Hi,

In CAM Outputs go to 'Tools....Preferences'

The directory at the bottom which you point the CAM files to  is in fact
where protel will create an extra copy of the gerber files.

If you set the Path to the design directory every time, Protel creates the
Gerber files, then tries to overwrite these gerber files with a copy, hence
the dialog. In JaMi's case, with the path set to x, the first time gerber
zzz is created, there is probably no 'Overwrite?' Dialog, but subsequent F9
presses will produce one.

Simply uncheck the 'Export copy to' box and you will find you only get one
copy of the gerber files, in the correct design directory. Well, I do anyway
;-)

Best Regards

Paul

Brad,

I am not sure what I am overwriting, and I am just using X and ZZZ to
signify I have overwriten "something" a whole bunch of times.

Next time I go thru the F9 process I will pay more attention.  :-)
