I would like to see:
*) Support for hirachical designs - like correcting the page headers to the current hirachical name of the symbol.
This feature is not supported by good old scout (now cross referencing).
*) change attribute (now properties) size, visibility
*) reposition properties like on symbol (for the whole design)
Thanks you for the reply Wolfgang, I will look into getting this implemented and get back with you.
I hope within DxDesigner :
1. We can set the visibility of the property globally not sheet by sheet.
2. Update the parts which are not consistant with the central library data by one single click of the mouse.
Thanks for your suggestion, this will be added to the list.
I would like to have a better management of the reference designators of a schematic: for instance would be nice to have a button to reassign all the refdes for a specific type of components (R/C/U/... chosen by the user and following the 'normal' rule: from top to bottom and left to right of the sheet location) or reassign all the refdes just for a single sheet
Thanks Luigi for the feedback, that feature is already on the books to be implimented in the near future.
Will the DxDesigner Automation Utilities be available for the Linux platform?
At time of release, the windows enviroment will be the only supported OS. As the need for the tools grow, and I have time to port them, then I will port the code back to VBScript...most likely starting with the plugin manager.
I will like have the possibility to extract from the schematic or from the selected components in a page some info, like:
the name of the symbol,the coordinates of the symbol in the schematic page, the status of the symbol (rotation and mirror), the page,
some attributes tha i need (choosing by request) and generate an ascii report of these information.
Symbol Refdes Pos_X Pos_Y Rot Mirror Attribute_1 Attribute_2 Etc.

Thanks for any reply.
Color Nets Tool:
When I press the button Colorize Nets the tool stops working.
Windows Pop Up:
Color Nets has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.
Modify Component Properties:
Changing of colors does not work correct:
eg. Selecting Basic Color (Pink) - Delivers in the Color section (255,0,255) but this is interpreted as yellow.
Selecting Yellow - Delivers in the color section (255,255,0) but this is shown as pink
Changing of colors inside DxDesigner is done "wrong" as shown in the tool (pink instead of yellow).
Selecting pink as color and right the result in the tool.
Now the same with selecting yellow and right the result:
Windows 7 64bit.
EE7.9.1 Update 12.
I tried it in an hirarchical design.
Thanks for letting us know Wolfgang. The link is fixed now.
I will look into what is causing the problem(s) and get back to the community as soon as I can.
