Re: Cursor Position Stuck at 0,0

I figured out what the problem was. Somehow the grid got set to 100000 mil, so the closest grid point to snap to was 0,0. I fixed the grid, and now things work normally. I'm not sure how the grid got changed. 100000 mil is not one of the values in the drop down list. Perhaps something got accidental...

Net Name Color

I have successfully imported Protel format netlists into the PCB Editor and created a PCB. However, I have not found any way of importing an updated netlist without overwriting the existing layout. I know that this is possible for DipTrace schematics. Is there any way to do it with a netlist generat...

Re: Orcad to DipTrace ?

I'm using Orcad 17.2 The "or" was added at the beginning of the DLL name at some point after version 9, and the 64 is for libraries that are 64 bit. The protel2.dll is probably the correct one for your version of Capture. The main point is that it I was able to import a Protel format netlist into Di...

Re: Orcad to DipTrace ?

I have successfully imported a Protel format Orcad netlist generated using the orprotel264.dll formatter. This can be selected in the list of formatters on the "other" tab in the Create Netlist dialog in Capture.
