Bob,

I have been forwarding all these translation related issues to
[EMAIL PROTECTED] . Phillip has just reported to me that changing the
Silkscreen Line Width in PADS first and then translating them to Protel and
then globally editing the file by moving line widths of a certain type will
work. 

We're trying this approach right now.

Any other suggestions on this matter of translating CAD libraries should be
Bcc: to Phillip Restall in England. Phillip is the mastermind translation
programming guru of PCB Libraries. Phillip also creates the Wizard (direct
CAD import) features for the IPC-7351 Navigator.

Thanks,
Tom H

The abilities of the DelpiScript engine exposed in 2004 is very powerful
indeed, in fact pretty much
overkill, but probably not that well documented. 

John,

Can you point me to where it is documented at *ALL* ?
I keep seeing people here and elsewhere referring to its capabilities and
flexibility, but I've never seen it mentioned - except obliquely - anywhere
in the documentation. In fact I'll go one better. One of my main complaints
about Protel in general is the difficulty of getting "at" the voluminous
documentation. I find the whole process extremely counter - intuitive.

Bob
