Re: Diff Pairs & Length tuning in the product branch


Looks very nice, I look forward to trying it out when I get home.

I will use the possibility to mention that, ... if you fell like
writing docs, don't forget what you wrote in [2] and merge it with the
effort in [3] when updated.

> Dear all,
> We've just merged the new features of the Interactive Router to the
> product branch:
> - Routing differential pairs (in push&shove mode too).
> - Tuning trace length.
> - Tuning differential pair length and skew.
> There's a video tutorial and a demo available on YouTube [1].
> The merge also includes some improvements to the selection/edit tools
> that we've developed alongside the new router features:
> - Snapping to the origin axes when moving (allowing to move an item
> exactly vertically/horizontally wrt its former position)
> - Editing footprint pad properties directly on PCB.
> - Moving pads of a footprint directly on PCB.
> - Opening the footprint editor for selected footprint on a PCB in GAL mode.
> - Dragging footprints by origin, pad 1 or pad nearest the cursor.
> - Guessing the best selection candidate instead of displaying the
> disambiguation menu every time.
> We did our best to make sure the branch compiles and runs correctly, and
> we'll greatly appreciate your feedback - be that bugs, feature requests
> or suggestions for improvements. Please keep in mind this is the first
> public release of the Diff Pairs, so some fine tuning may be needed in
> the future.
> Many thanks to all developers, funders & users for your help and support!
> Cheers,
> Tom & Orson
