Re: DipTrace 4.0 beta - Black background in Component Editor

There is such a selection in the Schematic Editor, but not in the Component Editor or the Pattern Editor. This also seems to be true in Version 3.3, but the scheme there has a white background, with which I am OK. From memory, I believe that you set the background colour in Schematic Capture that t...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 beta

Since in practice you always need to include the drill file ..... when you must manually rename the "through.drl" file .... Quite right. Most board shops want to see the drill file saved as .txt not .drl ................... so please give us a tick box option to have it saved in the usual format (....

Pushed, this really needs a refinement.
The next updated version of DipTrace is due out in about 2 months time. Let's hope Alex & Serg have worked on the title box to bring Tom's excellent suggestion to fruition.

Please add "Unpour All Copper Pours" to the Objects menu.
I agree that this would save quite a lot of time for me too. Thanks Tom for the suggestion.

Re: Background colors for filled drawings - redux

I can colour the above in Altium & do use it when highlighting signal paths etc to service personnel. It would be a great addition to DipTrace. We print these on a colour printer as it speeds up our service department's faultfinding. We also use it to highlight potentiometers (& inductors etc) etc t...

Perhaps adding a [Cancel] button to allow the user to cancel the renewal process without changing anything in the layout would help.
This is an excellent suggestion Tom. It would help DipTrace new-comers (who don't fully understand the operation) a lot.

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

That would be excellent. I hope the simulation software is good & easy to use - I don't know anything about it.

Re: 4k monitor display bug

Yes, I have found this also running a 31.5" ViewSonic VA (Vertical Alignment) monitor at 4K (3840 x 2160). The fastest fix is to reduce the screen driver resolution. In my case 1920 x 1200 does the trick. It saves having to sign out & then back in under Windows 10. I must say running DipTrace on a 3...
