Re: Error importing Altium schematic

Unfortunately DipTrace can't import binary files. Ask someone who uses Altium to convert binary file to ASCII format.

Re: Changing Units doesn't auto-refresh pattern window in Component Editor

Dimension units in pattern preview on the bottom left corner are not updated automatically once you change units in Component Editor. We will consider necessity to do it. Thank you for the report.

Re: DRC trace width bug

Thank you for the report but I can't reproduce the bug. Maybe the problem is related to trace template 2/2. Please overwrite trace width in route setup and reroute affected trace, then run DRC.

Re: Error importing Altium schematic

The file has binary format. DipTrace can import Altium files in ASCII format only. Therefore you need to open binary file in Altium and save it in ASCII format. Then you will be able to import converted file in DipTrace.

Re: Incorrect rotation data from export pick and place

When you change side a component, visually it looks like the component is flipped horizontally (if component angle is 0 or 180 degrees) or flipped vertically (if component angle is 90 or 270 degrees). But that is OK because you see bottom layer through the board.

Re: MacOS 10.15 Catalina Support

We aware of the problem but we don't have a solution now. We wait for new version of Wine compatible with MacOS Catalina. Then we will be able to compile 64-bit version of DipTrace for Mac. Until then you can stay with Mojave or run DipTrace on virtual machine with Windows or Linux.

Re: Incorrect rotation data from export pick and place

I repeat the steps to confirm the problem but there is no problem. If you move component from top to bottom side it obviously looks mirrored because it is on bottom side now. But user looks on the component from top side through the board. The topic by the link https://diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.p...

Re: A simple User Library

Hello Steve, You want to open an component or pattern, modify it and save under new name but it doesn't work in DipTrace that way. You should do steps in different order. Just open destination library, insert component/pattern from different library (or duplicate existing item from current library),...

Re: copper pour problems

Obviously, there are short circuits between copper pour and the drill and via_336. Please update copper pour (Objects -> Update All Copper Pours) and that should resolve the errors.

Re: PCB: F12

The reason of not optimizing ratlines automatically is saving CPU time. That may be a problem on complex boards. We will consider an option to turn on/off automatic ratline optimization if users request the option frequently.
