Well I finally purchased a Window based PCB layout program that will import effortlessly (well mostly) all my old Protel Autotrax files.
I still have both arms, legs, fingers and fingernails which would not have been the case if I had purchased the Altium product.
So now I'm like a kid in a candy store as I can use any Windows font for text instead of the dry, system font, I could use previously.
What do you find a hassle free font? For small text like say 36,48,60 mils? I tried Times New Roman but it seems that it has some very narrow legs with some characters and I'm afraid that the text could be unreliable.
Arial seems OK and it is close to the original system font, which by the way I can still use.
After almost 20 years of DOS based PCB layouts it gets a bit scary using a Windows based PCB program. This is the 1st one I seem to come to grips with. Tried demo versions of Altium but failed. Tried Kicad because of the "reasoable" price. Eagle scratched my eyes out and gave me severe headaches.
