  • Fixed an issue where clearance violations were incorrectly detected by the Online DRC between routes connected via a Connection Point.
  • Improved an DRC violation Edited Component Check to show more detailed error description.
  • Fixed an issue where an DRC violation Keep Out Violation could be incorrectly detected.
  • Fixed an issue where an MRC violation Clearance Violation could be incorrectly detected.
  • Fixed an issue where an MRC violation Clearance Violation was not detected between silks and references when the check within the same part was set to OFF.
  • Fixed drawing misalignment issues that occurred on arc lines and routes.
  • Improved the conversion accuracy to address an issue where PCBs would not be drawn in 3D due to board outline errors.
  • Fixed an issue where unnecessary teardrops would be generated under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed an issue where references could not be redisplayed after deleting them.
