Re: Delete Net in Layout?

Generally when one is done with schematic and layout... isn't it routine to check schematic to layout via verificaton menu? During this check any net that is not on layout will be found... Also, at least on my end... I am fairly often "renewing design from schematic"... So accidentally hitting the "...

Re: Copper Pour Issue

Yes.. there were overlapping points. I re-did and pour is good. Thank You!

Previously... had asked if Diptrace was adding option to import "board cutouts" via dxf import... is this going to happen for next release?

Am having trouble with copper pour.

Getting an unwanted radius or semi-circle on edge of internal board cutouts?

Re: Importing/converting 3D file formats

When you assign a 3d model file to your component there is a window that allows you to adjust your 3d model properties.. One of the adjustments is "Scale". I normally adjust scale till part fits on assigned pads. Not sure if there is a better way to deal with this issue or not.

Re: Copper Pour Ignoring Board Outline

Did you try changing the "graphics mode" under the view drop down menu?
