Hi John, I've moved your question to the PADS layout community where it is likely to get a quicker response. Best regards, Cathy
Thank you, Cathy!
My coworker, Mr. T., offered this workaround which works really nicely:
OptionsDlg.ActiveTab = "Design"
if OptionsDlg.DesignDlg.LineTraceAngle = 0 then
OptionsDlg.DesignDlg.LineTraceAngle = 2
OptionsDlg.DesignDlg.LineTraceAngle = 0
I assign this macro to the Alt-A, which provides a slightly easier way (IMO) to switch angle modes than the "aa" and "ad" modeless commands.
The only apparent shortcoming is that when the macro runs the "Tools/Options/Design" menu appears for a fraction of a second: a minor nuisance.
I'd love to find a way to read the "LineTraceAngle" property in a macro without having to pop open a menu. Any ideas?
