Re: DipTrace 3.1.01 Library issues

The issues with the launcher is no feedback after an action: When you do something (Double Click, Click, Mouse-Over),usually there is a response, Busy ICON or system noise to let the user know their last action is being processed, no more actions needed. Not so much with the launcher, a single Click...

Re: DipTrace 3.1.01 Library issues

Usually the Library Group can be specifed immeditely before creating the new library. "No Library File" means that a file moved to other directory. It is a strange bug. I cant reproduce it.

Re: Enter the dimmention instead of moving the part manuel!!

Just playing with PCB Editor, I can place a metric part anywhere on the PCB, Select it and change the X and X values to move that part to an exact location. I can change the grid to .1mm and use the arrow keys to zoom the part at .1mm steps to anywhere. All parts have the 'pick point/handle/referenc...

Y axis off

I noticed the reference point (the center cross) didn't look right and when I zoomed in I found the Y axis off. It turns out it knows it is off:

Re: Does Diptrace have pre-made solder jumper patterns?

Sweet, I would have never thought of an ARC nor using PCB editor. I have TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2017 and LibreCAD, FreeCAD and use them from drawing. While having a better suite of tools for creating pads with the Pattern Editor I'll keep wishing for an CSV import of pin names and functions now that ...

Re: Does Diptrace have pre-made solder jumper patterns?

@dipicorg
I thought I had created a part called addressX4
How did you draw a circle and split it with DipTrace? I can't even get the radius dimension tool to work! I just figured out a circle using 4 numbers, not the same as point plus radius.
