    Importing a text file Reply

    Is there a way to import a text file into PCB editor?  We have fabrication notes in a word document or notepad that we would like to import without having to type them in.

    thanks

    Yes.  If you are in the Add Text command, you can RMB and select "Read  from File".

    Hope this helps.

    Also,

    If you want to import text from Excel, I find that if you first do a "Save as type: Formatted Text (Space delimited) " from within Excel, it works very well.
