    I'm not familiar with that app. Does it have the ability to print the file in the actual size? If so, you can use the printed foil pattern and a ruler (or the actual device) to see if the outline of the device footprint is accurate.

    Traxmaker is an obsolete program that is no longer supported.

    You should download Cadsoft Eagle or ExpressPCB or other freeware program.

    traxmaker can make own library and can create own pad size. If u use DIP-## (dual in line package) component u can get actual size of ICs. If dont like that pad size u can repair that pads.
