  • Mouse Hover

    • Highlight the Net When Hovering Over the Net: When the mouse hovers on a certain wire, pad, and pores, the wires, pads, and pores of the entire network are highlighted.
    • Highlight Object While Cursor Hover Object: When the mouse hovers at a certain object, Gao Liang is high. At this time, holding the object in the mouse selection will be the same as the object of Gao Liang.
    • Display Object Property While Cursor Hover Object: When the mouse hovers at a certain object, some attribute information of the object is displayed.

  • Route
    • Prefer Place Blind/Burried Via while Change Layer on Routing: When the pores are placed in the wiring switching layer, set the perforated or blinded holes for priority.
    • Auto Change Layer While Routing Vias: After turning on, add holes during the wiring process and automatically switch to other layers at the same time.
    • Automatic fan-out when end of routing: After turning on, when the chip pin wiring is turned on, it is given a distance from the pad.
    • Terminate Routing Automatically: After clicking the other map of the same network, the wiring is ended, that is, the wiring is over.
    • Assign Net for Free Track: When drawing a network -free wire, it will automatically allocate a new network for the free wire and the connected pads after ending the wiring.
    • Add Teardrop Automatically: Draw a wire, drag a wire, pad, and a hole, and automatically add tears.
  • Drag/Move
    • Ctrl drag to copy: Press and hold the ctrl key to drag the object, you can copy the new object。
    • Cursor snaps to center while dragging pads/vias: Drag the pads/perforated, and the cursor automatically adsorb to the center and follow the mouse.
    • Cursor snaps to origin while dragging footprints: Drag the package, automatically adsorb the cursor to the heart and follow the mouse.
    • Align in adjacent footprint/pads when mobile footprint/pads: Drag the packaging/pad, if there are other pads and packaging next to it, it will automatically adsorb to the position of the alignment boundary when moving to its boundary.
  • Move the footprint, wire’s following way: When moving the device, the wire follow -up method is set.
  • Move the Via, wire’s following way: When moving the holes, the wire follow -up method is set.
  • Other

Add commonly used fonts

Support setting your own commonly used fonts.These fonts need to be installed on the local computer before being called by the editor, otherwise the editor will automatically use the default font provided by the browser for rendering.

Add custom font:
1) First install the fonts you need in the local computer. If you already have fonts, you can ignore this step.

2) Taking the Windows system as an example, find the font settings in the system settings and get the font name.You need to get the accurate display name, which cannot be the file name of the font file.

3) Add a font according to the font name.

图 17

4) This font can be seen in the text font switching of the schematic or PCB. At this time, the font switching can be performed.

The fonts that are added can be used by schematic diagrams, panels, PCB, etc.
