Tony,
Thanks for the info  you are probably right about your methods for netlist and text 
changes. 
I am not too smart, I am basically a dumbarsh and  If I have to type that much crap in 
then apparently I dont need to change the text, nor do I need to view my nets. I will 
find another way to design.  That would be intolerable to turn nets on and off like 
that. Especially since I may have a dozen or more classes.    There is no way I am 
going to design writing coded messages to my pcb design. I might as well use ACAD for 
design.  I am trying to get away from keystrokes and trying to get this program to 
respond to my thought patterns (being silly now).   This is not one of DXP's or  2004s 
strong points
