Re: Where are title blocks stored?

Thanks, dtu2, I found them and copied them, and my title blocks are back.

I confess I didn't search the forum for this; it was late and I wanted to dash off the question so the DipTrace support time zone could see it before my morning. I'm usually more diligent.

Where are title blocks stored?

On my old computer I created some custom title blocks (Files / Titles and Sheet Setup / Title Blocks). I want to port them to my new computer, but I can't find where DipTrace has stored them. Can anyone help?

Re: Changed disk drive letter breaks library references

I think I just found it: export and import to DipTrace ASCII. I can do a text search and replace that way and safely change my drive letter.

Whew...

Changed disk drive letter breaks library references

In my new computer my disk drives are mapped to different drive letters than before, so all my DipTrace schematic symbols now point to non-existent libraries. I can't update components from libraries. Is there some way to do a global search/replace on all the library references in my schematic, to c...

Re: Pattern Editor color theme

Thanks, Tom, that did it. I had to start PCB Editor, specify the dark theme, and then close it before Pattern Editor picked it up.

Pattern Editor color theme

OK, now I'm trying to set up Pattern Editor on the new computer. When installing DipTrace I selected the "dark" theme, for a black background. That worked for Schematic and Component editors, but not Pattern. How do I set the color theme for the Pattern Editor?

Re: Migrating library groups to new computer

OK, just figured it out. You need to "Add Group" in Library Setup, change it to the group name you used on the old computer, then Add Folder and add the folder of libraries from the old computer. This seems to result in the same configuration as before.

Migrating library groups to new computer

How do I migrate existing .lib and .eli library groups to a new computer? I don't see how to in Library Setup.

Moving to new computer

I have installed DipTrace on my new computer, but now I need to duplicate the old environment. I had 3D models, custom models, and several libraries.

Is there a good way to port all this, or do I need to reinstall everything from scratch?

Re: Holes in thermal SMT pads in Pattern Editor?

Here is another workaround which avoids DRC errors and pattern warnings, persists across Renew Layout From Schematic, and provides correct netlist connectivity: In the pattern, do not place the through-holes. Instead, place .01 mm line width crosshairs on the Bottom Assy (or other unused) layer wher...
