  • From the PCB panel, select Nets view from the drop-down. In the Primitives section, double-click on a primitive, opening the Properties panel of the given object. Select Net under the Properties drop-down, then Nodes under the Net drop-down.
  • Right-click over a placed design object, then select Net Actions » Properties from the context menu.
  • From the Via Properties panel, select the Net hyperlink within the Definition region to enter the Net mode of the Properties panel, then click the Nodes hyperlink.

Options/Controls

Properties 

  • Net Name - rename the net, if desired.
  • Connection Color - click to open the Choose Color dialog to choose a connection color for the specified net. This net color can also be applied to the routed net, when the Net Color Override feature is enabled (press F5).
  • Hide Connections - enable to hide connection wires.
  • Hide Jumpers - enable to to hide jumpers or short connections between routed segments.
  • Remove Loops - enable to automatically remove any redundant loops that are part of this net.

Pins in Other Nets

This is a list of all the pins on the PCB. Pins that are currently assigned to a net include their net name in brackets. Select the pins you wish to add to the net being edited. Use the Shift and Ctrl keys to select multiple pins. Use the control buttons to move selected pins into the current net list or right-click to remove selected pins from the list using the context menu.

Buttons

  •  - use to add all Pins in Other Nets to Pins in This Net
  •  - use to add the selected Pins in Other Nets to Pins in This Net. Use the Shift and Ctrl keys to select multiple pins.
  •  - use to move all Pins in This Net to Pins in Other Nets.
  •  - use to move the selected Pins in This Net to Pins in Other Nets. Use the Shift and Ctrl keys to select multiple pins.

After moving a pin from the Pins in Other Nets list to Pins in This Net list, you may right-click on the moved pin and select the Remove One command to move it back to the Pins in Other Nets list.

Pins in This Net

Lists all pins in this net. Select the pins you wish to remove from this net. Use the Shift and Ctrl keys to select multiple pins. Use the control buttons to move selected pins out of the current net list or right-click and use the context menu to remove selected pins.

Current Interactive Routing Settings

Grid

The grid region lists any current settings for interactive routing.

  • Track Width - lists the track width field of the current interactive routing settings, which is editable and may be changed to your preference and/or design requirements.
  • Name - lists the Current Routing, Layer Stack Reference, and Absolute Layer.
  • Index - lists the index number.

Diagram

  • Via Hole Size - this represents the current via hole size's user choice value that is stored in the net. This dialog provides a way to modify the current values for the current interactive routing settings. If the values are zero, the user choice values are not being sourced from this dialog and the last used value for this board will be used.
  • Via Diameter - this represents the current via size's user choice value that is stored in this net. This dialog provides a way to modify the current values for the current interactive routing settings. If the values are zero, the user choice values are not being sourced from this dialog and the last used value for this board will be used.
  • All Widths - this is the current routing and their layer reference values that represent the current user choice values that are stored in the net. It provides a way to modify the current values for the current interactive routing settings. If the values are zero, the user choice values are not being sourced from this dialog and the last used value for this board will be used.
  • Layers in Layer-Stack only - enable to apply the via parameters for layers in the layer-stack only.
