    Defining Trace Width Behavior Reply
    Is it possible to set some kind of rule or option that when I begin a new trace from an existing trace, that the width is naturally the width of the existing trace, instead of the last width I typed into the options panel?

    You just need to clear the Line Width override (Blue text in the Line width field) under the Options tab.  

    While in Add Connect click on the Line Width pulldown under the Options tab and select Constraint and it will revert back to the default traces width for new traces and adapt to the trace width of existing traces when selected.

    Hope this helps,
    Mike Catrambone

    That does it, I figured there was something simple. Thanks Mike
