    Eagle CAD bug?

    I've been using Eagle light in Ubuntu lately. I have also used it in MS windows.

    Overall it works the same except for one thing. The [Alt] key for placing tracks, vias etc at half grid spacings doesn't seem to work properly. Pressing the [Alt] key allows the item to hover at half grid spacings but I can't actually place it by clicking the left mouse button.

    Is this problem unique to my PC or is this a bug which others are also experiencing?

    I didn't notice until I read your message, but it seemes to be a problem on my PC too. A workaround that works for me is to press [Ctrl] key alog with [Alt] key.

    [Ctrl]+[Alt] is good enough for me!

    Much faster than going back and forth between grid spacing settings.

    Thanks htoerrin.
