The PCB Editor - Reports page of the Preferences dialog.


As its name suggests, the PCB Editor – Reports page of the Preferences dialog provides numerous controls relating to the functionality of the Reports feature within the PCB workspace.


The PCB Editor – Reports page is part of the main Preferences dialog (DXP » Preferences) and is accessed by clicking the Reports entry under the PCB Editor folder, in the left-hand pane of the dialog.



The PCB reports displayed in this list can be created as text, HTML or XML files. Against each report select which of these types you would like to generate. You can choose one or more. You can also choose which of the generated reports you want to open/show after they have been created. The XSL template is displayed in the XML Transformation Filename column, this can be modified to customize the report if required. 

Supported reports are:

  • Design Rule Check
  • Net Status
  • Board Information
  • BGA Escape Route
  • Move Component(s) Origin to Grid
  • Embedded Boards Stackup Compatibility
