Applied Parameters: Object = Room
This command is used to unroute all physical connections associated with a particular room.
This command is accessed from the PCB Editor by choosing the Route » Un-Route » Room command from the main menus.
After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and you will be prompted to choose a room. Position the cursor over the room whose physical connections you wish to unroute then click or press Enter. A dialog will appear asking whether you wish to unroute connections that extend outside of the room. If you click Yes, all track (and vias) that resides in or passes into/out of the room will be removed and replaced by the logical connections. If you click No, only the pad-to-pad connections that are contained wholly inside the room will be unrouted.
Continue unrouting the physical connections associated with other rooms or right-click or press Esc to exit.
- Where track passes outside of the boundaries of the room, the track is unrouted from a component pad in the room to the next destination pad along the track, outside of the room. Track on the other side of this destination pad will remain routed.
- If any track or via primitives are locked, a confirmation dialog will appear asking whether you want to allow the unroute of locked primitives. If you select No, only track and via primitives that are not locked will be unrouted.
