Re: How do I add a non signal layer to a footprint pattern?

This would however be a great feature! For example, I currently design boards with PCI like connectors. To identify the gold-fingers (hardened) the manufacturer request to have the pads duplicated in a non signal 'gold-finger' layer... Each time I design a new board, I need to draw hundreds of recta...

Re: Buses and hierarchical sheets

Any update on this...
I'm currently designing a new project with a bus holding more than hundred nets from an FPGA: No way to place all components on the same sheet, not really in a mood to place hundreds of hierarchical connectors on each sheet...
Thanks

Re: Relative library/related file paths

+1!!! Having sometimes to change computer, directory structure or whatever, it is absolutely necessary that we can update from library even if the root disk is no more what it was when the project was created. Relative paths would be great for that! But at least a way to automatically change root fo...

Re: Additional info on Pick and Place export?

Extra fields, such as Pattern, or also mounting option, would be great in Pick and Place files.
So far, only possibility: make a script merging info from BOM (where extra fields are possible, although not always obvious to handle)n and Pick'n'Place file...
Quite painful.

Re: Multiple vias in GND pad needed

Hi,
Is there any progress on the ability to insert vias in patterns?
I'm currently facing the same problem, and since the component is duplicated several times, I would appreciate if the bias were embedded in the pattern...
Thanks
