Dynamic line sizes in EMPOWER

There are some competing products to Genesys that have a somewhat more functional "layout" mode for EM simulation and/or actual circuit manufacture: Entities such as microstrip lines can be routed such as one would in a PCB layout package (changing the length, adding corners with mitering, etc.), and such changes are propagated back to the schematic element representing that line so that simulation results are updated as well.

As far as I've been able to tell in Genesys, if you want to change a microstrip line's length, the only way to do it is to change its properties to explicitly set the new length; there's no "dynamic" model available.

It's be a great new feature if Genesys were to add this function.
