Re: What happened to PCB Manufacturing?

KevinA: Hmm, I did go PCB shopping, and I would love to 'buy American' if at all possible. Do you have a company name or a link to their website? In the meantime, yesterday I received the 5 boards I ordered from JLPCB, and they appear to be very well made, and VERY fast (less than 10 days, from time...

What happened to PCB Manufacturing?

Back in 2016 I designed a small amplifier board to help out a STEM project sponsored by my Alma Mater The Ohio State University. When I finished the design, I used the 'baked in' PCB manufacturing option to buy 5ea PCB's from Bay Area Circuits. I had planned to do the same thing with a new PCB desig...

Re: Print Current Sheet from Print Preview fails first time

The 'print preview' button is the icon that looks like a sheet of paper with a magnifying glass - same as 'print preview' icon in Word, etc.

The 'all', 'Pages', and 'Selection' radio buttons appear in the print dialog that shows up when you click on 'Print Current Sheet'.

Print Current Sheet from Print Preview fails first time

V4.0.0.2 Fixed the 'all black print' problem, but there is still a problem with printing from Print Preview. If I launch the schematic editor and then Print Preview, the first time I click on 'Print Current Sheet' I get a 'failed to print' notification from my Brother printer, and the filename of th...

Re: Sparkfun and Adafruit Libraries for Diptrace Link

Looks like there have been no commits to the GitHub files since the initial ones, meaning none of the recent breakout boards are included. Can anyone confirm that?

TIA,

Tom,

Thanks - that trick worked great! So, what was causing the problem, anyway?

Re: Can't delete hiercharchy block

I actually want to get rid of the 'Level Shifter' page, but when I try, I get an error saying it is referenced by 'Block2' (The IR Detector page)

TIA,

Re: Can't delete hiercharchy block

I tried saving the schematic to a different file, closing and then re-launching DipTrace, but that didn't affect the problem. Schematic file attached ;-)

Re: Can't delete hiercharchy block

Tomg Thanks for the quick response. I can find 'Block2' fine - it's just that there doesn't appear to be anything in Block2 that references the page I wish to delete, and the page I want to delete doesn't show up in the component list anywhere (not as a block or a component or anything). It's just a...
