Re: New Feature Request
Generally no. Some of what you are asking for is already in the
software. Until you get a clear understanding of what is there and not,
then please ask about cross probling on the user's maillist. Hopefully
you will get help there.
Is this the correct method for requesting new features...?
Then, after your understanding is clarified, and you understand the
difference between what you are asking for and what is already present,
goto the wiki
and find the URL for the "feature request" link to the tracker at
Please break your issues down into separate feature enhancement
requests, and place them there. Maybe somebody with the same need will
eventually code it.
Maybe not. :) Selling the feature will help, being clear will
help :) Frankly not everything that I read below is not clear, so
you will have to do better for it to get traction.
Again, start on the user's list to refine the feature enhancements, they
can help you possibly embellish the ideas along with you. You might
start by saying "I am thinking about posting the following feature
enhancement request...." what does everyone think about this?
If so, can a feature be added to allow cross probing between the
schematic and pwb...
Example would be:
Highlighting net(s) in PWB would simultaneously find (goto) and
highlight net(s) in the schematic...
Highlighting footprint(s) in PWB would simultaneously find (goto) and
highlight symbol(s) on the schematic...
Another feature would be:
Place footprints on PWB by highlighting by hierarchy block, sheet(s),
or symbol(s) on schematic...
Users could highlight or select symbol(s) on the schematic and
simultaneously have them grouped and ready to be placed on the PWB...
This would save time and enhance functional component placements when
manually placing components on a design...
