Re: Proper PDF export (with searchable text etc.)

Why would someone not try to search a schematic in PDF format? Isn't this the most natural thing in the world to do? A schematic that is just a picture is totally useless to me.Just like any other PDF that doesn't contain searchable text.

Re: Proper PDF export (with searchable text etc.)

Just for the record: using the TrueType fonts for part markings proved to be not feasible. Sooner or later all the text turns into garbage no matter if using OpenGL, DirectX or GDI. Restarting only fixes this temporarily. The only possibility seems to be to use vector fonts and switch to TrueType (a...

Re: Proper PDF export (with searchable text etc.)

OK, I see. Has to be done separately for part markings, bus connections, pin numbers and text (where each text object already existing is not affected). But OK, that's better than nothing. TrueType fonts seems to slow dawn the drawing quite considerably, though. I.e. moving around a big schematic be...

Proper PDF export (with searchable text etc.)

I'm used to work with schematics that contain searchable text (but also netlists and links) at work, so understand the tool used there (Zuken) supports direct PDF export. Now, to mimic this at least to some degree with DipTrace I print to PDF and run an OCR over it to create some searchable text. Th...

KiCAD export planned?

It seems the only real export option is Eagle at this point so I wonder if KiCAD export is planned at some point or if it isn't (e.g. for "political" reasons)?

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

Please have a look at the drill export issues described above. Also printing from the Schematic editor doesn't work correctly, anymore. When I print the very same schematic from 3.x, it's black on white as it should be, while in 4.x with the very same settings, it's all dark blue on black. Totally u...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

I just noticed that the behavior of the NC drill export changed to the worse compare to 3.x. In 3.x, both, plated and non-plated holes were exported to the same file. Which was what I wanted since I don't care if mounting holes are plated or nor and most cheap manufacturers don't offer this differen...
