Hi,

I would like to know of configure the orientation of the polarity mark for different packages.

I am using version 2022.02 and for example, a SODFL the mark is in the middle and I would like to know of to change it to one side (chamfer) top or bot.

Thanks for your time and help. :)

V2022.03 is released and it fixes 15 bugs and adds 2 new features. 

The automatic Assembly Polarity marker for SOD and SODFL is in the middle. 

You want the Assembly Polarity to be a Chamfered corner. 

I will discuss this with the programmer to see if we can change the default location.

The SOD, SODFL and 2-pin Side Concave Package will have a Chamfer Assembly Polarity Marker in V2022.04 pre-release coming later this week. 

Thank you for reporting this inconsistency in the assembly outline polarity marking.
