Suddenly cannot connect pads

#1 Post by Stevolution » 08 May 2022, 16:36

Hello all

Been using Diptrace for many month now and all was fine.
Tonight, suddenly I cannot connect various pads, traces etc and I have no idea why.
I connect a couple of pads and then it blocks you connecting to another clear pad (new component, so no previous nets or anything).
The end of the trace highlights a couple of red circles and it stops the lines connecting.

Any ideas? Must have done something but no idea what

Assuming you're using DipTrace v4.2.0.1, turn on all layers (right side of screen) to see if there is anything blocking the trace from being completed...

As a last resort, you can disable the "[ ]Follow Rules" option in the "Routing" panel on the left side of the screen...
