Re: Proposal to update eeSchema annotation?


Cool! A great idea.

I'd never heard of "epics" before this.

I created an epic for annotation related issues. You should probably file each proposition as a report if there's no report already.


    Incorporate undo

There's an existing issue for "Back annotation changes unable to be undone in schematic", but there are more problems with Annotation.

With one simple component open the annotation dialog, annotate and close. The component is annotated, but:

1) "Save" is not activated in the toolbar. It's activated in the File menu. But when I click on the canvas, the button is activated.

2) There's no undo. If I annotate manually by editing the refdes, Undo works. IIRC Undo has worked previously.

These must be reported separately, right? (I'm asking from the senior developers.)
