Loading and saving FileSystem based Design Projects
What does not
Loading and saving Database files (including Design projects and schematic/PCB libraries).
This means that the *.ddb libraries that come with protel wont load.
Trying to add a ddb library results in error message: "File is not recognized"
Trying to load ddb project results in Protel trying to convert the file to another format. This results in an access violation to kernel32.dll and sometimes with "Access violation at address 0044D8B2 in module 'Client99SE.exe"
Creating a new project of Database format results in error message "Root has been deleted". When OK is clicked: "Access violation at address 0044D8B2 in module 'Client99SE.exe"
Resizing the main window while PCB document is open results in erratic refreshing of screen which seems to go on for quite some time before you can regain control of the application. Do not recommend resizing window while documents are open within.
When floating toolbars are moved they have problems being redrawn.
