How can we improve Design Master?

Default label locations in blocks

Be able to specify locations for labels in blocks. When the labels are added to the block, they will be placed in the desired locations, rather than in the somewhat random default location they are currently placed in.

        You would have to give us the option of locating the labels based on 4 separate rotations as it can changed based on rotation. I also believe that is why it takes so much time to go back and make all the labels look good as DM seems to have the default locate based on a rotation of 0, but you only have a 25% chance that is the actual rotation. Then we have to go back and fix hundreds of labels that are not at 0.

        The current workaround is to insert the device, insert the labels, and make the labels look correct on one. Then use the "Match Device Note Locations" command to make the labels on the other devices the same. See this link for more information on that command:
        http://www.designmaster.biz/docs/elec/index.html?match_device_note_locations.htm

        With this request, the labels would come in correct to start, rather than having to be adjusted after they are inserted.
