Click-and-Drag Resize on Pads and all Graphic Objects

#1 Post by ReverseEMF » 20 Apr 2014, 16:19

In the Component Layout module (and anywhere else appropriate), it would be just fantastic if you guys would add the ability to resize pads (etc.) with a click-and-drag action (like in CAD Drawing programs). That way I won't have fiddle with numbers/math in order to change the size of pads and such. Then add a snap-to feature, and guides. That way, I can drag a guide onto the drawing area, and then use it to Click-Drag a pad until it snaps to the guide. I only have to precise position the guide once for each row/column of pads.

Also, nice, would be alignment tools:

- Align to left, right, center, top, bottom, middle

And, "same size as":

- width, height, both

And relative to canvas or to selected (i.e. "center on canvas", "center to first selected", "align right side of all selected to first selected", etc.)
If left to evolution, would this PCB ever design itself, and what would the lead time be on that?
