Missed the CDN this year, but have questions about improvements to 15.7, specifically in the drill table. We output our table in inches, to three decimal places. Unfortunately, if the drill size is say .040", the value output in the table is .04, without the trailing zero. Is there some tweak that can be made to add trailing zeroes to a certain number of decimal places?
You can specify how many trailing digits you would like to appear in the legend by changing the drill file located at:<$cdsroot>\share\pcb\text\nclegend\*.dltThere is a section refered to as Precision and reads as follows:; ?Precision; ----------; ; Precision specifies the number of decimal digits to follow the; decimal point in size and tolerance values appearing in the table. ;; -1 = as many as are needed ... minimum 1 (DEFAULT); 0 = suppress decimal point and decimal digits; >0 = always put decimal digits after the decimal point,; adding any trailing 0's as necessary; ?Precision -1I have set that to be a 9 and the output in inches for a 38 thousandths hole was0.038000000A bit extreme - just testing the code :-). IN all the .dlt files are very well self documented. Take some time to peruse them.
