The procedure for checking the schematic allows to automatically detect the presence of any errors. Electrical errors are reported, such as two output pins connected to each other, as well as drawing errors, such as the duplication of references or the existence of unconnected wires.


The set of rules used for drawing checking and generating the netlist can be set in the Schematic tab in the Project properties dialog box. The dialog can be activated by selecting the command Settings » Project Properties or by using the key combination CTRL+ALT+P.

Errors are listed in a report window. Each line describes an error or a warning message. Right-clicking inside the report window opens a menu with a few commands.

To verify the entire project

  1. Choose the command Schematic » Electrical Rules Check or click on the tool in the toolbar.
