Trying to get into using the software and bumping against a few things.
the behavior of the gui when clicking on the maximize button shouldn’t cause the window to go full screen, it should just maximize. I see that cmd-F doesn’t do anything, and that is what should be causing the window to go full screen, and actually toggle between full screen and not.
in the board editor, is it possible (yet) to choose the color theme so a white background is used instead of a black one?
also in the board editor, I think it would be good to be able to have the option to turn on rulers, top and side, so we can see at a glance the size of the board outline against those rulers. And eventually echo the cursor’s position on those rulers (when they’re turned on).
Also I bumped against a little snag that took me a while to figure out what’s going on:
In the board editor, after having placed a couple of components in the schematic editor, I can see those in the “place devices” side bar, but can’t place them, and I assume this may be because those library components may not be complete and missing the footprint part, because no pull down menu is showing to choose a device and there is no footprint to choose.
It took me a while because I was intuitively attempting to drag the listed components directly to the board, which doesn’t happen, and it also took some time browsing through the skimpy documentation to find the relevant info on how to place parts on a board.
Perhaps something visible could help identify such situation so we would know at a glance what’s going on. Some visual clue, maybe in red or whatever, explaining why there is no menu to pick something from…
