer

Me too. In my opinion, DipTrace is far superior to Circuit Maker, Circuit Studio, EAGLE, Design Spark etc. Novarm just need to get the word out. I try & do my bit for Novarm, both in this forum & the EEVBlog forum which is run by David Jones (a previous software programmer for Altium when they were ...

Re: Duplicate some segment of trace -> Top Mask Layer

take a look at this video tutorial that I recently stumbled over which shows one possible workaround - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4gLu3Y0StI Excellent Tom. Great find. This will save me considerable time in the future. There were 3 videos all put up on youtube by DipTrace over the past month....

Re: Duplicate some segment of trace -> Top Mask Layer

i think if diptrace can duplicate segment of Trace to Solder Mask Layer. Yes, I have asked for this before. We should at least be able to copy the signal tracks (bottom layer in this case) & paste them to the Solder Mask layer so that the solder mask is opened up to ensure extra solder is laid on t...

Once I complete my part of IPC, I will continue push and shove.
EXCELLENT! That would be great as this is the feature I miss the most having come from Altium Designer.

4. When exporting the pick and place file add a user selectable option to automatically delete the "Not Mounted" parts.
Yes, this would be a fantastic option.

We manufacture boards with different options loaded & I spend a lot of time "massaging" the Excel spreadsheets to reflect these options.

Re: Components database

I see that Altium purchased Octopart wholly in 2015. It would be a shame if DipTrace users were helping to push up Altium's profits. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octopart I have an Altium license but prefer to use DipTrace day in & day out. I do not like Altium the company & I would not be in favou...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

Can we PLEASE have this option: 1/ Copy a track on the bottom layer (can currently be done); 2/ Paste the new track onto the PCB space (can currently be done); 3/ Change the layer of the copied tracks to the bottom solder mask layer (can't be done). Reason: I regularly open up the solder mask on thi...
