I was wondering if there was any appetite for colour text in schematics?
Using an expensive purchased suite (Altuim) I could assign schematic text to any colour I liked. I found it exceedingly useful as I could see at a glance that a group of blue pins might be outputs and orange pins inputs (for example).
Attached is such an image showing how the pins of a 3.3v microprocessor might be 5v tolerant, or be capable of analog input. Same with net labels, using colour to identify when the micro might be doing one job and using the pins for SPI, or something else and using them as bit-bang.
I could put colour into a symbols text, or colour a net label.
After being able to use colour in this way I have found the “mono” colours in eeschema quite limiting. Sure I can label a pin or net, but colour adds that extra dimension. Like going from a BW photocopy of a service manual to a colour version…
Something to add?
(hopefully my image upload works - first time for everything!)
