Hi,

Again - SHOW (started in BRD) will disappear after sheet change
(searching for this net). This is IMHO a bug.

BTW when we will have serious SHOW function ? As many times mentioned ?

Hello,

I confirm that this show behavior is really really annoying.
The show command (in board or in schematic) have to many limitations:
- If a net (or part) is placed on different sheet, the window that lists
all the occurrences must appear all the time, even if the net is present
on the active sheet.
- the window that lists all the occurrences must keep the focus, so we
can zoom in and out in the schematic without closing this window.

Ok, ok, I'm always complaining... but i think, IMHO, this is the most
frustrating thing in Eagle. I use the "shwo @" all the time and it's a
pain !

Guillaume.

we understand. The reason why we can't change this so easily is that the
change of a sheet is internally treated like execution of another command,
the EDIT command. If a new command is executed, the old one's finished first,
which is unhighlighting all again. However, we will look into this.
Thanks for your other suggestions as well.

Hmmm, what about getting this SHOW command from the buffer and execute
it again "in the background" ???? This should be easy for a good
programming engineer ;-)
