Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

Is there going to be any improvements to routing functions? It would be really nice to have a function that could route multiple circuits at once, next to each other. Also, it would be helpful to have a “smart router” where you could draw a circuit and it would automatically contour itself around ex...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

Excellent! Thank you very much for all of those fixes.

Im not sure I understand what the "routing by NumLock" option is? Is there any further documentation on what that does?

Thanks
Ben

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

The library Import from kicad works for the parts but not not for the footprints. Programmer and tester reported: KiCAD library doesn't have footprints and pin to pad connections, so it is impossible to import them in frame of library import. In KiCAD footprints should be attached in Schematic, we ...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

In 3.3 zoom level and screen position is stored and when you click Undo first it shows you screen after change, then what thing is actually made (state before change). In 3.2 and earlier zoom level and position was not stored and you did not see actual changes if they are not on your current screen...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

Great job with the new version! Lots of nice new features. However there is one huge annoyance I have found and was hoping it was just an incorrect setting or something. When you use undo/redo, it also changes/undos the zoom level. This is extremely frustrating if you are trying to see changes befor...

Re: teardrop

I wish this was available now, but glad to at least hear this is still alive and on the Diptrace crews' to-do list. Looking forward to future releases with this much-needed feature added! I know this is an annoying million dollar question, but....are we perhaps looking at short term a couple months?...

4/5 pin DPAK pattern not included??

Quick question. Does Diptrace have the 4 pin (5 pin including tab) smaller DPAK ( not the larger D2PAK) included anywhere in the libraries? I cant find it in the general "TO" patterns section, but maybe some custom component happens to be in 4 or 5 pin DPAK format that I could sub in? Im working wit...

Pour area calculator

Hi, I posted this in the main forum, but since its apparently not possible currently, I figured I would post it in the "features request" section here. Im using pours for some heat sinks around D2PAK components and it would be nice if Diptrace could just give me a quick answer as to a pours area in ...

Calculate copper pour area?

Hi, just curious if there is a way to easily display/calculate the area of a copper pour? Im using pours for some heat sinks around D2PAK components and it would be nice if Diptrace could just give me a quick answer as to a pours area in in^2 or mm^2 for calculating purposes. The pours are odd shape...
