This program has an input style pretty much similar to
spice, but i belive (at least on my personal opinions)
that an analogue program called multisim have a better
1; i would like to have an option in the settings to
switch between those 2 input styles.
The differences are:
-right clicking with the mouse (except when clicking a
component) will bring up the select mode.
-clicking on a component's pin will automatically pick
up the wire tool.
-to delete/rotate/mirror/deactivate components first
you have to select the comonents to edit, then
activate the function (no different mouse pointer,
changes are applied instantly to the selectied
components)

i would like to have too a button on each document's
label to close it directly without going in the file
menu

    You have those input styles concurrently.

    1) press ESC to switch select mode on/off
    2) select a component then press
    a) Del/Backspace to delete
    b) Ctrl+R to rotate
    c) Ctrl+J/Ctrl+M to mirror
    d) Ctrl+D to deactivate/activate
    3) press Ctrl+W to close a document

    The proposal about changing to wiring-mode when clicking on
    a components pin is worth thinking. :-)

    Thanks, Stefan.

    Hi there!

    Changing to wiring mode when clicking a component pin is now implemented by Michael.

    Stefan.
