    Improve the SHOW command part highlighting in the board editor

    martonmiklosqdev

      When populating boards by hand I usually use the SHOW command with the @ argument.

       

      It works well with a single component:

       

      But there is an use case when I would like to highlight multiple parts (with the same value):

       

      In this case the EAGLE draws one big rectangle, but showing separate rectangles would make more sense like on this gimposhopped image.

       

       

      To not "break backward compatibility" I would recommend to implement this separate rectangle behavior only when each part name is suffixed with a @

      Like SHOW R1 R2 R14 @ should show a single rectangle, while SHOW R1 @ R2 @ R14 @ should show them separately.
