Using Filter Tools

You can filter features from the ECAD data using filter tools, which define filter criteria.

To filter using filter tools:

  1. Click the Tools tab (top of the CircuitWorks application).
  2. From the Filter section of the Tools toolbar, click the filter tool for the feature type you want to filter.
    Only filter tools for features contained in the open ECAD file are available.
  3. From the Filters panel (right side of the CircuitWorks application), select your filter criteria.
    CircuitWorks grays out the items in the preview image and tree view.
    You can eliminate filtered-out items from the preview image by clicking Filtered Items (Preview toolbar).
