Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command is used to access the Connection Manager dialog. This dialog lists all Net/Pin assignments, grouped under their parent Connection Designators, and includes their system design ID and Net Name, along with their From and To Pin/Net connections. The dialog’s lower Conflict Resolution area will indicate any connection conflicts between the current Multi-board system design and source (child) projects during a design update.

For a high-level look at multi-board design within Altium Designer, see Designing Systems with Multiple Boards.

Access

This command can be accessed from the Multi-board Schematic Editor by:

  • Choosing the Design » Connection Manager command from the main menus.
  • Right-clicking within the design workspace and choosing the Design » Connection Manager command from the context menu.

Use

After launching the command, the Connection Manager dialog will appear. Use the dialog to browse the connections in your logical system design.

The Connection Manager dialog listing will highlight any connections that are considered as in Conflict, or in practice, any imported connection update that does not agree with the system design editor’s existing connectivity data map. Select a highlighted Net entry in the list to see a graphic representation of the Conflict and to access a range of button options that can be used to resolve it.
