DT sucks so bad, I stopped using Altium and have laid out 45 pc boards on it. Tragic.

DipTrace isn’t free, and it’s very good software. Certainly at least as good as Eagle, which I would happily be as dismissive about.

If you have the selection arrow tool highlighted, you can hover over the track you’re interested in, and the whole net lights up.

See, simple?

I can't find a way to highlight a schematic net and have it show up on the layout. Is there a way? To get around I highlighted R10 but in the layout it shows a different value than in the schematic.
