Benefits and Description
When entering the route menu, cabling design automatically checks for logical information and whether components are designated. Undesignated components temporarily pause the routing tool so you can designate the components. When the designation is complete, the route tool resumes and you can continue routing.
If logical information does not exist during the routing and selection of a Csys which has not been designated, the routing temporarily pauses so you can designate the selected component and then continue routing.
With designating on the fly, usability is improved because you no longer have to cancel the route command.
