Hmmm... I'm not sure what it could be. My computer clock and date are
reading correctly. I use Atomic Clock Sync v2.2. Perhaps my mail server or
something else is screwed up. I'm no computer wiz and don't have control
over any other computers other than mine. Sorry...

Tim,

You might try double clicking on the lower RH clock in Windows, and check 
the settings on the Time Zone tab.
I have seen some gremlin programs change this for some unknown reason.

Re: [PEDA] Sch part of Connector (WAS: rectangle hole?)

2002-08-01 Thread rlamoreaux



 Why is this info being stored and how do I stop it from doing so?
 Especially the pin number starting 8.

Go to Preferences and change the default primitives to what you want them
to default to and you should be happier. My default pin is set to 0 and 0.

Re: [PEDA] Sch part of Connector (WAS: rectangle hole?)

2002-08-01 Thread Rene Tschaggelar

AFAIK, the strings are the last ones or derived from the last ones.
Also the pin 8. 
Sometimes I have pin 17 or pin 21. A minor nuisance.
This behaviour may depend on the servicepack.

Tim,

Protel stores default data that causes the behavior you describe.   You can
control what you get two ways.

1.  Check out the TOOLS - PREFERANCES - DEFAULT PRIMITIVE tab.   There you
will find the dialog boxes that allow input and editing of the things you
noted.

2.  While placing (ie holding down Lft mouse button) and object such as a
text lable, net name, pin, etc, press the TAB key which opens a dialog box.
Any thing you enter here will now be saved as the default entry for future
placements.   Note that hitting TAB after the item is placed does not
effect the defaults.

Regards
Dave Lewis

Hi Tim:

You probably have your default primitives set to permanent.
Look under Tools...Preferences...Default Primitives. You can
edit them and keep these values permanent with the check
box on the right.

The pin number (and name?) auto-increment, and the pin place form always
offers to use the number after the last one placed.  When you do Place
Pin, hit Tab to get the pin information form, and change the name and
number as required.

 
 Why is the net of the power ports I place on a schematic the same net name
 of the very first power port I ever placed in protel, ever?

Again, while placing a power port, hit Tab to get the info form, and
change the name (and port type, if desired), and that name and port type
will become the new default.
 
 Why is it that when I place a text string in PCB I get the text that I was
 using in a completely different .ddB?

Same as above.
 
 Why is this info being stored and how do I stop it from doing so? Especially
 the pin number starting 8.

If you change the pin number _while_ placing a pin, you will get a new
default value next time you go to place a pin - this is frequently
useful, as when placing a series of pins with sequential numbers.

because that's the way it is!
i get different numbers though
i guess it beats getting access violations because some field wasn't
expected to be empty

maybe dxp fixes some of these things?

 Tim,
 
 if you use those holes just for the mechanical fixing points, you can create
 them by using Fills in the footprint. If you want to plate them through,
 there are some PCB manufacturers doing it on request. If you want to create
 them as pads, that is not possible. You will have to wait until DXP SE(sixth
 edition).
