Re: bug - Paste&Mask incorrect after update pattern

Tomg, Real good investigation there. Alex, I would be OK with it if there was some way to know it was happening. I didn't customize the part in the layout (at least not intentionally) so saw no reason for it not to be automatically updated. If some parts aren't going to be updated, even when I selec...

Re: bug - Paste&Mask incorrect after update pattern

It is enabled.
Note the pad is modified from through hole to smt, but is missing both solder mask and paste in Gerbers.

Re: models3d.exe for DipTrace3 fails

I'm using Chrome.
I download the file, then open the folder to run it (I don't run it from within chrome).
Error attached: models3d_error.jpg
I'll try the 7zip on the categories page to see if that works (can if if download issue or original file issue).

Re: ERC ignores the name for power nets until you open setup

I see this issue again in DipTraceV3.0 (Beta) - erratic behaviour suggests it is a bug? I get the error in schematic when run Electrical Rule Check, I open the Schematic "Electrical Rule Setup", and when I run the check again there is no error. My Positive nets are NetVH, NetVM, NetVL, and my Ground...

"Library Format is Incorrect" when search for component

How can I find out which library is causing the error "Library format is incorrect" when I search for components in either Schematics or Component Editor? I'm using DipTrace Beta 3.0 (I removed previous versions before installing) - i.e. A search of "all libraries" for Name "xx" triggers the error -...

Re: Schematic - Drawing, Titles, Sheets

Thanks for the Drawing pointer, don't know how I missed that. I do use the Title Block feature, but - It wasn't intuitive to merge blocks by highlighting them then clicking "Create Text Field", need a note about merge on the screen when in the editor (now I know this its easy) - Need more fields. Fi...

Can anyone tell me how to fix this error? "Some component pins have similar numbers, so some nets can be merged. Please check out the following pins (Q10.1:G, Q10.2:G)" and continues for several other pins and parts... I'm getting this error with several of my multipart components, but not until I g...
