Board Editor

To launch the schematic editor click on “Board” in the project manager.

Planes

For adding planes, first draw a polygon of the desired shape in a copper layer. Then use the “Add plane” tool to assign it a plane. Planes with lower priority will get filled first.

Vias

Before placing a via, create a default rule for vias in the “Rules” window and assign it the desired padstack.

Diffpairs

To create a diffpair see Schematic Diffpairs . Before routing a diffpair, create a diffpair rule specifying track width and gap. To route a diffpair, use the “Route diff. pair” tool.
