Tutorial - DSPCB Pro



  • Ralph Carlsson

    The Pro could be excellent - how knows? Can't start a new schematic. The help buttons are not working and I can't put a frame to start with. The libraries, where are they?

    The one thing that is working is the library loader in Designspark FREE (after some try outs, you have to guess all the way though)

    Did a Designspark job 4 years ago with success at the end but, Lord, how 'mecchy' it was and it took a very very long time trying out how you made it work. I thought then of buying a professional suite the next time. Never mind the cost. It would have been cheaper than spending hours and hours of trying to make Designspark pcb work, at the end.

    You can forget the 'easy to do' badge. The real badge 'It might work but you have work real hard. Designspark pcb is not doing the job easyer but it's free!

    But after more than 3 years I thought I should try it again. Hooping that all the bugs had been fixed.

    Started the other day but got stuck immediately. The help function is not working. I cannot use the template 'frame'.

    I'm sorry RS (my key supplier ) but this is not good! The 'Pro' denomination is not worth it's name to Designspark! Better is 'hope you make it work' Designspark pcb elr (exhausting labor required)

    Spend several hours trying to find out how I could do to get started but no, I'm stuck!
