Today our tools are modal with the selection filter automatically controlled by the mode you’re in. However with the introduction of Copy/Move Circuit, it does have a selection filter allowing the user to choose which objects that are modifiable in all modes can be selected and manipulated.
We are actively working on a major enhancement to the user interface to support a native selection filter within the system as well as the automatic selection filter capabilities defined in Place, Route, and Draw modes. We see the need for both manual and automatic selection methodologies within our system.
