Re: DipTrace 4.2.0.1 - cursor disappears

The only application I've found that doesn't hide the cursor has been GIMP, regardless of the mouse settings it always displays the cursor. TurboCad, Paint and other drawing applications hide the cursor with the setting unchecked.

Re: Pin file, Csc,TXT import

The problem with just a BSDL import is the tools like STM32CubeIDE; I can create a part that has the pins defined with my labels then export that definition to CSV but that leaves me tracking down a CSV to BSDL converter (yes @nerdx86, please do post your converter) or writing an Excel formula to do...

Here's the related discussion - https://diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=11998&p=23803 ...I don't know/care why it got pulled, or the reasoning behind it, but it needs to be back in the product... I disagree, but that's just me. Not just you, anyone that uses this product should disagree

Re: Any idea where to find component and pattern for 7-pin tube

I can use TurboCAD to draw the socket with OBround pins that have the correct angle but I haven't figured out DT: On pins 2 and 6 it is(?) 136 degrees and pins 7 and 3 it is 90 degrees but what is pin 4? socket.jpg The 18mm is a guess, I learned to NEVER use drawings from China, always measure the p...

Re: Any idea where to find component and pattern for 7-pin tube

If you buy the socket you can measure two pins across from each other, that is the diameter, measure a pin width and thickness where it will rest on the PCB, with those three measurements the pattern and component can be built.You could just use a round pad with a hole the width of a pin but I'd use...
