We wanted to give you a short summary of the latest updates in case you haven’t noticed or haven’t updated your PCB Droid yet.

Many users had problems with PDF and image exports due to their large computing capacity. To take over the burden from your device we added a server-side PDF and image export option. For now free users can only use this option once per day (note that you can still use your device to export if it’s suitable), but we may increase this amount after we made sure that this won’t overburden the server.
