Hello
My GC Prevue software to view gerbers with has stopped working....gc-prevue told me its because we need to pay now to continue with it ($50/yr). We also use the free "viewmate", but do you agree, that the free version of viewmate is not as good as gc-prevue basic gerber viewer? Basic gerber-viewer GC Prevue seems more flexible and better than basic gerber viewer viewmate? Or is it that i just dont know how to use the free viewmate?...certainly swapping which layer "goes on top" doesnt seem possible with viewmate. Also, the grid in free viewmate doesnt seem to be changeable manually? #### SunnySkyguy ##### Advanced Member level 5 If you want to be professional, buy a good tool. treez ### treez Points: 2 Helpful Answer Positive Rating #### dick_freebird ##### Advanced Member level 5 Don't some of the "free" PCB tools have Gerber import plus the ability to touch stuff?$50 a year ought not to gripe you much, half an hour's
pay is probably better spent on the familiar tool than
trying to learn a new one of equal or lesser utility. Try
