I drew out out my board size, placed and locked down some large footprints stragetically and tried the auto component placement procedure. After some tries wit size adjustment and the population not looking too dense, I tried auto-route for the nets. There are a few it could not complete. To help the auto-procedure along, I plan to alter some SMD resistor pads to have the same hole size as a via. However, I did not lock down all of the footprints. How do I remove all of the nets globally?

Great and thank you. I thought I saw something like that earlier in my quest to develop this board.
