  • Bryan Nevins commented,

    In my library it is SO16NB   I think it is a problem with the layer types.  "place bound" should  be "placement = Y" and it is set to placement = N

    layer "Top Place Bound"

    Some of the DS pcb library footprints have a layer "top place bound" which goes around the perimeter of the part.  What is it's role? I typically see it when the silkscreen is drawn inside the pads...

    what OS are you using?

    I am unable to get the activation code. I already have an account. It is a windows 7 dual boot computer.  DS pcb is working properly on the 32 bit OS, but I cannot get it to activate on the 64 bit ...

    Version 8 DRC much improved !

    I just compared DRC results for DS pcb v8.0 with V7.2 on the same file. Version 7.2 gave me 15 component to component errors, 8 of them bogus, and many of the gap measurements were wrong.   Version...

    It is an 0805 cap and a TH capacitor.  I have defined bounding circles on top and bottom for the TH capacitor.   The little line drawn by the DRC does not go anywhere near the 0805 capacitor--if it...

    I am getting component to component errors on parts that are 4mm apart ! can you PM me with an email or link so I can upload the file, you can run the check yourself and see the errors---it is a re...

    DRC bug--reported gap too small

    I find that the DRC check frequently reports "gap" smaller than the correct value leading to false errors in the drc Check.  I have emailed an example  *.pcb file.

    LTspice compatibility

    Can I paste a DS pcb schematic into Ltspice?  If I make a change in LTspice, can I paste it back into Design spark?  Will the transfer work if the circuits are hierarchical?

    control center for circle objects

    When I draw a circle, I want to the able to control the center position.  That makes it much easier to align the circle with other objects.
