Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

I really need this issue to be "fixed". I've got 15 boards I have done in another program, and redoing them in Diptrace. I've output the traces from this other program, and I used that to do toner transfer and make my own PCBs I have been using those images as a picture object in Diptrace to design...

Re: DirPrace updates or upgrades

All 4.0.0.x updates include bug-fixes for existing features and minor polishing only. If anything works incorrectly in DipTrace, you can report that here and the next 4.0.0.x build will have it fixed.
For 4.x.x.x updates we will publish list of new features on the web-site.

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

dear sir please check my design why after teardrop features use some trace are overlap in print preview.. check my attachments The solution is to convert all vias to static (right click on any via, Convert to Static > All Vias) or to use 32-bit version. The issue already has been fixed and will wor...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

... and now the same question for the 4.0.0.4 that was released a few days ago? :D edit: Also, the download for 4.0.0.4 seems markedly smaller... 732 MB, vs ~1.2GB for 4.0.0.3, 4.0.0.2, and 4.0.0.1. All 4.0.0.x are minor updates without new features: We fix all bugs and issues found by our testers,...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

Probably so, because that's a real fooler as well. I've only got stung with a board fabrication once when this happened, the route finished 100%, and the verification declared everything good. Fortunately, it was a one-off prototype, and I just added the wire to finish testing, but I was not impres...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

One more I encountered today. If you select the "Place Shape" button on the toolbar, the menu which pops out from it appears to be either drawn underneath the editing space, or is clipped by the editing space. The buttons are still there, and you can actually click on them if you move the mouse acr...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

I found a problem in the Schematic Editor when selecting to "show/hide" of the Part for the "Name". The "show/hide" Part option for the "RefDes" controls BOTH the "RefDes" and the "Name". This has been fixed already (will be correct in the next build). I'm not sure if this is a bug or a feature req...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

I have noticed that in DT4 PCB Layout picture objects are now vectorized before placing. Is it possible to add an option to place a picture without vectorizing it, like it was in DT3? Besides normal use for board design, I also use DT for hardware reverse-engineering, for which it turned out to be ...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 Release

Teardrop issue using 4.0.0.1. Scenario: a net with a thru-hole pad, a via, and an SMT pad. When right-clicking on the TH pad and adding a teardrop to the "Selected Objects", teardrops are applied to the via even though it wasn't selected. I see no way to add a teardrop to the TH pad without also ha...

Re: Feature request

I would like to hear from the developers what their opinion is on this matter. We follow this thread, but didn't reply yet. In our concept pattern/footprint is also associated with package, not only with pads and graphics, that is why 3D model is attached to pattern, not to component, and we probab...
