I’m aware of the Array function. I’ve always found it to be somewhat pointless, because it creates new components and does not link those components to the schematic. (although I’m learning more about update PCB from schematic).
What about objects that come from a schematic, and are already on the board? I guess if the schematic numbered the components in order, maybe I could start with n=1 component and then array the 4 copies of it assuming that the numbers will count up. It’s messy.
Thank you for your time. I don’t think that the array function is the answer.
I guess you haven’t looked into it enough… You could, for starters, open the Array panel and see at least part of the answer.
The other part of answer (re Schematic) well, even if there was an Array to do what you want, you’d still need to individually Wire them in schematic - I can’t think of any App that can wire circuit without some fore-knowledge of what gets hooked up to what… Perhaps I’ve grown too old for modern times…
If they’re already on the PCB, just use the Distribute/Align tool (and, re-number tool)
