Re: Non profit license - Open Hardware sold by others?

It is OK to release projects with DipTrace Non-profit under true Open Hardware licenses if HW developer doesn't earn money and there is no business agreement between the developer and the person selling the Open Hardware based products.

Re: Runtime Error 231 on Windows 10 64-bit

Please open regedit, find \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Novarm\DipTrace\ registry tree and export it to a file. Please send the file to DipTrace support. Then find default.reg in DipTrace folder and run it. That will reset DipTrace settings in Windows registry to default. It should solve the problem.

Re: BOM issue with Layout

You can add in Schematic a component without attached pattern. In result, the component will be added to schematic's BOM but won't appear in PCB Layout because it doesn't have pattern.

Re: Top Mask Layer

We added displaying solder mask for pads in version 4.0. Solder mask layer became overcrowded and we decided it would be convenient to display solder mask in contours only if copper layer is turned on and display filled shapes if copper layer is turned off. The purpose is convenience. There is no wa...

Re: External Router Question

DipTrace supports any external autorouter with DSN/SES interface. Besides Electra and Specctra, PCB Layout should work with Freerouter and TopoR.

Re: Top Mask Layer

You will see filled shapes on top mask layer if you hide top layer. And vice versa, you will see contours when you show top layer again.

Re: Update Component in schematic capture

I think the update feature works right. It doesn't wipe existing data in component properties in schematic if the same fields in component library are empty. But it updates fields from library if there is discrepancy between schematic and library.

Re: Update Component in schematic capture

"Update from Library" from component submenu and "Update Component" in component properties keep all data in standard and additional fields. But "Replace Part" wipes custom data in all fields because the component is replaced completely. What function did you use?

Re: Screen Rendering

It looks like a problem with graphics on virtual machine, not DipTrace problem. You can try to install VirtualBox Extension Pack (https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads) for better support of hardware on your machine.
