Version 2014.09 was just released!!


FIXED / ENHANCED:

  • Allegro/OrCAD PCB:
    • The all color UI visibility settings in the script have been disabled per feedback. Newer versions of Allegro/OrCAD PCB had issues, older ones didn’t care if it wasn’t there, so it’s been disabled.
  • PADS Layout:
    • Removed Family Name from the Part Type in the .ASC output for V9.x
    • Removed Alphanumeric Names from the Decal in the .ASC output. They’re in the Part Type and PADS gets confused if they’re in both sections.
    • In the Attributes section of the .ASC file, it now properly calls out the Part Type Name, rather than the Decal Name
  • OrCAD Layout & SoloPCB:
    • .MIN format – Pad Stacks now properly display their Non-Plated value
  • Eagle:
    • All Paste Mask and Solder Mask is now generated to and matches the exact values specified in FPX. If you want the Solder Mask to expand, you’ll need to specify it.
  • Calculator:
    • LGA & CGA were not displaying the Environment
    • Display Grid was updated so that whatever the last grid setting used would be kept upon save
    • The graphic image for all pull-back lead component families was updated
  • Library Editor:
    • Removed the Description auto-complete function
    • Enhanced the Manufacturer Name auto-complete function. Right Mouse Click on the Manufacturer cell and a mfr. list will appear. Type some characters.
    • When a footprint name was missing on a “Save FPX” the FPX format changed to V2015. To convert back to the 2012 format use File > Save As.
  • General:
    • Issue that was causing the program to save in 2015 format even though there was no custom data
    • Issue that was causing duplication errors when dealing with a Footprint Name that started with the same string as another Footprint Name

Another build has just been posted. Thanks for your patience as there have been some major updates to the code, especially during the last month.
