Lloyd,

I had the same problem yesterday and found that the reson for the bug ZA was
that I had created a new footprint and forgotton to place the edge
of the component or pin1 to the origin in the PCB library. The component
ended up being about 40mm bigger than what you see as Protel makes a
perimeter rectangle around the component starting from the origin, ie the
further from the origin you are the bigger your "component gets" but you
don't see this when you place it.

Regards,

Chris Rhomberg,
