Altium Designer 10 Update 21 build 10.1181.24817 | 1.81 GB

The Altium Development team are pleased to announce the 21st update for Altium Designer which provides further enhancements to Altium Designer, including improvements to re-annotate, new auto-zoom options in Cross Select Mode, and updated support for vendor tools.

This release focuses on additional enhancements to Altium Designer, with the key highlights being:

- Improvements to Re-Annotate
Re-annotate has been improved and now includes options for what to re-annotate (aatop & bottom, top only, bottom only, selected), and optionally allows for the protection of components with locked designators. Another new option is a user-definable location tolerance (Comparison Threshold), which allows components that are slightly out of line to still be annotated in a logical manner. Re-annotate now also uses the component bounding rectangle (without designator), where it previously used the bounding rectangle that included the designator, which could result in undesirable annotation results.
- Auto-Zoom in Cross Select Mode
Auto-zooming in Cross Select Mode has been enabled, with three options available: No Zoom, Zoom to Last Selected, and Zoom to All.
- Updated Support for Vendor Tools
Xilinx ISE v14.1 and Altera QuartusII v11.1 and v12.0 are now supported. There are an additional 25 new enhancements included in this release, with half being a result of requests made through BugCrunch alone, and many of the remaining being a result of forum posts and support cases. So please keep the reports coming!

About Altium

Altium believes that anyone who wants to make a difference using electronic products should be able to do so. And we help designers do this by giving them everything they need to be able to make this difference. We develop, create and sell electronics design tools – software and development hardware – that unify the entire electronics design process in one application, that is easy to use and as affordable as we can make it. This unified electronics design environment – it's called Altium Designer – is the result of years of development work but is now just one part of AltiumLive, a web-based portal that is the means by which we help professional electronics designers connect people and devices. The two go hand-in-hand. Altium Designer and AltiumLive together create an ecosystem that is greater than the sum of the parts. They bridge the gap that separates the design of a product and how that product is manufactured.
