Re: TITLEBLOCKS

It happened again! I created a new schematic, saved it, then I opened the Titles and Sheet Setup dialog, and selected the Title Blocks tab, and looked in Sheet Template, and all I could find are the default entries. The one I created is GONE! There might have been a software update, between the last...

Copper Pour Dragging dimensional tips sometimes hard to read

Sometimes when dragging points, on a copper-pour boundary, the positioning/dimensional tip that floats near by [really cool, BTW] is hard to read against some backgrounds [see attached screenshot]. May I suggest you add a semi-transparent rectangle to nullify background interference [see attached ex...

Copper Pour Thermal Spoke Width as Percentage

It would be nice if larger pads had larger Thermal Spokes, etc. Right now [ver 4.0.0.5] there only appears to be constant width as an option. In other words, I would like to be able to set the Thermal Spoke With for surface mount pads to, say, 20%. That way, a 30 mil, square pad will be given four 6...

Re: Tool For Aligning Custom Pad with Mask

Whoa...OK, they magically aligned! Never mind!

Anybody know what causes that to happen? I have a new case, and I'm poking at it, trying to make it happen, and so far, no joy.

Never mind, again. I reopened the Properties dialog, closed it, and voila!

Tool For Aligning Custom Pad with Mask

Just finished designing a somewhat complex pad [TSON for a MOSFET], and wound up with a mask/pad offset. The only remedy appears to be to hand calculate the point transformations needed to gain the proper alignment. It would be great if some way existed to translate the points on a polygon, or reali...

Please Add Free Rotate Realtime Angle Feedback

It would be great, if while using the Free Rotate feature, there was an indication of the current angle as the object is being rotated.

Re: TITLEBLOCKS

To add to this discussion, I both figured out how to create a Custom Title Block, only to, later find, after using my Custom Title Block on many schematics, that my Custom Title Block was GONE ! POOF! VANISHED!! GRRR!! But, all, it turns out, was not lost. I realized all I had to do was find an earl...

Re: Non-standard Graphics Interface Gets Me Everytime!

Awesome. I took a cursory look, and one thing that seems to be missing is the ability to save my edits as a custom configuration. That would be of value when it comes time to build a new computer. That way, I could just load my custom configuration, and not have to redo the custom settings. Another ...

Copper Pour Pad Connections Ignored in Mouseover Gui Color Coding

You know how when you run your mouse pointer over a trace, all the pads, on the same net, light up either red or cyan, depending on if they are connected or not: Red for NOT connected , and Cyan for connected ? Well, I noticed that a couple of capacitors, sitting within the bounds of a Copper Pour, ...
