Hello. I am user of DipTrace for over 3 years. I've tried other software like Eagle and Altium and I simply love DipTrace and its way to do things simpler and confortable. But I've seen some ways to improve this software. Some of this are ideas of mine, others I've seen in other software and others I've seen in this forum:

- Reusable blocks: The MOST important for me (seen in Altium and coming soon in Autodesk Eagle). I mean, I can to copy and paste entire blocks from and old schematic and reuse. But there's no way to reuse PCB placement and routing, wich is the more painful and long part of my work. I had finished some boards in five minutes if I could use this feature.

- Image importing: I don't like Eagle. But I have to keep it installed because I need it for importing libraries (OK) and importing logos, with its BMP import system (and them export for DT as component). It would be good to have native BMP importing.

- Menus rescaling: I've seen people here asking for this feature. What happens if I want to see complete name of components (left menu) draging the bar? This is specially painful in a 2K or 4K resolution screen, that makes DT unusable. But about the screen resolution I've read that DT team will fix on the next update.

- Plus: More exporting options for 3D view: I usually export 3D view to SolidWorks. One fancy feature, although not necessary, would be the option to export silkscreen and traces.


I think DipTrace have all the chances to fight Eagle on its new Autodesk version and even Altium, so guys, come on!

This would make my work faster too. I would really like that option.
