Net Name

Modified by Tiffany Cullen on Oct 23, 2019

The Net Name dialog

Summary

The Net Name dialog allows you to quickly jump to a specific Net within the design workspace by specifying the Net's name.

If the target Net is already displayed within the main design window, the cursor will jump to the nearest design object that is a member of that Net. If the Net is out of view, the cursor will be positioned at the nearest design object that is a member of that Net, centered within the main design window (where possible).

Access

The dialog is accessed from:

  • The PCB Editor by clicking Edit » Jump » Net from the main menus.
  • Selecting Assign net from the Actions section of the Polygon Pour Manager.
  • Selecting assign net () button from Net region of the Properties section of the Polygon Pour Manager, then specifying a location in the workspace.
  • Selecting assign net () button from Net region of the Properties section of the Track Properties panel, then specifying a location in the workspace.
  • Selecting assign net () button from Net region of the Properties section of the Via Properties panel, then specifying a location in the workspace.
  • Selecting assign net () button from Net region of the Properties section of the Polygon Pour Properties panel, then specifying a location in the workspace.
You can also use the J, N keyboard sequence directly from within the focused workspace.

Options/Controls
