------------------------------------------------------

Problem (see attached image): After clicking the "Highlight Net" button, your cursor should snap to traces (like the new interactive router does while routing) in order to be able to select them. In the attached image, however, you can see that the trace is impossible to click at this grid size.

Solution: Make the cursor snap to traces when the "Highlight Net" tool is selected.

Temporary Work-around: simply make the grid size small enough you can click on the trace.
