Re: Pattern Editor won't start from launcher

Browse to the DIptrace directory, right click on PattEdit.exe, then left click Properties. Look under the Compatibility tab and uncheck the "run this program as administrator" box.

Re: Pattern Editor won't start from launcher

Tried running launcher as administrator and pattern editor will launch, but I can't see mapped network drives. I discovered that PattEdit.exe was set to run as administrator. I turned that off, re-started launcher (WITHOUT administrator privileges) and now all is good. I think this is related to a p...

Pattern Editor won't start from launcher

Here's an odd one- Ever since the most recent update a couple of weeks ago I can't start Pattern Editor from the Launcher. Schematic Capture, PCB Layout, and Component Editor all launch as they should, but if I click on Pattern Editor, nothing happens. I can still launch it by double clicking PattEd...

Re: Diptrace Launcher 3.1.0.1 and mapped drives

The same thing is still happening with 3.3.0.1. If no one else is seeing this it could just be something strange about my computer- but I have stumbled on an interesting fix. When I install Diptrace it **seems** to be running with administrator privileges even though the "run as administrator" box u...

CSV export column divider

I'm running the new Schematic Editor 3.3.0.0, and everything is working fine, but I noticed one little thing that is unexpectedly different than the previous versions. When I export a BOM to a CSV, the default field delimiter (column divider) is now a semicolon instead of a comma. It's not a problem...

Re: Where are preferences saved?

I think I'm getting forgetful in my old age. I just stumbled across a note to myself from a couple of years ago that included the information you pointed me to, plus some additional info. It probably came from the forum, I'm not sure. Here it is, in case it may help someone else: Design-specific set...

Re: Where are preferences saved?

Thanks, Tom- That info is helpful. I tried that method of backing up and restoring the settings, and it seems to work fine.

I'm still surprised that just opening a PCB layout file that someone sent me changes my default settings, though.

Where are preferences saved?

Probably a dumb question, but where are the PCB layout preference settings saved? A friend asked me to look over a PCB layout he had done, and after I opened his file in my copy of Diptrace, all of my PCB layout settings have changed to the way he had his copy of Diptrace set up. Default colors, lin...
