ExpressPCB Plus comments/issues (2 replies)
First of all I am really excited about Plus, and looking forward to being able to use it for development. I have already ordered a board transferred over from Classic, and added bottom silk-screens!
Observations/Questions thus far:
- Calling up any Help causes a crash.
- Can you please get rid of SHIFT for mouse/keyboard scrolling? Classic was very easy to use in that respect, with keyboard panning or scroll-wheel dragging. I don't understand what the scroll-wheel click is doing at the moment.
- Will there be a way to import Classic library parts?
I tried out the ExpressPCB Plus last week and to be honest I was not that impressed with it, so I uninstalled it and will wait a year or so until it is stable and works better.
I believe it needs a lot more development and to get rid of the bugs before it is to the standard of some of the other PCB design software available.
I will still use 7.5.0 (which also needs tweaking here and there) but on the whole is stable.
I am have not had any reports of the Help Menu causing crashes. The help manuals are just PDF Files. They are linked in your Start Menu.
The scroll wheel click re-centers your design to full view.
We will have a release shortly that makes importing parts easier.
