Re: DipTrace for Mac OS X

perhaps you could at least fix the printing under Wine so that circles appear !!
We will approximate them as polylines. I suppose that will help.

Re: DipTrace for Mac OS X

The work on native Mac OS version was temporarily stopped due to huge amount of work and lack of resources. We have made some progress investigating possibilities and making short version of Pattern Editor for Mac though. We are now working on IPC-7351 compatibility, some long-waiting features and p...

Re: Push and Shove

I really like Diptrace, but push and shove would make it the clear winner. Is push and shove still in the works? or has it been abandoned due to its complexity? Development was delayed due to complexity and need to make IPC-7351 compatibility which is in priority over push and shove for many corpor...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

Now that the pattern editor is being reworked, I would also consider the option of defining the position of the RefDes in the Silkscreen and Assembly independently, so the footprint is charged with these configuration in the PCB Layout. Component markings is also subject to rework (not yet started)...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

Will we have teardrops in this upcoming release? This is one of the highest priority feature, but I can not promise that. Currently we are optimizing program for IPC7351 standard, so all those features are added (also all our new libraries are developed for that standard, so we do not include them ...

Great feature. I can't wait!
Upcoming version includes many improvements and redesign of some existing key features, so it will take some time to complete it and test all things.

It would have been nice to see some long standing issues , like graphics which appear on incorrect layers ( so as to effectively disappear ) , being sorted by now --sigh
Please point me to the thread/post or to the mantis bug where this issue is described.

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

1. The system allows to add more manufacturers even without changing software (all forms and settings are XML based), so we plan to add more manufacturers in the future (single per region, we will not add 2 US manufacturers or 2 from China). ....or 2 from China Can you add these Chinese PCB manufac...
