Sorry, this would not work. If you mean to follow the path from all net1 
nodes to all net2 nodes, then it would just highlight all objects of both 
nets. If you mean picking one net1 node and net2 node pair randomly, it 
would show only one short, while there may be multiple.

This is a simpler version of the 'heat up the net' idea proposed by Joshua 
Lansford. If you are interested in details you could read back, I've 
modelled what would happen using multiple different examples.

Regards,

Tibor
