Bug(fixed) - Schematic Editor : Autoplace fields does not work

Hi everyone,

Working on 6.0rc1, I stumbled upon the following behavior:

The clip shows me hitting the “O” Button to no avail.
The action should have moved the fields from the pull-up resistor on SCL to the left.
Selecting “Autoplace Fields” with the mouse doesn’t work either.
NB. I am working with the standard grid

here is the same situation under 5.1.12 - it works without any problems:

Tested with g08cb573e11 and can confirm it ! :blush: Kudos & Thank you!

PS: the diamond ring is one of a series of photos I’ve taken myself during the total solar eclipse of 2006-03-29 (I traveled to Turkey just for the photos.)

I’ve put 5 of them on my Google Drive (enjoy & share , just don’t sell) . Check out also the perl necklace, the corona (2006 was a year of low sun activity, so small corona)


Best Regards,


That triple bead image is really nice!

I’ve done some solar sketches, but I’ve never done any photography. http://www.rokeby.ie/index.html?panel=observatory
