Re: Converting "Shapes" to "Pads"

Right ON ! You are truly good ! The first of the 4 "pads had a corner notch and so I' used the "Polygon tool". The others, well, what can I say, they were easier to create using the rectangle tool. Now, where is it mentioned that rectangles don't convert.... I must have missed it....an Old Man's eye...

Converting "Shapes" to "Pads"

I am trying to generate a new pattern using the "Pattern Editor" Of the 4 pads (Shapes) that I created, only the first one allowed me to access, by "Right " clicking the "Shape", the sub menu that contains the "Convert to Pads" command. That first one worked well, but I have been unable to access th...

"TOMG"...Thanks a lot !!! You are good and I now have a transfer and copy of my special components file ! "Whopee !" Your instructions are very clear and precise (very useful to an old "Fart" like myself). So, when are you writing a manual ? (or a more useful "Index" ) ? I need your assistance on a ...

Re: Saving or transferring a "Library" to an external medium

Well, I believe I found the Library location. It appears to have the proper name..Andre's Library and is nearly 4MB big. However it has a ".ASC" suffix and when I try to import it into Diptrace on the new computer, I get an invalid file format. The only file that has ".lib" suffix is only 4KB long, ...

Red "Interference" circles

Is there a way to remove the red interference circles in PCB LAYOUT, that seem to clutter what you are trying to see ?
ie, toggle them ON and OFF.

Re: Components on the bottom side

I also plan on using the "Route Keepout" function as well as doing a "Copper Pour". Again it would be nice if the "Index" covered some of these subjects. IS somebody writing a book on the "Care and Feeding of Diptrace" ??
Thanks again. Andre

Components on the bottom side

I wish to place decoupling capacitors on the "Bottom" side of a PCb, directly under the position of TQFP CPU. If I place the capacitors on the top side and then use the change side command, they are inverted and placed on the bottom layer. However the "Ratlines" get all mixed up. If I place "static ...

Re: Saving or transferring a "Library" to an external medium

Thank you. I did go there before but unfortunately the sub-folder "My Libraries" is completely empty.
The "Windows File Search " function should be able to find it, if I can give it the "Real" name under which Diptrace stores it.
