I'm using 4.1.2.0 (OS X) and it doesn't work :(
Also exporting the BOM which worked fine in previous versions doen't work well anymore. Only 1 value is exported. Means you have 100 x same value instead of all different values. Not usable.
I have a lot of difficulties with every new software update. Not sure they are really meant to work on OS X systems. I will try on a different computer using Catalina and see.

Hi Freddy63 - update to the latest version (4.1.2.0), the option is now in place, and works great.
I tried with different MAC OS, up to Catalina, no success.
I have to turn the components like resistors, caps etc, to optimize the routing. Turning a resistor also turns the marking. It was not like this in the previous versions.

Okay. I found out how to make it work again by changing the setting in "Group Rows by:" pulldown menu. It is set as standard to "Components", it should not.

Hi Freddy - I'm not certain about the Mac version. I run Diptrace on a Mac Pro, but I run it in a virtual Windows machine (VMWare Fusion) - I do not like Wine (the 3rd Party framework that runs the Mac version), it does not work well.

I don't like Wine either. I agree.
Working in a virtual machine is a good idea. I'll see if I can use my licence with Windows in my VirtualBox.

DipTrace works fantastically well in Fusion, so I imagine it would also in VirtualBox. I wonder how this will play out when the new Apple processors replace the Intel ones that allowed this to work so well?!
