Category:PCB PCB Layout
The connections on a PCB should be identical to its corresponding circuit diagram, but while the circuit diagram is arranged to be readable, the PCB layout is arranged to be functional, so there is rarely any visible correlation.
I haven't used KiCAD but I have used DipTrace for several years now and find it much, much easier to use than Eagle, which I used for several years before that. Eagle is really "old school" software design where you have to select your action before you select the component you're going to work on. DipTrace makes much better use of Windows normal behavior, for example: click on a component and drag and drop to a new location; encircle a group of components and move them all together with drag and drop, etc. Much more intuitive. Much easier to change units, too.
Also, if you've ever tried to create library parts in Eagle, you will pull your hair out. Makes almost no sense. DipTrace is much easier there, too.
DipTrace has a free package with a reasonable number of pads limit that worked for me for the first two years. Then I needed more capability so bought a reasonably priced license to suit my needs.
Granted, all CAD programs have a learning curve but stay away from Eagle if you want to get moving faster on your project.
I strongly recommend KiCAD EDA, it is far better and simpler that Autodesk Eagle in its free (limited) license.
I really like Eagle PCB from Autodesk.
It's free if you're a student (unlimited board size and layers) and otherwise has nice price scaling and a free option for two layer boards that makes it usable for normal people. I used to use Altium Designer but the price is too high (~10k USD) for personal projects.
