Re: [PATCH] Add bidirectional net highlight cross-probing



I just tested this and I like it!  It doesn't seem like a high risk
feature so if now one objects I'm going to merge it.  If you have time,
I do have one minor request.  When highlighting a net in the board
editor, if the net in the schematic editor is scrolled of the display,
the schematic editor centers the net so you can see it.  The same thing
does not happen when a net is highlighted in the schematic editor and
the net on the board is scrolled off the display.  Would you please fix
this so the net in the board editor is centered on the display when the
net in the schematic editor is selected.
