Enable Hardware Acceleration

EasyEDA Pro PCB uses GPU rendering PCB. Please upgrade your PC GPU driver or Graphic card if you cannot use PCB smoothly.

Suggesting Win10 and above, at least 8GB ram.

Known Issues

  1. At present, it is found that some Win7 systems cannot run the client normally, and the interface cannot be opened normally. The reason is unknown, which belongs to the system compatibility problem. Sometimes it takes a long time to load the display page.
    If win7 opens the PCB black screen, you need to upgrade the graphics card driver. If the PCB still cannot be opened after upgrading the driver, it is recommended to upgrade to win10, or use Google Chrome to access.

  2. The detection update in the settings has not been implemented yet. It is expected that the V1.7 version will support detection updates, and V1.8 supports downloading update footprints.

  3. The maximized area offset in the upper right corner of the Linux version. The Mac version of the launch icon does not appear in the launcher.

  4. At present, it is found that some Win7 systems cannot run the client normally, and the interface cannot be opened normally. The reason is unknown, which belongs to the system compatibility problem. Sometimes it takes a long time to load the display page.

  5. If the windows system opens a white screen, you can try:

    1. Turn off the firewall first, and then start the client. If it runs normally after shutdown, you need to add the client to the firewall whitelist.
      How to turn off the firewall: https://jingyan.baidu.com/article/cd4c2979d55c41756e6e60a1.html
    1. If the firewall is turned off and the screen cannot be loaded, please try.
      1. Close the client first, and open the cmd command window of the system with administrator privileges,WIN + R keys, then enter cmd, enter
