The Net Name dialogThe Net Name dialog


The Net Name dialog allows you to quickly jump to a specific Net within the design space 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).


The dialog is accessed from the PCB Editor by clicking Edit » Jump » Net from the main menus.

You can also use the J, N keyboard sequence directly from within the focused design space.
