Layout - Blinky Net

#1 Post by tartan5 » 30 May 2015, 11:07

In Layout, it would be awesome to be able to blink all pads associated with a net at, say 1 Hz. When doing large designs it would make it much easier to see where a particular net needs to go when zoomed out.

When zoomed out it is very difficult to see ratlines, but a blinking pad is much easier to see. Also could blink routed traces, but the ability to turn off trace blinking would be nice. You can simulate this by opening a large design, going to net view in the design manager, picking a net, and using the up/down arrows back and forth, but this will blink two nets not just one...

Thanks!

Just going to resurrect this request.....

Click on a net in design manager, and blink all associated pads at 2 Hz or so. This feature could be enabled / disabled in options. When laying out a board, it makes it much easier to locate associated pads. You already highlight the pads, so this should be relatively easy to implement....
Thanks
