Re: DipTrace 4.0 beta

Installed and testing.. In Schematic, i'm liking a lot of the new features for drawing in schematic (snap, measurements while drawing the object). Nice to see that the search algorythm is finally non-blocking A little quirk: the "Place Component" window needs to be resizable. And while we're at it, ...

Little things we'd all like to get fixed at some point

I invite everyone to contribute. Please let's make this constructive by pointing out why it's a problem and how would you like it to be fixed. I'd also say let's keep it to simple things that shouldn't need major modifications or this is going to become just another feature request thread where we k...

3.3.1.1 Text as signal layer on PCB. If i select all layers it doesn't get mirrored on bottom side

If i draw some text and put it in the signal layer, then i select "All Layers" i don't get the correct behaviour: It used to be that the text was automatically mirrored in 3d and gerber generation, which i consider it to be the correct behaviour (flip the board, text is orientated correctly) Now it ...

I would suggest that the highlight stay enabled when selecting a NET from the list and scrolling to follow the trace or a way to lock the highlighting on that net using a keypress.

Line Styles

Yet another request for different line styles (dashed, dotted, ..) throughout the software (at least on schematic) This have been asked since at least 2012, but this reference https://diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=10516 is the one i find the most relevant, it shows an example of why line st...

Re: Bug in "ON Semi" Library

Let me re-explain myself. Yes, technically the part is designed correctly. However, for no apparent reason other than who drew the library did it this way, it is not conformig to a de-facto standard. It's not a bug per-se but it is a thing that can bite users and slip past reviews because who would ...

Re: Bug in "ON Semi" Library

I placed the component MC74HC125AD, i later changed the name to reflect what i was going to mount Please do try, i just updated to 3.2 to see if it was a problem in the older component library but it's still there, many of the c...

Bug in "ON Semi" Library

Hi, this just bit me. I've found out that many if not all multi-part components in the ON Semi Library have the power supply part upside down. The pins are correct but they are laid out upside down, so this can happen wrong_symbol.PNG and you find out too late that it's wrong. We reviewed the schema...

Re: How do i generate an assembly image? (NOT PNP FILE!)

That is NOT what i need because as you should know all the passives don't have a rectangle around them :) but anyway, thanks! you made me dive in the view menu anyway and i found the answer :) View -> Assembly Layers and select what i need to display. In my case "Pattern Border" was enough, but i ca...
