Newb: How do I connect wires in schematic view?

memotick 6 years, 2 months ago

I've searched all over and can't find out how to connect the pins from three different parts to a "wire dot" on a schematic.

 

Where should I be looking?

 

Thanks

Hi Memotick,

Draw a wire from any one pin to one of the others (click and drag from one pin to another to drag out the wire and connect it). Now double-click or drag that new wire somewhere near the center to create a bendpoint. Now drag a wire from the third pin to the bendpoint.

Cheers,

That's it!  Thanks Jonathan

You can also draw a wire from a bendpoint by using the alt-key. Take a look at "Tips and Tricks" under the help menu.
