PSoC Designer 5.3 Preview #1 - Auto-Routing!

(With Designer 5.3 just a month away, we've decided to start previewing the new features here on the PSoC Designer Blog (also displayed on the Designer Start Page). Every few days we'll tell you about another of the many new features in Designer 5.3. First up? Auto-routing!)

Tired of clicking on one interconnect row after another, trying to get all your signals to where they need to go? With Designer 5.3, you're done with that! Just shift+click on a block port and a number of glowing, golden lines will show you all the possible destinations. A second click on one of those highlighted locations and you're done! This works on analog routes as well as digital routes, block-to-block or block-to-pin. This will make Designer quicker for your new engineers to learn, and make life easier for the veteran users.

A final note: If you like the control of personally routing your signals, have no fear! We haven't removed any of the existing manual routing features.

I was hopping for something like this. This will be a time saver.
