Re: DipTrace Team has the question to our users

The last three requests here are related to adding components to DipTrace instead of adding features and usability improvements to the program itself?

3) File > Preview > Objects > Unselect everything except Assy

Re: Saving or transferring a "Library" to an external medium

1) Is there someway to turn off (actually "Toggle") the snap-to function for the cursor ? What I have done is to reduce the Grid size, which makes for easier use. To disable snap, press F11 to disable the grid. You can't have the grid on without having snap enabled. 2) Again, I have searched the "I...

I turn the 'Snap to Grid' off by turning the grid off, F11.
The point the OP is trying to make is that he wants to turn off snap to grid but still show the grid (as a reference).

+1 for relative library paths... this is one thing that is keeping me from upgrading to a higher edition for now (and considering other PCB packages.)
