Re: Changing pads to vias (is it necessary?)

Hi Jmuise- I think you're saying that your components are through hole. If that's the case, there probably no need to do anything since the pads will be "plated through" so they connect both sides of the PCB. If the components are surface mounted, then you can place a via close to a pad that needs t...

Lock aspect ratio of imported graphic

I'd like to have the ability to lock the aspect ratio of imported graphics. When I put my company logo on the silkscreen of a PCB I have to tinker with it until it looks right. Could we have a checkbox that says "maintain aspect ratio"? Aside from that, life's good! Thanks for your consideration. -R...

Lock aspect ratio of image

Is there a way to lock the aspect ratio of an imported image to be placed on the silkscreen layer?

Thanks!

Add manufacturers to "ORDER PCB"

I'm happy to see that PCBway has been added to the "order PCB" function in PCB layout. Any chance of adding more suppliers? We've been very happy with www.allpcb.com. Their pricing is usually lower than PCBway, the quality is great, and the turnaround is fast. I am not associated with them in any wa...

Re: Pattern Editor won't start from launcher

Browse to the DIptrace directory, right click on PattEdit.exe, then left click Properties. Look under the Compatibility tab and uncheck the "run this program as administrator" box.

Re: Pattern Editor won't start from launcher

Tried running launcher as administrator and pattern editor will launch, but I can't see mapped network drives. I discovered that PattEdit.exe was set to run as administrator. I turned that off, re-started launcher (WITHOUT administrator privileges) and now all is good. I think this is related to a p...

Pattern Editor won't start from launcher

Here's an odd one- Ever since the most recent update a couple of weeks ago I can't start Pattern Editor from the Launcher. Schematic Capture, PCB Layout, and Component Editor all launch as they should, but if I click on Pattern Editor, nothing happens. I can still launch it by double clicking PattEd...

Re: Diptrace Launcher 3.1.0.1 and mapped drives

The same thing is still happening with 3.3.0.1. If no one else is seeing this it could just be something strange about my computer- but I have stumbled on an interesting fix. When I install Diptrace it **seems** to be running with administrator privileges even though the "run as administrator" box u...
