still using 2.9.0.1 beta ...

I probably should have updated this years ago, but I never did. But it has been fine, and I have had no reason to change it.

But should I now update to some official version?

i have the paid "Lite" version by the way.

thanks!

copper pour and ratline buggy behaviour

a few odd behaviours I am seeing (using 2.9.0.1) 1. I have pads of through hole components which are clearly connected to a net. But when I generate a pour connected to that net, DT does not connect them. I have to manually add traces to a nearby component and then regenerate. 2. My layout is done, ...

Re: DipTrace 3.0 beta

nice to see that 3.0 is out. I did buy last version after May 1 so I could get the free upgrade. But I am not involved with high speed design, and diff pairs really don't matter to me. Did you maybe implement some other requested features and omissions, like being able to draw a circle by centre and...

highlight net

When routing a board - via a right click, just make the whole net flash in some bright colour. I have seen this in other programs. Makes it a lot easier to figure out what you are doing. Maybe it exists already, but I don't know? thanks Alex!

Re: weird PDF export problem

Hi Alex - I use PDFCreator to make a pdf, or print directly to an HP6800 series printer - same deal either way. Files on their way to your inbox.

Re: How best to do solder jumpers?

just define it as a pattern and associated component. You could start with something like an 0805 resistor (that's what I use for these, and fit a 0 ohm when I want to bridge it - or a solder blob if lazy/in a hurry)

Re: weird PDF export problem

same whether I print to real printer or PDF. Therefore not the printer.

Anyway how could a printer shrink the size of the border in a document while leaving all other elements unchanged?

weird PDF export problem

I have a 3 sheet schematic. All 3 sheets have the same setup, A4 landscape. All 3 display the same in DT.

But when I print, sheet 1 - only sheet 1 - decides to have a smaller border, screwing up the print. This happens if I print to paper or PDF, the same.

weirdness.

(This is 2.9.0.1 BTW)
