This is really about the footprint editor.
- If I make my own grid while creating a footprint to make it easier to put pads in the right position I find the cursor still moves in tiny increments.
I do Dimensions | Grid Properties
to set (in this latest case) the grid (in mm) to 1.3, 2.9
However, the cursor position still moves in 0.005mm steps! Can this be changed?
- From searching I believe to measure distances you have to hit space bar to set a measurement start place and then move the cursor and something will tell you the relative distance.
If I hit space bar to set the measurements to 0 in a particular place, that does bring up in the bottom of the window information telling me exactly where the pad is if I click on a pad, however, although I get x and y and dx and dy measurements changing at the bottom of the window they in no way give me the distances moved from where I hit the space bar. Also, I want the measurements to move in grid size steps. What am I missing here?
- The grid doesn’t show up. Even with the grid box ticked in the render tab, I get nowt! I also can’t change its colour. Are these known bugs or am I missing something?
Many thanks for your help.
