Re: Un-merge ...

Thanks for the suggestion! I have a schematic, but at this point the net names on it are randomly assigned and the connector (15 of them) pin numbers are not drawn. All the reference designators match schematic to layout, but the net names do not. I prefer to first do the layout and then assign the ...

Un-merge ...

I am manually doing a layout that has around 300 nets. Two have been accidentally merged at some point. When I select one both are selected. Is there any way ... short of deleting one net and redoing it with the correct net name ... of "un-merging" the two nets? Each of the two has about 30 pads and...

Re: Crash error in Schematics ..

Fixed the problem! Uninstalled the 64 bit version of Diptrace and installed the 32 bit version on the desktop computer. No crashes in about 8 hours of usage. Something must be wrong with the 64 bit version .. at least for me.

Re: Crash error in Schematics ..

The known issue can be related to memory management in Win 9x/ME (in this case you should run programs separately and close Schematic when you open PCB). However if you have Win 2000/XP/7/8 or 10, the reason is different: Could you please send the file to our support ticket system for verification....

Compare to schematic question and...

I have completed a design using the schematic and layout programs. "Electrical rule check" and "Check design rules" no errors. "Compare to schematic" and "check net connectivity" show no errors, but I know that the net names connecting the same parts are different. So the question is ... does the so...

Reference number .. renumbering

I have an older PC board that I am trying to reproduce in Diptrace. I have no idea what software was used to do the original design, but I do have a copy of the schematic. So, I duplicated the original schematic in Diptrace schematic. For many reasons, I wanted to keep the original ref. designators ...

The computer is running Windows 7 - 64 bit. I will send the schematic file to your support e-mail address.

Crash error in Schematics ..

I am getting a consistent 00..0410E17 crash error in Schematics. I can bring up a schematic file and do nothing but wait and within a min or so the program will crash with this error. It seems to be related to using the "compare to Schematic" operation in the Layout program. I have both programs run...
