pad is locked, but doesn't show in right click menu

#1 Post by kjrowett » 22 Jul 2019, 13:05

HI,

I have a PAD I wish to delete. I right click and select delete. I get an error dialog box, noting the pad is locked. When I select the pad and right click on it, the lock/unlock item isn't present. Any ideas?

The pad essentially became un-connected as part of the QFN package that I deleted (being replaced with a BGA package).

Thanks.

If you move the mouse cursor directly onto the pad, the pad will turn bright red (default color selection) and right-clicking will bring up the shortened Pad Properties context menu.
If you move the mouse cursor close to, but not over the pad, the pad will turn bright green (default color selection) and right-clicking will bring up the more complete context menu featuring the Lock switch.
