It appears that PADS Layout 9.0 writes the ECO file regardless if the output box is checked or not. The designs I’m working on are all ready at the very limits that pads can handle. Any extra writing/processing time is a big deal with these extremely large boards.
Any other way to disable ECO write file? I already have, in the ECO options, UNCHECKED, Write ECO file. But it still writes it after any ECO change.
