exporting to gerber

Postby trobinson » Wed Aug 21, 2013 1:14 pm

I imported a gerber file, made a modification to a pad.
I then went to export that modified file to a new gerber file with a NEW file name.
The problem is when I go to do that it ALWAYS overwrites my initial unmodified gerber file, even though I do a save as with a different file name.

What am I doing wrong??

At the bottom of the export dialog, there is a choice shown by the arrow below:


If you pick "Layer by layer" the name of the file that is written is taken from the "Layers to Export" list. It is the name that exists in the layers table.
If you pick combined, two thing happen:
(1) the name of the file is taken from the "File name" dropbox (you can type in the desired name).
(2) if more than one layer is selected, the data from all of them will go into one file
