Shortcuts to the most frequently used components

#1 Post by Daniel » 17 Nov 2022, 13:40

Is there any possibility to create a buttons or some shortcuts (in toolbar?) to the most frequently used components (e.g. GND, POWER, TestPoints, NetPorts) like as it is standard in most EDA programs?

I don't know of a way to assign a hot key to a specific component. What I did is create a custom component library of my most used power, common, return, etc. symbols. I did the same for test points and net ports. One click to select the library and one more click to select the symbol. When I start a schematic I usually know what type of power/returns will be used so I place each symbol I need in the schematic along with any other ports I think I need. From then on it is cut and paste each time they are reused (on the same schematic).

I also created a similar system with my own component library from my most frequently used components! But I have it test and I'm finalizing it!
