Wish List

1. The option for wire #s & copies not to move
unless the wire they are directly above moves.
2. A cable parent that is not a conductor, but
which contains the info for the conductors in
it, an easier way to handle Profibus cables etc.
3. Either CAT and MFG on the same layer, or a
way to to show and hide on dwg.
4. Main Report Builder - More customization, add buttons
for created reports and report formats, can merge/concatinate fields of choice, ratings/descriptions on reports other than BOM
5. A rating/field dedicated to LOAD.
6. Subassembly catalog items listed/editable from
the Main assembly component. Subassembly items not
unique to assembly - ie I can use the same connector
on many cables without duplicating the connection
catalog entry to give it an unique assembly list name.

Add to wish list the ability to select with window
to the wire cutter utility, much like erase works.

Another nice thing would be to be able to
see a "thumbnail" of all the drawings in a
project and be able to open them from there.

Maybe what you'd like is already there. When you click on view the highlighted drawing in a project opens as a thumbnail and you can then open the drawing frome there. Not sure if that is what you were asking for or not.
