Tip: Representing Connections to Shielding
Wires and cable conductors can be routed up to the arc ends of cable symbols to indicate an electrical connection to the shielding. If a wire is routed to a cable symbol end, a node shows at the midpoint of the arc at that end of the symbol, and the wire is attached to the node. One or both ends of the cable symbol can be routed to and have a node. The node display is controlled with the node_radiusDrawing setup option.
The symbol does not have any parameters that give it a name. However, the setup option cable_shield_report_name is used to specify a name to show in report tables as the From-To for wires routed from and to it.
New optional cable spool parameters and wire parameters can be used to override the diagram-wide names specified in the setup option.
