Tony, can't understand your logic. This probelm still manifests itself in the DXP, after all the versions that have been released from DOS onwards. Apparently, nothing has been done to deal with it and it is still evident, as just reported by Brian. If the old file formats were flawed they could have certainly done something to overcome that when importing into a new version of Protel.

Maybe it's still with the older versions. It seems like it would be pretty easy to find, once someone notices it. > -----Original Message----- > From: Igor Gmitrovic [mailto:igmitrovic@;hpm.com.au] > Sent: Thursday, October 17, 2002 5:44 PM > To: Protel EDA Forum > Subject: Re: [PEDA] Pads disappearing - DXP -> Earlier Version -> DXP > > > Brian, > > so it is still there.
