Title: Cut connections in schematic?
Post by: theatrical scene on January 15, 2019, 02:13:24 am
I was wondering if there was a method to draw a line which would cut the connections on a schematic in two segments (crude ascii representation: ----- to ----   ----)? My motivation was to cut multiple lines at the same time without individually going in and deleting the connection segments and re-wiring as necessary.

If you place a component on a wire such that it makes connections with two points on the wire, the wire segment between those two points will be deleted.  Think of adding a series resistor to a wire, you just drop the resistor onto the wire and the resistor winds up in series with the connection.  So you could just place a resistor (or whatever) on each of the wires you want to cut, and then remove it.
