Loading and saving FileSystem based Design Projects;
Floating bars are properly redraw when moved;
Placing schematics elements (wire, nets, etc)
What does not
Loading and saving Database files (including Design projects and schematic/PCB libraries) still does not work.
What was not tested
Everything not mentioned was not tested.
