No connects

Is there a way of marking non-used or no-connect pins so that you don't get an error when running the design rule check?

Hi,
Please open "Verification/ Electrical Rule Setup" from main menu in Schematic. Unselect "Not Connected" option from list of rules. After that, you won't get ERC errors if there are non-used or non-connected pins in your schematic.

Yes, this will work but it will also obscure real errors and that makes the error check close to worthless.

Well, don't unselect this option in that case. You can right click on pins in schematic and set "Not Connected" option for them.
