I am a new user of Diptrace running on a Mac.

My engineer sent me two files of my circuit board in .dch and .dip format. I have been able to open the .dch file in the Schematic Editor and make edits, but I have been unable to open the PCB Layout. Is the .dip file the PCB Layout?

I tried using 'File>Convert to PCB' from the Schematic Editor, but nothing happens.

The *.dip file is indeed the PCB layout. Are the layers and objects active in the PCB Editor?


You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

I can't even open the PCB Editor. When I click on 'PCB Layout' in the application launcher, nothing happens.

'Schematic Editor' launches, 'Component Editor' launches. 'PCB Layout' and 'Pattern Editor' do not.

Never mind, had to do a full reinstall of the application, now it appears to be working.
