Re: Incorrect rotation data from export pick and place

For what it's worth, I thought I would add the pair of angles DipTrace displays for each case to the bottom of the illustration. The first number of each pair is what is displayed in the Component Properties dialog window. The second number of each pair is what is displayed in the Properties tab on the right side of the screen…

Sorry Alex but that is not true. Having the component flip vertically** when you change sides but the angle staying the same is definitely wrong. Specifically, the cathode of a diode pointing up and calling that 90 degrees rotation is 180 degrees away from the industry standard, and this bug is causing problems with automated assembly, requiring manual inspection and correction of all XY data. This really is a problem! Manually checking 50 diodes in a layout against the XY output is very time consuming and error prone. Tom also showed earlier in this thread that the angle in the "Component Properties" window does not always match the "Properties" tab on the right side of the main window. There is obviously an underlying issue here.

Thank you for your time and help!

**edited to clarify vertical flipping. horizontal flipping with the angle staying the same is correct, but not vertical flipping.
Thank you for information. We will think how to do "Change Side" option the more practical.

Thanks, Serg.

I want to clarify that this isn't an issue of practicality or my preference, but the exported pick and place data is actually wrong, showing the opposite angle for some parts placed on the bottom of a PCB.

Just another update for clarification. Here are two pictures of two diodes and their properties windows, side by side, facing opposite directions, showing the same angle.
