    • Fixed an issue with TO (DPAK) when the thermal tab is recessed under the body
    • Component families with Thermal Tabs – The D2 and E2 dimensions were relocated from the Max to the Nom cell
    • Mounting Hole component family – fixed an error message that was thrown when creating satellite vias
  • Preferences:
    • Added: Drafting > Silkscreen > Auto-generate Pin 1 Indicator Line
      (this new feature allows the user to turn on/off the Pin 1 Line)
  • Allegro / OrCAD PCB:
    • Fixed an issue in FP Designer that was causing Solder Mask off-setting to fail
    • All parts and complex pad stacks now have a ‘zoom fit’ at the end of their script so they can be easily seen upon reopening,  if built on a large Allegro workspace

    • Fixed bugs that were causing slotted holes to import improperly as rectangles and have an improper rotation
  • 3D STEP:

    • Shrouded and Receptacle Vertical Headers now output proper 3D Models
  • General:
    • Lengthened the 3D UI box so it fully displays under Medium Fonts
