DS> what do you mean by 'assertion error' ?
Sorry,  I should have said "Access Violation" here.

For Example,  here is the PCB Wizard bug:
 Create a new PCB using the PCB wizard.

 Set Boundary layer,  in the first dialog box  to: None

 Pick all remaining defaults in all the remaining dialog boxes.  (just say
 next, continue, or finish till you get a PCB,  or an error...)

 I get an access violation at 004FE1C8 in CSRTL.DPL,  exception occurred in
 ClientCreateNewDocument,  when I do this.

 Yes,  doing this was probably silly.  (I was attempting to reduce the
 number of objects that might have shown up later in a DXF file,  at the
 time I discovered this.)

In my case,  it appeared to do the copy,  but it generated an Access

I was trying to copy and paste from the current PCB document,  into a
New PCB document to generate a new rev of the (same) PCB design,  at the

DS> when you say writing it out as orcad format, what exactly do you mean?

here is Orcad.  (others are EDIF,  and different versions of Protel,  and a few

DS> it won't write dsn files, do you mean SDT format ?
Not sure as I don't have or use Orcad.  I was just trying to write out
some kind of an Orcad file,  that an Orcad user could later read in.
btw: I have since discovered Cadence/Orcad has an EDIF I/O add on utility
to Orcad CIS up on their web site. I haven't tried this possible path from
Protel to Orcad yet.  It might be a way.

DS> and that save copy as of a schem then trashed the DDB ?
Yes,  it's repeatable,  I've done it at least twice now.
