Re: DipTrace Team has the question to our users

The standard "Fiducial" as defined by IPC-7351, (1mm dot and 2mm soldermask).
OR is this Fiducial already in the Library somewhere ??

Re: Unlocking "Nets"

Unfortunately, none of this worked. The objects were unlocked and I also tried checking and unchecking the "Lock NEt Structure", also to no avail. I am using Ver 3.3.0.0 presently. Might this be the cause of the problem I am experiencing as I do not recall ever having had this problem before ? Ver 3...

Unlocking "Nets"

I keep getting the Error "Net is Locked...must be unlocked first"
How do I unlock the "Gnd" Net, or any other Net for that matter ?

Diptrace 3.3.0.1

When I uploaded Version 3.3.0.0 , all appeared to go well. Approximately a week later, I received an online invitation to upload Ver. 3.3.0.1 . I found this strange after only 1 week. Unfortunately, Ver3.3.0.1 erased my personal library of parts, of which I have created several dozen custom parts th...

Part "Manual" placement & Routing: Part "Automatic" placement & Routing

I am trying to make a PCB using part manual placement and routing and the rest with Automatic placement and Automatic Routing. I am "Locking" all the components and "Nets" that I have done manually. When I try to use the auto placement mode it asks whether I wish to keep the existing traces. If I an...

Re: "Overlining" text

Yes, that works nicely. Thank you. I wonder why both font types work with Schematic Capture, but not with PCB Layout ?
Thanks again, Andre (Any ideas on my most recent post ?)

Color change of selected components in "Design Manager" (PCB Layout)

When I try and locate components on the bottom side, by selecting them in the "Design Manager" panel...they do not change color to assist in locating them. I changed the "Layer" color, but to no avail. Am I doing something wrong, or is it possible that this function simply does not work with other "...

Re: "Overlining" text

I am using Diptrace Ver. 3.2.0.1 (November 1, 2017) . Does this have any bearing on the problem ?

Re: "Overlining" text

Thank you Jeff. Yes, this is exactly what I'm doing, but it isn't working for me. It works fine in "Schematic Capture", however ?!?

Re: "Overlining" text

On the connectors for the Input I/O lines, I wanted to be more explicit by stating that the connector was for "IN!" but was active "Low", hence, overstrike the IN1 that I generated using the "abc" text command. The "Tilde" appears as a character rather than overscoring the IN1. I tried both the "Vec...
