Re: connecting surface mount part to bottom layer traces

Kevin hello, thank you for your reply, and no, it is not April 1st! I should have been more clear in my first post. Except for the surface mount part, the board uses leaded parts, and all traces are on the bottom (the surface mount part was a circuit addition). The surface mount part will have coppe...

Is their a way to design a part in component editor with no RefDes? In other words, I do not want it to have a part designation associated with it? Right now, I have to manually change the markings to 'none', each time I use it in schematic capture. I see a way to turn off RefDes in schematic captur...

Copy custom patterns to new computer??

Hello. I recently upgraded computers. I successfully installed DipTrace on my new computer, and copied over project folders, and can open them. I made many custom patterns on my old computer, how do I copy them over to the new computer? I don't 'see them' anywhere in the DipTrace folders. Thanks - D...

can not edit bottom layer traces

Hello. I deleted my last post as I figured it all out! I'm having a new problem though. In PCB Layout, I can not edit traces on the bottom layer. I can't click or highlight them?? How do I edit bottom layer traces?

Thanks - Doug
