Hello I have use DipTrace for many years know and one thing that is a bit annoying is the placement speed when you use the increase placement quality setting. I know it says it will reduce the placement speed, but the thing is that the program don't use the computers full speed. my computer only use 25% of the processor to Diptrace whene it using the placement tool.
So I would like an feature were you can select DipTrace to use more computer power.

Problem is - placement is a VERY hard problem to solve, just stick to placing by hand.
If you design isn't that big take a look at TOPOR autorouter, its much better in this regard.

I found this link which indicates there is a close association between Novarm (the developers of DipTrace) & the TopoR autorouter.

In fact it goes as far as to state:

"Novarm Limited is worldwide distributor of TopoR autorouter."

Does anybody have any manuals for using Dip/Topor in mate for autoplacing and semiautomatic routing of 1/2 layer PCBs without hole metallizing (prototyping and individual production) ?

Maybe I should see on Specctra/Electra autorouters with better rule system comparing TopoR ?

What features does DipTrace now supports for elements grouping or pcb route templating ?

Is it possible to create some routing library (templates and special routing/placement rulesets) for selected element groups and transfer it via DSN/SES into TopoR/Specctra ?

I think simple "Placement by list", Manual Routing and Diff Pairs feature is supported by Diptrace for element grouping.
Find more features from here. http://diptrace.com/diptrace-software/pcb-layout/
