    Hi everyone,
    When I autoroute in Eagle, the traces extend into the center of pads and vias. Copper is therefore filling the drill hole locations making it difficult to position the drill bit to the center of the hole. I have to manually shorten the traces to the perimeters of the pads and vias.
    Can anyone please explain why it does this and what I can do to prevent it?

    I have same problem printing pcb file using DesignSpark5 pcb software.

    I solved by adding PDF printer in Windows. Then Print Setup and select added PDF printer.
    Print your pcb file and select Windows in Printer Output Menu. Don't select PDF.

    Hope this help.

    Let me know if it works.

    Try the user language program "drill-aid.ulp".

    Thanks for the responses and info Rleo6965 and Harald.
    I have found that when I print, the problem no longer exists.
