Current Variant Support Implementation Too Basic

Ok, I was really happy when I saw that Diptrace 4 will get variant support. But, I must admit, I'm really disappointed by how it was done. Here is why: Because it is only supported in PCB Editor and not in SCH Editor; I'm asking what's the point of having a schematic which doesn't reflect your assem...

Re: Currency Not Working

1. In Altium Manufactuer Part Search, which is binded to Octopart, I can set CAD$. 2. In Octopart website I can also set CAD$ for any manufacturer. 3. Both Digikey and Mouser website supports CAD$, they also have canadian website extension which en defaulted to CAD$. So I don't think your explanatio...

Currency Not Working

When checking price and availability, even if the setting "Featured Supplier And Currency" is set to CAD, it only show USD.
I have try with other manufactuer and restart Diptrace to see if it will take effect but nothing, still stock on USD.

Re: "group to layout"

Thank you for explaining how the feature works in Altium. We will consider implementing it and rooms in DipTrace. Actually, the "Place parts inside rectangle" feature speed up placement a lot but it is only limited to placement. Rooms has several extra advantages not only related to placement but a...

Re: Component Editor - Fill Colour

Fill Color With Opacity (+1).
Then in that case, object display order (like layer order in the component editor of 2.4) must be back.

Re: "group to layout"

That is an even better solution, great! can there be an option to have the parts selected in the schematic stay marked even if not selected in PCB? Altium does this with a tool called something like "Place parts inside rectangle"... basically it works like that: 1. Select the parts in the schematic...

Re: PCB Editor - Editing Component Silk without having to "Ungroup Component"

Thank you for the request. We will consider editing component silkscreen without having to ungroup component in PCB Layout. The only concern is what to do during renewing board from schematic. Oh that's right I did not think to that detail. When renewing schematic, if there is discrepancies between...

Re: DipTrace 4.1 beta

Found a bug with HTML Interactive BOM. 1) Net highlight on bottom layer does not works, I did try for two different design and it does the same on both. Net highlight seems to work only on top layer. 2) When in LR view mode, handle get stuck on resizing function. The only way to get out of window re...

Re: Can I denote a track as 'sacrificial' on the circuit?

Here is the workaround; 1. In component editor, Create a custom 2 pin symbol (in your case something like -----X------ ) in the component editor 2. Name that symbol whatever you want but also think to append something to denote the width of the trace. For example, "SACRIFICIAL_W12" for a trace of 12...

PCB Editor - Editing Component Silk without having to "Ungroup Component"

IMHO the following should be reworked or at least fixed in some way. Sometime in a design you want to fix issue with the silk layer, example you want to make a silk line shorter because a via is in or move the pin 1 (dot) because its fall in a via space. Unfortunately, the only way we can do that is...
