Re: Exporting/Printing to searchable PDF

Maybe/probably the way how the printing is done influences if the text is searchable in the end. When I print to a PDF printer driver from LibreOffice, the PDF is searchable, when I use the same printer driver to print from DipTrace, it's not. Handling multiple pages is probably even easier to fix. ...

Exporting/Printing to searchable PDF

While I can print e.g. the schematics to a PDF file with a 3rd party PDF printer driver, the result is not searchable (embedded text is missing). Also each page is printed to a separate PDF and it has to be merged to one PDF with another 3rd party tool. Therefore it would be nice if DipTrace could e...

Improved Design Rules for PCB editor

Maybe I'm missing something again, but it seems the design rules check is not able to check some of the restrictions I need to fulfill to get a correct PCB. E.g. while it is possible to check "silk over pads", it seems impossible to define a minimum clearance. E.g. my current PCB manufacturer demand...

Zooming of Patterns in Schematic/Component Editor, Font Size

When controlling the assigned pattern in the schematic and component editor, it would be extremely helpful to have the normal panning (right mouse) and zooming (mouse wheel) control in the pattern view (also on the component side of course). There is a manual zoom via listbox, but this seems more li...

Re: No support for IEC 60617 symbols?

Oh, great, thanks. They were indeed in my "Libs" folder, but not loaded or displayed. Likely they were added in one of the last updates and not automatically installed.

No support for IEC 60617 symbols?

I'm a bit puzzled that DipTrace doesn't seem to support the official IEC 60617 symbols for electronic components as they are used in Europe, but afaik also in China and more or less the rest of the world excluding the US. I mean I understand that the US ANSI 91 standard is also supported, but simply...

Rotating a selection in the pattern editor

Some findings: When selecting several lines and pins in the pattern editor and rotating them as a group (whether with R, Shift-R or Ctrl-R), the individual items are rotated instead of the group. While it is possible to rotate the whole pattern with Ctrl+Alt+R, it seems impossible to rotate only a s...
