Applied Parameters: Show=Net
This command is used to show the jumper connection lines with respect to components associated with a single net. A jumper connection defines an electrical connection between component pads that are not physically routed with primitives on the PCB. Pads that share the same Jumper ID and electrical net tell the system that there is a legitimate, although physically unconnected, connection between them - appearing on the PCB as a curved connection 'wire'.
This command can be accessed from the PCB Editor by:
- Choosing the View » Jumpers » Show Net Jumpers command from the main menus.
- Using the N keyboard shortcut to access a connections pop-up menu then choosing the Show Jumpers » Net command.
After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and you will be prompted to choose an electrical object or connection. Position the cursor over the net (or a pad connected to the net) you wish to show then click or press Enter. All jumper connection lines for components associated to the chosen net will be shown.
Continue showing the jumper connection lines for components associated with other nets or right-click or press Esc to exit.
- If you do not know the location of a pad on the net or one of its connection lines, click in free space and a dialog will pop up prompting for the net name. If you are unsure of the net name, type ? then click OK to launch the Nets Loaded dialog, which lists all loaded nets for the design. The jumper connection lines for the components associated to the net you choose in the dialog will be shown when you click OK.
