Re: Gerber files

You can change layer color if necessary. You can do it on layer setup or click on color box on the layers tab to choose different color. You see bottom layer through the board as if you had x-ray vision. Normally you don't need to mirror bottom gerber files. It's ok that bottom text looks like in a ...

Re: QFN centre pad won't connect to GND

I guess you just dropped the via on center pad of QFN component. If so, the via is not connected to GND net even though it has physical contact with GND pad. Please place ratline from the via to any GND pad then update copper pour on GND layer.

Re: component part placement bug

Thank you for the report but this is not bug. "Part 1", "Part 6", etc. are part names (not gate numbers). They could be any text strings with and without letters and numbers.

Re: SnapEDA tool issues (v4.1.2.0)

Thank you for the feedback. 1. The window appears pretty fast. 2. Yes, the window is not resizable. What do you expect to see if you could resize? 3. It takes some time to send request and receive response. Delay on SnapEDA server is out of our control. 4. We exclude empty or incomplete items (that ...

Re: Peelable Mask Layers - help designing using DipTrace

As far as I understood you need inverted mask layer. Unfortunately this can't be done in DipTrace. You can do it in external CAM editor. You may ask PCB fabricator to invert provided mask layer, I guess all manufacturers have CAM software. As alternative, you can open print preview, select "Objects ...
