Re: Why are there holes in pads in 3D view?

It's strange if the holes are in 3D preview but are not in drill files. Could you please send the board file to DipTrace support or upload on the forum.

Re: Add support to create schematics out of netlists/PCBs

Thank you for the request. It's not as easy to create a schematic from PCB as it seems. Imagine a board with thousand of components. Auto-restored schematic won't be human readable. It will be a heap of the thousand of generic components (rectangle boxes instead symbols of transistors, diodes, capac...

Re: Editing Shapes 240221

Different shapes can be edited in different ways. The rectangle can be made bigger or smaller but can't be converted to other kind of shape. You can delete the rectangle and draw a polyline or place few lines instead.

Re: SMD pads 240220

If you change pad type from through-hole to surface then hole shape and diameter are ignored. The pad properties window should get reduced automatically to hide unused hole properties on the right side.

Re: PCB Layout frequently freezes

If PCB Layout freezes in other than autorouter mode you can try the following: 1. Restart program or reboot machine. 2. Change graphics mode ( View -> Graphics Mode). 3. For complex board, disable real time DRC if enabled ( Verification -> Design Rules). 4. If the freezes happen with specific PCB fi...

Re: Export/Import Library and Excel

I work in DipTrace many years but still don't know how to export DipTrace library to Excel. But users can do it. Just curious, what did you do and how? And what do you need? Maybe there is other way to solve the task without using Excel.

Re: PCB Layout frequently freezes

Please clarify, does PCB Layout freeze during or after autorouting? During autorouting, CPU has high load and the program lags some. It's normal behavior until autorouter completes its work.

Re: imported ASC file.... where are the footprints?

Flux wrote: 07 Feb 2024, 05:30 I have the same question with the 4.3.0.5 version. In pattern editor there is not an "Insert from Component" option.
Use "Pattern -> Insert from Another Library" in version 4.3.0.5.
