Here is how. Step #1, copy / import the ***.bas file into your project, in the Documents folder.
To do this, you can just drag the ***.bas file from windows & drop the file right into the Documents window of Protel 99SE. Now, to use these basic scripts, open a PCB in your design. To test, I recommend making a new blank PCB. Click on the fat down arrow at the top left of the Protel window & select "Run Script." Click the + for documents & select the ***.bas you wish to run. Enter in the #s. For the first time, I recommend the defaults. Zoom in to the generated pattern. You may delete & regenerate the pattern as many time as you wish. I recommend once settling on a design, copy & paste it into a library pattern for use. Only the Footprint generator was designed to be used directly in the PCB Lib editor instead of the regular PCB editor. Good luck. ____________ Brian Guralnick ----- Original Message ----- From: "Peder K.
