easier pcb and breadboard layout

adam 4 years ago

i've been using fritzing to copy schematics from books and websites - it's easy to use for this, but i'm having trouble with pcb layouts - specifically that the parts don't seem to be in the same places as the schematic when initially placed by the pcb generator.

 

i just tried a simple circuit with just a pot and an led and it seemed the parts were rotated by 90 degrees in the pcb layout

 

i suppose my feature request is that this is made simpler - my suggestion is that the schematic is copied into the pcb screen, and the symbols replaced by the parts

 

i know for things like IC's there may still be tangled connections, but i think it should mostly work better like this.
