I had a Gerber file return to me recently from my PCB manufacturer saying that my tracks were too thin, somehow I had managed to set them to 5 microns. I went to inspect my track styles in the design technology only to be met with very unhelpful user-interface formatting.
The two track styles that I use are below 1mm in width. When I enter this value DS stores it correctly but because of the formatting of the text box it then displays this value to the nearest lowest hole number, which is always 0.
As a result I come back to the design technology to make tweaks every so often only to remember that I can't remember what I initially set the track widths to!
Is it possible to reformat the design technology interface to show all the decimal points that I specify for my designs please. Otherwise I need to manually take note of what I set each track-width style to if I am to change it at a later date.
