Re: Lost linebreaks after reading .asc file back into DipTrace

Hi Alex, thanks for the confirmation. While fixing this issue, would you also look into allowing empty lines in the multi-line entries? Right now, empty lines are removed in the PCB editor (tables). That makes formatting text nicely easier.Thanks.

Lost linebreaks after reading .asc file back into DipTrace

Procedure:
1. Create one or more tables with 1x1 cell for multi-line text. Use linebreaks (hit "enter").
2. Write the schematic out as DipTrace ASCII (.asc) file.
3. Read that file back into DipTrace -- All linebreaks are lost.

Additional editions (purchase options)

I do old school analog design and don't care at all about autorouting or 3D display. But because of the size of my PCB's, I need a fair amount of pins. E.g. if I want to buy DipTrace standard edition, I have to fork over $395 and then have a version with added baggage that I don't need at all. How a...

Re: Custom component text size

...though it sucks in case I forget to change the text after renumbering the components.

Re: Custom component text size

OK, I just realized I can turn the display of the component marking off and place custom text separately. Not the most elegant solution but it does the job.

Re: Custom component text size

Hi Alex, thanks for the suggest but that's not really helping as it changes the text for all markings. I need the option to change it for individual components. Is there a way to do this via the .asc file for individual components?

Custom component text size

Is it possible to change the text size of components? I haven't found a property or pop-up menu entry for this. Is it possible in the .asc file? I'm trying to adjust the text size for the component highlighted in this pic.

Incorrect copper pour around pad thermals

Hi, I'm new to this forum, so please forgive me if this has already been reported and/or addressed. Today I've downloaded the trial version of DipTrace and I must say I'm quite impressed with what I've seen so far. The main reason I really went with trying DipTrace is because it allows me creating c...
