Hello, i'm new in DipTrace's world and used it for almost one month right now, just educational period for me.
I came from EagleCad, and first didn't know how to export/import my library, but i found out how it works, it's really great!
Diptrace looks more proffesional than Eagle and it seems to be working faster and stable.
Also the 3D feature is amazing, even creating my own 3D shapes is rather easy (by importing them from the internet)
Much more to discover.....

I have a question wich i asume more people might have:

I have to route some I/O output nets to a connector, but the connector pins are free to choose so it could make the routing more easy.
Is it possible to choose the pins i want to connect to the output connector in the PCB design and afterwards back annotate it in the schematics? This would make it much easier for me.
Now i have to change every connection from the pcb preffered routing back in the schematic.
The connector side is not fixed.

Is there a way to do this in Diptrace?

Thank you !

The feature you need is pin swapping. It is not supported in DipTrace yet, but it is in our feature list.

There is a workaround for this. While not as convenient as true pin swapping, it gets the job done.

See viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1780
