fusion why do you toy with my heart

So i am using a pcb and sch that were built in eagle i opened them in fusion now everything shows up good.These are my current problems until i find some more.Everytime something new comes out in fusion my heart is filled with joy then crushed when i actually use it in fusion.You guys have something amazing here but it keeps pushing me away when i use it,please prove me wrong i want fusion to be as good as you say it is without the basic functionally of a program being this buggy.I love autodesk products and iam gonna give you a hard time on issue's i want to see success.

 

1.Theres no link between the sch file and pcb file i imported is there something i need to do?

2.Undo shortcut doesnt work Ctrl+Z does nothing but the undo button works

3.More often then not Ctrl+S wont save the pcb or sch

4.Randomly says iam not connected to the internet,but windows and google say iam then it will randomly reconnect

There is a YT video on how to import and bind existing Eagle projects into Fusion360.
The need for a video to import an existing project is evidence that the process is ridiculous.

Technically - it works but it is silly over-complicated process that should be abstracted to a simple "IMPORT EAGLE PROJECT' button.

 

There are little bugs that are to be expected in an early release - but there are also some non-intuitive and bizarre omissions and changes that seem so fundamental that they should have been dealt with at an alpha testing phase.

Oh its early release i didnt know,i thought they would tell me or ask if i wanted to use a early access feautre i assumed it was a release version since all i had to do was restart and update fusion normally.i think i will wait until they output a release version then.Also here is the video for anyone else to show you how to import the files in maybe add to the wishlist a import button.

It is officially released.  It's just that it's kind of rough around the edges still.  Probably best to stick with Eagle for any critical work for the time being.

That is a remarkably generous assessment.

I was feeling charitable.  😁
