Hi Dick,

Yes, I reverted before making the second change. The reason place does
not fall over is because it is dealing with reference designators and
not module names.

A snippet from the session file is below:

(session 5560.ses
(base_design 5560.dsn)
(resolution mil 100)
(component 0805
(place C49 521250 -216830 front 0)

Incidentally, component is the only place where the 0805 module name
is mentioned in the session file.

Again, thanks for the pointer to the specctra pdf. I will grab it so
that I have it at hand in the future.

Best Regards,

Brian Sidebotham.
