Circuit Designer

  • Added the ability to import/export CSV format files in the Assign Footprint dialog. This allows you to add footprints to multiple components at once.
  • Added the ability to filter components in the Assign Footprint dialog.
  • Enhanced each function of Select Same Nets, Select Same Attribute, Select Same Pins and Select Same Components to select the same objects across all the schematic sheets in a project.

PCB Designer

  • Added a direct interface to DEMITASNX®, an EMI suppression design support tool.
  • Added the ability to flip the entire board. This allows you to design your board from the bottom-side view.
  • Added the ability to specify how routing objects are selected while in Move / Copy Continuously mode.
  • Added the ability to perform spread selection when deleting routing objects using the Delete Route command.
  • Added filled objects(planes, keep out areas, etc.) and square routes as targets for Trimming.
  • Added the option to suppress trailing zeros in the dimension value when placing dimensions.
  • Added the ability to export component coordinates files in CSV format.
  • Added the option to output texts as lines when exporting a DXF file.
  • Added the option to import footprints as components when converting CR5000 board files.
  • Added a new vector font for text objects.

Fixed Issues

Common

  • Fixed an issue where the Favorite settings would be initialized by performing certain steps.
  • Fixed an issue where each link such as a link to a datasheet could not be opened in the Ultra Librarian window.
  • Adjusted the size of each message dialog.

Circuit Designer

  • Fixed an issue where references would not be updated correctly when running the Update Reference command after copying a schematic sheet.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause an error when changing a reference through certain steps.
  • Fixed an issue where a net would not be connected between multiple sheets in some cases.
  • Fixed an issue where the Fit to Drawing Frame Size option would be displayed in some irrelevant dialogs
  • Fixed an issue where symbols would not be converted correctly when converting CR5000 schematic files containing certain data.

PCB Designer

  • Improved the interface and usability of the dialogs that contain collapsible settings.
  • Improved the usability of the Subtract function.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause an error when rotating a cutout while in copy mode.
  • Fixed an issue where the clearance between a dynamic plane and custom pad would be less than the specified value in some cases.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause an error when switching the corner angle during differential pair routing.
  • Fixed some minor issues that occurred during differential pair routing.
  • Fixed an issue where corner dimensions would be displayed at an inappropriate position in some cases.
  • Fixed an issue where hidden attribute texts would be checked by a batch DRC.
  • Fixed an issue where texts placed on a Bottom layer would not be output when exporting a DXF file.
  • Fixed some minor issues that occurred in ODB++ file exports.
  • Improved the CR5000-BD converter to import the board outline as line objects.
  • Improved the CR5000-BD converter to import via names.
  • Fixed an issue where the inner layer of the PCB converted from CR5000-BD could not be deleted.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause an error when converting the CR5000 board files with certain data.
  • Fixed an issue where pads would not be imported properly when converting the CR5000 board files with certain data.
