All files are not present in this release, I've tested to extract the files "over" my present installation and it seems to work.

Jacks looks nice, now we want open style too :)

I fixed the problem with not exporting fonts to PDF. However I don't have a way to test under linux and mac. Can anyone try?

I also added few more components, guitar pickups being one of them. I plan to make it possible to draw guitar wiring diagrams, there's no software that covers it. The next will probably be strat and LP switches and few schematic/layout symbols. Stay tuned

Cheers,
Bane

nice one bane!!!!!....i use this software all the time, it caters for my needs, cheers man, appreciate all your hard work!!!...

very cool.  nice to see board co-ordinates too.....

a couple of things i thought would/might be handy, a mm measurement setting
this would be handy for using the blank board as the enclosure size too.....for real space available

a voltage symbol...

open jacks/nuetrik style..

ldr's (i know, use an led  ;)

schematic switch symbols

schematic led symbol

ground plane?...hmmm...

and a cup of tea symbol ;D...

or just tell me to sod off... ;D ;)

Though not a deal breaker, I'd like to be able to import a jpg of my photoshopped boards I designed so I can recreate them in your program.

Misc > Image should be sufficient :)
However it would be nice if we could keep this image as background, below other layers.

Apologies if this has been covered - (92 pages are too many for my tiny brain) - can anyone advise how to have a Vero layout show the component tags ? I've edited each component and given them unique names and proper values - just can't figure out how to make that visible in the exported image.

deadastronaut

^component tags?....do you mean the BOM list?...

or have you got upright resistors etc...

i tend to do layouts in 'real world' size with components laying flat (4 holes for resistors) (3 holes for caps) just to be neat, and you can see all the 'tags'/names/values..

I do have upright resistors - I'm laying out a tiny vero. My transistor, for example has Q1 overlaid - which is fine. My resistors, on the other hand, are across two holes and not showing anything. If I expand them to 4 or 5 holes, they show the R value, rather than the tag.

I can get the BOM ok.

deadastronaut

if i have uprights i write (use the text ) the value/tag next to it....no other way i'm afraid. :)

I'm quite sure labels for uprights are on the todo list. Til then, use labels.
