Annoying things about Upverter


#1

The idea of this post is not to rant about the software but to provide feedback to the team so they can improve the application :slight_smile:

I’ve completed my first schematic with Upverter and soon will start the layout. Some things that bothered me while drawing the schematic that I would like to see improved:

  • You are forced to give the net a name when this has 3 branches
  • You cannot have a net connection with 4 branches to the same point, making it look untidy
  • When you rotate a component from horizontal to vertical, the refdes and value go to an odd position and need to be arranged manually
  • Sometimes when you move a net, it changes other section of the net so you cannot make the schematic look like you want to
  • When looking for components there is no parametric search, also there is no way to know its current status in DigiKey or Mouser
  • Most DigiKey part numbers do not appear when you see the online BOM
  • You cannot put in the schematic basic shapes such as rectangles and circles
  • You cannot change the size of the text added to the schematic

That’s all for now, I will update when I create the PCB.

Thank you
