Re: Eeschema annotate block / specific component types proposal


That's an interesting take on it. I can foresee the catastrophic addition
of loads of other components though, if there's an error in the schematic
somewhere and a rogue missing / one-over unit gets cascaded down sheets.

What do other EDA tools do with annotation? Do they have this feature? Do
they handle these conditions?
