The Point to Point Router Options dialog
This dialog provides options for the Auto Wire mode when in object placement mode. In the Auto Wire placement mode, the path of the route will be the most efficient possible while avoiding existing placed objects on the sheet.
When placing a wire or signal harness, press Shift+Spacebar to rotate through placement modes. After entering the Auto Wire placement mode, press Tab.
Time Out After (s) - the time out setting prevents spending an indefinite amount of time trying to calculate a path. Enter the desired number of seconds; the default is 3.
Avoid cutting wires - use to avoid running new wire over many existing wires. At the L end of the scale, the wire placement will not discriminate against existing wires. At the H end of the scale, the wire placement will avoid existing wires. Drag the marker from one end of the scale to the other or to any desired location in-between.
