Re: How do i measure from centre of pad to centre of pad?

It should snap to the center of any pad. If the grid is making it hard to find the center snap point, temporarily toggle the grid off by using the [F11] softkey. The grid status can be seen in the hint area at the bottom right.

Re: Size of 0603 footprint in diptrace library

You appear to be looking in the "General (non IPC)" library. Try the "Res Chip Metric" library to access the three standard sizes.

Re: Snap measurement to copper pad

It should snap to the midpoint of any pad edge. If the grid is making it hard to find the snap point, temporarily toggle the grid off by using the [F11] softkey. The grid status can be seen in the hint area at the bottom right.

Re: How to make resistor display value in schem

For all components: View > Part Markings . For an individual component double-click on it (not its pins) to bring up the " Component Properties " dialog window. In the " Component Properties " dialog window click on the [Part Markings] tab and explore the " Show " drop-list in the " Value " row.

Re: How to do the curved pin 1 marker on a SOIC silkscreen

A) DipTrace v4.1.3.1 is not capable of creating marker " A " (see below) unless you have a DXF file with the desired drawing. Such a DXF file can be imported into DipTrace to give you a "D" shaped marker. B) DipTrace v4.1.3.1 is capable of creating marker " B "; draw a Polygon on the silk layer. C)...

Re: Show pin numbers on schem symbols?

In the main menu select View > Pin Numbers > Show. If that doesn't help, right-click on the component in question (not its pins) and select Pin Numbers > Show in the context menu.

Re: Version 4.1.3.1

Temporarily change the Layer Display Mode to "Current Only", select the appropriate Current Signal/Plane Layer, turn off its copper (Top or Bottom) and make sure its Mask layer is enabled so you can see all of the Mask openings.

Keep New Path

Add a "Keep New Path" option to the "Remove Loops" feature in the Route Setup dialog window. Enabling the "Keep New Path" option would force DipTrace to remove the old path instead of removing the new path as it does now.
