This looks a long way ahead of the original DOS Autotrax software.
I expect that it's only a name similarity.
Can't remember if it was 'Protel PCB' or 'AutoTrax' first (around 1986/87).
Ran it on an XT. Only top, bottom and 2 planes, handful of track and pad sizes, no 
schematic editor and no netlist.
It was far better and cheaper than just about anything else around at the time though. 
I think that it was marketed as Tango in the US back then.
The place that I worked for then had a mainframe based system that we could view one 
layer at a time and a screen refresh could take 20 minutes. Other than that, it was 
hand taped.

regards,

Phil.

Wasn't AutoTrax the predecessor to Protel?

I wonder if the original DOS code has been recycled into a Windows app?  Did
anyone on this list use the original DOS AutoTrax software?  How does this
compare?
