Re: Holes in thermal SMT pads in Pattern Editor?

You can put small through-hole pads over thermal pad in Pattern Editor. When you attach the pattern to a component in Component Editor or Schematic link thermal pad and through-hole pads to the same pin. That will prevent further DRC and connectivity errors in PCB Layout.

Re: Any News on a new Release?

Interactive router will prevent connecting two different nets into one net because it will push obstacles or shove between them.
In current version you can enable "Route -> Lock Net structure" to prevent net merging.

Re: Missing import Gerber Dimensions

This is not bug. We excluded dimension layers in Gerber import as it is impossible to convert shapes to dimension objects.

Re: 3D view of panelized PCB

This is odd way of using 3D preview. The tool needs one board outline to build solid body. With multiple outlines it shows unpredictable result.

Re: Copy and paste quits working

Temp file should be created in C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp\DipTrace\ folder when you copy something. If the file is not created by any reason the paste function doesn't work. Did you try to add exceptions in antivirus setup( or temporary disable antivirus) and start the program as administrator...

Make sure there is the folder where 3D models have been actually installed, otherwise press Add button and specify 3D models folder. 2. Open "Vie...
