Dimension Units default?

I just imported a PADS PCB project (Imported without issues!) and was trying to figure out what units they used to layout the PCB but as I place a dimension I have to change each one to Common from mm in order to use the View/Units to change all dimensions otherwise the dimension is stuck in mm. Is ...

Re: 1 minute periodic FREEZE -- provide options PLEASE!

Make sure your not dealing with a disk wake-up issue, my USB 12TB sled drive goes to sleep to save power, takes a few seconds to wake-up, if your on a portable with a HD not SSD check you power setting.

Re: Need help identifying resistor values!

If a resistor burned up there was a reason, replacing the resistor won't fix that. To repair the monitor you need the schematic to start with, if you can't get it save yourself hours of wasted time, throw the monitor away.

Re: Place new Dimension: units always inches

DipTrace allows you to set the default dimension units to be different from the " Common " setting if needed. After enabling the Dimension tool use the Properties panel on the right side of the screen to make your selection and DipTrace will remember it... d1.png Another Tomg gold, didn't know you ...

Re: Is it just me?

I tried to use the vendors 3D image on the 'centered' pattern, the connector is offset. I disassembled a MonarchGO, the case is/was glued shut and using a PCB inspection microscope I captured some images, imported an image into my CAD software and placed dimensions from center line of each mounting ...

Is it just me?

While working on an IOT project I've come across a device called MonarchGO, this device is one of many that uses the cellular CAT M1 technology to communicate via IP. While laying out a shield I ran into some weird issues with the vendor: 1. The device has a 20 pin Molex connector with two mounting ...

Re: Current Variant Support Implementation Too Basic

Please stop this. You know this is a waste of time without some form of project management and have said so. Things that need to be done are not, push and shove, pad stacks, flex PCB, and many others. A simple fix would be enabling git, add a revision control system or as I do now which allows branc...
