Show pattern directly in schematic editor

I think pattern is one of the most important fields/properties of a component, so I would appreciate to see it in the property view (right top) in the schematic editor. Optionally the pattern picture could be shown in left bottom of the component view, when (last) focus was set within schema are. I ...

More direct navigation to see and edit nets and components

Design Manager: When you select a component or net in the list this gets highlighted in the main view (like using search/find). It would be a real pleasure if the selected item would also get the focus, so we see it's property (view right top) and could immediatly edit its fields. Currently (2.4.0.2...

Re: Flipped Component Warning

Flip should be removed from BCP if there is no useful application.

Re: Library Component Creation

1) ... painful process when you're tweaking a lot of components and patterns at the same time. E.g. changing the pad ring dimension (wich is may be more a property of the pcb fabrication standard than a prop. of a pad. If your are lucky you can change the ring/pad size in pad template. Detail in PC...

Re: Request: Better text/comment tool in the schematic edito

Multitext field on components. To be displayed in parts/properties. Made available in reports. Used to document why you've choosen certain parts and values. Very important for good engineering practice. Forget about sep. documents for part level doc as IDs will get out of synch with your schematic/p...

Re: Reuse of existing Design. Hierarchy blocks management

Thank you for your confirmation Alex.
So I think with Diptrace it may be time saving to design everything as hierachy in order to make multiple copies of the sheet+pcb-layout if needed. Do you see any major drawback with this practice?

Reuse of existing Design. Hierarchy blocks management

Hello, let's say we have got an existing schematic with sheet type normal and corresponding layout/pcb. Could this be converted to hierarchy - in order to reuse the block/layout multiple times? This might be very important as you never know in advance for sure what should be reused later on. I tried...

Re: 2.2.9 beta has been published

I'm looking for a schema capture/pcb designer and made first steps with DipTrace. My first impression is very positive and I think there is a surprising load of features. When (re-)designing a PCB It's likely I have to place and move parts (works fine) and to add, edit and delete routes a lot of tim...
