Version 2021.04 was just released!!

Updates & Bugs Fixed:
  • Tools > Options:
    • Terminals > Rectangular End Cap > Courtyard Excess for Pad was not applying the excess to the sides.
    • Console > Mil Units – major upgrade to everything relating to building footprints in Mil Units.
    • De-selecting “Add origin crosshair to footprint” removes the courtyard instead of the crosshair.
    • De-selecting “Add origin target to footprint” removes the crosshair instead of the target.
    • Pad Stack Rules Options – The SMD Corner Rounding Radius Size % was not translating over to the calculator.
  • FP Designer:
    • Fixed an issue for creating Slotted Holes. The pad size did not reflect the Options.
    • Fixed an issue for Drafting Line lengths. The length value was not reflective in the drawn line.
    • Fixed an issue when selecting Corner Radius in the pad stack Manager, the default location was blank.
    • After selecting Designer and then selecting any other icon button threw an unhandled exception error.
    • When creating a new pad stack in the Pad Stack Designer, the Pad Stack Manager had value fields that were not supposed to be there.
    • Legend issue fixed – when the footprint is too small for an accurate Legend Outline, FP Designer auto-generates a fake legend outline around the pads.
  • Calculators:
    • Tabbing through the dimension cells was not working properly.
    • Naming Convention used the Nominal Package Height rather than the maximum height.
    • PSON component family was completely disabled.
  • Library Editor:
    • Rename a footprint in the library editor Footprint Name cell, the CAD tool output inserted the original name in the CAD tool translator.
    • Batch Build does not produce the Density Level Suffix in the Footprint Name L, N or M.
