I updated to the most recent version 5.1.9 a while ago. Now that I am in the process of layouting I was extremely irritated by the rats nest behavior. I expected the local rats nest to show as soon as I move a component. Placing components without that function is more than just a pain. It literally makes KiCADs Pcbnew tool useless in my opinion. So I am a bit puzzled on why this seems to be an accepted state. I see that in “legacy toolset” it still is working. But since this toolset is unusable due to its performance I am stuck.
How are users placing their components these days? Is there a setting that I am missing? Is there no semi-professional user base that rely on efficiency? I mean using the local rats nest function is completely out of the question as so many klicks are needed.
What am I missing here?
