Hi All!   After a big Windows update I can no longer create a Project in PCB Services. Error is shown in the attached Picture. If I recall it has something to with the rights to write in certain folders. I can't remember the solution for this. Please advice!

Hi all,   How could I avoid these "false" warnings for cases where between an Output pin and and Input pin is some passive component, like a fuse or a resistor? I know there are some solutions like "specific NO ERC" but that's a bunch of work searching and marking each situation where there is indeed a indirect driving source, but with some 10… (Show more)

I have to add a footprint to a PCB lib from which I only have a .step drawing (only the bottom layer visible now). I know it's not possible to import this type of file  directly into PCB. But if I could just place the pads, outline and drill hole onto the drawing... but it is also not possible to add stuff when in 3D view, only in 2D, but there I… (Show more)

Hi all,   In our company we use Verdana font for all documents. In SW PCB, Times New Roman is the default font. I already created an own company template SchDot with all set to Verdana. I set "System Font" in each SchDoc to Verdana, but every time I create some new object, it appears with Times New Roman text fields again. Maybe I missed this… (Show more)

Has anyone seen an issue with most all dialog box fonts whereby the fonts are too small to read? I am using a Microsoft Surface Book 2 which uses a default screen resolution of 3240 x 2160.  See attached.   bp

We have some parts on a PCB that should always be part of the BOM, part of the ERC, but must not be exported into the Pick and Place file. Because depending on the variant of the product, they are manually mounted or not at the end of the production process. What kind of "Component Type" should be selected for them, or how should we handle these… (Show more)

Does anyone know how to create a schematic and layout snippet in Solidworks PCB that can be reused for future designs?  I would like to have a standard schematic and layout for regulator circuit that can be reused with little effort.

Hi,   Which ports beside 9780 need to be open in the network for the Communication to work without hickups for PCB Services?

Altium has released AD19.  It appears to no longer support locally hosted Vaults.    This is a problem for the PCB Connector, which uses Vaults to transfer information back and forth.   Does this mean we have to spend more money on Altium Nexus or whatever if we want to continue to use the PCB Connector software?  Or is this product dead?
