Re: Panelizing: How to specify V-score or tab-route?

Also, may I ask if a pattern for "Stamp Holes" or "Mouse Bites" can be found in Ver. 4 ? Are there any plans to allow for the rotation of individual "Copies" in the panelization function.
Thank you.

Re: Panelizing: How to specify V-score or tab-route?

On the subject of Panelizing :how does one place links with holes, referred to as "Stamp Holes", between the different PCBs of a panel.
The panel command works great but I really have no idea as to how to link the PCBs together to provide greater strength in the PCBA process.

Re: PCB Layout

Dear Mr. Tom. I am turning to you as truly an "Expert" on Diptrace and myself being only a beginner at best, who hopes I won't wear out my "Welcome" with you. I do so, because your answers are always concise, clear and correct. I am laying out a pcb with some rather large power traces and placing ma...

Re: PCB Layout

As usual, many thanks Tom ! I knew how to move it, but what got me was the lowercase "r".

Re: PCB Layout

Found it ! Knowing that the command exists was a big Help. Having to "Right Click" on the edge of the CP and then go into the "State" menu..... was NOT obvious to me and possibly many others at my LOW experience level. I would have thought that simply adding another line such as "CP Sub Menu" or "Un...

Re: PCB Layout

Thank you Tom.
It must be me, but I still cannot find the "Unpour All Copper Pours" command.
I know where and have used thee "Update All Copper Pours" command, which is located in the "Objects" section.
Where am I going wrong ?
Thanks.

I am trying to "Print" ONLY the bottom Silk layer. Under "Objects", I un-check "PAds", "Vias","Holes", "Traces" and "Copper Pours" Under "Layers", I un-check "Top Silk" Then in Preview, Diptrace displays the "Top Silk" layer . Activating "All Layers", the "Bottom Silk" is added back in. I only want ...

Re: PCB Layout editor - Hide Silk Drawings

Instead of "Hiding Silk Drawings", maybe the user could be allowed to dynamically edit pattern Silk layers, for that immediate use, without affecting the permanent pattern ? OR, could a priority scheme be developed which would determine for a specific or given area, what would be placed on the board...
