First let me say that Autodesk appreciates the time you and others spend on this discussion group providing feedback. It is a great place for us to hear directly from the people using the products. Also, I will take opportunity to encourage you and anyone else on the forum to become beta users if you aren't already. Being a beta user is a great way to get your feedback in before the release.
To answer your question about logging - logging means that it is on the list to be considered for a future change. I wish I could be more specific than that but I can say that the user comments are considered when priority is assigned. The more impact on your business the higher prioity to Autodesk. That said, I cannot say if/when this issue will be resolved.
I will add your comments here to the logged issue. Also, since this is a base AutoCAD issue you might also post on the AutoCAD discussion group.
I am not sure why this wasn't in the AutoCAD What's New although AutoCAD tends to highlight the bigger features in the What's New section. It is a good idea to include a section and maybe group together these types of changes to make users aware of them. I will make sure to include this suggestion in the logged item.
P.S. I wasn't actually on at 4:14 a.m. so I am not sure where that came from! Maybe some time difference between where I am and where the discussion group server is.
I left a company using 2010 ACE and it was a dog as the network and computer were not up to it.
New company moving from 2007 to 2012. One of the first tools I tried was the multi wire bus. I found the same problem as you have. I thought I was going nuts as I am the only one here.
It is so fundemental it is crazy it was missed.
I feel better reading you have the same problem.

make sure you download the hotfix that addresses the AutoCAD Electrical issues. So when you run a command where the selection you are making is used for both selecting an entity and getting a location, the snap is active.
Hi, i use autocad electrical back in version 2011 because 2012 electrical is total useless for me without the old snap behavior.
And after about 30 years with autocad I cannot just change how I make drawings, and I have no time for that. My work as electric engineer travelling around the world is extreme stressful, and I don’t want my tools to make it even worse. I have often to make 500-1000 electric drawings for a project like all control systems and all electric installations for new factories, I must also work most of the weekends during a year , last year 211 days from home, so it cannot be too much to ask , give back the old snap behavior for us who needs it. I am sorry , I have no time for new courses or learn autocad all over again. I have no problems to understand some likes this new snap , but please give us who don’t the possibility to select the old snap behavior.
Autodesk, when people are complainig there must be something wrong, why dont you just fix this, it cannot be that difficult
it has worked perfect for more than 30 years??
Install Service Pack 1 and type SNAPGRIDLEGACY at the command line. Press enter and change the value to 1. Press enter again and you get old snap. I personally prefer the new non-snap so I can grip easier while zoomed in close before I execute a command. Before 2012 I often had to turn off snap, grip, and then turn snap on again. I like version 2012, but SP1 allows those who prefer the old snap behavior to revert.
I want help rearding tagging of wire. I have a query that if we extend same wire after terminals having same attributes, do we have to re-enter all the data again or there is automatic way that same data can be used.
Can you help
