    modifying layout made with from capture netlist Reply
    I havent done a lot of work with layout and any type of projects linked to capture.

    im having a very difficult time trying to make a simple modifcation to a layout made from a capture circuit in that i just want to delete a few pins to use the same connector for a new purpose.

    The file seems locked.

    Is there anyway to break this association so i can just delete a few of the through hole components.

    Ive even tried to modify the capture file and create a new net list but i cant find an appropiate footprint that will fit either of the two parts and so i get hung up at that point.

     

     i uploaded the files if it helps

    Under Options/User Preferences/Global Preferences box, make sure the "Allow Editing of Footprints" box is checked.  Then use the pin tool to delete the necessary pins.
