Schematic Design suggested enhancement

Way back in the time of dinosaurs, PCB123 Schematic Capture had a neat feature where you could create a small database of often used components accessible from a toolbar initially on the right edge of the Schematic Capture window. For example, most of us end up using 0.1 or 0.01 uF decoupling caps o...

Re: Removing wires

Whoops! Open mouth, insert foot. My apologies to Sal! I misunderstood his instructions. One goes to Layout, then to the component then right click on the _PIN_ desired, which brings up a menu with the choice to disconnect the pin from the net. This then reverse propagates to the Schematic layout and...

5.1 quirks and notes

Thought I would chime in with some observations and gotchas before they bite someone else. First, a reminder (I guess I forgot this) that TH pads on Layout appear on the Mechanical Layer while surface mount pads appear on either Top or Bottom Layer. Through me for a loop as I often shut down the Mec...

Re: Removing wires

This one still seems to be with us. But now, with 5.1, Sal's suggestion does not seem to work. In case I didn't understand, Sal, can you explain exactly what you meant?

Regenerate Mechanical Layer

After putzing around for nearly half an hour trying to figure out how to regenerate the Mechanical Layer (after changing board dimensions manually), thought I would pass along that simply saving the design regenerates this layer automatically(at least it updated the new board dimensions).

"Digikey" Library

Sometime ago, I believe there was some discussion about getting a new library that would incorporate MANY more ic's from Digikey with stock availability. This would certainly make designing less tedious as many of the chips in present libraries (at least last time I checked) are simply not available...

Symbol Original Name

I note on the .BOM a column titled Original Name. I had not noticed when modifying my schematic that apparently an R is prefixed to the symbol name under some conditions. Can anyone explain when the R is prefixed (under what conditions)?

Removing wires

How do you select a wire between two closely adjacent pins on a component? Seems like I just snap back and forth to each pin without ever selecting the wire. I find I have to remove and reinstall such a component to delete wires. Is there something I am missing?

Grid Lines don't appear

I setup Preferences for showing grid lines, but they don't seem to appear. What am I doing wrong?

Furthermore, grid settings don't seem to work in the schematic. That is, the grid does not seem to change. Again, what am I doing wrong?
