Board Cutouts Increase PCB Dimensions?

Here's an interesting one. I've recently discovered that board cutouts, despite by definition removing material, actually count toward the board dimensions for pricing purposes for some PCB manufacturers. For example, take this oddball PCB shape I threw together- I'm using this example because It's ...

Expanded PCB Verification Checks

A few small feature request for the Verification Checks in the PCB tool: 1) It would be great if there was a one-click "Check Everything" button in the toolbar. When clicked, this would run the DRC checks, check the net connectivity, and compare the PCB to the schematic, all in one shot. 2) Sometime...

Link "Compare to Schematic" to "Related Schematic"

A feature request for "Related Schematic" handling: In the PCB editor, the Layout Information panel lets you assign a file as the Related Schematic, which is then automatically available for the "Renew Layout from Schematic" action. However, when selecting "Compare to Schematic" from the Verificatio...

A few feature suggestions related to sorting functions in DipTrace: 1) In both the Pattern Editor and Component Editor, when you select the "Sort" option from the "Library" menu, the selected pattern/component switches to the first one in the alphabetical list after the sort operation, which is prob...

Re: Allow datasheet link to be a website or local file location

Copying a local path can be problematic too. Say for example, you have your datasheets all nicely sorted on your local machine. Then you decide your datasheets would really be better on a NAS, so that you can access them from two machines. What then? You would have to go through every single compone...

Text Line Spacing of Less Than 1.0?

Would it be possible to add a few additional text line spacing options, for spacings of less than 1.0? Right now the options are 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, .... through 2.0. What would be nice are some condensed options for 0.9, 0.8, 0.7, etc. This would give a lot more flexibility for condensing text on tight ...

When I edit text, I have no idea if the window will pop up like this: DipTrace Text 1.png .. or like this: DipTrace Text 2.png ... it's always an unknown whether I will have to click again or not. And by fa...
