Gerber Export File Settings

How would I transfer my gerber export file settings to DipTrace 4.0.0.0 on a Mac?
Previously these were located in a DipTrace user directory and called gsettings.dat.

Re: RefDes silkscreen rotaion deriction

Agreed. It is especially annoying on circular PCBs.

Varying Pad Stacks

I'm trying to create a footprint pad stack that has different pad shapes on different layers.
Most other PCB tools can do this.
Can this feature be added to DipTrace?

Re: 2.3.5 beta with STEP/IGES available

Good news on the update! Any ideas when the native Mac OS version might be available?

Re: DipTrace for Mac OS X

I agree as well. Our department may be switching to Macs and having a native PCB design package would tip the scales. If DipTrace would just place a few ads in some of the developer sites and magazines there would be a stampede. No one really likes the alternatives but no one knows about DipTrace . ...

would you say it's better to etch a pcb board ?? or cut it out

Probably hate to hear this but it only costs about $10 (plus shipping) to get ten prototype PCBs (5 x 5 cm).
The etching solutions/developer etc. probably cost more than this.

Re: DipTrace for Mac OS X

Native DipTrace on the Mac would be terrific -- no more annoying flashes and cumbersome DOS file hierarchies.
I've recently converted my department to all use DipTrace and we're considering switching everyone over to Macs. A Mac native DipTrace would be the icing on the cake.

Turning off panelization view

Is there a way to turn off the panelization view? I just need to export the single PCB and then would like to return to the panelization view. This is used in switching between prototype and production views of the PCB.
