How can we improve Design Master?

Circuit loops broken into two

When you loop from one device to another, be able to select that loop and break it in to two loops that can each individually be moved or broke. This way we can have "S" loops.

DM Note: When we implement this, it will probably be by allowing you to insert a loop using a pline. This will allow you to insert the loop however you want without any restrictions.

        This would be awesome!! I have lots of instances where I really need to just draw a straight line with radiuses at the corners for the sake of keeping my work very clean looking.

        @Solomon. That is a nice idea and shows how easy it should be to create this feature. It reminds me of the one-line where you can add a break point in the middle or end. When you select the added loop, you can see there is multiple movable points, so why not make one of those points a dummy switch and allow us to move it or add another one if needed?

        There is a simple workaround for this. Make a switch that is simply a donut on the defpoints layer. Add this switch into your drawing where you want to loop to change direction, delete the loop and manually add loops from device A to the donut to device B. You have to manually move the individual loops around so they are tangential at the donut, but this works pretty well.
