Re: component origin when doing a filter/search?

With the search filter still open, hover the mouse cursor (do not click) over a component name in the list of found items and a pop-up will show the related library.

Re: Suddenly cannot connect pads

Assuming you're using DipTrace v4.2.0.1, turn on all layers (right side of screen) to see if there is anything blocking the trace from being completed...

Re: Unexpected shorted pattern for PCB library parts

Can you post your pattern library (*.lib) here for examination by others?
Does the stock DipTrace component named "87758-0451" do the same thing on your system? I am unable to replicate the problem using v4.2.0.1.

Re: Remove 3D model from specific component on one design

...Is there a way to permanently disable it for a part, or do I create a new part?...
I think you will have to create a new part. You might want to assign a blank STEP file to it if only to keep the 3D Preview tool warnings to a minimum.

Re: Backward compatibility with v3.3 ?

I don't remember. In the distant past I think I was able to load the new version beside the old one, but I can't be sure. There may have been some shared DipTrace system files that were updated which could have caused some problems with the original installation. Just for the sake of a fresh start, ...

Re: Backward compatibility with v3.3 ?

For what it's worth, here's an older thread with a conversation about upgrading from 3.x to 4.x - https://diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=14447 As far as backward compatibility goes, I wouldn't rely on it. If I remember correctly, it might be possible to export a 4.x design to a DipTrace ASC...

Re: .PNG import

...does it add a fixed outline width to the image?...
I haven't a clue. I guess that's a question best answered by the developers.
