Re: Feature request

I would like to hear from the developers what their opinion is on this matter. We follow this thread, but didn't reply yet. In our concept pattern/footprint is also associated with package, not only with pads and graphics, that is why 3D model is attached to pattern, not to component, and we probab...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

I asked this in previous versions and the question appears to have fallen through the cracks. Schematic Editor: When connecting "without" a wire, the font for the net name is very small. Is there a place to increase its size or can a property be added to allow font size change? I have added this in...

When I place a dual opamp (LT1013CN8) only one appears on the screen.
Version is 4.0.0.2
See "Part 1" text with right arrow under the list of components, click on that field and choose All Parts

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

Right click on a SMD pad and change the type to Through-Hole. The window will expand to show additional through-hole options but the "Hole" settings will be grayed out and unselectable. When you click "OK" and reopen the dialog the problem is gone. You shouldn't have to reopen the window to access ...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

In 4.0 pad dimensions, paste/mask and pad terminals are recorded to standard pad settings and if you change one of these for particular pad it becomes non-standard, same if you check "Pattern's Pad Properties" option, it uses dimensions, paste/mask and terminals from standard pad properties. It diff...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

What line widths would you recommend to use? It depends on your printer, screen resolution and what is comfortable for you. The issue with line width described above is only appearance on the screen when line width is between 1 and 2 pixels. When you print or export picture/PDF it always uses Windo...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

I have always used the DirectX graphics mode in versions 2 and 3 on two of my laptops and have never noticed it before. Used with Windows versions: XP, Win7 and Win10. The Windows GDI mode does not show this effect. All the wires are drawn the same width. Weird. Fixed this. In the next build D3D/Op...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

Notice the thickness of horizontal and vertical wires. Using wire width 0.2mm Half of them are one width and the other half the other, that's really odd. Version 3 didn't do that. I have reproduced the same issue with 3.3 (see below). So the reason is not version and changes, but the following: Ant...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

Looks like the download filenames are still the same? Not sure if you saw my message on the prior page, but it would be really helpful to us users if the new download filenames could indicate the version number, like the way the old versions did... "DipTrace3313.dmg", "DipTrace_24.dmg", etc. Thanks...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 beta

Hello, I did the update to the last version (4.0), and to display this 3D model, it takes a lot of time: https://www.3dcontentcentral.com/download-model.aspx?catalogid=171&id=609211 The .step version. In PCB Layout or Pattern editor window, when I click the 3D preview or 3D model button it gets fro...
