Summary

The Choose Via Sizes dialog allows you to select a via from the list of vias used on the current PCB board. The dialog displays the diameter and hole size of the vias.

Access

The dialog is accessed in the PCB editor by pressing Shift+V while interactively routing (Route » Interactive Routing).

In order to use the dialog to custom define via sizes, ensure the Via Size Mode option under the Interactive Routing Width Sources region of the PCB Editor - Interactive Routing page of the Preferences dialog is set to User Choice

Options/Controls

Select a Via in the left-hand pane of the dialog to view the sizes for that Via. When you select a Via, the right side of the dialog displays information for the selected Via.

  • Diameters - this information is for viewing only in the dialog. It allows you to see whether the Via's diameter is set to Simple (Via hole size and diameter are the same through all layers), Top-Middle-Bottom (different Hole Size and Diameters can be set at Top Layer, Middle Layer and Bottom Layer), or Full Stack (different Hole Size and Diameters can be edited at each layer, including all signal layers and planes).
  • Hole Size - displays the hole size (the inner diameter) of the Via.
  • Diameter - displays the outer diameter of the Via. 
The list of vias used on the board is available on the Pad & Via Templates mode of the PCB panel.
