Problem snapping wires to pinouts
5113 10
info 7 years ago
Sometimes I create wires connections in schematics correct, sometimes incorrect. The point that I believe I do something wrong, is that the wires I believe should remain connected to the parts I attached them to, however after whole schematics is done, I try to move with some parts, and all wires remain on its original positions, and my electronical part is moving on the canvas without wires attached to it....but on some parts I have noticed It did some connections correct, ...Am I doing something not right, or is the program misbehaving.....maybe I did not discovered some sort of snap-wire-to-the-el.part feature (and keep it attached to the el. part) .Please help. Thank you. Jozef

Hi Jozef, Please note that *rubber banding* in EasyEDA is not perfect yet so you may see some wires being dragged with a component and some not. First question: what do you see if you do Ctrl+D to run the schematic Design Manager? This will clearly show if you have any wires that are not connected (try it in a simple test schematic first like this: <https://easyeda.com/editor#id=GWsmEVd7p|LJCUO6oGA>) Second question: are you sure that you have not accidentally turned **Snap to Grid** off by typing **G**? If **Snap to grid** is off or wires have been drawn with it off and then snap to grid turned back on again, your wires may not be properly connected. Sadly , it is almost impossible to correct this error because you do not know exactly how much to move the wire ends or the pins to move them exactly back onto the grid. :( If you are using symbols that you have drawn yourself then please check this: <https://easyeda.com/bbs_view_902.htm> Can you post a public version of the schematic you are having a problem with so we can see what might be going on?

Hi, Make sure your snap size in the right number. 5 10 15 20 and so on. If you change to 1 2 3, you will get problems like you told. We should give some warn later. Thanks.

Hi, Thanks for advices. The snap to grid I have discovered only after your comments, so I dont think I messed with it, but....File Public : I have found a share button, but it shows message that I can do only with public....which settings I could not find....CTRL+D : I see most of the pins have red cross icon, only few have a list icon.....however doesnt matter if it has list icon, or no, some of the wires no matter what icon have, are not rubber band to the pins....This rubber band could be not important, when I will not need to create a PCB from the schematics...then in PCB I see only those wires which are rubber banded.....that is my main problem....DO you have any steps, how to fix the wires which are not correct?.....I hope there is another solution than delete and draw a all wires again..? Anyway nice piece of software, after polishing and solving few things It will be nice :-) Kind regards. Jozef

Dillon, regarding this: "Hi, Make sure your snap size in the right number. 5 10 15 20 and so on. If you change to 1 2 3, you will get problems like you told. We should give some warn later. Thanks. " I believe we need to address this workflow, sooner than later, as I mentioned in another thread. I'll reach out.

> sooner than later You are right, but we don't know how to make most of the users happy, some one would like flexible, They would like to draw ployline ,arc in un snap. but they will forget to change snap type when place a component or draw a wire. If we keep the snap size to 10, everything is OK. I think the users should make some mistakes before they remember the **Snap** . :)

HI, thanks for advices, I appreciate your help. Today I opened the project, and seems 90% of the wires are rubber band, only few are not...funny for me, because I dont remember any changes I did which could make this happend...I dont understand why anybody could want to draw a wires between several pins, and if moved, why would I not to make them move with my pins accordingly?...I hope this feature is helpfull at least for somebody... Anyway any idea how to find a D-SUB connector 26pin in 3 rows? ...commonly known as VGA connector...I tried everything....Many thanks, jozef

Um, Jozef, but a VGA connector is a 15 pin dsub not a 26 pin. :) Now, EasyEDA is *very* good at importing KiCad libraries... So you can try searching the KiCad site for library locations or just Google something like **Kicad vga**. I turned up a schematic symbol here: <http://projects.qi-hardware.com/index.php/p/kicad-libs/source/tree/master/components/vga.lib> You can download that to your local machine and then do: **Document > Import > Kicad lib/module > Choose file and select the downloaded vga.lib file. That will import the schematic symbol. Or try: <http://library.oshec.org/> and look for **CON-SUBD** which will turn up both schematic symbol libs and PCB footprint modules. <http://library.oshec.org/converted/con-subd.lib> <http://library.oshec.org/converted/con-subd.mod> (Once imported into EE, look for conn-subd-hd parts: hd = high density) Another place to look is: <http://www.kicadlib.org/> This all comes with the usual warning that you *must* check all symbols and footprints carefully before you place your PCB order! **:)** Andy

Hi, Thank you. sorry, with my questions I messed up 2 connectors I was looking for, VGA -15pin I got, but the 26p. still no chance even on the sites U posted, connector I am looking for : https://www.accesscomms.com.au/reference/dsub/da26.htm In the mean time I have found a problem why the rubber banding is not working sometimes. When double click on hand tool (drag) it seems to change pointer to cursor, but as well changes the rubber banding to no snapping. when U click only 1x then, then it returns back to rubber banding. Hope this helps. regards

You'll find PCB footprints for these: con-subd-hdf25h con-subd-hdf25v con-subd-hdm25f con-subd-hdm25v where f = female m = male h = horizontal v = vertical There were no surface mount versions in the library I imported last night but it would not be too hard to edit the through hole versions to SM pads. I have not been able to import the .lib file yet. It's not clear if that is because there's a problem with the file or with the way EasyEDA is importing it: we are investigating that. I think you will have to start with a DB25 symbol from the SparkFun Libs and edit it to add an extra pin and maybe move the pins around. If you save your version with a new name then it will be your contribution to the EasyEDA libraries! You have made a good point about rubber banding and I understand your issue now! As I said earlier, rubber banding is not perfect in EasyEDA yet. There are instances where if you select a group or even a single component and move it, it will rubber band the wire connected to it but in doing so, the wire then disconnects from another one going to it form a component nearby. This is further complicated by the fact that the **Grab** function from the Drawing Toolbar is actually a **Move** function: it does not invoke the rubber band function. If you left-click on the **Grab** icon, the cursor changes to an open hand. If you then place that over an object and then left-click on that object, it changes to a closed hand and then moves the object around but with no rubber banding. Left-clicking again releases the object and the cursor goes back to an open hand. Right-clicking exits the **Grab** function. Simply left-click-and-hold on an object selects it. Moving the cursor then drags the object and rubber bands any wires connected to it's pins. Rubber banding works pretty much as you might expect then. Left-click-and-right-drag selects anything inside the selection rectangle. Left-click-and-hold on those selected items then drags them with rubber banding but the results are a little more unpredictable. Selecting only components rubber bands OK but selecting components and wires can have some unexpected results. Left-click-and-left-drag selects anything inside - and intersected by - the selection rectangle. Left-click-and-hold on those selected items then drags them with rubber banding but because this will usually include wires, this can have some unexpected results. This is something else we must add to our To Do list. :)
