Delete a line from BOM

Created: March 25, 2021 | Updated: May 19, 2023

Is there a way to delete a line in the draftsman Bill Of Materials table? I have a test point that showed up there, and I am looking for a way to remove it.

Solution Details

Unfortunately, you cannot directly delete a component line item from BOM, ActiveBOM or Draftsman. You can however have the line not show up in the first place by changing the type of the component to "Standard (NoBOM)" This Component type is defined as: components that possess standard electrical properties, are always synchronized between the schematic and PCB (the footprint, pins/pads and net assignments must all match), and are not included in the BOM. An example is a testpoint component that you want to exclude from the BOM.

You can select the component and change the type from the Properties panel.  Here's more information about the component type:!properties
