Hi John,

Our CNC programmers prefer it this way. Draw the exact slot on the
mechanical layer 1 and then place text inside the slot on the same layer -
something like "rout and remove".

Subject: [PEDA] SLOTS?

how does protel 99SE handle drilled slots?

im placing a slot that is 12.5mm x 17.5mm on a PCB.... do i just draw this
in as a track on a mechanical layer as the size required and specify this to
be cut out on the gerber file?... it does not show up on the drill drawing
to be drilled, and 99SE hasnt got scope to add slots (holes have one
dimension only), so there does not seem to be an alternate way..

any ideas?
