Matt's Tips: Using the "Draw Wire Tool" in PSoC Creator

Hey there, PSoC Creator users. Today’s topic is wiring in the schematic editor.  One of the most common things you may want to do is draw multiple wires without having to click the ‘w’ button every time.  This is very simple to do using the “Design Elements Palette” on the left side of the screen. The Design Element we are interested in is the “Draw Wire Tool”.  See the screen shot below.

PSoC Creator Draw Wire Tool

 

As most of you know, you can draw a wire by clicking that icon or by typing the keyboard shortcut (w).  What is less obvious is that you can double click that icon to keep the wire tool active.  Once you are done with your wiring, just hit the escape key (ESC). 

For more tips on wiring (multi-point wires, drawing/ripping busses, etc.), see the “Working with Wires” topic in the PSoC Creator help.
