I am a new user of orcadpcb and would like to know if it is possible to minimize the length of the ratsnest during the placement of a component and not after it is placed.
place the component near to near so you can reduce the ratsnets
Yes, but this happens only after the component has been released during the movement ratnest is not updated.
The tools don't work this way. The ratsnest is not dynamic. It will only update once you place the part down. You could assign a FUNCKEY to place the part down and pick it back up again which will update the ratsnest connections. Edit your env file to include
funckey " " "pick_to_grid -cursor;pick_to_grid -cursor"
This uses the spacebar to put the part down then pick it up again.
Thank you for your answer.I'm surprised.... even the cheaper cads have this function
