Re: changing corner radius on copper pours?

Hi Josh,

You can change line width in copper pour properties, it will change copper pour corner radius too.

Re: DRC does not catch missing nets

Some users design simple boards without related schematic. Activated "Lock Net Structure" doesn't allow to create and change any net in PCB Layout therefore the feature is turned off by default.

Re: v3.3.1.3 hotkeys on OS X

We have checked 3D preview in Mac version. We changed colors and redraw board, all works as expected. Please notice, you should change board color and mask color, otherwise copper pours and tracks remain green. Do you use version 3.3.1.3? Please open Help -> About in any DipTrace program and check i...

You can open "Route -> Length Matching", create length matching rule and add pad pairs. Then route traces manually. Obviously all traces will have different lengths. Length Matching window will measure trace lengths and show rule violations using red color. To fix errors you can use "High Speed -> A...

DRC doesn't search missed nets. But you can run "Verification -> Compare to Schematic", this function does exactly what you need.

Re: How many rules "class to class" can I have in checking DRC ?

DipTrace checks all "class to class" rules if the verification is enabled in "Design Rules -> Options". You can create as many class-to-class rules as you need. In regards to net classes, DRC checks those net classes that have "Use Clearance in DRC" option enabled. If you changed clearance details t...

Re: Net connectivity problem

If check net connectivity reports that some nets are broken then they are really broken. You can try one or few suggestions to improve result: place critical components manually, other components using auto-placement feature route critical nets manually, other nets using auto-router if some unconnec...

Re: Title block

You can create custom title block in title block editor. The block should combine revision history and actually title block. When it's done select the block to bottom-right corner of the sheet.
