Hi there,  I am quite new to Eagle, but I have used Cadence in the past and am familiar with it. A nice feature that Eagle could add is to allow Show Objects feature when using the Switch to Board button. Currently the board does not highlight and it would be good to have it. Another thing which is unfamiliar to me is if I could change the highlighting of wires in Eagle CAD. Cadence Virtuoso has a nice tool where you can change the color of the wire and thus use color coding to identify signals. Would Eagle benefit from this? Thank you. Look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes,CristianOriginal article at https://www.element14.com/community/message/201173?tstart=0#201173.

If you are interested I will dig it out.Cristian wrote: Another thing which is unfamiliar to me is if I could change the highlighting of wires in Eagle CAD.

Would Eagle benefit from this?Yes I think most people who come to EAGLE from the high end tools (I've used lots of Mentor Graphics tools) find the lack of this troubling. I've raised this one previously and I think CADSoft are aware all the requests for such a feature (along with persistent highlighting!) so hopefully we'll get this sorted at some point. Best Regards, RachaelOriginal article at https://www.element14.com/community/message/201213?tstart=0#201213.
