Hi all. I've been using the desktop pro version to update an older project previously designed with the original online standard editor. The Editor is definitely nicer to use although the workflow of some aspects take a little getting used to.
I have now however stumbled onto an issue. When autorouting I have found that in the pro version the process finishes but does not route 100% of the nets. The best I have managed to do is about 86%. No amount of manually moving and reorientation components or adjusting the routing rules will get it to complete 100%.
So as a test I exported the project as an Altium package and then imported it into the standard version. I then re-tried autorouting and the project completed 100% with no issues, even using cloud autorouting.
The autorouting engine is visually different in the pro version as the nets are routed at 90 degrees even though 45 degrees is selected and then at the end of the process the 'corners' are swapped to 45 degrees. Clearly the engine in the pro version is different from that used in the online and local routing engines and it does not appear to route correctly.
Pro version routing ....

Regular version routing ....

Both are set to route at 45 degrees.
I'm not sure if this is an environment issue, or that the pro version router is less permissive in its operation. However the standard version appears to be heaps better and far more refined. It also generates a result.
So I have the following questions
Assuming it's a setup issue, how can I set up the pro version auto routing to act the same as the regular version. Is this even possible?
Is there a workflow where I can achieve the same outcome or perhaps use the existing local EDA router?
Is this problem a known issue / limitation?
I am happy to invite support to the project if you think that it's a project issue, but it is not a public repo so I am unable to share it here
I'm not really interested in people telling me that I should manually route it. Some aspects of the project are manually routed prior to auto routing the rest, but the issue remains that the pro router fails to route what is a pretty simple project even without predefined manual nets.
Thanks in advance.
