Noncontinuous connections after reload if PCB

Thomas Welsch 4 years, 1 month ago


i made small double sided PCB with manual routing. All locks good without DRC warnings.

After restart Fritzing and loading the PCB I noticed many "brocken" connections:

PCB with brocken connections after reload


After another restart/reload I got this:

Moved wire


Did I something wrong (I'm using 0.9.1 beta...;-) )

I see this too. It does not happen everytime I load the FZZ file though.

Excactly the same thing here (0.9.1, under Linux). It seems most (not all) bends are turned into pins. These 'pins' show up as blanks on the PCB. At the third restart of Fritzing it worked (I think). This is a show stopper.

On my Mac this happens too.


The application is completely unusable with this behaviour. One time I got it to behave after restarting it 15 times. After my latest coredump my luck seems to have run out. It ensists on putting pins (or vias, whatever) on most wire bends.


Is there a version I can download where this bug has been fixed? Or is there a workaround?

I'm having this happen too. Unfortunately it makes the software completely unusable. Other than this it's great!!
