Update 10 for Altium Designer 10 available

The Altium Development team are pleased to announce a new update for Altium Designer.

This update focuses on addressing further issues that have been raised in BugCrunch, including:

  1. Feature request to reset component designators when copying and pasting in schematic
  2. Angular dimensions will now be correctly saved, no matter how the inside/outside reference points are selected
  3. Implemented “Select touching area” and “Select touching line” for object selection in schematic sheets, libraries and OpenBus documents.

Along with these issues, there are also a few issues fixed for CAMtastic. For detailed information on what is delivered with this update, read the release notes.

The delivery of this update affects the following 3 modules in the System Components category:

  1. PCB System
  2. PCB Support
  3. Schematic System

Installation of these updated modules will bring their revision up to 10.600.22648. The Platform Build number will remain at 10.589.22577 as the Altium Designer Base module is not updated.
