Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

Ok, I'll give it a go. I'm not sure what "bug in conversion methods" might be, but I'll let that slide. :D

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

OK, sounds like the smart money is to install DIPTRACE4 in it's own folder and have copies of all my personal libraries and projects in case I have issues I can drop back to version 3. Are all my personal libraries compatible with version 4? No changes in the projects to open then in version 4?

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

Thanks for making the Catalina-compatible version for MacOS! I have one question: how can I migrate my projects and libraries created under Diptrace 3 to Diptrace 4? Do I need to copy files somewhere in the application package contents hierarchy from 3 to 4? I have the same question, but not for Ap...

Re: JST Connectors?

Thanks, I usually use the EH ones, but I could be convinced to use the PH ones on projects if they're already made. I like the 3D models for visualizing the board, they're a lot harder than making the parts.

JST Connectors?

I'm looking for some common JST connectors, it's hard to believe nobody has created a library of these parts, they're very common! I use the EH, PH, and ZH ones a lot, and I end up just leaving a header with the correct spacing for the connector. I see these connectors on a host of products, so I kn...

Component lead lengths in 3D model

Is there any way to "trim" the thru-hole component leads in the 3D view so they don't stick out a mile on the opposite side of the board? I saw a topic on a search with the same question in 2011, I figured in five years it might have been addressed. 8-)
