Title: How to select multiple pads easily
Post by: ali_asadzadeh on December 09, 2018, 03:08:35 pm
Hi,
I want to select some pads like dragging a rectangle to select them and use Interactively route multiple connections, But It seems the selection box does not allow me, and I should select all the pins one by one, do we have something in aid?

If you want to avoid the popup box thingy, lock the component (right-click on it, or set its property any other way).

Unfortunately the built-in select won't do non-free pads.  You could query it, maybe even write a script to make a mouse-driven InRegion query command that's more powerful than select, but yeah, more effort to figure it out. :-//

Try to keep the Ctrl-Key pressed while dragging the rectangle.  ;)

Edit > Select > Toggle Selection

now you can click on each pad w/o shift/crtl key
