Re: Pour Clearance, Netclass Clearance in DRC

Fixed Typo at i.e. 0.4mm Bug or Feature Request - Given how it has bitten us a few times I'm feeling bug. The Checkbox "Use Net Clearance" in "Copper pour Properties" causes the specified clearance to be ignored, and instead use each net's clearance (but it doesn't gray out Clearance when ignoring i...

Component Editor - Fill Colour

Nice if could change fill colour of Rectangle/Oval/Polygon.
(For Multipart components a light background colour/shading could help associate the parts and improve schematic understanding)

Re: Hierarchy block save to library for use in other schematics

Maybe a different library just for such blocks, then won't interfere with existing libs. Or even just one block per file, then could be in Schematic or PCB format.

Hierarchy block save to library for use in other schematics

Is there a way to save a Hierarchy block as a file or hierarchy library so it can be included in different schematics (and changes to it migrate to all schematics its used in, when schematic is opened/updated). Bonus if layout of the block on a pcb can also be preserved. We have many reused circuits...

Re: Trace Arc

Thank you Tom. Update#2 works for me (Click "Free Edit", Add Node in centre of segment, Right-Click "Arc" on that new node, drag new node).

Trace Arc

How do I use the Trace Arc feature?
I can turn a segment to an arc by right clicking and selecting arc,
but I don't know how to adjust the radius or endpoints to what I need.
Right now I'm trying to get a trace to follow the edge of a large hole in the PCB.

Re: bug - Paste&Mask incorrect after update pattern

FYI: If you do have to delete patterns and import from schematic to get proper update,
ensure you "Disconnect traces" before deleting, then all the copper stays in place, and use connect traces when have part in correct location (Keeping Parts on grid helps).

Re: Drill to PAD Clearance

Tom,
Both of those look good, I have to ponder the differences.
I will try on my next board order, which is hopefully this month.
Thank you for the detailed drawings, they really clarify the ideas.
Paul
