Hi all,

I'm a die-hard p98 user and have just starting to kick the tires of p99se.
>From the fiddling around I've done so far I've come across a few minor
items that I hope somebody could help me out with:

(1)   In the PCB editor, how can I change the color for the "show pads" and
"show nets".   I'm using darkish colors for pads, vias, and holes and the
black letters are hard to see.    It would be nice to have them either
black or white, nothing too fancy.   In P98 they are white.    I fully
realize that I can change my color scheme (pads vias etc) to get around the
problem or just squint alot.

(2)  It seems that I need to have all of my library files in seperate
databases and then point to these lib-db's from my project db.   This was
the only way I could figure out how to do it anyways.    Quite a departure
from the p98 way.    One possiblity is to have a seperate db for each lib
file.   Another is to group them together in fewer db's.    Did I do this
correctly or is there an "easier" way.

(3) It seems that all of the schematic templates also need to be in there
own db file (a single db?).    I think the way it works is if you set that
file as the "default" in a project db at some point in time then all future
projects will have those templates available, even after you close and
reboot.   Did I get it right?    I found this to be pretty confusing a
first and was not exactly sure what was happening.

Thanks for any help!
Dave Lewis
