Circular board size error

Try this: create a circular board and then click on Design Information. The board width and height both show up as being less than the diameter of the board. I'm running version 2.1.0.7.

POT2T pattern error

This is very minor- but in Pattern "POT2T" in the General library the CW and CCW pads are reversed (unless you are looking at it from the bottom of the board).

Re: How can I make a spiral trace?

Thanks- but that approach ends up with straight sections connected by angles or curves. The "Q" of the inductor will be much lower if I do it that way instead of having a smooth spiral. I can see how this approach will work fine for capsense, because in that case it is not really an inductor at all-...

Re: GERBER Creation Settings

I think that's a GREAT idea! Several of the PCB fabricators I use automatically look for specific file extensions for the different layers. If I could automatically create these, it would save me a lot of time when ordering.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Re: Nets not connected between pages

I made a request a while back to add a feature like a page connector, but for a single net. For me, this would be TREMENDOUSLY helpful. As coincidence would have it, I just got a batch of boards in yesterday where I had forgotten to rename one of the nets so it would connect between pages. Since the...
