    Mark out particular net Reply

    Hello,

    Is there some technique, allowing to mark out particular net: e.g. put all objects, except concerned net, in colorless.

    Thanks in advance.

    Pavel.

    Pavel,

       Not sure if this is what you want...Open your color dialog box  and select the nets button at the top and uncheck the Disable Custom Colors box.  Color the net(s) as needed.  Now you can also highlight a net and select toggle mode to have a more enhanced view.

    Hello Ken,

    Thanks for response. Indeed, I didn't properly understood your approach. Please see the image in attachment. There is layout of a complex board with latest Altera Stratix 5. Thousands of nets ... How, for example, mark-out the net Gxbrxln_10 (please, see on the image). Checking Gxbrxln_10 Net column cell , then selecting particular color changes nothing. I still cannot distinguish this net among thousands others.

    Regards.

    Pavel.

    Here's something to try.  De-highlight all nets then highlight (assign color) the net you want to look at.  Turn on Shadow mode (you can adjust dimming in the Color Dialog->Display window).  This should allow your one net to stand out.

    Good Day, R².

    Sun -Up software has a really cool board Viewer that is much easier to use for viewing board.

    It has all the Nets and Parts listed listed in dialog boxes. Click on a Net and the routing is shown thru the board.

    Hello Randy

    Thanks for response. Sorry, I didn't properly understand your approach.

    First, how to De-highlight all nets ? Inside of the Color window or in Visibility panel ?

    From pull-down menu; Display->Dehighlight, then in the Options tab click on Nets in the "Dehighlight all" section.

    Good Day, R².

    Thanks Randy,

    Works! But I didn't understand Color menu issue. The necessary job is done using only Highlight/De-highlight & Shadow Toggle menus.

    Regards.

    Pavel.
