I understand your gripes about Protel documentation and bug reporting but I too have found 'similar' issues with most other packages. This newsgroup makes the interface to Protel much less painful and it supplies the best technical support that I have found anywhere for any CAD package, no one can compare to the gang providing free advice and technical support on this newsgroup 24-7.
