    Hi all,

    Here it goes.

    I use Eagle layout editor 4.

    I have created a schematic and I switch the board where I place the
    components. I start the autorouter, everything works fine but let's say
    that I realise that the design would benefit from moving one component
    to another location. Moving the component is no drama but my problem is
    that I can't figure out how to start the autorouter with the new

    Advice how to do this is very much appreciated.

    Publish what you find. The only thing I've been able to do is unroute
    everything and start over. Very annoying when 95% of it's good and you
    only need to tweek one thing. The new route may be totally different
    and much worse overall.

    Return address is VALID.

    Well, I don't know what the mystery is. If routing is not complete
    and you still have airwires, you restart the autorouter the same way
    you started it the first time. If there are no airwires, rip up
    some traces with the yellow rip-up icon tool to create some, then
    restart autoroute. Draw a box over the moved component with the
    group tool, then click rip-up, and right-click to unroute all of the
    grouped connections. Or rip up everything to start from scratch.
    Or whatever you want.
