Re: DRC reports


The problem with all tree structure UI's is that they are difficult to
navigate. The locations of the top level items change based on what is
opened. There's constant need or at least temptation to open and close
items. Tabs are always there and you learn them by heart quickly. You can
instantly change between clearance violations and nonconnected items. I
would probably hate to have everything in one tree. I have intended to file
a report asking to add tabs, at least for edge.cuts and courtyards. But I
think it would be best to have both - a couple of tabs for completely
different things, and tree structures inside some of them.
