Slow Part Searches

#1 Post by Brent » 06 Jun 2019, 19:08

Searching for parts takes several minutes just to find out it isn't there (several seconds for each attempt).

Would you consider creating an index that can be searched within the time it takes to type a single keystroke (20ms)?

There may be other innovative ways of displaying the parts, as well. This single list is easy to program, but isn't very easy for the users to scan all those matches.

Please consider a grid that fills the entire display with footprints + patterns.
Then allow honing in, to include or exclude certain features.

We considered creating the index that could improve search speed significantly.
When we finish current development tasks ( new Pattern Editor features, interactive router, etc.) we will reconsider our plans.
