Re: How to put the trademark symbol on silk layer

It always worked for me, even using Symbol and other Wingdings fonts ... Rick, in charmap you don't just select the char, you have to double click on it, it should show in the small text box at the bottom of the window, and then you can click on copy button (Ctrl+C doesn't work). btw. I'm still usin...

Re: How to put the trademark symbol on silk layer

read again my previous message, you'll effectively got a dash when you paste the char, but this will change (transform to correct char) to the selected char once you select the correct Truetype font in the properties in the right pannel.

Re: net ames on tracks in PCB module

Sorry, but I don't understand your answer. Giving names to nets is NOT the problem, we were already able to (and were used to) rename them directly. The proposed functionnality is to "show net name" as in Altium/Kicad during routing. The net name is drawn on the net itself. http://www.firstpr.com.au...

disable Silk printing for each part separately

In PCB module, it would be nice if we can disable the Silk for each part separately. This is needed sometimes for some mechanical parts and actually I'm just forced to create a second identical part without the silk screen :(

Re: How to put the trademark symbol on silk layer

The easiest way I found is to use a Truetype font. 1- In Windows, launch charmap application (in start button>>Execute>> type charmap) 2- In Charmap select the font you want, let's say ARIAL 3- in the char map, choose your (R) char (double click), in Arial, it's the Alt+0174, and click COPY button g...

Add background colors or schematic objects

Hello, can you, please, add the possibility to assign a background color to graphical closed primitives (rectangle and circle mainly)? We need to make parts visible on schematics and adding a yellow or green background can make the schematic really easier to read (actually all parts are transparent)...
