Can anyone let me know if there is either a shareware database or a "for sale" listing of all the different macros which are being written for Protel99? It would be nice to not have to reinvent the wheel. If anyone has any particular macros written for the purpose of streamlining the PWB design processs (not schematics but board layout), I would be interested. Thanks Mike.
