Noob question, so apologies in advance. I have a schematic that has an amplifier-A/D input that terminates at a jack connector on the board edge. Also on the schematic I have the load cell assembly drawn that terminates in a mating plug connector. When I run an ERC on the schematic it, quite understandably, gives a pair of errors for each wire across the plug-jack pair. All pins on the connectors are set to passive.
These errors can be eliminated by joining the connectors with shorting wires. However, this is a bit “dangerous” because if I forget to remove them it will be a pain.
What is the best way to show this plug-jack pair? Can they be show in their mated position some way? Or should I just set the connected device pins to “passive” (which feels like a kludge)?
I realize this is a trivial problem given the workarounds, but if I am going to learn KiCad I want to learn the correct or customary way to do things.
