Moving a Part without the Trace

    by mike4viper » Tue Jun 10, 2014 1:04 pm

I have a board that is laid out and I just received some new requirements. In order to make things fit on the existing board I need to move a couple parts just a little. When I move the part the software wants to move the routed traces as well. Is there a way to just move the part and not the traces? This is a big pain when you only have to move the part a couple millimeters.

If you click and hold the traces move with the part. If you click and release you can move the part without moving traces. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
