Feature Request: CvPCB search function
selecting items from CvPCB can sometimes be difficult if you have
several thousand of footprints added. Scrolling down and searching
alphabetically is consuming much time.
It would be really fast if above the list of the footprints in CvPCB a
textfield would be added and then you enter the name of the desiered
footprint and it displays you a list of the awailable footprints.
Example: Entered "*SOT23*"
Results eg. "-someprestring-SOT23", "SOT23poststring", "preSOT23post".
Also a wildcad (* and %) would be great. I'm quite sure that there must
be some search libs that supply such search functions.
I think this additional feature will speed up the design process with Kicad.
Another feature request for CvPCB ist that all footprints are sorted by
their lib. I mean it this way: Lets say we have a lib "a" with
footprints "a1" to "j10"
and a lib "b" with footprints "a1" to "j10".
It would be great if it could be displayed this way:
If i click now on a it shoud deflate, clicking on it again all items
should be visable. I think you know what i mean.
It would be really great if you could discuss and -if conviced- realize
my two feature requests.
