Component autoplacement into PCB!

I'm not sure when this feature was introduced but a first attempt at PCB component autoplacement now operates after doing a multiple component selection in the schematic followed by a CTRL+SHIFT+X Cross-Probe-and-Place. This is the board shortly after the initial Create PCB: ![image.png](// I then selected a collection of components in the schematic (sorry but it's private so I'm not going to show that) and did CTRL+SHIFT+X Cross-Probe-and-Place and this is how the components were distributed: ![image.png](// which is pretty much exactly as they are laid out in the schematic. Now, that may not be much like they will end up being placed as it's around two quad-device packages in the upper right that all the ratlines go to but it's a far easier task to lay them out from this arrangement that from the alphanumerical prefix ordered columns that they get pulled into the PCB in the first place. * To do a whole board do CTRL+A (Select All) then do CTRL+SHIFT+X. * Your PCB must have been saved before this will work. Well done EasyEDA, this is a big step forward to help speed up PCB layout. Big thank you!

Is this function still working? Because on my Computer (MacOS, Chrome Browser) it did not work... I tried CTRL+SHIFT+X and CMD+SHIFT+X. Neither of them worked. Thanks for help!

@lehmann.timon, Working fine for me. 1. Create the schematic; 2. Save the Schematic; 3. Do all the Essential Checks;  4. Do **Convert to PCB...**;  5. Save the PCB;  6. Select a bunch of symbols in the schematic; 7. Do **CTRL+SHIFT+X**;  8. The view will switch to the PCB and the footprints assigned to the selected symbols will highlight, then, as soon as you move the mouse, will distribute as they are in the schematic and then drag around with the mouse until you click to place them s a block.

Same issue for me. Does not work on OS-X. Can you add this in the menu perhaps?
