The question was – How to do this? Wednesday, 10 November Who said what?

Just a note to say – I noticed that in the blog setup there was an option for a mobile theme, so I have enabled it to allow the blog to be read better via a mobile. Library creation is a skill that all PCB CAD engineers should learn, either by studying the help-documentation and having a go it won’t bite or by going on a caddtar creation training course.

Many designers still produce drill drawings along with their Gerber files as Manufacturing Notes for various reasons and this is a how to for multi layer boards.

Sunday, 8 May Preparing a schematic template with zone link support. Saves a lot of hassle, confusion and head scratching. Turn on power triac – proposed circuit analysis 0. A message from support teams all over the world.

The dangler is that little blob that gets left dangling when cadsstar a schematic connection and you double click in free space. Part items in the Parts library are referenced by symbol definitions in a separate Symbol library file, which is the second file required by the importer when creating an Altium Designer schematic library.

Hey folks – if your going to post comments could you please leave a name? Possibly because not every method of doing something is documented – besides, who reads the documentation?
