Can't drag and drop any net ports components

#1 Post by jreese » 16 May 2022, 15:00

Hi,
For some reason I can't drag and drop any Net Ports components such as 5V or GND while in the PCB Layout program. Everything else will drag and drop. It also works in Schematic layout fine.
Is this by design?

....If I try the 5v and gnd through the "Part Placement" window I get the error:
"selected component doesn't have attached pattern!"

Net Ports are special type of components for Schematic only. They don't have attached patterns and thus don't have implementation in PCB Layout. Instead netports, you can use different components (connectors for example) in PCB Layout.
