Applied Parameters: Hide=Net

Summary

This command is used to hide the jumper connection lines with respect to components associated with a single net. A jumper connection defines an electrical connection between component pads that are not physically routed with primitives on the PCB. Pads that share the same Jumper ID and electrical net tell the system that there is a legitimate, although physically unconnected, connection between them - appearing on the PCB as a curved connection 'wire'.

Access

This command can be accessed from the PCB Editor by:

  • Choosing the View » Jumpers » Hide Net Jumpers command from the main menus.
  • Using the N keyboard shortcut to access a connections pop-up menu then choosing the Hide Jumpers » Net command.

Use

After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and you will be prompted to choose an electrical object or connection. Position the cursor over the net (or a pad connected to the net) you wish to hide and click or press Enter. All jumper connection lines for components associated to the chosen net will be hidden.

Continue hiding the jumper connection lines for components associated with other nets or right-click or press Esc to exit.

Tips

  1. If you do not know the location of a pad on the net or one of its connection lines, click in free space and a dialog will pop up, prompting for the net name. If you are unsure of the net name, type ? then click OK to launch the Nets Loaded dialog, which lists all loaded nets for the design. The jumper connection lines for the components associated to the net you choose in the dialog will be hidden when you click OK.


Applied Parameters: Hide=ComponentJumpers

Summary

This command is used to hide the jumper connection lines for a particular component. A jumper connection defines an electrical connection between component pads that are not physically routed with primitives on the PCB. Pads that share the same Jumper ID and electrical net tell the system that there is a legitimate, although physically unconnected, connection between them - appearing on the PCB as a curved connection 'wire'.

Access

This command can be accessed from the PCB Editor by:

  • Choosing the View » Jumpers » Hide Component Jumpers command from the main menus.
  • Using the N keyboard shortcut to access a connections pop-up menu, then choosing the Hide Jumpers » On Component command.

Use

After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and you will be prompted to choose a component. Position the cursor over the component whose associated jumper connection lines you wish to hide then click or press Enter. The jumper connection lines for that component will be hidden.

Continue hiding jumper connection lines associated with other components or right-click or press Esc to exit.

Tips

  1. If you do not know the location of a component, click in free space and a dialog will pop up, prompting for the component's designator. If you are unsure of the designator, type ? then click OK to launch the Components Placed dialog, which lists all components in the design. The jumper connection lines for the component you choose in the dialog will be hidden when you click OK.


Applied Parameters: Hide=All

Summary

This command is used to hide all jumper connection lines in the design. A jumper connection defines an electrical connection between component pads that are not physically routed with primitives on the PCB. Pads that share the same Jumper ID and electrical net tell the system that there is a legitimate, although physically unconnected, connection between them - appearing on the PCB as a curved connection 'wire'.

Access

This command can be accessed from the PCB Editor by:

  • Choosing the View » Jumpers » Hide All Jumpers command from the main menus.
  • Using the N keyboard shortcut to access a connections pop-up menu,then choosing the Hide Jumpers » All command.

Use

After launching the command, the jumper connection lines associated with any and all components in the design will be hidden.
