Re: How to change related schematic?

When you update layout by components or by RefDes and specify new schematic file, related schematic must be changed automatically.
"By components" refers to hidden IDs. If layout was created from certain schematic file, hidden IDs are the same in both files even if you changed reference designators.

Re: Auto-update of copper pours

Hi Dan,
Auto-update of copper pours is not good idea for large designs because it will work very slowly.
I would suggest to unpour copper pours before editing traces and pour all copper pours when you complete changes.

Re: Gerber export with sheet title blocks included?

Mark,
We do not consider this issue as bug. In most cases, sheet border and title block are not necessary on Gerber files therefore we didn't add them to output files.

Whe you export Gerber files, select destination and Assy layers simultaneously and export two layers to signle file. Do the same for other layers. However, it is not possible to include title block to Ge...

Re: Build in SPICE Simulation

Entry-level simulator is not interested for users, I think. More or less powerfull simulator requires human resourses and a lot of time because this is very complex feature.

Spice simulator is not in to-do list for next version, but we will consider it for future versions.
