Hi As a new user to SW PCB I'm still getting used to where the tools are hidden. How do I interactively lengthen a route using a trombone shape trace? Thanks.

I reopened a project I had designed and released a while ago, made some schematic changes, updated the PCB, and now I need to redraw some traces.   When I start the interactive routing tool and press tab to get the menu, I get a warning "The PCB has no valid via style rule defined".   This makes no sense. I have via rules. I'm not even trying to… (Show more)

Nearly all components that I use I generate myself and keep in library files for when edits are needed (which is fairly often). Is there a way to link to the library from the schematic so I don't have to search for it manually?   KiCAD does this with a library editor link available from the context menu, which is very convenient, but I don't see… (Show more)

So can we actually design flex circuits in SW PCB?  It says you can in the data sheet.  But the options for it aren't in SW PCB (as far as I can see anyway).  Board region stacks....   Then again, the datasheet references "hardness design " and "Ridge Flex PCB".

Before I generate all my data, I check the BOM and make sure the suppliers I've specified have my parts in stock. So far, if there's a supply issue I have had to go to my library and change the information, update all components in the schematic, then re-generate the BOM.   There's gotta be a way to just select the second part supplier… (Show more)

Is there any way to get the variables from the data card paired up with the title block parameters in SW PCB?  I haven't found anything on the ol' intertubes that says we can.  Oh how nice it would be to have all of this tied together.

Can SolidWorks PCB Read/open Allegro Files (Ex: .brd file) Can SolidWorks PCB Read/open IDF Format. If it reads Allegro or IDF file (Neutral file, emn/emp files), can it export files to SolidWorks 3D CAD If it can export will Traces, Vias and Silkscreen also export along and it can be seen in SolidWorks 3D.

How to create layer sets and quickly change between views ???? There si a button for choosing layer sets but it is disabled!   It is nightmare to rout without custom layers views
