  • Bergues - Einbaubuchse

    Is the Bergues - Einbaubuchse a standard AC Inlet? It doesn't look exactly right and I don't know how to get the dimensions of the macro object to check.

  • Found 3 bugs

    Bug #1: Your 'Search' in this forum does not work. If you click on the search icon in the upper right corner of this forum it will dump you to a blank page.


    Bug #2: Where is the 8-32 tap? In the Drill Hole Properties dialog -> Thread -> UNC (Unified Coarse). The drop down list does not have a selection for #8-32. There is a selection for #8-24, which I assume is a typo as I can not find this size on any tap/drill chart.


    Bug #3: Reference point of an object doesn't seem to work. Place three holes on a panel. Group all holes. Double Click the group to bring up the Group Properties dialog. Redefine the reference point of the group, either by clicking one of the corner radio buttons to the left or by selecting the reference point of an object. The 'new' reference point of the group turns red in the dialog and the 'new' cross hairs of the group reference point appear on the front panel, but you can't do anything with the 'new' group reference point.


    For example, if I made the center point of one of the three holes in my group the 'new' reference point of the group and then try to align it to the horizontal and verical center of the panel, it moves the group with respect to the center point of the GROUP to the new location, instead of moving the group with respect to the center point of the referenced HOLE to the new location. It's as though the group center is ALWAYS the reference point, regardless of where the 'new' reference point is defined in the group.

  • Unified screw thread...



    I am laying out a panel and have chosen to use an 8-32 screw for mounting a device to it. However, there are only 8-24 and 8-36 options available in the software.


    Is this a bug? My charts show no 8-24 and McMaster-Carr does not supply that thread size. If i select 8-24 threads will I end up with 8-32?


    Thanks in advance,

  • My Custom Connectos are gone in the new version

    I had some custom connectors I had made as templates that are no longer available. I understand the shift to seperate the included connector and user connectors but I do not see my custom connector anymore.

    Just downloaded 4.0


    I noticed that:

    On the main program The icon for inserting a curved slot has a help window bubble that pops up that says "Inserdt curved slot"


    I had one place where the error message popped up in German. I could not replicate this error so I can give no other info.
