Manage parts option


Allow users to edit and manage parts directly by right clicking on object in schematic or layout and editing from there.

Now, I have to look up part number, go to symbol editor, click open tab, paste number, etc...

Also, manage parts isn't linked to the symbol editor, so if I want to manage a part, I have to physically find the part AGAIN in manage parts

Sunstone Removes Drill Size Restrictions on Quickturn

Back in 'The Day', when we first launched our Quickturn PCB services, Sunstone had to put some restrictions on some features to allow our customers more affordable, and fast, turn-time boards. Back then, these restrictions made it easier for Sunstone to minimize the number of tool changes and job-specific setups. That kept the factory running at full-tilt, and THAT kept our turn times short while still priced competitively.

One of those key parameters we limited ...
