Update 9 for Altium Designer 10


Update 9 for Altium Designer 10


Altium Designer, AltiumLive, BugCrunch, updates, loop removal, polygon pour

I am pleased to announce a new update for Altium Designer.

This update focuses on addressing issues that have been raised in BugCrunch and includes:

  1. Polygon pour improvements, including the issue when joining copper pour to the thermal reliefs.
  2. Improvements to the interactive router loop removal tool
  3. Resolved the issue where the conflict resolution mode was not remembered after subsequent drag operations
  4. "Restore (n) Shelved Polygons" command now asks the user if the un-shelved polygons need to be re-poured straight away or not
  5. The files now open within the library project for SVNDblib.

Thank you to those who logged these issues in BugCrunch, nominated them, and voted for them!

Along with these issues, there are a variety of other issues that we have included in this release. For detailed information on what is delivered with this update, read the release notes.

The delivery of this update affects the following 7 modules:
