5.99 eeschema - selecting a Wire

In 5.99, I’m drawing a block diagram for a hierarchical design. The WIRE initially draws in Green, for a high power signal I’d like it to be Red and I’d like that to be in a single operation.

If I select a wire segment, then do “Highlight Net”, it appears to select the entire wire (it turns corners) as expected. ‘E’ pops up the Edit window where I can change line width and color. Entering OK applies the edit ONLY to the initially selected segment, rather than the entire net.

A block select is not an option as there are other wires within the block.


I think the proper way to color a net is to create a net class (File / Schematic setup / Project / Net classes) and apply it to the wire(s) you need.

Yeah, using netclasses will be much easier to edit.

The problem with Highlight Net is that highlighting is different from selection. We don’t currently have a “select net” in Eeschema.

“Select Net” is what i was expecting (hoping) as a side effect of Highlight Net.
