Re: point measurement type.

When you hover mouse pointer on component the hint appears near the pointer and it has X/Y coordinates of the component.

Re: Gerber X2 vs Old Gerber Outputs

You can export drills to Gerber X2 file. But I am not sure that all PCB manufacturers accept drill file in X2 format. More traditionally is Gerbers + NC drill files.
Please notice, you can export Gerber files + NC drill file(s) + zip all files into archive in one click in version 4.0.

Re: RefDes hierarchy separation character

It is not possible to replace _ by . to make RefDes shorter a bit. But you can edit font settings. For example, change text width to 90 or 80 %.

Re: Issues using latest version on Apple MacBook Pro

Thank you for the report. Please let me know Mac OS and DipTrace versions.
The same shortcuts should work for the AppleMac keyboard as well as for Windows. You can open "Tools -> Hotkey Settings" to see the list of hot keys and customize them if necessary.

Re: Buses and hierarchical sheets

No update so far. We are working on the different features for version 4.1 now. When we release it we will reconsider connecting bus to hierarchical pin.

Re: How to prevent global nets in hierarchy?

Nets become global once connected to netports. So you can avoid netports to keep nets local within hierachical sheets. Use connections by wires, without wires, by net name instead net ports.

Re: Ability to use 3D files from multiple directories

You can put 3D models to many folders. Then open "Tools -> 3D Preview -> Patterns and Models Search", click on "Add" button and add folder with 3D models. The software will search 3D models in all folders you added.

Re: relay paterns

You seem to search by "RELAY" keyword in "Components" group. It finds generic component symbols without attached patterns. Please turn off the filter and browse Switches (non-IPC) library manually.
By the way, we plan to add some new relays in upcoming version 4.1.
