I got an idea for making it more easy to design the PCB from the schematic. I don’t know if other tools allow this, but it would make it easier.
When going from the schematic to the PCB design you get a rats nest. But it would be faster if you could make a selection of components in the schematic, and don’t have to place and route everything in one step.
If you only get the selected components to place and route at the PCB level, you can take care of the most important components first.
If I make a board, I place and route groups of components. But if you first make the whole schematic, you’ll get a headache of finding och grouping together component that you want next to each other.
So it would be great to mark the components in the schematic that you want to place and route. Then you could make the basic layout of everything in steps, and not all at once. Then you would not need to make the schematic in steps and place and route in in your PCB design, to get this incremental work flow.
