Re: DipTrace 4.0 beta

Was laying out an 'LGA' pattern, at least that is what Nordic called it, and decided to try 4.0, nope, same issues: No means to name pins the same name ie, Nordic called all Vcc pins 103 as in pin number.

So you're supporting Digikey even with them supporting KiCAD? digikey-partner-kicad-library-master.zip digikey-kicad-library-master.zip I did enjoy the...

Line Text and Shape be given a Color property

If I place a GND Net port then connect it to a device I can select the wire and change the color to green, from then on any wire attached to a GND net turns green. I would be a good thing to add color to Net Classes and drawing objects, that way we could create colored net ports.

Re: PCB: F12

I too would like a 'Preference' page full of things each user prefers, I've turned the speakers off on the beta since it seems to want to drive me insane with sound, it would be a good thing if we could disable sound prompts and just use the window pop up.

Investigated a bit: Looks like it was related to Common Pad Properties of the pattern (Pad Properties button) which changes all defaul...
